Goals: Week Two

I spent a lot of gold this week and haven’t seen a whole lot of return yet, but I’m hoping it pans out. My gold making pictured above is one of my servers, and represents horde & alliance (I play both on the same server). I am on other servers too, but I figured for this purpose I’d just track one.

Anyway, horde pulled ahead since I’m playing them more these days, earning 180,870g profit. I did a few emissary and paragon quests so that helped a ton, and I restocked some cloth transmog which has been selling pretty well.

Alliance would have pulled ahead by a small margin but I bought a bunch of bloodfeaster mounts once I heard that the farm had been nerfed earlier this week. They were going for 10-15k on my server and I’m hoping I can get the price to inch up as we get closer to Shadowlands. I also made a silly purchase worth 36k of Tidespray linen. Why? It was 1g09s which is still actually low enough to profit on (plus I could use a bit more expulsom for my jewelcrafter).

One of the strangest sales I made was someone who paid almost 6k for some green winter clothes – with the event coming up in the not too far future I figured they would have held off on that but who am I to complain! I spent maybe an hour total all week working on the sales aspect of things this week so it was fairly hands off. Instead I’m focusing on cleaning up banks & inventory, and leveling up alts in preparation for Shadowlands. I’m trying to organize logical teams of characters since I want to switch from 5 boxing to 2 boxing (although now I’m wondering if I just want to go back to 5 boxing or at least 4 boxing).

All in all I’m happy with the goldmaking progress for the amount of time I’m dedicating to it (which is almost none). Room for improvement? Always. Earning at least a token a week on each horde & alliance is pretty good for me, personally.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


What’s Selling (ymmv)

Everyone is going to have their own particulars for their own server, so you have to take this with a little bit of ‘your mileage may vary’ – just because these things sell on my server does NOT mean they will sell on yours. That being said, there are trends that carry over from server to server. This graph and these sales are the past 7 days.

My number one seller was elementium bars. I sold 1001 of these for a total of 74,565 gold alone. This is most likely because of people leveling up their cataclysm engineering, the loot a rang that is so popular with multiboxers requires 70 cataclysm engineering, and it’s not cheap to get done. Past me is very happy to have picked up those bars for 3g each. I also sold 1093 ghost iron bars for a total of 54,579 gold, and elementium ore, 451 of those for 32,163 gold.

Next seller, is the Highborne compendiums – in specific, storm. There was a Wowhead article about how this trinket is BiS and things just took off from there. I sold 7 of these, for a total profit of 42,751 gold.

In that same line, inscription received three new glyphs when the pre-patch landed, and not everyone has picked them up yet. They don’t cost any more than regular BFA glyphs, but you can charge a premium for them because they’re new. These glyphs are ‘of the aquatic chameleon’ (41,326 gold, I sold 17), ‘of the aerial chameleon’ (33,254 gold, I sold 16 of them), ‘of the swift chameleon’ (31,826 gold, I sold 15 of them).

A handful of transmog (29k worth), a few mounts (only one jeweled onyx panther this week), and a lot of rings – BFA rings really took off, and I just restocked yesterday. I also sold 13k worth of recipes, which is always nice – it all adds up!

Those fish cakes I started selling? I sold 15 of them this week, and made 2,806 gold from that. It’s a really simple craft that just adds to the pool.

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


What Am I Doing With All That Gold?

I bought my auction house mount back in January (or so records show) and since then I’ve purchased a second one for my husband and I’m back up to 9 million gold after purchasing some TCG pets for my personal collection – so what do I DO with all that gold?

These days I’ve been using it to shuffle characters around through the battlenet store. Anything digital that you can purchase there can use bnet balance (I wish the physical store also employed this, but that is not the case) so I’ve been moving my horde characters that were on Hyjal (some, not all) over to my main server of Argent Dawn. Over on AD I have my collection of alliance character, and I’m trying to build up my stable of horde characters. Ideally, I want 1 of every class as each faction.

Honestly, I wish Blizzard would just do away with these factions all together and let us mingle, but since I doubt that will be happening any time soon, this is my method to make sure I don’t miss out. I bought over a million gold worth of tokens this week and moved 5 of my characters. I like to have everyone together for crafting / harvesting purposes, so it feels good to have them all gathered again.

What about you, if you’re making gold what are you spending it on these days?


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!


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.


Making Gold For…

Now that I have my auction house mount (also known as Brutosaurus AKA LongBoi) I had to decide if I wanted to continue working on making gold (of course I do) whether or not I would track it (I decided to) and what I would end up doing with that gold if I decided to continue.


An Update for 2020

We’re nearing the end of January, and I know I’ve been mostly silent for the past few months – and I’m hoping that changes. I said that in 2019 too, and I managed it for months until it all fell apart, so we’ll just see how it goes.


November(?) Sales in Review

I did graphs of my sales back in November, but I didn’t blog about it (whewps) so I decided why not post it now. November was a GREAT month for glyph sales – which have slowed down a bit since then due to competition, but is still one of my main crafts. My greatest sales came from my ‘misc’ category, which is all transmog, pets, mounts, and supplies for crafts that I don’t actively participate in (such as ore, from blacksmithing). How did I do? Lets go over the results…


5 Million Gold? Goal Obtained!

It has been FAR too long since I posted last, and I honestly don’t have much of an excuse except to say that things got busy. Really busy. On top of that, I got sad. Really sad. I’m hoping to change all of that, to try to pull myself out of the rut I have been in, and get back to things I love to do which includes posting on my site. I’m hoping to have a remodel done in the future and I’m hoping that it inspires me to write more often. A shame, because I had ALMOST posted every single day for all of 2019 until November. I was quite proud of that, too.
