Blackfallow Ink Still Tradeable in 5.0.4

Power Word: Gold [rss twitter] • As noted by Blizzard, the 5.0.4 ink traders appear to require Ink of Dreams as payment in the purchase window when in actuality you can still purchase inks with Blackfallow Ink. While not totally unexpected this change took a few of us by surprise. In all of our own advice/reporting about the potential … Read Full Post


Engineering Pets - Part 2 - Yetis & Toads

Auction House Addict [rss twitter] • The Tranquil Mechanical Yeti & the Lifelike Mechanical Toad - two very different creatures in many ways & two that I cannot make myself yet! Having a master list of materials is very useful though - I am buying the less common materials cheaply whenever I see them on the Auction House so once I have the plans … Read Full Post


MOP First weeks - the patch that dropped

Foo's WoW Musings [rss]Foo's WoW Musings [rss] • One thing I didn't expect was that you could create your 11th character now; before you have upgraded to MOP. Well, starting today; there is a new rush of alts. Not as many as there will be come September, but definitely some. (So many monks; so many pandas - most of them panda monks) … Read Full Post

Auction House Sorting: A Whole New Game

Clockwork Riot [rss twitter] • Some sellers, particularly in glyphs, may have noticed they were getting some strange sales. Even if there were countless glyphs cheaper than yours people would sometimes buy your higher priced one. Why? Blizzard messed up their Auction House sorting with the patch and right now, contrary to … Read Full Post


MoP Beta Files: Leveling Zen Tailoring

Kaliope's Crafting Blog [rss twitter] • The only thing you need to level Tailoring is cloth. Lots and lots of cloth. There are no extra materials required for this profession if all you plan to make is the basic items. The only other material used at all is Spirit of Harmony. I have to say this change on the elemental side is certainly streamlining … Read Full Post


Preparation for Mists of Pandaria - First night after the patch

Markets For Gold [rss twitter] • I went straight to my trainer to learn all the recipes. I crafted the new glyphs – but not the Monk glyphs. Is anyone buying Monk glyphs?Demand for glyphs rose and good sales were made. But as i suspected the demandwas not abnormally high – certainly not another glyphmas. I was still making good sales … Read Full Post


Patch 5.0.4 and New Glyphs

Swishco Ventures [rss twitter] • As suspected, the Ink Trader no longer trades for Blackfallow Ink, instead demanding the new Ink of Dreams (which is unobtainable until Mists launches). Second, as was suspected, glyphs that changed but kept the same item ID were changed to the new glyph. More importantly, though, there are several new glyphs available … Read Full Post

WoWflation August 2012 – Watch out…prices spike!

WoWMidas [rss] • Haven’t seen a price spike like this in a long time. Up 30%-40%. Note also that prices have tripled since October 2010, a month and change prior to Cata (just around the last Wrath patch). Now would be a good time to note the categories that have given huge returns. See anything? … Read Full Post


What do Auctioneers bring to the game?

Markets For Gold [rss twitter] • A fair question, i don’t suspect the developers foresaw the rise of this breed of player at the outset. But i greatly suspect it is in their thinking now when they consider what to do with the professions in the game. On my server there are 3 or 4 of us who “own” the glyph market. i don’t see any other … Read Full Post

If these … Read Full Post


MOP Profession firsts

Foo's WoW Musings [rss] • Are you considering achieving a realm profession first? Apart from vanity, there are good reasons to do so; some may recall me mentioning Wek at the end of Wrath and the start of Cataclysm. He achieved realm first Alchemist. His elixirs were much in demand, and more than paid … Read Full Post


Battle Pet Update

Phat Lewts' [rss twitter] • As you may remember from my previous post or elsewhere, pets were originally slated to be mailed back to you caged if you had any duplicates. This has been changed. Instead, for MoP launch, the limit of 500 pets total is going to be lifted as well as the 3x per pet limit. So on pets that are not unique you will be able … Read Full Post

MOP Addons

Foo's WoW Musings [rss] • How will you survive when your addons break during the changeover? One of them will break. It will most likely be when either the initial patch launches, but might be when MOP is released. It will be the addon you consider most important … Read Full Post
