Nomadic Gamers, eh! Wed, 21 Aug 2019 01:07:20 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Dabbling in a few sales Tue, 20 Aug 2019 12:23:42 +0000

I haven’t had a lot of free gaming time lately, and when I’ve had a moment here or there I wasn’t really playing world of warcraft, instead I found myself in Minecraft, ARK, and a few other single player games that I’ve collected on steam (Slay the Spire). I AM still playing WoW, but it’s been pretty reduced. There’s a lot of excitement about the classic servers, and last week I went and made my characters on the PvE RP server. I’ve got another post about that already, so there’s no need for me to state it all over again.

In any case, one of the things I’ve been getting into more lately is pet battle sales (this is also something I’ll miss about Classic, since there are no pet battles). I play on two servers, a high population and a low population. The high population has a different set of pets that are more readily available at a lower price, typically those from dungeons, raids, and island excursions. The lower population realm has a lot of crafted pets for a cheaper price, along with world obtained pets.

I’ve been comparing pets in the two markets and purchasing the lower cost ones on one server to re-sell on another. The thing is, you need volume, and I’m not quite there yet, so I’m only making a little bit of gold a day, but profit is still profit, and I figure if I keep at it for a bit I’ll slowly get there. Plus I still need a way to make coin on the server where I buy all these pets at, it does no good to run out and then to be unable to purchase anything.

Since TSM won’t keep track of my stats across server (ie: I purchase a pet and transfer it, I lose the info on how much I purchased it for when I am on the other server) I’ve been tracking it in a simple google doc instead. I don’t need to know much information, I just want to know what I purchased the pet for, how much I sold it for, and what my profit is. After two days, keeping track is pretty good. It doesn’t take much time, and I’m looking forward to paying attention to any trends I notice. As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Coming Soon? Mon, 19 Aug 2019 13:40:19 +0000

I saw this mentioned today – a coming soon splash page from Trion, along with quotes from ArchAge players about how poorly they found the game. I have no idea what the splash page is supposed to depict though. Is the game being rebooted? Is a new expansion coming out that fixes things? A new legendary server? Anyone have any info? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

Preparing for Classic Sun, 18 Aug 2019 15:00:54 +0000

I’ve finally settled on a few things for WoW classic. My name was taken across all of the servers I wanted to play on (and then I received DM asking if I wanted to pay and buy them back.. uh no thanks) so I created my three and now it’s just a matter of settling on the one I actually want to play as my main. I created a human paladin, a human warrior, and a night elf druid. I’m probably going to main a paladin or a druid, I want the ability to tank, heal, or DPS depending on my mood. Ideally I’d like to spend most of my time in classic tanking, because it’s one aspect of gameplay that I’ve never really given a chance. I’ve always been too scared, I’ve always valued the opinions of strangers over my own abilities.

That’s something I dearly want to change.

Are you going to be playing WoW Classic? What faction / race / class? I am pretty sure I’ll be going alliance, but I do also want to set up some horde characters somewhere. Are you doing anything special to prepare for the launch next week (that’s right, it’s coming up fast)? Have any addons that you just can’t live without? Let me know in comments and as always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!

Little Mittens Sun, 18 Aug 2019 00:59:50 +0000

I still need to finish the thumbs, but I’ve got some cute little mittens finished up for my son (or daughter, whoever needs them) in my handspun yarn! They didn’t turn out too bad and I like the rustic look they have.

Whatever Happened to the Road to 5 million Gold? Sat, 17 Aug 2019 01:07:02 +0000

In January (or maybe it was February?) I decided that I wanted to do blog posts about working my way to 5 million gold as a casual player.

So whatever happened to those posts and goals?

They took a big ‘ol crap, that’s what. I got bored, life got busy, and I ended up spending almost all of the money that I had accumulated, so now I have about 500,000 gold to my name and my dreams of purchasing the auction house mount from BFA have pretty much been dashed and smashed all over the ground.

I’m contemplating starting back up again and trying to inch my way forward – but – with the release of classic servers I’m scared that populations may dwindle and money making may become even more difficult than I already find it. Since I’m not exactly playing much these days finding the time to level up and PLAY the game has been slim to none.

Still, the desire is there, so maybe.
