I posted this on the forums at JMTC and The Consortium, but figured I should add it here as well.
Enchanting has been changed, you no longer need a golden pearl to make a runed arcanite rod. This means that golden pearls, which before were a major roadblock for leveling enchanters and commanded a premium price because of this, are now basically worthless. They're used in a handful of mediocre crafting recipes, as well as enchant weapon - spellpower. However, mighty intellect is now as good as if not better than spellpower.
Sell your golden pearls now while they still have value.
