So, I was indeed bored and frustrated and quit the game for quite a while. But then I figured out what was getting in the way of me enjoying the game. It was the garrison chores. So, after a while, I decided to play free form, starting up on another realm, and starting from scratch.
The realm I chose was Garrosh. It's a fairly low populated realm with Alliance bias. I started playing on Alliance.
I started with the idea of only play one character, and seeing what it was like only playing one character at max level. I leveled a Priest (Tailoring/Herbing). Because of my dislike for CRZ, I only leveled in the morning before work pretty much, but did do some dungeons in the evening. For the first character, it was - Get to 100 as quickly as possible! I got her to 100, but then realized that I needed to buy Sorcerous Earth and Savage Blood to upgrade crafted gear. Yuck. So I decided to start another character. I started a Hunter (Mining/JC). Meanwhile, I was getting the Garrison in full gold mode, and getting the shipyard fully set up on my Priest, so lots of Baleful gear was coming in.
When I took a look at all the slots Baleful gear took up from shipyards, I settled on a crafting set of Chest, Ring, and Weapon. So, to craft these for my Hunter, I'd need an Engineer for the Gun, and a Leatherworker for Chest. So, that's two more characters. Aww, what the heck, let's get all the professions. So, 4 more after that, and that got it up to 8 characters. I only have 2 to 100 now, the Priest and Hunter. All the others are on their way. I'm now only leveling by questing, and only leveling in the morning. That's why it's been rather slow.
Then, I realized that on all my realms, I still don't have a max level DK or Warrior. So I started those two up and now have 10 characters. I've been leveling mining on the DK and she's almost ready to hit Outland.
Here they are:
Priestybrit (100) - Human/Priest (Herbalism 700/Tailoring 700) - iLvl 701
Draenybrit (100) - Draenei/Hunter (Mining 700/Jewelcrafting 650) - iLvl 673
Stabbybrit (78) - Gnome/Rogue (Skinning 453/leatherworking 95)
Pallybrit (60) - Draenei/Paladin (Mining 237/Blacksmithing 105)
Panadabrit (76) - Pandaren/Hunter (Mining 432/Engineering 92)
Shammybrit (28) - Draenei/Shaman (Herbalim 117/Inscription 91)
Blondybrit (24) - Human/Warlock (Herbalism 98/Inscription 90)
Nightybrit (24) - Night Elf/Priest (Herbalim 96/Enchanting 90)
Frostybrit (60) - Draenei/Death Knight (Mining 275/Jewlcrafting 78)
Smashbrit (14) - Draenei/Warrior (Mining 31/Blacksmithing 45)
I'm still doing Garrison missions on all other 22 leveled level 100s I have to keep the gold flowing in., and open salvage crates from all of them on the weekends and vendor the results. I make about 100K per week. About 70K from the missions and vendoring, and about 30K from the AH for things like Huge Ogre Cache, Medallion of the Legion etc. All this obviously changes tomorrow, when I'll cut back to only doing garrison stuff on my tailors, and not making gold from it.
I recently just bought 2 more tokens for my main account, and two more for my secondary account. Didn't really put much of a dent in my 6 Million gold :)
Other stuff I'm doing is gearing up my characters on the other Alliance realm. I really stopped playing them before Tanaan Jungle patch, so I've now taken them all into Tanaan and am getting them some good baleful gear.
The plan for next week is to switch from Garrison for gold, to finishing up questing and doning bonus objectives for gold (on Draenor realm). I'll be leveling on Garrosh, and hope to get both Stabbybrit and Pandabrit to level 80.
