Bloggers Business: Preparing for Cataclysm
This weeks shared topic over at Blog Azeroth was suggest by Nexdominus.
What are you doing if anything to get ready for cataclysm?
After last weeks “less than acceptable” shared topic post I plan to do right by this one. I started playing WoW just two short weeks before The Burning Crusade shipped. This meant that I had absolutely no prep time for the expansion. When Wrath was launch I can’t remember what exactly I did, but I’m sure I had some empty plans with no basis for accomplishing them. Not with Cataclysm! There are quite a few ways that one can prepare in getting ready for Cataclysm and here are the ways I’m getting myself ready:
Flask of Frostwyrm (10 stacks) I plan to have this buff for every minute I play my way to 85 on my Shaman, Priest, Warlock, Mage, and Druid.
King’s Amber (13/20) I favour caster classes hence all the important gems for casters.
Cardinal Ruby (7/20)
Dreadstone (1 stack)
Ametrine (1 stack)
Wintergrasp Commendations (2/100) 2000 honor per one. I would like to snag a couple of those PvP titles that come with rated Battle Grounds. I am most likely going to lower this because of 2 reasons: Its 30 shards / 9 WG marks for one, and Im trying to grab “Staff of Jordan” for my mage which costs 325 shards.
Frostweave Bags (4/12) Gotta put my stuff some where.
Minor Health potion (25/120) Always come in handy whist leveling.
Minor Mana potion (20/80) I originally planned for 120 that way all 3 of my characters get 40 each, but then I remembered hunters won’t have mana in the expansion.
Heirloom: Mage (Chest, shoulders, weapon, 2 trinkets) I wanna level up in style!
Heirloom: Druid (Chest, shoulders, weapon, 2 trinkets)
Heirloom: Hunter (Chest, shoulders, weapon, 2 trinkets)
PvP Set (Chest, Shoulders, Helmet, Gloves, Boots) I don’t think the Horde are going to be so generous when I take their quest mobs / items.
Healing Set (Chest, Shoulders, Helmet, Gloves, Boots) Might come in handy for the new instances.
Note: Whatever is crossed out is what I currently have, and if it has no number in the brakets just a total . . .well that just means I haven’t started collecting them yet.
Anslym the Shaman: Gear him out a little more from the 25 man’s. Grab the PvP set and Healing set on him. Not much more I can do on him.
Chmelyk the Priest: Gear him out if not in 25 man gear then in 10 man gear. Maybe grab some tailoring recipes from ICC.
Trynda the Warlock: Get her to 80. I’m not sure if I’m going to gear her out or just wait to get some quest rewards and gear her out that way. All depends on how my priest and shaman gear out.
Anslym: I would like to get “The Exalted” on him.
Possibly try for “Loremaster”.
or sure, even if it’s the night before Patch 4.0 comes out, I’m going to get “The Explorer” on Anslym.
Chmelyk: “Fall of the Lich King” would be nice. Chmelyk the Kingslayer has a nice ring to it.
Trynda: “Level 80” anyone?
I’ll try for “The Explorer” also.
As a person:
Maybe pick up some addons.
Try and see if I can’t become a keyboarder instead of a clicker. Although that last one might take a while. I would love to get a new graphics card, but that might have happening in the next week or some ^+^
First and foremost: become a better blogger. I’m just currently learning the ropes. You know: what works, what doesn’t, what looks great and what doesn’t.
Come out with some more Shaman posts.
Write up some roleplaying posts
Possibly create a few video’s.
And just like everyone else who is preparing for Cataclysm . . . Gold. I would like to achieve a bare minimum of 30,000g but I wouldn’t say no too more. I hope I inspired a few idea’s in you on how to prepare for Cataclysm, I like to think I have all the bases covered with my plan but I am human and I may have forgotten something. I hope you enjoyed reading.
