Cold was bemoaning his ability to get all of his crafting alts through his firelands dailies, with claim that Blizzard hates us altaholics.
Breevok has abandoned some alts to concentrate on just a couple.
As for me? Since when do I have time for dailies? I barely even have time to post auctions.
We have a set of professions that have newly gated recipes. Blacksmithing, Leatherworking, Engineering, Tailoring. The 4 professions that between them have 8 crafted items that players want to buy. And as an aside, 4 profesions that traditionally have not already required some form of gating.
If there was no gold reward; on what toon do you most need to do the fireland dailies anyway? Go do the daily on that toon. It does have two maxed tradeskill professions?
Now, we know there is a gold reward for crafters who get their patterns/recipes first. If you are time constrained; concentrate on the toon(s) that you think will give you the most gold for the time you are prepared to invest.
Blizzard are giving us an entry cost to the peak levels of some professions. The correct question may be instead "Why would Blizzard do anything else?"
Also, consider that the glyphs that I have that sell for the most are the glyps that have the highest entry costs.
This is the market, we have stability and a reasonably accessible known framework. This is all a gold-maker needs.
PS. Still calling on toons for this Friday's GDKP run
