    Question Picked up Crusader: Sell or learn

    So thanks to the Undermine Journal, I just snagged Enchant Weapon - Crusader for 5,000 g. My understanding is that this formula doesn't drop any more, however many people think it will be returned to the game one day.

    I've been building a nice little collection of BoA recipes recently, so I'd kind of like to know it. That said,if it's worth a fortune now and may drop in the future, maybe I should hold out till later and try to cash out while I can.

    So are people seeing this go for big money these days? It's popped up a couple times in the last few weeks for around the same 5k

    Would just like to hear about what others are seeing, and if anyone has any sage advice.

    When ever it comes to high ticket recipes or similar that can sell for a large amount AND/OR be used to make a lot of gold once learned - I have a simple rule for it:
    I put it up for extreme prices (for example 30k gold) for a week or two. If it doesn't sell then I learn it.

    I sell Crusader scrolls on a regular basis; I'd say 4-6 a week for 300-500 each. YMMV, of course.

    LIke fameseeker i sell the enchanting scrolls pretty often - and If you offered my 5.000G to "unlearn" the recipe - I would say no thx.

    You'll not make 5k in a week, and mayby not even in a month, but if you just keep them on the AH you'll end out with some very nice profit.

    If you can get 30k for it (unlikely on my server) then I would definitely sell it as I prefer the instant gold with a great ROI and there's always a chance another will show up.

    Failing that learn it. I too sell quite a few of these at 300-500g each.

    Learn it. The resell value is unimportant on recipes that you do not know, but are profitable to craft. The reason is that the resell value will only effect how many sells are needed to make the opportunity cost favorable for learning the recipe.

    I already knew the formula on my enchanter, but picked up 2 a few weeks ago for 500 and 650g (last one was a bid so very lucky on that one to get it) sold the first one for 25k, after I put it up the ah for a week or 2 for an absurd amount (99k) and the other is still at the AH for the same amount, hoping to find someone else who thinks 25k is a steal

    Yes, but then your servers market, other sellers coming into the market and future changes by blizzard can all affect this. If you can sell it for a high amount then the instant liquid gold is a safe bet. Learning it is a gamble in my opinion, because to make back the returns of selling it can take a long time, during which many things can happen.

    Either way, you're onto a winner, so I guess it depends on a) if you can even flip it for enough on your server and b) if you want to gamble that learning it will eventually result in more returns.

    Personally I'm impatient, so would probably sell if possible. :P

    i've had one up on my realm for a few weeks now at 10k and it hasn't sold. I already know the enchant so I'll just keep throwing it up until it sells or blizzard adds it back as a drop.

    That's probably what I would do. Another thing to consider, timeframe-wise, is patch 4.1. There is a new tank-based BoA sword on the PTR that would make a very cozy home for many, many Crusader enchants. I see a crusader spike coming fairly soon...
