Yesterday we had a cat carrier. That was it.

Today it's a another cat carrier, and some 483 cloth bracers. What happened to the 4 items at a time that they had up a few weeks ago?

And 10k for pets? Most are going for under 1k on our AH, with the top ones maybe at 6k or so (doubt those are actually selling).

BAH! This little of the "Random" is bullshit when there are hundereds wanting to use the BMAH. When will we see dozens of items up on that damn thing. So boring and lack luster.

I use to farm Embersilk with a Potion of Treasure Finding in Deepholm just north of Stonehearth - would get about 130 Bolts of cloth during the potion's hour (plus the Volatiles and ore and greens to DE and everything else from the chests).

Is there a similar spot(s) for Windwool farming with a Potion of Luck?

So...not much going on with my Goblin family this Xpac huh? Well I have some great news friends! I just saved a bunch of money with GEICO! haha BAM!

I kid I kid...

Well I have made 200k off of the Goblin Rocket. Super slow gowing about it though as I only farm MoH from my farm, but I net 30k on each one. Takes me less than a week to sell it. I am so happy to make gold off dat shiat now!

Not making much gold from BS as there is a huge supply side market for all crafted items this Xpac and not much demand side. LOTS of LFRs make that kind of a bust as only the hardcore buy great crafted epics to jump into normal modes.

With that said, however, JC prices are still at nigh on vendor prices (after the AH tax) so not making gold off of raw or cut gems. I am still selling the rings and necks (ilvl 450) but that is only at 50-100% margins and no valume to speak of. So its a meager living off my JC. I could make nice gold off the mounts (so not enough time to do the damn dailies on yet another toon AND run LFR's on all of them...not to mention work the AH) so not to amped that I am choosing to NOT make gold with that. DOH!

Frankly...LW 415ilvl blues are going great! Well...better than I would have though that is to say. I am selling 12k worth a week and 1230g an item. haha even a wrist slot! I have had 3 peeps jump into the void that I filled, but that is the game we all play...yes?

Times are tough for AH goblins in MoP. At least for me anyway.

I've made just south of 300k since the expansion launched but a lot of that had to do with grabbing two battered hilts, one for 200 gold! and the other for 1500 gold and reselling for 25k each. Also bought a pair of Cloudkeeper Legplates for 1k that resold for around 15k. So around 20% of my profit this expansion has come from those 3 transactions...

I have been making high profits on BS 450 pvp gear for people trying to get the ilvl for heroics/LFR as well as the 415 jewelry for those fresh 85s to get into TJS and SB. Although both have been relatively low volume.

Metas have been extremely high profit for me as well, probably my biggest money maker this expansion as I predicted early. Also a relatively low volume, but the profit margin has been so high it doesn't really matter.

Enchants have done pretty well, lower profit margin but much higher volume than my other markets.

Bags have been excellent for me, buying up cheap Chaos orbs and volatiles whenever I see them for Illusionary bags and also shattering cheap abyssal crystal into dust for frostweave bags. All those Pandas/Monks need storage too.

I'm moving from a relatively low volume high profit economy on Azgalor to what looks like a higher volume lower profit economy on Bleeding Hollow. So all of this is probably going to change. It sure was a lot easier in Cata imo, especially for JCs.

Edit: Oh yeah I've also been making an absolute killing on 18 second Invis Pots for people running CMs. The mats are dirt cheap but usually don't show up in large quantities and the pattern is pretty rare from what I understand so I have been marking these up sky high.

So, it looks like I will be transferring servers again, and after checking the AHs, it doesn't look good. Seems my best chance to move gold will be to craft engineering mounts. I may also wind up trying more cross server pet selling and see how that goes.

Also not happy at all with legendary meta gems, as this likely means that JCers won't be able to sell nearly as many in 5.2. Only solace is that increased gear drop rates in 5.0 LFRs should mean more gem sales, but those prices are crap now anyway.

It *seems* that it would be an extra slot on an existing helm.

Hrmmm.. We'll see.

Did some more digging on TUJ and my server move is gonna be tough, mounts appear to be the best chance, but actuallly crafting them on the new server, but buying the vendor item on the old server.

While the BMAH has been, and frankly will continue to be, a big letdown for me. With that said, however, I started doing and old tried and true Goblin move and that is snipeing low listed items and relisting them for nice margins.

I have been hitting the rings and necks and trinkets kinda hard. Dumping 100K on a lot of stuff then just selling as demand allows. Been good I have to say! 10k margins on rings is damn good for me!

Next Wrathion quest segment requires 40 trillium bars. Sounds like a good chance to make money if you have transmute masters.

SWEET! Though the Till bars are down to 40g each now. Even at that price its a 300% margin for me. hehe I just dont like to foster the downgrade of prices. I upsell my Trill bars into Living and craft my rockets and armor and get even more margin out of it! Slow selling this week though.

So I have a few question.

I know that Pets are now able to be sold on the Ah as part of the whole Pokewow battle thing. Do you have to do something specific to be able to sell your pets?(as in, would you have to go to some pet battle thing to train them first?) Are all the pets capable of being sold?

