Well, ... my gems are at any case.
Recently there has been a flood of cheap gems; I've noticed it; The gold queen thinks it might be to hacks. While not discounting the possibility of hacked gems (I came accross my own suspicious gem deal), I am not so sure.
Who buys gems? Main toons getting new gear. Just because I have my keep my (healer) alt ready to go with even a few epic cata gems; does not mean that Joe Average gems his alts. I am starting to see a few ungemmed or unenchanted toons offer to join my pugs (I am current recruiting DPS), claiming to have DS10 experience on their alts.
What do mains not buy? Glyphs - they already have them.
So, what does Joe Average buy for his alts? Cheap glyphs, and Epic BOE's.
Trinkets are my BOE sale of choice, but I gave up on them when 4.3 dropped; a surplus of trinkets; all better than most Darkmoon cards.I wasn't the only one. For a few Darkmoon cycles, you couldn't give some trinkets away. I was starting to unload my unused cards.
Then I had another look. I do this every month or so on the markets I have abandoned, and just re-check prices. There were no trinkets for sale. Zip; Nada; none.
Whenever there are none for sale, I try to sell at overinflated prices. My trinkets sold quickly. I crafted some more; and I am currently getting prices (on everything but Volcano) higher than I did during 4.2.
I am again selling Darkmoon cards.
Glyphs have also raised in prices. There were 3 sellers (not including me); keeping prices about 20g each. I bailed out as I was having much better Gold per hour from gems.
Currently there is one seller (where did the other two go?), selling many 100-200g glyphs. I have posted a few glyphs to try the market out.
The biggest advantage to having multiple tradeskills maxed is that if one market crashes; you can diversify easily. When gold making gets tough, keep an eye on those older forgotten toons and their tradekskills.
