Feb 17th 2011 6:18PM I've picked up two of the enchants and one of the meta gem cuts, simply because the only people on my server with the missing recipes don't get the economics of it, and see the recipes as an instant fortune. I kid you not, we've had the same three (now four) AGI enchant recipes in our AH for almost a week, with the prices dropping by about 1K a day. Never mind the fact that the prices are still three times what ANY of the new enchants are going for, they're so focused on undercutting each other by small amounts that they haven't noticed that no one has actually sold the new recipes for what they're asking.
The same is true for the meta gem cuts. Despite the fact that there's enough competition for all three cuts in the AH to drive the prices down to about 500-600G over the cost of the uncut metagem, these people still think that we're going to be able to pay 30K gold now and make a profit out of it. The recipe drops for someone new, and they post it just slightly below what's already there, not realizing that what's there has been there for days and isn't going anywhere at that price.
Jan 10th 2011 6:07PM I've managed to rise to officer, or even guild leader, in every guild I've ever been in, despite not having great leadership skills, just because I'm a helpful person that does stick it out till the end.
Well, the first guild I ever joined in WoW, and had been GL of for three years, fell apart over this summer. It was a pretty sad thing, but I just let go, because we had a good run, and trying to keep it going would have tacked more bad memories onto what was essentially a good time.
So now, I'm in a new guild (a few guildies followed me, and one or two even jumped first) as just a regular person, not leadership or anything, and I'm loving it. Sure, it's not the same group of people, but at least I found a similar group. And when something does go wrong, I don't feel like I have to make it all better.
My original intention was to leave a few of my toons in the old guild to keep in touch and only move my active toons over to the new one, but to be honest, there's only one person that's even close to active in the old guild and he's on my friends list, so I've decided to move all of them.
I won't say that there are no regrets, but overall, I've gone back to enjoying the game rather than dreading logging in just to see who has left this time.
