    Bots (or at least farmers) are back!?!

    So after about a month of very low mat availability (especially herbs, especially Starlight Rose) and prices doubling, I logged in yesterday to see over 80 stacks of SR from multiple sellers (with corresponding lowered prices). Similar extra volume and lowered prices on other mats.

    Bot ban over? Re-subs by farmers? AH manipulation by Blizz? (Kidding on that last one.) Who cares? I filled two bank tabs with what I consider to be half-priced SR and loaded up on a bunch of other stuff. I was feeling unprepared for 7.2, but am much happier now.

    Happy crafting!

    All part of the eternal cat and mouse cycle between Blizzard and botters. It doesn't seem to me like Blizzard has (or intends on developing) any sort of automated system to reliably catch bots. It's like they wait until a critical mass is reached, then ban every one of them at once. There might be some monetary reason for this; i.e. give the botters hope that subbing and botting is worthwhile.

    Either way, bots don't bother me that much so long as my Shaldorei Silk market is untouched. This is also why I don't stock herbs in large quantities...
