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.

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.

A Few Flips

These sales are from a high population horde server I play on – I wish my low population RP realm did as well with consumables!

WoW Classic MailBox Update

WoW Classic has become a bit of a sour point for me. My guild completely fell apart once the whole Blizzard & China thing happened, and I lost all motivation to log in. The whole point of playing was to be there with friends. I felt bad that I gave away gold and items to people who left – and I get it, it had nothing to do with me and was completely their own decision and choices, but it left me feeling sorry for myself. I use gaming as a means to be social when I spend the majority of my days watching out for my two littles, and I was sad that it was taken away from me. I know why lines in the sand are drawn, but my mental health plummeted.

So I avoided playing until today. I decided to return to making a little gold and seeing what I could acomplish with limited play time. I’m sitting on around 211 gold at the moment, with about 150g worth of items in the auction house. Here’s hoping some items actually sell. I’m a small time goblin compared to most, but every little gold helps.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

WoW Retail – Gold Making

We’re part way through week 5 and have 1.7 million gold out of our goal of 5 million. I can practically taste that auction house mount.

Nice Snipe

I purchased these for 2 gold, and sold them the next day for 100,000 gold – which is well below what they usually sell for if you’re patient, but I just wanted a quick turn around because I’m already sitting on a lot of transmog gear.

Still, 100,000 gold for spending 2g is nothing to sneeze at (IMO).

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

A few Expeditions

I’ve started running a handful of expeditions with my husband while boxing my mage – she gets a fair amount of experience, and we get our necklaces’ leveled up a bit and a chance at some gear and pets. It’s not much, but it’s something fun and a good change of pace.

Bracer Shuffle

By now you’ve probably heard about the infamous bracer shuffle in BFA – and if you haven’t, well, you will. It’s pretty simple. There’s a google document that you fill out with information about your server prices, and you figure out which bracers are worthwhile for you to craft – then you craft them. You craft a lot of them. Once crafted, you scrap the greens, and pray for expulsom (or whatever those no trade blue bits are called that are also used in crafting). Then you DE the blues.

From there you can do a few things. Take the items you get from DE and craft enchants to sell (especially with 8.3 coming up, people will be getting new gear and want it enchanted) and then you take the items you make that will be purple, and you DE those. Then you sell the raw enchanting materials – OR you craft that into valuable enchants that sell for well above what the cost of the original bracer was.

That’s why in the screenshot above, my guild bank is full of cloth.

Bring on the bracer shuffle.
