Obligatory post is obligatory.
So, not 24 hours after I talk about if Blizzard should merge servers, information comes flooding in about 5.4, among which is news about plans to merge servers in so called virtual servers. Which makes everything I said in that post wrong. Herp derp.
So what else is of interest to us in these notes?
All permanent item enhancements provided by Enchanting, Engineering, Leatherworking, Tailoring, and various vendors and quests are now able to be applied to items of any level. The effects of these enchantments will be scaled down to the level of the player using the item.
That’s a nice change, should provide a small increase to MoP enchants and kill the market for old world enchants. I don’t think many people get much gold out of such markets, but if you are, bail out now.
It looks like Leatherworking, Tailoring, and Blacksmithing are getting new PvP recipes, gated behind new daily cooldowns. I guess Blizzard like that in 5.2, and are repeating it this time.
I don’t foresee any major demand spikes outside of normal patch behaviour, the gating of the new PvP pieces are going to keep demand for their materials low and the crafted gear is going to be the same quality as current Honor gear, so there won’t be any large rush for these items.
So, until we get more information, business as usual.