And if one were to do this, How much gold are the pets selling for? I'd imagine that a lot of the "neat" pets I have aren't worth much, but I know that I have some TOC Pets, and a few others.

I had thought about making a return to wow, on a small scale (and by small I mean, I wouldn't be raiding for a while if ever again, but at this point I'm BuhROKE! and thought maybe the pets could jump start my economy.

Not much of a jump-start, really. My understanding is that nothing that you "wild-catch" is able to be sold, only drops. (So no Minfernals or Onyxian Whelplings, unfortunately.) Anything that you learn from a "drop" is fine, so the Archaeology ones, or DMF pets, TCG cards, etc can all be sold.

To sell something, you have to "learn" the pet, then go to the pet-tab, right-click on it, and select "put in cage".

I've sold a few of the raid drop ones, between 1000 and 1500 gold each. I still run most of them even though I got the [Raiding with Leashes] a while back. (MC for rep, BWL for mog, Naxx for frostweave for bags. Was doing AQ for rep too but hit exalted Brood and Cenarius last week.)


Edit: The AH is getting really frustrating - all the stuff I used to sell has completely crashed in price since Cata - a stack of Tol'vir potions sold for 200G, while Virmen's Bite's sell for about 60G a stack now. Bleh. Tailoring leg patches, all enchanter enchants, glyphs, and Netherweave bags have all cratered too. Only thing I'm having luck with right now are the LW leg patches, and I can only get 1.6 Spirits a day from the farm.

Anything else that people are having decent luck with? I have access to 600 everything except Blacksmith (coming shortly) and engineering (may be a while). Not sure what to do with the scribe - shoulder enchants are about 250-300G, and I'm afraid to start making DMF cards as those trinkets look like they're getting outclassed pretty quickly (due to the Dominance ones being awesome, mainly). 476 fans are about 2500. (Actually, the Inscribed Fans sell at 1k and are cheap to make - not great volume though.)

Sorry about the rambling *laugh* - just tired of failing at the AH!

Well that kills me then. I ended up with a pair of Spirit's of Competition back in the day. I was hoping that it would be sellable now, but it doesn't sound like they can be.

Yeah, I was talking to a friend of mine, and he said the economy on terenas has taken a complete and utter crap. Which sucks, since if I came back, I've got ~10k gold, and nothing to sell. It was a fleeting thought really. I had the opportunity to come back on a 30 day free thing, and see what I thought, but really it sounds like I wouldn't stick with it the more digging I've done. Oh well.

Maybe I will try Path of Exile and see what everyone is clamoring about there.

The farm makes a lot of the stuff you had to go out into the world for less expensive. I've been depositing my weeds from my farm into the guild bank, a guild elixir master has been using it to make flasks and my potion master has been using leftover weeds to make stat potions, the other night I ended up making around 200 Virmen's Bite potions with just the stuff I've been depositing. I also saw that they're buffing the gathering seeds in 5.2 to be more competitive with the other seeds.

I've just been mining while questing and selling the ore.

Yeah Jabari...just got back like 3 or 4 pages and see what we have been talking about of late.

To be frank...with this Spirit of Harmony shit, Blizz found a way to fuk all of us Goblins real good. Can make some small change here and there though. Last week sucked for moving all but bars for me.

haha although...I just had my FIRST epic BoE droped and sold it for 4K! hehe it was funny as the crafted 476 cloth robes were selling for 2k. WoOt!

Yeah, MoP has really messed over goblins, with the exception of well-established glyph traders with the time and schedule for that daily market. The cockblock for crafting alts, combined with the glut of JCers, has really brought a downfall for many of the goblin ways.

The best thing this expac sofar really has been cooking mats. You can still make a decent amount from them, and fish are holding up ok, allthough sales are slowing, supply is slowing as well.

But really, Blizz has also limited uses for gold. Unless it's the rare item in the BMAH, there's not much to really spend goblin riches on anymore really. There are so many damn mounts now that who really cares about the TCG ones? Same with pets, there are like 500 of them now?

Regarding my upcoming server move.. Think most of my gold move will be by selling battle pets cross server.. easiest and safest way to do so, allthough it's a bit slow..

Shit son. The other night someone placed 5 or 6 Imperial Moths on the AH for 500 gold each. Within a minute of me buying one all the rest were sold and re-listed at 4 times that price.

As a bit of an aside (again, I'm not a Goblin), this is what I use gold for nowadays:
- Making fun stuff for myself (JC mounts, Vial of the Sands, etc)
- Getting the "main alt" geared up through GDKP (though that hasn't run in a while)
- Buying high-level BoEs to get guildies up to ilvl 470. My guild is still just 1/16 (yes, normal :lol: ) and we need all the help we can get. Those 496 chest/gloves etc aren't cheap when you don't have access to either the recipes or Blood Spirits.

Actually, maybe I should give the Vials a go on the AH - I always eat up any cheap Volatiles already (to make Dreamcloths) and the Truegold transmute isn't on cooldown anymore...
