As someone who did, indeed, play Vanilla WoW—who used to raid in Vanilla WoW, even—I am certified to tell you that, for however much you legitimately enjoyed the game, your nostalgia is bad and trying to go back is worse.
There were basically two ways to make money in the [World of Warcraft] Auction House: be a supplier or be a commodities guy.
A supplier would be the person that used professions (leatherworking, blacksmithing, gathering, fishing, etc) to gather or create valuable items and would then sell them on the AH. Most people start here, and few ever do more than this. Much like workers in real life, these people create all of the economy’s value.
Commodity traders exploited that value to inflate margins and make profit.
Capitalism and the finance industry explained… WoW-style.
Cleaning up my room, finding old sketchbooks from circa 2010.
I used to be kinda okay at drawing, as it turns out.
I really like this area just in front of the PvP vendors in Stormshield. All the hustle and bustle of war is going on behind me, but here I’m just chillin’, waiting for my next BG to pop.
I haven’t played Resto Shaman for aa-aa-aa-ages. It was my main in Vanilla1 but it now plays ve-ee-ee-ee-ery differently. I think I quite like it.
My current mission is to test all the healing classes and see which ones I like the most for random BGs. Thus far, Priest (Discipline) is winning, followed by Shaman. Druid I love for levelling–my current main is a Druid–and they have strong healing AoE, but I still don’t like the way they work in BGs. I’m not sure whether this is just me being a bad, but I seemed to get rolled more and do less helpful things that even my boost-geared Shaman. so… yeah.
Next up is Paladin, then Monk. And yeah, mostly I’m farming gear skins for the new transmog system. What can I say; I like pretty clothes. So sue me.
- Yes, I levelled Resto. There were no dual specs back in those days, and the respeccing had scaling costs I couldn’t afford. [↩]
