Ren –

Now have two 120s and two 111s, gotten most of my characters into the city

Still working on effective AOE for subtlety rogue

Still have not resolved missing XP bar but have a workaround (Experiencer)

Started archaeology

Archaeology progress still showing old number system (current level 825), but shows as “Zandalari Archaeology”

Restored Artifacts – no new vendor, not showing up for Legion era fragments (usually current through previous expansion)

Mike –

i328

Want to do mythics this weekend.

Trying to get 330+

Revered with Order of Embers. – yummy 335 gear.

It’s been all rep and rep and rep and gear.

Stalled professions because I can’t make anything decent until I do mythics.

I plan on finishing the other zones over the next few days.

Need more followers

This Week in WoW

Trial of Style started – free transmogs!

Darkmoon Faire starts Sunday

News

BfA sold 3.4 million copies on its first day – franchise record

Does this only count new purchases on opening day, or does it count prepurchases?

Notable hotfixes for the week

Auction House changes – will be discussed separately

Classes

Auction house hotfixes, plus premium 20% extra deposit for tradeskill items. But are the actual numbers going to dissuade sellers?

Wide variety of deposit prices for stacks of 1 vs larger stacks

Remember: only pay the deposit if the item doesn’t sell

Sample items from BfA: Monelite ore, Gloom Dust, Great Sea Catfish – Deposit inflation between 1 stack of 200 and 200 stacks of 1:

Great Sea Catfish – 7.5g to 47.5g – or 633%

US median 24g – lose 47.5g out of 4800, 1% loss

Gloom Dust – 8g to 200g – or 2500%

US median 27g, so 200g out of 5400, or 3.7% loss

Monelite Ore – 1s 30c to 40g – or 307,000 %

US median 48g, so 9600/40, or 0.42 loss

HandyNotes has new modules for BfA treasures and achievement points in zones
