I'm usually chock full of ideas to write about. Today, not a whole lot. That leaves you with what may turn out to be a drier than usual post.
Firstly, I installed the RatingBuster addon. Fantastic stuff. Had to play with it for a little while, but I'm liking how it illustrates to me the impact that +agi will have on what seems to be armor, crit percentage, attack power, and dodge? Is that true (or maybe I'm confused). Then wouldn't everybody just love +agi? Maybe they do, but I've really only read (a bit) about what hunters like. Same is true for other stats too, RatingBuster is a nice visual tool to help you learn how different item bonuses impact your overall character. Thanks to Someone for pointing that guy out to me.
The only other thing on my mind (besides wanting to get home and keep grinding and questing my way to 67), is a nagging feeling that I consistently dump items that might actually be useful to me in someway.
The first time I really started to get this feeling was in Zangarmarsh, when I was coming across lots of unidentified plant parts and glowcap mushrooms. Not knowing any better, I would gather these items, and noticing that the Auctioneer estimate of its value was pretty nice, I would just sell them on AH, usually garnering a nice profit.
Shortly after that, I came across the repeatable quest for Cenarion Expedition rep for turning in those plant parts. Ohhhh, so that's what they're for. Made some adjustment, and started turning those puppies in for rep, until I think it maxed out at friendly or honored or some such. Then it looks like those items are now useless to me.
Then I noticed that on a blog, the author was mentioning some venom sacs whose exact name escapes me, but I get them in Terokkar Forest pretty regularly when trying to farm for spider silks that look to be pretty valuable, I'm assuming they're part of a recipe or something. But that's the silks, back to the venom sacs. When spiders drop them, I forget if they're grey or white quality, but either way, they don't seem to have any exceptional value according to Auctioneer, so I dump them at a vendor. And recently on a blog, I saw someone mention them, seeming to indicate that they're useful for rep with some faction or other.
So I guess I need to thottbot everything? That's going to make running around a bit harder to keep my bags empty, since those are easy to dump now. Then again, with the new multi-attachments to emails, I suppose that keeping the bags empty wont be that hard, but still a little bit of a nervous feeling that I might be throwing away useful stuff at any given point in time.
