Hip to be Square

Boring is the new Rock'n'Roll!

As I told you last week, I've sorted out a bankalt presence in Pandaria. He's been settling in this week, selling PvP and 496 items with varying degrees of success, and has begun his daily commute between the Shrine and the BMAH.

No, really, he commutes.

You see them on the freeway, it don't look like a lot of fun...

The deal is simple: log on, check the main AH and then pop on a kite and head to the BMAH. Of course, there's nothing of real value there right now, but that's not the point. 5.3 is already being downloaded, so it won't be long. His time will soon be here.

Almost 20k FOR A TABARD? :O

If you've not yet got your Brawler's Guild invite, especially with the changes coming in 5.3, this has got to be the moment to go snag one. In fact, if I'd been smart, I'd be buying mine now and not stressing/obsessing about having one as soon as the the thing went live. Yes, you live and learn. There's a Battered Hilt here too, which at 10k might well be worth a flip if your server is that way inclined. This is the most items I've seen on the BMAH for a while, and the quietest it has been on a daily commute, but I know that this won't last.

But don't you try to fight it, an idea whose time has come...

I'll admit at this point the Bankalt Faff (TM) has become one of the most enjoyable parts of the daily login (which should in itself make the Game Devs sit up and take notice, but that's a post for another day) but a lot of that has to do with the fact that it's just me out here in the fields. That outlook may change in 5.3, but that all depends on what the patch really will bring, and it is already clear that a lot of things we've seen datamined won't make it into the final product. Whatever happens however, at least Huey Lewis is making some cash in this whole affair...
