Patch 7.1 is approaching and a lot of players will be lured by the siren of false riches.

What will happen after Patch 7.1 goes live?

  • Prices of reagents will go drastically down as there will be a large spike in supply. Players will be burning their bloods. Many players are currently sitting on lots of bloods, because apart from Professions there's currently no use for them. 
    • These very same players are willing to make quick Gold, which is where we will strike to make even more.
  • Prices will stabilize again somewhere below their current values when people burn all their bloods.

We want to make the most out of this opportunity, because we are patient little Goblins, right? Here are some steps to make you prepared for the Patch.

  • Nobody will be buying crappy items like Unbroken ClawUnbroken Claw or Lean Shank from the vendor as they want to maximize the value of bloods.
  • It all comes down to players whining about how expensive all herb-based products (flasks, elixirs) are, so let's talk herbs!

Hebs

Will be the most valued commodity. Let's do a little research based on current Median Prices (US) 

Note the prices are prior to the Blood of Sargeras trader, so they will decline.

Blood Spending

So, spending a blood on the Fjarnskaggl is 443.10 Gold, Foxflower 488.60 Gold and Starlight Rose just 344.13 Gold, which bring us to a conclusion that to get the maximum value of your bloods spend them on FjarnskagglFjarnskaggl & FoxflowerFoxflower on Patch day & resell right away as prices will go down through next week and won't reach today's prices.

Buying Herbs (from AH) & Making Profit

  • Starlight RoseStarlight Rose is a reagent used for many flasks and potions. It's also an item that will be overbought with bloods. On Patch day (October 25), prices are likely to be underpriced. The influx in supply will be vast and the price reduction will be crazy on Tuesday/Wednesday.
    • Meaning players will be undercutting and selling relatively cheap.
  • Wait until at least November 8 when Trial of Valor opens and resell all the roses when the demand gets higher and people will have spent their bloods.

Closing Tips

  • Don't forget to set up your Sniper to constantly scan the Auction House as miss-pricing will definitely occur. A separate account just for constant Sniping can always make you tons of gold!

Median price doesn't mean realm price. It's the halfway point between very cheap and very expensive. US - means across all servers in the NA region. Sniper is a powerful function of an add-on called TradeskillMaster, which allows you to buy cheap items and resell them higher. Basically, it's a real-time search of the Auction House. You get 3x roses from the vendor and 10x fj/fox, maybe pay a little more attention to the article :)

So for maximum gold profit which herb should I go for? Fjarnskaggl/Foxflower and sell them right away on the patch day or Roses and sell them off on Nov 8?

Check which herb has more value on your realm. I dare say this isn't even relevant, given the 4 gold difference in median and it's hard to say what happens with the herbs. Foxflower may even become cheaper than Fjarnskaggl after the vendor hits live.

 If you want to make quick gold with your bloods sell right away, as there will be lots of undercutting. I don't think reagent prices will stay at their current level. As for the rose, that's more for those who want to abuse people posting plenty of them for ridiculous prices. It's more of an investment "buy cheap now, resell higher later".

Either way if you're sniping and have your TSM properly set up, it should display any of the underpriced flowers.

Your logic is odd to me. Why spend your Bloods on release if you plan to sell them in the future? That's nonsense. Save your bloods, the future will come, and you can check to see which mats will net you the most profit.

However I am going to be spending every last one of my bloods on order resources and laugh at everyone else's regret. :)

What I meant was if:

  • > you want to make profit out of your bloods right away, buy the herbs with the highest median in your region
    • reselling them immediately will give you the most gold, because prices of reagents will keep declining.
  • > if you want to make profit of people burning their bloods, buy starlight rose from AH :)
    • it will be up cheap and its value will rise again on ToV release, as there is always a big flask demand whenever new raids open.

hopefully this clears it up a little, i've edited the part

No no no!

This information is so bad it is crazy.  EVERYONE will be dumping their herbs and prices will crash so why would you buy any herbs at all?!  You will need millions of gold to keep up with the Starlight Rose market on some servers and their bloods will keep coming so you won't ever be able to keep ahead of the game.  The amount you have to invest will never be worth the potential 50g profit per herb (which will never happen)

Prices are never going back up after this vendor kicks in.

DO NOT BUY ANY HERBS FROM THE AH! DO NOT WAIT UNTIL 8th NOVEMBER.

Try and trickle sell any you have over the next week before the vendor kicks in, same goes with potions and flasks for the same reason.  Players will start to panic and the prices will just plummet as the average players with a massive stack of bloods is going to dump them into herbs.

Be prepared for very aggressive and volatile markets on the AH as soon as the vendor is available and if you do want to sell herbs be prepared to cancel and relist your auctions multiple times.

SMH.

I have seen prices go way up instead of down on Winterhoof Seems the Blood vendor isn't bringing prices down but then again its the first day and people bought a bunch of herbs and are trying to gouge other players into paying stupid prices. I see a 500 percent hike compared to before the vendor hit.

Maybe someone's trying to control the market created a bubble? Starlight RoseStarlight Rose has dropped to 50g on my server (literally I had a guy selling 1074 pc/55K), prices are still declining. Which specific herbs do you mean? Checking Winterhoof, I can see all herbs only declining in price.

      Well, that didn't take long! It seems you can't keep the WoW secret finders in the dark for too long, as they've already broken through and managed to obtain the mount! Warcraft Secrets and the secrets discord were hard at work the past few days and today finally bore fruit as they pushed through all the colored crystal monocles and found their way to the Court of Stars.

