Mailbag time: the February call for questions! (And other miscellany)
Zekta and I are getting back on track. I have an idea for a post, but as I started to write it and it turned out a little bit… whiny! So I’m going back to what I know best, which is answering the questions you have! If you want a particular column written, let me know. I don’t have a P3P e-mail yet (we’re working on it), but until that time, just put them in this post as comments. Ask me anything about WoW gold, warrior tanking, grammar… whatever you like! If I can answer it, I will. (If it’s about inscription, it will probably be Zekta. I don’t like that much math in my fun!)
Also, re: the last post. Thanks for the replies- it seems that most people are keeping the hilt. I can’t blame anyone for keeping it; the quest is a fun quest (especially if you liked the Burning Crusade content) and the reward is good for most classes/specs (tanks, arms warriors and others being a glaring exception).
I’d like to say, however, that I believe the Primordial Saronite and Hilt will lose value fast, especially the Primordial Saronite. With the inclusion of ICC weekly quests, frost badges are more available than ever, especially for raiders.* The members of any 25m guild/raid run that can clear the content and do the weekly will be swimming in frost badges. The Shadowmourne quest (and it’s required 25 primordial saronites) will keep demand high for longer than similar items in the past (ie: frost orbs), but not much longer. Primordial saronite will hold value for another month or so (that’s my guess), but by that time should be well downhill.
(*I would like to note that I think the ICC quests are, at this point in time, a case of the rich getting richer. As a member of a newly-formed 25m guild that is struggling with Deathbringer Saurfang, the quests are just too much for us now. But the next level of guild above mine, which is already clearing more content and getting more badges… now has extra badges? Maybe this will have a trickle-down effect, or maybe it’s aimed at making that shadowmourne quest more achievable… but I’m not sure. I am curious to see the end result.)
That’s all for me! GL everyone!
