First Day Back In Azeroth!

Oh it's been too long...

Well, I'm just wrapping up my first day, or should I say evening in Azeroth. As the name of the blog might suggest, I love playing the gold game in WoW.

I found out that I had two pretty lowbie characters on a realm that I could just take advantage. So in a way I won't be starting with an 85 again, but I won't have to start form scratch.

So at the moment, I have a 30-something paladin and a level 5 mule who has 334 gold 40 silver and 81 copper with just a handful of recipes and random trade goods.

I pretty much spent my first night just getting accustomed to the game and learning the new locations of AHs in Stormwind. I also picked up some vendor items to throw up on the AH.

The next few days are really important because this is the time where I'll just be observing prices and looking for volatility to take advantage of. I'm looking at about 17 items right now. That number will grown in the weeks to come, but for now, I'm quite happy watching these many items.

I also had a pretty nasty glitch with Auctioneer that totally messed up the interface at the AH. One way to overcome that problem is just to download the next beta version, which I think is 5.13.

Anyway, I'll post an update tomorrow and we'll see how much stuff I sell...

Starting All Over Again

Remember those commercials that Blizzard was running around the time when they released the Burning Crusade expansion pack. A lot of them had famous people who talked about how they stopped playing and how they thought they were done with WoW, but how the expansion pack "brought them back in".

Well, the exact same thing is happening with me right now. It's big news when Blizzard tries releasing new expansion packs. Some people, like my brother, are looking at the Mists of Panderia as a cheap excuse for a new expansion pack; a sign, if you will, that Blizzard is getting desperate and, of all the possible themes of an expansion pack, they choose Pandas.

And I can kind of understand where he's coming from. Everything from the new Pandaren race, to Pandaria, and let's not forget the new Monk class, seems very Kung-Fu Panda-like. It was difficult to watch and not be slightly curious as to why all the similarities.

Even with all the concerns and the similarities, I guess the one difference is that I can't actually play Kung-Fu Panda and I can play WoW... Honestly, at the end of the day, I don't really care. Blizzard has once again found a way to pull me back in Azeroth.

It is kind of exciting, should I just continue from where I last left off... It would certainly be much easier and more convenient. (Not to mention all the time it would save.) Or should I start all over again? I'm not really sure. I guess only time will tell.
