    what do you do with all the [Serpent's Eye]?

    I'm finding myself with several banktabs full of serpents eye and I'm not sure what to do with them...

    What do you do?

    craft / DE blue necks is more profitable than to vendor but i'm not sure if DE the green ring is more though.

    Eyes go for 8g on my realm. The rings/neck don't sell, and they have a high deposit cost, so it wasn't worth for me to keep relisting them.

    Lords signets still sell. But if they arent selling on the AH. I'd either hold onto them or cut them then vendor for just over a gold a piece

    Craft blue blue necks and blue yellow rings (River's Heart and Sun's Radiance) and d/e them. The gems themselves do not sell well, there is 1 blue cut that everyone and their mother sells (PVP Power) and the yellow gems sell for nothing from what I have seen. Deposit costs make the items themselves not worth selling, and if you get a d/e proc you just got over what you could have gotten for the mats, and shards always sell.

    I usually just sell the eyes on the AH. Think they're used in a couple recipes so they go for some gold still.

    Not started using them up yet, outside of gearing an alt I just got to 90... but yeah, I see D/E mats being the way to go with them in general.
    Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
    It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
    Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
    These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.

    Create necklaces (widow chain), disenchant and create Sha Crystals. But it depends on the AH price on your server of Ethereal Shards and Serpents Eyes. On average, Ethereal Shards will be between 60 and 80 gold a piece. Serpents Eye's go from 2g to 30g a piece, so basicly, you just want to keep an eye on your AH, and buy cheap.

    You want to keep some of the necklaces, and sell them on the AH, but demand is low, so putting up 20 is useless, but you can always sell 1 or 2 for more gold then a Ethereal Shard is worth. Bountiful bags has a proc chance of 15%, but there is a chance to get x3, x4 or x5, so bump that up to 20%. Do your daily Sha Crystal CD, and use guildy's for that.

    So, if a necklace costs 30g to create matswise, and you created 100 of them, you get about 120 shards, which will turn in to 24 Sha Crystals, worth about 500g each, netting total of 12k. You made a profit of 12k-(30*100)3k=9k

    So, basicly, you only want to sell serpents eyes if they are worth a lot in the AH. I would say, above 9g it might not be worth to do this method, everything below that results in much more profit.

    On my servers it makes absolutely no financial sense to do anything with them except save for future use.

    flip them on ah and sell them for 30g each.

    These honestly don't sell at all on my AH, by the time you actually get a sale, you would have lost more from relisting them to get it.

    Make blue jewelry items and disenchant them and you'll ALWAYS make a lot more gold.

    Same as what most of the players do, I do sell them on the auction house.

    Yeah, it is impossible to make a profit off of the rings/necks unless you're on a low pop server or a server with extremely slow PVE progression. You're better off selling Serpent's Eyes.

    That's not true. High pop realm here and they sell, very well, even for more than the shards. Serpents Eyes however don't sell.

    i've sold 737 raw serpent's eyes so far, so i'd say on my realm there's a serious demand.

    craft +INT or +AGI, and sell in AH.

    usually can fetch a slightly better pricing IMO.
