In the eighteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we are not panicking about Ghost Iron Ore and the changes to leveling Blacksmithing in 5.2, we buy Battle Pets through the RMAH, we figure out that JCs can make their own Primal Diamonds, we discuss auction house ethics when someone mistakenly lists an item too low, we walk you through using a script to retrieve item IDs from Wowhead, and we realize that it’s time to get organized.

Bitter and Salty is brought to you weekly by Molsan and Sláinte.

The Great Ghost Iron Ore Debacle of 2013

  • Buy and Hold? Who cares; buy and prospect? Panic?!?
  • Blacksmith Leveling Kits
    • What are leveling kits?
      • Leveling a profession from 1-600

      • Takes 5 of each uncommon MoP gems and 1 Spirit of Harmony
      • JCs can make use of the SoHs, but if you have an xMute Alchemist, is this better?

Noob Tip

Marketplace Ethics

  • Email from Postblue (night elf hunter, is there any other kind of hunter?)
    • “I have a question, when you find a market mistake I.E. is it ethical to proceed with flipping the item.  I found and item posted for 1k that regularly sells for 25-30k and was very excited.  The person that made the mistake contacted me in game and explained he simply posted it wrong. He then proceeded to offer me 2K for it back which I thought was low.  After a little banter I declined to return it to him because I felt it was his responsibility and not mine to post his auctions right. What do you think?”

How to Setup Wowuction Broker with Items from Wowhead

__rows = $("#lv-items table tbody tr");

__itemids = "";
__rows.each(function() {
__cells = $(this).children("td");
__itemname = $(__cells[2]).find("a").text();
__itemlink = $(__cells[2]).find("a").attr("href");
__itemids += __itemlink.substr(6)+",";
});
__newOutputrow = $("<div />");
__newOutputrow.text(__itemids.substr(0,__itemids.length-1));
__newOutputrow.appendTo("body");
  • Copy and paste comma-separated list into Wowuction and categorize your items by naming the list (i.e. “Herald of the Titans BoEs”)
  • Update prices on broker sheet and enable email notification

Hey, just listened to episode 16 and 17. figured molsen felt like the tank should be geared first and I totally agree.

But Your plan for the gearing is not optimized so after giving it a fast thought I came up with a easy suggestion.

you would need the best gear on all Your 10 level 80s.

hopefully you are not stacking a class so just split up the group in half, 5 80s with diffrent needs of loot and the other half bring their level 90 and boosts you though it all for gear.

(like at freya you leave the 80s at the middle circle, run inn with the 5 90s and zerg her and out. if you run by water with strider you can manage to pull like zero adds)

after the run is Complete, you swap. the next group of 80s and the 5 90s.

Lately Ive been doing ulduar 10 for the proto drake Mount, we was a monk winder Walker 90 and a hunter 90 survival 90. struggeled only with yogg  +1 guardian =)

I dont know if it tracks flasks or you allready know but cata flasks only require leve 80 =) as the MoP flasks require level 85 (great for leveling)

I hope this is readable and that you get my point =)

Friendly regards from a huge Norwegian bitter and salty fan =)

In the fifteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we get all meta and confused, turn on meters for some dungeon runs, search for cool transmog sets and find nothing but human females, ponder about the next WoW expansion, declare WoWuction better than Undermine Journal for watch list notifications, and put our hands all over the Razer Nostromo.

In the eleventh World of Warcraft podcast episode, we ask if it’s worth it to achieve max level cooking, the impact to the change to Redbelly Mandarin pools with patch 5.1, the Potion of Luck and is it worth crafting and using, synchronizing addons for multiple computers, and the week 3 update to our gold-making challenge.

Bitter and Salty is brought to you weekly by Molsan and Sláinte.

Pandaria Cooking

  • Why train, when its cheaper to buy in AH.
  • Is there a need for Non-Raiders?

Fishing

  • Change to Redbelly Mandarin pools in Jade Forest
    • https://theunderminejournal.com/item.php?item=74860
    • Patch 5.1 removed pools of Redbelly Mandarin from the Jade Forest
    • Overall, price spiked to about 14g each after the patch, now down to about 11-13g (range higher on EU realms: 12g-23g ea avg price)
    • Patch was released on 11/27, and quantity took a dive and keeps falling
    • Can now be found only in Townlong Steppes (Inland, and not many locations) or in Vale of Eternal Blossoms (but pools are shared with two other types)
    • Find one of the spawn locations and fish in open water (1/3 drop rate for RBM)

Alchemy
@Grozlok@bitterandsalty @Molsan What happened to Potion of Luck? It’s gone missing from the Undermine Journal.

@walkstweets@SaltySlainte @bitterandsalty No, not really. Cost of mats is not equal to the return.

Are Potions of Luck worth using?

  • Greater Potion of luck changed to Potion of Luck in 5.1
  • Crafted with one Golden Lotus (down from three)
