The Darkmoon Faire (06.11.22)

The Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire:

This weekend sees the long-awaited return of the Darkmoon Faire and plenty of gold-making potential with it. This is an excellent opportunity to make gold, but we can passively earn a couple of levels of experience with little to no effort too!

Furthermore, it will also be the last Darkmoon Faire of Shadowlands, so make sure you benefit from the Winds of Wisdom buff, WoW 18th Anniversary Buff, and the Whee! buff for some excellent experience gains!

Check out my Darkmoon Faire guide, or continue reading.

The Darkmoon Faire 06.03.2022

The Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire:

For those of you that may have missed it, the Darkmoon Faire is back in town today for one week! Now is the time to turn in those acquired Darkmoon Artifacts for Darkmoon Prize Tickets and purchase lucrative items to sell on the Auction House.

Check out my comprehensive Darkmoon Faire Guide.


What to Buy:

I prefer to spend my Darkmoon Prize Tickets on Replica Transmog. The pieces cost either 50 or 75 Darkmoon Prize Tickets each. These pieces (dependent on your realm) can net me between 40-75k gold each.

Like most Transmog, this is a slow market; you must be patient.

Remember, don’t waste your Darkmoon Prize Tickets on the bracers!

Alternatively, check out the Companion Pets from (Lhara). The Companion Pets will cost you 90 Darkmoon Prize Tickets each but are only worth approximately 10-15k each on the Auction House.


Darkmoon Firewater:

With Zereth Mortis accessible now, it’s beneficial to obtain Darkmoon Firewater this week! By using the firewater, you can gather resources quicker. The price of  Darkmoon Firewater on the Auction House has already doubled in value!


Professions:

If you’re still trying to acquire the last few points of your professions (ideally if you’re 5 points short), this is an excellent opportunity to help max your profession

You’ll receive 5 points towards your profession by completing a straightforward quest. 

Please remember to obtain any materials needed for your quests before making your way to Darkmoon Isle, as there are no vendors on the island that will sell them.


Fishing:

If you enjoy fishing in World of Warcraft, it can be lucrative to fish along the coastline of Darkmoon Isle, especially the Shipwreck Debris which you can fish a Sealed Darkmoon Crate. Fishing here will net you (intended pun) Darkmoon Daggermaw and Darkmoon Firewater.

The Darkmoon Daggermaw is a currency for Companion PetsRecipes, and a Mount from Gallisa Sundew. But, you can also post these on the Auction House. Again, the value of the fish will depend on your realm. 

You could fetch between 15-50g each.


The Whee! Buff:

If you have no interest in the Darkmoon Faire, remember to obtain the Whee! buff, which will grant you a 10% increase to experience and reputation gains; this should be ideal for gaining Enlightened rep from the new Patch 9.2 – Eternity’s End.

Remember, the buff only lasts for one hour, so you will need to revisit the faire when the buff expires.


Darkmoon Faire Guide:

Update:

I’ve still not played any of the content from patch 9.2, and not likely to be for a while. However, I’m still making gains on the gold-making front via my fortnightly posting routine.

Today (06.03.22), I’m currently sitting at 122 million gold.

My current gold-making markets consist of Old World craftsMaterialsBattle Pets, and Transmog. Due to time restraints, I cannot and will not venture within the new markets of Patch 9.2.

The Darkmoon Faire Is Back In Town!

The Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire:

Today (Sunday 5th December) sees the return of the Darkmoon Faire, a World Event that rolls up on the first Sunday of each month outside Stormwind and Thunder Bluff. There are many activities you can participate in, in a bid to earn Darkmoon Tokens for fabulous prizes!

For a detailed guide on the Darkmoon Faire, click the link here for more information!


The Whee and WoW’s Anniversary Buff:

As some of you may know, tomorrow (Monday 6th December) at 10 am, we’ll see WoW’s Seventeenth Anniversary come to an end. Until then, I urge anyone leveling any characters to visit the Darkmoon Faire, take a ride on the Carrousel, and obtain the Whee! buff. The buff will give you a 10% increase in Experience and Reputation gains. This buff will last for one hour!

Now, if you Include the Anniversary buff, of 17%, you stand to gain a total of 27% gain on Experience and Reputation.

Remember, the Whee! buff only lasts for one hour, so this will need to be refreshed hourly. The percentage of experience can be increased further if your character is well-rested!


Handing in Darkmoon Artifacts:

If you’re fortunate to have read this blog post, and you still have time to take advantage of both buffs mentioned above. Now is a better time than any to hand in your Darkmoon Artifacts. These can only be handed in once per month, per character!

