Into the Nether

Ok reputation. Other than building rep with Stormwind and Darnassus (beinga nightelf and all) I have never thought about it. Hem had fun getting "Son's of Hodir" for those shoulder enchants as I helped her with a couple of quests but generally - of no interest.

Epic flying... oooo... 5000g aghhh
....but if you have Honor hold faction you can have it .. oh wait its changed to Stormwind... weee so I coughed up 4k gold + 200g for a mount and epic I am.

The downside; I have a griffin. Its very nice and all but its a bit boring. Yes it is 280% but at the end of the day its a griffin with a hoody. Also in some ways I think I would have preferred flying to stay at 60% instead of 150% as I don't honestly see a lot of difference in the speed.

So back to reputation and Stevie (yay Steve a mention in my blog) who introduced me to WOW back when I was playing Guild Wars. I lunked my PC over to his place on Saturday night and we gamed and discussed flying so inevitably it went onto what we were flying and he said he was rep grinding.

This (see picture) now one of my aims for the future - a Netherwing Drake

This was Stevie and me doing the reputation grind hence the Orc me rather than Night Elf me :)

Update on multy gatherer

So as mentioned I started a death knight to be my gatherer character. How is it going? Since starting I have gone from 1500 to 4500 gold in the space of a couple of weeks. The best thing was the initial setup of routes and gathermate and then just selling evrything in sight. Hem has discovered the Darkmoon Fayre so we have agreed that she will keep the low quantity items from there and I have my Netherstorm ones.

As an aside hem needed some nightmare vine and being 78 means I do not get aggro even up close - I flew over to Shadowmoon Valley and had the starnge experience of being ignored - very odd.

To sum up should you do multiple gathering - yes most definitely.

She's a nightmare

Well the vine anyway. So tonite was my first venture to Shadowmoon Valley. My what a depressing place all fire and brimstone. However it is very good for herbing and being 78 I get ignored by mobs.

The black temple is more green but I couldn't get into it. Money is still going up nicely

Fayre enough

Darkmoon fayre. This also seems to be a limited sell place. Herbs, leather etc are quite popular - this one is for Hem though. The special item seems to be the frog pets; hint talk to the frog and the boy will stop and you can get the swag ;)
