Gem Costs vs AH Pricing

  • #1
    Can anyone care to explain to me how people are selling Radiant Star gems at prices that don't make them a profit? Just crafting alone ends up being around 15.4 million gold, and I see Topaz and Amethyst going for 12.5million a piece. Even emerald and ruby, at 17million, don't end up with a profit with the 15% cut. So how are people selling so cheap? Am I missing something entirely that bypasses the crafting cost?

    It's probably a combination of not thinking or simply "I don't need this gem anymore and I need a quick infusion of cash, so I'm going to sell it below cost to get it quickly".

    This. Alternatively, people find some recipes, decide to craft their gems because they've got 100's waiting around in their stash and want to use them for something.

    Now, the Hardcore AH, that's another matter entirely. Flawless Square Rubies going for 5,700, whilst Flawless Square Amythests go for 50,000 +

    Its because of the Unbalance between RMAH and GOLD AH i think
