    I like buying out stuff that People put on the AH cheaper than vendor prize. Often times it's just stuff that vendors for 1g which People put up for 15silver so no big deal but there are also weird ones like Shoulder Inscriptions Stacks for 10g buyout per Piece who have a Vendor prize of 18g75s.

    Making money on the AH really has to do with your individual server economy, if you have some free time and are really interested in making money, surf around the AH just looking at prices of the common trade goods ( ores, herbs, gems etc) and see what is going for the best price and how easy it would be to obtain a decent amount of it and plan for future riches accordingly

    With the new catchup mechanic requiring it, and the fact that current Honour PvP sets will be craftable using it I think we will for sure be seeing a lot of demand.

    Also a ton of people will be transmuting the stuff for the legendary quest.

    The catch up for BS, in theory, should only cause some price parity with old world ores. If Ghost Iron price goes up high enough, most (smart) people will just continue to use old world ore to level, only throwing in Ghost Iron when it's cheaper. In other words, this particular thing can't drive prices much higher than other ores. Best case scenario everyone uses it to circumvent Fel Iron and the price goes that high for a short while.

    The crafted PvP gear shouldn't be in super high demand IMO. People who were playing in 5.1 already have it just from honor. The only people I see buying much of it are leveling alts, but they were most likely the same people buying the old crafted gear.

    The legendary quest will be the real driver IMO. 20 trillium bars per character that gets that far in the legendary quest. That's 200 ghost iron bars (realistically more like 170-180 counting the proc rate). You also have to factor in the new epic recipes. That means more living steel demand, which in turn means even more trillium demand, which in turn means more pressure on Ghost Iron Bars. Also the new bar, Living Steel Ingot, takes 10 ghost iron bars as well.

    http://ptr.wowdb.com/spells/138885-dragonmaw-reborn for instance, is going to take 15 Living Steel Ingot and 8 Living steel in total. Which is (15*10)+(8*6*10)=630 Ghost Iron Bars to make ignoring transmute procs.

    So yeah, Ghost iron should go up, but I don't think the "catch up" will be the main driving force. Though I do expect that to keep the price high into the forseeable future (including into future expansions).
