Apr 2nd 2012 3:01PM This isn't quite the same as that. The zone design in Jade Forest is nowhere near as linear as any of the zones in Cataclysm -- so the "main" storyline is actually not too terribly long. I got through the whole thing in a couple of hours, and that was reading all the quests and figuring out what was going on. (Keep in mind, this does not count the time spent doing all the side quests I found here and there, which easily tacked another few hours onto the experience. Jade Forest is huge.)
But the entire concept of the dungeon itself literally does not make sense unless you've completed the main storyline of Jade Forest. It just doesn't. However -- really the solution to this problem is to simply tune the dungeon for level 86. You don't ding 86 until you're done with a large chunk of the entire zone anyway.
Apr 2nd 2012 2:40PM Nah, he's just on there for the beta -- they'll usually put in placeholder vendors here and there for people so they can make sure they're properly glyphed/enchanted/whatever before testing dungeons. He's definitely not a permanent fixture!

Apr 1st 2012 1:57AM It doesn't show you questgivers on the map per se; it shows you areas of the main map where there are quests you haven't completed yet. So for instance, I had completed just about everything in my log (I thought), but when I checked my map, I saw a question mark waaaay down at the other end of the zone, indicating I hadn't explored that zone and there were quests I could complete over there.
So it doesn't pinpoint "HEY THERE IS A QUEST GIVER IN THIS PRECISE SPOT", it's more like "Hey, you missed this area, and there are quests here you didn't do!" Or at least that's what it seemed like to me. Very handy!

Mar 22nd 2012 11:58PM Nope! Just knowing what sets are popular and checking the AH prices. I don't usually do anything with gold farming, I'll AH things every now and again but never with any seriousness like the people that play the AH game. I've been playing this game a REALLY long time, so I've got a pretty good idea of what pieces people are drawn towards. Heck I probably could have put half of the pieces I AH'd up for far more gold and sold them just as quickly - but I didn't really NEED to sit there with piles of gold or anything.

Until next Sunday.
