In regards to morality on virtual trading, I've had similar situations arise when building up an account's value in another game, Team Fortress 2, where I'd say largely the same rules applied to me as they do in WoW.I used to seek out quicksells, items being sold blatantly sub-market value, snipe on automated sites/community market and even dabble in "sharking", which essentially was lowballing new players for a giant profit margin (rare unboxes/old promo items). Ultimately trading was a fun game for me and I didn't become dedicated to it to the point I had large-scale operations for buying commodities low/selling high - which the top traders were doing. The trading community was rather competitive and hostile and that attitude has stuck with me. I can safely say I wouldn't feel any guilt about landing some high-value snipes, exploiting the market etc., it's a fun detour from the usual gold gains. Even if I'm on the losing end I can cope with it. Live and learn.
Could care less to be honest about the cost being higher for gold mission, but doing 900 gold mission yield about the same amount for less cost.
The gold rewarding missions are likely to be removed when Legion ends. I guess it is time to spend all the BoS I have stacked in my bank and use it for gold missions. Thanks!
I really like the new look and design of TSM4. I'll continue to be a loyal user of TSM. I'm pretty sure I'd be lost without it for my Auction House needs. Thank you for providing such a fantastic addon <3
I sadly have not been able to participate in the Lunar event this year, my birthday and work made sure of that. I am however really excited about the Legacy Loot change, if nothing else I think that it will help transmog runners so that they don't spend their lives waiting for one item to drop. I think the majority of us can agree that Patch 7.3.5 was pretty awful, so this should help in some way (however small) to make it more bearable.
I like the looks of TSM4. The old UI always felt gaudy somehow. Looking forward to seeing that get released!
I accidentally sold a x51 rocket mount for 120g instead of 120,000g a while back and the guy gave it back after I messaged him and said my account was hacked and he had to give it back or blizzard would do it and he did, mindblowing
Love the WoW economy feature. Helpful, practical info.
When it comes to ethics I never feel bad when sniping some great deals or even baiting people into sniping my stuff thinking it's worth more, the reason I never feel bad is I've been in there shoes and I see it as this will make them learn to take extra care when posting or research the item they are selling better if the response to that is "I've not got time for that" then it's simply tough.
Vantus runes have always been an easy sell. I rarely see them returned to my mailbox.
What do you think about the proposed legacy loot rule changes?They sound good if they work as described.
Those are really good changes with the loot system, wish they'd implement them a bit earlier. About the gold farm- yeah, its is main income for me, I guess... so that's bad..I'm not an AH person :D
I haven't really participated in the lunar festival this year, I did the achievements last year and bought the toys at that time as well so I only bothered to pick up some coins from elders I happened to pass by this time. Definitely think the legacy loot change is a good idea, it greatly increases the chance of getting the transmog items you are after. You can always still have bad luck of course but in general I think it will decrease the time and effort spent on collecting transmogs a lot
Great post as always mate. always a pleasure reading your posts and seeing you in stream. A truely friendly and helpful gold maker out there
It's nice actually making some gold and earning some reputation with the Lunar festival. But to me, the best part is having a reason to go out and visit old zones for that nostalgic feeling. :)
Sadly i have not had time to start on the lunar festival yet but i plan to start today hopefully. As for the changes to legacy raids i think it will be a nice way for me to get some enchanting mats for previous expansions while still running raids for some of the mounts i need to pick up. Curse you dragonsoul and throne of thunder for never dropping mounts for me.
woha, didn't even know about those transmog changes, that means cheaper transmogs :p
