Ugh, the final nail in the coffin for prospecting... unless epic gems come out at least. I haven't seen any ore on the AH for under the floor price for a couple weeks anyway, I think it's gotten to the point where mining is not worth people's time anymore.

If that's the case, it might be worth stockpiling ore for when epic gems DO become available. Work now while no one is farming, then hit the auction house to take advantage of the inevitable grossly-inflated prices when epics are added. While everyone else is competing for farming routes, you can sit back and post auctions all day...

Prospecting will be fine, as long as you take everything to the next step (cut/disenchant/transmute). What this kills off is prospect-to-vendor, which allowed unlimited prospecting with an NPC standing by to buy up everything the market doesn't want.

On most servers, you can make money with prospecting with ore prices as high as 45 gold per stack. Many you can make profit with higher ore prices. You just need to be smart about things.This should actually lower ore prices again because the demand will go down and people will still try to make money through gathering.
