Oct 11th 2011 10:18AM "Hybrids benefit by generally only having a single DPS spec that Blizzard focuses on balancing"
Warriors: 2 dps spec (arms, fury)
Deathknight: 2-3 dps spec (2h frost, 1h frost, unholy)
Shaman: 2 dps spec (enhance, elemental)
Druid: 2 dps spec (feral cat, balance)
Priest: 1 dps spec (shadow)
Paladin: 1 dps spec (ret)
The majority of hybrids have multiple dps specs. Only paladins and priests have a single dps spec, and ret paladin mechanics are in flux constantly between patches, so I would argue that hybrids suffer just as much as pure dps classes with regards to balancing.
Jun 3rd 2011 2:17PM Let's say a large number of people do what the article asks and stop buying gold. A lot of people, say 50% of all current gold buyers. Well, demand for gold just dropped by 50%. Gold prices will drop. Gold supply will also shrink, as it no longer is profitable for those with the highest overhead, such as the gold farming outlets that pay workers slave wages. The problem is that the outfits which essentially use actual slaves (prisoners) have lower overhead and are not effected. They will be the last to drop out of the gold supply equation due to the lowest overhead. The only effect from decreasing demand for gold is to move all supply to those working in slavery. In fact, as prices drop due to decrease in demand, they will likely try and increase supply to make up for lost revenue due to price decrease. Which doesn't bode well for the prison farmers.
I wish there was an easy answer to this but there isn't.
