Dabbling in a few sales
I haven’t had a lot of free gaming time lately, and when I’ve had a moment here or there I wasn’t really playing world of warcraft, instead I found myself in Minecraft, ARK, and a few other single player games that I’ve collected on steam (Slay the Spire). I AM still playing WoW, but it’s been pretty reduced. There’s a lot of excitement about the classic servers, and last week I went and made my characters on the PvE RP server. I’ve got another post about that already, so there’s no need for me to state it all over again.
In any case, one of the things I’ve been getting into more lately is pet battle sales (this is also something I’ll miss about Classic, since there are no pet battles). I play on two servers, a high population and a low population. The high population has a different set of pets that are more readily available at a lower price, typically those from dungeons, raids, and island excursions. The lower population realm has a lot of crafted pets for a cheaper price, along with world obtained pets.
I’ve been comparing pets in the two markets and purchasing the lower cost ones on one server to re-sell on another. The thing is, you need volume, and I’m not quite there yet, so I’m only making a little bit of gold a day, but profit is still profit, and I figure if I keep at it for a bit I’ll slowly get there. Plus I still need a way to make coin on the server where I buy all these pets at, it does no good to run out and then to be unable to purchase anything.
Since TSM won’t keep track of my stats across server (ie: I purchase a pet and transfer it, I lose the info on how much I purchased it for when I am on the other server) I’ve been tracking it in a simple google doc instead. I don’t need to know much information, I just want to know what I purchased the pet for, how much I sold it for, and what my profit is. After two days, keeping track is pretty good. It doesn’t take much time, and I’m looking forward to paying attention to any trends I notice. As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
