Nothing new that involves the scrolls that I'm aware of. There are new glyphs which will be discovered on the new island. For those daily scrolls.. eh.. make staffs to sell? I stopped making those a long time ago.

28 days, not weeks.. :-) But a month is still a long time. Maybe they'll change that.

Still debating if I want to just make bags, or wait until 5.4 hits and make the new cloth.

Since LW and BS have similar stuff, I think they might be done. There's going to be free 496's all over, so while shards will be cheap, lower end enchant saies might go up.

Add in virtual realms, and who knows.. :D

Also.. I'm buying up cheap mats and cooked foods to make the new noodle carts. Since those require a wide range of mats, there should be an increase in other mat prices.

Oh shit that's true.

I wish they'd at least be BoA. I have LW on my paladin... not going to be super helpful to have some BoP leather/mail items. :P

Depending on your herb/relic market, relics might still be able to net a decent bit.

I buy everything but fools cap 1.25g/ea or less, and fools cap 2.5g and lower.

Been selling trinkets at:
Tank 4-6k
Caster 6-8k
Healer 6-8k
Melee 9.5k+


Works out that each card ends up costing me about 200-300g to make, with 8 needed makes it 1.6-2.4k per deck. Allows even some room to buy single cards to complete decks, depending on the prices of them. (ofc this is including trading in ink of dreams for starlights)

Yeah, that kinda sucks for people who have professions that don't match their armor type. Leg enchants will still sell, and you might want to stockpile some of those for all the folks that will be getting these nice shiny 496's on all their alts.

Looking at it on my tailor, it will take 490 bolts of Windwool to make the belt and legs, which is equivalent to 7 satchels, or about 17.5k at current prices on my AH. So, 17.5k for two crafted items isn't bad. However, it does lock you in on your tier set, and you might get hosed if tier legs drop. I'm thinking I may just craft the belt and keep selling satchels.

BoPs are nice when they are a bit better, or are an awesome model (thinking back to the crafted BoP shoulders from BT), but not so great when they very well might get replaced by a raid drop, and are not heavily styled slots.

Trying to sell a few satchels now. Success of that may determine what I do with my piles of cloth.

Hmm.. must check these prices on my realm.

Only caution is expect to need a decent bit of wisdoms to finish decks without needing to buy singles (but keep an eye on singles that you need, I recent picked some up for some decks for below what the mats cost to make a card is - 150-250g for some cards).


I currently use 2x of my own scribes daily, and have a friend letting me use 2x of his as well. Also have some friends with unused scrolls that let me use their CDs when they remember to actually do them. Also found offering 30-50g per wisdom along with 3 ink of dreams per nets some people willing to do business, although I find obtaining enough inks with 2/4/6 available wisdoms/day hard enough to justify needing even MORE while buying from randoms.

I'm really surprised those trinkets still sell. I guess it does make sense though since I read for some classes in PvP those trinkets are better than Tyrannical trinkets which is kinda pathetic when you think about it :<

It's not that surprising when you consider all the gear normalization that happens in PVP now, and all the nerfs/changes to PVP power and resilience. There are probably some other nice hidden OP things that Blizz unintentionally created along the way..

Keep in mind that other than spending VP/getting lucky with LFR, that the trinkets are still one of the better ways to boost people's iLvl of new alts in terms of cost & output wise, short of spending 20k+ on a 522 BoE.

Not to mention most will have made 5k+ while questing from 85-90, so it basically pays for the trinket itself.

Also it is near impossible for a LFR player to get trinkets for OS.

My alts Ret MS is 494 with 476/450 trinkets and Holy OS of 470 with 450/429 trinket.

So... threadsurection here, I've been looking about and trying to find the best way to process mats. I've taken it upon myself to level one of each class to 90, and since each alt has at least 1 gathering prof, I'm going to be rolling in mats.

You guys got any tips on the best way to process these, whether just selling them as-is, the old ore shuffle, or something else? I have every prof at least to zen if not 600, and two farms completely unlocked with two more I could unlock right now. Of course, some of the profs in the 500-525 range are not going to have all the recipes.

