Streaming? Streaming! (Again)

It has been a few years since I actually sat down and streamed with any regularity (hmm, have I ever?) – and I keep wanting to change that, so I’m making another (another) attempt. My schedule will be all over the place, since my partner is a first responder on shift work, but I plan on streaming from 9-11pm Atlantic, which means 8-10pm Eastern. I’m sticking with what I know, for now that means World of Warcraft and I tossed some RimWorld in there as well. I’d eventually also like to expand that to a few hobbies, like drawing and fiber arts. Maybe some knitting or spinning. We’ll see how it goes!

Why? Well, when the other half is on nights, I find it difficult to feel motivated and I tend to want to go to bed at 8pm. That’s a bit early, even for me. This way I get a little social interaction and can plan some things to do. I’m excited about it! Will it take off? I have no idea. We’ll just have to see.

If you’re interested in seeing this crazy Canuck fumble her way through some games, you can check me out on twitch this Wednesday!

As always, happy gaming – no matter where you find yourself.

What’s Happening on the WoW Economy Discord This Week [Oct5-12]

Sniping has been a big conversation this week, thanks in part to the Saddlebag Exchange community. This is an API sniper that links to discord, with plenty of guides on how to set things up. First timer snipers and long term snipers alike have been making use of the product, and the snips/flips/sales channel has been booming because of it. If you’re not into API sniping, it still might be worth it to lurk and figure out what items you want to add to your own server sniping list. I’ll be posting a more in-depth look at this one shortly, so watch for that.

Maybe farming is more your thing? If you’re looking for something low key to farm, you might want to try the Glimmer of Satisfaction from BFA. This is used in a number of pets, and is a random event while eating from a feast. Who wouldn’t want to eat their way to 100k+ gph!

Crafting has also been a popular topic of conversation this week – with Graceland boasting their profits of over 3 million gold from 18 days of crafting orders. That is some dedication right there.

Stockpiling for 10.2? Some are, some have learned their lesson from previous updates and are not. Whatever your decision, you can talk about it with the rest of the WoW Economy Discord.

That’s it for this week! Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.

Mount(s) #358-368

Even though I love making gold in World of Warcraft, I don’t usually spend that much. Yesterday I decided what was the point of just ‘collecting’ gold, and I purchased 8 mounts that I didn’t own yet, and I also picked up the Blizzcon bundle that Blizzard announced later on in the day.

That brings my total mounts up to 368 – inching my way closer and closer to the magical 500 that I’m aiming for. I am not convinced I’ll be able to get it before the end of Dragonflight, but we’ll just have to see how it goes.

Setting up Shadowlands Tables – Why?

I’ve been trying to refine my world of warcraft gold making habits, and focusing on how I can make use of my alt army. I watched this video posted by CanadiaTV and remembered that I had not set up the Shadowlands tables on these characters. I followed the guide and went about getting that done. The pet charms that you can obtain are still very much worth it, especially since I deal in selling only level 25 pets. Leveling them is the easy part – I use my tokens to upgrade the green pets to blue, making them look even more appealing on the auction house.

I’ve currently got two active WoW accounts, though I have been debating activating a third just for fun. On my second account is where I keep all my AH / market stuff, and my daily routine has me logging in once or twice a day to 25 characters to put items for sale. I don’t partake in cancel scanning, I find it a waste of my time. Next, I’ll handle my SL tables. There’s really not much to that, I send off any pet tokens to one ‘holder’ character, send out new missions, and move on. I use the TLDR addon which is absolutely essential in making this a painless process.

After those chores are done, I log in to one of my four main crafters and complete their crafting weeklies. Four characters allows me to cover all of the professions, I don’t usually bother with gathering unless I need a bit of down time. Spreading the characters out 1 per day helps stave off burn out, and still gives me 3 days of misc. things to do (like timewalking). I have 4+1 “main” characters, this season I’ve been playing Petites over on A52 as my main, she’s an evoker, and I am absolutely loving the class. Then I have a paladin, Demon hunter, Monk, and Priest as my ‘back up’ characters (they cover my professions, also). I feel like having these 5 characters is plenty for me, but that does mean I have 30+ ‘unused’ characters who have no real purpose. I tend to level up alts and then forget about them, which is of course the whole reason that I’m setting up the Shadowlands tables, so they can be semi useful. I’ve got 12 done so far, and I’m hoping to get the rest up and running before too long. It does take a bit of time to get it all set up, but in the end it really pays off, and being consistent is absolutely worth it.

As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Mount #358

Eve’s Ghastly Rider is mount #358 in my attempt to reach 500 before the end of Dragonflight! I love this mount, it’s beautiful. It came ‘free’ from the trading post this year for completing the Traveler’s Log.
