The inscription market sucks on both my servers. My alliance server is filled with near constant undercutting by douchebag amounts.

As a leveling shaman, I found the prices to be quite annoying. For example, Glyph of Water Walking was going for 110g for a couple of weeks. Fortunately as of last night, the prices went down to 27g and I have one for my poor dwarf.

I've had loads of glyphs listed at around 75-100g, then someone posts about 10 of that glyph for 5-10 g, so I buy all his and relist again at 75-100g

@Jamie - The best way to avoid those crazy prices for your inscription is to get the mats yourself. Find a price for the mats since many herbs make a range of ink you can avoid all the cost of a high priced glyph if you offer the mats and a tip, just need to make sure you're being cost effective also.

That's the nature of crafted goods.If its a good listed in a profession guide - people will make it to level up, in droves. Said people only want to get out from under the item at cost or more.If you want to dominate that market - you can get rid of this false competition by buying them out quickly so they move up to the next step of leveling their profession and you relist the items for slightly more.- But you will always have the next one of them coming around the corner.

My response to undercutting by trivial amounts is to undercut by quite a bit. Eventually, the market WILL stabilize, but it may stabilize at a value below your costs.But if you're willing to go to the effort, you can act as a spoiler, creating an effective cap on prices. Depends on how determined you are.

"If its a good listed in a profession guide - people will make it to level up, in droves. Said people only want to get out from under the item at cost or more."Interesting. When I was crafting my way to 525, I always considered the option of merely reducing the money lost. If I could at least make more than vendoring an item I only needed to level skills, I would go that low if necessary.Of course that attitude is probably why I'm not rich in WoW.
