    After I do the Shuffle, what should I do with common gems? Transmute them to rare?

    After I do the Shuffle, what should I do with common gems? Transmute them to rare, or sell on vendor?

    You have several options:

    -cut (and hope for perfects)
    -craft into jewellery
    -craft into jewellery and disenchant
    -transmute
    -sell raw

    I've published a spreadsheet which can help decide what gives the best profit The Golden Crusade Shuffler

    Thanks.
    I actually used your Shuffler one time, last week, and it gave me each day a profit of 10k gold, but it was last week, now it's only 6k of only Ghost Iron Ore.

    Well prices are still fluctuation so that might be one cause, also if you downloaded a new version a few things have changed over the past versions that could also cause some differences

    Yeah, I just tried the new one, and gave me 6k profit everyday.
    I hope it gets better, since I'm tired of seeing people flooding the AH with stacks of ores and herbs, undercutted by 10g or 20g, when they are already selling at 50g.

    I like to do a combo-platter with these gems. I craft jewelry, sell the blues and DE the greens for mats to make enchants to sell. But I also keep a couple of stacks of each color on hand to craft gems and hope for perfects. This is especially important right now, when I don't have all of the rare cuts. It's really the only way to take advantage of some of the more profitable markets. (I guess I could spend a boatload of gold to do all of the discoveries, but this is working for me.)

    I've been following a similar strategy as @Bigby. My decision is usually based off my stock of enchanting mats and whether or not I'm up to the task of prospecting, crafting, AND deing. Sometimes I'm a lazy goblin

    At what point do we start considered vendoring? The market is saturated right now and there is not enough 90s on my server to fully support the shuffle.
    All enchants and enchanting mats are not selling.

    A "combo platter" is really the only way to go since you'll almost always have different amounts of each uncommon. You could mostly do one thing like crafting the green rings to disenchant, but once you've got too many of something like roguestones, it's best to craft something that takes only that specific gem. That could be the ilvl 450 jewelry or it could be uncommon gems hoping for a proc. I'm finding that the 450 jewelry is giving me enough return to keep me empty of serpent's eyes--I'm buying them from people dumping them in trade as much as I can. At first it looked like serpent's eyes would be worthless since the shards proc so much and I'm sure that's why I'm able to get them via trade so cheaply (although they're around 60-100g on the AH), but given that the 450 jewelry takes six of them apiece, they go fast crafting those. Perhaps they will become worthless once people stop levelling and no longer care about ilvl 450 jewelry, but for now, they fly off the shelves. Only real problem is the higher cost of posting them and constant undercutting, but I can repost for 12 hours 10 or 20 times and still be highly profitable most of the time.

    Do you mean vendoring the uncommon cuts that don't proc a perfect? I do that already. If you mean vendoring without even trying to cut a perfect or without crafting as many ilvl 450 rings and necks as you have serpent's eyes for, then all gems/rings/necks/enchants would have to be TOTALLY tanked to do that, i.e. perfects selling at ~20g, necks, rings selling barely above ~100g, and enchants selling below ~100g. If that were happening I'd craft it all to perfects or crafted enchanting scrolls that I think will rise in value and let them stack up to at least a few bank tabs which should take QUITE a long time.
