I think it s way too big gap between Legion and BfA in terms of mission table on other hand prices on AH are pretty much the same it drains casual player stock so fast. In some countries this is only way to pay in game services I think this can lead to some casual players stop playing in inability to get their subscription
Looks like I need to up my Island farming game! Herbing/Alchemy just isn't as profitable as it used to be on my server.
I've never personally made a twink specifically to run island expedition, but have done myself quite a few boosts on healer-consumables weeks. As a discipline priest, I can quickly chuck on a Holy Prism, proceed to pull the whole island on my chaffeured chopper, then holy nova everything to death :) lots of fun too. Sadly still no mountsyet, pets only :S
I thought Island Expeditions were dead? Ever since they bumped up the drop rates the items you get from IEs dropped drastically in my realm, and they barely ever sell. The only thing I use them for is leveling alts but it's such a slug. Let's hope 8.1 shakes things up in the economy, since the most effective way to farm gold in my experience is BOE farming, but it's so boring.
I really love the idea of farming gold via island expeditions. Its way more fun than other methods since you are always excited to get some mount, pet or transmogg that you want to keep for yourself. In addition, it is way nicer to level your twinks via island expeditions and pvp than via questing since you actually do something that your main and whole account benefit from.
I really like the idea of farming island expeditions it's less monotonous than boe farming, or gathering. On my server prices seam to fluctuate based on the available invasions so sitting on items can get me a better sale price.
I really dont understand why they gutted the gold making on professions. It really is quite bothersome to me.
That sounds good and bad at the same time tho. Finally Island Expeditions will have more use to it. And more fun too to run. On the other hand, proffessions now feel even more useless then before. :(
Ive farmed expeditions for pets, mog and mounts, but it mostly depends on the islands available. Like ill always farm when theres vrykul islands available for the plate set and the 2h
Boosting for gold with island expeditions does sound like good fun, not sure how expensive it'll be to twink a DH though. it'd be nice to know if somebody could link a good twinking guide as my only twinking knowledge goes back to the glory days of pvp twinking in the 19 and 29 brackets!
Gobineer seems like an interesting addon, if I didn't already utilize TSM. I am going to also throw my hat in the "disappointed with money from professions" corner. It seems like there's almost no reason to have a profession, other than Alchemy/Enchanting.
THE GOLD APOCALYPSE IS UPON US, ALL IS DOOMED, AS THE GUY I MET ON A STREET CORNER ONCE MAYBE INFERRED. The masses will flop around like fish, completely helpless to do anything but lie on the ground and mourn their grave misfortune! It's all over, CLEARLY! The sage on the sidewalk even had irrefutable evidence, he didn't even realize; The fool. If he'd just simply triangulate the distance between the bottle of vodka he was holding, his one tooth, and the 20 dollar bills he stitched together to make a blanket, he would of realized that it made a very specific pattern that when deciphered held a secret message. Taking the initiative for truth he was too blind to comprehend, I drew the pattern onto the sidewalk and took a picture of it (I keep chalk on me at all times for I AM A GENIUS like that guy from good will hunting or whatever and sometimes I brain blast my unfathomable knowledge all over whatever is closest to me... BUT I DIGRESS). I put the image into photoshop, reversed it, inverted it a few a times, and after changing it from a .png to .jpeg IT OBVIOUSLY shows the message "the mayans were right, no more gold ". IT'S PRACTICALLY WRITTEN IN NEON! Well, I guess I might as well throw out all my valuables, delete my bank alts, and live like the hopeless mongrel that I am. Oh how unfortunate of a soul am I.
I have farmed quite a few IEs. I got a few transmogs and pets, but nothing major. I do plan on starting again, as there is not much else to do for me atm. I'm not raiding or doing mythic dungeons. I still hope for one of the mounts. Professions or gold making in general is less fun atm :(
The concept of tri-boxing Islands and just solving them on one char sounds wild to me! Now and then we almost lose with 3 players - how can one solo the whole thing? Especially when Chauffeuring around to pick up all the trash - that is usually a sure wipe in PUGs - am I doing something fundamentally wrong or are some people just OverPowered?
I'm impressed, no advert for TSM this time round.
i gotta check out goblineer
My favorite auction house addon is and likely always will be Auctionator. I don't post tons of auctions, so when I do, Auctionator makes it convenient. Nothing fancy, but it works.
"PvP/PvE weekly gold carries + Island Expedition Boost carries."You really think the average player is buying a bunch of carries every week? That seems like a dubious proposition even in the gold-flush days of Legion, let alone with all the deflation and gold drought in BFA. There are clearly enough people buying for carries to remain profitable, but they go for enough that you don't actually need many buyers to make a substantial amount.Absent some actual evidence from ErgoNonSim I'm calling baseless speculation-to-outright lies on that point.
I really wish there was an easier way of doing this solo. Or at least duo. I'm not a fan of these IEs to begin with and if I just want to farm them, I'd rather not deal with randoms. :/
Run 700 Islands without seeing any mounts. Probably saw about 2/3 of the pets (not including duplicates) in that time. Waiting for 8.1 changes to run islands any further except maybe a week with pirates as the main island denizen since that is a good week for Squaks farming.
