My gear at 80

24 December 2008

OK this is a snapshot of my gear as I reached 80.  Its all very well to post about the gear to get from instances or tailoring, but what did I actually get and how close to being heroic ready am I at 80?

Making money

22 December 2008

I’ve resumed my interest in the Auction House (AH) recently after reading Wow Economist.  Ok, let me start at the start.  I recently hit level 80 and I still didn’t even have a basic flyer.  Yes I admit it, i’m so far out of fashion it’s almost laughable.  So I need to make some cash.  I want to actually get my epic flyer soon so I actually need some serious cash.  Over about a week I raised about 2k gold and here are some tips on how I did it.

Firstly I parked one of my alts at the AH.  I had a  good look around at prices, especially of Wrath gear.  This was just to familiarise myself with prices and I use this alt for all trading.  This is much easier than dragging Turkelife away from Northrend regularly.

First impressions of my build at 80

20 December 2008

Ding 80!  OK now that is out of the way this is going to be a quick post re:my current build.  In short, it is performing pretty much as expected.

Penance is pretty useless as a damage spell, but awesome as a heal.  A bit of a shame about the damage and I hope they buff it in the future.  Healing-wise it is a very nice heal and the 8s (talented) cool down isn’t really an issue.  I’m pretty much spamming it on cool down and loving it.  Especially on the tank.  One trap for young players is that Penance is one of the few (only?) healing spells which require a priest to be facing their  target.  This has slowed me down a second here or there as I remember to turn to heal non-tanks.

AFK and Merry Christmas!

16 December 2008

Yes I know i’m a bit early.  🙂 By the time you read this i’ll be on holidays.  This means travelling, family and various other devious distractions that keep me away from my PC.

So the short story is that I won’t be gaming or blogging much until the New Year.  I will be playing during a few lulls in the silly season madness and I will try and blog a post or two, but no guarantees.

I feel a bit guilty about this as my readership has multiplied significantly during the last month and a silent blog is a dying blog, but such is life.  Hopefully you’ll mostly return in the new year for more joy (mine at least).

So Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

Gobble gobble.
