Someone on the internet is wrong. In this sad set of affairs I am rudely dragged away from my very pressing real world existance, but will not rest until I have set the record straight. (And some people think I'm melodramatic).
Lets walk through the steps of milling.
10 stacks of whiptail @ 70g/stack = 700g
I just milled this and got :
Blackfallow ink: 58 * 7.5g = 435g
Inferno ink : 12 * 72g = 865g
Total : 1300g
So milling - however long it takes - on 10 stacks makes 600g - nearly double your money. Not bad. Most boring activity in WoW, but not bad gold.
However, lets assume you can't sell Blackfallow ink at 7.5g, but can sell inferno ink: You still have 5.8 * 72g = 416g worth of inferno inks.
Now, if you are feeling particularly ... something, you will turn 3 blackfallow inks into a 10g glyph. So your cost (in purely inferno ink equivialent) is 0.3 & 72g + 55s for a parchment or rougly 22g.
For me - Doing extra work to turn 22g worth of mats into something that might get sold for 10g is strange. If you wish to be strange - OK. In the meantime I will find other uses for my inks - even if I just sell them as is/where is.
Coming soon : Where foo is using up a gazillion whiptail - without losing 1/2 my profit.
PS. my blog posts are a little less frequent than I would like - but real life is still ... being unhelpful.
... and that's how I made 350B yesterday - Skill trading was deployed yesterday and with it unprecedented opportunity to make ISK at the expense of morons. For reasons unknown to me, they paid 350-4...
