Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales Report 05.05.21

Fortnightly Gold-Making Sales

Today’s blog post reviews the gold-making sales for the fortnight ending 5th May. The eagle-eyed readers amongst you will automatically notice a discrepancy in the dates. The discrepancy is because I’ve decided to include the data from 14th April to 5th May in a bid to get back up to date on my fortnightly sales reports.


Reason for the delay:

I’ve taken the difficult decision to reduce the number of accounts I have active, from eight to five accounts. My decision was based on the increasing valuation of the European WoW Token (233,829g), the inability to multi-box as I did before Blizzard’s multi-boxing policy changes, and Blizzard’s recent purchase changes for game time, from 30 days to 60 days

In addition, with the three accounts having 20 days left on their game time, I needed to act quickly to get the gold, guilds, and level 50 players transferred to other accounts and prevent the need to purchase 60 day game time. 

These transfers took precedence over my gold-making, and the posting times that generally take two weeks to complete increased to more than three weeks. Today these transfers have been completed, and I can finally post today’s fortnightly sales review. Again, I apologize for the delays.


Purchased WoW Tokens:

The WoW Tokens purchased to complete these transfers are not included in the sales reports, as the TSM Ledger doesn’t track these purchases. So my outgoings for this fortnightly review are significantly higher than shown in the image below via the TSM Ledger. I thought I’d make that clear in a bid to offer complete transparency.


Fortnightly Review (14th April – 3rd May)

Although the dates shown are greater than two weeks, rest assured, these sales are based on one fortnightly reset as explained here.

I earned 4,446m in sales and spent 6,696m meaning I recorded a loss of 2,249m. As explained above, with characters transferring to new accounts, I invested heavily to help alleviate these WoW Token costs in the future. Simply put, by checking The Undermine Journal (TuJ) and comparing items between my current realm to my destination realm, and purchasing items that are profitable, I stand to make the cost of my WoW Tokens back at a later date!

TSM Ledger Sales Report for 05.05.21

I managed to sell 67 Medallion of the Legion for a total of 314k gold, and there was a massive spike in Nomi Snacks sold; I sold 185 for 211k gold. The sale(s) of the fortnight went to two items, the Hard Khorium Battlefists, which sold for 193k gold (a reminder of the gold you can make from crafting), and the recipe Enchant Gloves – Fishing for 172k gold.

For a comprehensive review of the items I sold, check out the next portion of this blog post titled My Sales.


My Sales:

Island Expedition Transmog:

A few high ticket items sold this fortnight. Notably another Stinkrot Smasher, a Plundered Flamecaster Stave, and a Plundered Petrified Tree.

Legion BoEs:

A good fortnight of sales on the Legion BoEs front. I even managed to sell two relics (Law of Strength & Ettin Bone Fragment) and an Athrog’s Dethhamma.

Legion BoE sales


Crafted Uncanny & Dreadful Gear:

Another poor showing with the Uncanny crafts. As pointed out in my previous fortnightly review, if sales didn’t improve, this may be a result of a competitor. Extremely likely that I may need to adjust my settings.

Uncanny Craft sales


Recipes:

I made some decent Recipe sales, but it’s difficult to look past the Enchant Gloves – Fishing sale. 172k is an excellent return!

Sold Recipes within World of Warcraft


Replica Transmog:

I didn’t do too well this fortnight, this could be a result of increased competition in this market. I will see if there’s any improvement in the next fortnightly sales report, before taking any action. However, three sales for 210k+ is a great return on investment!

Replica Transmog sales


Battle Pets:

This fortnight saw another impressive return on Battle Pet sales. This is a great market to be involved in. Battle Pets are extremely versatile, if they don’t sell on one realm, cage them and move them to another realm.

Selected Sales:

Some cracking sales this month. As mentioned already, Nomi Snacks did well, sold some more mounts, and there appears to be no letup on the Medallion of the Legion sales. Without a doubt, the sale of the Hard Khorium Battlefists for 193k was the highlight. A further reminder, not to neglect your professions, there’s gold to be made!

Conclusion:

It’s been a very busy fortnight, it took almost 3 weeks to complete my Auction House posting, and it’s great to see I still made a decent return. Yes, I made a loss, but I made some great investments, which means I will make a profit in the long run.

I love to continuously reinvest my gold, after all, there’s no point in it sitting there doing nothing, it’s not like it gains interest sitting in the bank! If you’re looking for ideas on where to invest your gold, look at my sales above, check The Undermine Journal and see what you can incorporate from my results and guides, and implement them into your own routines.

I can’t stress this enough; if you have more time than me, to post, cancel, and repost your auctions, you have a greater chance of being as successful as me. My limitations prevent me from posting more frequently, but this gives others the opportunity to make sales too. So do what I do, and make the most of your time in-game!

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:

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:

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 – 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.
