20 Days to 70...

So, after a much entertaining days of my life, I reached level 70 on the 12th of August. Oh, after that the gold situation got even more easy as you can make at least about 200G a day off of the daily quests. So, I think back to my friend, the level 40 on a PvP server that wants to be a gold farmer... WTF is he thinking? I dunno but it can't be right.

Since I hit 70 I went out, finished a ton of quests, got my first Flying mount, the Ebon Griffon, and begun the long grind for PvP gear. So far I have gotten my Merciless Gladiator's Dreadweave Robe and I am working on the gloves. I had some other decent items on, and decided I want matching gloves since mine are a gross looking green, and it just doesn't go with my outfit.

I looked to see about getting reputation in certian places, and I have decided that making people do a RAID group to get rep is completely ridiculous! There should be another way for those of us that don't have 25 friends on at the same time all the time. Granted there are guilds out there that frequently run Kara and ZA, but I still think there should be a slower more painful outlet for those of us that want to get there the hard way.

Some of the materials I need for tailoring at my level are also impossible to get without a raid run, which is another thing that is pissing me off. It is hard enough to get most of this stuff without relying on the few groups of people that will actually go to those Raids and then sell those items at a reasonable price. Matter of fact, there is one item for Shadow Tailoring that is next to impossible to even buy unless you get lucky and find it on the server at the right time.

Does someone want to explain to me what the hell they do on the scheduled maint days which is Tuesday??? I mean, that is like my day off and stuff and sure enough, today is one of those long downtime days where I can't even play until after noon... It sucks to be sure. I was very close to getting my next PvP gear item, and now I will have to wait until tonight. On my day off, which I am already awake and ready to go. Which makes me mad. Which makes baby Jesus cry. I am rambling...

Anyway, So far so good. Wrath of the Lich King comes out soon, and I haven't seen test centers version of this yet, and I am not sure how good it will be, but I am sure the PvPers will soon be all loaded up with them...

Speaking of PvP.. What a whiney bunch of idiots we have there. I mean you get these few guys in there that may or may not actually know what they are doing, constantly spamming the channel with insults and then marking people as AFK for not going to the place they specified. Now, I have a huge problem with people entering the arena and going AFK. I don't even know why that is allowed, but since you get points for your partners kills and you get at least one mark for being there, I can see why some folks just choose to enter and sit there. It does make it easier, and of course you don't use any resources while you are there.

I go through a ton of soul shards while I am in PvP, and sometimes I remember to get one or two while we are playing in AV. However, the arena is not a place for pulling and killing mobs, and since most of the arenas were build prior to level 70, most of them can't be used as soul shard outlets.

So, I have to quit playing PvP every so often to fly out to the forest and try to get those elusive Netherweb Spider Silks I need so badly. What a joke that is to farm those things. Farming for anything is pretty much stupid. I remember wool cloth, and the field day I had with that one. Any other cloth is okay, but not that one...

Oh, and is it me or did Bliz spell "Mana" wrong on their mage table that creates the Manna Biscuit? Seems wierd to me but every where else in the game, Mana is spelled M A N A, except for that mage tables biscuits... Could be me, but I think the proof reader fell asleep on that one.

Anyway, I am off to see the Wizard.. I am gonna have to get a game I can play on Tuesday...

Up the last part of the hill...

Approaching level 68... The road is getting longer, but the mission stays the same.

Now they are giving away a Zebra pet for getting the game, and subscribing for 2 months... Considering that I haven't even gone for my epic mount a second time, this looks good to me.. Would one of you please start playing so I can ride around you in circles while you WALK!? Thank you! Oh, we also get Friend Summoning, so I can make you come play with me whenever I want. Okay, I am just being cute, but I thing having a zebra would definitely be more fun then my Level 40 (oooh, now 30) mount.

Oh, I agree with Lum and everyone else.. The reputation system is the big SUCK. The confusing part is that there are so many people you have to grease to get anything, you could spend your entire life trying to get anywhere and be bored out of your skull to get it. Yes, Outland does pretty much make the old lands meaningless at higher levels above 60. I made so much gold over there, I would never go back unless I had to get something like my damn 60 epic mount.

Believe it or not, I am thinking about making a guild. Why? Cause I can, and I am sorta sick of my guild because no one is ever online. When they are, they don't want to go do anything. Now, I am still kinda busy, but I think when it is time for someone to get their just rewards, that should be done, and if they need to do it twice because someone forgot the quest, then they should do that too. hehe

See ya.
