Farming Scryer Rep
...or "hay! I found a use for [item]Figurine of the Colossus[/item]
Very simple and I suppose a prot pally could pull this off too. Set down on top of the Black Temple here all those emo shirtless Blood Elves are sparring. Throw on your best mitigation gear, swap in some + block rating items you thought were useless but kept anyway, and pull as many as you can. Back them into a corner and set up in def stance.
It takes a long time but I cheated. I dusted off mt [item]Petrified Lichen Guard[/item] and slapped a Felsteel shield spike on it. I also used Thunderfury. Spam TC and cleave and let them beat themselves to death on the shield. The proc on the shield ticks for 54 with 5 applications stacked. The spike deals ~30 damage per block. I only took damage while rounding them up, some would get a shot in technically behind me.
Once I got them into a corner, I spammed TC, took an afk to make a sammich, TC'd/Cleaved some more then looted. I was pulling an average of 10-12 and as many as 15 from time to time and as long as they don't get behind you, you mitigate virtually all the incoming damage. I tried it first in battle stance actually trying to hurt them but defensive stance with a crummy old shield with a spike is cleaner.
For about an hour and a half's work while answering questions, rearranging my UI, cybering with a hawt drood chick, looking up stuff on Atlasloot, gossiping on guild drama....
12 stacks of Netherweave
62 Sunfury Signets
1 Arcane Tome
10 grey armor pieces
lol, food...more than I started with
I'm not Scryer but both my lvl 70 alts are and need rep. The cloth all went to my wife's noob priest-tailor.
Not only is it productive but its highly amusing. Any class can go mine like crazy. This might not be quite as money making as some endeavors but it is something you can do simply BECAUSE you are a well geared tank.
WARNING: Your shield takes alot of durability damage. It will probably need repair for every 150-200 emo blood elves you slaughter. Carry a spare. Also, the only thing that slows you down is the respawn rate but its really not that bad.
your hat may be nice, but I have the little white tank top that says Legendary right across my boobs. I win. (or more correctly, H wins)
