More 4.3 News - Maelstrom Shatter

There's a new enchanting ability Maelstrom Shatter on the PTR servers that splits 1 Maelstrom Crystal into 2 Heavenly Shards.

Some players are already trying to corner the market on Maelstrom Crystals causing the price to go up a little. This probably won't have much effect on Heavenly Shard prices now though speculators will probably cause Maelstrom Crystals to go up a little more yet.

When 4.3 drops the demand for chants will go up causing chant prices to rise and chant mats prices will follow. Heavenly Shard prices might drop a little initially if a lot of people start shattering big stockpiles of Crystals but things will quickly balance out. Maelstrom Crystal prices will wind up pegged at around double Heavenly Shard prices and Heavenly Shard prices at about half the price of Maelstrom Crystals. The prices of both Shards and Crystals should become more stable and shattering will function as a safety net preventing an oversupply of Crystals or an undersupply of Shards.
