We have only just begun, to speculate, on possible ways, to make some gold off this. Maybe.
Transmogrification is coming to patch 4.3! What does it mean for you and your characters. This is a topic that we will continue to explore in the coming weeks, to see if there is some way to make money of what is essentially a feature that combines PvE and RP.
Void Storage is also on the way. YAWN. Void Storage is a fancy word for 'More Bank Space', and not much else.

Despite Ryan trying to be a better citizen of Azeroth, he keeps running into people who buy into the above philosophy.
Welcome back listeners,
This week our hosts discuss what they've been up to in preparation for patch 4.2 Ryan has become a Pokemon trainer, using Petopia's guide to rare and unique pets in Azeroth. Chris has jumped guilds, and advises listeners how to deal with joining a guild that is far more progressed than you are.
If you want to see complicated, here is the Elitist Jerks forum for Marksman hunters. Keep this in mind, the next time some blowhard asshat tells you they can perform the calculations better than Elitist Jerks.
For those who don't believe it, here is the Baradin Hold where the hunter completely owned Pit Lord Argaloth.
Mount Alert: The Winged Guardian goes on sale this week. Not for nothing, but it looks incredible.
