For the last couple of months I've been working on my hunter and warrior alts. My hunter just reached 80 about ten days ago, and since then I've been gearing her up a bit. Of course I started with crafting her some goodies as well as scoping the auction for BOE gear. I've also been going back to Kaliope's feral gear and looking for ways to beef her up - she's still wearing some 70 epics from last year. Ugh, I'm soooo last year!!
Some of the items I'm trying to get are the same for both gals: Ice Striker's Cloak, Titanium Impact Band, etc. I remember a few months back when I was making crafted epics, people were regularly posting them for less than the cost of mats. I hate doing that, so I just stopped making epics once I got my points. Luckily I was able to get enough points crafting gear for my druid and my rogue, plus a few items I made for guildies. They all know I'm a crafting obsessed nerd by now. After that I pretty much abandoned the idea of epics 4 profit.
But now that I'm shopping around, it seems the prices for many of these items have drifted back up. Where before you could pick up an Ice Striker's Cloak for 250-300g, now they are selling for 450-500g. I'm noticing similar trends with other crafted epics as well. With the leveling and Naxx gearing frenzy mostly over, could it be that crafted items are finally selling for reasonable prices?
What are you folks seeing on your servers, is this an overall trend or just an isolated thing?
