As I was telling Tome yesterday, I woke with a bit of a bug in my bonnet. I had the urge to start making some gold. I used to basically play the Auction House religiously but as of late haven’t bothered all that much. I more or less do it when I need to now. Until yesterday and today, that is. I focused on two realms, one holds a level 10 Gnome Warrior who does nothing but the Auction House 5-15 minutes a week. The other is my home server.
The Gnome generated somewhere between 50 and 100g and is up over 700 now with a few items on hand. I was fortunate to snag a couple of Darkcrest pieces and flipped those for solid profit. I imagine it could have been much more if I was familiar with the economy of the server. I also did the same with an Elementium Geode…and never underestimate the profit in buying Copper Ore and smelting it into bars.
On my home server, things were a little different. I put every profession I had to work on just crafting items they had the mats to make. Then I grabbed a couple things here and there from my banker to craft more lucrative items such as Barbaric Bracers and some of the Enchanting Rods. I also sold a stack of Cobalt Ore for 140g, which is just absurd. Since yesterday morning I’ve had no less than 150 auctions going. Here’s a screenshot of my latest venture to the mailbox:
Now understand that I really never dabble in what I consider “high end” items. So while I could luck out and make 8k off one item alone, I tend not to. I believe the most expensive thing I sold was a Lifelike Mechanical Toad for about 250g. My motto is more “sell a lot and let it add up,” rather than “please let this one item sell.”
I also managed to boost my Tailoring to 400 and Blacksmithing to 471. As you might guess, I don’t have all the mats to get the points, so that’s coming out of all the profits as well. But, the more I can make with my professions, the more I can make in my pocket. Now if only I would make an Alchemist…
