    The price of the fiery brimstones have been increasing like crazyyy..

    Last week each fiery brimstone was selling for 50.. This past weekend hit 100k for the first time, today morning 150k.. and right now its going for 200k..

    This came to a point that people are actually buying helm of commands, sage seekers' and grasp, and many other good legendary items to salvage them!

    i remember i had to save for many days to buy my first helm of command... and now they are being salvage like if was trash!

    stock up people! its only a matter of time for the FB to reach a 1m! (okay.. maybe thats too much..)

    Edit: prices fluctuating a lot.. came down to 180k

    Really? When I started looking at Brimstone it was 90k, that was some time late last week. Yesterday when I checked it was 70k. This is on Americas softcore.

    yea.. america softcore.. maybe all those people crafting legendary items for free or small fee are driving the price of the FB up? the weekend was packed with people crafting helm of commands, and others..

    or gold just devaluing..

    Unless you have tons of these I would hold them for the 1.10(future patch for changes to legendaries).

    Hmm yeah They are skyrocketing in value... I should have bought them long ago. Maybe I will start investing in them now. They can only get more valuable when they buff the legendaries. Not only because they will be better to make, but also harder to salvage (as they will be worth more.

    On the other hand, since they're only buffing new legendaries, we may have a flood of now-useless pre-patch legendaries being salvaged.

    Which I think is a similar thing behind the recent price increase. Prior to 1.0.3, you could salvage blue items and get brimstone. After the patch, this is either impossible or a very very low chance. So there was an initial glut in the market from blue items which has worked itself out.

    Also of course demand for this stuff increases over time, as more people find plans for legendary items (which are very rare) and decide to take a punt on them because they really want to get the base affix in that slot, but want to re-roll lots of them to get the other additional random affixes that they wanted.

    So, do you think Fiery Brimstone could become a currency in the future?

    Once they buff the legendaries fiery stones could definitely become profitable there's no doubt about it. That's assuming them "buffing" the legendaries actually makes them useful of course.

    The price definitely went up a lot since patch (which nerfed the salvage rates for legendary materials), but I'm not sure whether it will actually continue to go up or whether it had already stabilized.

    i dont think its gonna be a currency where people use it to trade, ie. items for fiery brimstones.. the currency will be gold and dollars

    its a commodity.. the item itself is rare (basically salvaged only from lvl 60 legendaries).. for example i dont know about u guys, but i have over 200 hours of diablo 3 (and over 100 hrs in infenro; act 1-4), and not even once i got a drop of a lvl 60 legendary.. all the ones i have i bought them in the ah

    the same way that gold is a rare commodity in the real world, and fluctuates.. basically this also applies for FB.. assuming that everything stays the same (meaning that blizzard will not make anything crazy), price will fluctuate a lot in the short term, but in the long term this will slowly increase in price

    and its a good way to fight against the gold inflation.. also mediocre items are decreasing in price really fast i think, taht why items such as helm of commands are being salvaged

    I started to buy Fiery Brimstones back when those barely did cost 20000 gold or something. :)
    However as you can't now get anything good with a few millions of gold that much unless someone underprices their top stuff, I have kept them mostly.

    On one hand there will be a huge pool of pre-1.1 legendaries that will be salvaged, on the other, legendaries are getting buffed so Fiery's will be wanted.

    Hmm. I'd probably buy them @100k.

    They have been slowly going down from a high of 161k down to 140k last I checked. Of course this happens after I purchased 6@160 >_<

    Bold move...almost 60m on brimstones? Good luck with it, if they really get in the 150+k range it would be some easy made additional millions but if the prices plummet back to 15k, well that's probably a couple hundred euros down the drain.

    unless blizzard mix things up with a patch(up the chance to get brimstone when you salvage rares again) the price will not drop before 1.1 because brimstones are really hard to get now. i salvaged lots of rares since 103 and i got 0 brimstones.

    i think it's really safe to buy them at 85k because even if the price drops it will go back to 100k+ when the patch comes out

    i mean you can craft like 3 useful legendaries now and it's 85K?:)

    but it's all about the chance to get brimstones on rare salvages. if the chance stays this low im good
    if they up the chance i need to sell them before people read the patch notes or i'm screwed:)
