So Mimron's Head shows up on the BMAH.

And.. I had too much invested in DMCs to bid up to win it. Farthest I could go was 415k, but it went up to at least 475k, and might have gone higher with last second bids.

A few notes.. BMAH items are NOT all starting at 48 hours, some seem to be 24, or less. The best strat seems to be watching when the item flips from medium to short, and planning your bids for 27 or 28 min later.

I've never seen a BMAH item last more than 24 hours. They appear one evening, and end the following evening, every time. (The number varies, and the start time, and some days there have been none.)

I've also never seen one on our server go for 150k+. Not even the Al'Akir drake mount.

Well, on my server...

Alysrazor mount 137k (my win, poor choice, I was expected to get outbid)
White polar bear 20k (my win)
Anzu mount 137kish
Mimron's head, 475k+

Unless there's gear under 40k, I'm probably waiting for Mimron's head to show up again. Nothing else really has my interest, too many mounts available now.

Onyxia Mount went for 321k on my realm.

There isn't a way of tracking what is on your realms BMAH right?

Does the BMAH work like the normal AH to where if there is an increase in bidding, it'll actually extend the timer?

Mimiron's Head is neat, but I'm sticking to traveler's Yak / Sandstone Drake. Nothing else tops them in cool factor for me.

I'm sitting on loads and loads of leather and don't see anything to spend them on that will make me a real profit (selling it for 20g per stack is wasteful imo).

Any ideas/tipson what to earn gold on as a LW?

Not that I'm aware of.

Regarding the auction length, it does appear that they are keeping it shorter, on beta it did go to 48 hours.

Apart from Mimron's head, I'm sticking with TLPD on my hunter, and the new Quillen on the spriest. But I might buy a few others if they are cheap.

I do think that Panda is going to devalue mounts. With over 12 from the panderian faction alone, there are going to be SO many available I can't see people focusing on one individual mount much anymore.

Aside from that (the hold up on those are the SoH, unless you mean the lesser patches) - making the leg armor patches as spirits allow (while keeping some in reserve - haven't been able to use my farm for it yet, had to get master of the ways for the feast and now I am getting myself farmed well in advance first)

You'd be surprised at how well the rare leg armor and the rare shoulder inscriptions sell.

Side note: I killed The Yowler and he dropped 20 Great Pandaren Banquets, 20 Pandaren Banquets, and some banana rum. Now, the bag is only a 9-10% drop that contains it but man, that was a nice little treat.

Yeah the rare quality leg enchants sell for 2K right now, all it takes is a pristine and a SoH, if you have some SoH's you can make nice profit.

The i476 craftable prices have dropped a lot, they are at 10K gloves, and 14K chest..

I usually sell them for 2.5k, but apart from that, being bottlenecked by SoH isn't doing me any good in earning gold :)

Tailoring leg enchants require 1 Imperial Silk, which is 8 bolts (once per day) or 3 SoH + 5 bolts (as often as you like.) Last I looked they were ~1k on my server (was over a week ago, so I imagine it hasn't held at that price.)

I'm wondering if I should be more devout about making my daily Sha Crystals or just wait until we start raiding normals and DE the inevitable unusable items.

Saw some people hawking the new weapon enchants. Out of curiousity I checked auctioneer for their list prices... Dancing Steel (the dodge one) is apparently priced at 20k per enchant... the other two were listed at ~10k each. Looks like I won't be changing from Windsong any time soon.

Edit: Also had a leftover +50 int to bracers scroll on my mage... on a whim I posted it for 1k and it sold. Might be a lucrative market until the new ones become more widely available?

So...the SoH has been more than a cock block to me. If I had known how bad the issue was going to be I would have lvled my Paladin first as hes my BS/Engie. I made PHAT Goblin bank the first night/day of MoP selling my ores for a ton each, but by the 2nd day they were at the lvl of Obsidian at the end of Cata. I have all my skills at lvl 600 now, but tat means dick without any SoH.

haha bah! I have been selling all my old Cata stocks like I used to...so damn ODD this dynamic.

I sure dont know JC shit I have to say. That looks like a HUGE market like it ever is. I just not made some diamonds and will sell them raw and see how that goes (400% margins this first go). haha WAY behind the damn curve this time on JC. Anyone doing the JC shuffle anymore with this new shiat?

What methods/logic are yall using to price your Spirits of Harmony for crafting? I've been using Golden Lotus prices as a guide since you can buy those with SoH. I've had moderate success with 750 per SoH. I could go lower, but at that point would be better off selling the Golden Lotus's instead.

It is pretty server dependent from what I have seen. We are still floating around 1k per on my server.

You seem to be on the right track there, however... I've seen people either without the tradeskills or the inclination to use them buying the GL and dumping them on the AH a bit. Enough that it might be worth sucking those up to resell as flasks.

Holyblaze, it's SoH for GL (Alliance vendor is at Shrine of the Seven Stars on the platform near the flight master.) AFAIK there isn't any place to swap the other direction.

I believe you get 3 GL for 1 SoH, so at your server's price, you'd be looking to price your SoH at around 525g.

Looks like there is steady income to be had in the Cata level 79/80 JC crafted rings/necklaces.

1g5s for a setting from the JC vendor.
75silver up to 8g per Alicite or Jasper.

Blue quality rings sell for 250-300g still, greens are still selling in steady amounts for 20-50g.
All those toons leveling up need gear!
