You See Connected Realms, I See 11 More Alts



It looks like my realm is planned to be connected in the future. How do I feel about this? For an altoholic like me it's kinda like Christmas!

A few of the things I get with a new realm connecting to mine:

  • Ability to level 11 more alts while keeping them in my personal guild.
  • Use alt leveling to level my Horde guild.
  • Finally use all the heirlooms I've collected over the years.
  • More alts with daily profession cooldowns to feed my main crafting alts.
  • More buyers for my items.
  • Fresh virgin inventory to buy in some of my favorite markets.
  • Did I mention more alts?!

I don't fear the connection anymore. I welcome it.

How has your connected realm been since connecting?

Oct 21 Connected Realm Population Changes


Yesterday we did a post entitled New Connected Realms - Population And Auction House Analysis where we analyzed some the statistics and economies of a few of the realms that became Connected Realms today.

In today's follow-up post I wanted to do a bit more analysis on the realm population of not only the Connected Realms but also World of Warcraft realm populations in general.

While analyzing the connected realms I was intrigued by what Blizzard be thinking when deciding to connect realms. Read on for more.

New Connected Realms - Population and Auction House Analysis



Since first hearing about "Connected Realms" many of us gold-makers have wondered if and when our realms would become connected and how that would effect our economies.

Tomorrow (October, 21 2013) some of the first realms will become "Connected Realms". This means that for all intents and purposes all essential game systems, including the auction house, will be shared between the Connected Realms.

We spoke with Blizzard Technical Director Marco Koegler about connected realms in The Power Word: Gold Podcast Episode #071. Back then Marco let us know it would be a manual selection process. Head past the jump for more data and analysis.

"One market I have never really left is the Mysterious Fortune Cards, and though in Cata, the Fortune Cookie version made me tens of thousands, I have found that the basic card itself will still roll just fine in MoP."

RSS Feeds For /r/GoldMakingDiscussion


If you're like me you love reddit but it can be hard to stay up to date on all your subreddits. In order to help myself stay up do date on the /r/GoldMakingDiscussion subreddit I decided to make an RSS feed for it.

This allowed me to not only add it to my RSS reader (Feedly) but also the the Power Word: Gold blogroll (in the right sidebar) and build an IFTTT recipe to email myself when a new item is posted to /r/GoldMakingDiscussion.

Head past the jump for two RSS feeds that will allow you to subscribe to get updated on new posts to /r/GoldMakingDiscussion.
