Sales at the beginning of the week were slow & I was all excited for the patch to hit. It's the first really major patch since I started seriously making gold so I only had other peoples' stories to go by. Sales of 58k looks good this week but I actually spent quite a lot (17k) on ores & volatiles where the prices were just too good to ignore so my cash increase for the week was 41k.
Most of the items that made it to the top of the Mysales screenshot are a result of Patch sales. If you're a regular reader, you know I tend to make most of my gold with glyphs & cut rare gems. However, one of the tips I picked up from the Consortium guys was cloak enchants - off I went to check prices & see what stocks I had & promply realised no-one was covering the +50 critical strike enchant for the cloak. I started my price at around 250g per scroll but soon raised it to 325g as the supply of Greater Celestial Essences dried up & GCE prices shot up to 140g each!
I've also managed to sell a few of the Enchant Cloak - Protection scrolls for around 375g and the Cloak - Greater Intellect around the 475g mark. Not so many of those due to competition & the fact that the +50 crit only takes 2 GCE's whereas the Gtr Int takes 4. I also made a few of the Enchant Chest - Mighty Stats but competition was fierce so I've just stayed with the cloak enchants for now.
The only glyph to make the top page this week is, of course, the brand new shaman Glyph of Unleashed Lightning. I was the first to list on Wednesday morning & quickly sold 5 at 575g each, unfortunately competition arrived rapidly & by Friday morning, they were down to 95g each.
Whilst my scribe was the first toon I logged to get the glyph & the new relic recipes, she's also my JC so off I went to grab the new PVP rings & necklace recipes/patterns. I trotted round to the AH only to find that all of the JC items were already listed by multiple players - but none of the relics were so I listed just 1 of each.
I think most gold bloggers were forecasting/expecting inferno rubies to sell fast & high priced but even today (Monday) the prices on my server are struggling to get up to 120g, which is where they were just 2 or 3 weeks ago. Demonseye & Ember Topaz's on the other hand have shot up in price & even some of the Amberjewel cuts have hit 60g+.
I haven't been stockpiling dreamcloth on my tailor but I kinda regret that now! The epic spellthreads have been selling quite well with the few bits I did have but my tailor is badly neglected so now this is where I pay my price! Going forward, I now know to watch the spellthread markets & I guess the leg armour markets for my also neglected Leatherworker.
I did make a few pieces of the new Bloodthirsty PvP armour in both Leatherworking & my Blacksmith but none have sold so far. I guess they will start to move this week when the new season starts but if not, I have a rogue who can use the leather items & either my pally or DK can use the plate ones!
Besides all this Patch 4.2 stuff, good old Chocolate Cookies & Greater Eternal Essences once again make the top page of results. I now have some competition in the cookie market but I've slapped him (my husband) & told him he's got to wait until I get my cap! Hopefully another week of sales like the last few days & I may have to start writing my WarcraftEcon interview.
PS I use the Mysales addon for the screenshots, really easy to use & configure using just /ms window or /ms config commands.
