1 – In BG’s
He was grieving about giving up – and saying that our DPS was too low. I checked the damage metres, he was down the bottom but had done over 100k damage – I think I was on 300k and I was chasing flags and what not. On the board he looked like he was dpsing – which warranted my comment about him being so low – I felt bad telling a healer to “heal more” I should have said – complain less heal more, but I didn’t so it came across quite snarky.
and I wasn’t surprised when he never responded to my response to him calling me an idiot. ( notice I didn’t deny it. I have the gear, I know what Im doing, I have the kills and honor to prove it. In pvp I don’t need validation from someone else – so his idiot comment wasn’t taken as offence. It didn’t matter. His attitude did because I don’t like people who don’t try – or afk in Bgs. I will not carry your honor points.
2. On Alts
Level 18 – almost 19 Ele Shammie called Pretty. she was one of my alts I had an non main server which I got to play some when the servers had those issues last week – she kept leveling, and I set her up a bank Alt – planning on being self sufficient enough to buy her mounts and stuff. So without actually having to farm – She now has over 30 gold – and that is with spending some silver on things to making leveling a little more comfortable. Mining and Herbing – and selling lowbie greens.
3. On Books
I went to my Favourite Fantasy Bookshop thinking I would pick up a copy of Arthas for some reading. Until I saw the price tag of $50 Aus Dollars. Yes its a hard back – so I would expect to pay a little more, but not $50
On Amazon its $16.50 US so I did an exchange check and at AUD1 = USD 0.7963
|AUD 20.72 = USD 16.50|
So that’s a 30$ Aus Upmark. The shop I go to to buy my books is very reasonable – and have been known to pass on all doller exchange savings on to the customers, as they are a specialty store. So who is making the most profit from this?
Is it worth Paying $50 Aus for – nope sorry.. I have paid $56 oz for a Author I love ( more then once) but I will wait until Arthas comes in paperback because be it the Oz arm of our publishers or someone in that chain is trying to make more of a buck then they should.
