Aug 2nd 2011 10:57AM This x100. You can come up with all sorts of economic models to determine value, but cost in this case follows only one rule, supply and demand.
I've paid 300g/orb for a 359 plate chest, 300g/orb for a 359 leather chest, and 400g/orb for a new 365 2H. Someone wanted to charge me 500g/orb and I said no thanks. If you ask for more than what everyone else is charging, value doesn't matter. You simply won't make the sale.
May 11th 2009 1:17PM Tecka - Your suggestion is in essence to make the mace easier to get. That is not the intent for this item. It is Legendary. If all healers, huge questline or not, were all able to start working on this item, then it needs to just be any other epic. A nice epic, but not legendary.
I think Blizz made the difficulty in obtaining this item correct.
Feb 3rd 2009 1:12PM I normally wouldn't bother with a comment on something like this, but as a WoW palyer and SF Bay Area native, this story disappoints on several levels.
First, we get yet another half-assed attempt on a story about WoW and its players that ends up getting presented more as scetch-comedy than an actual story, and second, the rest of the country gets a great example of why the Bay Area local news reporting is so embarassing.
"Next up, our ditzy, no-talent walking-pair-of-tits (awesome!) reporter Bambi (with an i) will tell you about the computer game her boyfriend spends all day playing while she's at work. And despite her obvious lack of effort at even the basic levels of research and preparation for this story, we hope you'll stay tuned!"
Dec 12th 2008 2:44PM What Belthazar said. Most of BM hunter damage comes from steady shot/auto shot. We really don't weave as many shots in as MM does. With that said, haste only affects auto shot. Steady shot is on GCD. No amount of haste is going to speed that up.
Haste helps with BM DPS, but only marginally. Given a choice of gear that boosts crit or something that boosts haste, BM hunter should choose the crit.
