    Cataclysm Murglesnout Gambit

    While browing TUJ's Hot Items list I could not help but spot the unusuall: Murglesnout, the most useless Cata fish, has made it to the top with 10s of stacks sold and bought. Although the price on my server is still very cheap (20s each). After doing some digging I found this post (http://powerwordgold.blogspot.com/20...ut-gambit.html) on Power Word's blog. What do you think? Would you join the gambit or would you sit this one out? I personally won't stockpile it massively and will probably just buy a few stacks.

    That post is a little out-of-date. Back at that time Murglesnout was not used in a single thing, so some people stocked up on the off-chance Blizzard introduced a buff food or something interesting for it later. They did eventually add a recipe for it, but it's plain hp/mana food so it didn't really go anywhere.

    Edit: Well I see the post talks about that recipe, but it's still from the perspective of stockpiling before it's released in hopes it went up. Now that the recipe is in game it's passed.

    Ah ok...I must have misread the blog. Any chance to close/delete this thread so it won't mislead anymore people?

    Thanks for reading Power Word: Gold! I actually touched on this again in my recent post "Weekly Recap: Gems, Recipes and Skeleton Keys". The TLR is Murglesnout was pretty much a bust for me. I stocked up on WAY too many and no one wanted them. I've sold the last few stacks i didn't vendor but it wasn't for very much. Obscure cooking pattern is obscure.

    I stocked up a ton of these as well before the pattern was announced. It did not pay off and I was paying 2-4g/stack of them. I tried to push the price up but it dove even lower than when I was buying them. I also ended up vendoring most of them. Total bust on that speculation, but only a few hundred gold invested.

    I am selling skeleton keys as well. It is completely killing me inside not being able to bark these though, as if any item was ever going to benefit from being barked, it is skeleton keys. People are just generally unaware that this is an available route for unlocking lock boxes. Overall I think barking would result in a net loss though as the barrier to entry and risk associated is basically nothing in this market.

    I actually just read the post on PW:G and while the Murglesnout didn't catch my eye, the Skeleton keys did. I did a quick scan on my server and not many keys up, seems like it could be a sound investment.
