Schubert the mage has sorta been my third toon to work on leveling up to 85, though I really haven’t done much with the ones that are level 85–I really should start running more with Rossini… Anyways, I’ve been working on him to start stock-piling ore for the future professions I will level that need it, like JC, BS, and Engineering. I have a sad feeling I’m going to need a million ore.
Las night I queued for some normal dungeons and did both Throne of Tides and Blackrock Caverns. It was a great time and he got two new rings and some robes. I also got my Gnomeregan Exiles reputation to exalted. It was news to me that the Capital city tabards worked in normal Cataclysm dungeons! I just had one on Schubert for good looks, but it when I saw it was working I was surprised! So I switched to by Guardians of Hyjal tabard since I figured that was more applicable…but the next trash pull, no rep. Weird. So I put the Gnomeregan one back on and away we went. About 330 rep for bosses and 16-17 on trash. Not bad! So for all those that were wondering:
Capital city tabards work on NORMAL dungeons in Cataclysm.
Good times. I’ll have to do some more experimenting with tabards in Cataclysm dungeons since I haven’t done many of them I’m not really sure which dungeons work and which don’t for the new tabards.
I didn’t get much questing in on Schubert last night though since laundry and the gym took up some of my night. I also logged over to Monona (the mage the kid I mentor is playing) and leveled up her tailoring from 180 to like 330. I had STACKS of runecloth in Sibelius’s bank and a bunch of netherweave in Rossini’s bank. So once I got past the dreaded mageweave it was great. I also realized I was interpreting “Working Overtime” guild perk incorrectly as well. It says “Increases the chance to gain a skill increase on tradeskills by 10%.” But I was reading this as a change to gain an additional skill point. But that’s not what it means, I kept waiting to see myself get two skill points. Whoops, reading comprehension, Troutwort?
A final little note on the mage, Schubert…you might recall he got himself a little visit from Mr. Pinchy, well here are some pictures of the scene. Hope you enjoy, it’s been a longtime since I’ve put up a screenshot here!
