Ask Gauss

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you are having or had a great weekend. Sundays to me are always hit or miss. If I get to sleep in and it turns out to be a nice day then I am normally all happy because regardless how my weekend went it was a good weekend, but if I get up early and it is horrible weather outside no matter how my weekend went it was awful and the worst weekend I have ever had. Anyways, I have no idea why I said that but I did so live with it. Where was I, oh yeah. Sunday is when we do something called Ask Gauss the day where I answer questions that have been sent to me throughout the week I think you all might be interested in seeing me answer. Out of principle I am not going to tell you that if you want to send a question there is a link on the top right of the page or you could send me an email, because at this point you should know the drill by now. So I am just going to get right to the questions.

I know you have made a bunch of gold through all the time you have played this game, do you ever plan on sharing your ideas?

I think there has been a few times where I have thrown out little hints and tips or things like that. In truth though this isn't a gold blog or a blog that is used to increase your dps/hps/tps. This is a blog that is about WoW and my experiences in it. So yes I might throw out there some things I have done to make some gold, but I don't think I will ever make a post straight out there about it. There are hundreds of blogs out there who are dedicated to help you make gold. The fact of the matter is I would probably be just restating what many of these great blogs have already said. If you are interested I have a link to a few of them in my blogroll and you should check them out if you looking for a well written thought out post that can help you. Instead of a Gauss type rant on what to do. As I am sure many of you enjoy my rants, but not all the time. So check them out, and then if you have specific questions feel free to email me something.

Guild Challenges. What are you thinking after looking at them?

Honestly? I am pretty disappointed. These I understand should be there and it is a great way to help guilds gain XP and make money. But a challenge? I don't see running heroics, winning a battleground or killing one boss a challenge. Well maybe for some guilds this is the case, but for your normal everyday guild everyone will be able to do this, which to me this isn't a real challenge. When I heard about this I was happy that these would be in the game to increase XP Gains and guild funds, but I was hoping for something along the lines of. No one dying on a boss, every spell is interrupted, X number of quests done in a set time frame, Completing an instance in a time limit. You know things like that. I am all for those things increasing your XP or guild bank funds. So here is me hoping that they add to the feature to make it something which is actually a challenge and not something that everyone will be and can be doing.

Have you asked Blizzard lately about getting you a statue as tribute?

No, but I think this is a great idea. I wonder where they should put it.

There we go that is it for this week. Hope you all got what you wanted out of this wall of text. Next Week's Reader post is simple, I want to know if you could come up with a guild challenge what would it be? As always you have until Thursday evening to get your submissions in. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.


  1. Put it in the centre of the valley of strength

  2. I agree the challenges could be much better.