      From there it's a whole lot of petting kittens and purring, followed by phase-shifting platforms to navigate, and then the goal itself:

      While the very end of the guide hasn't been updated yet, it will be very soon so head on over to Warcraft Secrets and check out the full guide, and you might be riding this crazy thing soon as well.
      And, of course, congratulations to everyone that helped out in the endeavor, it was an amazing performance by all involved!

The Elixir of Tongues has also made an appearance, allowing you to understand the opposing faction, and you can buy it from Lizzi Liverzapper.

      The folks over at Warcraft Secrets are hard at work, with The Hivemind mount still eluding them. But that may not be the case for long, as some secrets have already been revealed and a whole lot of clues found. As a reminder, the mount is presumed to be multi-person, and each person on it speeds it up by 10%, so it's one of the most unique mounts to come to WoW in a long time. In any case, there's colored crystal monocles and a lot of puzzle games involved, as well as everyone's favorite shopkeeper Griftah, who starts the whole thing off with the Talisman of True Treasure Tracking which then leads you to Vashj'ir, Skyreach and the Halls of Origination to start with.
      This one's definitely going to be a tricky hunt and you can check out the full guide for all the parts discovered so far and even help out with the search over at Warcraft-secrets.com.

      And, of course, as always, you can also join the Secret Finding Discord to share your findings and get really into the secrets and mysteries of WoW.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas recently answered some Battle for Azeroth questions submitted by the Greek WoW community before the expansion came out and here's a summary of the Q&A. We learn more about the removal of Master Loot, Warforging/Titanforging and the stat squish system.
      Q&A Highlights
      The team is excited about Mythic+, but at the same time they realize the incentive to run Mythic+ content with a lower barrier of entry has somewhat affected raiding in general and they're going to continue adding new benefits that are distinctly compelling to make sure raiding is still popular. They wanted to disable gear swapping in Mythic dungeons sooner but felt like doing it in the middle of an expansion in Legion would be bad. An entire Mythic+ dungeon is viewed in a lot of ways just like a single boss encounter, meaning no gear/talent swapping even when you drop out of combat over the course of the run. They're always looking for each spec to have a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses in PvP and that's hard in a game with 36 specializations. If you're Class is highly mobile, it's going to have less survivability. On the opposite side of the spectrum, you can expect to be tankier if you have less mobility. The team mainly focuses on increasing strengths as opposed to mitigating weaknesses. The alternative of always trying to bolster weaknesses leads to a state where everyone's kind of average at everything and that's a less interesting game to play in their opinion. With work done to the stat squish system in Battle for Azeroth, future stat squishes should be fairly easy to execute. They've overhauled every single spell and creature from 2004 through 2018 to complement the new system. No stat squish is needed for at least one expansion. Stat squishes are there to prevent numbers from spiraling out of control when there's no gameplay value out of it. Paladins and Druids in the Legion environment already bring plenty of utility, so they decided not to bring back Blessing of Kings and Mark of the Wild in the end. They're going to add more abilities to Classes whenever there's a need for differentiation. Years ago, loot was much harder to come by. Over the years, the game moved away from a space where you just kill a boss or run some content week after week and never see the item you want. Drop rates are now higher across the board, so you're effectively spending less time getting the item you want. Warforging and Titanforging keep some level of interest and potential growth in those repeated clears and create the opportunity for everything to happen, giving you more incentive to continue raiding the same tier. Sco got a Warforged socketed Polearm halfway through progress that was a giant upgrade for him on his tank that made an immediate difference. In a world where loot is more common, the rare opportunities to have these amazing items retains some moments of excitement. You're much better off doing a high Mythic+ rather than clearing old content for a small chance to get an upgrade. This was a problem especially in Legion, where players went back to clear Emerald Nightmare for a chance to get Legendaries or Titanforged versions of Class sets. That wasn't healthy for the game and they decided to move away from that. The benefits of removing Master Loot have outweighed the downsides so far and there are three things: On the lower end of the organization spectrum, there are guilds that go through trials and historically in the Master Loot world, guilds had very strict control of loot and trials were not allowed to get any loot. For the time and effort spent, the trial would get literally nothing out of it if the guild decided to not make the player a part of the roster. On the high end of the spectrum, we've seen top guilds run the same raid over and over to funnel gear to specific mains. Split raiding made it difficult to balance encounters and provide a challenge for Method and other guilds while still being a fun and satisfying progression experience for the majority of Mythic guilds in weeks to follow. Method's item level during the first week of Mythic would be higher than what typical guilds would have to work with a month later. It worked well in Uldir. Bosses like Mythrax, G'huun and even Vectis were challenges for top guilds without needing massive nerfs. Finally, it lets the team itemize in a somewhat different way. When Master Loot was an option, they had to design loot tables around the possibility of Master Loot, so very niche items (useful only to a handful of people) would drop even though there would be nobody in the raid to wear them. They think the raid composition in place since Warlords (LFR/Normal/Heroic/Mythic) is the right for World of Warcraft. LFR/Normal are serving totally different audiences. LFR is not a social or progress experience. Normal difficulty is for friends and family groups. In Mists, Normal difficulty was similar to Heroic today, groups found LFR unsatisfying and Normal as it was then to be too difficult, that's why Normal exists today in its current form.

      We have some incoming class tuning next week, with some flat % buffs for Feral Druids and Frost Mages, applied to both PvE and PvP.
      Class Tuning for December 18 (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, starting on December 18 in American realms, we’re focusing on shoring up a couple of specs that fell a little behind with Tides of Vengeance:
      Druid
      Feral Damage of all abilities increased by 7%. Mage
      Frost Damage of all spells increased by 3%. Both of these adjustments will apply to PvP activities as well.
