Dec 15th 2011 3:40AM Simple reason for it. Tier/PVP pieces.
These are class and/or spec specific so for every piece of equivalent blue gear there are god knows how many purples.
Currently there are 13 tiers. That's a lot or purples where there are no no blues.

I have just got Inscription up to Northrend levels and am struggling to get any Book of Glyph Mastery. I am level 72 and have not seen a single one yet. I looked on the AH and they are going for 800g+ each! I did a bit more research and I discovered that they are still only dropping from WotLK content meaning there is very little coming into the game. Now I am worried I will never be able to get all the recipes as I won't be in WotLK content for long and if one does drop whilst dungeoning, the price will ensure everyone will ninja it, despite not having inscription. Do you know if Blizzard have any intention of "fixing" this?
May 4th 2010 9:34AM I agree it's a pain in the bottom, especially for squishie characters.
Anyway I managed it.
AB - Easy, just run like the wind to the gold mine (quietest). If you miss it, loads of chances throughout.
AV - As above but trickier as only 4 things per team. I'd go for the furthest away as most people go for the close ones.
WSG - Pain in the neck if you are a caster. When you see the flag carrier about to die run close and spam right click.
EotS - As above you need luck if you are a caster. I waited until the flag was being fought over away from the spawn then went and camped the flag spawn. as soon as it was placed and respawned I grabbed it. I got hassle but Howl of Terror sent them fleeing and I was able to make the last few yards unscathed for the achievement.
It is mostly luck unfortunately. Helps if you are in the upper levels of your bracket too.
Apr 15th 2010 5:59PM I always wanted a My Little Pony when I was young, but I never got one. The fact I was a boy probably had something to do with it! So please make my childhood dream come true and let me have a pony of my own!
