Sep 19th 2011 11:54PM Inorite? One of my saddest days in WoW was when I could finally afford that top-end weapon enchant for my shaman, but then I realized it hid my windfury...
Sep 10th 2011 12:15AM @Chance: "Considering that no other classes are penalized a wopping 7k dps from lack of procs" - replace procs with crits, and you have fire mages... Retadins are hardly the only spec to suffer the cruel hand of the RNG gods.
Complete aside- I love pallies and will never hate on them, but I really love how my iPhone tried to autocorrect retadin into retard... ;)
Aug 19th 2011 2:03AM When you're as influential as GC, a good portion of your job is giving advice and opinion; the trick is to realize that getting bugged and getting things done are two sides to the same coin...
Aug 9th 2011 12:40AM "From around the web" is relevant to my interests, as I am a collector of coma prisons myself.
Jul 14th 2011 2:21PM @Don - what valid argument are you talking about?
1.) Slippery Slope is commonly accepted as a fallacy. The primary reason behind this is the argument assumes that all future decisions are based solely on the outcome of previous decisions, and not on their own merit.
2.) Why do you assume your $15/mo adequately pays for an additional service? Do you have any information about the manner in which it was implemented, or how much it cost Blizzard in development, or how much it will cost in maintenance? Today, you can't group cross-realm, and you pay $15/mo. Tomorrow, you will be able to, and you think that should be free? So, basically, you want something for nothing?
Jun 29th 2011 1:05AM Bankstack works to some extent, but it does spazz out a lot more than before the patch, especially when it needs to stack and sort a whole lot of cut gems. I found myself having to abort and rerun several times to get everything clean after restocking on all my cuts Hope there's an update soon, I luuurv BankStack...
May 23rd 2011 11:39PM Surprised this is the first mention of Panda to support mass-milling; I don't know what I would do without it for prospecting. I also use it to restock cut gems, as it gives you a nice one-page view (after a fresh auctionator scan) of your stock, as well as what's currently profitable and worth cutting to restock.
However, I am looking to graduate to TSM for automating a bit more of my crafting and posting; any tips for setting up groups in a JC business? What characteristics do you group together? Sale volume/frequency? Profit margin? Profit per sale?
May 23rd 2011 11:31PM Maybe I misread it, but I think you guys just said the same thing. I know Basil is hardcore about this point, too, but on my server, people will definitely buy from the front page instead of sifting through the higher bid prices to find a lower buyout (and yes, enough people use the default interface to make a noticeable difference). I personally hate this part of the default AH interface (especially b/c it let's people gain an advantage by doing asshatish things like match your buyout with a lower bid price), but at this point, it's part of the game, I guess.
May 20th 2011 11:48PM I understand that by shuffling elementium, you can consider blues to be zero cost; however, they still have worth, which is what they'll sell for uncut. Regardless of what you believe your costs to be, everyone shares the same market value for a particular item. When you're selling cut gems for less than their uncut counterparts, you're either trying to force someone out of a market, or you're just dumb.
May 20th 2011 7:15PM This pricing strategy applies to pretty much all the tradeskills; I do the same thing with gem cutting (except the lifecycle goes ore > prospect > xmute > cut, and sometimes it's worth it to buy intermediate stages). I have only one problem: sometimes the campers are willing to sell below cost for periods of time... It's really frustrating; the only thing I can think is that they're in that special class of people that thinks mats are free if you farmed them yourself. Luckily, I'm into enough cuts that there's always something worth selling.
