"Hello again Cold.
I'm writing because I would love to hear your thoughts about the following subject: Profiteering on rated BGs in Cataclysm.
With the introduction of rated BGs in cataclysm, I have been considering whether a market will rise for BoE profession items. Assuming BGs will work the same as now, with usable potions, flasks, bombs etc etc I have been speculating if I should invest in some of the follwing items:
Swiftness Potion: Swiftthiste & Briarthorn
Free Action Potion: Blackmouth Oil (Blackmouth) & Stranglekelp
Invisibility Potion: Ghost Mushroom & Sungrass
Purification Potion: Icecap & Plaguebloom
Living Action Potion: Icecap, Mountain Silversage and Heart of the Wild
The two big questions I have to ask.
1. Will hardcore Arena/BG players/teams want to stock up on these items?
2. Is there a profit to be made now, so close to Cataclysm with the prices as they are now, or should this stuff be added to a snatch list in Cataclysm with (perhaps) lower herb prices due to levelling?
Are there any other professions aside from Alchemy where we might see a chance for profit when the rated BGs go live? I can't think of anything besides EZ-Thro Dynamite II
