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.

Blizzard got me to spend $20

While I have many (bank) guilds, I have actually only made one; and either inherited or bought the rest.  This means that there is an assortment of names that I would not have personally chosen.

I generally form multi guild raids; many regulars but no particular requirement to be in guild.  That said, I wanted a guild name to reflect my raiding experience; 5/7 once per week; mostly with extended raids.  Once I am competant enough to down a boss; time to head off to the next one.

So $20 later; I have a renamed guild 'Friday night wipes'.  Descriptive. 


  1. I plan to rename a high level guild I bought a while back but it's going to cost me a little more. I'll have to buy an authenticator first since one is required to use new paid guild services.

  2. Moxnix, you could hand the guild to a trusted person with authenticator, then give them cash to rename it for you, handing it back.

    However, I recommend an authenticator anyway.
