Did you stockpile Truegold for 4.2?
Did you count your chickens before they hatched?
I’m seeing something interesting in my home server about prices of Truegold in 4.2
Truegold prices climbed before the patch, as players stockpiled, then peaked about 6 hours after the 4.2 release, and fell slowly but surely back to pre-4.2 prices. And today I started to see Truegold for sale in the AH at prices below the previous prices.
What I saw was players stockpiling, then artificially driving the prices high in a delirium of greed, thenÂ panicking wildly as everyone else did the same and the prices dropped, before finally throwing their entire stock at the Auction House for ultra low prices in desperation!
So that’s why I’m buying a few truegold bars today at under value prices, and will resell them over the coming fortnight at just over their normal value. If you missed the sales peak, please check your server for price crashes where players have panicked and are selling their stockpiled items for under their correct value. A few days ago I saw one player in Dalaran merrily transmuting dozens of dream emeralds in the hope of selling them for a fortune after the patch comes. I wonder how they feel now, with no rise in Dream Emerald prices.
Euripedes of WoWinsider has noticed it too.
Please don’t go crazy though and buy truegold at your server’s normal price and hope it will suddenly magically surge in a few days, just look for the normal peaks and troughs in the price wave and sell a few at a time at a good price.
My forecast for Truegold prices: a slump as players panic sell their stock, then a slow and bumpy drive upwards as the new patterns become available over the coming 4-6 weeks.
