Yes, I'm still playing.

No, I have not abandoned WoW (again) but instead have been grinding achievements, raiding, and overall just enjoying the game when I can. School is kickin my ass and the fact I have to write essays for every class (including math oddly enough) I just don't feel like writing more by the end of the day.

I've started to liquidate my assets a little. I still have your typical glyphs / gems in backstock along with inks but that's about it. With the beta slowly getting in full swing it's starting to slow down a little.

I've opted in for the beta and once (if) I get accepted; you guys should hear more from me about whats going on in beta. :)

Tella reaches 1 million gold!

So I haven't been around too much over the weekend and spending more of my time in game just having fun and grinding rep / leveling alts / what not so I'm a little behind on this but on Friday Tella announced she finally reached 1 million gold!

A very huge grats to her on her achievement. I remember when she was a wheeeeee little banker starting out lol so it's always great to watch someone progress to that level.

Again, A huge grats Tella! You can read the blog post here:

My new "project" - Gold capping my Brother

So my brother came to me today asking about how to make money. He knows I have a decent stash of gold but never really bothered to ask how I do it until today. It came to a shock for him that I have zero gathering professions and rarely leave the city to make money.

So I have a new "project". I want to teach my brother how to play the AH and teach him to dominate the AH. Now this is going to be a slight challenge because he is on a full population server and I have never played on the server, let alone looked at the AH.

Currently he's starting out with mining and herbalism; just running around being your typical farmer. Let's face it, most of us were a farmer at one point and it's the easiest way to acquire initial capital. He's starting off with 300g to his name and zero assets. He has 1 80 and 2 chars in the low to mid 70s and eventually will work up a JC and scribe.

I probably won't talk too much about him but I figured I'd keep you all updated periodically on his progress. Let's see if my low pop backwater server knowledge can be applied to a full server that's one of the original release servers (5+? years).
