Sweet! Will no longer have to put up with PuG abuse to obtain one!
What this is going to do it make it so everyone will be needing on them....I already got my macro ready....not going though the crap like in LK with getting yelled at for needing on a orb...also going to run with guildmates more cause of this need crap raging that will happen for weeks and weeks.....until blizzard makes it a greed only roll....
I find this a win/lose change. Win for all you people who are not able to roll on orbs (like me on some of my toons), but a lose becuase the crafting proffesions made decent cash off of selling orbs. Now we work for tips, and hope for generous ones. I charged 250g and orb, and that covered my day to day operations (repairs, upkeep, alt donations, etc.)
Hopefully it will be just like the frozen orbs in that no one can roll need!
I actually hope they leave it so that only profession people can roll on the orbs, even if they unbind them.
Thank god. Will be fun and that much easier to gear up alts coming of age. High five to all my Pro Non-soulbound loving peers. Orbs for everyone! *throws a bunch into the crowd, accidentally killing a gnome*
Hmm, I knew i should have kept needing them even on all those dungeon runs even though I never use them... Being nice never pays!
While I agree that they will eventually get undercut to death like everything else, they will always hold a decent value, just due to the fact that its only 1 per Heroic run. You mentioned (Abyss) Maelstrom Crystals. Yes, they have dropped in price like crazy, but then again, you can get 10 or more of them from 1 Z'random dungeon run. My prediction is they will eventually settle at roughly what the crafters sell them for now...250g, maybe a bit more.
I honestly welcome the change and this is coming from a person who has toons who are ALL crafters. I almost strictly pvp so it'll be nice to be able to make some things now that I wasn't able to due to my hatred of pve.
