Whilst I ponder other things, it has been noticed the role of mages in holidays. For the first holiday event EVER I have a max level mage! Which sort of poses a dilemma… how does that help me get my crew around Azeroth?
Easy! Second account!!! Make a toon on the second account a raid leader [so your toons aren’t automatically kicked from party], set them all in the same spot, turn off all your addons, have the mage toon pop a portal and then cycle through as quick as you can and have them hop through the portal – do all the quests at that location on all toons and rinse/repeat.
It also comes to mind that a lot of people take mages for granted and/or abuse the ones that exist. Mages seem to be becoming absent more and more on the server… almost as much as the rogues [they all went into hiding I think]. Whispers such as “port me now” and “gimme port” are exactly why. If you want to use a mage’s porting service and they AREN’T one of the ones adverting in trade, be kind to them [well be kind to those too, but you get my point here]. Most will be happy to port you somewhere if you ask nicely, and give them a tip. 1g is pretty standard but I’ve received as much as 10-20g for a single port. I’ve had people tell me that I owe them portals because portals are free. For those not in the know, portals use reagents and reagents do cost money, granted, not a whole lot. The sense of entitlement is worse than it was on my warlock regarding summons.
Mages can make your life a lot easier during this event, so be kind to them!!!
1. Be kind.
2. Ask, don’t assume.
3. Tip well.
In other news, all my toons have the Pilgrim title and pet! Woot!
