    Chaos Orb - What Price?

    Hi guys, I've made my items for myself now, and my guildies don't need them until they come back from holiday, so, what should I charge for Chaos Orbs, if I were to charge to make say, the epic chest that uses 3 orbs.

    Someone offered 500g each, now, don't get me wrong, that's not bad, but considering just the Pristine Hides are nearly 300g now, that seems WAY off compared to the effort you go through to get them.

    I'd say around 1000-1500 each.. Just look at the price of a simple flask or gem atm.And you don't even have to do an hour long heroic for that, let alone that you have pug them :x

    You can't sell/trade Chaos Orbs after you obtain them.

    I'm beginning to think people are trolling with the amount of "aren't they BoP?" or "aren't they soulbound?" every time I try to sell them. They're soulbound while in the form of a Chaos Orb, but they're used in BoE epic craftables.

    Obviously we're talking about prices on mats here if you're making a BoE epic.

    2.5k gold - 3k gold sounds perfectly reasonable. The mats needed to level the professions that can use Chaos Orbs is pretty ridiculous in the first place.

    500 seems right price to me

    This sounds perfect. I don't even charge that much for use of orbs. It's the other mats that are expensive. I get Chaos Orbs for free just for running heroics. They aren't hard to get. Of course, that may just be because i am not a greedy mutt.

    ahem, mining/skinning/herbalism
    that is all...

    actually, no it isn't, if anything, chaos orbs are the HARDEST to get, mining/herb/skinning mats are the easy things to get, you literally pick them from the ground/off mobs for free. heroics are HARD now, if you wipe ONCE or die ONCE, it's not free, youve lost money from repair bills. 500 is WAY not enough, maybe 1.25k?

    I've been selling them for 1500 each. No way is less then that worth it.

    I hate that they are soulbound. Not to mention only armor crafting professions can use them, making them useless to need roll on if you can't actually use them. Basically, only BS, Tailors and Leatherworkers can use them to make stuff. It saddens me that JC as a crafting profession had no epic jewelry this expansion.
