What's Been Selling This Week?

© Nev 2006, Looking Thoughtful
So my sales for the week have gone back up to normal with a liquid gold increase of 55k. Now I'm not sure if I've messed up my maths somewhere, but I reckon that means I only spent 4.5k gold on mats this week! I suppose with the number of gems I've been selling from my guildbank, that is feasible & when I checked my glyph stocks yesterday morning, I found my answer to why my glyph sales felt like they were dropping! Guess who's been so busy with alts that she forgot to stock up on glyphs? Yup - me!

Gem sales have been pretty good this week & even with my alchemy transmutes, I can't keep up with the demand for Inferno Rubies. I've almost sold out of Ember Topaz too which is a nice surprise although I still have shedloads of Amberjewels to get rid of. Shadowspirit diamond cuts have been selling too although the prices seem to be dropping again, down to 70g for a few cuts although my newest cut - the Austere, is selling nicely.

I also did a bit of crafting & disenchanting this week - I just love the Enchanted Thorium Blades - in my screenshot above, that price is for singles! Material costs are around the 8-10g mark & each one is selling between 63-78g although there are slow days when I get them returned. The Infinite Dust is from the Wrath gems that I disenchanted & the mat cost for those is maybe 2-3g whereas the dust is selling for 5-8g each.

Chocolate cookies are still selling too - my cooking skills are increasing nicely on 2 or 3 of my alts & to be honest, I'm very tempted to start the other alts on the cooking dailies too, just to get the cocoa beans!

I managed to pick up some nice cheap Borean Leather so I made up a few Mammoth Mining Bags & my stocks of Embersilk are threatening to overflow my bank space so I made a few Embersilk Bags to make some room & test the market. I've not been making the most of my Tailoring so that's on my to-do list as well.

So that's about it for last weeks' sales - nothing majorly different so just poodling along nicely for now. This morning when I logged in & collected my overnight sales, I let out a happy little Woop Woop! I hit 800k liquid gold almost spot on so here's the screenie just for posterity & proof :D


  1. Grats on 800k! Quite an insane amount of gold :)

    The price of GEE is so high on your server, I feel envious every time I read your weekly report. I sell those for profit too (20-25g each here). I don't have a BS yet, so I am making Runecloth headbands instead, though I get more dust that essences from them. Have you tried those?

  2. I didnt see it on your sales, but you may look into investing in the Reckless Ember Topaz cut. I sell that one at a much higher rate than my other orange gems.

  3. I dont see how its possible to spend 4.5k in mats and get a return of 50k+. The best I can do is double my money. If I spend 4.5k on mats I will get a return of about 9k if I'm lucky. Can you give some info as to how you're getting such a huge return on such a small investment? I deal with the same items you seem to be selling and I get no where near that. Also to turn that 4.5k into 9k takes me way more than a week at selling at lowest on the AH. Something is not adding up here.

    @Anon, I'm guessing she's probably selling her stockpile, among other things. But, if you buy low, in qty, it's totally possible without the stockpile anyway.

    Okay, I've been fiddling with My Sales since yesterday...how do you get the per-toon tally? Cuz that's what I want.

  5. @Anon, I agree with you tbh & if you look at my first paragraph, you'll see I stated that I think I've messed up the maths :) However as Scottie says too - I have been cutting gems exclusively from my guild bank so all those gem sales in the screenshot are pure profit in this week (as in I didn't pay out for them this week but ages ago). The weekly figures don't come from an addon, they are manual so mistakes are always possible.

  6. @Scottie - in the /ms config window you can change how it records but then you will only see the results for a toon when you are logged into that toon, if you see what I mean? I used to do that but it was a complete pain to get numbers together.

  7. Hey man I love ur blog, Maybe wanna Link my blog to yours and i do same to yours =)?
