Insane AH deposit?
Return to board index
Starting to get off topic, but the point I think Goldfish is trying to make is that the gathering profession increases are very specific (Stamina / Crit). Yes, you get just as much stamina from Mining as BS and the others. Great if you're a tank. Now suppose you switch to a DPS or Healing spec. What's that stamina doing for you? Most min/max'ers go with the more flexible profs (BS, JC, etc) so that they can pick and choose exactly which stat(s) they increase on a per spec basis (or even have multiple sets of gear for the same spec with different bonuses.)
Not enough increases if you're min/maxing.
I tend to disagree. Mining, for example, provides 60 stamina. Blacksmithing provides two sockets, which with epic gems corresponds to 60 stamina. Leatherworking provides fur linings to replace bracer enchants; the stamina one upgrades from the 40 stamina enchant to 102 stamina, a net gain of 62 stamina. Enchanting allows you to enchant your two rings; stamina enchants on rings totals 60 stamina. Jewelcrafting allows you to socket three Dragon's Eye gems; a stamina gem provides 51 stamina, for a net gain of 21 * 3 = 63 stamina for three of them instead of regular epic stamina gems.
Beginning to see a pattern, aren't we. At most, you're looking at a 3 stamina difference. Min/maxing for 3 stamina seems fairly extreme to me.
Gathering professions (except lolherbalism) have stat increases too.
"Lol" herbalism may not have stat increases but it has a very useful healing bonus that comes in handy for my Mage and Warlock. Plus, you can make a lot of gold selling herbs so herbalism is nothing to laugh at.
I agree about the deposits being crazy on some items. Yes you get it back (minus the cut) but some items, such as green armor and weapons, have insane deposits and don't sell quickly or for much, if they sell at all so I just vendor them or give them to guildies for enchanting. I understand the reason behind the deposit but in some cases they discourage use of the auction house.
As for saronite, one one of my servers, the cost of the deposit plus the price it's selling for is sometimes more than what it vendors for so I just sell it to the vendor. I guess each server varies.
