Quick thought, the new gold sink that I’ve discovered is repair bills. I wonder who is the biggest contributor to the pain?
Well the wow stats site would normally tell us, but it appears to be missing some name data. My hunch is that new 3.1 bosses and items are the things missing.
After the past 3-4 days pug’ing runs I’m depressed. The one run that did finished cost 27g in repairs and only a few badges because we had to skip a boss. The rest were worse, which means we were wiping all over the place, and didn’t even finish. Nagrand heroic puggers are at least 20% horrid, and by that I mean that most groups I see have at least 1 guy who should not be there.
So, here is a new tactic. A PuG Swearjar. Rather than get angry and rave in guild-chat (because I have a blog for that), I’ll put a $1 into a jar and save for something nice.
This way there is a little positive light on every bad event. Each wipe, unnecessary death, group break-up, or otherwise bad even involving a pug will help me accumulate some play money. I could have a new widget soon, and if it continues this way for months; probably a plasma TV.
We used to have a pug channel on my old server for known good players, and something like that would be very handy. Anyone out there on Nagrand?
