    Prospecting - Alicite

    Hello,

    I'm pretty new to AH trading and lately I've started to prospect and use the green gems.

    I currently do this:

    Carnelian - Transmute Inferno Ruby as I am master transmuter and with JC I can cut gems and sell on AH for pretty hefty profits.
    Hessonite - Hessonite Band - DE or I just sell it off AH, prices fluctuate a lot here.
    Jasper - Selling on JC quest days.
    Nightstones - Selling good, and up to 60 per on JC quest days.
    Zephyrite - JC Q.


    And my question goes for Alicite.

    I can buy it off AH for under 9g usually and as I am prospecting a lot I really get my hands full of it anyway.

    My question is OreCrusher says the optimal thing is to cut and vendor, which I don't really understand.

    Greater Celestial Essenece is selling for 40-50g each.
    Hypnotic Dust are selling for 4-8g depends when you sell it and I usually put mine up for 6.5g-8g and they tend to sell fast specially on Sunday and Wednesdays for obvious reasons.

    What is most profitable and what should I do? I don't really know that much about drop rates when u DE Alicite Pendant. Also I tend to get blues I can sell for 50-200g on AH.

    You should check out Sterling's excellent Ore Shuffling Spreadsheet. Input your data and you'll get the best answer Also, I'd consider turning your to . You'll have to check with the spreadsheet, but those babies have an awesome DE table and might very well be more profitable than transmuting to rubies.

    I agree with Belz - the DE route for the spikes will likely be a better route for you, IF you are looking for the most gold. But keep in mind the GPH is usually more when you SKIP that stpe and just sell the Alicites.

    As far as Alicite goes, I would continue to cut/vendor.
    At 8g a dust you need an average of 3.5 dust to get a profit, from 14g a gem(average on my server)(still the same at 9g a gem), and it keeps going up as the gem gets higher. I would rather take a consistent 18g over a gamble.

    What they mean by cut and vendor is exactly that. Cut the alicite into any cut version of the gem, then sell them to the vendor. The cut gems sell for 9g to the vendor.

    Im having a different problem, I have so many Nightstones, more than I can sell on JC Daily day. So should I just start cutting and vendoring them? Or hold onto them and hope something gets added on an expansion.

    And myself, I cut the Alicite into jewelry to DE. I get an occasion proc of a blue which I sell for 75-125 and also if I get Lesser Celestial Essence - I do Enchant Chest - Mighty Stats which sell for 100 gold. which I believe in the long run equals out to more than just a vendor cut gem.

    I also transmute my Carnelian into inferno or save them for Shadowspirit diamonds.

    Don't forget Nightstones are pretty good for levelling up jewelcrafting too (475 to 495). However, if you do have any sort of stock left, then craft s and DE them, the results are pretty nice. And since you've mentioned them: yes, throwing a few into the mix is a great idea. Personally, I break up a few greaters into lessers so I can throw in 20 or so scrolls each time I do a shuffle; with lesser essences at ~20g and scrolls at 150g, it's a nice little extra

    Seems like everyone's results vary. Personally I'm drowning in Zephyrite. The Zeph daily has come up maybe once in the past two weeks so everyone is probably holding onto a bunch. It's sitting right at 9g on the AH and doesn't move much on daily days because people post a ton and supply outstrips demand. I've debated selling them all in trade for 8.5 or 8g just so I don't have to cut every single one.

    Ugh, Im such and idiot. It is the Zephyrite I'm drowning in NOT the Nightstone. So I am obviously not the only one having the problem. My Nightstone actually move well.
