Blizz developers are nothing if not a) overworked and b) prone to duplicate content. I have 3 tabs of pyrite ore right now. I've been buying it for months. Now that it's starting to show up under 100g/stack I'm getting deeper into the market. Prospecting high level ore for gems is simply too elegant a solution for Blizz to ignore based on the relatively few number of gold goblins hoarding it right now. Once the gems are released, I expect to make back my initial 25K - 50K initial ore investment in the first couple of weeks with everything else being gravy. I have two JC's which have been doing the dailies (and stockpiling the tokens) so that once the gems and epic cuts drop, I will be in place to have every cut ready to be sold.And if it doesn't pan out the way I hope, oh well, back to grinding Blackened Deviate Delight recipes :)

@ worgynfreeman (nice name btw)I sure hope you are not on my realm because I have been doing the same thing with my JCs. I would hate to have some strong competition when the market opens up :P

However, it's not unheard of for Blizzard to change the way mats are acquired.For example, Engineers had become accustomed to the floating clouds in Outland and Northrend that they could "mine" to get more elemental mats. But Bliz broke that pattern in Cataclysm and had the extra Engineering elemental mats come from gathering professions (screwing all the Engineers who had a crafting second profession).Now, I do think that prospecting pyrite will probably be the source of epic gems. But Blizzard's past behavior indicates that it's not a sure thing.
