I wanted to make a quick post about something that I saw last night when I was on my Jewelcrafter. After I do my Jewelcrafting daily for my token, I head over to the auction house to stock up on the raw gems that weren't used for the daily that are running on the less expensive end.
On my Server, Nightstone should be renamed to Nightmare! Even when the raw gem isn't used for that Jewelcrafting daily, it still runs around 40g each minimum. So, if I see that it's less than that, I try to pick those up and hope that I get some lucky prospecting.
Tip #1: if you have spare raw gems that are part of the Jewelcrafting Daily that day, Post them on the AH. By around 8pm server time they will shoot from 10-20g each to 40-100g (depending on what it is). Post them in Batches of Three at a time because that's how many the Jewelcrafters need. If you don't enjoy selling your goods on the AH, you can always use the Trade Channel to Bark out that you are standing next to the Quest giver and have raw gems for that day.
Tip#2: If you are in desparate need of some quick gold, check out cut uncommon gems. Many Jewelcrafters are skilling up on huge batches of these and posting them in bulk on the Auction House. How does this make you money? Firstly, all cut uncommon gems vendor for 9gold each. When these Jewelcrafters post massive amounts of gems, they probably weren't paying attention to the vendor cost and just putting them on the Auction House without much thought. Check out Each Gem color and see if any cut uncommon gems are being posted for less than 9g. If so, buy them up and vendor them for easy profit.
The great thing about both of these tips is that you don't need to be a Jewelcrafter to make money from them.
