If you had 700 "STACKS" of herbs waiting and you only made 6000g you took a big loss. Low level herbs were selling anywhere from 50s to 1g a piece on the servers that I play on. When Inscription was revealed as using herbs the price of a stack of silverleaf reached highs of 23g a stack on Blackrock. If you sold those herbs instead of the glyphs you should have made between 7,000 - 14,000+g. Inscription looks like it might be fun - but it was a trend that everyone wanted to hop on that boosted the sales of herbs and created a surplus of glyphs. I bought all my major glyphs yesterday for no more than 40s a piece. The minors were around 2g. But the price of low/mid level herbs is still just as high. It will eventually normalize, but for right now Inscription I dont see it as a money making tool.

@hold upTo the contrary, I think that if someone was able to level inscription up, probably glyph his character and his alts (maybe guildies too?), *and* --on top of it all-- make over 6000g, I would think that is an accomplishment regardless of how much low level herbs are going for. Sure, technically it's a monetary loss (which is to be expected when you're leveling any given profession), but there's so much the person gained in the process as well. At this point in the game, I don't think it'd be wise for anyone to seek out inscription to actively make money. If money is an issue, then recouping some of the loss by way of the AH is not a bad idea.
