I started out with 5-7 of each glyph I was able to make (I'm still missing about 40 researched glyphs) and posted them at 48 hours with 1 minute left till server was down. I was a nay-sayer, 'tis true! I thought "This glyphstravaganza isn't going to be nearly as substantial as everyone says it is, I'm just going to post everything for 50g. Psh, like I'll see any sales."
Boy did I see sales! I'd wager I got about 150 sales just in the first 20 minutes of uptime. I was pulling things at 50g down as fast as I could and reposting for 90g! It was nuts! As I had time I was buying out cheap glyphs and reposting, so the actual amount of glyphs sold will actually be higher than those I started with.
And the metas! Not to toot my own horn but I certainly hit the nail on the head there. I was selling them for 300g a piece like candy to the masses. I expected to see more people flood my market when the epic gem transmute thing turned out to be . . . painfully wrong for many, but no one's really invaded my market too much yet.
Things have slowed down now, I'm still making a lot of sales but at much lower numbers to compete with other people trying to move their inventory, getting more around 10-25g per glyph but considering I'd been diligently reposting just to get 2g for this glyph a few weeks ago I'm quite alright with that price.
At this point in time my take on it all is sitting at 46,245g from selling glyphs, metas, and the occasional epic gem. Not too shabby! I used some of it already to buy Faid's Kirin Tor Ring and Reins of the Grand Ice Mammoth but the rest will be tucked away for Cataclysm and alts.
I expect to make 5-10k more as my inventory depletes. Right now I'm considering retiring from the glyph market and instead focusing on smaller markets like metas, pets, vendor recipes, etc. But for now, back to cashing in on pieces of paper with words scribbled on them!
