Ask Gauss

Happy Easter Everyone! If you don't celebrate Easter I really don't care if that offended you, maybe it offends me that you don't celebrate Easter, did you ever think about that? Anyways, since that will take care of my hate mail for the week I can go on with the post. With it being Sunday you all should know by now that it is Ask Gauss. The post of the week where I just sit back and answer questions, probably because on a Sunday morning there really isn't that much to do. Questions as always were sent in to me, and if you still don't know how to go about doing that I fear for you, and hopefully you don't have any children. Ok, I am done time for the questions.

So with 4.1 soon upon us what are your thoughts on the political situation?

I assume you are referring to the Vol'jin and Garrosh situation. For those who don't know Vol'jin with the revelation of this troll threat has send representatives to Stormwind to try and get the Alliance to help with the situation. He also never asks Garrosh for help and instead deals with it through his own methods through the Horde. Now one could say he is not bothering his Warchief with something that he can take care of himself, but this obviously isn't the case. Anyone who has seen the little conversation on the Echo Isles knows that Vol'jin seeks to see Garrosh fail. He thinks Garrosh is a hot head that will doom the Horde. Frankly, though it is my opinion that when Garrosh took over this may indeed have been the case, but seeing how he reacts in certain situations especially in Stonetalon I tend to think Garrosh is becoming the Warchief Thrall knew he could be.

All that of course has no bearing on the current situation. The Horde situation is hostile at best between the leaders, and when the time comes to head to Firelands and there may need some time for the Horde and the Alliance to coexist to meet the goal of defeating the Firelord, I think situations such as this will make that much more difficult.

Any gold tips for 4.1?

How about a couple?

First off there is a couple things enchanters may like to know.

Enchants that previously required only an item level of 35 or higher, will now require a character level of 25 also and The level 60 enchants from Wrath of the Lich King will now require character level 50 to use. Well this means that people who enjoy twinking are going to replace some enchants. So if you are an enchanter that like to sell old enchants this is something you need to take advantage of because this is a one time chance to get the gold from the twinks who are switching enchants.

For JCs

Crafted epic armor is having gem sockets added. Now we know that crafted epics are i359's. We know that depending on which, we will see unsocketed gear from the very moment that we can log in on Tuesday. Meaning people will need gems for there gear which suddenly has empty sockets. You want to be the ones they buy gems from.

Lastly sell your maelstroms while you can the market value is going to crash with the release of ZG and ZA.

The feature you are looking forward to most in 4.1?

The guild recruitment feature without a doubt.

So that is it for this week hope you all got what you were looking for. The next Reader Post topic is going to be the new feature you are enjoying most about 4.1. As always you have until Thursday night to get the submissions in. Enjoy what is left of your weekend and Happy Easter.
