What Have You Done With It?
I've had a very enjoyable holiday season, spending time with family and friends and getting a lot of personal projects done that have been waiting my attention for months.
The weather has been NASTY COLD for the past while, but when my brother and I travelled home to visit the folks for Christmas with family, the weather was quite a bit warmer (well, there's still snow on the ground but what can you hope for this far north?). I'm glad for warmer weather when I travel, because it gets really quite bitterly cold here.
Dad and I Leveling Lowbies(Wow power leveling
Cheap wow gold)
Dad and I have agreed upon a day to play together in the last couple of months, too, and except for that Monday when a patch was released a little while ago, we have been playing together for a few hours every Monday night.
Our little lowbies are now level 50s! We started this playing together thing around level 25 on these toons, and since playing with Dad is the only time I level this guy and we've been leveling pretty evenly (although I have BoA bonus exp), I'm assuming that he's only leveling with this character on Monday nights with me too.
It's been a lot of fun to play with Dad since he got started a year ago, but I sure do hope that the High Speed Internet radio tower that's been erected with the hope of it starting up this month (January) works properly where my folks are! Dad is an infinitely patient man to deal with the number of disconnects and "stranded in the city" issues he faces on his 56k modem.
ZOMG, if their high speed works properly, Dad and I might be able to have a CONVERSATION on vent while we play, without it all coming out choppy, and laggin the heck out of his game!
Gathering The Riches
Another thing I've done during the holidays is keep up with my Auction House rituals pretty well. I cleaned out my bags and have kept up with Gem and Cloth transmutes, and while I'm taking a relaxing break from lots of playing, many other players were playing their hearts out on their holiday time.
And of course, that means that many players are buying and selling in the Auction House. It's the cycle of life in World of Warcraft, the cycle that continues despite the fact that we, ourselves, aren't participating much in the cycle.(Wow power leveling Cheap wow gold)
I figure, if there's one part of the Cycle I should keep my fingers in during the holidays or during raiding down-time, it's the Auction House cycle.
And it's certainly been paying off well! This screenshot was taken on December 29, and I was at 25k worth of savings at that time - this morning I put it back up over 30k after taking 1000 out for investing yesterday.
My Personal Bank Money Log
Gold Cap? Or Mechano Hogs For All?
One thing I love in online games is the whole "economy" thing.
After all, after all of your professions are maxed out and you've got gems and enchants on all your toons 40+, and epic flying on everyone over 70, what else is there to do?
As of this writing, I've got one toon with a Traveller's Tundra Mammoth mount, and a different toon has a Mechano Hog mount. All five of my playing toons at 70 and above have Epic Flying. The lowbies, of course, have the now-incredibly-cheap lowbie mounts, but that doesn't even cost much anymore.
With the 30k in the bank I have, I could possibly squeeze out two more Mechano Hogs (or certainly within a week I'd be able to pay for all the mats), but I'm not sure if I'll actually do that.(Wow power leveling Cheap wow gold)
It might be more fun to go for the Gold Cap and watch the money pile up.
If you were in my position, what would be your vote? Traveller Tundra Mounts for all raiders, and Mechano Hogs for all non-raider toons? Or Gold Cap?
