Show Me The Money: Tailoring
I am by no means an AH warrior. Most of the time, I am lucky to have 1,000g on all my toons combined. I don’t farm (more than I have to), I don’t quest (much), I don’t play the AH.
On my server, you can generally get the mats for around 1500-2000g. The Moonshroud sell for 3,000g, and the Bejeweled for 3,500g. If you have Emblems of Triumph lying around, you can drop your cost even further by turning in emblems for the Crusader Orbs.
I have found that the market is best on the weekends. There seems to be a fairly decent demand for them from players trying to catch up to the current raiding gear level. For players not currently raiding Ulduar, ToC and/or ICC, their only options for bracers are the 213 emblem bracers, and the 232 bracers that drop off of Falric in HHoR. That makes being able to buy the crafted 245s really appealing.
I have even seen the patterns for sale at less than the going price for the finished product. Which presents a great buying opportunity if you have a max skilled Tailor without the pattern.
