What I am doing now

You are most likely here because you enjoy crafting. I have been reading up on some of the WoW issues regarding gold making, which make me realize that WoW is not the game for me.

If you want to play a game where gathering and crafting is the cornerstone of the economy, and are not faint of heart, I recommend EVE Online. EVE even has releases purely to support industry. You can play for free if you are good enough manufacturer or trader.

Be the builder in a villainous world.

Glad I did not buy that ring

Over the weekend, I wanted to upgrade my Ilvl 200 tanking ring.

The Kirin Torr had a nice DPS ring, with a lot of stamina, which would have set me back about 11k.  It did not appear as good a tanking ring as the Ilvl 264 one on the AH, but had the ability to teleport back to Dalaran.  In the end I could not decide which one I wanted (and I will only spend 8k/11k if I know that I want it), so just ended up buying the Ilvl213 badge tanking ring.

Now I find that the Cataclysm beta removes portals from Dalaran and Shattrath.  I am much relieved that I did not buy it.


  1. As a warrior Bs/miner I hate to think how much longer it would have taken to Loremaster without that ring The ability to set my hearthstone where I was questing was worth the money

  2. Yes. I am going to buy an any Cata equivalent, but get my use of it during the next expansion. Not much point in spending 7k on something that is not going to get a lot of use.
