Well, thought I'd ask this because of a situation I had a bit ago. People who are on the beastmaster forums prolly know I've been leveling beastmaster lately. Well, I wanted a Sipahi Turban, which is a 10k item..WHEN it's on AH. Guess what?
..None on AH. So I groan, gather the mats and shout in Jueno. No answer. I was offering a 5k tip, considering the worth of the item that's quite generous. (30k if they hqed; the hq is 300k). I finally found someone in one of my shells to do the synth. Someone seemed to hint that they wanted like a 200k tip to do it..which is pretty stupid considering it's a stinking 10k item on AH.
So thought I'd ask my fellow crafters here since I'm a cook, too: What do you think is a permissible tip to offer for that kind of thing?
