The Loot Council- Economic Stimulus Edition

The Loot Council is regular column highlighting interesting and informative posts from around the WoW finance blogosphere.

Warcraft Econ has an excellent tip for the PVPers out there. They’ve discovered what they say is an otherwise undocumented new way to spend honor points in patch 3.1- Blue gems can now be bought and sold for honor. Finally, a bailout for those PVPers with their honor points capped! Hurry, because as more and more players discover this trick the gems will fall in value.

The Greedy Goblin talks about Moral Hazard, the social risks inherent in bailing someone out financially. Given the obvious correlation to the current situation in the real world global economy, this ends up sparking an interesting debate amongst his readers so be sure to check out the comments section as well.

Since we’re talking bailouts, Looking for Group made us literally laugh out loud (as they often do) when we read Richard’s strategy for economic stimulus.

WoW Insider’s Insider Trader has a nice roundup of the 3.1 glyph market and the boost it has provided to scribes. The article is both comprehensive and concise and an excellent jump off point for any profit-minded scribe.

Just My Two Copper continues their series on farming mobs for profit. This time with an AoE location suggestion that could prove an effective way to generate gold for AoE DPS classes.

The Pugnacious Priest doesn’t mind sharing but this is ridiculous. All gatherers in WoW are (unfortunately) familiar with this type of behavior but not everyone gets such a good screen cap of the incident. Let this be a lesson to you… Don’t cast your line in another man’s pool!

Note that the above blogs are not listed in any particular order outside of the way the team brainstormed them. Please let us know if there are any sites that you feel we should feature and we will do so in a future edition of The Loot Council.
