Picked one of these up by luck, there's only one other on the AH for 220g. Should I try to sell it now or wait in case it goes up?

How about ask people on your server? Noone knows where you play or what the economy is like there.

I think I'd wait a couple of weeks at least. With DM around the corner we're expecting inflation to ramp up pretty soon across all servers, causing the value of any gold you get today to decrease pretty substantially. You'll probably get more value from selling it later. Especially if you're not looking to make a major purchase right now.

I think you would be better off waiting for after DM is out for 3-4 weeks. More 60's to buy the item and more gold in the economy.

They can drop off the lashers inside DM too which every mage, priest and Paladin will be farming for gold. Also MC isnt exactly getting harder, so more and more Might shoulders will be available.

They are already down to 80g on my server.

sell it and buy something else with the money before dm comes out.
stockade pauldrons are becoming less desirable over time.

holding is still better than having gold which is about to get inflated though

They are high value phase 1, but will likely become less valuable as everyone progresses and more content with better gear becomes available.

The thing with inflation is that it does two things:
1) You will receive more gold for the same sale.
2) Things you wish to buy from other players will get more expensive.

So you should ask yourself; What do you want to do with the money? If it is an epic mount, wait a bit with selling, since that price won't increase with inflation. If you already got your epic mount you should sell immediately, because:

It looks like a lot of the DM gold farming methods from private servers don't work in 1.13. I haven't tried them on private servers, and haven't tried them in 1.13 yet, but according to threads on Reddit, it sounds like DM might not be the harbinger of inflation that it was made out to be.

I think your best bet it to wait, but if you start seeing prices fall dramatically sell that bad boy.
