And now that everyone knows this method, I give it a week before this, too, is no longer profitable.

This method has been around since the, or very close to, beginning of Wrath in some variation or another. The odds are that this isn't going away until the next Expansion. I'm sure the community is grateful for this all similar helpful comments

I'm sure it's been around for a while, but that doesn't mean that it was known to a lot of people.I myself have used this method quite a lot, but it becomes drastically less profitable when even as few as 4 other people begin to do the same thing.

What makes things like this profitable is the fact that there is little competition. With competition comes inflation of material costs and smaller profits (due to undercutting).

What makes this method profitable is the fact that you are turning something plentiful (like saronite ore) with something much less plentiful (gemstones). If the prices of gems temporarily drop because more people are posting auctions, then stop posting your stuff until the market rights itself (or even buy up the cheap gems on your own and hold them). Conversely, if this causes the price of saronite to rise, unload your own stocks and do one of the dozens of other ways to make gold. In fact, if the gem price is too low but the saronite prices don't rise, then buy up all of the cheap saronite and hold it. If you can control the supply, you will force other competition out of the market.TL;DR version: giving people who are unfamiliar with the market more information isn't going to make things hard for you, just adjust to the new conditions and wait for them to leave.
