Time passes and life gains wisdom.

It been awhile since I have updated this blog. Mostly because I have been so busy with work and actually playing. I am on the downhill (almost) crawl to level sixty. I have made my way to level fifty-four since I last wrote up something here. Updating on the events last posted:
Edit: I took to long to finish this post so now I am one bar (rested) away from 56.

I managed to get the full 320 deviate fishes and made a nice chunk of change on them. Took almost 30 minutes to cook all the fishes too. I made about eighty gold on that insanity. It was worth it though. Near the end stacks I got into a price war with a regular fisher if the fishes. I got the price down to two and a half gold per stack of twenty. Heh. I kinda screamed through levels forty-five to fifty mostly hitting as many quests as I could mixed with a few ZF runs. One night we hit ZF seven times in a row so a guildy could get his complete Sul’thras sword set. (Prolly wrong name). Anyway it’s the two piece sword set that can be joined into a single blade of Killing Stuff Badd. He was stoked and the rest of the group were glad to be of help. I still run with the guy. Only problem happened when he accidently joined them before he was level fifty. So he had to wait until then to use the Uber sword. I have really expanded my areas of questing. I’ve been to Un’goro, Azshara, Searing Gorge, Felwood, and Winterspring. I even have been able to dip into the Blasted Lands and Burning Steps. I find I like Felwood the most next to Azshara just for the runecloth drops and the felcloth possibilities. My new favorite home for the next few levels will probably be Searing gorge. Good grinding spots and easy access to BRD, LBRS, UBRS. When I came here I was level fifty-three and only a few bars shy of have a level. After knocking out eight quests in a single night I leveled to fifty-four. Now I’m sitting pretty on two pieces of Shadowcraft. Soon I will be organizing a run into BRD for a few quests there as well as a recipe for the repair bot and the ability to smelt dark iron. I can’t wait for the weekend to come.

I have been tying out the BGs at the high levels and I have found a new home in the Alterac Valley Battle Ground. The few times I played last weekend has allowed me to become a corporal finally. I think if I just play a few AVs I can make sergeant and keep it till the expansion comes out. And the longest battle there so far was only forty-five minutes. I don’t even care about dieing anymore. I a just interested mostly in the reputation gain with stormpike. I wanna get exalted to I can start saving for the Lobotomizer dagger. That is my new obsession since I managed to pick up th3e epic dagger Gut Ripper for my main hand weapon. I likely this dagger, this thing his hard and fast and has a COH that doubles the damage on top of the poisons I use. Makes for some huge crits. I’m getting better at taking down casters. I actually took down a level sixty mage in AV solo. Sure I was below half life but being able to stop their spells is a nice way to get the jump on them. I have been getting some decent honor points it the BG but like I said I’m more into the rep for the long haul. I am really not looking forward to the Timbermaw and Thorium rep grinds. I’ll see if a really need those some day. Kinda thinking I wont. I don’t think they have recipes I need for my rogue. I just need really one more recipe for him to be complete…no wait two: The field repair bot and the Arcanite Dragonling. Yeah those will be all I need with the rogue. I have all skill except fishing maxed or above three hundred now (fishing 282/300 eng 310/315). Fishing just requires time and engineering I can wait on till I can afford it. I really want to be able to have the last engineering point be the one I will get from making the Dragonling. Silly I know but I gots me goals to achieve. I need to start finding enough arcane crystals to make eight arcanite bars. I may just buy them and ask a guildy to make the bars on commission, for the next sixteen to twenty days. I don’t know the cool down on arcanite so it might take longer for them. I will prolly level to fifty-six tonight without much work. There are a few more skills to buy. Whoohoo!

I really need to start some research into a level sixty rogue build. I know I could be doing what I do better. So I will be seeking guidance from the web and fellow guildies I might even try to ask a high level rogue from one of the leet guilds around on my server.
