With my limited contiguous in-game time, I have found that the easiest/most efficient way for me to grind for mats & cash is to grind the Auction House (AH).
Probably 3 to 4 days a week, while doing household chores, I do a scan of the AH, the let Auctioneer’s bottom scanner call out to me (where ever I am in the house) when it finds a potential bargain.
Even though I have a fair grasp in the AH, I still have a lot to learn. My cash on hand is rarely more than 5,000, with potential 5,000 of sales in my bags or on the AH. Unfortunately I spend it as fast, if not faster than I pull it in (Mind you… what is the point of having more if it isn’t being used.. maybe 5,000 is the right balancing point).
Anyway, I will discuss mods & techniques in other posts, for now I want to point you to some resources I use. (more…)

Extreme Casual Player View – Events
OK, so this is my first blog entry, first of many hopefully, and the thing that has greeted me this morning when looking at my RSS headlines is that the Midsummer Fire Festival is here, as covered in many sources (Blizzard , Matticus , WoWVault , Banana Shoulders, WoWInsider, /hug, Mania’s Arcania, Angry Bansidhe, Random Ravings, Kaliope’s Crafting Blog).
So what does this mean for someone like my extremely casual Gnome. Not much really.. as I will really only be logging on this Friday night, there wont be any torch tossing or catch for me. No sneaking into Horde cities to throw another shrimp on the bonfire.
Do I begrudge the fact that others are revelling while I hibernate.. NO!
But I am just a little bit envious…
Tell me.. do you induldge in all of the festival delights that you can devour (and remain upright), or do you stand at the side of the dancefloor grumbling about the lack of bodies for the serious work of empire (or toon) building? Maybe you are just like me.. hibernating…
Gnomer and out!
