    [Archaeology] Dwarf Rune Stones

    I suppose this could apply to any of the keystones that are used in archeology, but particularly the since will be vendoring for 1000g. Have any of you given thought to stocking up on these now to anticipate a temporary post-patch surge of activity as the masses get all excited for archeology again? Right now they're going for 150g on my server and I'm snatching all below 200g. As per Mornia's Thread, the deposit cost on these items is minimal so there's no problem in just throwing them up on the AH at an inflated price on patch day and seeing if one or more people get over excited and buy out the AH. I can't see a scenario where the items lose their value since the added incentive of higher value artifacts will be there forever now.

    What do you think?

    EDIT: Does anyone have the power to put this 'a' into the thread title where it belongs please?

    You may get lucky the first couple days, but my gut feeling is that the hours required to get lucky with that item is pretty insane that most farmers will give up quickly and move back on to better GPH items. Even farmers won't farm for 10 hours a day for the RNG of a 1k item.

    When I saw the news about this, I immediately thought about trying to buy archaeology items from people for up to 2x of their vendor value. It could have been brilliant, except even the gray items are BOP.
