Well, it's the end of the week (no Tuesday post), and I'm about RP'ed out. Long week, long day. I had a lot more typed up for today's post, but I decided to make some changes and scuttle one of my "targets", so I scrubbed those writeups. I'm not inclined to write about Pandas or Pokemon, but I think that 5.0 will be a lot of fun. Without further rambling...
I have to admire the guy's tenacity. Critical makes a lot of posts. I
don't personally agree with walling, but I believe it has its place in
certain situations. Myself, I have the capacity to post glyphs
throughout the day, so I usually don't need walls. I also don't cancel
my auctions, which sets up a sort of de facto wall, as I continue to
I have a full stack of ~240 different glyphs, though, and a stockpile of
12k+ Blackfallow inks - that amount of inventory allows me to post 12+
cycles a day and not have to cancel.
Critical does a great job explaining in what situations his walling
technique is useful in this post. Critical's main message - to think
for yourself - is the best advice a blogger can give.
A neat post about how the pros could counter critical's walling strat.
However, if Jafo is selling all glyphs, I could bring his operations to a
standstill by listing craptacular trainer glyphs at 2s, and buying
every undercut he posts. Regular sales over costs subsidize bad sales
under costs, but if I tip the scales and force him to craft 700 Glyph of
Weaksauce every couple weeks, he's taken a huge loss on his inks with
no accompanying demand in profitable glyphs to recover.
Would Jafo notice if someone bought 700 glyphs of weaksauce? Probably.
But - his post was "just-sayin..." so I'm "just-sayin..."
Kaliope uses the hilt of Thuderfury to nail the Diet of Crafters to the
door of Blizzard HQ, outlining her beefs with the current profession
Chaos orbs are a bit crazy now, but that should change when they go
BoE. As for Scribes - they take a significant investment to run
properly, but when you're firing on all cylinders, they make bank.
Stupid, filthy, bank. Kaliope misses the mark completely in saying
inscription is not viable. It is not for the faint of heart, and is not
a profession you want to mess with if you only want to post 1-3x a
day. Finally, the lack of Epics from JC is a pain, but... we make a
good bit of gold anyway.
I like Foo, but I have to disagree here. Toons will not be leaving gear
ungemmed. This is Cataclysm, not Wrath. You will not be replacing
gear that quickly, lots of folks have lots of gold, and dungeons are
just gonna be harder if you're not gemmed. I don't think the cut rares
business is in any trouble. Indeed, I think it will see it's best days
ever in the first month of 4.3.
