Windwool Cloth

Does anybody else think the drop rate on this stuff is rather excessive? I'm a tailor and I can't get rid of this stuff fast enough. I've sold 35 stacks. I have 60 bolts and 4 Imperial Silk on me. My bags are always full because of this worthless cloth. Is anybody else experiencing this?

Throw it in the guild bank so people can level up their first aid. But mostly make stuff to DE.

It does seem higher than Embersilk or Frostweave in their respective expansions. I'm selling it on the AH, either too people who are incredibly lazy, or stocking up to help guildies level in the future.

I've been selling it for 20-25 gold a stack. Rather disappointing, normally cloth stacks are a good source of income. I've started to hold onto them, I'm pretty sure a nerf is coming to the drop rates.

I tried selling it on the AH. My first five stacks sold like hotcakes and went for 139g each. When I logged on the next day the average cost per stack was down to just over 17g. Now I just vendor it. Saves me a trip to Org.

I've been sending it to the guild tailor as has everyone else, he doesn't know what to do with it all.

Blizz really killed the mat market this expansion. Cloth, herbs, and ore are all at middle to end of expansion prices already. Only thing keeping gear created from those professions at a reasonable price would be the cd on living steel and those stupid motes.

I ran instances tonight and had my bags full of it by the end of it all. I crafted them into robes and DE'd them for shards. So I guess there's that.

But yeah it seems like they've really overcompensated for the low drop rate in cata. Hopefully once people start getting their hands on decent tailoring patterns it'll have more meaning to it.

Look on the bright side, it'll make levelling alt professions so much faster. And I'm going to ask my favourite question here: why do we need so much gold?

I feel the same way about ghost iron.

In fact, I'm making this post because I had 251 bars to craft and needed something to do lol.

Gods, I hope not.

I prefer to be swimming in crafting materials. Buying it = unhappy me.

You just found the real block on it.

And I like the high spawn rate on ore too.

Considering how you get gem recipes now, I'll need all the darned ore I can get. -_-

It is a different sort of block and probably a more annoying one. People who used to make money off of farming of mats are going to have issues this expansion if the rates don't change. Had guildies who were hoping to make 200k by leveling herb/miners first. They did alright the first 36 hours or so but now it isn't all that profitable.

I love the drop rate. After embersilk and frostweave, it's very refreshing to be able to get this s easily.

Remember theres more cloth around right now because so many people are leveling and having to kill humanoids (and there are LOTS more humanoid mobs than there were in cata) so the amounts available may be off.

They def shouldn't touch it until the first content patch if it even needs adjusted at all, better to have plenty of it than for people to be having to farm forevs just for some cloth when they'll already need to grind their tushies off for spirits.
