I must disagree :)Saronite's market is so much larger than titanium that the only price change I see happening is going to be to titanium. In effect, the price of titanium will drop to exactly the price of 16 saronite ore, and the price of saronite ore will not move in the long run. How much does the ping pong paddle slow down when it hits the ping-pong ball? Sure, it will spike a little higher after the patch because of last minute speculators, but it's entirely too easy to farm saronite for that effect to last long. In the end, the amount of titanium that is needed for crafting (not for making epic gems) is too small to register on the saronite scale. This goes for the leather -> arctic fur conversion too.

I agree entirely. I don't think there is going to any long term price increase for any of the items. There will be the normal patch day spike but in the long run (a few weeks) all the prices will fall unless there is some aspect to this situation we have not been told about.

You have to take into consideration that there is still a lot more saronite available, so even a small increase in price will have large consequences. I'm not so sure that 30-40% is accurate, but it will definitely be substantial.

@Dazaras What I mean is that the price increase will be so small that it won't be noticeable beside the normal market swings. In the long run.

I am looking at more accessible epic recipes in 3.3,which could open up a much larger market for Titansteel/Titanium than it is now. For example, Ulduar-equivalent lvl226 recipes, or even ToC-equivalent lv245 recipes, they won't alter the game when 3.3 is out.
