May 21st 2010 4:38PM "but Auctioneer tells you exactly what to do with every item (sell this, disenchant that, convert that, buy this) and then it gives you an exact price to set so that all you do is click "post, post, post" over and over. "
bullshit. Oh yes, it tells you. but you an't just blithly go and buy EVERYTHING it suggests is under priced and that you can resell. Thinks like enchanting mats tend to be overpriced by auctioneer's data (ie, auctioneer says it's priced 'just right' at 20s/per, yet realistically, it only goes for 20s/per about once a week when 3 people try to powerlevel enchanting all at once. Otherwise, you'll looking at 10s/per. 5s on a bad night. Gear? Gear's impossibly to move. But it saw someone list this level 12 dagger at 1000 gold once, you should buy this dagger at 3 gold and make MAX PROFIT! ... except no one will ever even buy it for 3 gold, except you. It's 'exact price' more often the not is more expensive then the lowest prices on the AH...
auctioneer is a GREAT tool. but you have to figure out how to USE it. Sure, buy those black diamonds. they're a good price. but auctioneer doesn't tell you to put them in the bank for 2 weeks while the price regulates back around so you can get a good price for them.
May 19th 2010 6:45AM .... three dollars?
How much did you spend on that big mac at munch or that starbucks this morning? How much did your friday night drinking cost you? how much does a pack of ciggies go for today?
3 bucks. I'd pay it. if I had a phone smart enough to use it.
May 19th 2010 6:00AM .... Though it amuses me, reading the comments, how many people are stuck on the idea of him playing a goblin. Really? People are more then just the roles they've played on television and movies.... it affects them, certaintly... but that doesn't make him a goblin. :P I'd bet they amuse him, and he might roll one for the sec of amusement, but I very seriously doubt the train of thought is "Cool! Now I can be Nog in WoW!"
but, then, y'know. that's just my thought XD
Also.. I too heard this all in a 'nog' voice XD
To make a more substancial comment past 'eeeee!!'... I really like this interview! One of my favorite characters, in one of my favorite shows... . with some awesome stories and some beautifully well spoken passion for the game. the 'magic realms' story made me go "aww.." and so did the STO disappointment.. but his stories about PVPing are awesome. :D
Thank you, Aron, for this fantastic interview. :) I'd extend an invite to my server (Garrosh-A), but truth told, the server kinda sucks... But, hey! I'm Celerys over there. :D (no, not the plant c_c)
May 19th 2010 3:51AM I... I just had a tremendous geekgasm. There are no... words... for how awesome this is XD
I mean, I KNOW, he's just another guy, he's just like you and me, he just happens to act, and happened to get a part in one of my favorite TV shows playing one of my favorite characters.... but... It still makes me squeal in joy.
That, and I LOVE the video with Patric Stewart talking about technology...
They're just people.. but.. eeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
