The Frostweave farming season has started!
Bags always sell well. We all want them, we all need them, and we always want bigger ones. No surprise that frostweave bags are one of the easy to sell items on the auction house. With easy I mean that you won’t be undercut and are stuck with them for a while. Post them, they sell. Not much competition if you just undercut by a few gold only. They sell like hot cakes.
After Cataclysm came out, the drop rate of frostweave cloth was lowered immensely, you know, to the they-just-don't-drop-anymore kind of rate, and the price of this frostweave cloth has sky rocketed.
In my opinion, with vendors, bank access and mailboxes everywhere, no-one really needs the bigger overpriced bags. But paying 100-200g for a 20 slot bag is definitely worth your gold. At the moment they sell for 200g on my server. The thing is that they stay just under the price of 22 slot embersilk bags.
With patch 4.2 the drop rate of frostweave cloth is very high again, and it is time to farm and sell cloth & bags before the prices start dropping. Also, at the time of this writing, frostweave cloth is really in low supply, and you can easily farm these for huge profits. Farm these with your tailor to get the extra pieces of cloth, a great activity whilst waiting in the queue for a battleground random heroic dungeon.
Of course, get rid of your stockpiled cloth and bags now the prices are still high.
Long term considerations: prices of frostweave will go down, this will only accelerate the prices of embersilk going down, by a lot (spiral effect + people be stuck with unsold bags / patch effect is over, not much left to craft). They can even go down enough to make DE for shards feasible in the foreseeable future.
By the way, if you want to be nice to new players, you can buy 14 slot Draenic Leather Pack
from a vendor in outland for 12 gold. Give 4 of them to a new player (48 gold) to get started, this will be very helpful to them. If you low on gold, buy the Runecloth Bags from the auction house, when you upgrade to bigger bags, you can simply resell these or send them to your friends / alts (not bind on equip)
