Sha Touched Gems cost 10k to replace and Eye of the Black Prince costs 2.5k to replace.
I understand that these are legendary items and should be "difficult to obtain" and that it's entirely possible to obtain 12.5k in a few weeks solely from dailies. I also get that these items can be saved until you have a BiS or near BiS weapon.
However, I also understand that there are about 500k worth of gold sink mounts. Most things on the black market auction house go for at least 50k (discluding invitations of course). Weapon enchants cost about 5k (and used to be 10k).
I don't know it just kind of erks me that blizzard has added yet another substantial cost to this xpac if you want some freedom in upgrading your weapons.
Thoughts, opinions? Am I alone on this?
