Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales 13.04.21

Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales

Fortnightly Sales Report – 13th March

This fortnightly reset has been very busy on the gold-making front, hence the sales report’s slight delay. With the Darkmoon Faire, Outland Timewalking, and Noblegarden, there have been many opportunities to invest my gold in many different markets.

I created a post regarding the event, Noblegarden, and the brief collapse of the Swift Springstriders, which came to fruition on most of my realms. I purchased some mounts where the value dictated. Hopefully, you got in on the act too. Remember, you want to start posting these in a couple of weeks/months when the market stabilizes. The event introduced more mounts meaning the supply significantly outnumbered the demand, driving the mounts valuation down. The valuation will return to normal once the supply falls in line with the demand.

For clarification as to why I only post fortnightly, please check this article for further information.


TSM Ledger For 30th April to 13th March:

Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales Data via TSMLedger

As expected, I’ve made a loss this fortnight due to purchasing cheap mounts and other bargains within other markets. I made 4,3m gold in sales, notably flipping, Exotic Leather, a Pattern: Shifting Cloak, 61x Medallion of the Legion, and a selection of mounts. I’ve added screenshots below outlining a selection of my sales, categorized where possible.

I spent just over 4,3m gold, investing in 204x Medallion of the Legion, Battle Pets, Legion BoEs, Island Expedition Transmog, Raw Materials, and of course, Swift Springstriders. There were a lot more purchases, but these were the primary investments.


My Sales:

Island Expedition Transmog:

This fortnight proved to be another great result on the Island Expedition Transmog front. Investing in late BFA on the Stinkrot Smasher’s is proving to be rewarding. I was buying these for between 15-35k before the release of Shadowlands.


Legion BoEs:

Fortnightly Legion BoEs sales

I remember in Legion when you couldn’t sell Cyno’s Mantle of Sin for love, nor money, and now they’re flying off the shelves – well, this fortnight anyway. Another good fortnight of Legion BoEs sales!


Crafted Uncanny & Dreadful Gear:

Fortnightly Dreadful Gear Sales

I won’t lie; I was disappointed in this fortnight sales return, and rightfully so. It’s hard to gauge why, but it could be the lure of other content; if it is the case, there should be an improvement next fortnight. If not, there could be competition undercutting me, preventing sales.


Recipes:

Fortnightly Recipe Sales

There was a standout sale this fortnight, the sale of the Pattern: Shifting Cloak for 300k. There were some more minor sales, showing that there’s still value in operating in this market.


Replica Transmog:

Fortnightly Replica Transmog Sales

If you saw my tweet on Twitter during the week, you’d have seen the mailbox I opened with a substantial amount of Replica Transmog sold on one realm. Believe it or not, but you can get many sales towards the end of the Darkmoon Faire as players check the Auction House for missing items to complete their set.

At the time of posting this article (15/04/21), I had 1,144 visitors this month, of which 172 visitors read my article on Replica Transmog. To explain the significance of this number and how popular this market has become, I had 2,873 visitors last month, of which only 10 visitors read my Replica Transmog article. As this market increases in popularity so will competition, looking for that sale, be sure to adjust your valuations accordingly.


Battle Pets:

Fortnightly Battle Pet Sales

It’s been a while since I’ve seen this many Battle Pet sales. Remember, these are just the best sales. The image(s) would have been too large had I added them all.


Selected Sales:

Fortnightly Selected Sales

I managed to sell a considerable amount of Exotic Leather, Golden Lotus, and Spirit of Harmony. I took advantage of these materials when developers nerfed The Golden Stair farm in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. As players slowly move away from the content from the final patch of BFA, the amount of materials gathered from Pandaria slowly falls, and the demand increases, increasing their valuations. The sales above illustrate the rise in MoP raw materials demand and valuation.

It was also another good fortnight selling 61x Medallion of the Legion for 255k. I also sold a Teebu’s Scorching Straight Sword, many mounts, including Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger, Goldenmaine’s Reins, and a Tome of Polymorph: Polar Bear.


If you’ve read this sales report today and some categories have sparked some interest, be sure to check out the links to be directed to my guides. I post auctions once a fortnight and don’t cancel or repost, so if I can make these sales over a fortnight, imagine what you can achieve if you have more time to post regularly or cancel and repost.

For more information as to why I only post once a fortnight, check this article.

Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales 29.03.21

Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales

Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales – 29.03.2021

Today I bring you my gold-making sales report for the previous fortnight 15.03.21 – 29.03.21. It’s been another excellent fortnight of sales, and what’s more, you can do it too! I have some helpful guides and posts all linked below. I will be adding more in the comming weeks, so keep those eyes peeled!

I experienced a lot of issues during this reset, mainly regarding my internet service provider. There was an issue with the broadband and telephone line to the house from the exchange, meaning that I experienced high ping and low download and upload speeds.

The knock-on effect meant that although I was successfully posting auctions, albeit very slowly, I could not carry out as many shopping scans as I’d liked; this resulted in me having a positive profit margin this reset, compared to the previous fortnights reset.


TSM Ledger:

The summary of this fortnights sales can be seen below, thanks to the TSMLedger image below:

My Posting Routine:

I can only post once every two weeks to clarify why and what my posting routine consists of; check out My Posting Routine for more information.


Gold-Making Sales:

Below you can see my sales, categorized with helpful links to my guides/posts for those who are interested incorporating these markets into your posting routines. More guides will be comming!

When consolidating all the sales into one category, some parts look distorted; this is merely due to the different mailbox sizes and aspect ratios when cropping to one image. This scenario happens when I multi-box to empty mail on some characters, and when I take screenshots of my mailboxes obviously the aspect ratios will differ compared to those that use the default World of Warcraft applcation.

WoW Gold-Making: Fortnightly Sales 14.03.21

Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales

The best part of gold-making in World of Warcraft is when you access your mailbox, and you have a vast amount of gold to collect from the sales you’ve made. To increase the number of sales you can make, simply follow some of my suggestions below.

While it’s imperative to be the cheapest auction on the Auction House to guarantee sales, (i.e. cancel scanning and reposting) it also helps to have a wide range of auctions on the Auction House. I’m sure you’ve heard of Joe Bloggs; he solely operates in the Transmog market but he often complains that he doesn’t get many sales. However, I also work in the Transmog market, but I also complement it with other markets, Battle Pets, Raw Materials, Recipes, etc. Diversifying your auctions through different markets will help you engage with more potential customers, thus increasing your sales per reset. Operating within many markets will have its drawbacks, more significantly, the increased posting time needed to post all your auctions to the Auction House.

Here are my previous fortnightly reset sales for 28.02.2114.03.21. Please check out my Posting Routine for a detailed explanation as to why I only post fortnightly.

Gold-Making Sales – Selected Sales of Interest

The gold-making total for this fortnight was 4,9m gold, I sold 25083 items. I continued investing, where the market allowed me, and purchased 268593 items, spending 5,3m gold. This equates to a 384k gold loss. If you have the gold it’s important to continue investing and building your inventory. Remember what I explained above about diversity and operating in many different markets to maximise your sales – this is also a solid basis for trading outside of gold-making in World of Warcraft.

These stats were collected and calculated using the TSM Ledger.


Tankard O’ Profit Update

For those that may have missed my updates on Twitter, I’ve had some epic sales with the new Brewfest ilvl 82 Tankards. The Terrific Tankard O’ Terror and Tremendous Tankard O’ Terror have proven to be very profitable on certain realms. I emphasise certain, as I believe this market works best on a low/medium populated realm – but I wouldn’t rule out higher populated realms. If you missed my previous post regarding the Tankards, I originally suggested that these may be difficult to flip, due to the low ilvl of 82, but it appears there is a market after all.

The benefit of this market is the issue surrounding the ilvl when players post on the Auction House. TSM only recognise the ilvl 82 tankards as ilvl 44 which is incorrect. By using the default Auction House UI, we can shop specific tankards by ilvl 82 that have been miss-priced. At first, I only purchased cheap tankards, to test how the market would be and a week into the World Event, it’s proved very profitable.

The lowest sale I’ve had so far is 35k, but I’ve also sold four Tankards at 70k or above. The average price I purchased these at was 6k. Below I’ve added my TSM Ledger for the tankard sales.


I have included the other sales within a gallery below, click the image to enlarge. I will continue to update this market via Twitter, so keep your eyes peeled for updates. If the price is right and you have some gold that you can afford to risk, get involved and make some decent profit before pre-patch hits. These Tankards will not be worthwhile once pre-patch hits as the items available will have a greater ilvl. My guess is pre-patch being delayed further may have aided these sales.


Since posting this post, I’ve been in discussion with @TheSlickrock on Twitter and he was kind enough to transfer a character on to the PTR with the Uncanny crafted Gear and Tankards and I was surprised to see how they were affected by the incoming ilvl and level squish.

