I haven't been updating a lot lately, sorry! I've been doing a lot of rep grinding. Lots and lots of rep grinding. And dying in Zul'Gurub. Lots of dying in Zul'Gurub.

I finally finished up Honor Hold, which means I'm hopping back out of the primal elements market. I am fine with this, because I really do not need to run Heroic: Shattered Halls any more. Ever.

So you're grinding Steamwheedle Cartel rep, you poor poor person )

In other, more exciting news, my enchanter is finally to 425 skill. You know what that means...

Get down with your bad self, little worgen priest. Get down.

That's right. Awwww yeah, it's time to get on the proper Obsidium Shuffle train. Updates on that in the future.

Chocolate Cookies are still selling well. I've been selling a lot of fairly low profit margin, but still profitable, Hardened Elementium Bar. I also swam my mage down to Booty Bay, and am actually doing okay for myself selling Alliance vendor pets to the Horde. (And, slightly depressingly, Alliance.) I haven't really started in on cooking recipes apart from the Roasted Moongraze Tenderloin yet, but I should.

I'm also starting to consider taking a day or two out of my Life-to-Air transmute schedule to transmute Fire in order to stock up for 4.2. We shall see.

Right now I am getting skill points from skinning mobs that are grey to my skinning skill level. (I'm up to Skinning 165 200 from skinning level 5-9 Timberstriders on Azuremyst.) This information might be to your advantage.

I've had Auditor disabled since the patch, so I'm not sure exactly how I'm doing on gold, but I can tell you:

1. I am selling tank gems like crazy. Largely Solid Ocean Sapphire (+60 Stamina) and Puissant Dream Emerald (+20 Mastery, +30 Stamina). Although I've also sold a couple Fractured Amberjewel (+40 Mastery). Still selling Demonseye and Ember Topaz uncut. Red gem prices are up, but I admit I'm a bit stingy with my rare red gems now that they're not free anymore.

1a. In all the to-do over cut uncommon gem vendor prices falling, nobody mentioned that rare uncut vendor prices rose. Uncut rare quality gems now vendor for 5g each, same as their uncommon-quality counterparts.

2. All my alts that can cook are doing the cooking daily, and spending their Chef's Award on Cocoa Beans. All beans are sent to my only 525 cook, who makes some Chocolate Cookies, and throws them on the AH. Not tons of gold, but it's gold.

2a. I need to make a reference of all the new cooking dailies and their rewards. Since you can only do one of fishing/cooking from the SW/Darn/IF set, it would be in your best interest to maximize rewards by choosing the right city each day.

3. With everyone rushing back to their 85s to try out the new dungeons, low-level mats aren't selling quite as well. (People aren't playing their lowbie alts right now; they're too excited about the new stuff!)

4. Portals to SW and Org have been put back in Shattrath (near the portal trainer) and Dalaran (in their old locations). Adjust hearthstones accordingly.
Was just looking through some Patch 4.1 PTR notes on MMO Champion to confirm some ret pally changes I'd heard about, and saw this:

Bold Carnelian, Solid Zephyrite, Subtle Alicite, Perfect Quick Alicite, Sovereign Nightstone, Regal Jasper, Resolute Hessonite, and any cut of uncommon gem now sells to NPC for 75 silver instead of 9 gold.

That's... kind of a big deal. Not just because of how it affects jewelcrafting, but also because of its effect on ore prices, and therefore Blacksmithing and to a lesser extent Engineering. Not to mention a possible effect on the Enchanting market.
