You’ve got mail

Does anyone actually use WoW mail as a way to exchange letters? I mean written notes of any importance? I’ve received gold, goods and notes from the Auction House.. but I don’t think I’ve actually received a honest to goodness, actually-full-of-content letter. Wait, no, the only letter I’ve rec’d has been from NPCs as parts of quests. I sent a…

Life as a bear

Speed skilling is for the birds. Or at least it is when you’re speed skilling a lowbie. Obliette started the night at level 10 with alchemy up to 130. A quick visit to the trainer showed that she can’t train to the next level of Alchemy until she hits level 20. Ugh. First things first she completed her druid bear-form…

Addon: TBag

Yesterday WoWInsider.com reviewed the TBag, an addon to manage your inventory. Turns out it’s over-the-top cool. Check out their reveiw, they said it way more eloquently than I will. Highlights: – Auto-sort your inventory, group like-things together – Anywhere view of your bank – Anywhere view of your alt’s bags – Anywhere view of your alt’s bank Last time I…

Bloodthistle.. and your point is?

I’m not sure if [item]Bloodthistle[/item] is a benefit or a detriment. Illyah is my fourth herbalist. I like the profession. At least at the low levels, herbalism/alchemy seem to be the most universally helpful profession pairing. On my other characters, the lowbie areas where you start herbalism have Peacebloom, Silverleaf, Earthroot and the occational Mageroyal. The blood elf zone is…

“I’m too sexy.. for my guild tabard”

Bawk Bawk, my Blood Elf Guild, had a little bit of a bumpy second guild night. I’m untutored in the ways of guild nights.. and although I mapped out the start/end and mobs for each of our quests, I neglected to form a list of which quests should be tackled in which order. This lead to a bit of hand-waving…

“Faugh! Clothies!”

Monneh skilled tailoring from 17 to 125 last night. Did it in Exodar by running between AH and Tailor trainer. I would have gone further but 1) I ran out of money and 2) I can’t skill past 150 until I reach level 20 and visit a trainer in Stormwind. At the moment I have -no- idea how to get…

Darkness and moonlight

I’m tired of playing WoW in the dark. It occured to me the other day that I have very little clue what the world looks like when the sun is up. This made me sad. I know that the WoW clock is tied to the RL clock.. but just because it’s dark outside doesn’t mean that I want to always…

Spirit Bear

Yesterday was devoted to leveling Obliette up to at least 10 (so I could train in Alchemy). It went fairly quickly and then when I hit 10 I ran back to the Druid Trainer at Dolanaar. He told me that he couldn’t train me and that instead I should seek out Mathrengyl Bearwalker in Darnassus. So I ran off to…

Half way there…

Project: Skill-revamp-musical chairs is moving ahead slowly. I re-did Tikah as a Skinner/Herbalist and sent her all around Teldrassil gathering herb for Obli and skilling up her skinning. That went fairly well but I was annoyed at killing stuff and not getting any experience (and my new pet needs to get experience points to get some training points) so I…
