Is it only cooking that has been datamined so far? I've been looking for any news but so far it's just been this.Also this blog couldn't be in better hands than with Samadan. Maybe you'll have Gumdrops as a special guest sometimes for extra greatness :)
The link the Ghastly Goulash is pointing to Dubious Delight.
Thank you for taking over the torch! Glad that this series can continue.
So, next Sunday we got MASSIVE Reputation Buff. 15% Event, 10% Pilgrim Event, 10% Darkmoon Buff
I have 2.5m gold but even going for 10k per day , for such a long time is probably too much for me :(
I think that it should be mentioned that Longboy will be still obtainable from BMAH, so potentially for less than 5M gold as everyone who wanted to buy it for 5M will probably already have it by that time. On the other hand, it will be more rare, so who knows...
As for the mount, I'm waiting till it gets to BMAH and get it cheaper then 5M for sure.
Starting bid may be 5M for Longboi on the BMAH, we just don’t know yet.
Without more information, I'm not sure hedging bets on getting the Brutasaur from the BMAH is a great idea. They probably wouldn't have its frequency be so high and starting price be so low that people who buy it beforehand will feel gouged. I would expect its final price to be more than 5M for several years, even if the starting bid isn't 5M. Anyways, welcome. Curious if you're going to presume and/or promote multiboxing, because I tended to skip this series after it was apparent gumdrops did.
Either remove all dino mounts or none. It makes no sense.
Why does this column have to be written by a TSM rep? Is it sponsored? My biggest obstacle to making gold is players who let an addon tell them what price to set driving prices into the dirt.
Congrats to Samadan, he is by far the best gold maker in retail... wowhead really managed to find a pro! I will surely read anything he has to write, and already love watching his streams and videos on youtube. For anyone reading this, check him out on youtube, REALLY good content.
Just pay attention if you use "The road to 5 million" graph that if you start at 1 million, you probably want to end with 6, not 5, as you don't want to have 0 gold after you buy the mount, it can make problems for you future gold making and living generally...
I kinda like the idea of AH play, and I made my first serious gold on the AH in WoW... but I feel Blizzard has been undermining professions for a very, very long time. The Legion gave me a glimmer of hope, but now it's gone again. Other than consumables, professions don't make anything even remotely useful, with the exception of the new 400 inscription trinkets... but those are cheap and easy to find, offering low to now margins to aspiring scribes.I think the very nature of the AH is now working against it. You need to actually spend inordinate amounts of time to acquire and post your stock, and you need to do it over and over again, with no easy tools to control your costs. From what i see, more and more people only post gathered mats. Smaller realms and realm clusters have - once again - dry and empty-ish AHs.In addition, there's no clear division between run-of-the-mill crafts and leveling, so you get huge waves of level grind dumps, quite often below the actual cost to make, further discouraging from participation. For rare old crafts, useful for leveling or mog, just making and posting them blind is beyond anyone sane.Blizzard could build more interest in AH if it went further in revamping the AH, eg. by allowing to keep auctions up longer, or allowing to post offers to craft. It could also take off the silly veal of uncertainty by simply making info on auction results on the market as a whole - which auctions actually sold, and which did not. Even for consumables, they could for example roll utility potions, say, invis pots - make them all one item, and let crafters and market decide, which recipe gets used. But no, expac silos have become a sacred tenet, never to be broken.AH today is choke full of items posted clearly by people who simply don't understand that what they see listed isn't what the item sells for, it's merely asking (posting) price. And that there's no guarantee that if they THINK that BoE from raid is worth 30k, it will actually sell for this much - no matter what Undermine Journal says, because data there is only on posted auctions, not the ones that actually sold.But what the Blizzard does seems erratic, instead. LIFO they plan to implement incentivizes short times and reposts, which will never draw in the crowds who want AH to be LESS like a full time job, not MORE like it. Not to mention it will certainly lure newcomers into AH fee, cancellation fee, price baiting and other traps that await a newcomer. Leading to more people reaffirming their opinion they "just need all professions on their alts" and steer clear of the "band of crooks" that is the WoW AH and economy.
