Since the release of World of Warcraft Patch 4.2, the auction house markets for both Volatile Earth and Volatile Fire have been in steady decline. The introduction of the new Firelands Invasion daily quests has created a massive influx of both Volatile Fire and Volatile Earth. Both of these Volatiles are easily obtained during The Firelands Invasion Starting Dailies. The Druids of the Talon daily quests during phase 2 or 3 are an easy source of Volatile Earth, especially for any mining characters.
The daily grind that is required of every character wishing to unlock all of the content and vendors last for around 30 days. This means there will continue to be a constant influx of both Volatile Fire and Volatile Earth as players unlock the new areas and also continue to repeat the quests over and over to complete the new acheivements. Right now is a buyers market for both Volatile Fire and Volatile Earth. The price will be down for a while as some players haven't even started their Firelands Invasion daily quests yet. And many of us still have alt characters that are going to be returning to that same content. Expect the influx of these Volatiles to continue as the vendor race continues.
Did You Stockpile Volatiles?
I hope you didn't stockpile Volatile Fire and Volatile Earth prior to Patch 4.2. It could take a while for the prices to rebound. And I doubt if we will see Volatile Fire reach its over 30g price again this expansion. That is unless Blizzard plays around with some of the drop rates. With the drop in prices of both the Volatile Fire and the Volatile Earth, you may consider adding more Dreamcloth options to your Dreamcloth crafting. Both of the Volatile Earth and Volatile Fire prices are comparable, if not cheaper than Volatile Life currently is on my server. This drop in price is also another reason to make sure to have your Living Elements transmuting Alchemist parked in Uldum where the Volatile Air is guaranteed from the transmute.
