The Zen of Grinding
I have a routine for most mornings, as I drink my coffee and wake up, prior to getting ready for work. I grind.
My 70 hunter is the breadwinner for most of my other alts. Depending on what I need, she’ll do a circuit around Terrokar from Allerian Stronghold (hides/felscale, dampscale baskilisk eyes, blackened basilisk and warp burgers plus two to four green items for the AH), or Nagrand (clefthoof leather, roasted clefthoof, green items, motes of air and earth from the elementals, cloth from ogres) or Elemental Plateau if I’ve had insomnia and have gotten up really early. Sometimes I fish, mainly to get Golden Fishsticks so that I can make nice to healers.
It should be boring, but is not…you get into a rhythmn, especially on a character that doesn’t have a lot of downtime. There’s something quite peaceful in the repetitive actions, and although not very exciting, grinding is rewarding in its own way. Fishing is much the same, although I can only fish for short periods of time before becoming restless – I think mainly because you have to concentrate on the bobber. What do you think? Do you enjoy grinding, is it a necessary evil, or do you just buy everything on the AH?
