Rainy Maintenance

It’s another damp, chilly rainy day around here. The kind that has a tendency to make bones ache and creak a bit, lol. It also happens to be a maintenance day, and combined with some rl stuffs that translates into a very limited game play window later this evening.

I pretty much like maintenance days, they provide opportunities for me to get into some in-depth blog reading, research of whatever’s got my attention and a host of incidentals. I go over “plans” I’ve made for various characters’ activities and generally attempt to get myself (organized?). Major challenge there!

Slightly serious though, with the vast amount of content offered and three level 90’s scurrying about soaking up as much as possible, we do need a better “Plan A”. We’ve got plenty of B’s, C’s and D’s in operation 🙂 Anyway, it’s something we’ve been working on this past week. Time, is a valuable commodity and we need to use it well.

Hence, no more running all three through a slew of dailys, everyday, for the sake of valor points. After all three have cared for their farms and gained their Ironpaw token for the day, one will get the call for a dailys run and they’ll switch off each day. This will leave time for one or both of the others to work on different projects. For example, Thdoria is the least geared of the three. On her off days from dailys, she could be venturing into some dungeons. Scary, but more effective I should think. Ay could really spend some more time farming his much needed ore stocks. Dufit could at least learn how to not get “chomp-chomp-chomped.” After all, he spent 1600g getting that invitation.

And of coarse, we’ve got the whole profession things going on. Blacksmithing, Alchemy, Tailoring and Enchanting are all skill capped. It’s high time to start making some money off of them, for all the efforts and money put into getting them there. And I happen to know a few alts sitting around gathering dust who could use a little helping hand.

Now then, I’m not very gold making knowledgeable, or an AH player. I know enough to use the Undermine Journal, and I do follow a few select gold making blogs. My AH history has been marginally good because of this, and a handful of luck tossed in. I do realize though, that this is a viable part of the game that provides some nice rewards. So along with some encouragement from blog readings, we’re going to venture into some attempts to fill our coin sacks to a “comfortable” level.

Our first inspirational steps came to us by way of reading Nev’s “20 Days of Goldmaking”. Formally considered useless for us, we’ve now installed Auctionator and LilSparky’s Workshop. It’s kind of like wiggleing your fingers in the bath water for a temp check before you climb in. Hopefully, our limited game play time this evening will allow us to get them configured.

I certainly don’t expect to compete with the real gold-makers of Fenris, but I do have my sights set on becoming “comfortably wealthy.”  Lol, I’ll let you know how much that is when I get there!!!
