I would say that to make big G, you need to be diversified. Some days, I can buy cheap herbs and make gold on potions. Other days, I find cheap eternals for transmutes and belt buckles. On still other days, I'll find some cheaper frozen orbs that I can trade in for eternal fires and make pants enchantments. Same with enchanting materials and their end product, scrolls.Jewelcrafting is really, really tough right now though. About the only thing that makes any decent profit is... well I'm not giving away that secret, but it's a low-volume market anyway. The saronite shuffle is about as best as you can expect from the JC market, and that's a lot of time to get that thing going.Best of luck. Just farm a ton of stuff in the new xpac and save your G for that.

Yea, the shuffle and some other JC methods have been doing quite well in making me a fair amount of money, but a certain person recently noticed he has competition in the Skyflare department, got extremely pissed and has started shoving massive amounts of Chaotic's for 25g a pop and before then average price was about 37g, He's basically shut that market down, I don't see how he's making alot of profit either unless he was just sitting on a ----ton of supply

Also very solid advice. I never did the shuffle (much), but I think this is the scheme according to zamboni from just my two coppers (which is the best site to discuss making wow gold). Buy sarnonite CHEAP. Prospect for green quality gems. Cut or dump any blue quality gems (these will be also be worthless come cataclysm).Make level 400ish rings using saronite and said green quality gems.Either vendor the rings or disenchant them (hint, stockpile the materials until just before or after cataclysm, the price should increase as people try to level their enchanting).The real critical thing is that the amount you buy the saronite for has to be less than what you can vendor the rings for, else you lose money. You'll get money back from the blue gems but not all that much.

I cannot agree with this enough. It's the same thing as real life- sure, you can make big money without diversifying but eventually that's going to dry up and if you only had that option, you are SOL.Also, in response to the release of Cataclysm what I'm trying to do is not keep a stock of any epic gems, and I'm getting rid of my blue gems as fast as I can, though that's working out less than stellar due to slow sales on the blues. Epics I can usually get outta my bags within a week's time period (I have a transmute master and generally those are the only epics I bother with, though occasionally I'll spend some extra honor on gems here and there), but the blues keep piling up and that can be frustrating. Still, if worse comes to worse I'll unload them onto a lucky guildy for JC leveling- Though I try to sell everything, I'm not above a little charity ;)
