Sep 13th 2007 1:02PM I like this column in general, and I know you primarily play restoration but i feel like totem talk is far more resto geared than overall shaman. I mean you did your full analysis of resto talents article...where are the ones for enhancement and elemental?
Aug 22nd 2007 9:26AM I'll never understand why the battlegroups aren't based on server type. Why are there cross realms between PvP and PvE servers?
Blizz won't let you transfer from PvE to PvP because leveling and gearing is different but they WILL let BGs be between the two?
It doesn't make sense.
Aug 9th 2007 1:42PM I have to say having leveled numerous Horde the first time I got an Alliance to 40 I wanted to cry. The issue really isn't more midlevel content for everyone, just for the alliance. Horde have gobs more quests in Hinterlands and Feralas, Dustwallow march has several Horde quests, and even STV is better for the Horde. Badlands has more Horde quests (and a better town) and so does Swamp of Sorrows.
Worst of all the many of the quests Alliance can do in the 40-50 are Neutral! Searing Gorge is a nessecity to Alliance, for Horde its just another stop for some extra XP.
They helped this a bit by adding a few new Draeni quest spots to Ashenvale (forest Song) and Swamp of Sorrows but it still hurts real bad to go from 40-50 as alliance.
Jul 19th 2007 8:40AM It is a risk reward thing. On my first character ever when I was trying to get my mount I did so with herbs. Steelbloom sold for around 5g a stack at that point and it was easy to farm. One day I got on and decided steelbloom should sell for more, I bought every stack there was and marked it up to 8g a stack. And people bought it...I made a good bit of gold until one day when I got on and found that the bottom had fallen out of the steelbloom market, there must have been thirty stacks priced at 3g a piece...I bought them all and put them back up for my 8g price. Unfortunately, all the farmers were working faster than me, and every time I came back on there were stacks for 3g a piece...I couldn't be on enough in a day to keep them off. Worse people stopped buying steelbloom. Eventually I just ended up with my profits gone and a bank full of steelbloom. I managed to break even and probably made a small profit but it took months to sell off all that steelbloom.
So market manipulation is fine, but its risky. As for the JC guy...well the other jewel crafters should get to together and buy his stuff and sell it for the real price, then they'd make profit on his work and keep the standard price going.
As for the 2g person...lowbies will list things higher because they compare them to current prices (2g). Eventually buying everything will be more expensive and the venture will become unprofitable. Then undercutting will occur and prices will readjust to market demand.
