Is there really profit here? I mean, the more useful meta gems do sell for a reasonable price (although I don't know how cost works in for my server), but I buy a couple dozen metas each week because they're listed less than what I get by selling them to vendors.

There is profit, but there are only, well, about 4-6 metas that you can sell on the AH for even a halfway decent price.

You're probably buying the pvp reward metas.

I bought two meta gem recipes, one healer (intellect+mana restore) and one cat-rouge style. They sell on our server for 50-70g. The primal either takes about 5 minute to farm, or about 20g (consider buying a Frozen Orb if its cheap), and the 2 gems cost about 5-10g each (if you prospect saronite it might be even cheaper). Not a huge profit but not a huge investment either. They sell very easily, i usually sell 5-6 on a raid night (with no cancelling, etc). Also, I do think that transmute specialization is proccing more on metas than on epic gems. I only had a few x2 epic gem procs (although i have two transmute alchemists), but with meta, I almost always have double proc, and sometimes even x4. Maybe I was just lucky but I would calculate 1 set of mats = 2 meta gems.

@Neyssa you're not looking at a large enough sample size. Over the long run, every transmute specced alchemist gets a 20% boost to the number of metas they've created.
