So suffice to say I've noticed a complete decrease in meta gem profits on my server post-patch. So much so that I've decided to just see if I can sell off the rest of my supply with my current thresholds and hopefully I get lucky. I've noticed a pick up in the 77-80 and 83-84 item market, that being most of my profit for the last week or so, I've continue to buy them, but increased my margin from under 15g a item, to under 65g an item. Then, I sell them for between 245-500g depending on the item (eg. is it cloth, leather, mail or plate? Is it a 1h, 2h, or jewelry?). At first I was just trying it out, hence why I only bought 15g and below items, now I'm confident enough in the market to raise the risk factor a little.
I haven't been posting daily like I said I would, in retrospect I think I set that a little high. I think every couple of days will suffice just fine.
I think in my last post I stated my end day total was right around 42k gold. Currently, with my average sales with leveling gear, fish and the occasional meta as of date, I also sold my Lovebird mount that I've been sitting on for a couple weeks now for around 7500g. So the current total is around 55k ( I don't have WoW up at the moment so this is off of last nights session, so it might be off by a few hundred. Also given the fact that I haven't collected off of today's profits, so it might be off by a few thousand. At least I hope!)
I have considered more on transmog items, although I'm still not as confident about it on my server. I've sold a few item for a decent profit, some quite amazing really, but only a handful out of the dozens I have bought, so I will continue to monitor it and hopefully I can tell you from experience how much of a money maker it is. No doubt it is a money maker, but for how long and how much can you expect is what I'm trying to answer.
When I bought gear, like the leveling items, I set a personal max buyout of 15g and bought anything below. Selling them at 745g a piece, I think I've made a fair share of gold from it, but I want to see longevity.

Well, that's it from me folks! Deuces!
