What’s Been and What’s Coming

The (recent) past:

I’ve been grinding along in game.  No new posts recently because nothing interesting has happened since the fun little questline early on the path to the legendary daggers.

For what its worth, I am just 1/3 of the way done with the Dragon Soul collection quest, Cluster Clutch.  Since this is the last raid in the expansion, and I expect interest in WoW to gradually wane as people get bored with this content, it seems reasonable to me that I will not have a shot at getting the legendary daggers.  I simply won’t be able to run DS enough to get through the two collection quests.  This is as I expected.  In general, casual raiding guilds just don’t kill enough bosses to get the legendaries.

I spend most of my time working on gold making.  I’m just about to hit 500,000 gold, which was my goal.  The gem market has bottomed out because people aren’t getting much new gear anymore.  As the lull between now and MoP stretches out, more people will play alts so I’ll always have the glyph market to rely on, but I don’t think I’ll be raking in the gold any more until we see pandas.

The (near) future:

My guild is 5/8 in DS on 10 man normal.  Blizzard announced that DS will be gradually nerfed, so we’ll get through the rest one way or another, either pre-nerf or post-nerf.  After that happens, it would not surprise me at all to see some of our long-time players drift away from the game.  Its sad, but its life.

This blog will probably continue the zombie-life that it has.  I made only 58 posts in 2011, and considering the new raids and such that really is not very many.  With the homogenizing of the game, there is very little rogue-specific information for me to convey.  Between the Dungeon Journal and LFR in game, there is less need than ever to tab out of the game and find information.  What information is needed is covered nicely by Elitist Jerks.

I’m keeping the blog alive so that it can return as a valued source of information when Mists of Pandaria hits.  I did the one-year commitment, so I’ll still be around.

Besides, I’d like to see the blog hit 1,000,000 pageviews (not counting feedreaders) and that will happen in another couple of months.

    I’m hoping that later in the patch, they let the legendary parts drop from LFR. I don’t get to raid a whole lot and our guild is 6/8 so far, of which I’m about 1/10 of the way through Cluster Clutch.

    Thing is, with our legendary being released in the last raid and taking so long to get, it will be pretty useless for any type of progression. In contract, Dragonwrath was hugely useful for everyone racing for HC-DS world firsts. If you are lucky enough to get a legendary, you will probably be replacing it w/ a blue at level 90.

    I’ll probably try and get my guild to help run DS runs in MoP to help me finish the legendary, just for the guild achievement or something.

      We still do an occasional Firelands run to help our shadow priest get closer to Dragonwrath.

      Really, to get any legendary your guild needs to be doing full or nearly full clears every week from launch until you get sick of the raid. If you don’t do that, you’ll never finish it before the next raid is released.

      I also have some hope for my own sake that the pieces might drop in LFR, but I doubt it will happen. It wouldn’t bother me. Legendaries should be rare and hard to get.

    I feel your pain as I have been stuck at 976 out of 1000 for completion of the 2nd phase of Dragonwrath. :(
    I have thought about trying to pug it but then I regain my sanity.

    As for as my Rogue I am content with the fact that as least I had a chance to complete phase one. I really wish they would let that be a repeatable zone. It would make a nice Rogue training ground. :)

    Oh great, now that my lvl 85 Rogue is maxed out on jewel making the bottom drops out of the market. I don’t see how anyone could make any where near 500,000 gold in jewel making. I’ve carefully figured out which rings and trinkets earn the most profit, but people just aren’t buying that much these days.

    Unfortunately Dragon’s Soul is way out of my league, as I only have time for casual dungeons :-(
