The new crafter vestige is still not displaying on my main server, having to server hop to buy one is getting frustrating -.-
I feel that changes to professions and how the AH works in Shadowlands were intended to benefit full-time moneymakers and make professions less profitable for those who only dabble. Thus there would always be a supply of tokens and players who needed gold but could no longer make what they needed by things like gathering.
42069 gold in trade... nice
how far off is this patch? im at the end of my rope and am heavily considering transferring my main to horde and if the patch is still like a year off then i'm going to just do it.
Most of the full-time moneymakers that control markets on servers do everything that Blizzard says it's not allowed. From bots to multiboxes. Reported the same old players everytime just to see them with all their accounts farming important mats really fast (a normal crafter will farm and loot with one character while those guys will farm and loot with 5 or more at the same time, since the game gives loot to everyone in that group or the famous 2x4).And since they have so much gold, Blizzard basically pays for them since they pay for game time with gold, transfers to move mats and gold with battle.net balance and so on.And of course, RMT. Lots of it.For the normal player, Shadowlands is really bad thanks to the legendary system. Plenty of gold wasted from players that just play the game and do not take part into Boosting (RMT or not), botting, multiboxing, AH control, etc. on top of that Blizzard even made "fun" out of them by creating the shard system for 9.1 (making people throw away their high rank legendaries and all the gold invested on it because of the gear slot) and bringing back tiers for 9.2. You would think that Blizzard would do the logical fix of not increasing the ranks anymore by crafting, but instead with the players farming the mats (Korthia Crystals or Progenitor Essentia) to create BoP vestiges and apply to their existing legendary. But...Somehow Blizzard looked at those full-time moneymakers and decided that the entire player base is like that. With many characters gold capped and all. They know those players use multiboxing, bots, etc. and made it really costly to join the legendary crafting.
I really hope they do not combine all realms into one giant AH, at least not as it is. Having the most recently posted item sell first and the mess that causes with cancel scanning is awful enough when its just a few people per server, if they put us all together it is just going to compound the current issues to make the AH horrible to interact with as a seller. Just removing the ability to cancel or other commonly suggested solutions is not an easy fix either. There are individuals with 2 or 3 accounts dedicated to playing the AH, with millions of gold in reserves to buy up materials. They can afford to craft a huge stock and keep posting new items over and over so theirs is the one that sells, and multiple accounts lets them avoid all the restrictions like limited posts per character/account. Throttling the posts, removing the ability to cancel, and other "solutions" like these only hurt the smaller players that only have one account and don't cancel scan. The AH design needs help, and these issues need fixed before they mess things up by throwing us all in together. At least right now I can hide on a lower population server and avoid the worst of it. I just want to craft things here and there and make enough to cover my subscription, I have no interest in camping the AH and not being able to go out and play the game.
The simple answer to the legendary system from the beginning was, pick one. Either you go with a fully flushed out leggo crafting system that has unique appearances and a wide array of powers that can be crafted and slotted to any item slot of the players choice with zero restrictions, or you give us a simpler legendary system where all legendaries have to be a particular slot, can maybe be crafted or otherwise obtained, and have more limited class/role functionality similar to WoD's legendary ring. You tried to give us both. You went with a big flashy crafting system but then restricted all of the choices to force us to fight over what goes where, and THEN you threw "tier" at us with zero thought behind it and were shocked when people were outraged. Pick. One.
I doubt its a year off, I would think not too long after the new x-pack announcement, on the 19th. @sryug
AH needs to be normalized across all servers not 1 big Ah but no reason a base item is 160-200k on some servers and 40 k on others
WoW just needs to get through whatever xpac is being announced and then, (maybe one more.) WoW 2.0, which I think will mostly be an updated engine, (potential!) economy reset, (This has been in dire need for a few years at least now.) Two basic, yet crucial components to WoW surviving another 10 years. I really don't think Microsoft paid as much as they did for WoW to die off anytime soon. (They tried to buy them back in early 2000s.)
So we can trade, we can raid, we can pvp as crossfaction. But we still can't party up and interact outside instanced content...
imo crossfaction trading is basically nothing but cross server trading WILL ruin the entire game ... all mats become the same price across every server at which point everything basically becomes worthless b.c why pay more on this server when i get it cheaper on this server and then it loops around and around and eventually there is no value to the item u were trying to buy ... materials will become actually worthless imagine now u have 200k of say a specific cloth and it holds at 1g a cloth ... now u have 200 million cloth in the same market ... its value is nothing now ... cross faction is fine cross server is a major disaster that imo should be avoided at all costs on blizzards end
*cough* violet hold *cough*
maybe now I can finally get This
