*Info on why I haven't posted in a while to come soon*
I just wanted to make a quick post about some B.S. I read that sparked all kinds of talk a little while back.
When I read those articles, I have to admit, it was the stupidest fucking thing I have ever read on WoW.com. (No offense Mike.) I was not "news worthy/blog worthy" at all. QQ because epic arrows weren't "easy" (an opinion) to come by? Mike even contradicts (one might say he was just explaining both ways to look at the issue) himself in the article.
I just wanted to say, not even 2 weeks after the patch came out, I got 21,000 epic arrows made last night, by someone I didn't even know, with my own mats, and tipped 20g. If we do the math, I paid less than 1 gold per 1000 arrows. I have paid between 5 to 10 times more than that for saronite arrows. Also, if you economists want to factor in the cost of me farming the mats, yeah it might have had a high opportunity cost (like all farming does) but it just so happens that all those crystallized shadow I used I had just saved up over the course of the expansion with out a real use for them. People said this was going to be expensive and it would take forever for people to get honored with that faction and it would be hard to find the right spec'd engineer and and blah blah blah bull shit bull shit.
EDITED TO ADD: I am so full of laughter and anger as I read the Hunter QQ in that thread. It honestly embarrasses me to play a Hunter. I might revisit this topic soon...
