More 2.4 Updates for Jewelcrafters & Gatherers

March 24, 2008

I have some bad news for Jewelcrafters. The new Brilliant Glass item has already been nerfed. Today I logged in and tried making a few more, and it now has a 23 hour cooldown. While I understand the reasons behind this, likely an attempt to avoid a flood of blue gems on the market, I’m still a bit sad. It was nice to think that I would clear my bags of all the green tribbles and make something useful from them. Ah well, at least the gem economy won’t go down the crapper 24 hours after the patch, right?


Gathering Daily Quest in 2.4

February 21, 2008

Yes, there’s a gathering quest coming in the 2.4 patch. I actually didn’t realize this until I got in there and started picking up quests. This one starts in Shattrath City, near the flight master. You are asked to collect 8 nether residue, which supposedly drops anywhere in Outland. I’ve done this quest 2-3 times on each of my gatherers to try and figure out the best way to complete it. Unfortunately all of my research is subject to change between now and release. It’s pretty obvious to me that they are still tweaking drop rates. On the first day of mining I collected all 8 quest drops after about a dozen nodes. Two days later it took over 30 nodes to get the same 8 drops, so clearly the drop rate is in flux. Either that or I just had horrible luck on the second pass.


Leatherworking update + farming

May 11, 2007

I have been stalled with LW since I hit 355, I’m sure the rest of you know this particular spot. It’s when the green mail recipes dry up and we’re forced to make blue stuff. Well I just haven’t had the time to farm copious amounts of leather and primals with all the other things I’ve been doing, so Kali just sat at 355 for weeks.


The Skinny on Skinning in Patch 2.1

April 18, 2007

Well, I have some good news and some bad news. Or I guess you could more accurately say that reviews are mixed. I’m not sure what to tell you guys really. I did two tests of skinning on the test realm and one went well, one did not. I guess you’ll have to be the judge:


BM Skinning vs World Skinning

The gauntlet has been thrown, the challenge has been issued. The showdown is on! And the winner is…. Black Morass <take a bow>.


Skinning in the Black Morass

April 12, 2007

You should all know by now that I am willing to do anything to bring you the scoop when it comes to crafting. I trashed my Scryer rep to demonstrate how to switch between Scryer and Aldor. Krystella still hasn’t recovered, she continues to plod slowly through Honored. Not to mention all the stealth mining missions, which involved much dying and repairing.
