The time has come to proclaim that inscription is finally dead in the water. At least for me. There was a time when I was making a lot of gold from inscription. In fact I made over 100K from it and those were good times. 5 months ago inscription was still going strong and I still made a few hundred gold a day easily. On weekends I made 1000G consistently.
These days, I'm pulling around 60G a day and if I'm really lucky, I can make up to 100G. The truth is I don't even bother with inscription the way I used to. I'm mostly trying to clear my stock.
The competition has become a bunch of vicious sharks. Glyph prices oscillate wildly from 60G to less than 1G in a few days. Some of these guys seem to be 24/7 online, undercutting instantly and continuously. There's no point in trying to beat them. Besides, it seems that demand for glyphs has dropped.
Cataclysm will sign the final demise of inscription. In Cataclysm you'll be able to add glyphs to your "spell-book" or some-such interface, meaning that once you've added that glyph you can swap it at any time you wish, i.e. it becomes permanent, much like spells that you only learn once.
Let's see those undercutters undercut the Cataclysm glyphs to oblivion. That will render inscription truly dead.
For now, I'm just concentrating on other things. I continue to craft a limited set of glyphs, only those that sell for at least 20G and only 2 at a time.
It was good while it lasted.
