breaking hiatus briefly to post this because i need to put it somewhere.
my fish died today.
Hey, your Death Knight's named Penumbral, right? Because if it is I totally saw you in the Shrine when I hearthed there on my warlock but kind of chickened out of being all 'Hey! It's satanicanguisette/Bethany from tumblr!' in case I was wrong.
Haha yeah that’s me. My DK is Penumbral Moonwinged.
You’re more than welcome to say hi to me! Whispers work better than emotes though. I tend to not have a lot of focus so I might accidentally miss an emote if I’m in tunnel-vision mode.
I’ve been really scarce lately on tumblr (my follower count is dropping slowly but surely woops), and I’m about to be more scarce.
hahaha man, not two minutes later, i get someone trying to insist i should sell for half of what i’m looking for on a completely unrelated pet. and then ANOTHER person wanting to trade their pet for what i’m selling (which i just sold one of those being offered, so uh, dude i don’t want one it was an extra, and also, way to lowball again it was barely a fraction in value compared to what i’m selling….)
the best part is all three of these people (these two and the person asking for a rabbit) tried the tired line of “they never sell for that much” and “prices are dropping fast so you should take this great offer i made.”
goddamn, people. i’m not stupid and i understand supply/demand. these pets will drop every day in value because the market gets flooded. i don’t mind when prices drop because of this, that’s how it works.
what i’m not going to tolerate is being told i should make ridiculous deals based on false claims; i make deals with people who answer my trade threads or are on tumblr or who are being exceptionally polite or are just starting out or whatever. not jerks interested in scalping my meager profits.
i hate AH’ing, i reallllly do.
(pet collecting is the only thing that makes me wade through the obnoxiousness. …i really need to talk to nebet still about the two guild banks full of shit that needs to be sold woops. HI NEBET.)
beastlyart replied to your post “hahaha someone on stormrage spamming trade chat about wanting to buy a…”
"What the fuck is a Darkmoon Rabbit, is it just a rabbit skin? Let me look this shit up…. OH GOD I NEED IT."
i’m not a huge fan of the rabbits, tbqh. (and my roommate’s deathly terrified of them anyway.)
i’ve only got one as part of my collection because PET COLLECTING. (ugfhfhf so many dumb tcg i will probably never achieve. coughcough ethereal coughcough)
but like, even both of us appreciate the skin they used for it and the reference to monty python. :D
hahaha someone on stormrage spamming trade chat about wanting to buy a DM rabbit. i don’t plan on selling mine since it was a gift, but since i know there’s ALWAYS several rabbits up on the AH at a time on that server, i was curious why they’d be doing that since if they have the gold to afford one, they don’t really need to ask in chat after it.
so for kicks i ask how much they’re looking for.
they inform me (apparently seriously) that they are offering 10,000. i got a really big chuckle out of that—but since i figure maybe they just don’t know/don’t understand the current market value/whatever (and because being rude never got me anywhere), i point out it’s worth about 5 times that (give or take, sometimes they can go as low as 20k, and as high as 70k, depending how close it is to the faire or not).
they come back with some tripe about how they NEVER sell for that much anymore.
o. ok. carry on, then, i guess.
i gave a polite “good luck” because there’s really nothing else i can say to that.
but boy did i laugh.
i suppose at least they weren’t offering 10k for an ethereal….
lalala more dumb bitching about a game i keep getting reminded i really hate a lot of the hoop-jumping in and in which i wouldn’t really care except it bugs me to have this excess with no way to dump it unless i go do content i don’t feel like wasting my spoons on
re: timeless isle stuff if you have any kind of stealth at all you can pretty much run around grabbing chests and avoiding combat until you build up timeless gear (this is what i did on nifa, who is shitty healy druid). there are enough other people tagging everything that it shouldn’t be too bad. the only tricky part is weapons etc but there are some 476’s off the vendor i believe which should help a little
also i got some boe mail agi braces out of a lfr goody bag earlier if those would be good for any alts
the majority of alts do not have stealth no.
i’m sorry i’m not clear on my rants—i must not be since people are suggesting the things they are—but i’m talking about a) a character with capped vp and no rep to spend the vp and b) it all reminded me that if i want to do a thing on other characters, i kind of can’t because spoons.
i have VP to spend. i can’t spend it. i have alts that need gear. i realised i can’t really do what i was doing, in taking “alternative” routes (i.e. earning currency slowly through dailies) because to get the gear i gotta do the “options” i took for the first character, only to end up right back at the beginning again with being unable to spend it without rep.
i have some timeless gear, yes. the thing is, it doesn’t matter much?
there’s not enough for more than an alt or two and grinding for it specifically is more spoons i don’t have.
the whole thing is about how i don’t have spoons to do what i want because of the way the gameplay has become. i can’t get away with doing bare minimum and coasting on “welfare” like i used to?
no amount of suggestions changes that fact. :(
I would suggest dumping your valor on Timeless Coins — or on Blood Spirits to throw on the AH or use to craft things! THEN with the running of the ToT, which a ton of people are actually doing right now to catch up on the legendary quest and gear.
the first two aren’t exactly options, though according to my roommate, partner, and apparently you, there are people still doing the other lfr stuff since it’s prereq for legendary stuff and i didn’t think about that part.
but i was mostly referring to the isle as being ghostly
i also really don’t often have the mental fortitude or spoons to do the lfr/raiding usually, which was a big part of my convoluted rant (aside from the fact i just don’t like it in the first place, which doesn’t help).
and also the stuff suggested doesn’t help on alts either for a lot of reasons esp. when i’d want the gear for… gearing alts.
this is really long again sorry but im noticing a trend in the responses so i’m using your reply as a platform since it was first. sorry again.
in which i unfollow someone because they consistently fail to tag and i am just not comfortable going to folk and saying hey
spiders are bad enough can we tag shit like what you just posted pls pls pls
when it’s their blog they can post what they want and not tag if they want
and its just easier to unfollow after it keeps happening rather than get into confrontation for me ahhhhguh.
and before anyone asks no its not any of you
