spendthrift Wara

I have the worst time saving money in WoW. I suspect it's the combination of gold being like Monopoly money and the fact that I like to buy cool, potentially useless stuff. Take last night for example...

I had managed to save up just over 600g through farming and running a bunch of quests. Not bad, right? Certainly as much money as I have ever had in my grubby little hooves at any one point in time. Rather than saving that money or even using it to buy mats for my Windhawk garb, I blow most of it on [Pattern: Windscale Hood] at the AH. The hood itself ([Windscale Hood]) isn't even that much of an upgrade over the [Druidic Helmet of Second Sight] that I'm hoping to get in the next couple of days (one more Gorefiend quest to do). But it's epic. And I can make it myself. Alas, Wara. Bind your money to your hand.

In other news, I'm getting to the point where my quest log is full of Dungeon and Group quests which is rather bittersweet. I love being able to run around and do stuff for myself on my own schedule (and many of the "group" quests I've been able to solo). Now I need to start relying more heavily on others. It's a good thing I'm in a kick-ass guild, eh? :-D

Grats on the pattern. I have much of the same problem as you: money burns a hole in my pocket. I get over a thousand, and for a brief moment thoughts of epic flight cross my mind. Then I blow it all on a phat purp I can flip for more money. Then 3 more of them show up on the AH! Bah! Hold and wait Delos, hold and wait...

I know that part of my problem is that epic flight is *so* expensive that I feel like I'll never get there, so why not spend the money now? One of these days I'll break down and make a bank toon like everybody else. Until then, though, Windscale Hoods for everybody!
