Prominence

I keep hearing that Prominence is no longer BiS for DPS. Why?

    I hate paying taxes! Why must I pay thousands of dollars in taxes when everything I buy is taxed anyways!

    If you have a prom enchant I'd advise against dumping it. Use another enchant for now and hold onto it.

    Look at vorpal. It was BIS back in the early mods, then got super nerfed and was a bargain basement enchant for a long time - I bought what is now a level 12 back when it was called Transcendant for just over 1 million AD. Now it's considered BIS again, and the cheapest level 12 vorpal on the AH is going for over 4.5 million.

    Call it the circle of nerf. Prom is nerfed for now - but in a year or two? Could be BIS again.

    Hmm. Good point. I will hang on to it!

    Ran ACT with no comp and slotted prominence 13, total damage was 38k out of 5mil total. Ran frost 12, was around 300k of 8 mil. Taking vorpal out of equation, prominence is on the really low end right now. Im holding onto it for now.

    wating 2 years for a enchant to come back is pointless, you are better of selling it and investing the money on something that works.

    True. Very true.

    Unless I have no option and have to sell in order to get something that works, I would not sell it. I prefer to sell when the price is high and not when the price is low. For me, this is the time to buy and stock up. However, if you don't have a choice, you don't have a choice. Or, you think the price will go even further down.
    The game can read your mind. If you want it, you won't get it. If you don't expect to get it, you will.

    What is worth more....an enchant that MIGHT become useful/more valuable years in the future, or the storage slot it consumes for those years?

    If these are the only factors (it is not), then, former. Storage is cheap. I have a lot more worth less stuff than that.

    There is nothing more fun than finding out that the item you've had sitting gathering dust for some reason is now worth scads of AD....
