Winners and Losers for Escape from Lion's Arch

Due to a certain back piece (spinal blades I believe?), iron and copper ore went up in value. Platinum did as well but I'm not sure why yet.

Iron Ore - up to 3 silver. Remember my doubling down on ores post?
Copper Ore - up to 1 silver. Remember my copper ore will rise again post?

If you followed my advice a few days ago to stockpile ore, then you reaped the rewards today. I made 7 gold per stack of iron ore!

Silver, mithril and gold are worth purchasing at the moment for the Jewelcrafting patch. Their prices are all down considerably.

Silk and linen are falling in price along with a few other items. I suspect that the huge influx of crafting materials and salvageable armor from the escape from lion's arch event will lead to dropping prices all around. This is a great buying opportunity, so don't panic by selling off your inventories.

At the moment, you might want to consider mining iron ore. Better yet, you might want to consider salvaging for iron ore... but by the time you read this that has probably been over exploited. I'll be in the escape from lion's arch event as much as possible because of the sheer volume of items that drop. Anyone with decent aoe can really benefit from so much zerging and tagging lots of mobs at once for looting later.

There's a lot going on right now with a lot of pieces in the economy shifting. Stay focused and keep paying attention to what's going on around you. Remember how the various aspects fit together, like what salvages into what and how the mystic forge might benefit you at this time.

    Gift of Wine, which will added soon and needed for ascended (colored) Spinal Blades is drawing my attention. Will it be from Bottle of Elonian Wine? Who knows.

    This morning before work I ran the easy rich iron nodes to get around 54 ore. Made nearly 2 gold with very little work. Strike while the iron is hot! :P

  1. Looking at spidy, although the price is still climbing, its climbing at a decreasing rate. going to hit the peek soon and then drop rapidly.
    when it does, it might be worth stocking up for long term investment. it's sure to rise again.

    How can you tell if white items are salvageable or were bought from the vendor?

    If it's divisible by 5 it can't be salvaged.

    What is "it"? I'm guessing level of an item.
