    At this point I think its fairly obvious why it hasn't gone in. This is not the first expansion where this transition has been made, so I'm finding it really hard to believe that one expansion later they are having so many issues with this. My guess is you don't see it until the DMF is gone.

    Btw I hope the ratio for a stralight ink is a lot more thann 10 to 1. the whole thing has been distorted by the amount of herbs.

    It has been confirmed that the ink trader will be updated in the upcoming tuesday meintenance. What a coincidance that DMF will be over by that time.

    they're 100% lying that this was bug related at all

    this was done to manipulate the economy and appease the folks who cried about losing blackfallow inks. scribes are already making a LOT more than any other profession and when this goes live the profit margin is gonna be higher. if you buy the herbs to mill, you are making about 80% profit per card on average. i'm making exactly 81.22% profit per card and have made one every day, haven't picked one flower.

    this will go live after DMF is gone, watch. that will give DMC time to pile up before the next one and the price will come down considerably. it would take about 5 mins to update the ink trader, with the tool they use to do this, they simply change what is in the inventory of the NPCs and they can even apply this fix to all ink traders since they can just copy one NPCs inventory to the others

    there is no bug though. they were bombarded by people who "didn't know they couldn't trade in their blackfallow ink" and "dmcs are too high"

    starlight inks are selling for 400g per on my realm
    this conversion means they're worth about 35g after the ink trader goes life. that's a GREAT ratio if you look at it this way.

    Nope its a mess. the ink trader should be a smooth transition not a massive economic event in itself. Its no a great ratio if you already have starlight ink. Be better as 50:1. At 10:1 it will make the dmf trinkets a rubbish goldmaker.

    Oh and I disagree it was anything to do with blackfallow ink, vecayse people had plenty of time to trade in. It was to counteract the stockpilers, but the price of herbs has plummeted becayse nobody contemplated here would be so many nodes.

    Its the one thing about the expansion that has bummed me out a bit. I changed mains and the new one was a herb/miner so going in I was actually pleased as I had just planned to sell off everything for the first few weeks til the market settled in. I was insanely disappointed to see just how many were floating around and that instead of stacks of ore and herbs sitting around 250g a stack for a while ( like they did in Cata) they were going for less than 100g a stack in 3-4 days.

    Don't get me wrong I've made some money from herbs and inscription, but the only reason I have made it from inscription is because I had too ( herbs just not selling so needed something to do with it)

    I'm still making a ton of gold from ores/herbs. Yesterday I did my usual set of dailies. Tillers/GL/Klaxxi. Just picking up stuff that appeared in my minimap while traveling around for dailies I got enough ore for 7 stacks of Ghost Iron Bars and milled 19 Starlight Inks which I threw up on the AH. All the bars sold for 300g a stack within an hour and as of this moment, all but 1 ink has sold for 340-350g. No point making cards when most cards are 5k-ish or lower on my server right now anyway. Just sell the inks.

    So I made over 8k gold from my gathering profs in a few hours of play when I was running dailies. If I ever spent a night purely farming, I could make way more.

    Of course I used a Scribe to mill and have an Alchemist so I can transmute to Trillum if that's more profitable. But they're both only level 85 and haven't set foot in Pandaria.

    Boooo.

    Please let it be soon.

    I honestly hope it never goes in. I've made 120k this week from herbs alone.

    Sigh, rolling restarts, there goes the cash cow.

    Restarts are putting them in. I can maybe make 2 extra cards from the inks I have. Still waiting on someone to buy the trinket listed at 30,000g. I hate my realm.
