Meet the Bloggers: Basil «Euripides» Berntsen


About the Bloggers introduces you to the people behind WoW Insider. You can find articles on more WI staffers in earlier [hide]About the Bloggers entries[/hide].

What do you do for WoW Insider?

I write [hide]Gold Capped[/hide]. I used to write Time is Money and Insider Trader as well, but then I decided to stop trying to categorize my thoughts and simply dump them all into Gold Capped and let my editors sort it out.

What’s your main?

I have exactly one level 85 character: [hide]my hunter[/hide]. I raid and PVP with him, as well as use him for my alchemy and blacksmithing businesses. I will continue to have one max-level character until all the jewelcrafting dailies my JC mule does dings him 85 without having set foot outside Stormwind.

I have way too much on my plate to actually take care of my alts. For one, I hate leveling. Once you’ve seen it once, doing it again doesn’t have enough reward to justify the time. Secondly, if I had more playtime to use, I’d use it to do more of what I already do. I could be doing 10-man extensions of my 25-man raid if I had another raid night per week, or I could do more than a rated BG now and then. Starting a second gear grind with another character isn’t something that’s on my radar.[hide]Continue reading Meet the Bloggers: Basil «Euripides» Berntsen[/hide]Filed under: [hide]About the Bloggers[/hide][hide]Meet the Bloggers: Basil «Euripides» Berntsen[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Wed, 20 Jul 2011 14:00:00 EST.
