I definitely saw the decline of the glyph market coming with this patch.Although I have a scribe, I plan on trying to gather as many of these books of glyph mastery and take advantage of the market as it is now. I highly doubt that I'll be able to make 6,000 gold off of the glyphs. I'm fine with waiting until these books drop significantly in price.With almost all professions you notice a decline towards the end game as everyone gets their gear maxed out.In order to have professions be sustainable, each will need to offer some sort of consumable. However, with the removal of sharpening stones, oils, and drums (past 80); Blizzard has made it a point that they don't want you to have to get tons of consumables to finish an encounter (and they balance the encounter taking into consideration their availability). Therefore, giving a consumable to each profession will just take that much more of a toll on raiders.It would seem that the gathering professions are truly the only ones that will always be able to make money. Perhaps this is the profession model that Blizzard planned for. Let the raiders pay the "working class" to get their raiding consumables. Redistribute the wealth.

"It would seem that the gathering professions are truly the only ones that will always be able to make money. Perhaps this is the profession model that Blizzard planned for.

Redistribute the wealth."I hear what you are saying, but you are wrong - gatherers will feel the pinch just as much as crafters, for example if demand goes down significantly in the glyph market herbers will feel the pinch in the amount of herbs they sell which will cause an over abundance of herbs resulting in a decline in price - the same holds true for miners and skinners.Don't over-react, as long as Blizzard screws with peoples talents and class mechanics glyphs will sell just as well as any other profession goods. There are still 3 and in some cases 4 specs for each class and the respec option at trainers, correct me if I'm wrong, will only respec the current spec you have active. Knowing how easy inscription has had it in Wrath for making gold, a respec will probably clear your glyphs. (probably not but I bet I got a smile out of you)
