Whatever Wednesday – What’s Been Up

Posted January 5th, 2011 by Miss Mediocre

Hello Readers,

I thought I’d use my Whatever Wednesday post to talk about what all I have been up to in WoW lately. I have two characters at level 85 now, my Paladin and my Priest. I have been trying to get my Priest into some decent gear, because eventually I’d like to get into a raid with her. I joined a raid guild, the 5th best raid guild on my server, but I’m not sure what I think of it so far. One of my oldest WoW buddies is in the guild, along with my brother, but there’s just something about the average raider’s attitude that rubs me the wrong way. I have run heroics with a few members, and they go out of their way to try to help me get gear, but if the whole time they treat everyone else in the group like crap, it’s hard for me to be thankful, or even want to group with them again. It’s always been “Attitude > Skills” for me when it comes to players, so I’m foreseeing a bit of trouble “fitting in”.

Aside from running heroics, I spent 6000g today to finally finish leveling my enchanting to 525. It was a lot of gold, but there are enchants I want that aren’t available in the Auction House, so it was time I just learned to do them myself, lol. I’m most looking forward to Power Torrent, which will take me 5 Maelstrom Crystals to buy, and another 5 to make, but I’m hoping I can make back my gold by being one of the first people on my server with it. Why do I want this enchant so bad you ask? Well to put on my new Staff of Sorcerer-Thane Thaurissan of course!

I’ve been looking for this Archaeology Relic for days now, and finally found it yesterday afternoon. It was the 54th Dwarven Relic I solved, so I definitely put a lot of hours into looking for it, but I think it was worth it. I was expecting to equip it on my Shadow Priest and suddenly see myself doing 20k dps, but unfortunately it didn’t make that much of a difference. It’s still awesome that I found it though. I’m always last place for dps, but I am wearing a few greens, so I think that will change once I catch up gear wise!

Other than tones of dailies, I also made a new character! (I know, crazy, I already have way too many) I didn’t have an Alliance Deathknight on my main account though, so I created a pink-haired Night Elf one named Fuchsia! I used to like playing my DK, before I left her behind on a deserted server all by herself, so hopefully I enjoy the new frost dps! My brother made a DK with me named Listen, and we’re going to try to level them together.

As one final note, has anyone else seen the Black Embersilk Gown? I haven’t been running heroics with my tailor, so I can’t make them because they require a chaos orb, but omg is it ever pretty! I can’t wait to make one! It’s totally useless I know, but I’m a sucker for pricey vanity items. If you are too, you can buy the pattern for 8 bolts of Embersilk from the cloth trader in Twilight Highlands.

Hope you’re all having as much fun in game as I am!

Thanks for Reading!

    Hey Miss M. Happy New Year!

    Good luck with your new raiding guild. I tried one last year and didnt fit in. I hope you will. Maybe you can change their attitudes toward other players for the better.

    I finally joined you as one of the WoW players to have an 80 of every class. Unfortunately, now we have to get them to 85. I also have two at 85, but that leave 12 more to level up. I was going to brag about having an 80 of every race, but with the two new races, I’ve got some more work to do for that.

    Grats on the Archaeology relic. My alchemist is busy searching achraeology sites hoping beyond hope to discover the Tol Vir recipe for the Sands of Time mount. Maybe someday the rng will be on my side.

    Hope the raiding guild works out. I’m still mired in the doldrums of leveling my profession alts. I have 525 BS, LW, Ench and Alchemy plus all the gathering profs. Working now on my Warlock so I can get him to 75 and eligible for 525 access for Tailoring and Inscription. After that, its JC and Engineering.

    I feel your pain on guilds. Its tough sledding out there for anyone trying to find a guild now–the new leveling requirements seem to cast in more stark relief the differences between casual/social and raiding. There used to be room in the middle for some hybrids but not anymore.

    I’ll keep reading.

    QuietKjun : That rng can be so cruel, but sometimes it makes me so happy, lol. I hope you find your recipe! I would love to be able to fly around as a dragon, but I’ve only noticed one person with the recipe on my server so far, and they were selling the vial for 20k + mats :S Too much for me still, maybe after I make another 100k or so it won’t seem like so much and I can bring myself to get one!

    Happy New Year :)

    Hi Kammler! Glad to hear from you! :) Good luck with all the professions. I can’t believe how much time/gold I’ve sunk into the few I’ve maxed now, lol. I’m not touching LW or BSing for a while, I used up all my ore on Jewelcrafting, and have yet to level a skinner, so they have to wait. I’m 525 JC, Ench and Tailoring, and plan to work on Alchemy and Engineering next.

    I’m happy to at least be in a guild now. I’m still not sure if my multi-character / gold making focus leaves time for gearing and raiding, but the Guild level 9 perks are nice at least! Hopefully it works out, now that you have to gain rep with your guild, it hurts so much more to gquit!
