  Sold a Medallion of the Legion for 4.6K gold this week and 2 Battie pets for 13k each. Bought a vial of the sands for 52k and sold it for 71k.





Kurly 

Dragon Flight is out of sight!!!

Kurlie dings 70……now who?

@ss has been kicked in PVP

Sit for 15 seconds and look.






Aprillian

Catching pets in Zenith is amazing. But come on, why do you make video players try to throw? If we could throw, we wouldn’t be playing video games!


The agent system is addictive. Did cooking challenges.





Legions in Population: One has been disappointing. Either not enough players or player don’t revive.

Grand Nagus

I’m back after some time off I needed to recover from a stroke I had on Sep. 11th.

I feel way better and I hope the last few issues will resolve themself soon.

Overall I’m really lucky it turned out the way it did.

What I can say is that if a friend or loved one feels or acts different, not normal, don’t take it lightly. Had I not been aware of the risk, the potential of what the symptoms were pointing at, I might not have gotten away with it as well as I did.


WoW bringing back “systems” - a post on the MMO-Champion forum.

I think WoW can make systems, it’s just gotta be the right ones.

Preach interviewed devs and they  basically said had they known artifacts would have been the hit they where, they’d have kept them, but since they had developed and worked on azerite armor and that entire system for 2 years they couldn’t just scrap that system and the work hours tied to it.

What do we learn from this:

Make the right type of systems, aka had artifacts been a system that could have coexisted with azerite armor, all would have been good for the artifacts.

How you do that doesn’t matter, if it’s evergreen, purely cosmetic content, it doesn’t really matter in the end.

In case of the AP systems it did matter, since one power system was replaced by another, but it’s on the devs to create the systems that can survive the end of an expansion and become evergreen.

Torgast can be one such system, or it could have been. The Mage Tower could have been, but in my opinion, it’s too small scale to work, but it’s a good try to bring it back.

Make dragonriding evergreen and let the player use it game wide, once 10.0 content has been completed. Until then it should only be usable on the Dragon Isle.

Not a big issue, I believe. And once it’s unlocked on the first character, make the world wide unlock account wide.


Just got the Reaper Job to 90.

Sold a chest piece for over 400k gil, never thought it would sell, but it did, really happy with that.

What We've Been Doing:


Constraxx

  Sold 4 or 5 Vials of the Sands this week, a medallion of the Legion, Battie for 14k, and Bone Wasp for 8K.

  Did Ashley pet battle in Shadowmoon valley a couple of times this week to level pets.  I also did the pet in Frostfire Ridge to earn a few more treats and sold a few pets on the AH which were of common quality, I didn’t bother making them rare since they were the only pets on the AH.

  Playing a lot of Mechwarrior 5 : Mercenaries, trying to get to 40,000,000 C-bills to afford a heavy or assault  mech.  Got Double bonus on Salvage loot for doing a hard mission so I can now loot more medium mechs, I got 2 bushwackers, and 1 Hunchback, and a Firstarter.  Learned a little better how to do cold storage with my mechs.  See that there is a cost calculated for going to industrial zone to repair and flight back (time sensitive) for missions.  Started doing 2 mission runs, sometimes have to restart the mission to avoid pilot injury or death.  Repeated a mission over and over to do like dailies to crank revenue to 30 million C-bills.

  Pretty much done with LFR, just looking forward to new dungeons, I may level the Tauren druid first and just do professions with the rogue to start.  Really looking forward to the new stuff for professions.

  Ah not going very well, just 200k earned this week.  No tokens purchased or sold.  Bought Heroic Dragonflight for my second Account and paid for 3 months on it, I wanted to have a boost handy.


Kurly

Getting ready for the xpac tomorrow!!!!
