Breaking down Blizzard's world event so far {WoW}

Oct 29th 2008 10:23AM "I'll never undertand the whiners, this is the best event WOW has seen, but I guess people will always find a reason to moan and QQ."

What is there to understand? What's fun for you is not fun for other people. You are aware that they're as entitled to saying they didn't like it, as you are to say you loved it, right?

Also, when it comes to professing things like "this is the best event WoW has seen" please share what exactly you think entitles you to pass your personal opinion as fact.

Money money money by the pound {WoW}

Oct 30th 2007 9:16AM You mention spending a good chuck of gold on at least one alt. And you play on a very old server where level 70s are plenty. My point? other people are spending just as much money as you are on gear for alts, some of which is crafted. One of my alts has 136g in her pockets from just one LW item sold repeatedly for 4g90 for a couple of weeks on Elune. Doesn't seem like much, but I sure craft that item much faster than I'd farm a primal mana - I just make 10 or 20 and then sell one or two a day. And it pretty much always sell. It costs next to nothing to put up, so if it doesn't sell, it's no hardship. I just put it up again the next day.
Whatever your profession, there must be a couple of items you can make which will sell for a small fortune. Or rare recipes that you can pick up while you level your alts. My guildie once ran, and mentioned an experiment where she sold a recipe every day. Starting with 75s, she ended with 236g within a couple of weeks. While her guide is now outdated, we still apply the same principles. And she's sitting pretty on 3500g or so after buying two epic flying mounts, and she's barely even played in weeks.
As someone else said before, you just need to find what works for you. It could be just making a run to the Stomgarde Keep with a couple of empty bags to pick up the first aid manuals.
Another option is to have an enchanter. Leveling an enchanter is a huge money sink. Or an investment, depending on how you look at it. It costs nothing to put up enchanting mats at auction. And if any of your characters is a crafter, there is items you can craft with very easily farmed mats that can make you a small fortune from DEing. Not necessarily very high level items, either.

PS: that Deadmines farm run suggestion by Bobby Hansen? Golden. With a mage it takes maybe 20 minutes. price everything 1g. Mail of the Bear? 2-3g. You're almost certain to sell everything, even those Whale items, for way more than they're worth. Because there is simply nothing for level 20 and lower in the AH these days. It might not make you as much as the dailies, but it might be more fun.
