Breakfast Topic: Transmogrification means revenge {WoW}

Oct 9th 2011 8:38AM The only set I've kept intact all these years on shaman is the Tier 1 Earthfury set. I wish I still had the upgraded epic dungeon set Rolling Thunder, I think it was called.

Now I've been running BC dungeons and have all the pieces for the recolored D1 set (teal in color) & the recolored Tier 2 set:

Breakfast Topic: Ambassador Jenkins, Bane of The Fallen King {WoW}

Oct 19th 2010 8:48AM Originally I was my old school PVP rank of Sergeant. Then I acquired the The Seeker title. I think that lasted a few weeks until I received Loremaster. I've been sporting that until just recently I earned the Exalted working on my Insane title. About 60 epic decks or so away from that.

I've probably amassed 30 or so odd titles but really prefer the ones involving questing and the grind like Insane.

Around Azeroth: Drift away {WoW}

Oct 11th 2010 1:46PM Day after day I'm more confused
So I look for the light in the pouring rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame

Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Beginning to think that I'm wastin' time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
I'm countin' on you to carry me through

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitar's comin' through to soothe me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You help me along makin' me strong

Around Azeroth: Until the end of the world {WoW}

Aug 3rd 2010 12:16PM Haven't seen you FOR quite a while
I was down the HOLE just passing time
Last time we met was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and groom
We ate the food, we drank the wine
Everybody having a good time
Except you
You were talking about the end of the world

Insider Trader: Starting your own crafting empire {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2010 8:33AM If you are going to have a crafting empire, do yourself a favor and create a bank alt that has it's own guild and be prepared to spend gold on a few tab. Having a mod like Altoholic (to track where stuff is on characters) & a bag organizer mod are also highly recommended like Bagnon or ArkInventory. I choose a DK because I had decided I wasn't too excited about leveling one so I'd be ok with just making that my permenant bank alt. Plus, he's already high enough level that I could pick up one of the gathering professions & easily start leveling mining, herbing or skinning & at least get to the upper 200s without much issue.

I've pretty created my "empire" over the past few years. It wasn't necessarily on purpose to level each profession but it's just sort of evolved that way due to alt-itis. You have these new characters that are basically gathering material by the truckload: ore, herbs, skins, fangs, essence, fire, water etc. I didn't sell a lot of these of these materials and ended up hording them. Pretty soon, these materials would take up so much space I'd think "Hmmm, I have an awful lot of ore, maybe I could level up JC or skinning?" I think when I decided to level engineering on my warrior back in BC, I was already sitting on most everything I needed to power level it up in just about 4 or 5 hours. I think I spent some gold on Heavy Stones or some such and maybe a few old world Wind or Water Essence.

I've probably made enough items via tailoring, blacksmithing, & leatherworking to have leveled up another enchanter twice over!

Nearly 5 years later I have my main which is JC/Enchanter, a herbalist/tailoring, a miner/scribe, a miner/engineer, a skinner/leatherworker, a herbalist/alchemist, & a miner/blacksmith. I'll probably at some point double up one of the miners with another profession instead, maybe alchemy but my DK guild bank alt is quite satisfied with finally having empty bank tabs & spaces.

I'll have to see what Cataclysm brings with professions to see if I make any drastic changes.
