I knew that the launch of Cataclysm would be an expensive time for me. I had decided to go for a realm first, mainly just because I'm a sucker for achievements. I ended up getting realm first illustrious enchanter, which cost me something in the neighborhood of 50,000 gold. I also decked out my first level 85 character, my protection warrior, in as much BoE gear as I could find. Despite that, my gold kept going up, because I was making an absolute fortune off of crafted PvP gear and prospected, uncut gems. I think my high point was somewhere in the neighborhood of 300,000 gold. But then I started leveling my other two characters, my mage and my priest, and I started spending on them as well. Long story short, they're both decked out with quite a few BoE epics and they were both close to ilevel 350 right when they hit level 85, but I'm now close to broke. Well, broke might be an understatement, but I have about 40,000 gold left, which is awfully low for me.

Blizzard appears to have reversed their stance on Tol Barad and nerfed the honor gain for an attack from 1,800 to 360. A quick look around the forums shows that there are all sorts of opinions about this, but what I'm concerned about is how it affects the markets. What I wrote in a previous post about how the Tol Barad changes could be used to make money is now not as relevant, as we won't have huge numbers of players getting 1,800 honor from a win and rushing off to buy, gem, and enchant a piece of PvP gear. So how will these changes play out on the auction house, and how can we use them to make money?

Nothing about making gold in this one, but I figure a fair number of people seem to read this site, so maybe it might work out. My guild, Reason of Korgath, is recruiting for a raid group that runs Tues/Wed from 9pm-midnight Pacific time. We'll likely add a third day once we pick up a few more people. If you're looking for a guild, check below the break for more information.
