Hotfixes by Blizz Dec16 and How They Affect You

AGAIN? The amazing folks at Blizzard have changed a few things once again....nothing really crazy, however take note of the pyrite and jewelcrafting change.

Glyph of Seal of Insight now correctly increases healing done by Word of Glory and Light of Dawn while Seal of Insight is active.
Really? This has been broke, I thought it was just me...

Pyrite Ore is prospectable at 500 Jewelcrafting skill, down from 525.
Look for a bit of saturation in the market as most gemmies are already at this point, and with Pyrite Proccing Volatile Earth, you should see an influx of these hitting the market, so watch your server's prices...I however will be keeping a small stronghold of my Pyrite stash for the main fact that we will see epic gems at some point, and where will they come from? Yup. Pyrite....

Engineers can now purchase Smooth Cogwheels from Frank Natale using 4x Handful of Obsidium Bolts.I am not an engineer, do not know much about them, but I imagine this is a good thing.

And of course there are other changes made, some we know about, others we will have to find ourselves. Which group will you be in? Will you check all your different farming areas? Ores, Herbs, Mobs? After a patch/hotfix, that is the first thing I do, and can usually catch a change (good or bad) each time. Keep Rocking, and do yourself a favor, get your shopping done quickly, as Christmas is only a few days away!

Wow - Pyrite prospectable at 500? That means that when we do get epics, anybody will be able to prospect them. 525 takes at least 4 days and some coin right now, but powerleveling to 500 is pretty easy. That will definitely affect supply when Epic gems hit.

How long do you think it will be before we get epics, Alto? Would be interesting to think about stockpiling JC tokens for that.

Ugh. You had to ask that one. And I have to answer....

To give a guess, I would have to say the next major patch, when they add the start of Cata end game...They will add a few 10 mans, maybe a 25 man, and god can only hope to give us an AQ type 40 man raid (I might actually start raiding again) before their next expansion (prob every 2-3 months), which will prob be yearly"ish" now (the xpacs), and come in 5 level increments (to keep sales of WoW going, and quicker).

My very horrible uneducated guess tells me that mid Jan, early Feb they will beta out the new raids, and it should be soon after that you will see the prospectable epics added (I could always be wrong about them ever being prospected, but they have to in some way...maybe a style dropped off bosses, but they need to be crafted somehow, and gemmies will prosper, whether it's from pyrite, another "new" ore, "mined" off bosses/ inside instances, etc.)

Keep an eye on the "beta" testing, if you aren't signed up, do so now....thats a great way to see the unseen for upcoming profits.

But, as usual, take this with a grain of salt, as it is basically a speculation on my part. But when it does happen, you will already be ahead of the game. Hope this answered your question, ADHD starting kicking, so I rambled a bit.

Thanks, Alto - I just wanted to get your thoughts on the timing. I started back in July, so WotLK Epics were already in place.

I'm not signed up for the beta, but that's a good tip - I should try to get involved in that.

As always - keep up the great work!
