Looking back, there were several things I could have done better:
- Post 48 hours of every glyph at 60g on Monday night just in case. (I didnt think it was going live but many others did and said so)
- Practice using the Web auction house so I was familiar
- run the final upgrade concurrently on two PC's.
- Have a large enough stockpile of inks
- Posted many glyphs - concentrating on classes with large changes - especially DK
- Crafted glyphs early so I did not have to when the patch hit
- Had a stockpile of inks - about 80 stacks of different types, and another 50 stacks of herbs
- Thought about recovery strategies
- Had a complete backup of my warcraft folder
- Used the Web AH to post glyphs
- Did my reading on addons so I was prepared with a QA replacement (APM), and had a manual strategy in place.
I also created the new glyphs types, bemoaning how small my ink piles now seem.
Tonight I am going to post without auto fallback on all toons, then re-post on toons 2&3 as I have time.
I also noticed that some glyphs are already being sold for less than the new cost. This should be unsustainable, and a non-inscriptionist guildy (Wek) bought some for flipping.
All in all, I could have done better. But for someone who could not even get on, 16k gold is OK.
