World of Warcraft Classic!!
I've been getting a bit bored of it, honestly. But I feel this need to have just one character at level 70 so I'm on the same footing as my friends when Wrath of the Lich King releases in a few days.
It's funny. I can spend houuurrrrsss farming up ores and fish. But levelling? The experience is tiring and boring and my attention span is lacking and if someone dares to attack me and interrupts this god-awful process I die a little inside. I'm just slowly plodding away, grateful that there's an XP buff at the moment.
Then it happened. Finally, today, I reached level 70! Wrath of the Lich King Classic — the peak of this game! — arrives in 5 days and I have managed to make it without the act of "no-lifing". 🤣
I had these plans of "no-lifing" the game, and if I had I probably would've been 70 a week or so ago. Alas. I really wasn't in the mood.
I haven't really done much gaming at all lately. I have my new camera to play with and I'm getting a new PC in a few days and I have this weird tendency to not want to play anything because I'll be experiencing it better in a few days. 😅
So during this period of time where I'm waiting for parts for my new PC to arrive and am plodding around in WoW, waiting, I no longer have the burden of Reaching Level 70 upon my shoulders and I can go forth and do other things. More enjoyable things.
Namely fishing and mining and blacksmithing.
I maxxed out my cooking very early on, but at the time of writing this... my fishing is at the lowly level of 190, I'm only up to mining Mithril, and my blacksmithing isn't much better.
Being that there is still a good 5 days before the expansion launches, other people are fighting to level their professions too... so I'm tempted to not even level my Blacksmithing just yet and focus on capitalising upon other peoples profession urges.
I will have ALL the gold. All of it. 😆
Plus, fishing is necessary. I want my Sea Turtle.
Before I would have all the gold, though, I decided to spend a chunk of my gold. I have no interest in pug dungeons with randoms and all of my friends are waiting for Lich King to hit, so, I went and attempted to buy a bunch of gear off the auction house.
I say "attempted" because I didn't end up buying anything. Everything was massively overpriced and inspired my desire to continue on with my professions to craft my own things because dayum people were greedy.
(Yes. I would be too if I were in their position. xD)
I find the levelling and questing process tedious as hell, yet I love this — farming. I can literally just roam around for hours upon hours, mining ore and fishing up fish from fishing holes whilst rocking out to various tunes. It puts my brain in a nice, mellow spot and I just enjoy it.
Today I started my farming adventure with 1112 gold on my person...
Let's see how much I can make before Lich King descends upon us! 😁💰💰💰
Until next time! 🙃
