The Rogue Finally Made It

I started levelling my Rogue right near the beginning of SAN coming into existence, and yesterday afternoon she finally hit 80. It’s taken me a lot longer than previous characters because I’ve also been trying to complete a few goals on my Bucket List, which is going really well and there are only a couple of achievements left that I haven’t finished by now, and also because I did it without heirlooms which sucked a fair bit by the time she reached Outlands. She hit level 80 already with 42 Emblems of Triumph and has since taken part in a few heroic runs with the lovely people of Single Abstract Noun. It’s fun!

It’s taken me 3 days to get exalted with the Sons of Hodir, which I’m damn glad about because that’s a big grind I didn’t want to have to do. They really have increased the rate you gain reputation with them now. I’m also working on Ebon Blade and the Tournament dailies too. While reading around, trying to learn a few things about the Rogue class so that I’m not completely clueless, I found an awesome Rogue blog, PVE Rogues, which is full of helpful guides, it’s really helped me a lot.

Another thing, I don’t suppose you remember me wanting to see how much gold I could make while levelling a new character with no outside help? The idea that eventually failed because I couldn’t resist the lure of heirlooms and gold from my other characters but knew that starting on a new server would have got me nowhere. Well, this is basically the same thing. By the time I was level 77, I could afford Cold Weather and epic flying skill. Right now, I have around 14k gold. This has been with minor outside help from the SAN guild bank, but mostly from selling things on the auction house while I levelled. So there’s the result of that little experiment, you can quite easily make enough gold to get by while you level.

  1. Glad to hear the blog is helping you out ^_^ I love it when I can be helpful to people so it makes me really happy when I get positive feedback like this.

    I really wish I could make that much gold though XD I need to read some gold making guides. but I’m just tooo busy to be bothered :P

    1. Ohh it’s a lot easier to make gold when you have professions to do it with! If the mats are less cost than the finished product, then it’s probably worth crafting and putting up for a 1c undercut ^^

      All depends on what you have, but I try to read Just My Two Copper when he updates, short, quick gold tips are perfect. :)

  2. Congrats on hitting 80 on the rogue!

    I use the AH a bit – mainly I’ve made money by selling cut gems and the odd things. Most of the “normal” techniques haven’t worked for me lately since my server has some insane prices on stuff suddenly. (Saronite ore being up in 18+ gold per stack, used to be 11-12, for example.)

    That’s impressive hitting 17k on that rogue while leveling though. I can’t be other than awed :)

  3. Seeing how much gold people make using the AH always makes me sorry I can’t stand trying to use it – it just bores me to TEARS. If only I had a friend who I could mail potentially auctionable things to, who would auction or vendor it (depending on what would get more money), and then send me most of the proceeds. 10% fee is generous for doing that, right? XD

    Now to find a friend who’ll, y’know, DO this for me… hmmm….

    1. Haha, I almost offered to do that for a friend after seeing his personal guild bank one time. Absolutely FULL of stuff he never used and could have made him a decent amount of gold :p
