@Linda"Twill, do you realize that your desires are nearly the exact opposite of what skinners want? Someone who pays for their flasks or epic gems or 30k BoEs or legendary daggers or VotS by skinning would prefer much higher demand for skins"1- I'm a skinner. I have skinning. I don't do it, because it sucks. I would do it, but it SUCKS.2- In general, no. Your assumption that there is a high demand is false. Instead, with prices so high, people GIVE UP AND GO WITHOUT. I would have LOVED to buy my Resto shaman a full set of PvP 377 blues. Unfortunately, the cost of one is the same as the cot of the entire cloth set. So, I WENT WITHOUT. It's only better to have a low supply if the demand maintains. In this case, most people just say "fuck it" and don't get in to the market at all.TL;DR -I've looked into this. Skinning sucks. Don't think that a small amount of economics will make it seem okay. It's not, and should be better. Far, far, far better. If skins were easier to get per-mob, the skinner would end up selling more. The net profit would go up. Read this. Think of the current skinning market as a "price floor" because the supply isn't where it should be. It's like there is a skin embargo or something.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elasticity_%28economics%29
