I usually sell them for 2.5k, but apart from that, being bottlenecked by SoH isn't doing me any good in earning gold :)

Tailoring leg enchants require 1 Imperial Silk, which is 8 bolts (once per day) or 3 SoH + 5 bolts (as often as you like.) Last I looked they were ~1k on my server (was over a week ago, so I imagine it hasn't held at that price.)

I'm wondering if I should be more devout about making my daily Sha Crystals or just wait until we start raiding normals and DE the inevitable unusable items.

Saw some people hawking the new weapon enchants. Out of curiousity I checked auctioneer for their list prices... Dancing Steel (the dodge one) is apparently priced at 20k per enchant... the other two were listed at ~10k each. Looks like I won't be changing from Windsong any time soon.

Edit: Also had a leftover +50 int to bracers scroll on my mage... on a whim I posted it for 1k and it sold. Might be a lucrative market until the new ones become more widely available?

So...the SoH has been more than a cock block to me. If I had known how bad the issue was going to be I would have lvled my Paladin first as hes my BS/Engie. I made PHAT Goblin bank the first night/day of MoP selling my ores for a ton each, but by the 2nd day they were at the lvl of Obsidian at the end of Cata. I have all my skills at lvl 600 now, but tat means dick without any SoH.

haha bah! I have been selling all my old Cata stocks like I used to...so damn ODD this dynamic.

I sure dont know JC shit I have to say. That looks like a HUGE market like it ever is. I just not made some diamonds and will sell them raw and see how that goes (400% margins this first go). haha WAY behind the damn curve this time on JC. Anyone doing the JC shuffle anymore with this new shiat?

What methods/logic are yall using to price your Spirits of Harmony for crafting? I've been using Golden Lotus prices as a guide since you can buy those with SoH. I've had moderate success with 750 per SoH. I could go lower, but at that point would be better off selling the Golden Lotus's instead.

It is pretty server dependent from what I have seen. We are still floating around 1k per on my server.

You seem to be on the right track there, however... I've seen people either without the tradeskills or the inclination to use them buying the GL and dumping them on the AH a bit. Enough that it might be worth sucking those up to resell as flasks.

Holyblaze, it's SoH for GL (Alliance vendor is at Shrine of the Seven Stars on the platform near the flight master.) AFAIK there isn't any place to swap the other direction.

I believe you get 3 GL for 1 SoH, so at your server's price, you'd be looking to price your SoH at around 525g.

Looks like there is steady income to be had in the Cata level 79/80 JC crafted rings/necklaces.

1g5s for a setting from the JC vendor.
75silver up to 8g per Alicite or Jasper.

Blue quality rings sell for 250-300g still, greens are still selling in steady amounts for 20-50g.
All those toons leveling up need gear!

ACK! I could never do that me think. I dont want to do Farmville in WOW, so doing the Tillers for my SoH also makes me cry!

You can get SoH from the Golden Lotus treasure boxes, fishing, archaeology (I think?), mining*, herbing**, killing mobs, and farming. If none of those interest you, then I'm sorry to say that you'll have to wait to see if SoH ever become non-BoP, and by that time, I'd imagine a lot of the "big money" will have died down.

*Pretty sure I've gotten motes from mining nodes.
**I'm assuming based on mining.

No on mining, arch, fishing, herbing.

You need to kill stuff or play Farmville.

I think this might have been true at a certain point on Beta, because I am sure I have seen a mote coming out of a node, but never after that.

Yep, early in beta, not after that.
