    i think my server is either very smart or very.... something else

    So the obsidium shuffle. possibly dead for vendoring gems, not dead to actually shuffle but whatever.

    so with all the speculation there has been this expectation that ore will flood the markets, prices will decline, people will dump gems, as everything else is dumped enchanting mats will decline, and we will be swimming in it all. at least at first.

    so at the high point of the shuffle (pre possible sky fallingness which so many have bought into whole sale) hypnotic was down to 80gs a stack and a hard sell at that. celestials 21g and a hard sell as well. scrolls.... meh still good but slowly degrading with competition. ore bounced up and down all day until it got to a certain price point then either myself or a competitor would empty the market. BSers had to fight for that ore tooth and nail.

    so whats happening now.
    hypnotic dust... no stacks listed. a stack of 5 is 26g. so i put 2 stacks up at 100g. (which i believe to be the break even price of doing a jasper ring)
    celestials. 3 listed. at 100g each. thats not per stack thats per greater celestial essence. (but there are lessers at 14g each so.. 42g per)
    ore is at an all time high and not in mass supply. not even sure whats going on with the BS. I'm still getting ore shipped to me from... some source at ridiculously cheap and in large large quantities.
    but what the heck is going on with my server? I mean for a time i figured i was proping up the price of ore by buying 100s and 100s of stacks. but since the news i've slowed my consumption down to what is sent to me and anything that comes out as a ridiculous deal. there are a ton of people that are dumping everything they can. they post an almost unending supply of rare gems at a very low price (i buy and flip)
    but in all seriousness at this point these people aren't buying more mass quantities of ore, bots aren't posting 300 stacks a day anymore, gems are... bouncing up and down all over the place, its volatile and scarey. I have no idea whats going on with enchanting mats. maybe its just right now but looking on the journal they seem to have gone up, and up and up slowly but surely. and supply has gone down and down and down.

    thoughts on what back water goofy mess of a server i am on?

    Seeing similar trends on my server. Obsidium and Elementium both spiking. Hypnotic dust stacks selling @ 200g. Celestials selling for 55g each. This could be the result of another supposed banwave, but let's be honest, these markets have been all over the place since launch and it's not even worthwhile speculating anymore.

    Enjoy high prices for now .

    I'd say its people just trying to play with the markets and preying on those of us who know whats involved in the shuffle etc, causing a stir with patch notes and making some serious bank.

    This. While a wild ride, the profits to be made from a volatile market are bliss. I've had to completely alter my market strategies from the tried and true, as they simply don't cover what is happening with the markets right now.

    Ore prices on my server are up as well. I regularly check in on ore and I never see any up for below 54g / stack on Obsidium ore or 36g / stack on Elementium ore anymore. I don't think this can be contributed merely to a select few players fomenting the price of ore. Herb prices are up as well despite no reports of a mass banning of bots like what has happened in the past.

    I'd like to think bots were banned, but I just bought 300 stacks of Cinderbloom at the seller just keeps posting (24g/stack).

    Ore and herbs are up on my server as well (herbs just slightly). I have been watching all morning via the remote AH and have seen practically no new ore posts.

    Same for my server. A few days ago I was getting my elementium ore for 20-25g a stack. Its now up to 36-40 a stack. Herbs have gone up as well. I dont think there is quite the volume of ore on the AH currently as there was. The rare gem market actually seems better on my server now as well.

    Obsidium at 74g/stack on my server for the past 3 or 4 days.
    Been dumping my stockpile (all bought under 49g/stack) by about 50 stacks a day... and it sells.

    Go figure...

    All time low on my server - I bought 250-ish stacks of obsidium this morning for 22g/stack.
