Re: Does anyone play WoW?

meh, you can play casually. i lvl'ed up about once every 2 weeks & had the game for a few years til the expansion came out (ended up in early lvl 50s). i had a couple friends who played (a bit hardcore), but i purposely never joined a guild which minimized building any social bonds in the game, so that probably helped. definitely go skinning/mining or skinning/herbing unless you want to be broke. you'll need 100g at lvl40 to get your mount. i sold my skins to the store & undersold my rocks i mined on the AH, and had about 150g at lvl 40. i also had friends w/ lots of gold, so that helped too.

edit: and make sure to log off at a inn, so you get the double experience (this is crucial for casual players)

This was a huge failure when I tried to kick the habit at first. Hopefully I do better at it this time.

Re: Does anyone play WoW?

The closer I get to 70, the more I'm starting to play. I just hit lvl 64 yesterday, played for about 6ish hours, gained over 400k experience points, and am getting so close to my epic ground mount.

I tried getting a group together for Blood Furnace in Hellfire. We killed the 1st boss, one person left, our leader went AFK, and then we didn't know what to do. We all left the group, regrouped, 2 other people left, tried getting more people, they got mad, then everything went to hell and we ended up giving up and I never finished it!!!

Then I went to Terrokar Forest and I wasn't even there for 5 minutes and I got killed twice by different lvl 70 hordes. I just /sit and let them kill me.

I can't wait to hit 70, get my gladiator gear, and start killing every horde I see.

I just read this at worldofwarcraft.com for the new hero class with the new expansion:

Apparently, you use controls like guitar hero and your character rocks out on a guitar to kill the enemies.

Funny thing is someone went from 1-70 in around 24 hours of game time.

I never really understood it, but some people were saying that WoW begins when you hit 70. I'm starting to get that feeling.

Re: Does anyone play WoW?

So i've been mostly solo leveling a Druid(lvl 35) for a month now. I've been making good progress even with casual play. Several of you mention having two gathering professions for your main. When I started out I learned herbalism and alchemy. Rigth now I am at about 132 for my herbalism rating and around 67 for alchemy. Is it possible to make a decent amount of money with the combination of herbalism and alchemy? Or would you guys recommend dropping alchemy and picking up another gathering profession?

Like most of the crafting professions, most of the stuff you make from alchemy you will not be able to sell for a profit unless you have a really good source of herbs for high demand items. Unless you are in a big guild and your services are needed frequently for raid items, I would just drop alchemy and pick up another gathering prof.

Re: Does anyone play WoW?

I havent played WOW at all in about six months, but here's the main thing I did as an Miner to get the money for my epic flying mount, which I had about two weeks after turning 70 and starting with about 150g.

Engineers need hardened adamantite to level, like at least one bar per level.
1 Bar of Hardened Adamantite = 10 Bars of Normal Adamantite.

After prospecting came out in BC, the price of ores on the AH went way up, but for some reason people still insist on selling bars, and they are usually relatively cheap, EXCEPT for the hardened adamantite which has relatively few uses but is still very important for engineers. On my server (Shadowsong) a stack of adamantite bars generally sold on the AH for 30-35g, and one hardened adamantite bar sold for 25-35g. , which means a potential profit of 40g just for buying one stack of normal and making it into two hardened bars, which takes all of about 30s of travel to the nearest forge and back.

There were a few other people trying to compete with me at this, but within a few days of doing it (and fishing) I had about 2500g, so I could buy out all their cheaper auctions and basically control the sale of hardened adamantite 100% and set market prices.

Another easy way, once you get auctioneer, is to keep an eye on motes and primals. There are lots of disparities between the prices of a particular mote and its corresponding primal, especially fire and earth, so if you notice the motes are going too cheap, buy'em, combine 'em into primals, sell for a decent profit. If its the other way around, miners can break down fire and earth primals. IIRC, the main primal I made money on this way was primal life, because tons of new 64ish players coming through the mushroom area would just dump a bunch of motes of life on the AH at really cheap prices to empty their bags.

Fishing IMO is the biggest money maker in the game. If you spend the time to get your fishing skill to max and know where to fish, you can make ****loads of gold but its pretty boring. I went over exactly where to do all of this stuff in a post in an earlier thread, so if anyone really wants to know, hit the search function.

Re: Does anyone play WoW?

I've got 2 epic flying mounts (6000g each) and around 7k more gold in the bank mostly from just buying ore and prospecting and selling cut gems. I generally spend around 15 minutes a night buying ore, prospecting, and selling gems.
