Gearing Alts by Accident

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple — Jenny Joseph

Apologies to Jenny Joseph, but it’s been one of those, err– months? Years?

I’ve forgotten how long I’ve been running around re-learning How Not To Die. Which is appropriate, given the settings.

But I’m getting better at Not Dying, working out how to fit all the fun of Feral Feral’ing into fewer buttons (and more macros), and slowly… veeeeery slowly gearing up.

WoW seems to be subtly hinting that I need to play my alts.

Where ‘subtle’ means 75% of the build-a-bearcat gear drops aren’t leather.

On the on hand, it is a good way to lure me into looking over all the alts I’ve left to twiddle their thumbs, but on the other– I just want to wear purple goldarnit! With so many people running around, I’ve had more luck finding chests than I have killing anything, so the grind is that much slower.

I still need the chest, boots, helm and belt– which means I’m only 50% done.

Now if I only had enough high levels alts to use all the cloth, mail, and plate by-products…. *mutters*
