I wanted to add a quick note, then start back with the original topics that I started. I am sorry for the absence. A cascade of things happened to prevent me from being able to post like I would have liked too. I will start at the beginning.
Step 1 – The OMG: I normally write posts while I am on a plane traveling from one locale to another. I have made plenty of trips since my last post, but I had one major problem. That’s step one if I remember…Admit you have a problem. Well, here goes…My MacBook Air that I travel and run my WoW Gold Making business with died due to a complete SSD failure. It was not recoverable and I lost all of the WoWEcon posts that I had drafted along with the outline of the program. Needless to say, between my travels and having to drop it off for warrantee work. It took longer than I would have like to get back up and running.
Step 2 - The rehab:After download 4.1 my add-ons (many thanks to TSM), and setting up everything again, I am left with run a the mill subjects that were news to me, but already posted on many of the other sites. I am finally back to where I want to be. Yesterday, was an easy 11K Friday without much of a time investment. I have mainly been focused on Glyphs, Enchants, a bit of Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing (mainly belts and spikes). I noticed that I am way more low key. I haven’t cancelled and reposted my glyphs since the break. Don’t get me wrong. I love having 300K in liquid gold, but I am lacking something to spend it on.
Step 3 – The challenge: A friend of mine is on another server with 10 toons from 80 to 85. However, he is struggling to have much in the way of gold, generally between 6 and 15k. He needs help, his mounts are slow, dailies are too repetitive. What is a guy to do? Well, I started a DK on his server. Holy Cow, Batman! It looks amazing. Almost every profession has a ton of profit possibilities. It is way less competitive than mine. So look for updates on my status. I am planning on starting off with Inscription. It is easily the best early grind profession. I haven’t had much luck with making anything else profitable at low levels. Well, stayed tuned. I just left the starter area with about 10g to my name on the server. I also need to level another toon in my main group to get Tailoring (my last profession to max). BigJimm has kept me out of the bag market for a while with his…hmmm…how to say it kindly….bitchin’..no…hatred…no….waffling. Miss you Jimm. I hope the move went well.
Cheers! actually I prefer skål, but it’s not quite as well known.