Update: The Tankard squished to ilvl 82 (previously ilvl 425) dramatically below that of the incoming pre-patch gear of ilvl 100 at level 50. The Uncanny gear squished to ilvl 72, which is a greater reduction to that of the PTR.

Sadly I have no explanation as to why someone paid for 3 Tankards at 70k each, the only thing that I could imagine is the delay of the release of pre-patch and someone needed sufficient ilvl maybe to enter Normal/Heroic/Mythic Ny’alotha for a boost?!


If you’re participating in this market, let me know how you’ve got on too or get involved in the discussion on Twitter. Thanks for reading!

EDIT: Since the release of the Shadowlands pre-patch, the items mentioned above have since had their item levels reduced, all Tankards posted above have had their item levels updated to reflect this. If there’s any I’ve missed, please let me know in the comments. [14.10.2020]

My First Month Back…

One Month And Counting

Well, today marks one month since my long-awaited return to World of Warcraft and what a ride it’s been… The timing of my return coupled with Blizzards 100% leveling boost and the Governments advice for the general public to stay home due to the coronavirus lockdown, made gold-making extremely profitable this month. Towelliee, mentioned in the build-up to his Shadowlands Alpha stream that “if the lockdown is prolonged further, there may be an extension to the boost!” I doubt it will happen, but you never know with the lack of content from here to the release of Shadowlands.

Getting Started

As mentioned in a previous blog post my inventory and gold took a hit, due to expired mail expiring and thus getting deleted, so with 5000 gold to my name on a new realm and an abundance of new materials at my disposal, my first port of call was collecting a lot of Marks of Honor through weekly PvP and Battlegrounds; so I could purchase the new recipes for the Uncanny gear. In the beginning, I concentrated on 3 professions, Blacksmithing, Leatherworking, and Tailoring, but with Guilded Silkweave extremely expensive on my realm, Tailoring ended up being ditched to one-side so I replaced it with Inscription.

Blacksmithing and Leatherworking were no brainers, Plate gear and an armory of weapons and Leatherworking gave me Leather and Mail items, not forgetting the Bow too… these 2 professions alone, gave me an extremely vast amount of gear. Inscription gave me the chance to craft the Compendium trinkets which have been very profitable at the beginning, however, Zin’anthid is slowly increasing in value cutting into my profits. If time is on my side, I may look to farm it myself.

What’s Been Rolling Off The Shelves…

With regard to the leveling boost mentioned at the beginning, the main sales I’ve made are with regard to leveling. Enchants for heirlooms (and end-game gear), Gems for Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm Timewalking, Deep Sea Satin bags and without a doubt the biggest income, coming from Uncanny gear; mainly the weapons.

With Pandaria material’s extremely cheap on my realm (thanks to Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossom’s assaults), I found it a good opportunity to flip them at certain times of the week. With professions to fall back on, I could easily make use of the materials with Pandaria transmog, so the risk was very low.

Here’s a couple of mailbox screenshots full of gold from this month, notice that Recipes, Battle Pets, and poor items still sell… That Papi sale was a 100k flip too! There’s a lot more sales, but there are just some of the highlights of the month.

 

Conclusion

With the leveling boost potentially coming to an end on the 20th April, it’s fair to say that there will be a huge drop in uncanny sales, so I will be branching off back into other markets and starting up a couple of my alt realms which I sadly mistreated since my break from the game. I want to get back into Battle Pets again too, but with a lot of them lost in the mail, I think it’s fair to say a vast chunk of my investment, will be in Battle Pets in the coming days.

Below I’ve added my graph from my TSM4 dashboard. Please bear in mind, this is solely for this realm and character only. I’ve also edited out my name and realm because I know you guys like to find me (wink wink).

I reached 43k on my first day back (March 17th) and currently sitting on 1,146,661 gold

The goal so far was to reinvest my gold immediately into materials for crafting and potential flips, hence why you can see fluctuations midway through the month and a dramatic increase towards the end of the month.

Before I Go…

If you want to drop me a line, feel free to send me a DM on Twitter or my Facebook page. I do not leave my comments open on my blog, purely because of the minority of people on WordPress, that feel it’s appropriate to advertise or post malicious content there. I’m unable to monitor the comments, so it’s best that it stays closed.

I prefer DM’s on Twitter as there’s no limit to the words I can use. This helps keep everything together neatly if you require some advice from me. I’ll get back to you on either platform as soon as I possibly can, so bear with me.

