More Death Knight mining

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

After motivating myself to spend some more time as a space cadet I disappointed myself a little when I procrastinated slightly before ending up loading World of Warcraft. It just seems like I have so much to achieve in World of Warcraft at the moment. I would like ...

Mining in Westfall with a Death Knight

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

My Death Knight, Gnomesblight, has been running around Westfall recently, and she's not the only one. Despite being granted rank 270 in all skills a Death Knight starts with, including weapon skills and first aid, this does not include any professions you choose once free from the Lich King's ...

New Frontiers: Raw Materials

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

My agent asks me to mine some Green Arisite, a variant of the Gneiss mineral, for a new research project. There a catch in that the ore can only generally be found in low-sec systems. I ponder this for a minute, as going in to a low-sec system ...

Weekend warcrafting

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Continuing her questing in Hellfire Peninsula in the Outlands Sapphire finds out just how starving some Hellboars are when even the merest sniff of meat sends a dozen of them hurtling in her direction at once. It is a little irritating, because it means a path has to be ...

I knew EVE Online was a player vs. player (PvP) game when I started, and I knew that I probably wouldn't like the PvP aspects of the game if they were anything like my previous unfettered PvP experiences. Specifically, experiences where the only PvP people engage in are the ...

Cruising to mine

Friday, August 8th, 2008

I had read somewhere previously about finding ores rarer than normally found in a system existing in deadspace whilst on missions, and had found some omber of my own recently. In that instance, I took my Caracal home to Jita, dusted off my mining Bantam frigate and went back ...

Technological Secrets

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

My agent in EVE Online gives me an important level two mission. Codenamed Technological Secrets I am to find and capture a rebel captain, which means fighting off a few waves of his mercenaries first. I am going to encounter Minmatar ships again, so I keep the Ladar ...

Back in space

Monday, July 7th, 2008

I resisted temptation no longer and subscribed to EVE Online over the weekend, after having enjoyed the two-week trial period. Even though I am already playing World of Warcraft and City of Villains I was drawn to being a space cadet and the skill-based system that EVE Online offers. ...
