also if you mine, and don't mind spending time to make ur money, shouldn't take you too long to mine 100 stacks or so, maybe an hour or so of just dedicated mining, and then production is free, which makes ur profit even more
I've been doing it for quite a while since 5.2 made it worth my time again and since last Saturday I made 108k gold profit, doing the shuffle with 2-9k ore a day.
Most of the gold comes from the metas, which I sell the most on my server, then leftover gems (red blue yellow) into cuts, also with decent profit. Sometimes I get great profit off serpent's eyes selling them for 400 each stack.
But I ran into serious problem now - no freaking ore on the AH! I play on HUGE realm which is #3 populous in EU region and there was always abundance of the ore on AH, but in last few days i'm struggling to fetch every couple hundred cos there's almost none on AH, or it's ridiculously priced. If there's ore shortage on a high pop realm I don't even want to know how crappy low-medium realm economies are. For this scale of the shuffle farming it myself is out of question, providing 6000 ore would propably take multiple hours farming connected into dead realm CRZ. I post on trade channel offering highest prices yet I get no whispers.
How do i get freaking ore, or farmers to contact me then?? I almost ran out of my 120 meta gem supply in two days and the gold train will soon stop if this will continue.
Is trillium ore worth it? You get a blue every cast pretty much but it costs THREE HUNDRED GOLD per stack... 75g per prospect cast, gah! And you can get shitty river's heart that's worth 20g on a good day...
edit: It same as in cata. People always have blue gems since it has biggest chance to drop from prospecting and River's Heart gems are about 60-100g on my server so i guess "shitty" medium servers actually have a good side
Or maybe Blizzard banned a lot of bots which could've caused Ghost Iron Ore prices to explode.
Don't have too much constructive to say, but ehm... your name isnt covered in post 13 yet..

Some of you lot are ridiculous. I wish they banned all bots as they are artificial and people making real $ out of the game by cheating. That would then mean ore would find its true value and then all the one trick ponies sat on their backsideds in orgrimmar or stormwind who only know how to shuffle would have to adapt.
artem why does being able to mine in panda amount to an increase in prices?
