Fortnightly Sales Report (17th June to 1st July)

Fortnightly Sales Report

Fortnightly Sales Report (2nd June – 16th June):

Welcome to my fortnightly Sales Report from the 17th June to 1st July. If this is the first report you’re reading, I hope you can find some value from it, maybe entice you into a new market for gold-making.

I didn’t write this report to boast; it’s more of an opportunity to prove that if I can do it, you can too! Check out what I’ve been selling and incorporate it into your posting routines.

To explain why I only do my reports over a fortnightly time frame, read this post.


TSM Ledger:

If you’re unaware of the TSM Ledger, it is a great tool available from the TSM website. The Ledger collects your purchase and sales data from the app and gives you the freedom to build reports.

If you’ve not used TSM Ledger yet, and you use the TSM app, give the Ledger a try; you can find out some fascinating information about your gold-making.


The Sales Report:

For the third fortnight running [Medallion of the Legion] was top of the sales report. This fortnight, I made 4.05m gold worth of purchases and earned 7.7m gold in sales, which resulted in a profit of 3.7m gold

I managed to sell 188 [Medallion of the Legion] for a total of 889k5 [Reins of the Tamed Bloodfeaster] for 432k6,801 [Darkmoon Daggermaw] for 267k, and another recipe, [Plans: Masterwork Stormhammer], for 237k. A notable mention is the [Blade of Wizardry] that I sold for 177k.

Overall, it’s been another incredible fortnight’s worth of sales, not bad, considering I couldn’t post all my auctions as I went away on 28th June (as shown in the graph below).

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.


Legion BoEs in Shadowlands

You may recall one of my blogs back in 2016/17 regarding flipping Legion BoEs (aka Legion 101 BoEs) and the outrageous profit margins that were achievable. On the first week of the release of Legion, I looted an a level 101, ilvl 850 ring, which I sold for 500k gold. In 2017 I finally surpassed the 100m gold mark, and a great deal of that achievement was down to farming and flipping Legion BoEs

Legion BoEs in Shadowlands:

Even today, during Shadowlands, I’m still successfully flipping Legion BoEs on all the realms I play on. Although the profit margins aren’t as significant as before, there’s still value in the market. In Legion and Battle for Azeroth, the territory stat: Leech (plus socket) was very beneficial and demanded a high value. Later in the expansion of Battle for Azeroth, items with the territory stat: Speed became desirable. The speed stat gave the wearer increased speed, meaning farming old dungeons and raids was more efficient. The more Speed items you had equipped, the greater the benefit. 

Sadly, there is a cap at 49% speed, as illustrated by /AGunWithLegs at Reddit.

Shadowlands introduced a level and ilvl squish (which I’ll cover later), zone scaling, and a secondary stat diminishing return. The stat diminishing return meant stacking a specific secondary stat would start losing a lot of its benefit when you start reaching a certain percentage. The developers introduced this because of the level-boosting in Battle for Azeroth and potential gearing issues when seeking your best in slot item(s). Players were exploiting their stats to help pull the whole instance and AOE the mobs, thus clearing content quickly. A great example of this was the Freehold level boosting! Other limitations included party members no longer gaining experience with characters that lock their experience.

Here’s a detailed guide by Wowhead explaining the secondary stat diminishing returns.


Legion BoEs Shopping List:


Flipping Legion BoEs in Shadowlands:

Buy low, sell high is our aim here. Only invest in the gold you’re willing to lose. Ideally, the price range I’m looking at is 2500g per item, and I look to sell at 10k plus. I will add images later to show the sales I’ve made this fortnight. The images will ultimately prove that this is still a viable/profitable market.

Please bear in mind there have been many changes since Legion, importantly, the level and ilvl squish. The level and ilvl squishes mean that searching for Legion BoEs on the Auction House has become a lot more complicated. When I shopped for Legion BoEs, I previously inputted /101/101/i835/armor, and it would filter all armor for that level/ilvl – that search function is no longer an option. Instead, I prefer to do a default search inputting every piece separated by a semicolon. For ease of use, I’ve added a Pastebin below. Simply open the Auction House, hit the Browse Tab and copy and paste the shopping list in to the search bar in the top right hand side.

Once you’ve completed the search, go to the Recent Searches panel and hit the star to favorite the search. Go into the Favorite Searches panel and edit the name of the search. I named mine Legion BoEs. Feel free to name it what you wish.

You could use a TSM import string and do a shopping search via that method instead, but you could miss out on a lot of items not yet grouped. I have two TSM Strings that maybe of interest to you. One has the Legion BoEs categorised in subgroups, the other is uncategorised (this is ideal for those that prefer their own groups). They both have default operations, so be sure to add your operations. Only choose one of the strings, and be prepared, there’s over 3000 items!

Farming:

If you’d prefer farming for these items, I’d suggest checking out the murlocs in Aszuna [50.33] (screenshot below). I believe this spot hasn’t been nerfed yet, unlike many of the other places I used to farm at. This spot is ideal due to the amount of murlocs in the area. If possible, consider group farming or multiboxing, which will make things a lot more efficient for you. Due to zone scaling, finding a group to farm with should be easier. Otherwise, wait for Legion Invasions. The amount of mobs available is insane and they have large loot tables, so keep your eyes peeled for other loot. If you have other recommendations on where to farm, consider posting below in the comment section.

If you’re farming for a specific level requirement, remember that you need to be a specific level yourself, as the loot will scale depending on your level. Legion BoEs at a particular level/ilvl could demand higher valuations. Even Legion BoEs of the uncommon variety could be of value, especially ones with territory stats and low levels for Twinks. Check this guide out for more information.


Sales:

As mentioned before, I actually repost my expired auction once every two weeks. So my sales could be a lot greater than whats shown below. I don’t cancel/repost so I post and forget. These sales are between 14th Feb – 28th Feb.


Conclussion:

I’ll be honest, at one point, I believed these items were selling based on their stats or possible transmog purposes. But the fact that there’s trinkets and rings selling leads me to think these could be for players leveling. Upon closer examination via in-game TSM Ledger, these items were either level 45 or level 50 with varied ilvls; some had territory stats and/or sockets, meaning that they could’ve been purchased by players leveling or in need of some gear. None of them had Speed or Leech.

I’m unsure at this point, whether there’s a twink bracket that may be farming/using Legion BoEs, given all the scaling in Shadowlands.

It’ll be interesting to see what sales I’ve made when I do my next repost. I’ll be sure to add them here as soon as possible.


Feedback:

Have you been selling Legion BoEs yourself during Shadowlands? How has the market been for you? Have any farming tips that you want to add? or maybe this post has potentially opened another market for you and you might give it a go. If so, keep me updated on how you fair, by sharing your progress in the comment section. If you have any questions, maybe something I’ve not outlined in this post, please feel free to ask below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. I’m approachable on Twitter or via email using the contact me feature.


Until next time…
