The Auction House and Jewelcrafting Epics

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 1:09 pm

Flowersz nearly has enough JC tokens to buy and craft an epic. That bit’s easy, human enhancement just do the JC dailys every day for 10 days and don’t spend them. The tough part is deciding which one of the epic recipes I should go for, surgery and whether the damn things will sell at all.

I’ve been watching the AH and there’s consistently about 4/5 JC epics up for sale at any one time for between 4000 and 5000 gold, but I can’t tell if they’re actually selling or what. I don’t want to waste my tokens making an epic that won’t sell until the market crashes. The market is still very young on these items and there’s the potential to make a real killing, but only if there really are buyers out there. The Dragon’s eyes on their own are still going for around 500gold apiece so that’s at least 2000g in those materials alone. If the market isn’t there then I could convert all 10 tokens into Dragon’s Eyes and sell for 5000g in a low risk sale.

Bah, I wish I had a friend who could tell me what the high achievers are prepared to pay, or if they’re just “tapping” their guild Jewelcrafters rather than hit the AH. (Edit:OK, I do have some friends, I’m not quite that sad)

In the meantime the market is crashing on [Delicate Scarlet Ruby]s, going from 180g to 120g between Friday and Sunday evenings. [Potent Monarch Topaz] are still holding their prices at around 170g, but sales are slow, probably because it’s now cheaper to buy other gems. Nevertheless I now have around 7500 gold up from just 4000 a fortnight ago! It seems odd not to worry about 30g respec costs. Only another 3 levels before its worth buying epic flying training for Flowersz.

  1. I believe Auctioneer can actually tell you if the items sold or not. As long as you do regular scans of the AH. (Say twice a week, which I do).

    Ask me about it next time we’re online together and I’ll check my stats. But i’m 99% sure I’ve seen that info somewhere.
