I think it’s time we discussed the consequences your incessant demands have on our relationship. I know I’m not blameless here. My frustration is partially my own fault as a result of deleting that old level 80 rogue, who just so happened to have her leatherworking skills up to Cataclysm levels. Yes, I’m taking responsibility, but only some responsibility – maybe about a quarter of the total hatred here. I lay the rest of our problems entirely at your doorstep.
Have you ever considered how impulsive and illogical you are, Leatherworking? According to you, five pieces of leather and some gimpy thread is enough to make a pair of pants, but if I want a belt instead, I’d have to get my hands on thirteen pieces of leather, more gimpy thread, some random potion that alchemists hardly ever make anymore and that you’ll never find on a low/medium population server anyway, and a couple of hides that can only be cured with salt dropped from mobs in level 40 dungeons that I haven’t actually been to in weeks.
There are guides out there which help me understand your capriciousness, thus enabling me to avoid the most tediously random of your recipes in my quest to know you better. But words of wisdom from the internet cannot solve all, Leatherworking. There’s an even deeper underlying problem, and that’s the total number of mats you require in the first place. You are a horribly selfish, greedy, total bleeping nightmare in this regard.
For example (and this is only one example, mind you), you need 410 pieces of thick leather. SERIOUSLY, LEATHERWORKING? ARE YOU FREAKING BONKERS? There’s no efficient way to meet your insane demands. It’s not like I can buy it – it’s old stuff and my rogue is on a medium population server, so inevitably some asshat’s already purchased what there is on the market and raised the price beyond my means. Even with the guild perk, I still get one or maybe two pieces of leather from most of the mobs I skin. I’ve had to resort to stalking around quest hubs and skinning the mobs other people leave behind. Do you know how embarrassing this is, Leatherworking? It’s like, “HI GUYS, LEVEL 80 HERE, HANGING OUT IN A LEVEL 40ISH ZONE LALALALA DON’T MIND ME” and people look at you funny. They stop looting their mobs, so you can’t skin them.
I refuse to pay for a boosted character just to ignore you. We’ve got to work something out, Leatherworking. Something that happens more often than Darkmoon’s profession quests.
