It has been a blast!

You probably wondered why I haven’t posted about World of Warcraft in a while. The simple truth is that my motivation has been steadily declining with the lack of updates and content. Just do the math, from November ’11 to Sept’12 that is 10 months and fees without new content …

Crazy Sales

I know people are always doubting if my business model in wow really works. What I am doing it to keep stuff at a high price at the auction house and never undercut anyone. In fact my prices are often 5-8 times higher than normal and people often write me nice mails that I am crazy … but what can I say … it works!

Enhancement Shaman solos Void Reaver

My fans (rawr yeah!) on YouTube got the request to fraps more soloing and I thought this would be an interesting Boss to show. The issue with Void Reaver, the 3rd Boss in Tempest Keep The Eye, is that he fires big balls of electrity that do a large radius AoE silence. While being in a 25 man raid it won’t matter that much, however soloing you will be targeted each and every time ending up more or less chain silenced.

Patch 4.1 introduces massive drop in Gold from certain Bosses

Blizzard announced a few days ago that they wanted to decrease the amount of gold that certain raid bosses would drop. This made me head to PTR and check out how bad the situation has become. Unfortunately Doomwalker/Kazzak weren’t up, but I was able to kill Magtheridon. Since he drops the same amount of Gold as Kazzak/Doomwalker on live realms you can conclude that their gold is in the same range.

Total Gold Acquired: February 2011, 2 000 000 Gold

Lots of Gold!

Lately I have been repeatedly asked if I already breached the 2 million total gold acquired mark. As you may know I specialize in overpricing stuff and prefer to sell 1 auction for 100 gold, than 2 for 50 gold. It is not the quick sale I am aiming at, but the lazy, unprepared customer who doesn’t care a lot what he pays for and wants item xy right NOW.
The launch of Cataclysm has given my price model a huge boost, even expensive materials do not seem expensive compared to some of the normal prices we see these days, at least on Ravencrest.

Enhancement Shaman solos Sartharion 10 man

Sartharion seems like a doable fight, so I went to the Obsidian Sanctum and tried my luck. The thrash was not easy to clear, but I was able to clear it all inclusive Tenebron and Vesperon. Sadly the third Miniboss Shadron forces you to go into the Twilight Realm and if you try that solo he will despawn instantly. I had to bring a friend, Zlínka, to kill the guardian inside the Twilight Realm.
With his lieutenants defeated it was time to head for Sartharion. Wildly swinging axes, trusty wolves at my side and with heroism I rushed towards the Onyx Guardian.

Enhancement Shaman vs Teron Gorefiend

On of the best models and fun raid encounters in World of warcraft was Teron Gorefiend in Black Temple. The fight mechanics with killing of players and turning them into ghosts still is a pretty unique gimmick. Many guilds used this fight to compete on DPS during the burning crusade when wwscoreboard was still live.
I have always enjoyed this fight, but wasn’t sure if I could do it, due to the gimmick mechanics … and there was the fear about the thrash guarding Teron 😀 But you never know how things turn out if you don’t at least try!

Enhancement Shaman vs Archavon the Stonewatcher

I happened to do dailies at the Argent Tournament, when Wintergrasp Battle was about to start. I figured, I could just join up for the free honor and looked into Vault of Archavon to pass the time. Previously I wondered how hard the trash would be here now or if I could even take down a Boss. The Trash looked surprisingly doable and I thought, even with the upcoming battle, it would not hurt to at least see how hard the encounter would be like. Before thinking about it, I rushed in.
