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...

Enchants have still been selling rather well. I've pretty much just been selling enchants on Theck, and I've been making 10-20k a week from that easily with minimal effort. Tichondrius has a bigger market than Blackrock did though. Was entertaining when over 25% of my enchant sales on the AH were to my own guild on Blackrock, because we were the last Alliance raiding guild to jump ship.

I know some of my guildmates are still making good money with Inscription and Jewelcrafting, but I don't know the details. I tend to stick to my markets and let them have theirs.

I feel sorry for the "We run the auction house" guild, they probably never knew what hit them when we transferred here. At least I take it easy on the enchanting market (I only list one of anything at a time, for the most part). The JC/Inscription guy is lethal.

Sold my "Mojo" for 1900 gold and some i450 blue gear for 1999 gold.. (someone posted the same blue for 5K so that helped a lot)..

I'm still amazed why people roll need on World Drops, blue or purple, those sell very well, nothing ruins it by someone needing it and no chance for the rest and the "needer" to sell it..

One side note on the selling of pets, you can sell cross server. So if you need to move gold, and the prices on the new server aren't in your favor, selling pets across servers is an option. It is slow, and prices aren't always great, but it does help.

how much gold did you make on AH ???
number available on the statistics part in the achievement folder
(there is also total gold earned, but i'm afraid that even if it add your direct sales thought /2 , it may add gold transfert from 1 toon to another and so dooblon)


my toons made 3,1 millions in AH since day1 on my server (current gold 700k). i try to spent the less time possible and focus only on hight margin operations

i know one of the hardcore player did 5,5millions (he's gold capped, 1,2m in bank) i've yet to ask to one onf my teammate, also a very very active AH guy

so bad those number not available in web armurery, and allow us to have a ranking :D

I'd never noticed that before!

Interesting, it highlights just how much I make off trade and on one to one big item deals rather than the AH. Total from AH is 3 mil in sales, I currently have 2 mil in gold plus more in goods, but overall I know the actual amount made is much closer to 5-6 mil.

Speaking of big ticket items, the JC panthers are still going good for me, regularly selling for 28-30k which is a decent 10k or so profit (though I did just blow 400k on a Spectral Tiger mount so :D)

OH YEAH! Sold my Goblin Engie Rocket again. made a lame ass 10k on it though! Had to do some AH PvP (Must admit that I had me some fun again in it).

Selling the smelted Ghost Iron bars is still so stupid! Ive been making 400-700% margins on that shiat! haha LOVE IT! SO much so that I am almost sold out of the thousands and thousands of ore that I ganked few months back. I ran out of room on my bank toon and just stoped buying it all up. GAH! Should have know better.

OH YEAH! Forgot (guess I just wanted to forget) that I have LOST MY ASS on 4 trinkets that I ganked at 10k each as they are now down to 6k. I fliped them very ones last month for a few thousand each, but me thinks that maybe the new patch and all its goodies have inspired peeps to dump thier stock of them. bah!

Been checking my servers.. it would be either a loss or break even. Not enough herb bots.

So, decided to move my ele shammy jc/alch to my new server to support my hunter, and abandon my spriest. So I needed to move more stuff. I'm tired of trying to sell mounts and taking a loss on them, and looking at the AH, there's just nothing that's gonna make a profit, or even break even much, unless I spent months sniping deals.

So I decided to have some fun with my old server's AH one last time. Knowing that I was gonna take a loss no matter what I moved, I bought out:

every Living Steel
every Trillium bar
all Trillium ore under 25g each (there was a jump between the last I bought at 19, the next was at 25)
all Golden Lotus
all raw Primal Diamonds, raw Wild Jade, and raw Amethysts

Hopefully some enterprising goblin sees that someone just sucked up a huge amount of stuff, and takes the opportunity to jack around with the prices.

I figure that I can sit on the bars until the forge is opened up in 5.2 and there's a small increase in demand for new stuff. Or I can use it to make mounts or something. The Gl can be used as well, so worst case I consume it myself for pots and transmutes.

No idea as to why...but the Ghost bars are flying off the shelf. Seems teh mining bots have left our server some time back. SO glad that I had the capital to buy up all of the last ore bot run. hehe WoOt!
