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.

An update and some shoutouts

As you may have guessed, I am not as active in WoW as I have been; I still have my annual pass to see out and will probably become more active in Mists of Pandaria.  Apart from a busy first life; there is another distraction; highlighted somewhere on the right hand side menus of this blog.

As those who have regularly raided with me; I happy when I am failing a lot.  However, my primary goals for this expansion have been met; I have defeated every boss in this expansion on normal; and the Dragon Soul on two different toons at two different levels of difficulty (LFR/Normal), and a heroic boss on the side.

I am not sure I am up to herding 9/24 cats through heroic mode. In first life I have been crazy cat man - with as many as 6 cats at one point.  From experience, herding 6 cats is easier than 10 players.

First shou-tout: If you don't have 8/8 DS normal or want more normal gear, and have at least 10K gold you are willing to bid on gear; send an in game mail to Jetfoo (one of the only Foo's on the server isn't me) asking for a spot on Friday nights. Every week they pug clear 8/8 25 man normal with the possibility of a Heroic boss or two (it's where I got mine).

That said, if you are interested in Heroic Dragon Soul, Friday and/or Saturday nights Australian Eastern time on Caelestrasz Alliance; let me know; either in game mail to Foofixit, or comment on this blog.  Toon prerequisite for a raid that I lead is 8/8 DS normal on the toon you want to bring (guild membership not required but available).  I like to fail better.  I am interested in running 'wipe-a-lot' raiding; smash heads on a heroic boss then move on to the next boss; possibly extending the odd raid.  If you need DS normal gear see the shout-out above.  If wiping bothers you, the raid I envisage is not the one you want. 
Alternatively if you are running Heroic DS and need a (all but) normal BIS holy priest healer or (slightly less geared) DK tank Foolich on Caelestrasz Alliance on Friday or Saturday nights, also let me know.  While I have DPS specs and reasonable DPS gear - mid 390's on both toons; I haven't seriously played DPS since Wrath heroics. 

Finally for those interested in glyphs, another shout-out.  This time to Faid for the glyph primer post.  Long time readers of this blog probably know the blogs he she points out, but go read it anyway.
