Replica Transmog Market

First off, may I take this opportunity to wish all my readers a Happy New Year! Here’s hoping wherever you are that 2021 is a prosperous and safe one IRL and in-game for us all. Today’s blog post is my first gold-making post since an impromptu break due to IRL issues. As the Darkmoon Faire is in town this week, I felt it was beneficial to post this today for you all.

Today I’ll discuss the benefits of completing quests and other objectives to earn Darkmoon Tickets. Once we’ve obtained enough Darkmoon Tickets, we can consider purchasing Replica Transmog. Alternatively, buying Companion Pets if you don’t meet the level requirements to purchase Replica Transmog.


Earning Darkmoon Tickets:

According to the Wowhead Guide by Gamermoosh (Darkmoon Faire Made Easy), you can obtain 286 Darkmoon Tickets per Month if you complete every task (including the daily tasks). If you’ve not completed Silas’ Secret Stash quest, then you can earn an extra 100 Darkmoon TicketsRemember, you can only complete this quest once!

While this guide is currently outdated it’s still in my opinion the best guide on Wowhead regarding the Darkmoon Faire. Please do follow the link and add some feedback if it helped you too. I’m sure the author will update his guide soon.


Darkmoon Artifacts:

The easiest method to obtain Darkmoon Tickets is earning Darkmoon Artifacts by completing content while carrying a Darkmoon Adventurer’s Guide in your inventory. Alternatively you can purchase the Artifacts from the Auction House. Because I don’t do a great deal of content myself, I struggle to earn my Artifacts, so I opt to buy them from the Auction House. These can vary between 100g to 1500g per Artifact depending on when you look to purchase them. Ideally, purchase them a few weeks before the Darkmoon Faire comes to town!

What Replica Transmog to Purchase?

I’ve always used TheUndermineJournal and would still recommend it to others. Access the site and input your region and realm. In the search bar, add the term, Replica. This search will return you a list of all the Replica items on your realm with their; 

  • Availability 
  • Current Price 
  • Mean Price 
  • Last seen 

On my realm, the current Price is between 30k to 40k per piece. Remember to consider that each realm has its own valuation; this is why it’s imperative to correctly input your region and realm.

Here’s a graph from TheUnderminJournal illustrating the differing valuations per realm for the Replica Beastmaster’s Cap. 17.5k the cheapest and


Resetting Replica Transmog:

On some occasions, you will find some realms sell Replica Transmog for as little as 5k to 15k each. If someone has earned those Artifacts or completed the events and obtained their Darkmoon Tickets without any gold invested, 5k may be sufficient for them. If you feel that you can reset the market and get better value for the piece(s), it’s worth considering. 

Always check the availability column for the piece on TheUndermineJournal. If you feel that 5k is a reasonable valuation for your item, feel free to post it at that price point too. I’ve purchased items as high as 15k myself and successfully flipped it between 40k-75k. Only do this if you’re confident you can make that profit margin.


Alternative to purchasing Replica Trasnsmog:

As mentioned at the beginning of my post, if you do not meet the level requirements to purchase Replica Transmog, please consider purchasing Companion Pets from Lhara. These have no level requirements, and once learned and caged, you can sell these at the Auction House

Darkmoon Tonk and Darkmoon Zeppelin are the best valued Pets on my realm at approximately 15k each at level 1. I’ve added a complete list of Companion Pets below for you to consider before purchasing.


My Recent Replica Transmog Sales:

Here’s an image outlining my Replica Transmog sales since the release of Shadowlands on 23.11.2020. The profit margin is great, but the amount of sales are lower than usual, but this could be due to the new expansion. I expect these to start picking up, as people get more time to work on the Auction House.


Conclusion:

As you can see, there’s definitely value in selling Replica Transmog. You have to remember that Transmog at the best of times is a slow market and this is no different, but when you get that sale it’s worth while. The only benefit to this market, is due to the restriction to the amount of Darkmoon Tickets any one player can earn per reset as mentioned earlier in this post. You could regard this as a soft cap of Replica Transmog that will become available each reset. Obviously, this cap can be extended if a gold-maker in this market has a considerable amount of alts, this will then bypass that soft cap.

If you want to participate in this market, attempt to get one of each piece, this will improve your chances of a sale. The vast size of your inventory the greater chance you’ll have an item of interest to a potential customer – resulting in a sale. It’s also imperative that you value your pieces appropriately, use TheUndermineJournal to work out the best price for your region and realm. I’m the only seller on my realm, hence why I can demand 40k-50k per piece.


Feedback:

I love the Replica Transmog market, and the significant profit margins it can bring. Are you in the market already? Maybe you’re apprehensive and undecided on whether to get involved. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line below, and I’ll get back to you at the earliest convenience. On the other hand, If you’ve been successful in this market, feel free to share your success stories below.

Thanks for reading, guys, and again I wish you all a very Happy and prosperous New Year! Here’s to a better 2021 – finger crossed!

Influx of Darkmoon Faire Quest Items

Hello guys, long time no see.

I just wanted to create a quick post today regarding a previous blog post The Darkmoon Faire Revisited. Basically because of the recent influx of Darkmoon Faire Quest Items due to the increased content brought to us by Battle for Azeroth or soon, Shadowlands.

Due to the increased content, PvP, Dungeons, Questing and the impending pre-patch and, a lot of returning players, it’s never been easier to obtain the quest items. If you have your  Darkmoon Adventurer’s Guide in your inventory, you have a chance to loot a Darkmoon Quest item. Because of this, the Auction House is flooded with items, which has dramatically decreased the value for these items.

High competition + increased supply = market crash

So please ignore the previous prices I was advising. I will edit those prices in that blog post immediately but wanted to clarify here first, why the need to change them. If you did follow those prices, then don’t be disheartened, as you can still turn those in and make gold from other markets.

You can buy up Darkmoon Faire Quest Items from the Auction House for approximately 100g-500g each (dependant of your realm’s economy) although this is lower than initially outlined, there’s still plenty of profit to be made! Buying up quest items, turn in, and buy Replica gear is still the best method. I’m selling gear at around the 40-75k mark EACH on many of my realms. There are even players barking in trade chat, selling full sets for crazy amounts of gold!

When you consider it costs me on average 1k-2.5k to buy all the Darkmoon Faire Quest Items you can easily turn all these into huge profits! This is hugely beneficial to do on ALTS too!

Please bear in mind, that SOME quest items do have level requirements to hand in successfully and you must be level 60 to purchase Replica Transmog.

So although the buying/flipping market for Darkmoon Faire Quest Items may be ruined (at the moment), there’s still plenty of room in other markets. Check out your realms economy/market via TheUndermineJournal and see if there’s value for you too!

Just a couple of Replica Transmog sales since the release of Battle for Azeroth, to offer you some confidence in this market! You can also enter #Replica #Transmog within the search bar on Twitter to see some of my sales, I’ve shared prior to the release of Battle for Azeroth!
