So, August is here, and with the beta progressing at a pretty fast pace, it has been decided that now is the time that the guild bank begins making its preparations for going into Warlords. The goal of this post is to inform you all of the process that is involved in getting ready for the next expansion, as well as what to expect during the first couple of weeks of Warlords. As such, I'll just jump right into it.
During the weeks before Patch 6.0 hits the live servers, we will be selling off the following items on the AH:
Gems, Enchants, Food, Raw Mats, Spirits of War.
We will be doing this steadily over the course of the next several weeks. You may continue to purchase items that are still in the bank at normal prices, but once they're gone you will have to either use the AH for whatever you need, or request the services of a guildie. During this time we will continue to provide flasks and potions to the bank as needed, provided we have the mats.
Also keep in mind that during this time we may no longer purchase items directly from you should you wish to sell stuff to the bank. We reserve the right to decide whether or not we wish to purchase your items during this time.
6.0 -> Warlords
During the pre-expansion patch period we will be moving into the final stages of our preparations, and we will sell off all remaining items in the guild bank on the AH.
With this, you can expect to see the guild bank mostly if not completely empty, with plenty of space to store Warlords goodies. In addition, we should have a great deal of gold going in.
We plan to have the bank completely empty for in time for Warlords, while possessing a great deal of gold.
First 2-3 weeks of Warlords
It will take some time for us to determine the market prices for all the various items we'd expect to stock in our bank, and then also stock our bank with said items. Plus, I don't know about you guys, but I will be working on leveling and getting raid ready as quickly as possible, so we won't have nearly as much time to devote to the bank right away. We ask for your patience and understanding.
During this time, unless we know for certain how valuable something is, we will not be purchasing items from you for the bank.
Ideally once 2-3 weeks have passed, the bank will be up and running at full capacity and you can continue to enjoy it and it's benefits. As usual, you can find any up to date information regarding the bank and the prices of items in the various bank tabs and on the bank info thread in the forums.
We appreciate your understanding and patience as well delve into this project and thank you all for helping us make the bank as awesome as it is. You guys rock!
That's it for now guys.
