I think I may have discovered the hole in my server's AH for certain things...

A tip for thos ethat realm transfer for goblining; Ysera (NA), alliance side is crazy high prizes for a lot of stuff, plenty of margin for making gold by lowering the market.

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.

So for my second shot, I think I bought every Temporal Crystal and Fractured Temporal Crystal on the AH to make 2 more scrolls (yeah, there wasn't much). I've posted them at 25k each. Let's see what happens.

If they don't sell at that I won't mind much - it cost me less than 8k each to craft, I'm sure I can make a profit as the only seller.

The big pet for pet battlers early on will be the tailoring pet (Elekk Plushie...did I spell that right?) as it will be needed for an achievement to get another pet and is the current "end game" for pet battles in Draenor. I don't know how quickly the market will swing, but if you can make those quickly enough you might be able to make some gold in the early part of the expansion (until there are a ton on the AH).

Surprised to still be the only person selling Mark of the Frostwolf. I'd have thought a lot of enchanters would save up 5 Secrets for a weapon enchant, but so far I've only seen one person with Mark of the Thunderlord. My 25k scrolls haven't sold yet.

Selling raw best hides at 20g a pop, so 400g in stacks of 20 while having like 300 of those = nice.

Skinning is the only gathering prof you have to sacrifice a plot to get if you aren't a skinner and the barn doesn't produce that much a day, a skinner alt it's must!

You have to spend 35 skins daily for your tannery.

Hrm...well I am crafting all my ore right now, but my leathers are selling for 40g each right now. My Garrison is consuming so much of my mats though...but I am still making the gold!

I will be upping my Engie first though and there are some COOL THINGS THIS TIME!

What am I supposed to do with all my ore? Sitting around 400/800 of both types, doing my Forge CDs, BS CDs. I will keep some back for alts but right now I am swimming in ore.

What's it take to craft the BoE epics? Or the pet? You could get to selling those, if they're not too expensive.

I've been mailing all my ore to my Paladin, but haven't actually touched the character since launch, so no idea what I'll do with that.


On my end: I sold one of my weapon enchants for 15k gold. The other is still on the AH. I have competition from two other sellers, but one doesn't seem to be undercutting. I'm saving up for one of the other enchants now (the one that's actually recommended for my toon. Oops).

I've somehow ended up a few days behind on my Alchemy cooldowns, so no Greater Flask yet... Wonder what the demand there is.

Biggest issue is that everything takes daily CD mats to craft and the mine just makes so much ore. I've yet to see a way to really burn them, but havn't really looked into the issue too much yet. It is the same issue for every profession. I feel like gatherable mats are gonna be pretty much useless unless they give us a way to burn a ton of ore/herbs/etc to make those daily CD mats without a cooldown.

You have to wait for the ore to come up as an option on the Trading Post, though. Seems to be random each day what they'll accept for work orders.

A quick peek on Wowhead suggests the best way to get rid of Blackrock Ore is selling it to Jewelcrafters, Alchemists, and Engineers, who all appear to have recipes that use it without a cooldown-limited ingredient.

Unless the engineer is a miner, and is also swimming in the ore.

I know I surely am, so I'm trying to fill work orders to the max whenever they come up on the trading post. And I still sit comfortably around 300 or so.

I've been selling the daily enchanting crystal. I figure I'm not going to be doing anything with them right away. Raiding doesn't open for a bit and I'm not wasting enchants on non-heroic gear so I may as well strike while the iron is hot. Used a lot of that money to buy herbs to mill into inks for inscription research. I'll probably invest in some more herbs (my herbalist is not in Draenor yet... too many other fish to fry) but that's fine because the return on glyphs is criminal anyways, even if you're buying herbs at an inflated price.

My priest's garrison needed blackrock ore for the trading post today. CAN DO. Now what do I do with the other 600 in my bank?! Glad to see my DK can make use of them with JC.

I actually paid attention while posting auctions for once and realised my addon had gone insane. Apparently I've been the only one posting some old enchants, and my posting rules are to go over market price if I'm the only one posting. So for the last couple of weeks some of my enchants have been steadily increasing their own prices because I was setting the market price. I had a crit to wrist enchant listing at 12,000 gold.

So I created a new rule, and moved all the old enchants over to it. Now my "normal" price ignores the market and just posts at four times the material cost. I'll lose profit on some enchants when there's no competition on something that's usually expensive, but I won't have that awful feedback on the ones no one is selling.


Also, note for all professions: When you hit 700 skill, your daily crafting cooldown resets (because the "create x items based on skill" is replaced with the guaranteed version).

Okay, anyone understand how the Temporal Crystal cooldown works? I hit 700 skill today and my recipe was replaced by a new one that always makes a Temporal Crystal instead of (a chance of) only Fragments. But when I used it, it came up with "Cooldown remaining: 9 Days". Then just now I hit the button again for some reason and it let me make 2 more. When I'd made the last one, the cooldown changed to 19 hours.

So, all in all I've made 4 Temporal Crystals today: 1 with the old skillup spell, 3 with the max rank spell. And my cooldown is now going to reset at 19:45 server tomorrow. What is going on with that?

(Also, just to annoy me more, learning the new spell has caused tradeskillmaster to decide making Temporal Crystals costs 14g each, affecting its decision making on when to craft and post enchants. They're currently 650g each.)

Ore, leathers and Herbs seems to be easy to get and not much to burn them on. I always made my gold on the parts and now crafting usable goods. Seems that I will have to adapt, although the Glyph and Gem markets on my server are still FULL!

I am burning my ore on the rockets and the shields that you can make with your Engie, so that has been fun!
