It’s finally over, well at least the hard part is. Tonight Nevik finally hit exalted with Silvermoon. A lot of grinding, and lot of purchasing runecloth, but it is over. In all I think I dumped about 400g in runecloth. If the starting blood elf quests were not nerfed for high levels I still would have had to fall back onto runecloth. Fortunately some of my guild mates helped out by donating their extra stacks.

It’s fun running around atop my chocobo yelling “Need GYSHAL GREENS!” wherever I go.

Their kindness helped me achieve my goal quicker and cheaper, even though gold is a lot easier to come by. Which should mean I’ll have riding 150 in no time now that I can actually save for it. Providing that I don’t become too tempted with picking up an off-hand upgrade. ^^; Eventually I think I’ll get Schmelz a chocobo, but only after the trivial rep gain is removed from those early BE quests.


Here we are at the dawning of a new year which means that there’s only 15 days until the Burning Crusade destroys work productivity, relationships, and a sense of the outside world. I mean, who needs to deal with high gas prices, traffic, and political bullshit when you can be pwn’ng mobs in the World of Warcraft?!

Okay, so I’m being a tad sarcastic, but in all honesty I’m really looking forward to this expansion. The renewed focus on smaller “efficient” groupings to progress as opposed to resource hogging 40 man encounters should make the new end-game far more enjoyable. Along with the expansion comes a new project that my rogue Nevik has already started; exalted with Silvermoon. Why? Because riding a chocobo is cool!

It’s been a long time coming, but finally Nevik has a wolf.

It’s almost ironic that as soon as I hit exalted with Orgrimmar, I decide I want a different mount to ride upon ^^; But at least the expansion will also mean a cheaper training cost for riding 150. The final grind for my wolf mainly had me loot-whoring in AV since the increased Org rep from 5 blood. Spillover rep for Silvermoon already has me sitting at friendly with Silvermoon, now I just need to hunt down all of the BE quest givers that 2.0.1 added.