With both buffs active and handing in all 9 Artifacts, I managed to get 55% into level 50!

Click the link here for more information regarding Darkmoon Artifacts.


Profession Dailies:

Although these are regarded as dailies (due to the blue exclamation mark), they can’t be completed daily; instead, these can be completed once per monthly reset, the same as Darkmoon Artifacts.

If you’re five levels away from maximizing your profession, these Profession dailies are an excellent method to reaching that goal.


Obtaining Replica Transmog:

On many of the realms, I play the Auction House on, the biggest sales are concerning Replica Transmog. These items are obtained initially through the Darkmoon Faire by acquiring Darkmoon Faire Tickets fulfilling many of the activities on offer.

These pieces can sell upwards of 40k per piece. Ideally, the pieces that cost 75 Darkmoon Tickets will sell higher, as these are harder to obtain.

For a detailed explanation on obtaining Replica Transmog, click the link.


Quest – Silas’ Secret Stash:

Silas’ Secret Stash is a great quest to complete if you haven’t done so already. This quest can only be completed once, so be sure to check if you’ve completed it already. Copy and paste the script (added below) in the chatbox for confirmation. You will get either a True or False response.

/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(38934))

True = Completed
False = Not Completed

If you’ve not completed this quest yet, please check out my guide here for a full explanation!


Reminder:

You have until Saturday 11th December at 23:59; then the Darkmoon Faire will leave. Be sure to have handed in all your quests, purchased/acquired all your prizes, as the Darkmoon Faire doesn’t return until Sunday 2nd January 2022!

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).

Fortnightly Sales Report (2nd June to 16th June 21)

Fortnightly Sales Report

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

Welcome to my fortnightly Sales Report from 2nd June to 16th June. This report is a couple of days early; this is because we have arranged to go on a week-long family holiday from 28th June. So if you’re reading this post today, I hope you can find some value from it, maybe entice you into a new market for gold-making.

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


TSM Ledger:

If this is your first look at my sales reports, and 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:

This fortnight, I made 3.3m gold worth of purchases and earned 6.5m gold in sales, which resulted in a profit of 3.2m gold. [Medallion of the Legion] is still selling extremely well. I managed to sell 90 for a total of 433k.

I also managed to sell the recipe [Recipe: Greater Arcane Protection Potion] for 237k. Unfortunately, thanks to the sudden changes to unobtainable recipes in Shadowlands 9.1, now becoming obtainable once more, these recipes will begin to start losing value. For more information regarding these changes, read this post.

Overall, it’s been an incredible fortnight worth of recipe sales, proving that there’s much interest in this market. If you’d like to get involved in this market, consider checking out my guides here.

Fortnightly Sales Report (19 May to 1 June 21)

Fortnightly Sales Report

May 19th to June 1st Fortnightly Sales Report:

Welcome to my fortnightly sales report for May 19th to June 1st. As mentioned in a previous blog, I’ve decided to delay my sales reports by a few weeks to guarantee all data recorded as accurately as possible. Previously, I was missing purchase and sales data, which meant sales reports previous to this one, were flawed.


Changes:

You will notice that as of today, I will no longer use screenshots from my in-game mailbox. Due to different graphical settings with addons, the aspect ratios differed between other clients, which meant cropping sales data looked unprofessional. Instead, I will look at adding selected sales from my TSM Ledger.


TSM Ledger:

If this is your first look at my sales reports, and 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:

This fortnight, I made 4m gold worth of purchases and earned 6.9m gold in sales, which resulted in a profit of 2.9m gold. Medallion of the Legion is still selling extremely well. I managed to sell 126 for a total of 545k. Surprisingly, I sold four level 25 TCG Battle Pets for a total of 1.4m gold.

Island Expedition Transmog:

One of the most profitable markets in Shadowlands, check out my guides on flipping Island Expedition Transmog.

Legion BoEs:

Legion BoEs are still proving to be a very profitable market, and it doesn’t look like settling down as we approach Shadowlands 9.1. Check out my Legion BoEs guide here.

Legion BoEs Sales


Recipes:

I’ve been making some steady gold with BoE Recipes, including Vendor Recipes. Check out my new guide here.

Recipe Sales


Replica Transmog:

Although my stock has decreased significantly, I’m still selling Replica Transmog. If you’re not getting involved, you’re missing out! Check out my guide here to get started!

