    So I just finished my first enchanting toon. His enchanting is 355. After going through the huge, painful, expensive process, I took a step back and realized I have no fucking idea how to make money with this profession. I've lurked Trade before and it seems like a lot of people do it for free for people who have mats.

    How do I take my high enchanting skill and make money off it? As a side question, what are the forumlas most commonly requested?

    The new WOTLK info has completely restored my love of my truid and I cannot wait for the xpac to hit. I've built up a reasonable set of gear to help me do some decent DPS as Dreamstate Resto while being able to heal instances.

    Out of Combat Rez?
    All healing spells (Healing Touch) in Treeform?
    No more Snare in Treeform?
    AOE HoT?

    BOOOOYAHHH

    They have to get those mats from somewhere. Make good use of the AH. Aside from that, generally I thought it was in good taste (I know, lolmanners) to tip an enchanter even when they did it for free.

    Most of the gold I make off of enchanting is just selling mats on the AH. If you have another crafting profession you can shard stuff you make and sell everything, else just greens & dungeon drops.

    I do get some from tips, but I can't stand sitting in trade all day spamming so I'm not really making as much as I could on that end. If someone is asking for X enchant in trade, and I happen to be in the city they're in I usually reply, but that's as much effort as I put into selling stuff. Edit - and yeah, I never ask for a tip or 'fee'... But people will pretty much always throw you 5-10g.

    Most commonly requested: Sunfire, Soulfrost, Mongoose, Executioner, Boar's Speed & Stam to anything.

    Yeah, the 20% reduction in mana cost still only applies to HoTs but who cares? I wish this was in now so I can do Bloodboil in Tree and not have to shift out for Fel Rage to cast big heals.

    I guess you can get both of them just a hair above below revered?

    I think that picture is fake because he is exalted with the steamwheelde and revered with the bloodsail

    I don't think it's possible to be exalted with all because of Ravenholt, the Syndicate and the Shen'Dralar

    Hm? Grind out your Bloodsail rep and then free Knot Thimblejack a thousand times.

    Ravenholdt and Shen'dralar are just turning in millions of lockboxes and librams respectively.

    This guy obviously didn't do the Bloodsails, but otherwise he's next to perfect. But, yes, they obviously used "each" when talking about getting exalted factions instead of "all" for a reason. I don't know where people were getting the idea that you had to get them all, that's completely stupid.

    That guy (the second link) must love excruciating grinds. i bet he has a wintersaber mount as well. notice he was a grand marshal. To get that high back then, you picked up exalted in all the BGs as a side effect.

    So...what was up with Light's Hope Chapel in that intro? The interior looked kind of messed up and not how it is currently in game. Think they're going to be whiping out the Argent Dawn there, or moving the quest hub? Or (since I avoid EPL if I can help it) did I mistake that for another location?

    Edit: Also, think we're getting new loading screens for the continents and such? I'm assuming that since that one only showed a dwarf, that it's now going to be random loading screens. Like it'll randomly pick Human, Gnome, or Dwarf loading screen for Eastern Kingdoms if you're Alliance, or randomly pick Undead or Blood Elf if you're Horde.

    Yeah, I was a bit bummed by that. On the upside, they did improve the whole "taming a lower level pet" thing by boosting it to 5 levels below you, but why they couldn't just remove it entirely confounds me. Pets shouldn't need to be leveled any more than Warlock's minions are.

    Oh and on that note, can I get a fucking "FINALLY!" on the removal of that dumbass warlock minion training mechanic. No more having to buy tomes for pets, trying to remember which ones I bought for pets I didn't currently have summoned, and then spend time summoning them just to train the fucking things.

    I hate waiting games like this.

    I have just about everything going to my mailcity account (yes, I know, I should've gone to gmail like 5 years ago), but can't check that at work. So here you guys are hitting F5, whereas I just sorta hang out until 5pm.

    Oh well, at least 5's are involved in both.

    Also, 7.5; hours until The Dark Knight! (more 5's, hooray!)

    Judging by the talents it looks like all tanks can spec for AOE threat abilities and all healers AOE heals. Looks like we could be getting more multimob fights. That's just a guess, but I'd put money on it. At the very least this will hopefully open up options for aoe tanking heavy fights.

    Did anyone see the sick blues from the early WTLK instances? I thought they weren't doing the TBC stat jump thing again?

    F&F already get them of course, and I'm guessing they've sent a batch out to a portion of those who opted in. I don't think they're looking for a level 70 specifically, but you do need to have TBC.

    Probably every few weeks they'll send another batch out based on how much they want to increase the population of testers.

    There's the Blizzcon dealy too, which I imagine applies to wotlk, but I'm not sure about that. Last time they also gave fansites some keys to give out to visitors, they'll probably do that again.

    So the only reason you are paying for WoW right now is that you maybe, might, possibly have a chance of getting into the beta?

    Man go unsubscribe and forget about the beta, do something else with your time if you don't want to play wow.

    Last time I don't think they had an opt-in, so I'm only guessing they'll stagger invites from that. Last time they did find different ways to invite new people as the beta progressed though, and since the opt-in is a large pool of players, I'm guessing they'll pull a lot from that over time.

    I paid one extra month to see if I could get into the beta invites, I'm not crying over one payment of $15.

    Place a bear trap that locks onto the first enemy that approaches, rooting them and causing [RAP * 0.1 + 1575] Bleed damage over 10 sec. Damage caused may interrupt the effect. Trap will exist for 1 min. Only one trap can be active at a time.
    100 Mana, Instant cast, 30 sec cooldown

    When I first saw "Bear Trap", all I could think was Snake Trap with bears....


    Woulda been better...

    Yeah you and EVERYONE ELSE. I was like "omg NOW WITH 30% MORE BAERS!!" We've had this running joke about a Gorilla Trap for like a year now, which is what I immediately thought of. So disappointed. :lol:


    And yeah dude Death Grip is fucking awesome. It's the inverse of a warrior Charging up to things, which is already awesome. Charge but without having to worry about pulling five things nearby. So fun.
