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.  

Cloth:  http://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/3811496849
Leather:  http://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/3811455915

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.

      A new week with new chances for beta keys!
      It's a new week and the perfect opportunity to give out a new batch of beta keys for Battle for Azeroth! This week, we're going to be putting multiple contests into certain news posts that discuss something WoW-related. Each post will act as a separate contest that users can enter, with a total of 4 going live on the forums and an additional 1 on Twitter.
      We understand that it can be tough to keep track of which contest is where, so this post will act as a homepage for the upcoming contests. You can check back here to see exactly which contests are live, what you have to do to enter and how many keys are being given away.
      Please note that you cannot enter any contests on this post directly; you will need to follow the link to the contest and enter there.
      Here is the list of this week's contests:
      [FORUM] Giveaway 1 - [Closed] All winners for G1 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 2 - [Closed] All winners for G2 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 3 [Closed] Winners will be contacted for G3 shortly. [FORUM] Giveaway 4 - [Closed] Giveaway ends when poll ends. Vote in poll for chance to win.  Winners chosen at random. [FORUM] Will go live 25/06 While the giveaway-specific rules are listed above, we also have a general set of rules that apply to every giveaway. You can find them listed here.
      We wish any entrants the best of luck in each giveaway they enter and hope that we'll see many of you enjoying the beta shortly after! For any questions you might have about this post or the giveaways, you can ask them in this thread and I will do my best to answer them promptly.

      So, we have another 25 beta keys to share with our community and we thought we'd go a little historical this time around, focusing on the raiding aspect of WoW. Since we do raid race coverage here at Icy Veins and have plenty of top raiders in our guide writing ranks, it only seems apt for us to try and find out which guild our community thinks was the best of all time.
      Personally, I'm clearly biased, as I used to play in Nihilum, who were at the very top for a while there at the start of WoW, but don't worry, all you have to do is actually vote and you'll be eligible for a key, there's no actual "correct" answer and we've also provided an option for those of you who don't know any of these guilds. And if you want to check some stats on the various guilds, just so you can get it right, you can head on over to Method's World Fist Timeline.
      So, let's see who comes out on top, and if you don't have a strong opinion on the matter, just go for the last poll answer! You can also check out out main giveaway thread as there will be one more this week or you can just keep an eye out on the frontpage!

      The Legion Companion App will serve as the main World of Warcraft mobile application from July 11 and onwards to Battle for Azeroth.
      After the retirement of the Remote Auction House, it is time to bid farewell to the WoW Mobile Armory App as well. Players will have a single mobile application, since the Legion Companion App will be converted into a new WoW Companion App, which will contain new features from Battle for Azeroth as well as favourite features from the original application (probably the guild chat).
      We just hope this application maintains its light size, unlike the Hearthstone game app!
      Blizzard Entertainment
      As of July 11, 2018, we will no longer be supporting the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app. But this isn’t the end of the road, as we’re continuing to develop and improve our mobile offering for World of Warcraft.
      As a part of our commitment to providing WoW players with a living, connected experience on multiple fronts, we are transitioning away from the current World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app and will be converting the Legion Companion App into a new WoW Companion App in the future. As part of that, we’ll be incorporating many of your favorite World of Warcraft Armory app features along with features for Battle for Azeroth into a new shared app for a more streamlined experience. Stay tuned for more information.

      Several redditors spotted a new entry in the beta/PTR event calendar, featuring the pre-expansion event. It's already started on the PTR and it's called the War of the Thorns, featuring conflict in Darkshore for control of Teldrassil. Now, we know how that particular "control" ends up, but hopefully the event itself won't be as fire-y!
      Also, based on the length of the event, it seems most likely we'll be seeing it come up on live servers on or around July 17th, if we assume it will last until the expansion launch itself, so we have a little over three and a half weeks until we see the pre-expansion event and the pre-patch itself as well! It's a little unclear if the Battle for Lordaeron will be part of the pre-patch or will be available at launch, so the date might actually be a little earlier since it seems logical that the events won't overlap, as one is caused by the other. so another possible date would be July 10th.

      Also, check out what you should do before the pre-patch goes live, as there are achievements to be had that will be removed.
