Cataclysm Launch, or "Where Will You Be?"

The day of Cataclysm, I'll be at work.

Yep.  I'll be schlepping eye charts to ye olde Opthamologists.  There's no "I" in Opthamology, after all.  Just glasses.

I've considered taking that day off.  Not so much to play the game as to make lots and lots of gold.

But when you think about it, I'd be passing up real money in order to get fake money.  Somehow, that doesn't seem to even out.

Game gold, for example, will not get me my dream house by next September.  Nor will it help me to actually buy the Cataclysm expansion.

I can set my auctions the night before, and if I'm really dedicated I can subscribe to the auction-from-your-smartphone service for that month.  Or I can ask Husband's Best Friend to keep up with my auctions for me.

It's cool, he owes me.  Less than he owes husband since I made HBF climb a steep hill to get home instead of taking the bus and therefore "almost killing him," but I think I have enough left over for this.

Yeah?  Yeah.


  1. I am taking off the day before, of, and after the release. I'm getting there early for the CE midnight release since NO ONE has any left. >.< And yes, make HBF keep up with your auctions because he owes me dinner.

  2. What are you planning to gouge players on?

  3. I've been saving up herbs, cloth, ore... everything you need to power-level professions on new toons.

    And opposite faction pets. :D

  4. The 7th of December? Why, that would be the second to last day for classes for me! I would have finals the following week.

    Yeah. I'm having it delivered on Release day. I will install in on my computer, and probably flounder for a day between work and studying for finals.

  5. I'm assuming herbs will be huge given the Alchemy dragon mount, so I'm doing the same. :D

  6. I'm a little scared of launch days anymore, so I'll set a bunch of auctions and not plan on being able to play until around 2pm the 8th, when they restart all severs for the fifth time.

  7. If I could have reserved a CE at Game Stop, I'd do the midnight thing there. Since they had already stopped taking CE pre-orders before they even officially started taking pre-orders, I'll just pick up my CE at Best Buy when it opens on 12/7.

    Seriously, as much as I hate giving business to Best Buy . . . when Wrath was released and sold out at every "good" game store in town, Best Buy must have still had 30 copies on the shelf.

  8. I'll be working too, most likely won't get really into cata until the weekend after. But since I'm a teacher, when winter break hits, I know where I'll be...
