Mage port fees are going way up.I'm pretty good at detecting these things.

I wish.Increased demand versus an unlimited supply means prices go DOWN, not up. If portals were limited by a non-trivial cooldown, you'd have a point.

Heh. Not quite, though I wish it were true - an infinite supply + increased demand means prices will go DOWN, not up. If ports had a non-trivial CD, then maybe.

ugh. I really, really hate this comment system. Sorry about the DP.

Unfortunately, supply in this case is governed by the willingness of mages to make portals for others. The mages have a monopoly.

I think Xid has it right. Increased demand will allow mages to raise the minimum price for a portal.Here's an example. In TBC I was a 380 JC (draenei bonus) with most recipes. I'd see constant requests in general or trade for a JC. I would only reply if the promised tip was enough to make me consider it worth doing this instead of what I felt like doing.Mages are probably the same (never took one past 10 mind you). They're in game doing what they want to do. Along comes a "WTB Portal" Will he take it? Depends on whether the buyer makes it worth his while.
