I am so jazzed right now! So here's the story (beware I'm easily excited). I was getting a little bored with WoW lately and so I have been tooling around on an RP server for fun. I rolled a priest and figured I'd see what I could do with one character only. I have no money, no bags, etc...
I knew one of the first things I would need is a wand. Specifically the level 5 wand that Enchanters make. Since Stormwind is a poor substitute for Diagon Alley, I kept going to the Auction House and none would be available. And the few times there was one, I didn't have enough money.
So I took up mining and skinning and I've been slowly eeking together a silver here or there. A LOT of rabbits died at my hand, thank you very much. And mining has been really tough at such a low level. My plan pretty much consisted of luck, guts and a whole lot of grabbing my pick and some ore and running for my life from the Defias. (They have this snap kick now, did you know this?)
Finally I had a few silver at the same time that a wand was up for sale. Jackpot! I bought it.
Now, I know this is weak RP or whatever but I figured what I'd do is send an email to the seller and thank him for putting it up and at a reasonable price.
Look what I got in return!
Me <<<<-- Jazzed.
