How likely is it, that they become more useful and expensive? Afaik it's the only 400 Crafting Material without a (real) use.

Um, they make 4 runes already?  What's the point of your topic?  You want them to make 8 runes?

They're cheap because you get 1000s in Orr.  Rune of the Undead is an amazing rune?  How is that not useful.

They make 4 runes only. I would love to see some MF recipes or something. All of the other 400 Crafting stuff is useable in the MF.

More MF? i think there are lots of mats to get some MF buff!
Make it rather gold drop or karma buff or stats buff

I have about 40g worth of piles invested (roughly 20,000). It's a relatively safe investment since most of the supply on the outpost is at vendor price.

There is little to no risk to invest in it, and the rewards are huge.

Remember how Anet early on released temporary recipes to adjust supply? They will do the same for this recipe, and I'm sure they will make it so you need 250 piles to put in the forge since there are just so many on the market.

If I was you and would sit on 20.000 items, I would say exactly the same  on such a big forum to make the prices rise..

It might take a year, or maybe even three, but its safe to assume that the price has to rise eventually.

I think he was being genuinely honest and not trying to pump and dump he didn't create the thread.

I'm sorry but holding 20,000 items and dumping them isn't exactly going to make an effect on a huge market due to huge amounts of supply and little to no demand. I'd have to get everyone to buy into the scheme and that's just not gonna happen..

However, I did check yesterday and the lowest selling price was about 70c (probably due to the bot bans). So I already made a profit if I decided to sell now, but I'm still holding on to it until we get definitive recipes.

He;s really just saying the truth.  There is literally 0 risk to vendor price materials.  I can't see how anyone can't see it as a good investment.  You can just vendor them if you give up on the investment for almost no loss, yet is has the potentia double or triple in price.  So.. 5% risk for 200-300% possible profit?  Very very very safe,
Fun while it lasted.  I guess.

I thought that this might be a fun way to get into this whole trading thing. I bought up a couple of stacks and will hang on to them for a while, to see if anything happens, perhaps with this lost coast patch. As was said above, if nothing does, i can vendor them at a minimal loss and the experience has been fun, so pays for itself even if it doesnt work out.
