I was informed today that there are 27 days left until Spring. Personally, it can take it’s time as I am enjoying the winter we’ve gotten…but that’s another discussion another day. Wednesday night I began an arduous process -one that really should’ve started when I came back. However, at that time there was just too much excitement and “ok, let’s get back into it!” Even if I knew I should’ve done it then. Yup, cleaning up the bags and banks.
That’s Tum’s current stock at the moment (ignore the slim gold total). I didn’t even get a chance to go through it but looking now I can see some stuff that’s headed for the guild bank, some that’s headed to my personal guild bank, a few vendor items…and Void Storage, though he doesn’t have much room there either. Plus I see about a half dozen Tier pieces that haven’t been claimed. Yeesh.
I really don’t mind the work, as I do like being organized. But the thing is, it’s not just one or two characters. I have twenty one at the moment. The good news is there are a few lowbies in there that don’t take long. I’ve gotten some of those completed, but that leaves a good many left yet. Even a glutton for punishment such as myself doesn’t want to spend all that time in a row just organizing, selling, and deleting (seriously, where did all the stuff you can’t vendor come from???).
So obviously the bigger question is why I’m sharing what essentially boils down to a “QQ” post, right? Well what I happen to be doing applies to more than just my own spring cleaning. Yes, you can apply it to anyone who comes back to the game after a hiatus. Let’s face facts, the longer you’re gone away the greater chance you’re holding on to something more or less useless. But it isn’t just that. There’s an expansion coming. Not today, not tomorrow, perhaps not even this spring. But it is on the way and one of the things you’ll want to do ahead of time is make sure most of your bags are empty and everything else is in order when you do whatever it is we’ll have to do as we get transported back in time. So while things are quiet content wise, why not look after that now?
