    Non-Cataclysm Crafted Epics

    Are any of you still crafting non-Cataclysm epics at a profit?

    There is a large amount of level 70 twinks on my realm so I was considering trying to 2 man farm SWP trash (not sure if it can be solo-ed with much ease) for some of the very rare recipes.

    In reality there isn't really any market for level 60, 70 or 80 BOE Epics except maaaybe for a few twinks simply because the next expansion up offers exceptionally good gear from levels 58, 68 and 78 onwards.

    I routinely buy sub-level 60 world drop epics on the AH for 100-200g and flip them for about 950g. Beyond that price, I've found they don't really sell anymore. The fact that they're purple and can be worn for a few levels is enough to make the wealthier levelers spring for them.

    Sinshroud is right though, the fact that each expansion offers new, more powerful loot two levels before the 60/70/80 epics can be equipped means that anybody just passing through won't have any reason to buy any of the old level cap epics. These epics are really for twinks only now, so your ability to sell is probably dependent on what the twink community on your server is like.

    The other thing specifically about the crafted epics, it that the mat cost tends to shoot up once the farmers move on to the next expansion's stuff. If you could snatch some for dirt cheap, you might be able to bring the price down to a "sellable" level, but otherwise, I don't think most people would be willing to pay the prices required in order for this to be profitable.

    I think the only craftable epics that would be worth flipping are the top end ones, IE from SWP would be worth crafting and selling because the neck is better than what they'll get from any SWP boss, but other than that most other stuff is lower end and not really worth it.

    edit: only the recipe would be worth selling, seeing as the neck is BoP :[

    Those BoE recipes with BoP items products can go for about 20k gold still if you have any serious twinks on your server.

    There are a couple of BoE crafted items from there too. (and more that I just haven't listed)


    - these I know are BiS by far for a rogue and feral druid, even for dps war, pala and dk if I remember correctly. Though that was before the armor specialization buff so not sure what its like now.
