    Pattern: Rich Purple Shirt... Sell now or hold till Cataclym?

    Hi,

    I was lucky enough to get the Pattern: Rich Purple shirt yesterday.

    Do you guys think I should try and flip it now or wait till Cataclysm?

    Thanks for you Help.

    It depends on how badly you want/need the gold. On the one hand, with gold inflation in Cataclysm the recipe will probably be worth at least 2 times what you can get for it now. If you can get X amount of gold and invest that gold now to return 3x or more gold a month into cataclysm then you should do that. Either way you're going to be able to make a lot of money so there's no wrong way to do it.

    My verdict: SELL for outrageous price (maybe 10x what you paid for it)

    Now my question: Orb of Deception - 400g - Flip now for 2k or wait until Cataclysm?

    My instinct is to sit on this one as the rush of goblins/worgen will make this a very hot commodity. Thoughts?

    I managed to grab the pattern for Rich Purple Shirt as well. Snatched it off the AH for 35g along with the Destruction Potion recipe for 50g. Trying to sell them for 5000g each but I have no idea if I'm aiming too high.

    I don't think 5,000 is high at all for . That's the fun part about owning really rare items... you have so much leverage with the price. It's easy to justify high prices. It depends on your server's economy, but I might try for 8 or 9k, just for fun. 5k for destro potion seems pretty reasonable to me.

    Great!. Thanks guys.

    I just wasn't sure if rare old world recipes prices might temporarily fall as there will be more people leveling (And therefore a greater chance of recipes dropping).

    I got it for 100g and sell shirts for around 50g each. I sell about 3 a day so in the long run I'll make some nice profits.
