What I am doing now

You are most likely here because you enjoy crafting. I have been reading up on some of the WoW issues regarding gold making, which make me realize that WoW is not the game for me.

If you want to play a game where gathering and crafting is the cornerstone of the economy, and are not faint of heart, I recommend EVE Online. EVE even has releases purely to support industry. You can play for free if you are good enough manufacturer or trader.

Be the builder in a villainous world.

Latest PTR notes

New Patch Soon
There will be a new patch coming soon (tm). This means a new rush of gear all needing enchanting and jewelcrafting. I believe that there are new legs (needing spellthreads/leg armor) and belts (new belt buckles), but would not swear to it.

With each re-balancing players also swap toons and old players come back, so my scribe will be busier (more on that in a later post - moonvengence is back)

But these two happen every patch, every new dungeon. So even though there is 'new stuff', it really is nothing to see here, please move along.

Specific changes worth noting from the patch notes.

MMO Champion have 2 items that I think are worth noting.

  • All trade goods available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors have had their prices reduced by 50%.
  • Maelstrom Crystals are now available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors.

While I have not yet bothered to work out the conversion rates, I generally assume they will be aweful. However, there are still enough players grinding Justice and especially Honor points to burn, that we will see a flood of new crystals, and hence cheaper prices. There are so many (other) players out there with more honor/justice points than gold. My enchanter will finally get all his recipees.

Any crafted item that has a Justice point equivalent will experience yet another a price drop. On some realms this price drop will preceed the patch as some crafters dump stock, but other realms will not notice it untill the patch hits.

I have not been playing or posting as much lately due to real life intervening. However (with the exception of my very infrequent political rants), this is a WoW blog, and I promise not to subject you to Rift musings.

  1. Are you sure that the prices of JP/honor GEAR are dropping? I thought it was just a reduction in the price of trade goods. If it's trade goods only, the impact is negligible. If it's trade and gear, the impact is pretty significant for both crafting and gearing speed.
