How Was 4.0.1 For You?
That, above, is a picture of my bank alt’s backpack. As an experiment before 4.0.1, I put all his gold in the bank. After very limited buying and selling, that’s how much I have now, as a direct result of 4.0.1, aka: Glyphmas! So I made about 9500 gold, not counting expenses.
Here’s my personal recap:
First of all, I don’t have a Scribe. I have no toon with Inscription. How did I make so much? Well, the night before 4.0.1, I went through my AH and bought any glyph that I could find at 5g or less. I was working alot in real life, I didn’t have time to properly prepare, and didn’t do anything before about midnight server-time the night before the patch. We recorded a special Call To Auction, then I went and bought any cheap glyph. That was it. I spent about 1,000g total and took about 15 minutes. I didn’t make as much money as Euripides or Markco, but for the amount of time I invested, I’m pretty happy. Glyphs that I bought for 4g were re-sold for 150g. Good times!
Other winners: uncut gems, infinite dust, eternal life, and eternal belt buckles. The belt buckles I owe entirely to Markco- he said they were going to be hot and he wasn’t lying. Due to a weird market spike, I was able to sell buckles that I bought for 18g (fyi: I don’t have a Blacksmith either, I just bought them cheaply) for 75g each. 30 buckles later, I’m very happy with my investment.
I didn’t have many losers, but the lack of a change to the various epic gem transmute timer cooldown(s) has made my Eternal Fire prediction inaccurate, but that’s about all I can think of. They’re selling like they usually do, but not in spectacular fashion at all. Another loser was the complete lack of Auctioneer, which means I was still figuring out Auctionator and bought a few stacks of Saronite Ore for 75g by mistake. I also was killed while attempting to solo Bloodlord Mandokir because I didn’t understand my stats and abilities. That was surprising, and hasn’t happened in a while, but that’s about all that jumps to mind in terms of bad things that resulted from 4.0.1. So, all things considered, I can’t complain.
But I digress… what I really want to know is how did you, Dear Reader, do in these past few days after 4.0.1? I want to know. Please put some feedback in the comments to this post. I’m sure we all did well, but I’d like to know how you did in specific markets. Thanks in advance for all feedback!
