The Queue: That one drop {WoW}

Apr 2nd 2012 11:28AM Are there multiple beta servers?? How could one server possibly handle close to a half-million people?

Gold Capped: Is prospecting still worth it? {WoW}

Aug 29th 2011 8:36PM You are leaving out one important use for the green gems: Transmuting into metas. I haven't played in a couple months now, but when I was actively shuffling, I'd turn just about all of my prospected greens into metas, cut and AH.

Creating 2 shadowspirits (Xmute proc aside) requires 3 of each color gem. So on average each 3 stacks of Obsidium would produce 2 gems plus procs (6 gems/stack x 3 stacks = 18 randomly selected gems). At that time the cut metas were easily going for 100g apiece, often much more. So if I could get a stack of ore for around 60g or less, profit!

I'd then hunt the AH for inexpensive Carnelians and transmute those into Infernos. That way, long term you aren't taking all the wheat among the green gems (Carnelian) and getting stuck with the chaff (zephyrite).

Gold Capped: 5 addons for profitable buying, selling and crafting {WoW}

Apr 18th 2011 10:03PM +1

That is the one thing that I am having trouble living without. It seems dumb to maintain this huge bloated addon for just this one feature, but I really like the "batch post" feature; for each item type I just have to click on the batch post, and with one command (and of course a bunch of confirmations) everything I want to sell is posted.

I use TSM (and formerly QA) for the stuff I post regularly, but for the miscellaneous crap I pick up here and there, Appraiser is so much easier...

WoW Rookie: How to learn mouse turning {WoW}

Apr 14th 2011 6:53PM This article glosses over the one major problem I have with move mouse/activity keys:

"Once I've got all the "big stuff" mapped out, I start setting modified keys. You can write macros and assign them to keyboard commands like Shift+2 or Ctrl+W."

Well how the hell do you press shift or control if your left hand is operating the hot key and your right hand is on the mouse? I use primarily the number keys and function to activate spells, and to say the least it's awkward to use a pinky to hold down shift/control/alt at the same time.

So what are people doing here?

Gold Capped: Competition in tailoring {WoW}

Apr 11th 2011 5:55PM On the addons topic:

Is there an addon that has a decent replacement for Auctioneer's Appraiser function? That's the only thing I find I would have trouble living without if I switched entirely to Auctionator and TSM.

Basically, I regularly come upon bits and pieces of items that I'd like to sell as easily as I can. Once I've sold it with Appraiser once (and set it to sell at "market" and to auto-post), all I have to do is go to Appraiser and click batch post, and I'm done. No TSM groups, no individual item posting.

Is there anything else out there that does that?

Ask the Devs round 3 UI questions answered {WoW}

Mar 28th 2011 4:12PM One tiny little quality of life UI change I'd like to see is the icon used in the mailbox for either scrolls or money. Expired scroll auctions use exactly the same graphic as a scroll full of gold from a successful sale, so I am constantly psyched out! It's trivial of course, but it's really annoying...

Gold Capped: Improving the default auction house interface {WoW}

Mar 24th 2011 1:28PM And gems. Looking to buy, say, Inferno Rubies to cut is a big pain when the uncut gems are all mixed in with the cut ones.

Mar 13th 2011 9:41PM Yeah, I've been grabbing feral stuff as quest rewards when there was nothing in the list of rewards that was an upgrade for the resto set. And I'm also grabbing the feral stuff that drops in dungeons that nobody in the party can use. But that's only gonna get me so far -- and probably not to ilvl 330 or whatever it needs to be.

In any case, I am glad to know that low-level stuff won't hold me back.

Mar 13th 2011 5:03PM Oh ok that's great to know. Thanks!

The Queue: Sad clown snowman otter {WoW}

Mar 13th 2011 3:20PM I am now leveling my Resto druid to 85. I decided for Cata to have a feral spec for solo questing, so I have two separate sets of gear.

I am concerned about what happens when I hit 85 and want to gear up for heroics. I'll obviously be focusing on the intellect gear as that is what my dungeon spec will be. But I'll still be carting around all this agility gear, and since I won't be making much effort to upgrade it (whatever I have will be fine for dailies and such), that set will lag behind in ilvls.

Do I understand correctly that the LFG system uses the average of *all* the gear in your bags to determine if you meet the minimum ilvl requirement for heroics? If so my janky feral set will keep me out of heroics long after I have a good enough healing set.

Is there any workaround for this? Thanks Queue!
