Let’s start this off on the right foot.
Not catastrophically, pitchforks-and-flaming-torches wrong, but not 100% right.
Most, if not all, of the “dead” glyphs did not go away, turn into dust, evaporate, or otherwise become worthless. They were changed into whatever MoP now currently has the same ID that they had in Cata. So the correct action should have been to just stash those in the bank, at worse, and break them back out when the patch dropped.
So, apologies, if you didn’t make out like a bandit on that particular aspect.
Well, moving on.
Otherwise Glyphmas 2012 has been cracking good. I’m sure I’m not making out as well as others, but my goal is to get some sleep and keep some of my soul, so that’s the way it shall be. Two days, around 17000, and not really trying as hard as the server’s resident glyph bandit who seems hellbent on running me off the server. He’s even gone so far as to roll two level 1 bank alts in Darnassus1 and he alternates between them. I’m pretty sure glyph prices on Alleria would be a lot higher if not for his efforts. Well, everyone wins; I sell in bulk, you get cheaper glyphs2.
Even after stockpiling inks before the patch dropped, I went through every one of them before the end of the first day. I’m now out farming for herbs. I HAVE heard that the ink trader still accepts Blackfallow ink, but that’s clearly not intended behavior, and is sure to go away at some point, and hopefully nobody gets punished for exploiting the bug, if bug it be.
The current bonanza is just a preview of day 1 of MoP. We’ll get access to Ink of Dreams, and have a use for Monk glyphs. My suggestion – if you’re willing to take it – is to have your Monk glyphs made already, if possible.
Oh – and visit your trainer! Learn those new glyphs!
