Is Blizzard Planning to Move to Free to Play?

Yes, I know I’m a bit late on this, but I’ve been busy this past week, so sue me. “Recently” (putting quotes around that because what’s recent really depends on who you ask), an item was data mined from the PTR that caused a bit of a ruckus among the World of Warcraft community. The …

Disappointments with Patch 5.0.4

WoWScrnShot_083012_212730.jpg

Well a few days have passed since Patch 5.0.4. dropped and the gold making scene has been…disappointing to say the least. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, Blizzard ruined glyphmas 2.0 (those grinches!) by means of a “bug” (I’m using obnoxious air quotes when I say that just …

To Craft Or Not To Craft Glyphs Ahead of Patch 5.0.4.

On my last post, Mists of Pandaria Stockpile, two readers (farli and Dan) enquired about whether or not I was pre crafting glyphs. I responded quickly but I figured I’d expand on it because not only is the commenting system terrible for longer thoughts, but I figured I might as well make a post out …

Pre Expansion Slump

Yes, yes I know I haven’t written anything gold related, or WoW related for that matter, in way too long. To be honest I’ve still been a bit apathetic towards the game, honestly if it wasn’t for the fact I succumbed to the annual pass, I would have probably dropped WoW by now. But I …

And The Dust Kicks Up

So luckily my Construction Management professor cancelled class today so I was at my computer when 4.3. launched (no really, it was cancelled! I’s gots pics! Hmmm, maybe my prof plays WoW :P). I had completely forgotten about the Tyrael’s Charger I was set to receive since I signed up the the World of Warcraft …

Tuesday Morning Downtime

My Paladin Vqsharix Prospecitng

If all went well at Blizzard HQ Patch 4.3 Hour of Twilight will be rolling out today, we`re currently experiencing downtime to accomplish this (I’m writing this the night before, so if something happened like a rampant virus taking down Blizzard, I don’t know about it). Lots of various things have been going on and …

Pilgrims Bounty and World of Warcraft’s 7th Anniversary

I’m not usually one for orienting massive year long holiday tactics involving stockpiling eggs, cloth, pets or what-have-you, and Pilgrims Bounty is no exception. One of the newer holidays in the game (new enough that I can remember it’s first implementation…damn I’ve been playing this game a while already) it’s the in-games celebration of the …

Setbacks and Time Investments

wlEmoticon-smilewithtongueout.png

Today was supposed to be the day. Today was supposed to be fun. Today was supposed to be the day I set forth for a brave new world, , strike forth from my current server, to find greener pastures at another. This did not happen. I was all set, I had everything packed up, I …

Where Real World Economics Meet World of Warcraft (and then abruptly crash and burn)

Something I’ve noticed from my time crawling the gold blog-o-sphere is that so many ideas and discussions spawn from correlations people make between the ingame World of Warcraft economy and the economy of the real world. And you can’t blame them, so many theories, principles, tactics etc. from real world economics work perfectly, and sometimes …

Blizzard Development Q&A: Disappointing, and nearly non-existent, profession and economic news

Today’s Q&A hosted on the Battle.net World of Warcraft site was the first of what they hope to be many such sessions. While the developers answered a host of mostly class balance questions over the hour and a bit session, very little information was given to give us hints to what the economic face will …
