Okay, so, here’s the thing:
I don’t flip, undercut, scam, or anything. I’m not a goldmaker, I’m actually quite poor in WoW (335k across all characters). I sell some BoEs to hopefully make a bit of gold on the side as a hobby. Everything I sell is something I gathered myself.
- I logged on, posted 25 BoEs.
- Logged out for 20 minutes.
- Logged on, started post scan for another 25 BoEs I have. At 22 scans (I had not posted anything this session yet, it was just searching to grab the prices), the speed went from 1 scanned/sec to 1 scanned/5 sec.
From there, scan finished, I started posting. Each piece took 3-5 seconds each to post. Typically they take about 1 second.
Keep in mind, I hadn’t posted more than 25 items before it slowed me to a snail’s pace. So it was counting searches in the restriction limit, and restricted my posting before I posted a 26th BoE.
What is being communicated: The WoW devs dislike that people collect items for the purpose of making a profit, even if it’s less than 100 items.
The WoW devs dislike that people use addons to make mundane tasks 3-5x faster.
Am I being punished because one can’t post BoEs in the hundreds like mats and consumables can be?
Are those who post 2,000 herbs at once not being hit by this, but me, who posts 75 BoEs that I farmed up on my own being punished? Why?
Are you communicating that using TSM to speed up the posting process is unwanted? That you’d rather I post each of my 75 BoEs manually one at a time?
Are you telling me not to sell BoEs at all as a way of making a little bit of gold?
And, yes, it’s a little bit of gold. I make less than 200g/day. I guess that’s not much and I should just vendor these things, or hang onto them until the expac launch. But it’s been fun to have a hobby on the side from dying to Mythic Carapace every weekend.
Herbs, mats, BoEs; all of these items are wanted, collected, and used by the playerbase. I guess I just don’t see why 25 posts is the cap when you take into account item price scans and include those, as if I’m posting twice the number that I actually am.
~50 interactions is impossible?
Separate searching/posting counts, if what I assume about searching being counted with posting is true.
Eliminate this change. It has made mostly everyone unhappy. Many of the changes made to the game recently and in alpha have been good for players’ fun and ease of getting things done in-game, and I was starting to feel hopeful for the future of WoW. Y’all have been listening intently to feedback on the alpha forums and making endless healthy, fun changes for everyone! This has soured the game quite a bit for me.
