do you think the xmute factor of raw gems out ways the cut vendor cost of green quality gems? i currently prospect cut then send all greens to my alch to make metas

Absolutely, I do too. If the price for metas ever floored though, I'd go back to cutting them and vendoring them.

Depending on the time and place, selling raw meta gems might be the way to go. Probably not at the moment, but I remember in wrath, using my alchemist to transmute earthsiege diamonds and selling them raw, because the cut diamonds were often less expensive than the raw ones (due to people using meta gems to level up to max JC at that time).Especially if you are xmuting a lot of those gems, selling raw could definitely be a way to go, as in my experience there seems to be a lot more jc'ers out there than there are alchemists who do a lot of transmuting. YMMV.

Derp, I also meant to say that there isn't a huge incentive for people to level their JC'ing up to 525 right now, but once epic gems hit the market, there will be. It's likely that similar to wrath, most JC's will be using meta gems to level their jc'ing up the last 10-15 skill points or so, so when the patch comes that introduces epic gems, you may find selling raw shadowspirit diamonds more profitable than cut ones.

Yeah I caught on to that little trick the other night as well. Good stuff. =D
