Did not realize that it has been a week since I last posted on the Long, Strange blog. Thinking about everything that has happened in the past week, I can see why I have not gotten back to a post until today.
In some ways, the Darkmoon Faire really did take me away from my usual routine in WoW. I have to admit that I am still learning about this game, even after 5 years of playing it. The Darkmoon Faire has been in the game since its introduction in Patch 1.6 back on July 2005. Although I had paid a visit to the Faire several times over the past few years, I never properly researched what the Faire was about.
I have to say, I am truly glad I took some time to research the Darkmoon Faire. I decided to look into the Darkmoon Faire because of the large number of trade chat barkers looking to trade cards. After doing some research, I decided to scrounge through my current inventory to make various Darkmoon Cards. I was able to create the Darkmoon Card: Hurricane, a couple of level 70 and 80 decks, plus several left over cards. I listed many of these on the auction house throughout the week that the Darkmoon Faire was visiting Goldshire. At the end of this week, I came away with 34,211 gold just from what I had in my inventories. This was gold in addition to the other gold making activities that I have each week. Overall, this was the boost I needed to energize my gold income that seemed to have stalled the previous 2 weeks.
This endeavor shows me that I should continually be open to new market opportunites. As an aside, I really need to look in my inventory more often to see what treasures I have collected.
Thank you for rescuing me from the Darkmoon Faire.
Time to go do some much needed exercise...