Crafted Uncanny & Gladiator Transmog:

Although BFA and MoP are a distant expansion, Crafted Uncanny & Crafted Gladiator Transmog are still selling well. In addition, some of the materials needed are really cheap, so consider getting involved.

Mounts:

A selection of BoE Mounts sold throughout this fortnight.

Transmog:

The Transmog market is a slow, prolonged market, but it’s still worthwhile for a steady income. Pictures below are some Transmog items I’ve purchased from a vendor.

The Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire:

This Saturday, 4th June at midnight, sees the return of the Darkmoon Faire to Azeroth. The Darkmoon Faire has some excellent opportunities to get involved with if you enjoy gold-making. Darkmoon Artifacts, Replica Transmog, Darkmoon Companions, Fishing, and farming Darkmoon Rares are a few of the things on offer to you. But, remember, The Darkmoon Faire is only in town for a week, so make good use of your time!


Darkmoon Artifacts:

Darkmoon Artifacts are an essential commodity. These are quest starters that reward Darkmoon Prize Tickets and experience (or gold if you’re at max level). You can turn these Artifacts in once per Darkmoon Faire per character – so don’t forget those alts!

Mid-way throughout the month, when the Darkmoon Faire is out of town, these are posted very cheaply on the Auction House. So this is a great time to purchase these and store them ready for the Faire’s return. If you can’t turn anymore in, consider flipping them on the Auction House for other players.

Check out my blog post on Darkmoon Artifacts here.


Replica Transmog:

The Replica Transmog market is something I post about frequently. These pieces can demand a high price on the Auction House. To purchase these items, you’ll need to acquire Darkmoon Prize Tickets. The easiest method to obtain these is by handing in Darkmoon Artifacts, which I’ve mentioned above.

Remember, Replica pieces have a level requirement you must meet to successfully purchase them from the vendor.

Don’t forget to complete the daily quests at stools scattered on the Island. Completing one of these rewards one Darkmoon Prize Ticket, but you can complete these once per day.

Here’s my blog post regarding Replica Transmog.


Darkmoon Companion Pets:

If Replica Transmog isn’t of interest to you, then maybe some of the companion pets are. These will set you back 90 Darkmoon Prize Tickets each and, if leveled to 25, can earn you approximately 10-15k each on the Auction House, realm dependant. Check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for prices on your realm!

Unsure what Companion Pets to buy, check my blog post here.


Sila’s Secret Stash:

One of the best ways to obtain Darkmoon Tickets is completing the quest Silas’ Secret Stash. This quest can only be completed once on any one character. Check out my post below for more information regarding Silas’ Secret Stash.

Silas’ Secret Stash


Fishing (Darkmoon Daggermaw):

Darkmoon Daggermaw is a fish you can catch along the shores of Darkmoon Isle. You’ll need to be on the lookout for Shipwreck Debris. You have a chance to successfully cast between 1-2 times, catching a Sealed Darkmoon Crate each time. Simply open the crate to loot Darkmoon Daggermaw and other potentially useful items.

I have success in selling Darkmoon Daggermaw between 25-50g each, depending on the realm. These are useful for the one-time quest Silas’ Secret Stash, a commodity for purchasing items from the vendor Galissa Sundew and a reagent for cooking. Check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) to see where the best value is for your Darkmoon Daggermaw.

My blog post regarding Darkmoon Daggermaw.


Farming Darkmoon Rares:

There are two rares on Darkmoon Isle, the Darkmoon Rabbit, and Moonfang. They both drop a companion pet, a Darkmoon Rabbit and a Moon Moon, respectively.

The Darkmoon Rabbit is worth between 25-30k, but if learned and leveled to 25, you could demand upwards of 40-50k. Moon Moon is worth approximately 15k, but if you learn it and level it to 25, you could demand about 30-35k.

Always check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for a comprehensive valuation for your item on your realm!


Don’t Neglect Your Professions:

The Darkmoon Faire also has profession quests. Although these have a blue quest marker, these are not dailies; instead, these can only be completed once per Darkmoon Faire visit. However, it would be best not to ignore these because they give you five skill points towards your profession

These quests are ideal if you’re five points away from maxing your profession!


In Other News:

This week, I also completed my BoE Recipe groups. This project took me over seven days to complete and has information on every BoE recipe you can buy and sell on the Auction House. If you’ve ever considered getting involved within the BoE Recipe market, then check out my blog post here. It covers every profession and vendor BoE recipe.

I have created TSM groups that may be of interest to you, these do not have operations, and you can make changes however you wish. Be sure to backup your TSM Profile before importing.

If this is of interest to you, check out my blog post here.
