Stopped Playing!!

Hi,

I'm stopping playing for a while. I have elbow pain and I'm pretty sure it's from gaming on my laptop. So, I'm going to stop for a while and see if my elbows recover.

Cheers.

My 12th level 120!!

Hi,

Yep, I got Elfyvoidbrit to 120 this week. Lots of moving between Drustvar, Tirigarde Sound and Stormsong Valley to get there.

Yay - 120
Once she got all the Benethic gear from Voidbrit, she headed to Nazjatar to get the 370 Staff, get the rune quests unlocked, and get the new follower. It's my standard thing when a character gets to 120. She hasn't raised an ally to level 3 yet, but that will come soon enough. She made it to 367 iLvL this week.

I also did a bit of leveling on my level 90s this week. Looneybrit made it to level 93. Madbrit made it into Draenor and made it to level 91. I also got back on Unstablebrit on Draenor this week (who will be my next 120), and just got her to 113.

Of course, I did the LFR stuff for gold on all my 120s this week, including Elfyvoidbrit. There was also a 2K Emissary for Alliance that I got done on all of them. No selling of Mats or Pets this week.

Oh, one thing I decided to do to manage War Resources. Instead of waiting for a character to get less than 200 and then get some more, I decided to work on getting more on whichever character has the lowest number each day.

OK, let's see how the gold has grown over the last two weeks.

Ghostlands: Base: 500K x 6, 2K x 6. Priestybrit: 557,549
Silver Hand: Base - 500K x 4, 2K x 8. Battybrit: 457,285
Garrosh: Base: 500K x 4, 2K x 6. Elfyvoidbrit: 69,578
Draenor + EI: Base: 500K x 6, 2K x 5. Boomybrit: 284,920

Overall Base: 10 Million + 50K => 10,050,000
Characters: 1,369,332

That's a total of 11,419,332. Not bad as this was really the first week back to making gold.

Done with Classic!!

Hi,

Yeah well, that didn't last long. I think the breaking point for me came when I got my Warlock to level 24. Getting to anywhere near 25 was taking forever, and she was dying on quests even when grouped with others. There were other things that were getting really annoying too. Losing the Voidwalker on a Flight Path, not being able to see quests or objectives and having to go to wowhead for every single quest, and things like that. They were new and fresh for the first week or so, but just got monotonous after that. So, I decided to go back to retail on Sunday night. I did create more characters in Classic, but that's not important now.

So, back to Retail and Nazjatar we go:

Lockybrit in Nazjatar
I got my characters doing World Quests in Nazjatar again. The Rune and Key Line ones, that is. Also, Huntingbrit and Priestybrit (who are still to get their 6th Champion) did the opposite faction Emissary to get some more rep. There was also a 2K gold Emissary up for Alliance, but I only managed to do it on some of them, not all this time. I also did the LFR gold making on only one character on Garrosh this week.

I tried to get Mardivas' Lab done on all characters before the reset, but strangely, a couple hadn't unlocked it yet. I don't really know why, but know it's a drop from mobs. And as I don't kill many mobs while in Nazjatar, I may never open it up on them. I'm also trying to get 'raise an ally to level 3' done on all of them.

I also leveled Elfyvoidbrit yesterday. She's almost at 116 now.

I won't report on gold this week, but I will get back to that next week.

Some Good Progress!!

Hi,

Well, some good progress all around this week in Classic. I've now got 4 characters on Old Blanchy, and I even started a Horde one on Azuresong.

Lockybrit made it to level 21 this week. She went to Redridge Mountains at level 18 and tried to get some quests done there. But I got absolutely destroyed by the Whelps while trying to get Condor meat. Then I realized that the way to go (certainly for me) is to do low level quests that are green to level up mostly, and be very careful about trying to do the yellow quests. So, she went off to Darkshore (quite a hike to get there - tram to Ironforge, walk to Loch Modan and Wetlands to get to Menethil Harbor, and then boat to Auberdine). It's good that there are tons of 10-20 options. She had a lot of fun in Darkshore, and is now ready to go back to Redridge Mountains. Her Tailoring is coming along nicely and she's got enough Wool Cloth to make some Woolen Bags.

Quiverbrit made it to level 15. She did lots of Elwyn Forest, and is now doing some Loch Modan. She'll do Darkshore too soon. She's still getting lots of Linen Cloth, and sends it to Lockybrit for making Linen Bags to vendor.

Quiverbrit in Stormwind
I started two more characters this week on Alliance. Priestybrit (Human) the Priest with Mining and Engineering, and Stabbybrit (Human) the Rogue, with Skinning and Leatherworking. They are both now level 7.

The Horde character I made this week is Corruptbrit (Undead) the Warlock. I took Tailoring and Enchanting on her as the first character on the realm. She made it to level 9.

Lockybrit has made it to 4g now. Whoo Hoo.

Old Blanchy:

Lockybrit (21) - Human/Warlock - (Tailoring/Enchanting)
Quiverbrit (15) - Night Elf/Hunter - (Herbalism/Alchemy)

Priestybrit (7) - Human/Priest - (Mining/Engineering)
Stabbybrit (7) - Human/Rogue - (Skinning/Leatherworking)

Azuresong:

Corruptbrit (9) - Undead/Warlock - (Tailoring/Enchanting)

That's it for this week. More leveling next week.

Cheers.

Starting Completely Over - Again!!

Hi,

Well well. I've decided that I'm going to stop playing retail WoW, and just play Classic WoW for the next few months at least. With that, let me tell you about my Classic experience.

