I’m getting tired of summer, need more structure.
As the title says, I’m thinking of moving on to other mmo’s. I’m just tired of WoW, having done mostly everything the game currently has to offer. I think once patch 3.2 comes out I’ll try the new content, but if its no good, I think I’ll be done with WoW for a while.
My Windows install starts giving me BSOD’s at startup, I think it had something to do with me trying to install drivers for my ps3 controller >.<
Also, I hope to update my old list of top 5 manga of all time, and maybe add a bit, such as anime (with one caveat, no anime based on manga is to be on this list)
I can’t decide whether or not to continue this blog, I barely ever update, and when I do it seems that the topic has switched to something else. I think I’ll finally get to updating at least once a week, with anything that I find interesting, I suppose.
Today I think that topic is BSD. I recently grew tired of windows yet again, and wanted an OS that I’ve never used before, and since I’ve tasted a few flavors of linux, I figure its time to try something new. BSD shouldn’t be too different from linux, as they both came from unix. I’ve already installed pc-BSD on my laptop, which I use as a test bed for anything that could potentially brick my desktop. Don’t think me wasteful, this laptop is 6+ years old, so I’m not wasting a perfectly good laptop. Most of its ports no longer work, wired or wireless ethernet, nor usb or firewire. Luckily, the optical and hard drives both work. I installed it flawlessly, with BSD auto detecting all of my hardware except for PCMCIA wireless card, which I did have working under windows, and at one point with ubuntu GNU/linux. I booted up, and was greeted by a customized KDE desktop. I was glad to find it very user-friendly, an almost Mac-like experience. I think that with an easy to use UI like that, a day to day computer user could transition from windows to an alternative. Next post should be from my desktop on BSD, wish me luck!
This morning, I attempted to log into wow and check my mail and auctions. I was surprised to see that I couldn’t log in, and that I also couldn’t access my email account either. Apparently someone had installed a keylogger on my computer, and stole my account password. This taught me a bit about security, as I was using the same easy password on almost all of my accounts. This person claimed my Gmail, WoW, Steam, and tried to claim my Paypal accounts. I did manage to get it all back, except for my steam account that I’ve easily put $200 into. I guess that’s what I get for using an easy password, and not doing regular virus scans >.<
Before I truly get started blogging about the wow economy, I have I mention a few other wow economic blogs before I start, greedygoblin.blogspot.com and justmytwocopper.blogspot.com. These two blogs are what got me started in the world of wow economics. They showed me that it was possible to make insane amounts of gold just by utilizing the AH and your tradeskills. Gevlon, the writer of the first blog, posts mainly about his business vetures, and his personal philosophies regarding economics. Marcko, the writer of the second blog, focuses more on tips to helping the budding auctioneer make a few gold. I suggest subscribing to both, both blogs have quite a bit to teach about the way the wow economy works.
Alright, so it’s been quite a while since my last post, I’ve been busy for the past year with school, friends, work, etc. I plan to add a new type of post: WoW Economy Updates. This sort of post will be about my capitalist adventures in Azeroth, and hopefully you can learn from my mistakes on what to do in WoW to make a bit of gold.

I’ve been waiting for this to happen, and it finally has. WoW’s season 4 arena gear is out this tuesday. This also means that season 2 gear is now available for honor. So anyone thinking about buying a welfare epic soon, it would be best for you to wait until tuesday.
Apparently, the new season 4 armors looks are a bit lackluster, but that’s not really the point of the armor anyway. The stats are where it all is. I heard that all sets of the same type will look the same, I.E. all clothies will look the same, rogues and druids will look the same, shamans and hunters will look the same, and paladins and warriors will all look the same.
I don’t think that this was the greatest idea on Blizzard’s part, but I think they are probably focusing more effort towards the new expansion, WotLK.

So this weekend is the WSG weekend holiday, and I thought I would come up with a strategy for lvl 70 premades. This should work with PUGs too, you just have to get them to listen and cooperate.
So here it goes:
2 Holy/Disc Priests
4 Rogues of any spec
3 Additional players, doesn’t matter much what they are, preferably more DPS though
2. OK, so now you have your team together, and you need a strategy before you go ahead and queue. That’s where I come in.
The rogue at the front of the Alliance base is a look-out. He is stealthed, looking for horde to come for the Alliance flag. Once he sees the Horde, he reports it to the defense inside the Alliance base, and runs in to help defend.
The priest, the two rogues, and your other player should now be ready to defend the flag.
Here’s the offense’s strategy:
The Warrior/Pally, the Priest, and the two additional DPS should now follow the black arrow on the left to go into the Horde base. DO NOT USE THE RAMP! Instead, go up past the waterwheel, and drop down off the ledge to grab the flag. The priest should be right behind the Warrior/Pally, giving heals and bubbling when needed. If you have an additional Pally, make sure they cast Blessing of Freedom, as it negates the effects of movement impairing spells for 10 seconds. When you get back to the Alliance base, DO NOT GO THROUGH THE RAMP. Use the hill on the right instead, much quicker, and Horde tend to generally use the ramp instead.
This strategy ONLY works when your team works together, and not separately. Feel free to comment/message me with questions about the strategy.
