Tailoring has a chance to get bolts from the crop in addition to the cloth. It is always Bolts+Cloth too. I can use 8 plots for cloth and come out ahead of pre-5.2 using 16 plots for cloth.

Not just for Tailors - my Miner/Smith got Bolts from cactus seeds just fine. :)

in all seriousness, are there better yields in the farms than actually just going out and, you know, mining/herbing/killing?

I am with you there CHunes!

I ONLY get MoH off all my farms. I can buy/gather faster and more on my own. My alts dotn do much in the world to get the MoH howerver.

That's what I'm wondering. The farm is likely better, but then it's limited too. Going to get a better sample size, but I'm not overwhelmed by the supposed increases.

Unless you're lucky the farm is a better place for trillium. Haven't leveled my tailor yet so it is my best source of cloth and it is more than enough to keep us in Flasks. Us in this case is the guild. I deposit weeds, guild elixir master makes flasks.

For getting a lot of stuff quickly of course it isn't as good but for keeping yourself supplied over the course of a week it is ideal.

Also, Golden Lotus. There's a reason that those were 300 a pop when MoP hit.

The rest of this is spot on. Enigmas are also powering my (seemingly returned *cheer*) potion market - the farm gives me quite a bit of random weeds for potions, and I just fly my druid up to Skyrange and back each day for a quick Green Tea Leaf pass when he does his farm. 5 minutes at most each day, plenty of GTL for pots.

Side note: Tested the Leather seeds yesterday. Full 16-plot farm gave around 70 Exotic Leather. No scales though, you'll have to get those manually it seems. (I try to hang around the daily sets for the crocs at Whitepetal Lake or the Turtles in Dread Waste when I'm low on those - any other good spots?)

Edit: Anyone selling the new 458 PvP crafted pieces? Trying to figure out where to price mine - the 450s go for 500 (cloth is lower though) - what should I price the 458s at?

Hi Jab,

I sell all my PvP crafted gears for 1230g for all slot items. I some times have to repost 2-4x, but that is a CRAZY stupid margin and so worth that effort.

Not big money, but the danio was the fish of the day, and hardly anyone was fishing. Fished up 10 stacks in under and hour, and none was listed on the AH, so it all went up for 11G50s each. Probably should have posted higher. But the fish and the misc ore from the crates should yield 3k for less than an hour's work while BSing in Mumble.

I'm selling a ton of Jade Squash at 130g per 25. What I don't get is what everyone is doing with all of it. I didn't see any 300 stat food recipes that use it but hey if they're buying I couldn't care less if they threw them out after they bought them.

Spirit feasts. Healers get int from the other ones for some stupid reason. Could also be people just maxing their Way of the Steamer.

Yeah, that's a losing game on any item that's even relatively easy to come by.

What are your prices for soy sauce, and the other ironpaw mats? You could turn those squash in for tokens, and buy the soy sauce, etc.

Those mats took me forever to move which is why I moved to the raw mats. They've started to move albeit at a considerably lower price but given that it was basically overflow from my alt farms I'm still making a healthy profit.

Tailoring alt finally hit exalted with AC yesterday with close to 100 silk from my purposely slow climb. The money is raining from the sky right now. Bags selling at almost 4900g each but I don't see this lasting very long.

Not having my fleet of crafters over here is really hamstringing me on what potentially could be double if not triple what I'm bringing in now a day but I just can't justify all the rerolls/server xfers right now.

Hybrid gems, mostly orange, are up to 180g at the moment! I buy raws at 80g and make 100g profit on each.

Scopes are up to 900g (they were 150g before), I guess Torto's dropping a lot of bows, and that last week that LFR wing opened up.
