I want more people to read these articles. They could have some really cool effects on the market.For example, if lots of people try to follow the advice from this article, those Saronite Shufflers are going to be making a lot more dough.And when someone realizes this, Saronite prices will jump. People may start to devote more time looking at the Saronite market than something else like glyphs, and then less competition with glyphs can mean more money for scribes. Then when the Saronite isn't selling anymore because prices are too high, the entire system reverses and restarts.Of course the above situation will probably not be very noticeable on a large server, but I always find it really interesting when reading this column how much I don't realize straight away about the WoW economy. It's actually really simple, as long as you are willing to look carefully at sales, willing to do a little research and maybe even a little math, and willing to (if you're really going to "min-max" your profits) download time-saving addons.

Day to day these articles will have little impact I think. Its not like someone will level JC from scratch at this point and gain access to these recipes given the huge time sink required. Same with inscription, or alchemy (well less so).More important are the in-game fixes, for example allowing you to buy arctic fur from 10 HBL, or the frozen orb vendor, these had huge changes. And most important: Gold farmers. I love these guys, they dump tons of raw materials on the market which I then swoop up when there is a need. Everyone wins. I get supply, my customers get cheaper products, and some dude gets gold, and another dude in china gets US currency, which he can use to better his life.

@RobSpeaking of in-game fixes, did anyone else notice the change to listing fees for glyphs? Glyphs now cost 1 silver each to list, up from the previous trivial few copper. This may not sound like a huge change, but if you're a high volume glyph seller and listing in the thousands every day, it will add up.Did I miss seeing this in the patch notes? If I did, I apologize in advance for being unobservant, stupid, etc.
