I originally had 20 of each glyph; and am currently occasionally re crafting back to 15 of each glyph. If I have more than 15, they are not a great seller. If I have 0 glyphs, then they sell well.
I don't like crafting glyphs. I am not sure I even like selling them. I do like the gold from them.
As an offer, for the first pass of buying your bulk glyphs:
- shimmering ink glyphs I need horde side : 7g each
- For all other glyphs I need horde side : 20g each
However, I 'want' glyphs to get my alliance side toon up to 20 as well. For glyphs that I want alliance side; I will pay 4g (shimmering ink); 15g the rest.
You don't tend to have a large stockpile, but if you happened to have a few too many of a glyph that takes me past 40 of that glyph, I still am interested in paying 'want' prices.
For the glyphs that I already have a stockpile of 40; they are less valuable to me at this point. I don't want the glyphs that are on the glyph hall of shame (will just vendor them); for the rest; 3g each.
When it comes to future re crafting of glyphs - I am willing to negotiate; I can provide shimmering inks, or can get you to mill other inks. As a basis for future crafting prices, the prices for the bulk glyphs above seem a starting point for negotiation.
I am happy to accept counter offers. I am also happy to work in conjunction with any scribe on Caelestrasz - horde or alliance. Prices that I offer or accept can vary.
Why do I price shimmering ink glyphs so cheap? I still have well over 1000 of these inks that I bought at 1g each. What is the basis of the other pricing? Blackfallow ink is currently selling for 5g.
A note to the unbelievers. I have previously been asked if I really consider that it costs me 15-20g to craft a glyph. I am putting my gold where my mouth is - yes I do place this value on them.
I see four distinct points in the value chain in glyphs, each point has their own challenges:
- Gathering herbs
- Milling herbs into ink
- Creating glyphs
- Selling glyphs
You can use this approach to make the gold from glyphs regardless of whether you have inscription or not. There is no need to have your own scribe; providing you can find one who works fee for service.
