    Rune Cloth: Number one item to stockpile?

    Well, I was thinking about writing a post on Rune Cloth, but I wanted to check in with your guys and get some opinions.

    As of late, I've filled up two bank tabs with Rune Cloth. I found some pretty good deals. My reasoning behind this is three fold.

    1). Winter Veil - This one probably goes unsaid. Making the Winter Clothes and making them available while everyone else is out intranced in the new leveling adventures. Look for easy sales here from Achievement seekers.

    2). Leveling - Again this goes unsaid. With factions transfers being available out of the gate, I wouldn't expect a lot of people to jump on leveling all the way to 85 on a new Goblin or Worgen. Some will, but not enough to drive up the supply.

    Those are pretty much common knowledge. The most important reason however, I need to have some clarification on.

    3). Reputation - With new Goblin / Worgen mounts becoming available mounts collectors such as myself will be jumping at them. Will there be a Cloth War Effort turn in to raise your reputations with these factions? If so, Rune Cloth will sky-rocket in demand and having enough stockpiled for yourself and others could lead to major rewards.

    So my question is, to those of you have beta, is this turn in quest there? Any confirmation would be fantastic!

    I'm not sure worgen will have new mounts, so this is something that should work only horde-side.
    Anyway, I think runecloth will go a little higher in prices somewhere after Cataclysm... Not enough to advice buying anything that isn't a deal already, but enough to hold the stacks I have (which mainly come for farming Zul'Gurub -.- sadly no mount) until some weeks after Cataclysm.
    I think the best time will be after the urge to level to 85 has vanished from most of the population, but before all those who rerolled reach the levels in which runecloth is common. (remember that lots of people will be rolling new toons... not only for the new race/class combinations, but also to see the new quests and how the world changed)

    Wes, I wrote about stockpiling runecloth here but after learning that cloth reputation NPC is going away, I see no point in runecloth for your #3 item. Worgen will have no class mounts just the goblin but I will be using the city tabard. Hope this helps.

    Yeah its not there. With the new city tabards even if they were there runecloth would still not be something worth stockpiling for this reason. I would stockpile enough to make winter veil clothing and that would be about it. The potential profit for the storage space being used is way to low and the space could be used to stock more worth wile items instead.
    Not all treasure is silver and gold but it can be sold for silver, gold, and a little copper.

    Its been a learning lesson especially when Blizzard keeps changing the game/Beta. 1 decision has a avalanche effect on supply/demand of materials.

    I stopped stockpiling Runecloth a while ago because of the aforementioned changes. I wouldn't worry about it though - it always sells and the market is pretty volatile with peaks and troughs. Just hold onto it until it's expensive for a while and unload it then.

    Keep in mind that the Rep NPC's was a MAJOR reason moved so well. With that going away, I think the prices would go DOWN.

    Well, unloading now isn't going to have a drastic effect on me either way. I suppose I'll hang on to it for now. Demand may go down in the short term with the Rep turn ins going away, but I'm sure mid Cataclysm it will be worth a good bit. Long term investment with mediocre return I suppose.

    That sucks...a lot. I was counting on Runecloth being one of my all-stars.
