I log in this morning to do my daily ritual, and what do I notice? Very little Elementium Ore. No Obsidium Ore. What's the deal? Is someone stockpiling? Was there a banwave of bots again? Yesterday, I pondered why there was more than just a quick 4 hour server downtime, then maintenance, server restart, and another download.
|Obsidium Ore in AH- Nothing there?!|
As per my normal ritual, I had about an hour to play this morning. And due to seeing this new niche market pop, I hopped on my herbie and went to Hyjal. Want to know what I got?
An hour in Hyjal gave me 244 Obsidium Ore, 218 Cinderbloom, 86 Volatile Earth, a few uncommon gems, and 124 Volatile Life: Total farm at current prices? Hold onto your hats..... 3480GPH. Even with the recent Whiptail "goof" from Blizz, I didn't even hit 3K. And now without bots taking MY nodes? Wow. I was surprised when I opened my bags to that one. But I didn't mention the best part, which brings my hour farm to almost 5K? The rare mob Blazewing, found along my farming route in Mt. Hyjal. Blazewings Furious Kilt.
At this time, I am on skype hollering at a few buds, Xander of Xander's Gold Mine, and Adam of Exploit my Server, and we start chatting a bit about it. So I start checking around after Adam mentioned word of a banwave happening....
Do you folks see a insane peak in prices of gathering mats? Or the total amount available drop considerably?
