Noor in '68

Noor hit level 68, just after the Hallow's End season ended. This is important because the first quests in Wrath of the Lich King start at level 68, so she'll have even more quests she can do soon.

Hey, did you check the new Darkmoon Faire decks yet? Forgot about them even though I was on PTR, but they are rather cheap compared to the epic decks, and would be interesting to Reinisch, Ahimsa etc :)

Brian Westley said...

I forgot about them, because I think they may have been soulbound at one point. But they reward XP! I don't know if they're repeatable, I'll see if either Reinisch or Noor can try it out.

Hmm, I just tried a few combinations available at the AH:

Reinisch bought two Rogue decks (level 10); both gave him 25 XP, so you get XP each time. AH didn't have a Mages deck, which is level 30 and should give him something reasonable. Thottbot say 825 XP, which is good.

Noor got a Swords deck (level 20, 50 XP) and a Demons deck (level 40, 140 XP), which is the highest level of these kinds of cards.

140 XP isn't much; I would need to get 90 decks (450 cards, more or less) to equal the XP for one Strange Engine Part...

Oh, and the decks weren't soulbound in beta, they needed inscription to be used. That requirement was removed at some point.

I'm excited about trying these out. Ahimsah wagered 600 gold experimenting with one of the old epic decks. No xp, and now she has an epic item that she will never use but keeps in a penny pouch in the bank.
She tried that at level 16 and had collected two different decks; the second one she did not turn in but sold and made a large enough profit to cover the expense of buying both of them.
After that, she started collecting individual cards and compiling them into decks to make money, which was pretty lucrative. Unfortunately though, the release date for WOTLK was announced just after she completed a portals deck, which then immediately lost a few hundred gold in value, lost more value when the PTR opened, and even more when inscription went live. At this point, she'll probably just save it until she turns 60 and use it since the card it rewards can be used by a pacifist.

So, it would be nice if Ahimsah could actually gain something from the introduction of scribes...

Hey Ahimsah, saves me a in-game letter...

If these decks are the usual 1/10th XP at gray, the Demon decks at level 40 should give 1400 XP each; but that would still take 53 decks to get to level 41...
