Someone Is Sitting On The Glyph Market

Well, I guess the title says it all. I had hoped it was just a fluke, but it's been a week since someone decided to lower glyph prices on my server. I have to admit, I am a bit disappointed... the glyph market on my server had been a thing of beauty, with ten or more glyphs for each class priced above 50 gold on a regular basis. Now I'm lucky if there is one glyph for each class at that price. Actually, I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. After all, the only reason glyphs sell for a high price at all is the sheer number of glyphs and how long it takes to learn them all. Anyone who has put in the time to learn all or most of the recipes can lower the price of glyphs to near the cost of mats, reducing the profits of all scribes and helping everyone else pay a lower price for their glyphs. I'm not angry about it... it actually gave me the push I needed to diversify my professions a bit.

I've been busy for the past week. I leveled blacksmithing on my mage all the way to when the recipes start using cobalt bars, and I now have eternium rods (and other enchanting rods) that I crafted myself on the auction house. I plan to start selling the tanking sets for tanks just hitting northrend and tanks just starting heroics. Also, of course, the belt buckles. I'm hoping that the eternals market dive bombs for a while after 3.3.3 hits, allowing me to stock up mats on the cheap. I wish they would make the skeleton keys not require blacksmithing to use.

I also opened a Thorium Lockbox and found Schematic: Lifelike Mechanical Toad. I still need to do the quest for the Tranquil Mechanical Yeti. I'm pretty happy about the toad.
