I haven't camped much for rare spaws that drops mounts, I think it's too much trouble and a bad way to spend your game time, specially with the huge amount of different mounts available in the game. But I have to confess I've camped rare spirit beasts for my BM hunter...
Even if it this particular issue was an API thing, the Mobile Armory app really needs some love. It hasn't gotten an update in almost a year, and that update was just to update it for Legion. I agree that it'd be great if they could tie it together with the Legion Companion app, but I have a feeling that we'll be waiting until the next expansion if that happens. No sense in doing all the extra work if the Class Hall functionality won't be used after Legion (I suspect World Quests are here to stay, though).
I want to touch on the rare spawn point, as I have a kind of unique experience - I got TLPD in Cata by complete accident. I was farming the jeeves pattern on my hunter near one of his spawn points and just happened to catch him with npcScan. I love playing mount chicken ever since in cities with random people - roll up to a rare or cool mount and try to one-up each other. I think some mounts should still be hard to come by, but I think they should be more current, and I like the idea of opening up spawn rates after we've moved on to a new expansion because honestly, there are a lot of really cool mounts in this game! I think sharing the experience of having a neat mount with players after the fact is way more fun than "nyah nyah I got lucky 6 years ago" and if current mounts are less common, it gives the truly dedicated something to show off with.
I tried a while agos leatherworking shuffle. But the prices in my server are not the best. The bussines went dow a few months ago but i hope, with the release of Antorus, to be at the top again. In order to be prepared i' ve been stacking mats to flood the market with enchants.
Are Blizzard giving players more Poseiduses right before water expansion? :) The change of respawn of these rares is very good though. I only wish Blizzard make Poseidus 112 lvl rare with 120m HP.
Interesting read,I do agree with the increased spawn rates "cheapening" the rarity of said mounts.If a rare mount mob is spawning every four hours on the dot compared to say once a week,I feel the achievement of being so lucky to actually have been able to be one of the rare few to find it,is lost.It doesn't feel as rewarding compared to camping/searching for days,weeks,months and if really unlucky years.Of course it's a good thing for those who have been very unfortunate and can finally get a certain mount they want.
Good to see how the economy is running. Its been a while since I last played. I missed quite a bit... damnThanks!
i never understant why wow economy u not give a part to pets.lvl up and sell pet give ton of gold lot of people.i done probably few milion gold last few year.i dont bother with proffison becouse of if u not do right times.its always posible backfireotherhand lvled or not specially rare pet gain values.like worlthless some timeless isle pets not gone pretty good prices if u had them and didnt bother sold at past probably will be more expensiver next expansionbut 10-20g barely sold comon pet if u lvl them few battle plus lvling stones.u can sell 1.5-2.k around list 50 pet like this weekly 50k profit isnt so bad
Just came back to WoW about a month ago. Capping professions has become really hard and I wish Blizz didnt do that. Im stuck finishing alchemy, first aid, and cooking. I almost dont even want to try anything else lol so I find it hard to believe all professions are good? I havent made a single cent on my server with alchemy. If anything, I feel I have been dumping extra money into it just to try to cap it!
The Argus profession updates were a big disappointment to me. I was able to sell a few blacksmithing breastplates early, but other things just weren't even worth making. It's still more profitable to just make some older pieces, especially darkmoon trinkets if you have a friend you can trade cards with. Decent demand for those still.
Greetings,Thank you for the " WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-up". The info you post here is very helpful. I allways look for the next hint for gold making.
While not a nomination for best profession, I really like engineering. The convenience of it with the mail box, repair bots, and gliders is nice.
I love the rares change. I find it especially useful for collectors like me. There are a lot of toys, pets and mounts that still need farming from older zones, and I hope that they keep this line in future expansions.
I really think they shortened the respawn of Poseidus due to the next expansion having lots of underwater stuff. Same goes for all the aquatic mounts that have been showing up during Legion.
I think the best you can't really tell what the BEST proffession is the best. I personally am working on leveling alts, so I have all of them accesible for me. I want to finish that until the next expansion. Great article, as always btw :)
"How have you handled the change in this particular market? Are you buying out cheap ore? Are you holding on to your stock? What are your longer term plans as Antorus approaches?" Honestly I think it is too early too tell, I sold some ore the other day at a decent price. But noticed last night the price has dropped down to 29g. That still works out to be an easy 5-6k gold /hr farming basilisks in the fel pools around Hopes Landing. I'm an optomist. EDIT: Just logged in and the price is back up to over 40g/ea. So not still not overly concerned...OTOH, even if THAT market goes by by, I am still making decent gold from all my alts' class hall missions. I'm a serious altoholic with 24 110's (one each class, each side across 2 linked servers). On the gripping hand, ever since I started WoW i've been a 'goblin' and always found some way to make gold. There always seems to be a boom/bust cycle so I'll just keep plugging away til the next best oportunity shows itself.And for those who thing being a 'goblin' is a bad thing... remember what the man said 'Greed is good. '(;</P>p.s. If i win the virt tik, drinks are on me O_o
I like the point you made regarding the Reins of Poseidus mount and a possible ocean expansion. Really looking forward to friday for the reveal!
