He goes on to say that the changes went too far, and that they have "no desire" to keep moving in that direction. The problem is they don't know how to fix it quite yet. Hazzikostas understandably says that they don't want to make blanket changes that miss the "real source of the problem," which is exacerbated at levels 60-80 when the leveling curve gets particularly punishing. The sky isn't completely falling though based on data: Hazzikostas says that leveling is 15% longer. In the short term they want to increase experience gained at these levels to soften that blow.
Some players like to try to game the auction house to make gold by buying things for low prices and crafting them into more valuable things, or simply reselling them at higher prices. You can also use large amounts of gold to buy special luxury items like very expensive vendor mounts that carry portable auction houses and repair vendors. Sometimes you can find special mounts that were exclusive to the Warcraft collectible trading card game that was discontinued in 2013, though many of the most desirable ones, like the Spectral Tiger and the Giant Rooster, are very rarely sold on most servers, and go for the maximum price of 10 million gold.
Once you reach 575 you can purchase vendor recipes for the last 25 points. The Blacksmithing recipes are on a vendor in Vale of Eternal Blossoms. You can enter Vale of Eternal Blossoms after completing the questA Celestial Experience (requires level 87). After you completed the quest, you can find Jorunga Stonehoof (Horde) in Shrine of Two Moons and Cullen Hammerbrow (Alliance) in Shrine of Seven Stars.
":" - Any time a step ends in a ":" instead of a "." means that the next step is part of the current step you are on. This generally means the next step should be done while working on the current step. This means every "start working on" or "continue working on" will end in a ":". But this is used with other occasions as well, so keep this in mind.
Something to keep in mind as well is that this will make enchanting materials more valuable, since it is likely most players will now simply scrap their boe greens instead of getting them disenchanted. Also redundant dungeon/raid gear can be scrapped rather than traded to the (guild) enchanter in the run. Less stuff gets disenchanted, meaning there will be less ecnhanting materials, meaning their value will rise. All the more reason to DE rather than scrap as an ecnhanter.
