|© Nev 2004, Taking It Easy|
It's been a slow money making week for me this week, I've been kicking back & taking it easy at the AH mainly because I finally got my warrior to level 75 & maxed her Blacksmithing. I've also been achievement hunting, raising alts & planning a new experiment so although I've made money, I definitely can see the difference that easing off has made in my glyph market.
The only things in the above list of items that I spent gold to produce are the Greater Eternal Essences (mat cost of about 12-15g per) & the Hurricane Enchant scroll - I actually bought 3 at 300g each because I knew they would sell at 600g or more. Obviously I bought herbs for the glyphs too but I've been a bit lazy on glyphing this week so not that much on herbs to be honest!
Having maxed my Blacksmith this week (Wednesday evening) I thought I'd seperate out her sales & auctions so I could see which items I made for levelling were actually selling. I already had all the ores I needed as I've been lazy on shuffling recently & I knew I needed some for this girlie when she finally got to 75!
I also bought a few extra plans to fill out the Bloodied Pyrium PvP set. Interestingly enough, whilst my server may be great for glyphs, plate pvp stuff sells for below material costs! Volatile fires sell for an average of 12-15g each so even with Elementium ore at 2g each, the minimum cost for the cheapest Bloodied Pyrium piece (bracers) should be 160g-ish & it's currently listed at 110g. The Bloodied Pyrium Belts are down to 30-50g - needless to say, I bought those to disenchant! Heavenly Shards are still 50g and upwards so if I can't reset the price to a more sensible level, at least I can still get back a hefty chunk of cost from disenchanting them.
I'm going to continue keeping my Blacksmithing sales seperate for a while to get a clearer picture of the market. It adds a little extra work to the daily gold summary I do as my PC is very slow when changing alts but I think it's worth it. I'm also going to have a look at some of the lower level items to see if there's anything worth crafting on a regular basis.
Just as a footnote, I get asked regularly what addon I use for the sales screenshots - it's called MySales & it's really easy to use.
Happy goldmaking peeps :)
