They're low on a relative basis but anything over 50g a stack is pretty good. Most of my realms are still chugging along at 75-150g/stack.

There are still gross inefficiencies right now. Most of them being in the enchanting market with the ability to convert materials (especially Essences) in certain directions. Sha leather to Exotic leather hasn't been fully flushed out and neither has cloth/bolts and prospecting of gems. Enchants are beginning to move which is nice so establishing your market price is important.

It's still been a gold bonanza. You have to do a little more work than we did in Cata but the profits are still there.

Sold 2 Living Steel to a buyer who offered 2500. Market price was around 2800 a the time but not selling, and the mats are 750g (250g per stack of Ghost Iron Bar, 2 ore is about same price as bars atm so I don't bother smelting), so making 1750g a bar, not bad.

same on my serveur : massive raw mat at AH while customers are not yet here (the hardcore lv90 ready to raid are very few while they almost all know in their guild the right people to get cheap stuff)

i've bought large stock of ore, around 40k,(all stack under 220po) but not yet any profit in JC and enchant. i xp rather than relist on AH
now ghost iron ore is still around 10-12 po for several day now and still many available
JC : this week end, i've bought all nicer gemms below 200po (around 15k), hope i will get some ROI on it
enchant : market is low. i'm not enought confident to buy all & relist (shuffle can kill me if ore go down)

i find herbs quite expansive : around 6-10po with large large stock on AH (15pages+)
while market not yet ready to buy flask & shoulder enchant (and the first price for it is quite low, i've bought all shoulder enchant below 500po and relist 1k)
i feel very unconfortable with Inscription as glyph market is dead for long (many compet, glyphs are around 50po - margins is too low to be interesting for me)

Large dump of mats on my server, ore is selling decently, but it's not the bonanza that we had in Cata, due to longer time to farm, gates on crafting, and I think less crafting alts. I've been selling some ore, but buying herbs as I can't be bothered to try to level an herber right now while still leveling my mains.

Leather is a real dissapointment. Spent 2 hours skinning on Sat, got 2 of the Hides, 4 stacks of the leather, and 20 stack of the "scraps", only the regular leather sold, far too many skinners out there, prices were way down expect for the hides, but no one is buying those. (Maybe few LW left?..)

As soon as my spriest hits 90, the hunter will go back out to level more, mostly by mining. I saw 5-6 trillium nodes out leveling, so I have an idea where they are now.

Looks like the real money this expac might be later on with the living steel transmutes, flasks, and JC. There's too many people out farming this go around, and the SoH are slowing things down.

Another thing.. looking at the price dumping, this may also quickly be the expac where I post on Fri, then stay the hell away from the AH until Tuesday. Too many goobers that undercut by 50% or more just to get a quick buck. Really.. I was selling Ghost Iron Dragonlings at 1150, and a few goobers came along and lowered the price to 350. Why? Even if you are making them to level, you still have to wait a little bit for them to sell, dumping the price because they are not selling like the gems did when LFR first hit doesn't mean they won't sell. People are idiots.

I've got cloth coming out the wazoo. I managed to cap Tailoring, Enchanting, and First Aid prior to lvl 90 with the amount of cloth I had obtained. Now I've taken to converting it to bolts just so I can save bag space. Currently some of the PvP gear is selling decently (500g for bracers, 750g for belts, 1k for gloves, since I've been the only person posting them.) Not much of the rest has been selling, so I'm guessing those are the big "holes" for clothies at the moment or not as many people crafting them for whatever reason. It's a nice profit margin considering the bolts are ~20g each and cloth was ~1g each last time I checked it. 4x bolts (~80g or ~20g if you pick up the cloth) for 1 pvp piece to sell at 500g+? I'll take it.

Someone crashed the enchanting market, most new enchants are 10-20g a piece... some are even less than 1g! (160 haste to gloves)

Also the green boes are 10-20g each.. not worh it..

Longer time to farm? Are we playing the same game? I can get around 100 ore without really farming just from doing The Tillers dailies. I have to stop myself from hitting every yellow dot on the map or else I'd never get the quests done.

What professions have gated crafting? I've leveled my alt JC to 600 from ore gained while leveling my main, alt alchemy to 600, alt tailoring and enchanting to 600 from BoEs and cloth gained while leveling my main, alt inscription to 600 and my main's engineering to 600 and that took a while mainly due to the trillium bottleneck.

If anything professions are way too easy to level compared to Cataclysm requiring many fewer mats combined with only one primary ore type that is killing the ore market. Herb market will probably kick in in a week or so when raids open up.

This...

Yesterday took me forever to finish the Tillers dailies because I was mining and collecting blue items, I forced myself to stop and go to bed when I delivered over 50 blue rep items and had some 15 stacks of ore which I kept collecting because because I couldn't do two steps without finding a node, or a dirt mound.

