I haven't been updating a lot lately, sorry! I've been doing a lot of rep grinding. Lots and lots of rep grinding. And dying in Zul'Gurub. Lots of dying in Zul'Gurub.

I finally finished up Honor Hold, which means I'm hopping back out of the primal elements market. I am fine with this, because I really do not need to run Heroic: Shattered Halls any more. Ever.

So now I'm grinding out Steamwheedle cartel rep

There are basically three main places to grind Steamwheedle Cartel rep (assuming you don't want to tank your Bloodsail rep for whatever reason), each with their own benefits and drawbacks.

1. Pictured above, grinding the same three Venture Co. Evacuees on a boat in Venture Bay, Grizzly Hills over and over and over again for 3 rep a piece. They give no Booty Bay rep once you're Revered, but will give rep for the other three Steamwheedle factions to exalted. They're tightly packed melee mobs, so I am all over this. I'm getting a decent amount of Frostweave Cloth and Wrath-level greens here as well, so it's not terrible from a gold-making perspective.

2. Southsea Pirates in Tanaris. More spread out, but lower level. Some casters mixed in, and the melee mobs have a weird Abomination-like death grip thing, so less easy to AoE grind. Drop less gold, less valuable cloth, and less valuable disenchanting material. But they give Booty Bay rep, I think they also continue to give Gadgetzan rep into Revered, although I'm not 100% on this, and I believe there's a chance to drop the beacon for the robotic chicken escort quest starter from these mobs. If you're into that sort of thing.

3. Venture Co. employees in Stranglethorn Vale. Spread the hell out. All caster mobs. Regular drops are nothing of consequence. No Booty Bay rep (same as the Evacuees in 1), but you've got a chance to loot some STV zone drop items like the Razzashi Hatchling or Hyacinth Macaw.

I am not super dedicated, so I'm grinding in Venture Bay and I have NO REGRETS apart from deciding I'm working on these reps in the first place. That decision was possible a terrible mistake.

In other, more exciting news, my enchanter is finally to 425 skill. You know what that means...

Get down with your bad self, little worgen priest. Get down.

That's right. Awwww yeah, it's time to get on the proper Obsidium Shuffle train. Updates on that in the future.

Chocolate Cookies are still selling well. I've been selling a lot of fairly low profit margin, but still profitable, Hardened Elementium Bar. I also swam my mage down to Booty Bay, and am actually doing okay for myself selling Alliance vendor pets to the Horde. (And, slightly depressingly, Alliance.) I haven't really started in on cooking recipes apart from the Roasted Moongraze Tenderloin yet, but I should.

I'm also starting to consider taking a day or two out of my Life-to-Air transmute schedule to transmute Fire in order to stock up for 4.2. We shall see.
