I use the number of pages of AH glyphs to give an indication as to how much re-posting is happening. We are down to 56 pages of glyphs (was up to 110 or so)
Moonvengence has swapped from 1c undercutter with roughtly 250g fallback to 1c undercutter with 30g undercut. For those glyphs he sells, he is owning the market.
Moonvengence: 29 pages
Nevica : 3 pages
Ryzar : 3 pages
Ignoring any toons with less than 2 pages, the market has shunk a lot. The toons that are retailing my glyphs don't even make that list.
With such a dominant player, other scribes have dropped out of the market. Bankzoors came and went. I have not seen Neo posting for a few days, and the huge influx of players have left.
Inscription takes a lot of ink to build up a glyph catalogue. In combination with players leaving the market, plus the cost of whiptail still falling (possibly influenced by less glyph and card making), (This blog also serves as a 'reminder' for historical information blackfallow inks have fallen to 10g80 each, and inferno are 90g each, and whiptail is 5g)
All told, since outsourcing my glyph retailing earlier this week, I sold about 100 glyphs earlier this week, and my cut was 5k gold. This cut was in addtion to the cost of making glyphs.
There is an opportunity to play with the cost of some glyphs, in particular northrend based inks, as snowfall in still sells moderatly well, and the herbs are still very cheap. Milling is still profitable (even after paying someone to mill for me). I am able to post blackfallow ink, downgrades inks and match current prices with Moonvengence.
New MMO Players Are Old Noobs - In doing the research for the last article, I came across this interesting August interview with Tom Chilton. It is a sort of “past 10 years, next 10 years...
