Prepare the Preparations!

Yea, I ripped off a Ludo albums title. Bite me.

So it turns out I was correct. I’ll only need 425 engineering to get started on Cataclysm engineering patterns. Thats only five more from where I am right now and as I type, I am in flight to mine some ore. Rawr.

Things left to do:

Max out honor for gear sets. The initial starter set pieces cost anywhere from 1250 to 2200 and max honor at any time is 4K. So with that maxed, I should be able to see 2-3 piece upgrades depending on what I want immediately when I hit 80. From what I understand, these starter pieces can then be traded in for higher level stuff without any additional honor once the necessary rating is achieved. Slick.

Make money. I’ve been a slacker on this front lately, but I blame the holidays and leveling engineering. I have three full days off between now and the launch of Cata and if I just knuckle down and do it, I could have an easy couple grand ready to help the leveling process.

Stock up on mats. This will come as I farm money but having the necessary bandages, foods, and maybe even some elixirs will make leveling that much faster and easier. Im geared to the hilt in PvP gear so while I’ll have a good deal of stam, I wont be killing things as quickly as I could otherwise. Not that it will be slow, mind you, just not super duper fast.

Maybe goof around with the fury tree. I dont have the gear to support prot, so perhaps a respec to fury for my secondary tree would be fun. Im thinking single minded fury, just for the oldschool appeal.


Turkey Day, WSG weekend and other thoughts

So Thanksgiving came and went and I had friends and family in town. I love Thanksgiving, primarily because I love to eat and drink and be merry. But I also enjoy family more and more. So there’s that. I’m back from the short hiatus induced by the holidays. Yay!

Its WSG weekend, ya’ll! Yee-haw! Expect some serious ass kicking to go down courtesy of Bearwolftriceratiger. We’re gonna bring the hurt. Hopefully we’ll see a time when we can get a 5 man wrecking crew queing up together to lay waste to the field.

I’m considering putting together a prot set and spec, but the money sink this would involve right before Cata and all the gear changes has me thinking its a bad idea. Though, recent leveling of engineering leaves with the need for two belts. One for speed boost and one for mind controlling people off of ledges 😛

Speaking of leveling engineering, I’m going to put off going all the way to 450 right before the patch. Invariably, there will be cheaper ways to get there once the expansion hits and it’ll make more sense to simply level that way. Right now, I’m just going to push up another 5-10 levels and start sitting on my gold stash. I want to have 1-2K saved up when Cata drops.

Ya, rambly and pointless post. don’t hate. Something more substantive when I get off work, I promise.
