What do you do to prepare for a new expansion
With Mists of Pandaria on the list of soon to be released games, it is time to start planning ahead. There are a few things I usually do to get ready for a midnight release.
1) Book the next day or 3, off work.
2) Clear out bank space for new shinies.
3) Create a couple of new toons to reserve the name of my new character(s).
4) Stock up on bags for the new character.
5) Stock up on mats to level a new profession.
The best way to prepare for an expansion or major patch is to get together with a bunch of people, friends or guildies, and pool your resources. Each of you picks something such as bags, mats, gear, pots and potions. Everyone builds up a stockpile and shortly before release, you trade with each other. You may want to even for a small guild with alts and us the guild bank as temporary storage for all the goodies you are hoarding.
In regards to your current toons, now is the time to get in all though last minute achievements you have been meaning to do. A few people around the blogoshere have even created bucket lists they want to complete before the end of the expansion.
