So, not only have I started a Priest once again....I actually ran a Heroic on Darraxus. Not just any heroic...one of the new Zandalar heroics.
Granted I ran it as DPS, but it was a mostly guild run with our Heroic tank extrodinaire Drunkencrono. The guy runs Heroics just because he likes running them. He doesnt really need the gear or anything.
It is always nice to have someone like that in the guild.
Overall, it felt pretty good to get out there and see some new content. I did a respectable 10.5k dps with my crap gear (mostly blue items including a PvP piece or two).
Since the above doesnt really make a post, I had a couple of things to say about low level crafting and gold making. There is certainly gold to be made.
I have been making a nice chunk of change selling the engineering pets. You get the schematics from Gnomeregan. The bombling is a drop off of the last boss in the instance, and Lil Smokey has a chance to drop off the the Arcane Nullifiers (IIRC).
Low level tailoring has also been good to me. I have sold a bunch of the low level blue items for 4-10 times the mat cost. I also make a very decent amount of gold off of selling shirts. Black Swashbuckler shirts seem to sell the best. I have sold a few of pretty much every piece of vanity clothes you can make. I think it especially helps that I am on an RP server.
Do you know when you are getting to your competition? When they say something to you. I mentioned that I have a guildy who competes with me in the gem market. Yesterday, as I was finishing undercutting him yet again, I see in guild chat "I dont even know why you are still in the guild". To which I replied with....NOTHING!!! Let him be angry. I will keep on keeping on. I may not raid with the guild, but it is not a requirement. I do contribute some gems to the guild bank.
Anyways, I am just glad to have gotten back into doing a Heroic....even if it was only as a DPS.
