Old Friends, Frugal and Fickle

Although I tell myself I set my home in Classic to Theramore because of convenience, I’m pretty sure that’s not the main reason. Classic is about the only place in life that I can erase the bad times and go back to the good. I like hanging out with Jaina and Pained. Theramore is intact, nothing bad has happened there and Jaina has not changed. It’s a happier time for both of us I think.

I was intent on being able to buy a mount the minute I reached level 40. I was so frugal a level 20 Murloc could kill my level 35 self because I didn’t buy many spells. I see HOWEVER that Kitwynn spent what at the time was a lot on her pet cat. Apparently that was more important than staying alive to her.

In spite of reckless purchases we finally made it, whew. What a relief. I don’t remember not being able to ride bothering me but back then because I didn’t know what I was missing, this time I did. So happy to have a mount to ride back and forth in Booty Bay.

I pre-purchased Shadowlands and that came with a boost. Okay, I don’t know if anyone else is like this but the decision on who got it was so hard. I wanted to boost my Dark Iron Warlock just because. I felt guilty even thinking about it. I glanced around furtively as though Cat and the others knew what I was thinking. It was just wrong.

I decided it should go to either Sasche my main Horde character or Zorakar the Hunter my very first character back in 2006. My husband doesn’t play games, I’m not sure why I asked him what I should do. I really didn’t think he’d take it seriously. He looked at me like I was bonkers to even suggest there was a contest. The Hunter it must be, so there she is.

I feel kind of bad, I told Cat I’d be right back when Classic got here and nope, didn’t do it. And now I’ve been distracted by trying to figure out Huntering as I have no idea how anymore. I’ve just been running from new shiny to new shiny. Sorry Cat. We’ll go mount hunting soon, I promise. I just need to get Zor a bow and then Kitwynn needs a …

  1. Haha. Yes, that new mount smell. 😛 Enjoy Classic. I haven’t really been inclined to revisit. I’m looking forward to using my boost too.

    • Yeah, I didn’t think I’d stay that long in Classic but I have. I think part of it is that I have NEVER run into so many nice people before. Maybe I’m on a mean server but wow, these Classic people are nice.

  2. You’re making me look bad, having not bothered to get a mount and I’m almost to L48. 😉

    Well, I did get the skill, but I’ve been spending money on keeping up my poisons so I can keep up in instances. I need to get back to Tanaris and start fishing again, methinks.

    • And yes, I’ve been using Theramore as a base, because it is the most obviously changed place in Cataclysm. (Darkshore and Wetlands would tie for second, I think.)

    • LOL, I didn’t know it would bother me as much. Not having a mount in Vanilla didn’t matter much to me but this time it did!

      Yes, I have grouped for elite quests as long as there are a few people as I know I’m not pulling my weight as most of my skills are level 1 or 2 not 3 or 4. Figure I’ll catch up now but it will take a while.

      Yeah, it was hard to leave Darkshore and Wetlands as they were more of my favorites. Tanaris is another fun zone. It must be those Goblins!
