I've just taken a longsword +5 of tempestry off vendor at Owlshead as it was due to expire in a couple of hours. At the time I listed there really wasn't much on there to compare it with so I did my best guess on price taking into account what it cost to make. But now there are a heap of other longswords on it and there are items with comparable or better stats at significantly less price so I can understand why it didn't sell. However looking at those prices people are consistently asking for a lot less than the cost to make, given price of gold for enchants, silver for masterworks, gems for atunement (and better enchant bonuses). Surveying the market that seems to be the trend. So it looks like, if I want to craft I need to expect to take a loss on anything I make. That seems counter-intuitive to me. Shouldn't crafting add value? Is there are point at which crafting starts making economic sense?
