I can't imagine great nordics consistently being available for gold, given that that would significantly increase their profitability for those who buy precrafts (22M gold more profit/craft due to reduced cost of craft). Worst case IMO, they sell for 2 gems (so 1 post-tax) with a several-hour queue.
Maybe I didn't formulate that too clear, but I was trying to dispute Bloop's claim that the Nordic Lutes market will crash.
As far as I've understood, end game players have mostly already moved away from Wisdom Ocarina to things like the chest blueprint Draconic Tea, the package blueprint Eggsplosives etc. so they'll stay at no impact on the Nordic Lute market.
Dragonfire Potion: 11.65M base, 1 Primal Horn after milestone
Wisdom Ocarina: 13.05M base, 2 great Nordic Lutes
So if horns cost 2 great Nordic Lutes on the tradehouse, it might already not be attractive to switch for people who can't quest their own horns.
Since every lvl 35+ in a city that raids milestone 25 next weekend also has Primal Horns unlocked on the tradehouse because of milestone 24, it's quite probable that those with Dragonfire Potion unlocked, but no Wisdom Ocarina will drive up horns to that point where it makes more sense for those with Ocarina to keep crafting Ocarinas instead of Dragonfire Potion if they'd need to buy either the horns or the lutes...
I guess in the long term the Nordic Lutes market would be affected by fewer newer players feeling the need to buy Wizard pack to boost their gold production.
