Ahh, life on the road.
I knew this is what life would be like when I started down this path, but the reality of it smacks you in the face sometimes. I crawled all over Westfall, uncovering the entire map, and managed to only find maybe four or five quests I could complete. Redridge Mountains proved to be better with nearly a dozen quests. And then it’s off to Darkshore, where there were a few quests to do and then the majority of the zone is locked behind kill tasks.
The daily quests help, of course, being able to earn 2k exp every day keeps my spirits up. And then there is the Valentine’s Day event… which unfortunately includes killing, so I can’t participate fully. *sigh* Time to head back to dwarf-land and goat-town, I suppose.
However, my decision not to kill for cash leaves me plenty of time to study the markets, buying goods from people who just want quick cash and reselling them to people willing to pay more. I can sell copper bars for 7 gold a stack, but people will put them up for anywhere from 3 to 5 gold. When you add in the market manipulation with my own mining and herbing, it totals out to over a hundred gold in my pocket – and that’s after I bought myself one of those engineered tackle boxes and a couple other nice bags.
I also managed to fish up one of those books that taught me how to find schools of fish, so that will be a lot easier from here on out. Level 16 and moving…
