5 not-so-simple ways Blizzard can fix the World of Warcraft Auction House {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 5:28PM Agreed. 1,3,4 are all good.

On 2 - If you're talking about server-wide type global, you should remember that Blizzard is trying to heat up the faction warfare. You're not going to want to easily trade with your opponents in such a situation, and imagine how embarrassing it would be to be kill by someone wearing gear with on it!
I'd be all for putting a "smuggler AH" or some such X-faction AH in each city, but remember, they take a larger cut, so low margin items at least would be less likely sold X-faction.

If you're talking truly global, all AH on every server combined, you'd have a nigh unmanageable number of listings. Even on my med. pop. server we get multiple people selling 100+ stacks of ore, now imagine thousands of those guys undercutting each other.
And looking at the listings? You'd have literally thousands to go through, even consolidated like with Auctionator. I know when I use it, it can take 15-30 seconds to scan a few hundred auctions and put up the results. I don't want to see how long it would take for a global AH!

On 5 - Other people have said things about this better than I can. It's just a bad idea.

Blood Pact: Styling your warlock in the next patch {WoW}

Aug 29th 2011 4:35PM Call me crazy, but the 213 T7 look is pretty awesome. Instead of crazy yellows and greens, we've got a good combination of browns and red. The design is even different, so it shows off the shape of the shoulder spikes better.

That said, I need to farm me some T2, T4, and T5. Already have all the wrath sets!

The OverAchiever: New achievements in patch 4.2 {WoW}

May 19th 2011 3:36PM One thing I was wondering is how many pet biscuits you actually get each time? 1? 100? a full stack of 250? No one seems to mention the number for some reason.

Patch 4.1: Blizzard explains new valor point mechanics {WoW}

Mar 18th 2011 7:24PM From the blue post:
"In 4.1, you'll receive 70 VP for the first seven random Cataclysm Heroic dungeons you complete each week. Similarly, you'll receive 140 VP for the first seven random Rise of the Zandalari Heroic dungeons"

It reads to me like there's a separate counter for each type of random heroic, so you should be able to mix and match as necessary to reach 980 VP.

Arcane Brilliance: A poor mage's guide to enchants {WoW}

Jan 22nd 2011 4:38PM Just a note on the helm enchant, it may be account bound, but it requires Revered rep *to use* as well as just buy. Plus since it makes anything you use it on soulbound, you can't exactly get revered on your rogue, then buy it for your mage.
