The people selling these BoEs from Firelands at such extortionist prices are in a word, stupid. These are people who have gold fever, got a hold of a juicy piece of gear they know people will want and putting it at a price they WANT. The problem is that they are not identifying the market for those items at all! The people who are most likely to want and buy those epics are not the people sitting on 100K+ gold. That group of players tend to be either intense raiders, AH campers or people who play a long time and DON'T spend a lot of gold. You can expect to probably only have a 1% chance of selling to this market because they are highly UNLIKELY to buy it for varying reasons.The real market for these items are those sitting in the tens of thousands of gold area, the less intense raiders who are not likely to see new gear immediately. Looking for a way to boost their DPS so their guild can down bosses, or nonraiders with a fair amount of gold. Listing it at that area for 20K gold would probably bump you into at least a 50% chance of selling. But again, these people are not identifying their markets, being greedy with gold lust and generally moronic. Especially since the previous tier of content is laughable save for some bosses which drops 359 which satisfies many more casual player's interests in gear. If I were fortunate enough to get that Raneseur again or the tanking trinket, I would list it for several tens of thousands gold less than what it is currently listed. I know the market looking for that, and will sell so much faster and make a larger profit in that time than those selling for 100K+. Even if it is some AH camper that buys it and then reposts it for that high value, they still won't make money on it.
