Since we've been eagerly awaiting the release of those missing T5 Comp/Decomp recipes for so long, I got to thinking what would be the financial impact of their release be? I'm particularly looking at the current cost of T5 Stones as an example.
Currently, on Bijou, the dusts used to create T5 stones vend for about 17-18s/ea for the Shining Gem and Shining Spirit Dusts. The Shining Soul Dusts only go for about 4s/ea since they can be Comped from Lustered Soul Dust at a rate of 3:1. T5 Stones sell at an average of about 270-300s for Elrue, 2.7-3g for Lix, and 27-35g for Xir.
So what do you think will happen when these recipes become available? Will the price of T5 Stones drop because Comping Lustered/Glowing into Shinings will become more common? Or will you see a huge spike in the price of Lustered/Glowing dusts while the current prices for T5 Stones will remain unchanged?
I, for one, was dead wrong predicting the price drop on T5 Stones when they requirements for Elrue creation were changed (it went from 15 of each dust per Elrue to 6 of each). I thought the prices would go down, but unfortunately, the buy price on the dusts went through the roof, jumping from 4-5s to the now astronomical 17-18s.
So what are your thoughts? If you want to chime in on Scroll or Potion productions, feel free.
