What's going on in Goblin Land?
WoW-GPS Shutting Down?
It's a sad day in Goblin Land. @Kathroman, creator of WoW-GPS, accomplished goblin, and long-time moderator of our forums, announced yesterday that he has no plans to develop WoW-GPS any further. Our blog section isn't exactly super visible, so I figured I'd give it some exposure here.
WoW-GPS has been one of my favorite gold-making tools since its launch in 2012 (yeah, it's been 3 years!). The Crafted DE module, for one, remains one of the most creative and unique tool I've had the privilege of working with. In fact, it's still fully functional and relevant today! Give it a whirl, you never know what you'll discover.
Now, it would be criminal to let WoW-GPS die off without any effort on our end to keep it alive. Kathroman is open to the idea of handing over the project, so shoot him a PM if you're interested. Should hosting expenses be of concern, let me know and I'll help cover those costs.
Feel free to discuss this further with Kathroman in his blog post. At the very least, drop by and thank him for giving us the great tool that is WoW GPS!
Ayssa's Profession Crafter Spreadsheet
Bad news should always be paired with good news. That's where @ayssa comes in.
Over the past few years, @ayssa has been quietly racking up reputation points with awesome contributions throughout the forums. That includes the newly released Profession Craft Spreadsheet
We've seen our share of spreadsheets throughout the years, there's no doubt about that. But this is something else. I haven't seen an extensive spreadsheet like this since Pliaksi's Goblin Crafter back in 2011.
Ayssa's spreadsheet features profession craft analyses, a full garrison spreadsheet, and a super neat server transfer sheet. The latter helps you find items that can be moved profitably from one server to another. As far as I know, it's the first spreadsheet of its kind!
You can check out the original thread here. Make sure to drop ayssa some rep while you're at it.
Elen is still MIA
As a quick closing note, our friend Elen is still MIA and has not been active online since El's Anglin went offline several months ago. The nature of this disappearance is still unknown, but for now it's best to assume Elen has moved onto greater things.
Elen; if you're reading this, I'd like to thank you on behalf of this community for giving us El's Anglin' (and much more). You made the game we love so much better.
Or as they say; so long, and thanks for all the fish.
