    Throwing Down The Gauntlet

    I need a challenge to keep me out of trouble until Cataclysm starts. I've got a couple things that I'm working on, none too serious. So, I thought perhaps we could throw out random challenges. Ideally, they would focus back on making gold and perhaps even turn into posts back in the Gold Making forums. Ultimately, I just need something fun and engaging to give me some direction between now and Cataclysm.

    What got me thinking about this was the old forum topic (which I see has been restarted on the new forums) - Get That Achievement!. I'm proposing something slightly different. Here we throw out challenges and anyone is welcome to accept the challenge and later post about their results.

    So, without further adieu, here's my challenge: Find a good place to 'farm' [achievement]Got My Mind On My Money[/achievement]. So, while ZG bosses are fairly easy and drop 20g+, it can't be farmed consistently so that won't work.

    I challenge you to retain the

    That should keep you busy for the next few weeks.

    I'm seriously considering doing that myself because it actually looks easy enough to do with the right amount of focus.

    If you need the 25k achievement, I suggest doing Argent Tourney dailies everyday (the money bags count towards it) and farming Heroic Outlands instances. The mobs drop a healthy amount of cash for the level. AQ20 is another good place to run.

    Honestly, rolling a twink is the funnest thing ever, especially if you have the cash to spend on solid gear. I'm working on a 19 rogue right now and Ambush will be critting for 1.2k soon enough (that's 2-3 shot on most players).

    I did the Tourney dailies but that is capped at 40g per day (and having just finished grinding out all the mounts I'm not eager to go back). I could do raid bosses, but that also is inconsistent. I have a couple other ideas I'm going to try but I was looking for more.

    2-3 shot? Backstabbing with a crit used to one shot most people that joined 19s. That's the whole reason they broke twinks, because people like me would walk in there with 1800 hit points full buffed and wreck with my Shadowfang and Cruel Barb, and be impossible to take down unless I got ganged up on or came across a dirty hunter. The best twink rogue I ever made cost me like 3k to make back in the day.

    But yeah, that's what you want to look into, twinks are still amazingly fun to build.

    Is [achievement]The Loremaster[/achievement] an option for you? Or did you already do so?

    I already did Loremaster.

    To clarify, I was hoping to make this post more open-ended challenges that anyone could pick up and hopefully create a post about their ideas and/or experience. So, if I may, I'll convert the previous posts into challenges that others can pick up (feel free to rebuke and revise if you don't like my interpretations).

    1. Find ways to 'farm' [achievement]Got My Mind On My Money[/achievement].
    2. Go get .
    3. Create a level 19 twink. Do a class writeup and how to get BiS items for that class (no recycling old content, must be a new twink).
    4. Complete [achievement]The Loremaster[/achievement].

    That's a serious gauntlet. That's a Bugs-Bunny-throw-a-brick-into-an-iron-glove sized gauntlet.

    I really like this thread. It's definitely putting me back in the "go do something interesting" spirit. Thanks!