What should I prioritize as far as getting more recipes? I'm pretty good on BS (balanced trillium doesn't teach me anything anymore), LW, getting there on JC, ench is 600 but not that developed, but the rest of the production profs need to be leveled and don't have access to SOSS trainers yet.

I have not played much in the last 6 mo, but I was still selling bars and stacks of ore. Belts were fine, but I logged in last night and no one on my friends list or in my guild have been on in weeks!

Seems that they have messed up on no new content till Xpac. While I do have the next Xpac already, many I know will not be coming back as they are into other games now at this point. As for me, Neverwinter is my new game. So I've been plying my Goblin skills in there! Though you can use real money to convert to game coin, I still find it fun to flip the rare stuff!

Wow.. this thread is back.

So, to answer Brute's question.. don't worry about it, because it's all changing in WoD. The only thing I would worry about now is finishing off the professions you want to 600.

In WoD:
Milling... GONE!
Prospecting... GONE!
lvl 90 alts sitting in SW/Org crafting max level stuff... GONE!
squadron of scribes to crank out DMF trinkets... likely GONE!

All your professions are going to roll through your Garrisons, and to produce the new stuff, you WILL need to level your toon through the garrison. So that guy on your server that has 20+ scribes to crank out those cards, he's gonna need to level each of those toons through a garrison.

I do my farm every day (1 minute) and then every fortnight I make a bunch of flasks from those herbs plus herbs I buy for spirit of harmony and sell them; nets me a nice 4-6k every 2 weeks for doing practically nothing.

Looks like I've got some reading to do... this is entirely new information.

As for what I went with, I'm mostly just burning daily transmutes and such and trying to add value to raw mats to get them to a balancing point between "raw materials" and "too specific to sell quickly" and w/o working at it too much, I seem to be bringing in a nice trickle.

Best easy profit generator I've used regularly is uncut meta gems. I can create the materials from prospecting and transmuting w/ my transmute specced alchemist, I get the golden lotus off the farms, and occasionally proc extra gems. It's nice to proc an extra meta... that's like 350 bonus gold. The cut gems will sell eventually, but the people selling cut gems seem to watch the AH like a hawk and narrowing your market makes items sell slower anyway, so after having an Austere gem show back up in my mail for about a week before finally selling for 500 I gave up on that. The extra gold was nice but I'd rather have high volume low markup over high markup low volume.

I may be erring by using trillium to make balanced trillium ingots and exotic leather -> hardened magnificent hide though... I'm too lazy to sit in trade to try to sell a finished epic piece, but the one I made doesn't seem to be moving. So lesson here is that if you don't want to try to find a buyer in /2, you might just want to sell the trillium bars, despite the huge markup from a months worth of transmuting it and crafting a piece. Doing the math though, if trillium bars are worth 30g on your server, even selling an epic BS piece for 2k is still a 2:1 markup.

I think it's about time this thread was revived.

It's day 5 of the expansion, and so it's possible to purchase weapon enchant recipes for the first time. I picked up Mark of the Frostwolf (chance to proc 500 Multistrike for 6 seconds, stacks twice) first thing this morning, and I just sold my first scroll.

Now, because I was testing the water I only posted it using my default posting operation, which set it to about 8k gold, something like 40% markup on crafting. But right now it seems I'm the only seller. So, when I start crafting again: Should I take advantage while I can? What price could I get away with here? How much do you think the price will drop over the next few weeks?

On another note, Breath of Mastery ring enchants seem to sell very well, despite every enchanter having the recipe and bags full of levelling mats.

Finally, a question: Are the illusion enchants from the garrison tradeable, or only personal?

Always abuse the market in the first few days.

When glyphs were a novelty I was the first on my server to discover the penguin, being new to the trade I sold the first few for 1k, then seeing how the request was high, I was solo in the market and there was an obvious issue with materials being scarce, I raised the price all the way in excess of 10k.

The idea is, this is the only one available, if you want it now? you pay. and plenty will be eager to pay.

Until you are the only vendor the price is what you ask.
