Twinking in BfA will be killed in a coming hotfix.
The ability for level 110+ players to disable XP gains will be removed, and any toons already at that level that have disabled XP gain will find it automatically re-enabled. :\
RIP Twinks. Official comment and source below.
The most common thing to do was have a 110 twink for island carries. You'd use legendaries, your artifact, gear it up as much as you can (mythic ABT carries usually) and gem with BFA gems (up until that was hotfixed).
Then, most classes could pretty much solo islands. Recently been running with a 110 twink Warlock, he just slows the entire island, casts dots and runs around himself. The mobs never reach him and just die off. A whole normal is done in maybe 5 minutes? Brewmaster is also really good too, triples my damage at 120.
This just seems like a "you're not having fun specifically the way we want you to have fun" sort of thing.
Honestly though, this has to tie into something bigger. People were blowing through content by doing this sort of thing, then complaining about the lack of content... The xp stop was never intended to be used in this manner, as clearly stated. Now, I don't agree with the decision, they could have done something like the old BG system where you can only queue with other players who have turned off their xp as well.
TBH though, most were abusing a system put into place. Yes, twink boosted power leveling via island expeditions was an abuse of the XP off system. Yes a good bit of a lot of people's easy gold farm is gone, sure mounts and pets may be a little more difficult to obtain, no you might not get to run through dungeons at greater than mounted speed anymore.... Sounds like we're taking a step back in the right direction to me.
can be obtained once per character, I've completed the required quests and rep on all of my characters and sold this pattern for a good chunk every time. The quest line can be done pretty quick since its from vanilla.影之哀伤
I've been sorting this out slowly, the quest line seems like it will take 6-7 weeks to obtain the 影之哀伤
loot box which contains highly prized items and should net a small fortune. I plan on completing it on 3 characters at once.
Tomes of Illusion
This has been a solid source of income, it's a big shopping list so I have half a guild tab devoted to it. Star rating is for popularity on my server. I believe you need rep from the associated expansion to purchase the recipes.Tomes of illusion spreadsheet
- created by prelux.
Quite the process, without getting into specifics it takes approximately 1550 bars of 幽冥铁块
per Golem with all the procs, there are various methods to obtaining the materials including the farm from MOP, 5 farms produce 4 Golems a month.布林顿4000
- not cheap to make, but has a nice loot table. One character per account per day and has a chance to reward blue Pandaria gems, 小布
(an unobtainable Engineering recipe craft), and the big 上流社会的礼帽
Alchemy transmutes have been really good to me, my rule of thumb is a proc of 1.2, so for every 5 transmutes you get 1 extra. Keep in mind when making 活化钢
, to take into account the proc of both 延极锭
and living steel when factoring your costs.
- 奥金锭: these still sell very well, have for years - they are used for 雷霆之怒，逐风者的祝福之剑
- 燃钢锭: (daily CD) used to make Truegold for the vile of the sands mount. (I don't use this one)
- 泰坦神铁锭 : used to create titansteel bars
- 延极锭 : used to create living steel
- 转化：转土成水: (daily CD) the biggest bottleneck for the most popular tome on my realm.
- Gem transmutes : 源红石 and 日曜石 seem to be the rarest, used for tomes and the panthers.
Obtaining transmute mastery requires levelling vanilla alchemy 1-300, here's the guide I used: 1-300 Alchemy guide 8.1深石之油
: used in the 时沙之瓶
mount, has a cool effect when consumed.
- 魔化源质锭 : a very slow seller for me lately, but they do sell. the recipe (地精的源质熔炼指南) drops from a vanilla raid.
- 泰坦精钢锭 : these sell ok, used for the 机械路霸/机械师的摩托车 mount and some transmogs.
- 幽冥铁块 : for the Sky golem of course.
is used for Sky Golems, 凯帕琥珀
is prospected for gems used in the tomes. The runoff of lesser gems can be crafted into varying rings and amulets to vendor, or combined with 黄金莲
to transmute into the rare gems. Another material prospected is 蛟眼石
, used for the Jewelcrafting mounts.
Pandaria reputation Order of the Cloud Serpent
provides the recipes for the Panther mounts, 图鉴：日长石猎豹
These are hugely popular, I sell one or two a week at exorbitant prices. They are BIS for heirlooms. I'm pretty sure you need rep to get the MOP recipes.附魔胸甲 - 辉煌属性
sells like hotcakes specifically, its crazy how many I sell.
Leather working leg armors from Pandaria like 影皮腿甲片
(this one does not sell so well on my server)
Inscription Shoulder Enchants such as 强效鹤翼铭文
(this one does not sell so well on my server), 强效虎爪铭文
To produce these, 愚人菇
has a 50% chance to provide the required material 雾色颜料
, the rest have 25%, so I will pay double for fools cap. The lesser ink you produce crafts the lesser enchants, which you can vendor for a good markup.
This mount flip has been amazing, I’ve followed it for a very long time so I’m familiar with the price action on my server. Its from the garrison, I expected it to lose steam this expansion but somehow is still a steady seller.
