    True, but new toons are also being created and being leveled who will always need glyph. Not to mention most classes have at least 10 glyphs to learn them all (might be more as I'm not looking at it). So it's a toss up between the two. The bright side scribes at least got new glyphs people are wanting. Also scribes can make the shoulder enchants which will be selling as people replace theirs whether it's from Timeless Isle, ToT or SoO.

    Not saying scribes have it easy as mine just mainly sits there and makes glyphs for me and my friends alts. I could make money with cards but I just don't want to sit there forever milling and then having to remember to do the daily cooldown.

    Plus, say you are a rogue for example, you still needs 2 trinkets, so the inscription one is still good, due to the Timeless Isle one is unique equipped so they can (if they want to) equip both inscription AND timeless isle one. So it's not worthless really and i think people will still get them from time to time.
    lol what server on you on they barely sell for 8g on where i am the only profit i can get from it are the fortune cards

    Theres always people making new toons and buying new glyphs, I used to make 20k easily each week and that was from maybe an hour a day's work of listing/cancelling/relisting and just restocking maybe once a week on weekends. Sure its not the 60k a day I was making when the expansion dropped, but its still a million gold in a year.

    I say used to though, because theres now a smartass on my server who obviously has too much gold and is bored and just wants to watch the world burn. He lists EVERY glyph (even the new ones), 20 at a time, for 20g each, which is essentially cost (my cuttoff is about 35 - 45g depending on the inks used to make sure I get some profit). I just post all my glyphs at my fallback of 400g, and I still occasionally sell some, whether its because all the 20g ones have been burnt through and mine are the only ones left or someone has sorted the AH back to front, but its only about 1k - 2k a week now I hoped at first it was just a short term thing, he was just trying to alpha dog everyone and push people out the market, but its been going for about 3 months now, so I'm just crossing my fingers for connected servers and connected AH in the hopes it'll mean more business and make it harder for him to keep it up.

    So is it just me who feels like that?
    Inscription got the most new recipes in 5.4, and not every profession gets new items to make so not sure what is your problem.
    As for Darkmoon Trinkets, they work diffrent from other crafted gear in terms of Power: They start out even with Heroic First Tier trinkets without Effort and get no Upgrades while the other crafting Professions start out with Raidfinder-quality (or worse due to fewer Sockets) but get Updates with content patches, although many Items require Extra Effort through Reputation Grind, Trash Pattern drops etc.

    I personally embrace how Professions have this kind of Variety and highly recommend picking the Profession(s) that you prefer instead of whining about the supposed superiority of other Professions.
    Capitalism, Ho!

    You learned a recipe for a craftable pvp trinket (Useful for non-PvPers trying to get into PvP), as well as the numerous scribe recipes (Most of which are BoE, and currently are selling for truckloads of gold)
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    It's like crossing an intersection. There's shit going on all over the place and you don't panic and act like an idiot then do you?

    if glyphs are not selling well on your server--even the newer ones, then craft the shoulder chants. Folks are always needing those for their upgrades or alts.

    Love that Tradechat Spam "Want to buy Glyph looking for Inscriptionist"


    OT: Look out for Prepatch Event that happens a week or two before the next Expansion. Glyphs may get changed again a lot and become interesting for players. You can also farm the new Techniques or buy them on AH for a Profit with new gems.

    While way too early to be useful right now, keep this piece of advice in mind, and stock up before the pre-patch if there's widespread changes like last time. I was sitting on a full GB tab of inks and made some VERY nice profit, especially the first 10 hours of the patch. (even with everyone and their mom having log in troubles during that span).

    Gems on my server are less than 50g each for a rare quality gem. Perfect gems are like 5-10g for the same cut.

  14. #34
    I still pull in anywhere between 5k and 15k per day selling glyphs, not counting shoulder enchants or decks. That's between 2m and 5m gold right there. It's not as though I have this market to myself either, there are 3 other re-sellers who list several times per day, and many others who list once/twice per day. Inscription is fine. If you're relying on deck sales to make gold then you're not putting the effort in.

    The issue here is that you were reliant on a crutch, a small part of the profession which brought your profit and now are falling flat now that single part is no longer as attractive as it was.
    Expand a bit, look at the profession as more than just decks.

    I'm pretty happy with my scribe tbh. It largely depends on what realm you're on, but I can still make great money on mine.

    Glad I wasn't the only one thinking it. Of course some brilliant soul on my realm started a trend of calling them inscriptionators.

    I still sell quite a few trinkets each month. They aren't a huge money maker, but people still buy. Glyphs are the real gold mine.

    Inscription makes enough money in the first couple of months of the expansion. The trick is to level it on multiple chars (one of the easiest professions to level) prior to the next expansion, make cards, make decks, sell em and make lots of gold. Once decks stop selling change professions, maybe in the next patch when (if they keep up the current trend) you get a daily CD and can craft items with it (i.e. Sky Golem).

    A lot of gold for pretty much minimal effort. None of this list / relist bullcrap that goes with selling glyphs.

    Like other people have mentioned, the "relist bullcrap" is what makes the real money.

    Glyphs are worse moneymaking wise than doing dailys. Not many get sold as only new alts need a couple, and the prices drop alot, making 30-50g profit per glyph. and you dont really sell many glyphs per day. 5 on a good day. Ofcourse more if you gank the AH 24/7.

    E: this is with my Finnish-heavy server aka full of wannabe elitists sitting in the ah 24/7 undercutting each other.
