Very little...

Again, I've mostly done auctions and dailies over the last few days. I guess the summer is getting to me like it does with most players. Today, however, I did a few ToC5 runs with Auriaya and got the tanking trinket so she is pretty well geared now. I don't think getting accepted to weeklies will be a problem in the future.

Also, i got about 2500 reputation with the Cartel for my Insane in the Membrane feat on Larthas. There's still a long way to go, but I guess I could call this progress.

Slow and uneventful...

I really played very little for the past few days. I did the daily JC quest, logged in to do some auctioneering, but that's pretty much it. I tried to get the trinket from ToC5 Normal for Lasthar today, but even after 10 or so runs, no luck with it.

Lich King getting near!

Last night we organized two 10man groups first, both doing ICC10 HC. Around 21:30, we finally had enough people to continue on the Lich King in 25man. I am proud to say, we are getting really close to kill him. We managed to get to phase 3, but for some reason we are having trouble killing the Raging Spirits in phase 2.5, so 3 of them are on the off tank in the transition, killing him really fast. Still, there was obvious progression going on, so hopefully he will fall tonight. I just hope there isn't any thunderstorms tonight.

In other news, I've spent some times on my alts, leveling my Salthra up to 38 and gathering emblems on Hastral, Lashtar and Auriaya. Epic gems are still the main source of my income and i managed to get two farmers to sell me theirs directly. Larthas' enchanting is a close second, while Hastral's transmute just got upped to third place. I started selling uncut meta gems and titanium and titansteel bars, so i make about 200-300 a day from that.

Not much done today. I did some dailies, did some auctioneering and even leveled my rogue a bit. All in all, just a routine day. Also, my brother in law was here so I looked over his characters a bit. He doesn't have Wrath of the Lich King yet, but he will probably get it soon, because his hunter reached level 70 today. There is another thunderstorm tonight, so no raiding, sadly.

Ruby Sanctum

We ended up wiping for four hours on Ruby Sanctum 10HC yesterday. Still, we did make progress and i really think Halion could be down tonight. The only problem is, a freaking thunderstorm! With my luck the guild will do this without me. Don't get me wrong, I like it when my guild downs bosses for the first time. Still, I would like to be there for just one time...

In other news, Larthas did some Dire Maul runs to get his goblin reputation back up. I am now 10/36k hated. Also, I managed to restock on gems on Auriaya so I will be back to selling now. The rest of my characters I didn't even manage to visit. Sadly, this means I missed a day of transmutes and dailies.

Skip a day...

Sorry for not posting yesterday, but I went to bed early so it slipped my mind. The good news is, stuff actually happened, so i have something to write about. Larthas went on a raid with the guild and we managed to reach the Lich King on the first night. I wanted to come tonight as well, but i had to take care of my nieces so that didn't happen. Hopefully, the Lich King will go down on 25 soon. I also got a new Tier10 token so now I'm just missing one piece, not counting the gloves which I probably won't get. Also, I managed to blow 16k today buy buying the Traveler's Thundra Mammoth. I really want to start on my Insane in the Membrane feat, so this mount will be very useful.

As for my other characters, i did the weekly on all of them and that's about it. Auriaya is still doing her JC dailies and selling gems, while Lasthar and Hastral pretty much do the daily transmute and that's it.

Only a little bit.

Again I haven't played much. I managed to do two randoms on Salthra and gained a level, and I also did a few heroics on Lasthar so I can buy a proper totem. This got him the Superior achievement so he is slowly on his way to greatness, I guess. As for everything else, I again bought a bunch of cheap enchanting mats so I'm really stocking up on scrolls nicely. It should start paying off soon.

Some progress!

I managed to clear Ruby Sanctum 10 on Larthas. It took a few wipes due to a few silly mistakes; one of them on my part, but in the end, we managed to kill Halion. Nothing dropped for me, but I got a bunch of Frost Emblems and an achievement so it was definitely worth it.

Also, my money supply dropped suddenly. Someone flooded the market with cheap enchanting mats so I had to buy it all out. The plus is, I probably wont be needing fresh ones for a week or so. I managed to make 3-4 of each scroll with the mats I bought. I also decided to try my luck on some of the old world twin enchants. The profit mating is huge, but I'm not sure how well they sell.

None of it...

Sorry guys, no game play today. Just the JC dailies and some auctioneering. I almost got to100k today, but went right back down because i needed to restock on raw gems. Larthas is having some difficulties getting his enchanting mats so i might have to raise my threshold prices. I will probably play some tomorrow. There is a raid tomorrow night, but I'm not sure if enough people will show up. Summer is really killing our progression.

I really have no idea what to write about. Today was just routine. I did a few dailies, checked my auctions, reposted stuff that was missing and expanded my blacksmithing business on Larthas a bit. I'm trying to sell the low 70s saronite gear as well as the three lvl200 epic helms. For now, it looks pretty promising.

In other news, the community is buzzing with rage about the new RealID changes. Personally, I'm fine with it, but i can understand why other people wouldn't be. As for the announced talent changes, i think it has major potential and hopefully Blizzard will do their magic on it and make it great.

Long time, no siege!

Well, I guess I'm really, really bad at keeping promises. It has been about two months since i last posted. If you follow my general gaming blog, you will know why. The good news is, for the next two months, I will have all the time in the world to play and write as much as i want. The bad news is.... wait, there is no bad news! So lets do a quick recap of what happened during the last two months so i can go back to playing.

Larthas did almost nothing. I did not have any time for raiding, so that is out of the picture. I did, however, manage to join a nice arena team, but even there, i missed 2 out of 4 weeks of game time. Hopefully all of this will change now.

As for Auriaya, she keeps doing her JC dailies and increasing the variety of her merchandise. Things are going really well, as I'm actually having trouble keeping up with the demand for cut gems. I can easily sell 30-40 gems on a regular day.

Sahtral and Salthra both didn't do much, but they did get a few levels due to rested xp. Every time they reach 100% rested, i do a few dungeons with each of them to use that up.

Hastral did absolutely nothing. He just does his daily transmute and that's about it.

The biggest news, however is Lasthar. He got from 40 to 80 and is having loads of fun. I made him a healer so I'm now healing heroics to get a bunch of emblems. I also maxed Alchemy and Iscription as his professions and made him an Elixir Master. Once i get a feel of the market, i will try to make some money in those areas. For now, things are looking really good for him. I will gear him up to about T9, and then make him a professional scribe. I hear glyphs are a great source of money.
