We spent most of the night in Ice Claw Village last night, clearing up quests and grinding some XP. Before I realised it, it was 11:30 and I was well aware of how early 6:00 am comes…I am spending too many late nights at the PC, because I’m having so much fun. Ravven dinged 30 and got her lovely Collector’s Edition wings.
There was a lot of competition in the area, including one guild that kept gathering up mobs and running them through our group, hoping to cause us problems; they must have done this two or three times. I just don’t understand the attraction of being a jerk in MMOs. Really – what is it? But we persevered and created a lot of carnage.
There was a boss of sorts located through a portal at the back of the village. Again, like the “boss” in the Training Camp, he dropped nothing. This always shocks me, being as used as I am to Warcraft, where every boss-type encounter will drop loot. If they’re a normal mob, with no loot table, why design a boss fight situation? That confuses me.
Kinah, or lack of, is becoming a really urgent issue. I’ve maxed out gathering, and need to come up with a metric buttload of kinah to take it to the next level. I have tons of armorsmithing patterns and mats in my warehouse, some of which have been donated by others in the legion, and I can’t afford to level it and still have money for training and soul healing. I do a lot of grinding, but I can’t make any money. Partially this is because I try to send any decent drops, or any crafting mats I get, to people in the legion (as we all have been doing). Boo hoo….I need to reconsider what I am doing. If I can’t afford to level a profession, then I should probably give the mats and designs that I’m holding to someone who is, but that makes me sad.
So basically, I suppose I can sum up my game experience currently as being happy but flat broke. :D
