So has anyone thought what this new holiday is going to end up doing to the wow economy. I had just recently leveled up my fishing and was about to start leveling my cooking when this awesome new holiday appears. I got my cooking on all 3 of my 80s from 1-400 in about oh 3 hours. (i have tons and tons of fishes and rhino meat on my hunter). Cooking and fishing have always been a nice easy way to make some extra gold but now that everyone and their mom is going to have at least level 350 cooking I am guessing that prices of food will go down. Mega Mammoth Meals on my server went for about 60g a stack. And the most of the cooked fish when for almost 40-50g a stack. Does anyone else think that Blizzard put this out to intentionally lower prices.
Well, it shouldn't affect fishing, since the lack of fish wasn't due to lack of cooking skill.
As far as selling cooked stuff, I think if people hadn't been farming meat before, there should only be a few new people who say "hey, I have this new thing!"
If people are skilling their cooking up this way, they were probably pretty motivated to do it anyway, and this is just an opportunity.
Meh, leveling up cooking has never really been that big of a challange. Also, cooking these days requires a lot more than just the skill. Not only does it often require hard-to-catch fish, it also requires Northern Spices, which is in limited stock because it's a daily. So taking that into consideration, it won't crash the food market.
I actually wonder if this might possibly
the price of Northern Spices, since the potential market for it had grown. You can only get to around 400ish using recipes which don't require it and unless you have a toon that has been stockpiling it you will have it in limited supplies until you can start doing the dailies consistently. And even then you will only be getting a few a day and will be using your cooking awards to buy recipes rather than the Spices.
Of course, many people might be like me with one or two toon's cooking already at 425-450 (and a surplus of Cooking Awards) and most all the rest without it, using this holiday just to get alts up to the point that they can do the daily with no real intention of leveling it past that right now. In that case, it's unlikely that it will affect that particular market, but it might be worth keeping an eye on.
