Yeh, I've noticed a big increase in the number of people leveling up inscriptions, and subsequently flooding the market with cheap glyphs. Of those people, a few have become regular sellers, which further depresses the market. This may or may not be attributed to the recent articles on gold-making with inscriptions. It could also be a cyclical thing, although I haven't seen a dip this large since I started playing the AH game. I'm curious if anyone else has observed a similar trend?

@Uncaringbear: what articles on selling glyphs? All I've done so far is advocate against it and not provide a guide. This is about enchanting scrolls :)

@uncaringbearYES! The last three weeks or so have been absolutely atrocious for the glyph market. It's gotten to the point where I just post once a day anymore because there's some saddies that just sit there and undercut you the minute you post. It's great for buyers, but the market's absolutely saturated for sellers these days.But if you stop posting altogether, you're letting them win and prices will go back up. You've just got to hope that you can hold out longer than others in the face of the campers. One thing you can do if you're just wanting to make them mad is set your fallback + max price to the threshold price (lowest price you'll sell for) and look at it from the perspective of saving time trying to undercut constantly. You may find that the campers are okay with selling a few for less than, say 3g, but when everything's 3g (it costs me approx 1g/glyph to create), they may be less inclined to continue to camp as it becomes much less profitable. Do that for a week or so (just be prepared for lower profits and higher volume as the prices are depressed) and see if their behavior changes. If not, they're probably just peachy making that amount of money per glyph and there's not much else you can do except hope that they get tired of creating so many glyphs for such a low profit margin.Good luck!

Glyphs selling for 3G won't get any purchase here. All glyphs here are selling at 1G-2G with more than 20 listed whenever you check AH. I don't even bother to create glpyhs anymore.
