Remember yesterday when I said I had a goal of 75 points of enchant a week using a method of AH + some farming…. I need to rethink my plan. So yesterday I actually logged on, did quite a bit of farming and managed to get myself to 355 enchant, a 40 pts raise. I had also farmed my two stacks of fish in time for tonight raid so I was pretty happy with myself. So being at 355 I can start enchanting using Wotlk mats and my initial plan went right out the window…
See, a stack of infinite dust goes for over 200g on my server. Most of the cheapest enchants to level with requires that particular dust. I did some math and for the next 100 points of skills I’m looking at an average of 60g per skill point wich will increase to about 180g per skill point toward the end. I counted about 9000g worth of enchanting mats to get me into Cata range….
My wallet cannot survive that.
With the AH out of the picture I figured I would be farming instances but soloing a woltk instance is still a 30-45 minutes trip for an average of two to three greens. All in all, I would get about 1 skill point per instance run, less toward the end. I counted about 60 to 70 hours of farming… at my current rate that’s easily two months…
The biggest point of frustration in farming instances is that no drop is guaranteed. I have done entire runs before without a single green drop. Thinking that and the time required for an instance clear, I’m wondering if quests could be the way to go? I leveled my Dk horde side and I suppose there could be quite a few quests left over Alliance side. At 10 minutes top to finish one I have a guaranteed green most of the time and there’s always drops possible. So far this is looking like my best option.
Also, I was thinking getting all the cloth I could and bribe a tailor to make me some cheap greens. Should help alot to overcome the rough patches.
So that’s my plan for now… if any of you have suggestions I’d be glad for the ideas.
