Many people within World of Warcraft will not be familliar with this strategy, but Ive been using it to my advantage for as long as I can remember and I have amassed atleast 45% of my gold balance from doing it. Now this is pretty limited, as you can only get the items during the the Darkmoon Faire.
Now, I can hear you asking, what is this big secret? well… it’s the opportunity to purchase Replica transmog items, from the vendor Baruma for a measly amount of Darkmoon Prize Tickets. The important part of this strategy, is to buy Darkmoon Quest Items, which Ive listed below this paragraph for you, once these are turned in, you will get a small amount of gold or experience (depending on your level) and more importantly the Darkmoon prize tickets. Do this on all your alts too, like I do. Remember, the tickets are BoP, but once you’ve bought your Replica transmog items, they’re BoE and tradable.
Darkmoon Quest Items:
Fallen Adventurer’s Journal
Banner of the Fallen
A Treatise on Strategy
TSM import string:
You can buy each of the quest items from the Auction House for as little as 10g and as much as 500g for the higher demand items, you may even prefer to farm them. If this is the case, check the links out on the items above and see where they drop from. Personally, I buy them off the Auction House about 2 weeks before the Darkmoon Faire comes, as they maybe cheaper, than when it’s in Town. It’s a small amount of gold compared to what you’ll make on the Replica transmog items you sell. Dont forget to do the daily’s in the area too, whether it’s profession daily’s or the game daily’s for extra tickets, every little helps…
Quest – Silas’ Secret Stash:
As well as the Darkmoon Quest items above, you can also complete a quest called Silas’ Secret Stash. This can only be completed once on any one character and doesn’t reset! This quest costs 100 Darkmoon Daggermaw and you can buy this quest from the vendor Galissa Sundew at co-ords [52.88]. Once you have started the quest, you’ll notice that you’ve been given a set of clues and some treasure to find.
I’ve added a video below, from a very good streamer called oldbess. He does many awesome videos, helping his viewers make gold in Warcraft. Be sure to leave some feedback and a like if you found his video on this quest helpful.
The Replica Gear:
Instead of posting links for every Replica item available, I will instead link every Replica set, you can go through the page to see the individual items. You will also notice the item it’s replicating.
Vestments of the Devout
Vestments of the Virtuous
The Five Thunders
Battlegear of Heroism
Battlegear of Valor
I have made a Replica Transmog Import String for TSM which you can find HERE.
If you’re confident that you can get these items cheaper on the Auction House, feel free to purchase them to flip. I can sell Replica gear between 20-30k at the moment, so I’m happy to buy at 10k to guarantee a healthy flip.
Each item within each set will be worth considerably more than another, this is where you’ll have the task to check your Auction House and see what the prices are and then purchase the best item that will maximise your profit. Below are a couple of screenshots I took today showing what sales you could make, by investing in a small amount of gold and a little time.
You can find further images of my Replica Transmog sales HERE or simply check out my Facebook page or Twitter feed for recent sales.
I hope you found this post interesting, please do post questions if you have any, but more importantly, please feel free to share your sales too…
Thanks for reading!
