There was a version of MTS available for Vanilla. I have it installed. GFW addons were also available for tracking pricing of crafting materials using AH databases. I have a catalog of thousands of addons for 1.12.1 client that gave all kinds of functionality, so stating that modern addons are "too powerful" indicates that you weren't around for the original game or weren't aware of the scope of addons available at that time.
The WoW Classic economy is going to be so exciting and unpredictable. I had a debate in a YouTube comment section about a week ago whether bags or consumable like potions/flasks and even bandages would be a better gold making strategy. Yes everyone will want bigger bags, but there are only so many bag slots for each character. I think bags may well be king for the first 6 months or so depending on how strong Classic interest may be, but past that I think the need for potions, etc for PvP and raiding will overtake bags as the higher volume market. Add Alchemy Transmutes to the mix and I think that’s the better long term strategy. Of course all that depends on how strong the raiding and PvP scenes prove to be, and of course no one knows if they will flourish or sputter. In my opinion though, the smart play is to back the theory that Classic will have longevity. If it does, you will come out ahead. If it somehow fades or fails then it won’t really matter all that much anyways.
The problem with bags is, unless im mistaken, the recipes are not hard to come by, and the materials are common. Which will likely lead to bags being the cost of mats on the AH, or even less. I'm talking just regular bags though, you may be talking about high tier mooncloth bags and such. We'll see on those, but I suspect making armor with mooncloth, at least in the short-term, will make more sense.
You cannot play Classic and Retail at the same time. Dumb -.-
I still have Black Dragonscale set in my hunter's bags! Including the belt and boots they were locked behind Thorium Brotherhood rep grind and mats from BRD/UBRS/MC.Gonna be a long road to ride for those again in Classic :D
Yes, I was mostly thinking about Runecloth and Mooncloth bags. There were a few “rare” recipes but mostly they just let you make them in different colours. The smaller/lower tier bags will end up being pretty cheap in short order no matter what else happens. I’m sure the value of Mooncloth for gear will affect the bag prices, but in either case there is a much more limited market for one-time purchases. The margins on high end bags and cloth gear might be better, but you can sell potions to the same person over and over again. Add in the Alchemy Transmutes and I think it’s still the better option long term. So like I said, if Classic endures, I believe consumables will be the way to reap long term profits.
205k token price What is going on ? cmon blizzard
Hmm,I don't agree about there not being gold sinks in classic. Respeccing is a massive gold sink, and you pretty much have to respecc often if you play PvE and PvP even somewhat seriously.
Dumb? You can only do one thing at a time anyway...?
