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.

      Two weeks ago, Blizzard started the PvP Like a Pro series, where they talk to world best Arena players. The first part was about finding the right partners and the second discussed team composition. Part 3 is devoted to effective practicing.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Part 3 - Practicing Effectively
      Minpojke of team Northern Gaming Blue has achieved rank one in Arena every season since 2011. His current squad has been playing together for more than two years, and came third in the Global Finals at BlizzCon 2016. With his help, we’ve built a five-step guide to help you practice like a pro!
      Synergy - Align Your Team
      Before setting out on your quest to the top, make sure you’re “aligned as a team,” says Minpojke. Like in any group activity, “it’s very important that everyone has the same goals and the same drive to do what it takes to win.” Make sure your team shares similar ambitions, and is aligned on how much effort will be required to achieve them. And of course, make sure you have similar gaming schedules so you can play and practice together!
      Atmosphere - Stay Positive
      It’s important to have a good atmosphere while playing. Minpojke says, “If you and your group get along and even become friends, you’ll like playing and actually learn more as well.” Be sure that the mood stays positive so that you can enjoy competing and improving together. It’s much easier to keep a team motivated if you’re all having fun—it’s a game after all!
      Stated more simply, Minpojke says, “It’s easy to win as a team—in the sense that it’s easy to be happy and celebrate—but if you’re capable of losing together, then you’ll be a great team.”
      Strategy - Know the Meta
      When it comes to making practice effective, Minpojke feels it’s a priority to stay up to date with the current meta. He told us that the best way to do this is to follow tournaments, high-level Arena streams, and the PvP Leaderboards to see which classes are on top.
      “It’s quite easy to keep up with the meta. Watch streams to see what the pros are playing, and track the ladder to see which classes and compositions are at the top. And don’t forget to follow tournaments to see the best comps shine.” Once you’re confident in what you want to play, it’s time to queue up! As FabsS discussed in our previous interview, Minpojke says that it’s important to set your win condition before the gates open. “Ask what you want to achieve as a team; will you focus on a lot of CC or try to draw out the game longer?” Since you know what matchup you’ll be playing against, you can start to ask these questions and develop your strategy.
      Analysis - Review Your Games
      If your setup supports it, Minpojke recommends recording as many sessions as you can—they’re much more valuable then looking at a damage meter. He says that the first objective is to see if you followed your game plan. Did you stick to it? Did it work? If the answer to either of these questions is no, you need to work on executing the plan better in future or possibly changing it up all together.
      Watching your own recordings is also a chance to highlight individual mistakes. As Minpojke says, “Always stay self-critical, and always look for ways to improve—you’ll notice pretty quickly your most crucial and common mistakes.” While Minpojke emphasizes that “losing is arguably the best way of learning,” he also reminded us that “it’s very important to recognize when you do well.” Think positively here: no one can play the perfect game, but there are often good takeaways to be emulated going forward.
      Reviewing recordings of his gameplay is a regular part of Minpojke’s routine, as well as discussing previous matches with his team between games while queueing. You can learn from a win as well as a loss!
      Execute - Implement Your Analysis
      After watching the replays, it’s time to set your goals. Decide what you want to focus on, and “make plans before you queue for a session.” If there was a specific matchup you were struggling with, you can discuss plans for how you’ll react to it next time.
      In some instances, it could be worth writing some notes, especially if you have many things to focus on versus many compositions. Minpojke equated it to studying for a test, “Practice it, and read it over and over until it sticks in your head.”
      Minpojke attended his first BlizzCon with current teammate Zunniyaki in 2013, finishing in second place. Northern Gaming Blue are the defending European Champions, and with nine BlizzCon appearances between their players, they’re one of the most experienced rosters in the field.
      You can watch Minpojke and Northern Gaming Blue compete live at gamescom from August 23-26. For the full details on when and where you can watch, head on over to our European Championship Finals blog.

      With 7.3 on the horizon, Blizzard did an official preview of new caster animations with videos and developer comments.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With patch 7.3 on the horizon, we thought it was time to share some updates to combat animations for several casting classes. Similar to what we did with the melee classes at the launch of Legion, these updates are all about priests, mages, Restoration and Elemental shaman, and some additional refinements to Restoration druid casting animations! We’re also continuing to work on even more enhancements for additional classes at a later point in development.
      A little over two years ago, we set our sights on revamping combat animations. The team has wanted to renovate it somehow, but what exactly does that mean? To determine the answer, our development leadership put together a small group of people to come up with a prototype of what we thought could use some cleaning up. You are currently experiencing the fruits of this work with the new melee animations. Our final goal was to create new melee moves that would make the game feel better, but not change how the game was played. During this prototype phase, we also came up with a plan for casters, but didn’t have time to put it into production until now. Let’s dig into some of the things we did.
      We hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the new caster visual updates. We had lots of fun creating all these animations and effects and look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

      In Patch 7.3, Blizzard will be increasing the difficulty and rewards from dungeons across the board. The changes help keep dungeons relevant even at the end of the expansion.
      The following changes will be effective when Patch 7.3 goes live:
      Normal Difficulty
      Item level 845 (up from 825). Heroic Difficulty
      Item level 865 (up from 845). Mythic Difficulty
      Item level 885 (up from 865). Mythic Keystone
      Loot item level will be increased only after Antorus the Burning Throne raid opens. World Bosses
      Loot from old world bosses remains at 860. Loot from Broken Shore world bosses remains at 900. Loot from Argus world bosses in Greater Invasion Points is at 930.
