I'd be interested to see what price they start churning gems out for. If they have the market cornered they could well make that back....

Well the agile recipe that just sold - there were already gems for sale on the AH so the buyer already knew he didn't have the market completely cornered.

One guy got the agility drop yesterday afternoon and sold 1 or 2 at a time for 1500g, he seemed to get a buyer every couple of hours. The guy that has just bought auction for 35k is now selling them for 1450g, he has 6 listed.

I have seen reports of people making 60k on cornering the market. I think it is likely this guy will at least make is 35k back, but it is a little risky imo. All it takes is a couple more people to start selling them and the price will drop a fair bit.

It's crazy really, I can buy a meta that will do exactly the same as the 1500g gem but instead of 54 agi I get 54 Crit for 200g. The DPS difference is tiny, there is no point spending 1500g now imo, not when you know inside of 2 weeks it will be down to about 500.

At 1300 I guess you stand a chance of making money back, selling 30 or so is not unreasonable even at that price with the current demand. I'll probably buy one myself even at that price before we next raid tbh.

It's a risk if people start undercutting and the market drops though.

It's not the same for all classes though, it's quite a bit dps increase for warriors for example. Enough for me to justify that sort of money.

1.5k is really not that much these days either. I made around 5k in the last week just by leveling Kraj and selling herbs, and I wasn't playing silly amounts of time really. Though I spent 2k of that yesterday having to regem/reforge/reenchant due to the patch :mad:

If you have the money then it's no real issue, I think me using feign death at the wrong time would have a much bigger impact on Taks DPS. I think my gold can be better spent elsewhere.
