It seems amazing that Troutwort, the GM of Crits and Giggles, has finally gotten some playtime in Cataclysm. He did Mt. Hyjal, though I don’t think completely…maybe? I can’t remember, and then went on to Deepholm because he’ll need it.
Anyways, having a GM of the guild that is only neutral with the guild is a little embarrassing. Especially when the guild makes a lot of money completing dungeon and raid achievements and mucho cash through the Cash Flow guild perk. Basic donations to the guild have all but stopped since those implementations and we have more guild than ever. We never required people to give money to the guild bank, so it was just something people did to be nice, but now we don’t really need it and we’ve up the allowance of repairs from guild funds.
So back to the point, Troutwort, neutral with the guild and the guild has more than enough to get the 7th guild tab. So I felt obligated to level up to a point where I would get friendly with the guild. And I did just last night! So I took 9000g our of the bank and purchased the 7th tab.
It made a huge impact on the organization of the guild bank, which was LOOSELY organized prior mostly by tabs which contained either gear, crafting materials, or consumables. But now we’ve organized it further, breaking out tabs like herbalism/alchemy and giving gems and enchants their own tab since they were both scattered all over previously. We combined all gear to one tab instead of breaking out gear <80 and cataclysm gear. That saved lots of space too allowing us to break out some of the other profession things and keep them more organized with more space between them to give them all a cleaner look. It looks much better now. I wish the tabs were in a different order, but I did arrangement based on which stuff I’d have to move the least. It’s annoying to move things between tabs in the guild bank.
Troutwort is now level 83. He’s done just two dungeons I think, but managed to get the drake mount from Vortex Pinnacle, at least I think that’s what it’s called. His DPS is okay and only getting better now that he has a better weapon, what he does need though is better pets or at least a pet respec. His solo pet is still the bear but for DPS I use either the cat or wasp. I might need to look into some others. I suppose I better do some research on the pet families again, it’s been so long since I looked at pet information.
Also, I’m still running mostly marksman, I love it. He’s always been marksman, like ALWAYS and so it’s very fun. Mostly I used the pet as a meat shield, hence running solo with tenacity pets. When I do rarely go into BM spec, I use a ferocity pet. It’s good times. But as usual, Trout will mostly just round out my completion of classes and professions. Speaking of which, does leather seem really annoying to get in Cata?? Hyjal was mostly humanoids, as is deepholm, there are a few times I kill neutral deer or whatever to skin, but man, just seems like not as much is skinnable as I thought there might be. Oh well for now.
