Is there still the requirement to level previous expansions with the new system? TMK, old enchants don't sell fast. Unless the changes to leveling have caused old enchants to start selling (anything for a little more dmg and speed, right?)... For the health of the game I think this is a good change but I wonder why anyone would go back and level previous stuff, save goblins and completionist.
Crafting (Blacksmithing, Tailoring, Leatherworking) – When it comes to endgame, I always found crafting to be very dependent on the level of gear you can produce. There have been times when the crafted gear was competitive with the gear you could get in the open world and during those times I always had success. Then there are the dead times when the game gear vastly out levels anything you can craft. There still is time before BfA launch for the devs to make more changes, so I am not sure where crafting is going to come out this time. Whatever they do, I have always made some gold selling transmog and Blacksmithing has shined in this area for me. Many folks don’t take the time to collect old rare recipes which can leave few competitors. Transmog never sells fast, but it can work.
I got a lucky 350 BoE drop just after hitting 120 about 48 hours after the expansion launched. Was able to sell it for 400k. I had chosen an alt on a different faction as a main this expansion, so I was glad to have more than the 25k I’d previously had. A couple days later I saw another 350 on the AH for 50k and flipped it for 300. That plus farming Monelite Ore as I do World Quest has me sitting on about 1mil.
"Since [patch] 7.3.5 we’re happy with the overall pace of leveling, he said. "If you’ve chosen to start a brand new character right at the end of an expansion, getting a character fully leveled up and geared up to complete endgame content before the expansion ends, there’s always going to be some time pressure there. That’s just part of the nature of choosing to do that at that stage in time."
I guess I'd put the blame on the amount of posts I read every day and the attitude towards new goblins, which is "You should do this". What they need is a proper education in gold making, they need to understand the process, and not learn about new sources, cause then every time a source dries up, a farm is nerfed, they come back here to ask the same question. "This died. What now?" or "I'm at 500k, what now?" And that's why I'm annoyed. But then again, to each his own, I'm not the one in need of help...
