Mining is over populated on my server as it is and miners can not farm for a living any longer. This just makes it so that crafters will be able to get materials a little cheaper and hopefully lower the prices on those also.That epic flying looks more and more ridiculous at 5,000g when players can't earn the gold through professions, way to drive players to the gold sellers.

Try mining older minerals- outland, wrath, and late vanilla minerals are all expensive and the bots typically ignore them

I'm sorry, but that statement (about epic flight) strikes me as a little silly. I'm terrible at professions and the AH (in fact, I only really level my professions to get the bonuses, not to play the AH) and all of my max level characters have epic flight, with three of them with 310%. It's not that hard to make 5k gold just by questing alone. Just from taking a character up from 80-85 you get about that much. Just because people don't profit from professions doesn't mean they need to run off to a gold seller to get the money to buy perks. ;)

You want to know what makes money for Miners?Fel IronKhoriumCobaltSometimes you can count Mithril and Thorium in there, but with the glut of nodes added to Azeroth, most of the Vanilla ores aren't worth as much as they used to be (though you'll want to check your AH, of course).Why, you ask? Due to the way Blizzard added expansion content, the later ores (Adamantium and Saronite) aren't as necessary, any longer. This is why the "beginner" ores for each expansion still bring in plenty of cash. I was selling Fel Iron for 95g a stack while leveling an alt recently, compared to the 20g I was lucky to get for Adamantium.As always, check your AH at various times of day/night and during the week and on the weekend. You'll notice trends, and can sell at the right times to make the most gold.Khorium? Khorium sells for astonishing amounts whenever it goes up because engineers want their mount. Since Blizzard hasn't added a transmute for this particular rare ore, and because so many people aren't mining in the Outlands anymore, it's even rarer, which pushes the price sky high. I normally sell each ore for anywhere from 50g to 200g - and they always sell within a day or two.

@wutsconflag The people on my server must have all run screaming from engineering then, because while I was finishing up Outland Loremaster, I dug up plenty of fel iron and khorium, and I couldn't get rid of *any of it*. After 3 weeks I just wound up giving it to one of my guildies. :/Of course the gold sellers and bot farmers utterly destroyed most of the markets anyway, so that's likely the other problem.

Pretty much any ore but Obsidium, Elementium or Pyrite sells right now. Why? Because people are too lazy/bored to mine it, have a surplus of gold or can make better use of their time by buying and listing or crafting and listing. Then there are the people who want to have buffs from 2 crafting professions. These are consequences my friends. If they made it too easy to farm or professions too easy to level it would be a lot harder to earn gold. (some would argue-and have the gold to prove- that it already is too easy to make gold)

If you can't scrape 5K together, something's wrong with you.If you give one red cent to those goddamn gold-selling parasites, then cancel your subscription now. You're f_____g up our game.
