Profits

I can’t say I’ve been playing very steadily, but I AM enjoying watching the graph go up (it will take a few dips, I need to pay for some accounts coming up). My goal is to hit gold cap on one character before Shadowlands comes out. Why? No real reason, it’s just a goal I set for myself. Will I obtain it? I’m honestly not sure. I’ve been swaying to and from gaming lately, I’ve not been feeling the greatest and I’m pretty tired some days so I end up staring into space not doing much of anything. Hopefully it’s just the heat and summer that has me down.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


Back to Making Gold

As always, I bounce around through the summer and then settle right where I left, which in this case, is World of Warcraft. I’m multiboxing 5 accounts, making gold, and have no clear goal in mind. I’m thinking of boosting a warrior because I’ve always wanted one, and we’ll just see from there!


Wanting Something Different

I’ve been multiboxing 8 accounts for a little while now – on two different servers. The screenshot represents the statistics to one of those servers. I do a really simple farm and the problem is after doing this for some time I realize I’m not actually having fun.

Making gold when you’re not having fun is a bit pointless, it’s a video game, if I’m going to spend money playing it, I WANT to have fun. I decided it was time to take a step back and reevaluate things. What does this mean?

I’ll probably let a bunch of my multibox team lapse, honestly I’m just much happier playing 2-3 characters instead of all 8. I’d also like to look into my old methods of making gold instead of constantly relying on a vendor shuffle. The great thing about vendor shuffles is they’re guaranteed money because you’re not dealing with an auction house. The bad thing about vendor shuffles is they’re BORING. The two most popular vendor shuffles involve pants, pants from legion (requires faction to get rank 3), and pants from BFA (requires nothing except leveling). You can typically buy tidespray linen (or farm it) and buy shal’dorie silk (or farm it), craft pants, and vendor them for a profit. Anything under 2g is typically going to net you a profit under those conditions.

It’s boring. I’ve made hundreds of thousands of pants and sold them to vendor on various accounts and what I’ve come to realize is I actually want to – you know – play the game.

I only have TWO max level crafters. I used to have all of them max but the new method of having to grind faction in order to unlock rank 3 REALLY did me in this expansion. I just absolutely do NOT like this method. In order to make any profit you basically HAVE to grind on anyone who is going to be crafting.

I hate grinding.

Why do I do so much of it then? Because it’s simple and mindless.

What I’d like to do is set up some pre-shadowlands goals for myself. Things I want to get done before the pre-launch stuff happens. That includes getting everyone maxed in their specific craft of choice (it doesn’t mean getting rank 3), and maybe even leveling up a few straggling alts. I once had a dream of having 1 of every class as alliance, and of horde, and I honestly wasn’t too far from accomplishing that. I just need a warrior to finish off the alliance side, and I think I have 4 characters so far of the horde side. There are still some pets I want to get, mounts I want to unlock, and achievements I haven’t gotten yet.

I don’t NEED to farm gold, though I do enjoy it a huge amount. Honestly, with everything going on in the world lately, I’ve just been really depressed and not getting the same amount of joy that I used to from things. I’m hoping changing it up a bit might help. We’ll see.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


Back to Making Gold

It has been a bit of time, but I’m back at it, making gold in WoW. I started out by reactivating my alt accounts so I was multiboxing with a total of 5. It didn’t take long before I decided to throw caution to the wind, and I activated 3 more accounts, so I’m doing a 2×4 team of hunters and druids.

Competition for farm spots has been fierce, with the pandemic going on and far more people at home than normal. Still, I managed to make some gold here and there. I’m not sure how long I’ll keep up with it, but I’ll do my best! Bring on the gold making.


Bracers? I have just a Few..

I crafted 1900 (or so) bracers so that I could flip them for a profit. I sell the greens to vendor, then I DE the blues and either craft enchants with them to sell, or sell the raw materials depending on which are going for more. So far it has worked out very well.


A Daily Mailbox?!

It has been quite some time since I posted a daily mailbox, but I’ve been diving into World of Warcraft again here and there, so, why not! The excess gold was sent from alts who were crafting bracers & pants with it, the rest is some simple transmog sales. Nothing too fancy.


An Update on Gold

I was feeling pretty burnt out the week I made 1.6 million gold, so I decided to step back a bit from Warcraft and my gold making endevours. I’m still enjoying the game, but dedicating a little less time to it with everything else going on in life. Anyway, I’m sitting at almost 4 million gold once again (the number at the top only represents one character, I have 100,000 gold stashed away on an alt, and 1,000 on every character I have). I’ve purchased Shadowlands for everyone, everyone has their tokens, and now I’m just.. collecting.

For what? I’m not sure. I played a bit of Hearthstone and that was fun, but I am really just a WoW gal at heart. A brutosaur for my husband? Perhaps, but honestly when he’s playing we’re usually together, and he could just use mine. Plus he rarely (if ever) uses the AH. He’s just not that sort of gamer.

I was thinking about hosting a giveaway or two, but I want to have my head fully back in the game before doing so. I’m a bit.. let down.. by BFA. I don’t enjoy the crafting being locked by faction rewards that my alts have difficulty obtaining, and with limited time to play I find myself shying away from grind after grind.

We’ll just have to see.


Sales Trickling In

I’ve taken a completely hands off approach to gold making this week because I just haven’t had the time to be in game. Most of the days I didn’t even log in, half of them I didn’t bother putting my stock back up. That means sales have taken a significant slide downwards – but gold is still coming in, even more than my daily goal of roughly 14k.

After playing so hard the previous week (see the 1.6 million gold gain) I decided to step back and just relax. Transmog and pets have been good sellers this week, a few going each day. I didn’t bother restocking any of my supplies, and I haven’t sniped since before 8.3 because it’s just too slow.

While gold is flowing like water for a lot of the bigger goblins, I’m completely happy wading in the kiddie pool. I’ve got over 3.5 million liquid on me, and that’s more than enough for anything I might want to do in the immediate future.

It’s important to take breaks, and I highly encourage it for mental health reasons. Burn out is real, and you shouldn’t feel bad about walking away for a bit. As always, I’ll wander back, it might just take a little bit of time this round. I’ve been playing WoW as my main game of choice for quite a few years now and while I don’t see that changing any time soon, it might have to share my game time with a few other things (like FFXIV, and LotRO).

As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


So You Don’t Know where to Farm?

Here are some links I end up giving out to people – a lot. If you want to farm, but have no idea where, check out these posts. Yes, they’re a bit out dated, but the farms are still good (most of them). Are they the best gph out there (gold per hour) no, they are certainly not. BUT they are something new for you, and a good way to practice.

The best farms are going to be farms you find yourself. SOMEONE has to find a farm in order for it to turn into a-big-deal – YOU could be that someone. Get out there. Kill stuff.

Why Track Sales/Gold?

A frequent question I get is – why bother tracking my earnings. Especially now that I have my Brutosaur. There are a few answers I have, but honestly the main reason is just because I find it fascinating. Making gold in world of warcraft is just plain fun. I like knowing what I’m spending, where gold is going, and where it’s coming from. It’s a great sense of accomplishment for me to see the graphs and charts and earnings.