Also, I wish I could nuke the Valley from orbit to extinguish those vermin, pray that you don't aggro one, or a whole fraggin' field will come after you. Vermin are Murlocs v2.

sigh... what would a day be without flex disagreeing with everything you say.

Compared to Cata launch, it is slower. It's also somewhat time dependent. Vot4W is certainly the prime mining spot, but you only need one or two 90s flitting around to not make it worthwhile, especially with the dropping prices.

And by gating, sure you can max your professions. BFD. But with many of the major items gated by rep requirements, SoH, and cooldowns, demand isn't where it could be.

I agree with you 100% on the 'gating' issue Hala. What a PAIN IN MY ASS that I need SoH's to craft the good shiat on my BS/Engie who will not be leveled any time soon.

FYI - Insciption is the lamest shiat to lvl this time around. I spent 400G to get the inks and lvled him in 5 mins. haha LAME SHIT!

See, that's the thing, you can max inscription, but that doesn't get you anything. The money is in the DMCs or in non-trained glyphs. Both of which are going to be a long process.

My spriest is 89 and has for dang SoH right now, need a bunch more just to make stuff for that toon.

Every place is a prime farming spot. There is no "farming area" in MoP like circling Uldum or Deepholm. Every zone is so full of ore that there is a huge potential supply out there, I often times have 4 to 6 dots on my mini map, people who don't have the engy goggles in the guild make the same comments about all of the ore and herbs out there. Even if nothing was limited by cooldowns or SOHs the supply would be so far in front of demand prices would remain low.

Also the good stuff isn't very good either. LFR level epics are meh at best.

Considering that it will be harder to gear up in LFR, they should sell better than in Cata. Especially the offhands. However, what I really want to make are the BoA staves, which will certainly be useful as other alts are leveled.

Still boggles my mind that engineers are selling the Mists Goggles for under 1k, considering that they take 2 SoH to make, and you are just making your competition better by selling them. Should be using those SoH for scopes instead.

Ive sold alot fo the blue plate while lvling that off so it was not a total waste, but now stuck since I cant make it to Star City. HEY! Can a guildie that has a double mount take my pally there even if hes lvl 85? OH SNAP! Even a Lock can get me to Star City! haha DOH!

Doing the once daily shiat for Inscription is weak! Its material and I want it NOW!*see what I did there? My fellow AMericans should get that one for sure*

Leather has been good for me I have to say. Peeps sticking the scaprs up CHEAP and the Exotic's sell for 200-300% magins! well worth my AFK time on that front.

Chanting is a total waste right now on my server. I will be ganking all this low lvl shiat and selling once more peeps get into Heroics/LFR/Raid gearz.

JC seems to be a huge pile of gold as ever. The rings and necks being chief amoung them. Gems will be bank once again come LFR and to a lesser extent from Raids.

Another fun margin to be had:
5 dust = 1 essence.

I found 5 dust selling for around 20-25 gold, yet essences sell for 40g+
DING Profit!

random digression
I beg to differ.

Will be harder to gear up in LFR for organised guilds facerolling LFR and assigning loot.

Will be easier to gear up in LFR for your average Joe that in DS LFR had his gear rolled by everyone and his mother because they need for MS, OS, hold hostage for exchange, griefer and so on.

on topic
I guess the main reason lots of level 90 goodies are not selling now is simply because there is hardly any level 90.

It won't make much difference at the start, when everyone wants gear. But later on, I am pretty sure the new system will make it harder to gear up. Not everyone is selfish and in my experience, it was rather common for an alt to be able to pick up a good haul of gear from clearing LFR because she needed it and many others didn't.

I think the new system may be a good move though, in trying to protect the social norms of "need/greed" in PUGs. It's still frowned upon by most PUGs for dps to need tank gear etc. But the old LFR system threatened to undermine that, as people were adopting a negative "do unto others first before they do it unto you" philosophy as in a group of 25 you'd often have one or two bad apples and the effective social pressure is much less than in a 5 man.

Just a question but my guild JC who is 89 has indicated that he does not yet have access to the item level 450 neck/ring patterns. Where can he find them? I would look but I am firewalled at work.

Jade Forest i think. If it's not in your capital city its in Jade forest.

I find the whole SoH thing strange, since they're BoP but also used to create BoE gear they're almost worthless to some people but a goldmine for others.

Sadly my main toon is a LW, so I'm gated, getting above 575 is a pita, you need honored with Golden Lotus to buy the 575 skill up recipe, that I think, needs SoHs for crafting, and the epic recipes exhalted, I've beeing hitting the dailies and I'm half way to honored...
