I read your blog for a few months now and find it rather helpful at times, so i feel obligated to write you about vanishing powders. I would suggest to include them into one of your starter threads as you can buy them in every major city and turn them into gold in no time. At least on my realm it goes for 2.5-4g a piece (following the usual raid-sells curve), compared to 6.4s as a purchase value (no rep). It sells like mad... I bought 40 just to try how fast i can turn them into gold few days ago, within two hours all of it was sold and it wasn't what one would call prime time. I'm keeping the market supplied, but not flooded. Most people don't really know you can buy it from vendor and so the price derives from price of herbs for crafting it, but i expect some kid will flood the market within a month and lower the price to 0.5-1g. Nonetheless, people are lazy so it will always be more expensive then buying it from vendor, thus making it good enough for starters no matter when they join the game.
Some others might have already reported it to you, but just in case no one did...

Thank you both for your excellent tips. Hopefully you all will put them to good use! I have a huge stockpile of suggested tips and I will try my best to continue to get them visibility on the blog when I can. I highly suggest that players also post the tips on the JMTC forums to increase visibility since it takes me so long to publish non-time sensitive email submissions.
