    it might be ok as a temporary workaround hotfix, but definitely needs to be solved with a major

    I have serious problems with selling uncut gems on my server (High Pop). I can post 20 uncuts at a time and it will take at least 48 hours to sell all of them, being very competitive.

    Unless you are farming the ore yourself, or buying it ridiculously cheap, it's not as great a cash cow as it used to be, considering the ease at which you can make gold in other areas of the game.

    Remember, time is money, friend.
    First you say "unless you farm the ore yourself" and then you say that time is money?

    that's why you need addons like tradeskillmaster to make this work. both jc and ench usually have a lot of competition and you need to sell big amounts to make it worth your while.

    simply buy the ores when they are cheap and sell the gems during peak time (weekends and raiding days).
    if your server isnt extremely empty, this will work since the ore prices will skyrocket on peak times and you can still sell them for high profit by undercutting. key is to know how much a gem costs you.
    if you however expect to sell all gems on of days by posting them once midday you cannot expect much.

    on my server tuesday is the "buy all the mats" day and on wed/thurs comes the high profit (people here tend to cap and do raids asap, so gems will sell mostly on these days)

    Back a few months ago I could make 100k in profit or more from just jc and ench on a tue night, today it is just a fraction of that.

    Also depends on if your enchanter and JC are the same character. IMHO.. the enchanting part of it is gone. Enchanting mats and enchants are just too cheap to be worth it. Probably because of our ability to ´upgrade´ dusts this expansion. In my case, it definitely wasn´t worth sending jewelry to my enchanter.

    I am just cutting common gems, selling the perfects and vendoring the normals. The agi rings sell good, so I always keep about 5 of them on hand to sell (ie, I don´t cut the purple gems).

    I made a ton of gold selling the gems I got from learning new gems.

    It is a bit random and it will take a few weeks because you can get so many gems (and strictly speaking it cost more since it takes 3 gems for 2 random gems) but if you can farm the Zandalari Warbringers you will get more ore then you can possibly use.

    It works very well on my server.

    Ever since the removal of PvP Resilence on gear, PvP gems went up from 30g to 200g+ on my server, with all other gems evening out at about 100g a gem. Life is good..

    I'm so glad I spent the weekend prospecting. I've sold gems for more than 100k on two realms combined today.
