    I'm hoping for an explanation of the distinction between repair material and pristine repair material.
    I see that one costs 6g from fuel merchant and the other costs 60g.
    My carp just got high enough last night to make a rosewood patch kit, so I bought 2 of the regular repair materials and made one. There were lots on the broker already, so I had to put mine up at 14g. Since I paid 12 for the 2 repair materials and another 2ish for fuel/mats, I guess I'm not seeing this as the moneymaker I heard that it was. Is there some trick to making money with patch kits that involves using the pristine repair material?

    The pristine is used in making a mender bot-a tinkered item. I've not ever sold the kits (I jsut make them for a raiding guild) so I can't speak to their ability to make money. I'd wodner if the mender bot put a ***** in the repair kit market? (although on some levels, the repair kits are cheaper per use)

    Sounds like the profit margin was just driven down by the amount of competition. You might want to watch the prices for a while and see if they go up. On my server they have gone for around 18 gold when I was shopping for them. I have since made a repair bot, which is actually more expensive to use, but more convenient for the guild.

    Here on Runnyeye, the repair kits seem to go for around 14 - 15 gold. Which means a profit margin of 2 - 3 gp per kit. It's not huge, but not bad either.