Wow-Pets is now back up and detailing prices for level 1 and 25 battle pets, which is awesome. If you’re like my self and use the site to base your average prices for your pets, be sure to leave it a couple of days/weeks. This will help base a better average, as the data before the site went down has been lost, so prices will be very volatile.

Lastly, thank you for dropping on by!

Week Four Sales & Catch Up!

Welcome to my fourth installment, looking back on my sales and activity from the previous week; week ending 20.11.17. It’s been a very start & stop week to be fair; finished decorating my daughter’s bedroom on Friday and celebrated her 15th Birthday Saturday. This mean’t I missed posting auctions on Friday night through to Saturday afternoon, but I’m not too concerned. However, I think I managed very well considering.

This weeks stats:

Last weeks total: 90.5m
Gold Balance prior to opening mail: 83.6m
Total invested: 6.9m

Catch Up

For the last 2 weeks, I’ve been planning on transferring 2 alts to my main realm and this week, I finally completed the Guild transfers. Sadly, they only successfully moved on Saturday evening (taking advantage of the time away from game) meaning I only got one, possibly two days of auctions. However, I didn’t let this deter me, I’ve invested approximately 3-4m gold worth of items at approximately 25-50%  value of the destination realm, so i could at minimum, double my investment; which would later pay for the Guild transfers themselves.

If you’re planning on doing a transfer and interested in doing the same method, please do take advantage of The Undermine Journal. This is a fantastic site, that gives you the opportunity to search for items and compare prices from one realm to another. The items I look for, are items I can buy at maximum 50% the value of my destination realm. So great investments are current expansion materials (i.e. ore, herbs, cooking ingredients and profession reagents). Also worth noting, Toys, Mounts, Transmog, Legion BoEs & Battle Pets (must cage before transferring realm!)

I’ve also continued with my investments on the profession front. Antorus is only a week away and my guild banks are bulging with Enchants, Food and consumables. I’ve managed to purchase some very nice cheap Legion BoEs (Leech) too, but my aim from today, is to slowly reduce investing in this market. I don’t want a repeat of WoD and being left with a lot of BoEs that are worthless come the new expansion. This is solely based on my inventory, not an boasting, but it’s huge and it needs to be reduced! So unless I see an incredible bargain too good to refuse, my purchases within the Legion BoE market will dramatically stop!

Had to buy another 3x WoWTokens @285k each, due to gold cap reached again on an alt.

Sales

Here’s a selection of my sales. As you can see, I’ve managed to sell a lot of high ilvl Legion BoEs this week, averaging the 500k mark for each.

All that’s left to show, is my totals for each account…

Had I not needed to buy the 3 WoWTokens, I’d have surpassed the 100m gold mark this week. But I can happily wait till next week.

Totals:

End of week sales total: 99.4m
End of week profit total: 15.8m

Week Three Sales & Catch Up

Welcome to my third installment of my sales and catch up blog, looking back on the previous week (week ending 13/11/17). Also apologies for posting one day late, had some issues at home, which needed sorting prior to publishing this blog.

Catch Up

This week I continued my investments in Legion BoEs, Toy Box and Battle Pet markets.  I managed to buy 11 Sylvanas’ Music Box’s for 15k each; continued my efforts purchasing cheap Naxxy’s in readiness for the drop in competition and increased demand, once players return for the new raid Antorus.

I also power leveled a lot of my Professions on my alts, buying up cheap raw materials with the interest of crafting Transmog, Item Enhancements and consumables to prepare for Antorus. It’s going to be super busy once the raid opens and a lot of people will need flasks, food, Enchants and Gems

With the release of Destiny 2 and the Blizzcon Virtual Ticket a glimpse of the past, I took advantage of the fall in price on EU wowtokens too, purchasing another 10 for a total of 2.85m.

With the changes to Cataclysm rare spawn times, I’ve also created another alt, with 650 Tailoring and Jewelcrafting, in an attempt to finally get my hands on either the Rhinestone Sunglasses recipe, or the High Society Top Hat recipe. A guide regarding farming these recipes can be found HERE – Credit: Medapaw.

My total investment for last week totaled 8m gold, leaving me a liquid gold balance of: 78.39m prior to opening my mail today!

Sales

Here’s a selection of my sales for last week within a slideshow. Total Gold earned 12.1m

Here’s a couple of images outlining my totals on my 3 accounts.


