not sure if you mean 525 or not, but the total ghost iron ore needed according to wow-professions is ~276 bars (552 ore).

5.2 should make this a bit easier. There is a series of new Training Projects requiring Ghost Iron Bar that should get you from 1 to 500
nice. I thought the Glove and Bracer socket was 550 though?

If you're talking about the blacksmithing catchup being implemented in 5.2, here's a list of the ore it'll take to reach 500 from 1. You can math it out from there. :P

9,942 ore to go from 1-500. You need 550 Blacksmithing to be able to socket bracers/gloves. It'd be cheaper if you just level Blacksmithing normally come 5.2 rather than use the new streamlined Ghost Iron method.

Find the spots where mats are hard to come by in Azeroth/Northrend/Outlands (e.g., I hear Fel Iron is hard to come by).

Check the quick-leveling using Ghost Iron.

Decide if it's quicker to get Ghost Iron, or buy mats off the AH.
fel iron wasn't TOO bad, but cobalt is a black hole in this game. 2 hours for 13 nodes, yesterday. ...

this profession nerf can't come fast enough

I get the feeling it'll be harder to farm almost 10k ghost iron.
wow-professions.com (I just checked) sadly doesn't have a 5.2 alternative leveling guide for blacksmithing yet. :-(
