To start off, I just want to remind you to look to the left of this post, and click "follow" to be added to my blog. If you are new to the site, please take some time to run through some of my older posts. Feel free to comment and I will do my best to answer or reply as soon as I can. Enough of that....now, onto what you came here for:
Farmers, rejoice! This is great information, I am loving it! This will definitely get me exploring more, as there is one thing I love in WoW more than making gold...finding rares (as you can see in a previous post). And a "quicker" respawn rate? LOVING IT!
Jewelcrafters, here is Blizzards Part I of their belated gift to us! I will be (starting now) making a small stockpile of gems for this patch (small stockpile? isn't that like saying jumbo shrimp? well, kinda. Don't stop selling your gems, but also don't let yourself ever have zero stock. Even though my best guess is that 4.0.6 is an easy two weeks to a month away, you don't want to be left out here). There are a few more changes listed below:
New meta gems have been added:
- Agile Shadowspirit Diamond (Agility/3% critical damage)
- Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond (Strength/3% critical damage)
- Burning Shadowspirit Diamond (Intellect/3% critical damage)
The changes are kind of generic, but the part that sticks out to me is highlighted...Being "unbound" and can basically be a "world Cata drop" off creatures (blizz, does that mean not off humanoids?) Watch for an easy 2-5K price in the AH for these recipies (might be quite a bit more depending on the droprate- I will keep you updated when I find out- I have a toon in PTR right now, so I will holler if I find one out there). I will keep a stock of 3 Tokens for the new dream emerald cut though, as should you.
I don't believe that this will have much affect with the current market. There will always be herb farmers, as it is a great gold making profession, and herbs are volatile, meaning twofold. One, herbs are not only used by Alchemists (supply), and you can only sell so many pots (demand), and two, every herb farmer has TONS of Volatile Lifes for sale. This change will not make a huge difference in prices (imo).
Other than the Rare Mobs change (see above), this is great for me. I enjoy farming certain mobs (and can do an hour straight before the boredom sits in- so perfect for me that the Potion of Treasure Finding has an hour duration), and have already been using the potions religiously while farming, they already give great profits (around 600-800g profit per), and if they are "slightly" improving the droprate, then that will "slightly" improve my gold profits. Good thing.
This I like. Volitale Air is and always will be a profitable farm (see JMTC post on farming it in Uldum) and I don't forsee the price dropping significantly, but you will see a slight drop (I am guessing 10%) from the current prices.
I feel like a noob for not knowing where this place is, I don't believe I have been there let alone farmed there, but I always like to see when spawn rates are increased.
There you go, that is what I have seen in the patch notes (full list can be seen here). Hope you can remember some of these a month from now....you might want to tab this post in favorites for a quick glance before they go live. As usual, I will consistently update you with anything new I see.
