Back to Making Gold

Since I have no time to level up without dying a billion times, I’ve gotten back into the swing of things with the auction house on both retail and classic. My goal (as always) is to try to earn enough gold for the auction house mount – 5 million. I’ve been spending money all over the place, trying to work two servers in multiple markets, and it just hasn’t been working for me. I actually have an easier time making gold on my low population realm than I do on my high population realm. I’m not sure why that is, except that I don’t know the market very well on the (newer) high pop.

My first goal is to make it back up to a million. If you remember before BFA I had over 3 million gold – but I squandered it on things like buying all the battle pets from the store, transferring characters, buying BFA for a few accounts, and paying for said accounts for months in advance. Now with the token skyrocketing in price, I think I’m better off sitting on the gold for a bit.

Anyway. I’m starting small. Investing a bit of coin into material and consumable flips, along with some peaceful transmog sales. They might be slow, but when you sell one it’s always lovely.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Making a Sweater

One sleeve down, a second to go, along with the collar. I love how this is knitting up so far.

Adding to the Collection

I may not have a lot of time to play, but I still love the sims 4 and of course when I saw I could get a bundle deal I jumped on it.. and then I also bought the new game pack that includes magic, because why not.

I created a new sim on the island map, gave her a Newfoundland dog, and started a military career (which she will probably change). Besides a little decor I haven’t had time to do much else, but it’s a start!

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.



Sometimes it’s hard to see how we’ve progressed over time when it comes to particular hobbies. I know when I started spinning I felt pretty hopeless. I would browse over Instagram and see all the beautiful skeins and wish mine could look like that.

Now that I’ve arranged my pictures together I can certainly see how far I’ve come in the last 4 months, and it’s something I’m very proud of.

On my Wheel

100% corriedale wool that I’ve separated into large chunks of colours to spin. I’m working on the yellow/orange first and then I’ll swap to the red/orange.

A Classic Update

I decided with my lack of time it would be best if I started over as a hunter, so I’ve created a new character along with my husband who is playing a mage. So far we’re level 8 and 12 respectively, but I hope to catch up to the druid before too long.

I WANT to be able to tank and run dungeons, but that’s just not going to happen. This is a much more relaxed and realistic goal, I think.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Making Gold in Classic

I’m still making gold slowly while the market establishes itself and people level up which is to say that I’m doing a linen bag flip. I buy all linen over 20c, and make bags and sell them to vendor for 50c profit each bag (or more, if I get linen for under 20c). It’s slow, but it’s what I can handle game-wise.

I’ve also been searching the AH for deals that I can hang onto until sometime in the future. Herbs that will be used in PvP potions when battlegrounds come out, gear that will be used for the 10-19 twink bracket. The problem is my server is HEAVILY slanted towards alliance, there are about 8,000 horde to 30,000 alliance in fact. That makes things harder. Well, not harder per say, but sales are slower.

On the plus side that also means competition isn’t QUITE as stiff.

All this classic gold making has me itching to go back to retail servers and work harder there at making some gold too, so I might do that from time to time. I’m paid up on my account for quite a while, so I don’t need gold to pay for my subscription any time soon, but I love playing the market. I’m learning a lot just by being in the WoW Economy discord and reading chat. It’s all about doing whatever brings you joy, right? I might only be level 15 (still) but hey, at least it’s something.

As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Classic Shenanigans

I’m only level 14 in classic, not having found much time to level, but I do stand around the auction house trying to get a good bargain. They’ve slowed down slightly, but there are still some deals to be had. I expect with the weekend wrapping up it may slow down even more. I’ve had a few conversations like the one above where I let players know they were actually pricing items for less than vendor value.

I’m not interested in being cruel to people or making fun of them for their mistakes, but I do see this happen a lot and if they tend to price a ton of things for under vendor value I send them a tell to let them know. I donated some gold towards the guild getting a tabard (10g is a lot) and besides that I’ve just been hoping to get some actual play time in, eventually.

An ARK Story

The screenshot above is a capture of the best moment I ever had in ARK. I was playing with Ysharros and my husband and I spotted a brontosaurus egg off in the distance. Mommy dinosaur was a little ways away, and the lure of the egg was too great for me, so I snatched it.

Mommy dinosaur saw me, and started running for me. She would not rest until she had her revenge and she was PISSED. She completely destroyed the little base I had set up down the beach and continued to hunt me – so I dove into deep water and swam to an island, where I became stranded because Mommy dinosaur was still there.

My husband, smart man that he is, decided to fly down on his pterodactyl and scoped me up in his claws, and I cackled as we flew over the brontosaurus. Then his flying dinosaur started to run out of steam as we were overhead. We started cruising lower and lower until I fell right on top of Mommy who had NOT forgotten that I stole her egg.

I was promptly killed and eaten.

It was hilarious, and I laughed so hard at the whole scene, there was just no other response that fit. It’s moments like those that make me so glad I game, and my husband games, and when we can find a moment here and there we actually game together.
