Baww they are trying to stabilize the economy! Blizz is terrible! Seriously, don't you want to be able to make money off your herbs? My miner would love to be able to sell ore for decent prices...
The economy was plenty stable. GI ore still sold for 60+ a stack pre-nerfs, and even GTL was 55g a stack. The only ones whining about not being able to sell are the ones too dumb to make a deal with their server's scribes or jewelcrafters.
Ok, you should get some facts straight. GI was selling for 30g a stack on my server pre nerf, but forget servers, lets look at global, across all servers. GI is going for 52g 61s average across all servers AFTER the nerf. That is all servers, not focusing on mine or yours, taking in the majority of player's experiences and not just those of one server. source underminejournal. google it.
For those who are complaining about Fool's Cap I will state again. The ONLY thing that requires Fool's Cap is agi flasks, and they only require 4 a piece. Fool's Cap gives a bonus when milling, hence they were supposed to be rarer then other nodes...it is simple, farm something else to mill in addition to Fool's Cap. For those who are complaining that you can no longer farm 20 stacks in 15 minutes and the world is going to end, I am sorry, I do not feel sorry for you, Tea Leaves are still plentiful enough to mill at a reasonable rate.
Cata. I remember Cata. I remember farming an hour and getting 7 stacks of whiptail in Cata. And I had plenty to make flasks. And guess what? The mats for flasks are now reduced to 4 per flask, so those 7 stacks an hour makes a heck of a lot more flasks then it did in Cata, doesn't it. Another thread about this. Really.
