The latest news revolving around WoW's economy.

Chaos Crystal Supply

Expect price drops for Chaos CrystalChaos Crystals as the supply has greatly increased, because of the latest hotfix:

  • Emissary Chests now award epic items, which can be disenchanted into CCs.
  • If you're sitting on a lot of crystals, now wouldn't be the best moment to sell them.

A Good Time to Sell Mageweave Cloth

Due to this very niche issue, people hated with Gadgetzan (players who did Bloodsail rep) aren't able to complete their Engineering quest line. The only way to do this is to turn in plenty of cloth to reset their reputation back to Neutral. This is why Mageweave ClothMageweave Cloth should see a spike in demand.

  • It's unknown if Blizzard plans to address this issue with a hotfix, until then, you can start selling cloth like crazy.

Darkmoon Daggermaw Reminder

This is just a reminder for anyone who hasn't read our Darkmoon Daggermaw gold making guide yet.

Do I Have Any Rare Recipes?

Having rare recipes, especially as a Tailor e.g. Sunfire HandwrapsSunfire Handwraps or any other patterns that have already been removed from the game is always a nice money maker.

  • If you're not entirely certain whether you own any recipes that could yield profit and you've been playing the game for long, try to use this tool. It will sort all your learned profession recipes by rarity.

Patch 7.1 Potion Killer?

Potion of Prolonged PowerPotion of Prolonged Power is added in Patch 7.1 and the Blood of Sargeras vendor won't help Alchemy either.

  • We'll have to test out how the new potion is compared to Potion of the Old WarPotion of the Old War that provides an approx. 2.5% damage increase.

So  the Pattern:  Sunfire Robe is BoP.  I think you might need a better example.

I meant the Handwraps and of course other patterns with extremely low drop rates e.g. Pattern: High Society Top HatPattern: High Society Top Hat or such that have been entirely removed from the game e.g. Pattern: Robes of ArcanaPattern: Robes of Arcana. It's awesome that you can still buy them if you're lucky enough and then sell for transmogs.

So my Priest can make the Robes on Arygos if you are in a pinch.  Haven't even thought of recipes that have been removed for Transmog.

I see things differently now.  As you only need to buy it once, I feel that things will slow down.  Thoughts?

What exactly do you mean by slow down? Personally, I think it's worth investing every single copper in these rare patterns.

  • Many may not realize the true value of the item or the fact it's removed from game
  • You may just have found a great gold making niche in xmog with almost no or very limited competition given the pattern's rarity.
    • You can set your own pricing if there's no competition.

Stan,

What I mean in slowing down (Prices to fall / devalue) is now that each account only needs 1 of the item ever to learn.  Do you think that Transmog will eventually slow down or do you think new players will always be looking for the next best set?

I don't really think it should have any big impact on the market. It's more for veterans who appreciate a truly unique look and are ready to pay the price for it. Having an xmog that's not around any longer is better than being equipped in a full Tier set. I see dozens of people running around in Tier 6 sets all the time. Speaking from my personal PoV I want people to remember my xmog, I don't want to look like anybody else.

      Today's blue posts round-up covers a lot of PTR class discussions, like changes to the new golden 7.2 Unholy Death Knight Trait (Festering Talons) or Druid's Intimidating Roar. On Twitter, we learn there are currently no plans to increase the amount of Legendary items one can wear in 7.2. It may come in future, but they're undecided.
      Death Knight
      The new 7.2 golden trait for Unholy (Festering Talons) will be updated in a future build.
      Sigma (Source)
      The gold trait should be changed in an upcoming PTR build to something that doesn't add Festering Wounds (and therefore resources and GCDs) to the rotation, since Unholy is still a bit swamped. Druid
      Intimidating Roar will root targets instead of snaring them in 7.2.
      Sigma (Source)
      While I am somewhat loath to respond to a thread where 23 of 25 posts are by the same person (and I apologize in advance to my colleagues from Community about this), it turns out that this is being changed in 7.2. Intimidating Roar will root targets rather than snaring them by 50%. We felt the current behavior was inconsistent with the tooltip, and also that the talent shouldn't feel like it adds risk to the ability that isn't present in the untalented version. Mage
      Further tuning for Frost Mages is underway.
      Sigma (Source)
      Thanks for the detailed look. We agree there could be some cleanup around proc minutiae and Winter's Chill timing, including getting rid of the possibility of the double Ice Lance.

