Over Jon’s Shoulder #1: Glyph Frenzy

Patch 3.1 Brings Explosion of Demand for Glyphs

 

First of a new series of video, raw and unedited :) Watch over my shoulder as I play the auction house, and explain what I’m doing… and why.

Today, the action is in glyphs, thanks to the explosion of demand for glyphs caused by:

  1. new glyphs introduced in patch 3.1
  2. dual specialization, so serious players need twice as many glyphs as before
  3. changes that buff quite a few pre-3.1 glyphs

So that all adds up to high prices, right?

Well… not exactly. While there are way more glyphs moving through the auction house this week, and demand is stronger than it has ever been before, the buzz about glyphs has also brought a lot of Scribes (Inscriptors?) into the auction house. And it seems like many of them haven’t go a clue what they’re doing.

And the result is: prices all over the map, and a lot of hair-pulling amongst those of us who are regulars in the auction house, and steady traders in glyphs.

Look over my shoulder to see how I’m handling this weirdness, and I’m sure you’ll find a few ideas you can use yourself for profit and gold.

Some of the key things to keep in mind…

  • You can’t afford to let inexperienced sellers kill the market with their drastic under-cutting: fight back!
