Mar 24th 2011 1:55PM A few years ago I played Puzzle Pirates, which has an elaborate economy using bid-ask pricing. Going into a marketplace you would find various commodities with a bunch of various sized lots listed at various asking prices, and also a bunch of offers of various sizes at different bid prices.
Going into a market as a buyer, you can make a bid which will be immediately filled to the extent available at the lowest available prices (if you bid higher than the current asking prices) or your bid will be added to the list of market bids that will be seen by sellers coming to the market. Selling works the same way. (Crafted items are handled differently, since they are usually custom made to order.)
I know WOW is bigger and has many more items available, but I still think something like this should be able to work, or at least have a separate bid/ask commodity market for raw materials that will be bought in bulk like ore/herbs/cloth/leather, and keep the existing AH for unique items like weapons/armor.
Oct 26th 2010 9:55AM Unfortunately, my leveI 80 rogue isn't "high enough level" to solo ZG bosses. I am lucky to survive the trash pulls if I am careful (^!@&*^! axe throwers). Maybe at level 90...
Oct 14th 2010 12:37PM Have the hardware requirements for WoW increased with this latest patch? I am getting almost unplayable lag (although it claims latency is fine) and 10fps. Is it server instability, too many people logged on to see new changes, or Blizz telling me to upgrade?
Oct 13th 2010 10:45AM Did talents for dual specialization reset? Haven't looked in game (was busy with AH the few minutes I was on) but I looked on the armory, and my primary talents are 0/0/0 but my secondary talents are listed as 3/18/11, including some talents that are flagged red because I don't actually have enough points in that tree to have those talents.
Oct 6th 2010 3:27PM Have you at Wowinsider/ICFTB thought about how to deal with the coming cap on guild size?
Sep 30th 2010 5:37PM Ugh. This was supposed to be way up at the top with the first comments. :(
Sep 30th 2010 5:36PM There have been specific blue posts saying that the Insane is not going away with Cataclysm. They may need to change the requirements somehow, depending on what things change with the expansion.
I hope to finish my title this weekend.
Sep 27th 2010 2:52PM A post on MMO-champion says this is currently 2175 justice points on the PTR, which is the equivalent of 791 emblems of frost/triumph (which matches other comments saying everything has its emblem price go up by x4). Assuming the prices stay the same, if you really want it now you need to buy it before the patch drops, or else wait until several months into Cataclysm when that may not seem like such a big cost. I've been thinking about this too, but I haven't decided yet if I want to use my frost emblems for something instead of downcoverting them to heroism.
Sep 24th 2010 5:05PM BTW, from from wowhead.com the "randomly" chosen tasks from Bodley may actually be fixed and depend on your class. I personally have only have one sample point, but my quests matched the ones labeled with my class there.