Pre-sales liquid gold total: 78.39m
Gold earned this week: 12.1m
Post-sales liquid gold total: 90.5m

Week Two Sales & Catch Up!

Catch up
Many of you would’ve seen on Twitter, that I’ve been heavily investing on all my realms this week! I’m pretty sure a lot of my competition, that I’m normally competing with, have been otherwise engaged, maybe due to BlizzCon, who knows. I’m predicting my profit margins will take a massive hit this weekend. Last week my total liquid gold balance finished at 78.56m gold and before opening my sales today, my total liquid gold was down to 68.8m gold, which means I’ve currently invested 9.76m gold this week!

The markets I’ve been mainly concentrating on are Legion 101 BoEs, Mounts, Toys and Battle Pets. With the conclusion of the event: Hallows End, I’ve been mainly buying up cheap Naxxy’s! I think I’ve managed to purchase approximately 30 at the time of this post. Most of these have been purchased on high pop realms between 55-60k each. My aim is to store these away (unless the market permits me otherwise) and in a couple of Months time, start selling them on all my realms. Naxxy’s are currently hitting the 85-110k mark on some of my low pop servers, but the AH seems saturated with them at the moment. I’ll patiently wait for the competition to go down, then swoop in, when the demand for them picks up!

I have 2 characters I have in mind for a Guild transfer this week, hence why I’ve put a lot of emphasis investing this week. Using The Undermine Journal I’ve managed to purchase a lot of items I know I can flip for a profit on my target realm.

Sales for 06.11.17

Here’s a look at my totals on my 3 accounts for this week: Totalling 84.8m gold.

Before opening my mail, my gold balance was sitting at 68.8m and now it’s back up to 84.8m, meaning I totalled 16m in sales last week. This is my highest return in a week, since becoming a gold maker. Below I’ve added a selection of the sales from the realms I play on.

Highlighted Sales in no particular order:

Claud’s War-Ravaged Boots – 550k
Spectral Tiger Cub – 570k
Mavanah’s Shifting Wristguards – 213k
Fran’s intractable Loop – 365k
Demar’s Band of Amore – 237k

That’s all for this week, be sure to check out next week and see if I can beat the 16m made last week! Thanks for reading!

Week One Sales & Catch Up!

Good evening guys and welcome to my weekly blog; looking back at my sales for the week ending (30.10.17). I hope you enjoy this, and maybe find some ideas for alternative markets to get involved in.

It’s been another great week as a crafty Goblin, managing to hit gold cap again on another alt realm. Sadly… the lack of a Guild bank, meant I spent 2.9m on 10 wowtokens (290k each), so I could loot the remaining gold from my mailbox. These tokens have raised my Blizzard balance back up to cap (£200). I have future plans to transfer some alts to pastures new, so the balance will go to good use.

Here’s a summary of the liquid gold I currently own on my 3 accounts. The 2.9m for tokens has already been subtracted from the total. (Addons used: Altoholic, TSM3)

The grand total is 78.56m, this is an increase of 2m (5m if you include the 2.9m above) since the 16th October, from my last review on Twitter. Below is a collection of my sales from many of the realms I operate on. I hope this format is easier on the eyes, than my previous posts on Twitter. I’d happily agree that 15-20 posts in one day, condensed to one blog post is definitely easier on my eyes!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you can see, my main markets are Legion BoEs and Battle Pets. These are easy markets to get involved in for me. The BoEs are currently in high demand, due to level 101 twinks and Battle Pets offer great versatility, basically because of the ease of transferring them to low populated servers for insane profits.

Please do remember that I play on E.U and Battle Pet prices are far greater in value, than those on U.S. realms.

I also dabble in Transmog and Profession crafts too, but the inability to run cancel scans regular, mean my sales are very low. These can be very profitable markets if you have the time and patience to cancel and re-post often; thus meaning your auctions are always at the top. Take advantage of raid days too, this is when I try and log in on my main and take advantage of those raiders looking for consumables etc.

If you know me well, you know I don’t farm anything anymore, well…  you could suggest I farm the Auction House LOL!! Whatever I sell, you can bet your bottom dollar that it originated from the Auction House. I buy at a maximum of 50% it’s value and aim to sell at a min 105% it’s value. This is just a rule of thumb, so it makes it easier to track my profit. TSM3 accounting is unable to track individual ilvls and different stats on items for Legion BoEs, so this is the quickest alternative for me. I used to have a bog standard spreadsheet covering purchases and sales, but it got too time consuming!

