i came home on Friday to find patch 5.0.4 downloading.
Going back to Catacylsm - the pre-Cataclysm patch took away the ability for Ink of the Sea to convert to other inks via the Ink Vendor. That was not critical given Ink of the Sea was still the most popular ink for Inscription.
However, Blackfallow ink is only used for one glyph / 6 scrolls / 1 book and therefore i dont want to be left with many. Indeed, given i can use my Herbalist to gather whiptail i dont want to be left with any.
Hence, i have converted almost all of my spare Blackfallow inks into Ink of the Sea and Ethereal Ink. And i have milled all my Catacylsm herbs.
as of right now, i have:
134 BLackfallow inks to be
converted = 44 glyphs.
1927 ink of the sea = 642 glyphs. Target is done.
ink = 334 glyphs. Target is 350 glyphs
ink = 229 glyphs. Target is done.
ink = 226 glyphs. Target is
ink = 219 glyphs. Target is 350 glyphs
Shimmering ink = 213 glyphs. Target is
ink = 157 glyphs. Target is
i will be keeping an eye on the Auction House - there is a decent chance that Catacylsm herbs are dumped for low prices over the next few weeks giving me a chance to quickly buy them and convert to other inks, if that opportunity still exists.
and i will be keeping an eye on information out there to further fine tune my perparations.
