    Flipping expensive epics

    I am seeing a lot of stuff being offered in trade for 5-7k

    Things like and

    Now I think that I could resell that for 12k + if i held it till Friday or Saturday night. But it would cost me roughly 1/5th of my gold to buy one item...

    Thoughts?

    I'd be careful of the Stormshield. It only costs 1 to make and there's only 2 or 3 things that a BS can make with 1 Orb - so the mentality is make SOMETHING now that I finally hit 525, shield sounds good. Not saying its a bad idea but you'll face steady competition.

    Fade is right, go, flip the cloak. There's way less risk in that.

    I bought the tailoring DPS belt for 5k, sold it for 10 in 24 hours.

    Cloak is a bad flip - there is a tank cloak from Hyjal rep which is probaly the easiest to quest close to exalted. Just my 2 cents.

    If you want to flip level 85 epics, I would look at the epics available from World Drops and trash drops in Bastion of Twilight. Don't try mess with crafted goods because they are far more riskier. Most top guilds have their guild crafters craft all their raiders the stuff they need. But they need to go to the public for the world drops.

    This - and you should think about keeping an eye on both Auction Houses for rare epic world drops.
