So this weekend, I realized I was gold capped and quite a ways from getting to Exalted with another faction to dump some of the money on mounts (and with still a couple zones worth of quests to finish).
So I decided to go find Dealer Rashaad in Netherstorm to dump my 10g on a pet. I’ve got to say, hoofing it all the way there really did feel like I was going WAY out. Good news is that I got enough flight points to link the whole journey.
From Cape of Stranglethorn, I can now fly to Blasted Lands with a bit of a treacherous sprint through the portal and then fly straight to Stormspire in Netherstorm.
The bad news is that when I finally made it, my gear was ALL red and I dumped all my money on the 1 pet. That was Friday night. I didn’t play much Sat or Sun other than to log in and do a cooking and fishing daily (each day), to get enough dough to repair my armor.
I currently have my hearth in Shattrath (which has a portal straight to Orgrimmar), which will probably change when I finish each of the Orgrimmar fishing and cooking dailies.
NOTE: It costs 30.6 silver to fly from Shattrath to Stormspire. You need to have that much in vendorable junk to get yourself back to the 10g cap once you’ve flown up there.
