Sorry, my post about what makes a true raider will have to wait until tomorrow. Something way too interesting just happened.
Remember how I started mid-week with my experiment? Well today is two weeks since I actually started this experiment and I decided Sundays were easier to post updates, but I post this for two reasons.
The first was Wednesday night two weeks ago after posting my initial auctions. The second is from this morning. In two weeks I’ve made 10k which is kind of a cool number anyway.
Reason #2 – The One I Hadn’t Anticipated
WHERE THE HELL ARE ALL THE FARMERS??!!
I haven’t run into that guy supplying me all those herbs for a couple of days and my ink supply is running dangerously low. My inventory isn’t at 20 stacks like I want it to be and I’m piece-meal exchanging inks to keep what I need crafted. I’m sorely tempted to log onto Maed and farm herbs, but that ruins the nature of the experiment which is to rely solely on purchasing what I need to make gold on the AH. So I thought maybe I farm it and transfer the gold over to Maed whatever the going rate on the AH is. But that again ruins the whole idea of me spending time using just the AH to make gold rather than farming. So that’s a no go for this experiment. Besides I cut myself off at 15g/stack and buying up the remainder of these guys will just encourage the farmers to inflate the price the next time they post and I’ll have to wait even longer for the price to come down.
Just remember that supply sometimes dries up. Thank goodness I have enough inventory to hold me through for a couple of days, but based on this I need to get my inventory up even higher just in case. It is summer after all and I’m thinking some resources will only become scarcer.
On another note, I was able to heal with my shammy for the first time ever in regular HoL! Thanks to Ambrosyne’s tanking and the assistance of her uber-geared boyfriend Drake the DK and a 75 lock. It’s sorta pathetic that I still don’t have a flyer with the amount of gold I have, but I don’t have 6k floating around on the other toons, so Erd’s gotta wait. 😦 Big thanks to them for helping me out. Who says complaining doesn’t get you anywhere? 😛
