    Time to stock up on volatile lives and gems!

    As some of you may have seen, in patch 4.0.6, Blizzard will be releasing new alchemists' stones, with Agi, Str, and Int. They still require 50 volatile lives, and considering the number of players who never read patchnotes (remember the mess in dalaran when the portals were removed?), the odds are volatile lives will go up quite a bit when the patch hit.

    As for gems: blizzard is adding slots in epic crafted items that did not have any gem slots - not to mention the alchemists' stones have gem slots too - so gems so go up a bit in prices.

    Time to stock up!

    Shadowspirits as well! I am currently transferring my alt to the server my main is on (guild just xferred last week, so been a slow transition for me), and my new server has about double the prices of gems from my old server. I've spent 30k on my alt on Elementium Ore, which was about 400 stacks, prospected it all, and am going to xfer, wait for the patch to hit and post em slowly for a few weeks.

    Another thing about Volatile Lives is that more are required for flasks now as well, I think 10 up from 8, and that will also result in a surge with people trying to get that guild achievement.

    As a final random note... Darkmoon cards might see a price rise as well. With herbs and volatile lives getting a bunch of attention, thus the mats are scarce, the cards might become harder to find. I will be crafting about 40 and waiting for that day. If it doesn't come... oh well, but I expect it to happen

    Did anyone else notice in the mmodb for the new Alch stones it says "Cannot be disenchanted" That makes me worried the cheap maelstrom crystal supply is about to run out, can anyone with a ptr account confirm that none of the alch stones can be DE'd in 4.06?

    This is huge information. We need confirmation ASAP, and I will log on PTR tonight if no one else has posted.

    According to the item pages on Wowhead they are still disenchantable, but still some confirmation from the PTR would be nice.....

    Only the new stones? Is the old stone still flagged as DE'able?

    Second that. I'm curious what effect this will have on s, and whether it'll be worth stockpiling. This could be a huge opportunity. On the other hand, I'm not sure how popular the method is. Enchanting/Alchemy is not exactly a popular combination - and those players using this combination need to:
    - Level both professions.
    - Be informed about the trick.
    - Care enough about gold.

    On small-medium population server, I'm not sure that enough players fit into the above category to influence the price of Crystals sufficiently. On larger servers however, like Doomhammer, this probably isn't the case. Going to kick myself if I miss out on this.

    Here is the new Int stone http://db.mmo-champion.com/i/68777/v...chemist-stone/
    On their DB the old stam stone still says it can be DE'd http://db.mmo-champion.com/i/58483/l...chemist-stone/

    As for the popularity of this method I have already seen people posting in trade looking for enchant/alch characters. I immediately knew what they were looking for and offered to do it for a reasonable price :>

    Ok I d/l the PTR and transferred my alch/enchant over while we went for dinner. Just did some testing and so far it looks like you CAN DE the new stones and the original one.

    You can even equip both at the same time, so you could use any of the four you want to DE with now if you plan on actually using a couple (like I do)
