I looked back to last weeks post on Stockpiling for 4.0.6 and compared my pre-patch post to what really has happened. Who will win? PrePatch Alto or PostPatch Alto? I know who I bet on.....
"I only really recommend this if you are willing to pay an exorbitant price for the new formula's, as they will hit the AH, and I feel that 10-15K will be a starting price for these"
"You have heard me talk about stocking up on Shadowspirit Diamonds. Yup. I got a few, actually about 50K in them as well. These will be a big hitter for me come 4.0.6 drop."
"Now there are some out there that are Stockpiling Volatile Life. Not that I am against this, but I feel the prices are not going to move signifigantly enough to take up the space in my bank for this."
This is a double edged sword. I took this screenie tonight, and by tomorrow night after raiding (and new gear is "found") the prices will rise by about 20%. They were last night, and that's a given on tues, thurs, and sat, as those are the raid nights on my server. Now by raising "a bit", I am right and wrong. As you can see, there is quite a few in the gem game, and I am not. Why? I didn't realize till just now actually. I didn't post any.
*Edit- Smudger at Warcraft Corner posted on his Inferno Ruby sales, it's nice to know that someone got some change out of these!