Well, I started on an RP realm, because I was in the mode of thinking that CRZ existed and that it would be quieter there. So, I got a Warlock to level 8. But then I realized that I wanted to be on Old Blanchy with some other friends of mine. So, I deleted my Warlock and started over. I got a Human Warlock started on Old Blanchy with Tailoring/Enchanting. Once I got to about level 10, I realized that I needed more Linen cloth, so I started a Night Elf Hunter with Herbing/Enchanting and she funneled all the Linen Cloth over to my Warlock.

Characters on Old Blanchy
OK, how is Classic? Well, it's more difficult, grindy and takes way longer to do anything than in retail. But it's fun. Lots of fun. It's great seeing the zones the way they were at the start. It's great that professions are actually fun again. It's great that 10s seems like a lot. It's great getting a new talent each level, and great paying for new abilities.

I did Elwyn Forest on my Warlock, headed to Westfall, hated it, so headed over to Loch Modan. Then she went back and did a bit of Sentinel Hill stuff in Westfall and got to level 15. Now the plan is to go to Redridge Mountains.

On my Hunter, I did Teldrassil until high level 9, and then decided I wanted to do Elwyn Forest. So, she did the trek all the way through Wetlands to get to Ironforge and then Stormwind City. She set her Hearth there. Then, when she got to level 10, she got the quest to go BACK TO TELDRASSIL!! OMG. Back to Ironforge, flight to Menethil Harbor, over to Auberdine etc. and eventually she got Pet training. I didn't realize that the level 10 Pet training quests are in your home zone. Sigh.

Anyway, she's level 11 now, and has finally got a wolf pet.

Oh, I was debating whether to join a guild, or start my own personal guild. I finally decided to start a personal guild and offered 5s for signatures. I got my personal guild, but then realized there was no guild bank. In fact, nothing of any benefit for me at all. Oh well, maybe stuff will be added later.

Talking about later, I really want Expansions to be added to Classic over time. I want to experience Burning Crusade and WOLK etc. What would be perfect IMHO is two games on the same timeline, separated by 15 years.

Oh well, we'll have to wait and see.

Here's gold situation: 11 million gold on retail. Less than 1g on Classic :)

Old Blanchy:

Lockybrit (15) - Human/Warlock - (Tailoring/Enchanting)
Quiverbrit (11) - Night Elf/Hunter - (Herbalism/Alchemy)


I'll probably start more characters next week. Maybe some Horde one on a different realm :)

Cheers.

Upgrading with Mana Pearls!!

Hi,

I realized that with all the Beethic gear I'm getting from missions and World Quests and all the mana pearls I'm getting from them too, I won't need to be saving up tons of mana pearls to buy Benethic gear for alts who make it to 120. So, I decided to start upgrading gear (for 20 each) for all my characters except for a couple.

Flictionbrit upgrading gear
So, the iLvL of nearly all my 120s increased this week.

I leveled Elfyvoidbrit a bit this week. She made it to 115. I didn't level anyone else though. I spent the rest of the week doing LFRs on my 120s and doing emissaries for 2K each, and selling mats and pets on all my realms. Generally, a lot of gold making. I won't be buying any tokens anytime soon though, because the price is now around 160K because of the WoW Classic launch.

Talking about WoW Classic, I did dabble in it a bit yesterday and today. Yesterday was horrible. I couldn't even get a kill in on a Kobold because of so many people on the server. I couldn't get on Bloodsail Bucaneers either because of the 40 minute wait. A totally different matter this morning. I could get on fine, and kill stuff and make progress. My Warlock (Humanbrit) made it to level 5. No junk from fishing to supplement funds though, so I only have just over 2s on Classic. Tailoring/Enchanting on this one. Just about to do some Goldshire quests.

So, how much gold did we make this week? Well, we got to over 500K on the funded char on Ghostlands, and the one on Garrosh too. I'll do a new one on Garrosh, but don't want to on Ghostlands, because I'll be buying tokens soon.

Ghostlands: Base: 500K x 6, 2K x 6. Priestybrit: 534,028
Silver Hand: Base - 500K x 4, 2K x 8. Battybrit: 442,426
Garrosh: Base: 500K x 4, 2K x 6. Elfyvoidbrit: 12,684
Draenor + EI: Base: 500K x 6, 2K x 5. Boomybrit: 276,072

Overall Base: 10 Million + 50K => 10,050,000
Characters: 1,265,210

That's a total of 11,315,210. Wow! 230K this week. All the selling of Mats and Pets really paid off.

My 11th Level 120!!

Hi,

Yay. I got Priestybrit to 120 on Garrosh earlier this week. She got full Benethic gear, and headed into Nazjatar to get a 370 staff and some other stuff. Then she cherry-picked World Quests to get a couple of Rings and Trinkets. So now, she's sitting at 385 iLvL.

Priestybrit
She had no trouble doing all the LFR dungeons and so made tons of gold this week in leveling up, and running LFRs. Now that I've added another 120 to the mix, I'll be getting a base of 44.1K from LFRs, instead of the 41K I'm currently getting.

There wasn't much else going on this week. A little bit of leveling on Unstablebrit on Garrosh. Also, I did make sure to do the Weekly Boss on nearly all my 120s this week, because it gave 250 WRs. There were also some 2K Emissaries this week. Indeed, there was one yesterday that is still in progress for all my Alliance characters.

I didn't sell anything on the AH this week, but will make an attempt to sell mats and pets on all realms in this coming week.

Let's see how the gold stands now:

Ghostlands: Base: 500K x 6, 2K x 6. Priestybrit: 459,843
Silver Hand: Base - 500K x 4, 2K x 8. Battybrit: 386,823
Garrosh: Base: 500K x 3, 2K x 5. Shammybrit: 428,331
Draenor + EI: Base: 500K x 6, 2K x 5. Boomybrit: 259,343

Overall Base: 9.5 Million + 48K => 9,548,000
Characters: 1,534,340

That's a total of 11,082,340. Over 11 Million now!!
