Special thanks to Matthew McCurley for the subject of today’s post. On Friday he was nice enough to share some beta footage from Ragefire Chasm as it’s undergone some inhabitant changes. Let’s watch the video again, shall we?
Did you catch that? Watch it again. Still didn’t catch it? Go straight to 3:44. That’s right, Oggleflint’s Chasm paste now. This is a big deal. From a storyline purpose, it’s relatively meaningless. From a gold making standpoint, it’s an opportunity.
Oggleflint currently drops Oggleflint’s Inspirer, a +3 Strength Mace for level 13. Mmmm…twinkalicious. It doesn’t sell for a whole lot Horde side, I usually see it for 12-20g because you can farm the tar out of it. Alliance side it’s more like 50g.
Imagine that value when the mob that drops it no longer exists.
Heading to Ragefire Chasm yet? Even keep an eye on your Auction House for listings of the Inspirer and toss them in your bank until Mists of Pandaria is live and the item can’t be sought out anymore. Then profit.
This is one of the important things to remember at this time of an expansion: change. Sometimes it’s major and sometimes it’s minor, but for the goldmaker you need to be aware of it just the same and determine which ones will boost your profit margin. Had folks realized the Deadmines was going to offer far less Defias gear when Cataclysm launched, you can bet they would’ve stocked up on it even more.
