Thread: Abyss and Cata

    Abyss and Cata

    Hey guys just posting an observation on something that i have noticed. The night before cata hit abyss crystals were roughly going for 5-12g each , GCC was around 5-9g ea and infinite dust roughly 1g to 1.25g each but as of this post those prices have increase or the quantity has declined. Currently Abyss crystals 14g GCC 16g and ID at 2.25g. I had 100+ abyss crystals and sold off 20 for 14g before realizing what the market was doing. i had shattered 40 to test the waters with GCC and ID to see if ppl would buy it at those prices. Will post if they sell or not by the end of the night

    I've bought a few hundred after being reminded by this thread. It's very profitable. They are up to about 15g on my server.

    Yeah I've been stocking abyss crystals for a while now. I've been lowering my by up to price for a while, trying to keep it roughly where the market is. It was 30g when I started selling northrend enchant scrolls a few months ago (when my enchanter hit 65), then 25g, then 20g for a long time. For the last month or so, it's been 15g. The price has dropped further and further and I'm buying tons for under 10g now, but I will still buy up to 15g. People are so desperate to get rid of wrath stock that the price will drop to 6-8 by the next day anyway. I was still selling tons of +10 stats, and some weapon enchants, so I've been going through it too, but decided that stockpiling through cata would be just fine at 15g, as that will generate profits from shattering even at fairly low prices for essence and dust (1g dust 5g essence will be avg 2g profit per shatter, and at those prices, the cheaper wrath enchants will sell easily to regular non-rich levelers). If there's demand for certain enchants from high twinks, goblin alts, or demand for powerleveling enchanting that drives the price up as we expect, then there will be huge profit potential.

    The only thing I could see spoiling this is a revision to the shatter that nerfs the output.

    I've got around 1k crystals now bought for something like 10k total, waiting to see what the market looks like before I make my move. I'm hoping to get at least 25-30k from them, maybe more.

    I should mention -- one of my most profitable arbs throughout wrath was splitting void crystals into large prismatic shards. I consistently sold between a few and a few dozen shards a day at anywhere from 1-2g up to 7-8g profit per shard. Even though I wasn't consistent about listing my shards or buying up crystals, over the course of wrath on a number of different servers, I'll bet I made 30k from this arbitrage alone. I built a 5k gold bankroll from scratch on one server I started with nothing just to do it, and about 4500 of it (plus 3 full netherweave bags of crystals and shards - probably worth another 8-10k if I bothered to sell them off now that I'm not playing there) was all from this one arbitrage -- the opportunity there was huge: 5g voids and 15g LPS, and people bought them fast for a long time, so basically just did this arb for a few weeks and little else once I had a few hundred gold. I haven't had that much success on either my old main, or my current main server, but I've easily made 5-10k on each from it, while not even paying a great deal of attention to it.

    In any case, I predict that abyssal shatter will be voidshatter 2.0. The prices of abyss crystals will not go up much, unless you have multiple people wise to this on your server, but the prices of dust and essence will hold steady and even increase once all of our guild banks full of saronite ore get used up.

    Thx Mornia for that link to that post.

    Currently on my server's AH my GCC is currently the only ones in the AH for 20g ea and ID for 35g per stack so far not a bad turnaround but the price of abyss crystals are 15g now O Well...

    I've been making an absolute killing on these. I've shattered around 800 of them, and since the dusts pay off for the Abyss, the GCEs are pure profit, going like mad at 20g apiece. For those of you who are interested, I got an average 4.84 dusts and 1.63 essences per abyss with 795 shatters.
