The qq is incredible. "1000s" on gems and enchants? Remember no one bought weapons, so how expensive are these other enchants? Maelstrom Crystals are a dime a dozen, celestials and shards did not spike in price. 20000 honor on one toon in a week? Your guildy needs help. He needs to spend some time outside, or at least get an alt. I had 5 toons capped at 20K and a stockpile of enchanting mats waiting for a price spike that didn't come. 20K honor and new demand for my auctions? Bring on Tuesday!

The demand spike sent enchant and gem prices shooting up briefly during the transition, before falling like a rock again on my server. Maybe you missed the window?

There was a huge spike in gems and enchants during two weeks after the patch, and is just barely starting to normalize but not yet.Perhaps more savvy auctioneers grabbed the market before you did.Second a lot of people has many different interests, you can rage and QQ all you want about how they use their time, yet it doesn't help the situation in any way.In the end the fact is that a lot of money was spent on enchants and gems and while the honor might be of some help, by this point many might have already full 371 and a new set of full enchants or simply arent interested in flushing some more gold for new enchants for slight upgrades.
I bought weapons, though, they're still useful. I made a fortune that week selling enchants for thousands, and while crystals which were 200g/per that week have now tanked, heavenly shards are 100g per and celestial essence is pushing that as well. (source, undermine journal, horde realm statistics) Gems spiked quite a ways up for the first week of the patch, with people obtaining new gear and pushing firelands content. I don't have a jewelcrafter so I couldn't say exactly how high.

Man.. what server are you on?!Yes, maelstroms have tanked... but greater celestials shot through the roof on my server. I stocked up before the patch at 50g per, and was selling them easily for 150g+ that week.Even now, the wrist enchants, while a slow sell on the AH, go for 1.8-2.4k, and the boot enchants still garner 1-1.5k. Gems/metas can easily set you back 50-300g per...It's a fairly valid complaint, but really what more can Blizz do?I'm surprised that they're not addressing the other SNAFU... The one where the CP to HP conversion was supposed to go over the 4k limit for that transition week. I actually didn't spend any of my capped 4k honor on my alt that week, but I lost nearly 1k HP in that conversion cap, and I know others that lost a lot more! (At least my main will get the 4k HP compensation.)
