Orichalcum Ore is doomed.
With a supply of only 280,000 Orichalcum Ore and millions of players who will need it to level to Jewelcrafting 500, a disaster is surely looming. One website, gw2crafts.net, has a write up that believes it will cost 772 Orichalcum Ore to level Jewelcrafting 500. If you divide 280,000 by 772, you get 362 lucky people who will manage to max out their Jewelcrafting to 500 before the Orichalcum Ore is completely used up.
What does this mean? The price of ore is going to go up and fast as other people realize this. Even now, people are investing in Orichalcum Ore because of the Four Winds Speculation. Today, which is typical for a weekend, I saw Orichalcum Ore spike almost a silver in an hour.
Get in now people and buy Orichalcum Ore, because word on the street is that recently data mined information suggests the new Jewelcrafting 500 patch isn't far away.
EDIT: For those doubting my credibility... don't forget my calls on silk scraps (12 copper to 2 silver) and Kharka Shells (200% increase).
