The Replica Transmog Market
Some of my readers will be familiar with the Replica Transmog market, but others may not. Today I will show you why I continue to invest and sell Replica Transmog and the potential gold returns you can get with some knowledge of the best Replica Transmog pieces/sets and valuing them.
What is Replica Transmog?
Replica Transmog is transmog pieces you can purchase from Baruma on Darkmoon Island during the Darkmoon Faire. They replicate the armor pieces that were available from Dungeons during Vanilla World of Warcraft. Check out my Replica Transmog guide for an in-depth guide on Replica Transmog!
Baruma’s Replica Transmog Sets:
- The Five Thunders
Barum also sells Replica Transmog pieces, but these are less desired. These do not sell very well!
When purchasing your pieces, ignore the bracers; these have no visual benefit when applying Transmog. Remember, selling Replica Transmog in the Auction House is similar to regular Transmog. It’s a slow niche market, but the vast range of items you post, the greater your chance of gaining a sale.
Buy cheap Replica Transmog from the Auction House if you’re confident you can flip it. I do this to complete sets! Don’t pay anything more than 15k! This option also helps reset a market too!
The main consideration is your realm. Always check your Auction House on your realm to gather information on potential competition within the Replica Transmog Market.
If there’s too much competition, and the value isn’t there, don’t get involved!
How to Access The Darkmoon Faire?
The Darkmoon Faire is a World Event and is only accessible for one week, from the first Sunday of each month. Be sure to have completed all your chores before Saturday at 23:59, when the Darkmoon Faire disappears!
Why is Replica Transmog Profitable?
Replica Transmog is so profitable on the Auction House because of the restraints on accessing the Darkmoon Island and the maximum amount of Darkmoon Prize Tokens you can earn monthly from one character.
If you have many alts, you can exceed the character limitations by completing tasks on all your alts and purchasing the Replica Transmog pieces you’re missing to complete your set. More importantly, most players can’t be bothered with farming the Darkmoon Prize Tokens needed to purchase the Replica Transmog; this is why there’s a market on the Auction House!
I Have My Tokens; Now What?
Ideally, you want to purchase sets, as you’ll be surprised how many players purchase complete sets. Remember, no need to buy the bracers!
Also, consider checking the Auction House for gaps in the market. Maybe someone has posted an incomplete set, and they’re missing the legs; purchase them from Baruma and post them to the Auction House.
Valuing You Replica Transmog:
Now comes the important part. Now you’ve got your Replica Transmog, it’s imperative that we value it wisely so we’re ahead of our competition, and when we get a sale, it’s worthwhile!
I tend to price my Replica Transmog at;
- Minimum: 40,000g
- Normal: 75,000g
- Maximum: 100,000g
Ideally, don’t post more than two pieces of any one item; this prevents flooding the market! I will consider dropping my value further in realms with a lot of competition (High Pop realms). Adjust your valuations according to your realm!
Importantly, these values are average valuations, and it’s in your interest to value your pieces accordingly; after all, this blog post (as a whole) is the purpose of a guide.
The Oribos Exchange:
If you’d prefer a better understanding of the value of your Replica Transmog piece(s), check out the Oribos Exchange. This website can offer you the current value of your piece(s) by Region or via your Realm!
Furthermore, make use of the snapshots and the heatmaps! These graphs can give you insightful information regarding your piece(s) value and the competition in your realm!
My Recent Sales:
Here are some of my Replica Transmog sales for September. Please consider that I have a 2-week reposting schedule, so I’ve reposted these auctions twice to gain a sale. You could earn better results if you post auctions more frequently!
Also, check out my Replica Transmog sales section, where I cataloged many sales throughout my time. I’d also like to draw your attention to Twitter and the option to search my Transmog sales via the #ReplicaTransmog hashtag.
Don’t forget to follow me on my social media platforms, where I post regular updates regarding gold-making in World of Warcraft.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding something I’ve not covered above, feel free to comment below, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. I know that this is a topic I’ve covered many times, but I wanted to reaffirm how good this market is for those that are unsure!
