Heheh... I noticed a few new names in the glyph market today. What I find funny is that they're just dipping their toes in with maybe 10 pricey glyphs... Come on! Jump in; you won't drown.And I'm so giddy... I got my 2nd piece of hatemail today, but it's been so long, it felt like my first! Weeeeee!!

Couple of new players in the Glyph market on my server, too. One of them seems to be online literally 24/7, and so instead of trying to compete (constant undercutting is boring), I've dropped prices to just slightly over cost to ensure that, while they may sell more glyphs than me, they aren't making much of a profit. If I sell even one glyph a day, I make more than enough to pay the auction house fees.Eventually, they'll give up ... or they'll buy me out and force me to make more glyphs that I'll keep posting at ridiculously low (but slightly profitable) prices. Win win for me. Wonder how long they'll keep trying?

@wutsconflagIts your $15, but i've been there. Do you really want to waste your time in a game that only you are playing? Its very demoralizing to sell your glyphs at cost. What you could do is keep researching if you aren't complete, keep a high threshold like 10g, check 2x a day, or esp during the morning, most people aren't on. Add your competition to your friends list, get their pattern. Don't be above posting as soon as they log off. If they are too low, buy out their glyphs. With the changes for cataclysm, every glpyh will be profitable. Also don't ignore runescrolls, snowfall, darkmoon cards, vellums. In my bad market this was 90% of sales . Do you have deep pockets? Keep the herb prices high. You can store an infinite amount of herbs just by sending them from one bank toon to the next. Very few people stay in the market for more than a month, just be persistant and don't blow everything right now, esp when you have so many opportunities elsewhere.

@ RobActually, I'll waste, at most, a half hour per day or every two days doing this. When I was posting twice per day, I'd actually spend an hour and a half (collect gold, scan, cancel undercut, make new glyphs, post). Sure, it was worth a lot more gold without the competition, but it took more time, too.As far as my current competitors go, like I said, this guy is online all the time (it's possible he sleeps at some point between 2am and 8am, maybe). In the morning when I log in, after lunch, in the afternoon or at night, he's sitting there. Within ten seconds of posting a glyph, he's cancelling and undercutting by a copper.At first, I thought I'd play his game, but now I've decided to just starve him of profits. Takes less time, I can post my glyphs for 48 hours and just not worry about them (except to replace any he buys out).At some point, he'll give up and go away. Until then ... *shrug* ... I can do something else that doesn't take a lot of my time. As for the demoralizing comment, that's what I'm hoping for. I've driven out two or three competitors this way in the past. *eg*Oh, and I appreciate the recommendation about scrolls, cards, etc. Unfortunately, the Darkmoon cards are generally a wash (except for the occasional Nobles card that sells) since most of them sell for less than mats theses days unless you get very lucky. I generally have an overabundance of Snowfall ink, so turning it into Runescrolls and selling it is always nice (when it sells). I haven't really looked at selling vellums, but I suppose those could be worth some gold, too.

@Wuts- Vellums can be very lucrative, ESPECIALLY armor/weapon vellum IIs because there generally aren't many people who bother with them- but demand is very spikey (based on when people are plvling their enchanting).
