Got my Darkmoon Card: Greatness today when the Faire opened.  Had to spend 700g on the last card, which I know is way above my set limit, but when all you’ve seen for the last 2 weeks were prices averaging 900g, 700g looked like a beautiful deal.  Plus I found a new way to make money, so I could afford it.  What’s that you ask?  A way to make money?  Earn 10k honor, buy rare gem, sell gem on AH for gold.  I turned 70k honor into 316g, so yeah, I figured I could spend a little more on my last card.

I’ve been leveling Innoruuk now that the Midsummer Fire Festival (MSFF) is over.  He’s 77 now, but I’m stubborningly waiting for the 3.2 patch to go in before I spend any money on flying training or a mount.  Once he hits 80, I’ll shelve him and level Dalkado, and then Aaeru.


Good Naxx10 Run

Bracers of Lost Sentiments
Finally, some nice wrists.  My old Golden Limb Bands weren’t bad, but they weren’t really awesome either.

Circle of Death
Got that freaking stupid Signet of Bridenbrad off my finger.  No more running Gundrak and hoping for Hemorrhaging Circle to drop.

Loatheb’s Shadow
Man, I kinda felt bad about getting this since  it’s going to be replace by the Darkmoon card in 2 weeks.  It’s nice for now, though.

The Stray
Arr, I’m a pirate!  Really though, it was going to rot otherwise, and I like having fist weapons that I never use for some stupid reason.

Shoulder Token
This was mine by default.  No other warriors, hunters, or shaman on this raid.  I intended to turn it in for tank shoulders, but the Abomination Shoulderpads I already have are actually better.  My DPS shoulders are better than the tier DPS shoulders as well.  So I guess grats me on 5 gold then.

So yeah, it was a good run for me. Puts me at 60 heroic badges, just 20 shy of being able to buy a BP, but I almost want to save them for something else.  I dunno, I’m indecisive on that right now.  Also I’m epic in every slot but chest and my other finger.

I also grabbed an Ace Card for 550g, which I know is above my 500g per card limit, but when all the other Ace cards are like 750-850g, this was a huge bargin.

4 cards down, 4 to go

I picked up the 3, 4, 5, and 6 of Nobles over the last day, each for about 475 gold.  The remaining cards are either way too expensive (800g for an Ace at the moment), or just aren’t for sale.  I’ve made another 140g or so from my gem sales, and my Saronite Ore is still waiting for it’s bid to time out.  Some guy went and bid on them all for the lower price, so I’m not getting the full buy out price, but I think that’s more my fault for setting them where I did (1g buy out, 75s bid).

It’s in the Cards

I’ve got about 5500 gold now, and it’s very tempting to go and spend it on some Darkmoon Nobles cards.  There are a couple completed sets on the AH for roughly that amount, but if you price check all 8 cards individually, you can save about 600g in total.  I’ve got about  weeks before the next faire comes around, so I think I’ll just pick up each card as I find them for sale under 500g between now and then.  Pair that up with doing dailies, and I’ll maintain a nice amount of cash as I go along.