Here’s some highlighted sales, in no particular order:

Eyasu’s Mulligan – 237k
Treia’s Handcrafted Shroud – 237k
Sash of the Unredeemed – 336k
Cyno’s Mantle of Sin – 356k
Talisman of Jaimil Lightheart – 242k
Geta of Tay’Shute – 356k

Some excellent flips, if you follow the rule of thumb explained above.

Before I finish, may I take this opportunity to remind you of the awesome news recently revealed, that TSM4 is on the horizon! If you’ve not used TSM up to this point, don’t threat, there’s no time like the present! Check out this great article on TSM4 HERE and see how you can get early access in late November. Gumdrops, who is a familiar face on woweconomy, is also part of the TSM team. He also streams on Twitch and offers many Q&A TSM streams, so if you’re looking for advice, check him out – he’s an awesome gold-maker too!

Until next week, thanks for reading…

Legion & Sales Update

We’re well into the second month of World of Warcraft‘s LegionLogo_lessglow
new expansion Legion and the early signs on social media and individual press releases, suggest this is the best selling expansion since Cataclysm, as subscriptions soar up to *10.1 million. The fact that the subscriptions haven’t tailed off yet, can only mean, that the advice the community gave developers has well and truly paid off! It might be too early to get too excited, but the signs do look very reassuring and probably prove, that Warcraft isn’t dead after all… Be prepared, as there’s another influx of new players as of today, with the release of Warcraft – The Beginning available on DvD.

On the gold making front, this has been by far the best start to an expansion I’ve experienced. Not only have I been prepared, but I think I’ve taken full advantage of a lot of players, that still hold a lot of gold, from Warlords of Garrisons…lol. I’ve managed to get myself into a lot of different markets too, which has reflected in the gold I’ve made to date. For me, Cooking, Leatherworking and Enchanting have been the best professions so far in this expansion, but an honourable mention to Jewelcrafting and Alchemy, thanks to the resurgence of prospect shuffling and the ability to obliterate. Sadly, the value in obliterating had subsided, but it was excellent whilst it lasted. However, it may make a decent return in 7.1, depending on how the developers manage crafted gear. Early reports suggest that developers are looking into adding another obliterum upgrade, but I very much doubt this will be enough to get the prices back up.

Old World crafts have been a massive profit too, especially within Enchanting & Leatherworking. The amount of Mists of Pandaria crafts I’ve made and sold is incredible. It’s fair to say Transmog has really taken off this expansion, thanks to the new Transmog Wardrobe. As well as MoP crafts, I’ve also made an absolute killing on the Replica market too! I’ve managed to sell on average 7 Replica items per week, which is a massive improvement from pre-Legion sales.

If I have one tip for you, get out and farm! Yes… FARM! There’s so much gold to be made from farming ore and herbs in Legion. Everyone needs materials for crafts, and consumables for raiding and at the beginning of every expansion/patch, materials are in high demand and can fetch a heavy price tag. So if you have a Herbalist or a Miner, go and farm till you hearts content and make an >insert expletive here< amount of gold…lol.

You’ll also notice from my previous blog, that, Ive been in the Legion BoE market too! This has been incredible to say the least! To be honest, I hardly got into this market, at the beginning of WoD, but I’m truly made up, that I took the big step into this market so early this time around. I’ve been doubling my investment on every item I’ve purchased and even started flipping the ilvl 850+. At the beginning of every expansion, there’s a lot of demand for BoE epics, due to the stats and ilvl they offer. This helps make levelling easier and quicker and also helps enter ilvl restricted Dungeons and raids. If you’re looking to level an alt etc, check your Auction House for these items, they’re an excellent addition to your gear if purchased at the right price!

To finish off, I’ve managed to endure the hard task of logging in to all of my alts, to get an update of my Total Gold Earned and I’ve added a couple of screenshots below. Please bare in mind, I play on 2 wow accounts, so added and labelled both. To date, my total gold earned is 58,585,540g

If you’re not aware of the addon Total Gold Earned, it’s an addon that adds all the gold earned from the Auction House on all your characters. This information is made available from your achievements. Simply log into the character you wish, enter /tge in chat to bring up the addon up in-game and it will automatically check your achievements and add your gold earned to the addon. Once you’ve logged in to all of your characters, you’ll have a grand total and voila, that is your total gold earned. Gold obtained via trades, are not included!

Thanks for reading guys and good luck!
