So what's the new shuffle ?
Below is chrat produced by Z-man from the JMTC forums and has kindly allowed me to use it
So as you can see that both Obsidum and elementioum actually are the same when it comes to the shuffle .But i would suggest going for elementium as its more easially farmed and yeilds rare gems more often .
To Best make use of the shuffle you need a Jewlcrafter , Alacmist and a enchanter .So early on in the expansion there are a couple of main issues to consider
Is the market overinflated ?
What can sell the jewlly for ?
As both ores have a base price of 9g per 5 . When considering to either cut into gems or to make jewllery make sure that your end profit is profit and not a loss .
Also if you have access to a alacmist then the transmute of the lesser gems into rare gems is also of great benefit and can yeild a strong profit .
At the moment on my server the uncut gems sell for 50g each and the rare for 100g each . So i am buying out any ore under 175g a stack . If I craft the jewllery I can normally sell them for 50-100g for green and 250g up for the blues . So overall i make a profit on this at the moment .
Also dont forget the old Saronite shuffle with people dumping both ore and gems onto the market .
Are you shuffling yet ?
Do you want a more indepth writeup or trial on this ?
