Congratulations, you have just discovered almost every crafted item's price secret on the trading post. :b
It's like that with almost every crafting item. Making it yourself is often way cheaper than simply buying it.
That's one way to make some money ^_^

keep in mind tp deposit, and the value of your skillpoints, and time invested, the cost of the vial of flame recipe (10g) further 2.5g for inscription/components, and the likely situation where u get undercut and relist / loose deposit.

The skill point thing is secondary. I've unlocked all skills with my main and still have over 200 skill points I have no idea what to do with, and that's with only 50% of the open world explored (more or less). This is just from regular play, and seeing as I have many characters and tons of studies, there often goes many days between me even logging on to that character.

Generally speaking I'd say that getting the gold takes longer than getting the skill points, maybe unless you're actively going for gold alone, in which case you'd probably get at least halfway up to 50 skillpoints before you got enough gold just to fill the gap.

I don`t stop to be amazed how much no skill is needed (just gold) for this kind of weapons and Legendary`s !

p.s. poor man`s Volcanus (create Elementalist character), skid row Volcanus (befriend Elementalist) :P !!!

Pretty nice, but did you also count in the fact that the TP takes 15%?

575g*0.85 = 489g return = 89g profit

I guess it's still a nice profit, but worth the risk? You might get undercut and listing fee is ~30g.
