Yeah the price does fluctuate.
I just snipe whenever the price drops below 5g.
Build up the stocks on my tailor for the expac.
Ditto with runecloth and now herbs. Snipe snipe snipe :)

hello,

New Pet project.
Raise a char from lvl1 and get 90k gold on it.
I'll probably go herb/insc since that is the best i know.

I'm waiting for Whiptail to get in the 20g/stack range, otherwise I'll be content to sit it out and just wait for the new mats. Ele is starting to go sub-20g/stack, but not quite low enough for me to chase it.

Or, I guess with Elementium Ore, Blacksmithing blues (I think you need min lvl 82 to get full shards.)

I just leveled another Prot Pally on a high pop realm, because my home realm is deserted right now.
I did the Potion of Treasure Finding grind at Needlerock Chasm. The greens, requiring lvl 79-80 sell extremely well, now that people play their x'th toon to kill the boredom. From 60 up to 300 gold a piece. Plus ~300 cloth/hour and other crafting materials from the chests.
I made about 3-4k per hour/potion. Still a good way to get started.

Also, once you've got some gold, you can start to buy up the underpriced greens and put them back in. It's almost guaranteed, that they sell within the first 48 hours (given that the realm is buzzing). People don't care for the price, they just want to be able to join Blackrock Caverns and Throne of Tides.

Amen to that Gunni!

Was looking at my Statistics yesterday and noticed something I've been keeping an eye on - and now can say I just posted my ninety-thousandth auction on my current main. :lol: This toon has existed for a little under 13 months.

Happened to be browsing the "Known Issues 5.0.4" thread:
Inks sold by Inscription Supplies Vendors will appear to cost Ink of Dreams. These inks can still be purchased normally with Blackfallow Ink.

On my server, the other herbs have all gone very low supply and high price since patch, but blackfallow turned out to be pretty cheap and abundant, hehe.

So dropped engineering on my mage for enchanting (keeping in on my hunter), and started that spriest that will be scribe/tailor, so currently that will give me:

engineer/miner (will be leveled to 90)
scribe/ench (likely will be leveled to 90)
tailor/scribe (likely will be leveled to 90)
JC/alch x2 (will not be leveled to 90)
herb/alch (may be leveled to 90)
skinner/alch (will not be leveled to 90)

If it turns out I need another scribe or two for making DMCs, I can convert either the skinner or one of the JCs to a scribe (or both).

I'm not touching BS or LW, due to the leveling pains, and the fact that I don't think I'll have a toon with the rep or leveled enough to get SoH to make it worthwhile.

Other than finishing leveling the spriest, I'm ready...

Noticed a stealth change yesterday. With the patch Tuesday, they upped the requirements for each new level of professions. Which means that say for the Frostweave tier on Tailoring, your alt now needs to be 65 instead of 60, and the Embersilk requires 75 instead of 70. I assume the Panda levels will require 85, but I didn't check that.

I think this was done across all the professions. Yet another nerf to crafting alt-slave-workshops in the trade districts of SW and Org.

Your lvl 80 crafters will need to be leveled to 85.

I thought it was already 55/65/75/80? I know I've always had to be 65 to get WotLK professions.

Edit: I say "always". I mean since they changed professions around sometime in WotLK.

I know there were things on the spriest (tailor and scribe) that were requiring 40, 50, 60, so perhaps some other professions were already at the "5s". Been a while since I did professions other than gathering while leveling.

I had to get to 65 to learn Grand Master Inscription on my Rogue a month or so back (pre-5.0), with Cataclysm Inscription being 75 (I got lazy and stayed at 65). I remember the same being true for my Shaman's enchanting while levelling a year back. Gathering profs were lower level, though, IIRC (way back in WotLK, I don't bother with gathering any more)?

I can also vouch for BS/LW being that way. I think the secondary professions might be lower, but the primary ones I've leveled recently (i.e. since Cata was released) were 55/65/75/80.

Price of Hypnotic dust has shot up in the last two weeks. Gone from <50s to 3g+...

Had one player who kept trying to reset the price a few weeks back, up into the 2g50 range, but it never seemed to catch on and I hadn't noticed that seller doing it again, but then suddenly it was up and kept rising.

Now that one seller has reset all the Maelstrom Crystals from 35-40g to 115g...
