Blackfallow Ink Still Tradeable in 5.0.4


As noted by Blizzard, the 5.0.4 ink traders appear to require Ink of Dreams as payment in the purchase window when in actuality you can still purchase inks with Blackfallow Ink.

While not totally unexpected this change took a few of us by surprise. In all of our own advice/reporting about the potential change we noted the ink trade lockout was only a possibility.

While this change may make any ink we may have stockpiled a bit less valuable, from all the reports I'm hearing most glyph sellers are making a lot of gold right now so that should help ease the pain.

That said, the UI still visually shows ink trades requiring Ink of Dreams so unless someone tries it themselves or reads Blizzard posts there may be some people who don't know Blackfallow Ink can still be traded in.

Buying Multiple Vendor Items At Once


Today's tip is one that might come in handy if you're buying a lot of ink to stockpile before the 5.0.4 patch on August 28, 2012.

To buy multiple vendor items at one time hold the Shift key while right or left clicking an item in a vendor window. A small dialog will come up and allow you to enter how many items (up to the max stack size) you would like to purchase.

If you're buying large quantities of vendor items you might also try the addon BuyEmAll which allows you to enter a purchase amount over the max stack size. Below is a screenshot of BuyEmAll in action.

My Mists of Pandaria Stockpile? Not Much.



By far the most popular question I've been asked in the last two weeks has been "What should I stockpile for Mists of Pandaria?". Each time I feel that I must disappoint the questioner when I give my answer.

It's not that I haven't given it a lot of thought it's just that I'm not really much of a stockpiler. Never have been. Likely never will be.

That said, read on past the jump for the few items I have decided to sock away and/or wait to sell in Mists of Pandaria.

Strong Evidence of Rampant Item Duplication in WoW


We've heard plenty of circumstantial evidence of rampant "duping" (duplication) of items in recent months. We've heard accounts of cheap Reins of the Crimson Death Charger, Queen's Garnets and Sands of Time from readers, livestream viewers and other bloggers.

The Undermine Journal recently added new "global" item pages that provide some pretty damning evidence that item duplication is indeed happening. Read on past the jump for my thoughts on item duping and how we can react to it.

Testing Battle Pet Cageability and Quality In MoP Beta



There has been much speculation around what would happen to our current pets when it comes to the Pet Battles system being introduced in Mists of Pandaria.

We've seen a blue post indicating that some pets may become "Rare" when caged. Some have done analysis on where these pets come from.

To set the record straight (at least as far as the current beta build is concerned) I wanted to test caging all my pets on the current Beta client (Beta Client: 5.0.4 (15929) Jul 31, 2012) and see what happened. Head past the jump for my (rather interesting) results.

Huge Transmog Shopping List Compiled At The Hatchery



I just wanted to make a quick note here to point people who may be interested in selling transmogrification gear to a post I just complied on The Hatchery.

The post compiles the best transmog shopping lists submitted to The Hatchery by Keelhaul, Farli and EpicPennyPouch along with links and Auctionator shopping lists which were added by myself.

If you've ever wondered what the best transmogrification items to sell were this is the last list you'll need (at least until Mists of Pandaria launches).

Head over to The Hatchery now to view The Definitive Transmog Shopping List Compilation.

Dealing With Perceived Threats To Our Markets



Today's post is my response to a reader who had a problem in their 77-80 Cataclysm Items market with people posting items at prices below their "threshold price" but above their "buying price".

In essence, these sellers were perceived to be selling items in the reader's pricing "blind spot". Head past the jump for our email exchange, possible solutions and thoughts on the importance of constantly analyzing our markets.
