What We've Been Doing:
Deva Marie’s twitter post of the Dolly and Dot song.
Fishing, Mining, Herbing, Cataclysm, Eastern Kingdom, Kalimdor, Halfhill, Garrison, selling anything good that is not chained to the floor. 375 auctions and counting, about 150k profit this week, slow and steady climb, much spent on Mats from the AH to craft.
Current handicap is Volatile fires at 59 gold each on AH. Easier to farm at throne of elements with fishing while watching a movie, dual box 2 fishermen on separate realms, Warmode on/off depending how imbalanced your realm is.
Can definately notice when the High school kids are in class, much easier to win Hearthstone or do incursions. Getting Conquest rewards from Incursions with Warmode on.
Heart of Azeroth nearly at 65, had to buy an effect from unshackled only had 2 prior, running LFR to remove the quest from questlog about the aqueous reliquiary, part of Heart of Azeroth progression. 3 effects and HoA 65 will signal the semi retirement of main until next expansion… unless there are goods to be crafted for the AH.
“Wetlands Quests” complete storyline finished on Level 51 Gnome rogue, 2 sharp daggers and poison make a big buff into DPS quick completion of the zone. Also having a 2 seater mount you can buff/shrink travel speed vs time spent on archeology for fast leveling. I have leveled about 9 rogues with varying degree of speed and usually good success rate in dungeons, this gnome rogue is leveling without dungeons, the experience is completely different, mining and herbing then shipping the materials to a resource poor AH character. The Toy to get all the FP is invaluable if you dont have a friend or second account to fly you around.
No equipment until later on, so rivers have to be swam across, the amber scorpion is surprisingly lifelike when wading across water, the tail seems to propel it like a crocodile.
“The Fourth War” completed war campaing in Battle for Azeroth.
“Power Creep” raise an essence to Rank 3 for the Heart of Azeroth via the Heartforge.
Collecting a lot of whiptail and cinderbloom on multiple servers, gearing for production style assembly line for mounts and resurrecting farming at Halfhill for cheap mats to craft Living Steel (currently very expensive on my server)
Warlock level 22
Rogue level 21
Hunter level 14
Priest level 14 -> 22
Alchemy leveling to 106, needing Bruiseweed now to continue.
Fishing to 142 fishing for Oily Blackmouth for the Blackmouth Oil in Alchemy to make the Swim Speed Potion.
Shaman level 13
Warrior level 12
Mage level 11
Druid level 1
Sorry about the lapse last week. Don't have much news for this week, but at least I remembered to do a submission :)
Have fun in game, waiting for school settle down enough so I can carve some game time in. I think someone fed the Freshmen after midnight, many have turned into gremlins. When did it ever become ok to intentionally break rulers and lab equipment? Kids these days!
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
Addon(s) of the week:
