    Maelstrom Crystals - 4.1

    All trade goods available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors have had their prices reduced by 50%.

    Maelstrom Crystals are now available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors.

    Just saw this...interesting but in terms of gold making it means enchanters will have more competition on higher end patterns.
    A) Always
    B) Be
    C) Closing

    If this is for real, the prices will crash and burn

    This might actually be very good in terms of selling scrolls, allready have the power torrent one, but might get the other maelstrom recipes before the patch hit and hope i can make a nice profit from them..
    IF the price crashes offcourse, might try to get my 2 85's honor/jp capped, or will they wipe those?

    The price wont crash but it will get cut down a good bit... This might actually be a good thing because many of those high end enchants are too expensive to make for people to want to buy them often. Power Torrent for example... On my server it costs a tad over 8.2k to make right now if you buy the mats. With this change, it might drop to below 4k to make.

    If i can sell 2 a day at a 500g profit, that is better than one every 3 days at a 1k or 1.5k profit.

    Yup, this. I see the "crash" in MC prices as a huge boon to enchanters looking to make gold. More affordable MCs means you can make cheaper scrolls but still have good profit margins. Cheaper scrolls means more people can afford to buy them. More people buying them means more gold. Granted, there will be more competition, but that shouldn't be too difficult to deal with.

    My thinking is the same. I was avoiding picking up the 4.06 formulas, just because they were expensive to pick up, but also the scrolls were selling at cost or less. When crystal prices crash I think these will be a big money maker though. This is also relevant to the potential MC prices (from recent patch notes): "Maelstrom Crystals are now available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors".

    I completely agree. I'm gonna start buying the bracer recipes, but I'll wait for the crystal prices to lower before I start buying the vendor recipes. In the meantime I'm gonna do some homework and stock up on all the other mats required for these enchants.

    Figures I missed this and only found it after I made my own thread.


    Watch your AH. With this announcement, the bracer enchant recipes could start tanking as a reaction.

    I just hit 525 enchanting yesterday. I had been putting it off because I was going to swap it out for engineering once I had it maxed on an alt, but the leveling gods haven;t been as kind to me as I had hoped (or maybe it's the motivations gods...). I've picked up the heavenly shard recipes, but held off on the MC ones.

    As far as the impact on the market - I'm excited for this change. Combined with fresh content will help to boost demand the keep the profit coming. People will hop right into the new heroics, wipe, then go grab the better tier of enchants at more "reasonable" prices. I'll take it.
