Ok I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet but the epic trinkets you get from Tol Barad dailies are in fact disenchantable. So postpone that mount and cash in while maelstrom crystals are still in demand.

Sorry i meant to say cash in while supply is still low (demand for this will only get higher) economics fail

That trinket was a _lot_ of hours of work. If I had spent those hours in heroics and won a chaos orb in a fifth of them, I'd have more disenchantable epics per hour, I think.

@Basil: I'm not a math whiz, but assuming your faction is any decent at keeping Tol Barad, most people have at least one toon that's exalted with Hellscream's/Baradin since it's so unbelievably easy to do with the extra dailies, especially if your guild has leveled enough to get the max bonus to rep gains.Also, commendations are BoA as of the patch, IIRC. So I suppose it's a question of taking a bit longer to farm for easy marks to get a sure thing, or rolling the dice in a heroic and hoping you get an orb. With my terrible luck, and the fact that my main's a tailor, I'm sticking to the former method.(Not to mention the fact that on my server, with the price crafted epics are still going for as compared to shards, any crafter can sell them for bank on the AH and just buy the sharsd.)
This was mainly directed at the people who already have bought 1 or 2 (1 for MS and 1 for OS) trinkets and are now wondering what to do with the commendations. I understand some people like the cosmetic aspect of the game but I'd take the gold over the mount any day. This also means that each of the Tol Barad Dailies now give almost 46 gold (approximately 19 as a quest reward and 26 gold (Crystal sold for 3k divided by 115 badges))

The new BH enchants for pvp also take a lot of those marks. Also, instead of comparing it against the time needed to earn a chaos orb, I should have compared it to the time needed to earn enough money to "tip" some blacksmith in trade enough for one chaos orb and you just buy the epic to be DEed.
