Ah, for the glory days of TBC when for some unknown reason, Motes sold for less per 10 than Primals did. The endless hours I spent farming up Motes out of the AH, stacking them to Primals...and killing on the house.Good times. Good profits. I don't think that the Crystallized/Eternal market ever did that.

For a while after frozen orb trading came in you could make a few G by buying up eternals and breaking them into crystallized, but the volume was never huge.

Now it's just the other way around. Crystallized normally sell for more than their Eternal counterparts. It's easy to make some cash if you know the general prices for the eternals and see a low curve, buy a few, turn them into crystallized and sell them for more. (i'm not saying, of course, that a single crystallized sells for more than 1 eternal, simply that the price of 1 crystallized x10 > Price of 1 Eternal)

This dicotomy has just about always been there (since BC - the start of 10 little things to make 1 big thing). You can make some money on the AH with just this technique. The problem is that it's incredibly volatile. It has to do with what the players need. If a AH guy is selling stack of 20 (big thing) and a guy wants 2 (little thing), he doesn't mind paying 3x more than normal, since the price isn't big anyway (a few gold). So, when you work the market, have stacks of 20, but also stacks of 5 and 1, and stacks of 2 little things. That's the best way to spread. Its like taking a twenty dollar bill and giving 1 $10, 1x $5, 4 x $1, and 4 quarters.
