Yeah I call that purchase a good deal after all my frustration of attempting to make Darkmoon Cards some few posts back with Inscription on my DK. I call it a waste of money to try and craft all those cards. I could probably make the gold faster I guess. The other good news is I did sell all three of the Nobles Cards I made at decent profit which netted me just about 2k gold. On average the deck always up on AH at about 6500-7000g.
I decided I had more patience than some the sellers because I can just sit on the gold for someone desperate to sell their card and make some needed money. So I sat on all the cash and waited. I finally found someone in Trade desperate to cash out selling the card first at 6000g and asking for buyers. But no takers and none with extra cash. So I /w him and offered him a deal.
And with that deal sealed I acquired me the entire Darkmoon Card Nobles Deck to get the Greatness Card Trinket for my Retribution gear set. Much less headache and frustration than having to try to make all those cards and what seems like wasting money at the hand of the RNG with making random cards in the process with Inscription.
In the Milestone of things since started playing WotLK back in March from absolute broke at $0 gold I’ve finally climbed over 10K gold from spoils and plunder much of it from the AH. And thats with having all my usual repair bills. With patch 3.1 after buying dual spec a bit after I was down to 2k gold for funds. Since then my DK alt parked in Orgrimmar has made me back over 6k gold parked in Orgrimmar making trips back and forth to the AH and mailbox daily milling inks and selling Glyphs. Rest from doing the AT quests and dailies.
Buying the Nobles Card deck set me back a few thousand gold. But even in a tough WoW Economy I manage to make a bit of money just purely selling only several glyphs on the AH everyday and constantly researching to make new glyphs to find some corner of the market to sell to. Right now the only real fun part of the game really just playing the AH. Make sure to buy a few glyphs when you at the AH for all your alts and more, I can use the extra money
Was on and wasn’t doing too much at the time. Lots of people has left the guild and gone wherever so nothing scheduled to do. Saw someone in Trade asking for dps or OT for Ulduar. So said why not and answered and got a Invite to a smaller guild on the server 10 man raid. They really needed a OT since their usual tank wasn’t on so ended up doing that the whole run as the OT.
I was just glad to be able to see the place really. They seems like a good guild group so was using their Vent and got good instruction learning all the fights. First time though you just kinda taking it all in. Quite a bit to have to remember for the Tank and OT so I cant say I remember half of what I was told. But having being there re-reading some strats at the research department will make more sense at this point.
Only one tanking loot dropped a Belt
off Razorscale. The DK MT rolled a 99. Kinda hard to beat that. Rolled a 80 so he got it which was good. It was their guild run so all good. A few badges and seeing the place was just good enough for me. So we ended up killing 4 bosses.
We headed to the Antechamber and decided to do Kologarn the really huge boss with the arm standing by the bridge. We kinda got stuck on him due to the adds and the eye beam killing people. Each wipe something else went wrong where someone was lost at the beginning of the fight and it was pretty much a goner at that point. After several wipes on that boss the raid was called there.
Overall I was just glad to pick up 4 new Emblems of Valor and get to see the place which was really fun to say the least and have a little experience in Ulduar. The guild enjoyed me OTing for them. So I guess I’m on standby if im not doing much and what remains of my guild aren’t doing much either for Ulduar. Will see I guess.
I couldn’t really remember to take any clean raid shots. I had re-mapped my UI keys and I completely forgot that I also changed the keys that I use to remove my UI to take pictures. Will have to fix that later since I have no idea what its suppose to be at this point having changed the keys.
I read a nice post over at World of Matticus the other day about character names. So I remembered to check the Armory to see if my own character name was still unique. After over 3 years in the WoW Armory I guess I’m still a unique character name wise as of 05/19/09.
Way back when, I actually thought hard about the name for hours naming my Paladin. I completely made the name up thinking about all kinds of combinations of names or names I knew that was unique. Made it up to match what I think my character was going to be like.
At the time I was thinking of Braveheart from the movie back then. So I took the last half of the name thinking of names. I remember seeing a great Knight movie a popular movie it was though just can’t remember the name of it. But one the brave knight I remembered was actually named “Galo”. I remember liking that name as well. So when I was thinking of names that was my thought process. So I then combined both names and actually liked it and thus my own character name was born.
Quite a few people all the time always ask me how I got my name or if I got it randomly by the WoW name generator or if I made it up. I really did make it up to reflect my character as a knightly Paladin.
So after all this time I’m still unique in the WoW Armory name wise. I can claim total original ownership of my character name. And since its recorded here on the blog for history, anyone else after today that show up in the WoW Amory if they do is a total impostor.
How original is your character name in the WoW Amory and how many clones are they?
Something was definetely in the air.
Office Memo recieved 05/18/09 0133 from guild GM Warrior. The end has come. Due to RL issue and other things related to raiding requirements and lack of guild endgame raider dedication he will be quitting WoW and not renewing his account. You may or will have to eventually find a new home.
You are now even deeper in the Twilight Zone!
I was a original member of our first guild signing the guild charter before our guild second incarnation into it’s current form when due to RL issues our first GM and his wife quit. He was also a friend, was a sad time back then. I’ve been here from the beginning. I’ve seen many changes. I’ve stated through thick and thin when many came and went so the guild would have some good core members at heart.
I had plenty of time to move on but choose not to. I actually like and respected our GM. We’ve had good memories togeather all the way back in Kara. So it’s sad to hear he’s actually quitting.
Yet I understand it as well why he’s leaving. I sometime feel it as well.
Change has come to our guild.
Really does feel like the Twilight Zone.
