As the patch wears on, and the next ex pac is expected, many play styles and paterns will change. IMO there is not longer any point now in stockpiling the way I did for 4.3. If I do any stock piling it will be for one week max at a reducued production level and it will only be on consumables. Leg armors, belt buckles and enchants. Doing the JC market is more work than I want to do, and doing the ore suffle is even more.
I will not be making the stocks I had Pre 4.3, I really did not expect to clean out my chanting mats and scrolls in less than 2 weeks. More like 10 days. I thought it would last me for about 3+ weeks. OH well less work for more profits as prices are starting to come down. Or at least profit margins are.
I think for my massive pile of volatiles I will hold out for a bit longer on trying to offload them. My reasoning behind this is a guess and prediction of demand will go back up once the newness of the 4.3 wears off. I suspect that leveling crafters will get back to leveling professions and other big volume users will re emerge. If not, I dont expect prices to drop too much more, but then I did not expect them to drop the way they did either. Who knows. I guess now I will have time to play at some other things like the new darkmoon fair next month, and alts and other things... I have never had a maxed out tailor... or mage or warlock or DK... might work at all 3 of those... (not the DK)
And of course I will continue to find new ways to make gold while doing it.
Happy Hollidays to all
