I am reaching a point where I can say that I unabashedly love Bloodsail Buccaneers and the players who call it home. As someone who traditionally rolls characters on Roleplaying Servers but doesn’t actually roleplay at all in game… it can occasionally put me in an awkward space. However there are moments when role-players make the entire world a better place with impromptu zone events. Enter the Goldblood Caravan a roleplaying guild that focuses on being a trading caravan that rolls into a town and sets up shop offering goods to players and bartering for raw resources.
What this meant in practice is that they offered really cheap bags, weapons and armor in trade for a smattering of whatever raw resources that players happened to have. Got a stack of linen? Awesome here is some gear for you. You a miner and gathered up some ore? Awesome here is some gear for you. I have an addon that lets me see what role characters are set to in a given guild and they have roles based on this them as well. One of the players was the Caravan leader, another a bodyguard, and then another couple something like artisan. I am so on board with this being an active presence on our server and will be interested to see how this shifts as we all level.
As far as the game goes I moved my way out to Desolace last night and started working on the Centaur tribal quests. Before logging for the night I managed to get friendly with Clan Gelkis and complete the 15 Centaur Ears quest. I am not exactly sure why but I have a soft spot in my heart for Desolace. I find it weirdly peaceful and I think I liked it back in Vanilla because I was a skinner… and there were so many things to skin. It would be a major challenge but that axe I picked up in Razorfen Kraul seems to really be helping me whittle through the mobs.
The only negative of the zone is that everything is super spread out. I could in theory move to Stranglethorn Vale and have a much faster leveling experience. The problem there however is that I have done STV so many times as an Alliance player and am not super looking forward to going back and doing those quests. I mean the Nessingway quests are worth a ton of experience and just involve a ton of directed killing… which tend to be my favorite style of quests. However I do want to finish the Gelkis clan stuff before they start to drop in experience. Also last night I managed to get a couple of Mageweave that I sent to Grace for eventual bags.
I’ve still yet to pug anything, because I have not really had to. That is the benefit of being a tank in a world where being a tank is always going to be in need. I felt bad last night because Tam and Eli were trying to make a Gnomeregan run happen last night. The problem with that however is it was starting around 8:30 my time and I figure as big as Gnomer is, it would be at a minimum a two hour run. With me being sickly right now I really need not to stay up super late, and as a result I declined. I was up later than I should have been Monday night and while I don’t think it actually made me sicker, it definitely was probably not a thing I should have done for healing purposes.
Timezones are the worst, and have been a constant problem since a significant chunk of my player group moved to the west. The two hour difference makes a bigger deal now that I am trying really hard to head to bed around 9:30 to begin my normal winding down process. Generally speaking I head to bed around 9:30/10 and then fiddle around on my tablet for another thirty minutes to an hour until I fall asleep. The wind down period really seems to help the quality of my sleep because it gives my brain time to shut down rather than laying down and feeling pressured to sleep quickly because 5 am is only “a few hours” away. Having a more structured plan towards sleep seems to have reduced my incidence of insomnia, which also makes my life better.
