Due to the protests continuing, the kid I mentor spent the night last night since his mom was going to sleep in the capital. He asked if he could stay over so as to not have to stay home alone and I agreed. I have additional comments on parental responsibility here, but I’ll keep them to myself.
Anyways, so with him over all night I had to figure out exactly what we were going to do with the evening. His goldthorn business is still running strong, so I knew he wanted to get some herbing in eventually. But I dragged him through Setthek Halls at 67 and then Shadow Labs. A few quests in Nagrand and a few in Netherstorm and he was 68. His character is technically ready for Northrend now, I suppose I’ll drag her up there eventually, but he is set on making her farm goldthorn and selling for a profit. Though he’s doubled his price on the AH and perhaps that’s too much and they won’t sell now. We’ll see!!
While he was off farming herbs I looked over to Drak’Thar server to make a toon to sometimes harass the other bloggers over there. I toyed with an undead hunter but I can’t get over their look, so I decided to make an orc: Troutorc. He’s a hunter and I’ll be honest, his little boar is adorable. I got to level 5 before midnight and decided to log back to Elgar transmute a Truegold and then go to bed, but then I thought…hmmm…what’s this Tol Barad people are always talking about?
Alliance controlled it, though I don’t know what that really means? And I got a bunch of quests which I will do. No flying there made it a little weird, but I managed and soon realized that unlike other times I can’t really quest here in Disc spec. Things took WAY too long to kill so I switched to shadow and did a few quests. They were okay, but I should come back and do more of them eventually because I like pets and I hear they have a seagull! Good times!
So all in all it was a weird night of all sorts of things happening. Tonight it should be a little more routine, some archaeology, some questing, and some dailies. Maybe even some scary PvP leveling with the Horde!
