If I Could Start Over, I Would…
I’ve thought about it and to be honest there isn’t much I would do different but a few things and here is why.
The day I started paying for WoW after I bought the game disk at Best Buy and a WoW BC Strategy Guide the character I rolled on 01/22/07 a Horde BE Paladin (Galo). It would be more than obvious to you that its the very same character I play, main as and blog about life as. Galo also has the 2 very same profession that he choose on day one being both Alchemy & Herbalism. The day I entered Outland almost every profession that I had was almost at max skill level. So I’ve being more than happy with all my choices.
What would I do different starting over if had to do:
2. Install AuctioneerAdvancedSuite addon right from the get go. Did’t find Auctioneer till my 30’s leveling.
3. I would mine every node as fast as I could find it using mining sell it on AH and use the money to invest in buying the biggest bag slots up to 16 slots. Then level and mine & herb everywhere for gold and cash leveling up.
3a. Biggest problem had was not having big enough bags & bag space starting out.
4.***At 70 what I would do different is instead of running Instance for Tanking gear like I did to gear up before I had my Epic Mount. This time I would spend all that time Mining & Herbing Outland dry of Ore and herbs selling it on AH to get to 5200g for the Epic Mount. Having done that, I could now mine and herb Outland faster and make more money with more dailies and gathering profession at a faster rate to pay for all my gear enchanting and mats. Then decide to gear up and go raid. At that point, having money would be no problem at all and neither is having repair bills either. (Doing that would solve any money problem I could ever have in WoW)
So knowing what I know now, if I really had to do it all over again I would do just that!