      Few other minor notes:
      --Frozen Touch is slightly underpowered, but we likely have to be careful with it until we do something about the possibility of infinite Thermal Void rotations.
      --Glacial Spike is intended to double-dip crit on the Icicle (Mastery: Icicles) portion of the damage, but it would be better if it didn't double-dip % damage buffs such as the ones you mentioned.
      --Glacial Eruption should be on PTR soon, but it will be able to Shatter. Rogue
      Discussion revolving around Roll the Bones and True Bearing.
      Sigma (Source)
      Overall it would be more ideal if the Roll the Bones buffs were closer in value. True Bearing has gradually crept up over the course of the expansion (around the time of Legion launch, I believe Shark Infested Waters was considered best, and they haven't changed much since then). I expect True Bearing climbs in value as the rotation gets faster due to stat increases and other bonuses being added over the course of the expansion, which all feed into the True Bearing positive feedback loop. Simply making it baseline would speed up the spec even further and contribute to the energy flood and other issues that it can have. While the similar effect was passive in Warlords, I'm sure (I haven't dug into this closely) that the Legion spec churns combo points much more rapidly. In any case the Legion version of True Bearing has the added synergy with Marked for Death that heaps even more combo points into the rotation during True Bearing.

      Point being, while there's not a specific plan yet for balancing out the different Roll the Bones buffs, we agree that it would be better they were more even again. Longer-term, there's something to be said for tweaking the rules/probabilities of Roll the Bones in a way that would further reduce the value of rerolling frequently. Warlock
      Afflicition should feel most at home when applying dots to multiple targets (multi-dotting) and if Tier 20 Set Bonuses (Item - Warlock T20 Affliction 2P Bonus //  Item - Warlock T20 Affliction 4P Bonus) interfere, they will get changed. Overall, different specs within pure DPS classes should have better delineated distinct strengths than they have right now.
      Sigma (Source)
      We do agree that Affliction should feel most at home when it is applying DoTs to multiple targets. With specs like this where the basic mechanics and history of the spec lean towards being strong in one area, there's often a fine line to draw on how it should perform in the other areas (here, single-target damage). It shouldn't feel useless, but should feel like other players may have the advantage there. It's fine for a talent like Malefic Grasp to exist, but this logic probably implies it's slightly stronger than would be ideal. It's good feedback on the preliminary T20 set bonuses that they might push Affliction _away_ from feeling good when multi-dotting, which is something we'd want to avoid.

      More broadly and looking ahead to the future, we agree that different specs--especially different specs within a pure DPS class--should have better delineated distinct strengths than they currently have in some cases. That doesn't mean the magnitude of the difference has to be very large (see the "useless" comment above). Especially in a context like single-target DPS, which is the subject of intense analysis and scrutiny, even a few % of difference in DPS is more than enough for players to notice and take seriously as a strength or weakness of a spec. Simply that it should be more clear what the scenario is that each spec has to look forward to as the place where it stands out, such as sustained multi-dotting for Affliction, or situations that allow Destruction to leverage Havoc especially well. Twitter
      There are no plans for 7.2 to increase the number of Legendary items you can wear (it may come in the future). Power Ascended is the gating behind new pets, Class Mount tints. To purchase them, one needs a fully- unlocked Artifact weapon. There are only four pets (3 for Death Knights, 1 for Monk), a Pepe toy for Demon Hunters and different Class Mount tints that you get for additional Order Resources.

      Guardian Druids get a new bear form appearance through Claws of Ursoc in Patch 7.2. The bear form was first previewed at BlizzCon last year. Four color variations of the new form are available.
      We're not sure how to unlock the first tint yet, but the other tints have their requirements added:
      Tint 2 - Defeat Kil'jaeden on Heroic difficulty using this Artifact appearance Tint 3 - Win 10 Rated Battlegrounds with this Artifact appearance Tint 4 - Defeat all dungeon bosses with this Artifact appearance Below are screenshots of the bear form

      In Patch 7.2, every class can unlock a Class Mount after completing Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two. Some will change colors based on specialization, while others can be earned from Power Ascended. Now that we've previewed them separately, it's time for a summary!
      Overview of all Class Mounts and their tints coming in Patch 7.2.
