    weeklys not dailys

    Hi all.

    I dont know if this has been asked. If it has please delete/move my post. TY.

    Ive been listening to podcast who speculate that the "Daily hcs being changed to weekly hcs" could also carry over to professions. The thoughts behind it were some players cant log in every day to do their prof. daily.

    Do you all think Blizz would ever do that?

    i couldnt see it working with the JC daily for example. Or if it did... what would it mean for us goblins?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    For the JC daily, specifically, it would certainly make a whole mess of things, wouldn't it? On the other hand, it might level out some of the uncommon gem prices. What would be really interesting is if they applied the concept to profession cooldowns, as well. For example, 7 inscription researches per week. It would definitely make things easier for people that feel compelled to log in at least once a day so they don't miss out on profits.

    I think it would also present an interesting "flipping" opportunity. Supply would naturally align with playtime - ie. weekends, which would mean that any items affected by cooldowns would now fluctuate more along the lines of regular mats. It could be interesting, but I don't even know if it would be possible, from a technical standpoint.

    The main drawback i see for implementing it for professions is that a lot of it's point professions wise is to create a dribble effect for new content and while much of that has passed with the beginning of the expansion effectively over and most things now being common there will be cases in the future such as likely to come with epic gems and more prominently once a full new expansion arrives. They could obviously revert the system back for those instances but then people would be used to weeklies over dailies and it would cause a lot of friction.

    Economy wise it would obviously be quite a upheaval for many markets although that would simply be another change to adapt to and i far from see it as being some sort of apocalypse that is often predicted with almost any change to the status quo.

    The tailoring dreamcloth cooldowns are on a 7 day reset with 6 different dream cloth cooldowns being available (air, chaos orb, life, fire, earth, water). I would like this change for other professions personally for the reasons noted in The Instance. While I personaly can log in everyday and typically do, there's days where I cannot or do not feel like logging in. Most days I probably wouldn't if not for the JC dailies.

    I'm probably way off, but I vaguely remember Blizzard talking about dailies and professions back before Cataclysm was even in Beta testing. I wonder if the reasoning behind having different professions behaving differently right now is their way of testing the waters, with the intention of streamlining everything later on.

    I just hope that JC epic patterns are not obtained through dailies. I'm so sick of JC dailies.

    Instead of dailies Blizzard will have you turn in 4 maelstrom crystals per design to Jessica Sellers.

    That sounds fantastic compared to these [EDITED SECTION] dailies.

    A 300% or more increased server load over 30% of the uptime may also have factored in.

    Well even if JC epic patterns are obtained through dailies, legendary gem patterns should probably be obtained through monthlies.
