Chess Pieces Taking The Field

I have played chess all my life.    Chess is one of those games that stays with you mentally and changes the way that you view life in general.   Whether it is the small maniacal voice in my head that says everyone is a chess piece.  Or viewing life as who takes the field and what strategies need to be in place to be at an optimum level for life.

Your alternate toons are very similar to how good chess players view the field of battle on the board.  Your main toons end up being your King and Queen.  Your alternate crafters are often your bishops and rooks and even some of your players end up being placed in the space of pawns.

Any good chess player will tell you that you have to be looking 3-5 moves ahead as you are moving your pieces.  Planning and executing your strategy puts you in the mind set to allow you to win the game in the end.  

The Gold Goblin view of winning is that your goals are accomplished.  Even if your goals are simply to have enough gold to be able to repair or buy an item that you want.  Goals become your end game as you prepare another toon to take the field of crafting battle.

In the game of Gold Goblin chess there are also sacrifices to put yourself into a better position.   Sometimes you just do not have the time to place all of your auctions to sell.   That sacrifice of possible sales becomes more precious as you look at what will sell for the most profit and what will have to sit in the bank for another day.  

Time becomes just as important as planning.  When you have reached level 90 and start your daily grinds of reputation and rewards for your mains.  Obtaining valor points and items to get you geared up for raiding with friends or Looking for Raid groups.   Each move on the chess board becoming that much more important to not waste your time or resources for fools errands.

So look at what your next move is going to be.  Who will be the next profession to be at max level.   Do you take the slow route and level with easier to acquire resources or burn all of your more valuable assets to obtain access to more valuable

A Gold Goblin is always placing their pieces on the field to put themselves at the best strategic position they can.   To obtain more gold, to finish up their goals and to enjoy the game of World of Warcraft.

Good Luck and Good Hunting
