BMAH and Other Annoyances

bmahThe stupid BMAH has pushed me over the edge. You sadistic bastards! HEY! HEY! Don’t look away when I’m talking to you!  Hey, Goya! What kind of unfair … um … Black Market are you running here. I’ve had it with you. No wonder you have to have that big, old bodyguard considering your unfair business practices. Geez.

I have never successfully bid on anything except for a Brawler’s Guild invite after it was old news. Not once, because every single time I bid the auction ends sometime after midnight eastern time. I never, ever see auctions ending in the afternoon or early evening. Since I get up at 4:30 every morning I’m not staying up past midnight. My nerdraging now is NOTHING compared to what I would be like on three or so hours sleep. Wouldn’t be pretty. Couldn’t that damn woman stagger the auctions so each time zone would have a chance?

So I get all worked up over, once again, not getting what I wanted to buy. What? I don’t know, it’s Cat so it was a pet or a mount for sure. So anyway, I’m in a ranty mood and see Cat has 4,747 Lesser Charms of Good Fortune. She pet battles a lot, trading them in at 50 a week isn’t even putting a dent in them. Since she acquired all these from pet battles wouldn’t it be nice if she could use them on something useful and maybe pet battle related?

I mean these things are as ubiquitous as … well … dog poop is around here. I wish I could find something useful to do with them. Yes, and dog poop too.

relicLet’s look in Warlock’s bank. Oh, that’s sweet. She doesn’t need Relics of Guo-Lai but she’s such an optimist she’s can’t get rid of them. She must think they’ll be changed to BoA at some point so others can use them. I would tell her not to hold her breath but then she’s got Unending Breath so yeah, I guess she can. And OMG! She’s got a sweet tooth! Look at all that candy she has squirreled away! Who would have thought Warlock Cim was hoarding candy. Not me.

Okay … my rant is slowly losing steam. It made me think of a word I haven’t heard in years, maybe it’s out of fashion or it’s regional. My father used to use it. Gripe, gripe, gripe. It’s a pretty good word. I’m done griping. Gripe, gripe, gripe. Nope, nope nope. Okay, I’m just getting silly now which is marginally better than ranty, but enough. I do wonder if they still say gripe in Minnesota where he was from. I know Madame Goya didn’t seem to have a clue when I said it to her … along with … well … a few other words.

You know I reread that and I feel somewhat bad doing all that complaining. I need to say something good to balance it out. Hmm … what do I appreciate … I know! Ihgaluk Crag! That’s all good! Okay, now I can go back to being lazy and enjoying all the entries in Tycertank’s #WoWscreenshotaday Day.

  1. Look at all that junk! And all that candy will just go bad if she doesn’t eat it. Madam Goya has never let me get anything. I don’t like her.

  2. It’s amazing what junk magnets your bank/bags can be. I’ve got cooking ingredients that my people levelled past ages ago cluttering up the place. Ridiculous.

    • I know! I have all kinds of Wrath era food saved because an alt might need it which is silly as my little Monk is wearing heirlooms and doesn’t need food buffs to get by but will I get rid of it? Nope, lol.

  3. I wish there was another use for Lesser Charm of Good Fortune i have a lot from pet battles too and like you I just turn those 50 in a week for gold.

    I’m lucky i’m on a slow server and have actually got to purchase a couple items off the BMAH. I don’t think we have many pet, mount or vanity item collectors where I’m at. I’ve managed to get some trading card loot from there I would never be able to get otherwise.

    • What’s so funny is that my server is pretty dead but it seems people are still watching the BMAH for deals. That’s exactly what I was trying for because the trading card is too expensive irl. Maybe next time!

  4. I’ve bid a few times and won one thing so far but I’d love to see some other use for those lesser charms. I try to do my battles on my alts when I need to build up 50 for the next week.

    • I just wish I could be there at the end of the auction so I at least felt I battled for it, lol.

      I know, I feel bad knowing that a lot of people who raid would love to have an excess of charms and Cat who doesn’t need them has oodles from a non-raiding activity and nothing to do with them.

  5. Years ago, I became kind of an e-bay junkie. This is long before I stepped into foot in Azeroth. The combination of competitive shopping had me hooked for a while. I mostly bought hand-crafted charm bracelets, which I still treasure, and inspired me to make a few myself back in my steady jewelry making days. “Madame Goya, darling, you don’t know who you’re messing with with me – until you offer antique Cracker-jack charms, I am not interested. I said good day!”
