It is now confirmed. The old Icy prism from Wrath of the lich king has had it cooldown removed. This is an excellent "stealth buff" for us gold makers. You now have the ability to obtain wrath rare & epic gems and also a chance at dragons eyes all for the low cost of 1 icy prism.
Let's take a look at how much one Icy Prism will cost to craft - I'm using TUJ and I'm picking a random server for every item:
- Frozen Orb - 9-15g
- Chalcedony - 2g
- Shadow Crystal - 2.5g
- Dark Jade - 2.5g
What people don't realize is that Yeah cataclysm gems might be better off for the higher levels, but guess what? Cataclysm gems require an item level of 285+ while the old wrath gems do not! By selling wrath gems you're able to target the people who are under level 80 and are simply leveling through content. I've been selling wrath epic gems for a while at 100-150g per gem and I'm not surprised they're selling, nope not one bit. Gold's inflated so much to the point where 100g is child's play, I mean honestly I know you can go make/earn 100g in under 5 minutes regardless of what you're doing.
People will and ARE buying wrath gems, it's an essential part of human beings to fulfill that missing socket in X gear, thus they run to AH and end up buying these gems. With the cooldown removed from the Icy Prism you now have an easy way to obtain wrath gems, hell you could even buy Saronite Ore and prospect it to obtain wrath rare gems and materials for the icy prisms themselves. This market is golden and those who are in it are raking in thousands of gold per day simply because no one is in it!
What are you waiting for? Start making those Icy prisms and start raking in extra gold per day! Who knows, wrath gems might even sell better than cataclysm gems on your server!
