So with maintenance extended for EU players, I’d thought I’d share with you an unsavoury discussion last night 29.03.16. I decided to have a brief break from World of Warcraft for an hour or two and I thought I’d found solace in a World of Warcraft Facebook Page. My interest was narrowed down to a post I found regarding stocking up for Legion. As this is a very hot topic amongst many gold makers in the game at the moment, with Legion on the horizon, I thought this might be a very good chance to try and “speculate to accumulate” as they say or more so offer some advice.
Sadly, Facebook is always filled with drama and this was no different. What seemed like a person setting out their stool on what he was hoarding, he also asked what the readers were stocking. I being the reader, offered a detailed assumption on what I felt would be an excellent investment, leading up to the new expansion. However, it seems as much as you offer someone advice, advice that you’ve carefully thought through, given a very good argument for why you believe what you believe in, people will always persist on looking for the worst in someone and look at the negatives. I was genuinely offering some advice on pets and why I felt Cinder Pups and Left Sharks wouldn’t be a good investment, I even gave a detailed argument as to why, but the author of the post saw this to be negative. My previous post HERE outlines my advice on Stocking pets and mounts for Legion.
Now I will admit, in the first part of my comment, I declared I had amassed 25 million gold since Wrath of the Lich King. This wasn’t an attempt to boast, nor belittle the author. This was merely to prove, that I had experience in making gold from a very early time of the game and not purely from an expansion, that has practically handed us gold in Warlords of Draenor but proof of someone, making gold from one expansion to the next. Ask yourself, if you saw a blog post from someone offering advice on how to make gold, without informing you how well they’ve done themselves, compared to someone whose declared making over 25 million gold, who would you likely lean towards for advice? My declaration, was merely to offer reassurance. When you see Sheyrah’s Stream, what’s the first thing you see in her title? it’s the sheer fact she’s amassed well over 110 million gold right?! She’s not boasting, she’s made 110 million gold, she’s reassuring us, that she’s very good at what she does.
I’ve always believed helping others, a platform to help those who may need a little guidance, gain inspiration and belief, that they too can achieve their own goals. I’m certainly not a professional, like some of the bigger Twitch streams or gold making websites, so I may make mistakes along the way, some of these streams and websites make mistakes too. I will never charge or expect someone to pay me anything. This is a blog I created to write casually in my spare time, to offer tips that have served me well, in a bid to help you, you the reader make some gold that you may have thought wasn’t possible, but is actually achievable. I use my Twitter to post constant updates in game, of purchases or sales, to show what I’m buying/investing in, which you can do too, I also share what addons I use and have posted my TSM strings for you to import (if you wish).
I know Facebook probably isn’t the best place to have an in-depth discussion, as there’s an abundance of trolls or people hell bent on putting people down, but I was genuinely hoping, that someone may have seen my post who was actually in need of some advice that may have served them well, leading up to Legion. Needless to say, what potentially could have been a very good evening sharing tips for Legion, quickly turned into an evening of me continuously defending myself and my actions. My only hope is that someone else has seen my information and taken something from it, so it wasn’t a total waste of time.
I wont be posting any names, or the group in question, this post isn’t about picking people out and vindicating them. This post today is about my determination to help others if they need it, continue building what looks like a great community of players that are looking to make gold in Warcraft and purchase things, that one day looked out of arms reach, but are far more achievable then you first thought.
Thanks for reading!
