    Living Steel

    Over the next few days people will begin making the 502 Reborn weapons. I've seen an incrase in the price of [Living Steel] already on my server since the patch, but I expect to see this price increase, even if only temporarily, as people start burning through Living Steel to make the new weapons.

    Each weapon (the 463,476, and 502 combined) takes between 12 and 15 [Living Steel] to make. While I'm sure a number of have the weapons as they've gone along, I expect that some are holding onto their [Lightning Steel Ingot] in order to craft it all at once. That'll be a nice spike in demand.

    Could be worth keeping an eye on over the next few days. If you have a stockpile I think the time to unload is coming up.

    There was a rather obvious price spike on Alexstrasza, it went from ~350 on Saturday to ~500 right now.

    Im also going with the "people are prepping for 502 weapons" line.

    I am debating the best way to be making my living steel with help from my tillers.
    I know this sounds a little off topic, but still for living steel.
    How are you getting your ghost iron ore, bars, and trillium for your living steel?
    Buying the mats off the ah or farming it your self or combo?
    What is your favorite seed to eventually get a living steel bar?
    Or just farm golden lotus and make other things.

    Personally, I purchase my GI ore from farmers or when I find deals on the AH. I'm still working through 5.2 stockpile so I'm not short on supplies yet. If I find some I hope to find some suppliers again; all mine were banned apparently. I transmute my own trillium bars as that tends to be a little cheaper then buying them outright.

    I use my farms for MoH. My miner also is my LW (I know, odd combo) so he gets use out of them.

    I have seen a nice spike on prices of Living Steel as well, however I don't trully believe that the reason why is because people are stockpiling for the 502 weapons.

    Having a look in the data from the realms I play on, both had an increased sale in Belt Buckles (more people doing the 5 parts of LFR from 5.1 and the 4 parts of 5.2 means more gear to people) and Plate gear (476, 496 and 522 so people can either progress with their guild of boost their ilvl). Put on top of that that the price of raw ore went up a little compared to 5.1 and there you go, you have more expensive Living Steel.

    I'm not saying that there ins't the odd Joe that thought about stockpiling for the weapons but I highly doubt that every single Blacksmith out there thought about it dried out the market to craft the weapons.

    And as Neo6488 said, the likelyhood of people saving up SoH is low (medium at best) which will slow down the influx of the wepons in the market.


    Or I might be saying a lot of rubbish and the near future will prove me totally wrong


    Cheers

    Actually thinking it through, i think this is more a delayed reaction to the iron ore shortage. On my realm the difference between ghost iron prices, and living steel prices, are giving a 40g price on the living steel cd, on some days you actually lose money crafting living steel.
    At some point the pressure is gonna give.
