Yaah, My Very First Wearable Epic: Epic Trinket!
Started 6 weeks ago and after that time I finally acquired my Very First Wearable Epic piece the Darkmoon Card: Vengeance. Located the Darkmoon Faerie just outside of Shattrath City and got my Trinket. Yeah I'm still 65 and I have to wait for 5 long levels to finally wear it after 6 weeks of trying to acquire it. I'm still not really playing WoW much right now, just logging in 30 min here and there. I first read about the Trinket over on Kaziel's Blog when he acquired his that's how I learned about it. Good to read other people's blog, you can learn stuff. Now I got mines and didn't do a single instance run for it, however I worked every bit to acquire it just as hard. Yeap I bought every single card one card at a time at a what I think was a good deal based on trended average price. And it was.
Cost me between 500-525g all in total due to my conservative spending habits buying the Furies Card on AH. I even traded a a few Furies card along the way buying and reselling cards on AH for profit. There is all kind of ways to make money in WoW. I made back over half the cost of what I spent to acquire the Darkmoon Card Furies set reselling them on AH when I say a fantastic deal to bid on. In such cases its good to be sitting on gold to make a worthwhile investment. Money well spent!

Acquiring the Furies Cards.
First time I ever saw one of these cards I missed acquiring on AH the Ace at 75g at a deal. Acquired the Ace first at 16og to start the deck a good deal to me and in time I found. Often its double that and its not all that rare either. The 2, 3, 4 Furies Card seem quite common in AH over time. I acquired them all for between 25-50g. Cards 5 & 6 was very hard to find and seem rare to spot in AH and based on my Auctioneer Scan just checking for whatever reason. Got the 5 for about 55g the hardest to find of all the cards on AH. Acquired the very rare 6 for 10g sell/buyout can you believe it! Immediately bought it on sight before I even finished thinking about it.
Card 7 cost me about 75g and though not rare to spot, seems as common as Card 8 which cost me about 90g the 2nd card I acquired. Took a lot of looking on AH often to spot all the cards. A worthwhile investment in Galo. Sometimes it just good to just be sitting on a bit of gold. Well I will get to wear it in 5 more levels, for now it sitting in the bank. In the end I never bought the cards just seeing them listed in AH. Thought about the prices of the cards in AH and said "No" to buying cards I saw listed many times at a high price in hope of a better price deal. Afterall I'm not in a hurry, can't wear it till 70 anyway. You may already be decked out in your Epics, for me its my very first wearable one and a worthwhile Trinket for a Protection Paladin and pre Kara.
