    I don’t think Elton John is podsafe music guys. Be careful, don’t want to see you guys sued or something.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Mellius.

    It was a quick decision I made before recording. To be honest, I don’t we have that big of a following to worry about Sir Elton coming after us.

    That being said, I’ll look into the legalness of using clips of music. It MAY be considered *fair use* considering it a 20 second clip. But until I know we are in the clear, We’ll continue to use the CC-licensed ‘Blizzard Blues’ riff we have.

    Just to correct stacalm. even back in BC days I could easily get 3-4 gold for a 20 stack of copper. Gold for gathering professions is very easy to come by. I financed most of my guilds fast flying by having 2 gathering profession.

    Very true Dam. No doubt double-gatherer is the most profitable way to make money on a single toon. My favorite way to make money with professions is with Alchemy and Jewelcrafting. Alchemist transmutes a cheap gem into an epic gem once per day. Jewelcrafter cuts the raw gem into a usable epic one. Profit equals 180G-260G per day. Possibly more if your alchemist is a Master of Transmutation. 🙂 Take care!
