Insider Trader: Who keeps the shards? {WoW}

Mar 7th 2009 1:35PM "I will also say that I really don't think it's fair that people come into a dungeon and we tell them they have a right to anything into a dungeon."

Bad typo I meant tell them they do not* have a right to anything in a dungeon. xD

Insider Trader: Who keeps the shards? {WoW}

Mar 7th 2009 1:32PM Well I am kind of torn by the whole issue. As an enchanter, I have always sharded the gear and let everyone have a chance to a fair roll. However as of late I wonder just how fair this system really is.

I mean with the recent changes and the need for shards/crystals I feel a bit underhanded having spent so much money to level a skill to sometimes step into a run where I will need said shards/crystals to up my skill and walk away with nothing.

I know that sounds like QQ but let me just address a self defeating argument that I have seen and heard time and time again. Gatherers who are in dungeons really need to stop this argument that they "Deserve" the mats they get from nodes. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but the last time I checked most nodes aren't right inside the instance , so you need the rest of the group to clear that trash before you can even reach your precious node, so as you have been a pivotal part in downing that boss, we have also trudged it out clearing the trash so you can even get to that node of yours. Do us non gatherers now rightfully own a share of your spoils?

I like the idea of the group offering up a shard to the enchanter. I will also say that I really don't think it's fair that people come into a dungeon and we tell them they have a right to anything into a dungeon. Well rather then hide behind a mask of greed or not state that I'm an enchanter..... how about a roll off for the vendored trash and myself as the enchanter offering even a portion of the price of a shard or crystal.

Now I know it isn't the full cost of the shard, but the person winning the greed roll has walked away with more money then if she/he has been forced to vendor. I do not believe this is unfair, however this is something that needs to be addressed in an attempt to globalize some stable rule so that this isn't always so confusing on grouping.

Are disenchanters getting robbed by rolls? {WoW}

Feb 21st 2009 2:58PM How about this......

I'm an enchanter.... so for the people complaining about losing money from being able to vendor the blue, The enchanter takes the blue, gives the person who rolls greed the cost of the vendor item and then (enchanter) gets to keep the shard. That seems fair. I get shards to level my skill, you get the gold for the item. (But not the same amount as the shard I get, if you want that good deal, level the profession yourself ;)

Sold to the highest bidder, or is it? {WoW}

Jun 19th 2007 11:31AM The best AH implementation I have seen to date in a MMORPG is that of Final Fantasy. The seller lists a minimum price that the bidder cannot see (a reserve price) once the bidder bids that price or higher he gets the item.
One thing I feel is a downfall and failure of the AH is the pricing of the items. I for one will not place a lot of items on the AH because if they don't sell I am losing money. Or , who ever heard of the seller having to pay more in AH fee's then he will see in return when selling his good?!?!?! Flawed system, it needs tweaking.

AddOn Spotlight: WoW UI Updater {WoW}

May 26th 2007 11:51AM 31. Today my AVG Anti-Virus reported the WUU.EXE as a virus/trojan file.

"Trojan horse PSW.Generic4.KTX"

Initial indications are this is a false positive. Regardless I have moved this file to the Virus Vault.

Yes To confirm this post, I as well have encountered the same problem. Do not download or install this program until the problem has been confirmed. Can the person who blogged this program maybe contact the creator and see what's up please.
