6/22 Patch Day Update

So it’s 3.3.5 patch day and it looks like the Authentication servers are down at this time. So, I’m going to update you with what I’ve been doing recently.

Mostly I’ve been making gold. It may seem stupid, but AH time is important time for me now, and I really enjoy it. Maybe I’ll post every step I’m doing at a later date.

Secondly, I started a Mage on Friday night and he’s about level 25 now. I’m leveling him fire instead of the frost I usually try to level my mages. I’m really enjoying burning things down in a matter of 2-4 casts. My gear is really focused on spellpower, and I’m in almost all blues because I’m running so many instances. I never thought I would enjoy mage, but since I was having fun with warlock just a few months ago, I thought I’d do something a little different.

That’s pretty much it.

Update: 12 June 2010

Well, I broke 1k gold on my bank alt and AH gamer. I was pretty happy about that, it’s kinda fun just spending about an hour or so making money in a fake game.

Otherwise, my actual character I’m playing is 37 now. I really seem to be getting levels pretty easily. I don’t know why this just seems to be going faster than usual. I don’t think Blizz changed the xp gains since I last leveled a character like this or what. Maybe, I’m just enjoying playing an Arms Warrior. I’ve always liked Arms and its fun to just do dps in parties. My dps is almost totally dependent on Rend and Overpower, and that’s ok with me. I’m not really worrying about upgrading my stuff like I usually do and I’m just using what I get for the most part. I do upgrade my weapons every 5 levels, though. That’s one thing that AH-gaming is helping me with.

Today I was in a group running Razorfen Downs. We had a pally tank and we were having an ok run. The mage was pulling aggro pretty often using Blizzard, but it really wasn’t anything unmanageable. Anyway, we fight Tuten’kash and the Plate drops. I, being a warrior, roll need on it and win. The paladin, who after I rolled typed “MINE!”, also rolled need and when he lost said, “that was the only reason I was even running this instance.” A few moments later he left without saying another word.

Now, if he had said something at the beginning of the instance that he was wanting this certain piece of eq, I would of happily passed on the item. But, what he did was be a big baby about the whole thing, be somewhat rude in his comments, and then went away pouting after he didn’t get what he wanted. I really think it was absurd and immature. If I wanted some specific piece of eq, I would speak up at the beginning of the instance instead of waiting until it dropped and after I rolled on it to say anything.

Whatever, it was someone being stupid, and I’ll drop it. I just think behavior like that is unnecessary and uncalled for.

Weekly Update

I got into the 30s with my new Warrior. I’m leveling as Arms because I’ve just always been attracted to it. In instance runs I do, I don’t even put tank as an option and just say I’m going to do dps. I really need some gear upgrades, but I’m not getting any decent drops in the runs I do.

I started playing the AH with a bank alt and gained about 350g this week with only 20g starting money. I feel pretty good about that and am interested in how much the coming weeks will bring in. I should mention that my bank alt currently has all bank slots with 16 slot bags.

The server I’m on, Staghelm, has a really inflated economy, at least to what I’m accustomed to, so the cost of things on the AH really allows money to grow when people underprice things so much.
