Jun 22nd 2009 7:54AM I've currently re-engineered my engineer into a mysterious man in black (think The Shadow!) who appears and disapears in a puff of smoke after making some doom mongering comment in Dalaran.
The White Smoke flairs are perfect for this.
Lay down two or three at your feet then teleport or log out.
It makes for a great character...
My other favorite moment as an engineer was early on in the Deadmines when I thought it fun to impress my friends with the mind control cap. Used it on Sneeds Shredder for 30 seconds then ran screaming all the way to the exit when he turned on me!
Apr 28th 2009 3:32AM There was only one reason for my mage to go there!
Got 100 eggs in about 40 mins in Dolannar. Only one camper there in the middle of the afternoon. He bitched and moaned that everyone was whispering him hate mail.
Found the best way to get rid of him was to camp the same spot. He couldn't handle the competition angave up after a few seconds.
Can't believe people arnt enjoying this. Racing others to get to an egg is great fun!
Apr 23rd 2009 3:26AM Just wanted to say how much I like this blog regardless of the total hammering it received from the very arrogant Marko over at just my two copper.
His blog is the nerdy end of the money aspect of the game. Take anything to the extreme and you can wring all the fun out of it and Marko does this with gusto.
Time is money offers practical tips and hints to a general player base who don't have the time or inclination to "play the market" for hours every day.
Keep it up...
...oh and I'm sure your readership is much larger than his so Marko can go suck on it!
Apr 19th 2009 8:28PM Met a holy priest on quel thalas realm called "SoSuMe".
Not a pun but v funny...
Apr 17th 2009 9:39AM Back in the days when you could spirit res from anywhere I took a little run through Wetlands at lev 23 and died. I then ran across Thandol Span and towards Hillsbrad having no idea where I was going. It was so cool seeing Stromgarde (which I thought must be an instance or something it looked so grand) then though thoradin's wall and past Durnholde then ressing at Southshore.
Imagine my surprise when I found level 20 ish mobs there. I thought they'd be lev 60!
My method for getting to Menethil was to bubble and jump off the dam in Loch Modan therefore bypassing the whole of Khaz Modan and those filty orcs!
Apr 7th 2009 11:21AM I've read Lord Of The Clan's and Through The Dark Portal and they added so much to playing WOW for me.
Christie Golden writes very well and forms wonderful characters when they could very easily be lost in the massive world of Azeroth.
Looking forward to reading this to make Northrend a little more exciting...
Second thoughts I wish I had held off levelling to 80 until after reading this..... Bu**er!
Apr 3rd 2009 7:53AM Engineering + Mining = POOR!
Good idea to do this on an alt now you have a main fully geared. I chose the engineering and mining route on my main when I first started and promptly got no where money wise.
Now that I've dinged 80 I've taken to solo running Vanilla Wow instances that I never got the chance to visit on my way up. Grinding mats for my alts. Ran Stratholme 3 times last night and still the baron didn't drop the deathcharger.
Will try again tomorrow. I want that Albino Drake for the 50 Mounts achievement!
Mar 31st 2009 8:43AM What they don't tell you about the Gnomeregan disaster is that in addition to heavy levels of radiation the city was also blighted by a terrible sound. A hinky kind of puppet show tune that just goes on and on and on....
Anyone trying to re-inhabit now would be driven mad within just a day or so!
Sure they can clean up the radiation but there's no way to get rid of that god darned tune!
Mar 26th 2009 4:21AM A good tip is to pick a short word that will appear in all your character names. Mine is ash. Each character has ash somewhere in their name. That way my guildies know its me regardless of whichever alt I'm playing.
