    Dream Shards

    Dream Shards are now under 2g on my server, think I should buy them up and save them for a later date?

    I'm seeing the same trend on my server, with all wrath enchanting mats except dust. Each time i buy a load and think i will stash it, i end up using it on scrolls that are still selling nicely. But at 2g a pop, buy it. It's not like you take a huge risk with those prices

    Once people stop running wrath instances they will start to dissapear off the AH. Dream shards are still currency needed to purchase a lot of the wrath enchants so new toons leveling should keep the demand up. I am also purchasing these up at cheap prices.

    Dream Shard market has always been a very volatile market on my server. The last 2 month i have been buying any posted at 2G or less, and I start selling at +5G.

    The plan originaly was to stock up on these before Cata, but I have made several thousend Gold from this playing both factions because of the constant market movements.

    Btw I noticed something last night.

    Running a Random on a levelling toon which isnít a enchanter. I could need or green on all greens but not take ďdisenchantĒ = there where no enchanter in the grp.

    We could take DE on all blue = Dream Shard

    I must admit I donít know if this is a new thing. I havenít done randoms i 2 month, and 95% of the times I have don so has been on my main toon which is an enchanter

    I've personally invested several thousand into these, I just don't see their price dropping any lower. Should be a good cash cow in Cataclysm.

    You're saying you could DE blues even without an enchanter in the group? This could be a bug.

    Yes - and im sure.

    I was working on getting my DK the last way from 78 to 80 with some randoms.
    I played 2 "random" wotlk

    When I play random on my "non-enchanter" i always take "disenchant" on a drop - if there's no enchanter in the groupe and i only can take greed or need/greed i just pass (to lazy to move my ass to a vendor for the pocket change and most people need the cash more then I do).

    I played 2 randoms yesterday on my lvl 78-79 DK. Some greens dropped and I passed like I always do when theres no enchanter in the groupe.

    On every boss a blue item droped, and to my surprice i could take "disenchant" on these. (I hope it's jus a bug, as Dream Shards is one of my stockpilled items, and i wan't the supply to be low as low as posible)

    I'm not sure that new toons leveling enchanting will really need dream shards at all. Looking at a leveling guide, the only place dream shards are used is to make the runed titanium rod, and then once at 425, they will be able to grab cataclysm enchanting and start leveling on that. You may get a new collector who wants all the recipes, in which case they need a good chunk of dream shards, but I don't think that they will be consumed nearly as much once we have cataclysm recipes.

    Prices for these dropped under 1g a few weeks back on my server and i have a reasonable stockpile sitting around, although this is mainly due to my prolific use of them selling scrolls.
    At the moment there doesn't really seem to be a great potential demand for dream shards into the expansion, apart from a small spill over of people enchanting new leveling gear before Cata enchants become common place. As scu mentioned it only really appears to be in demand for runed titanium rods or possibly the odd twink enchant.
    The only current enchant which may keep some reasonable popularity is [enchant]Enchant Bracers - Major Stamina[/enchant] which doesn't use dream shards and the pattern is bought with Abyss crystals, not dream shards.

    My main business is scroll making also and the dream shards are now less than 1 gold on my server. So I use them and have been buying some but I'm not building up that big of a stockpile due to space constraints.
