    Question @300K What next?

    Hello,

    I broke 300k Liquid this morning and I'm wanting to see if there is anything I can add to my routine to make the next 700k to cap

    At the moment I am basically flipping Trade Goods exclusively. I have around 1K Auctions up at any time.

    I have access to Enchanter, Insciption, JC and Miner all 525 no other trade skills.

    I have a boatload of Blackfallow and Inferno Inks and just got some Volatile Life today so I think I will move into the Darkmoon cards just as a way to get rid of some of my stock.

    I also have 2 Guild Bank tabs full of Rare (blue) gems from the shuffle.

    Where to next?

    • Darkmoon cards but the profit is small (or negative)
    • Epic Armor/Weapons but it is volatile and risky
    • Stick with what I'm doing/no change
    • Anything other suggestions? I'm open

    If your aiming for cap and only have 4 markets currently. Level the rest and hit every market. Risky or slow or not, its another avenue for you to gain gold.

    EDIT: Stockpile a little for 4.1 if you aren't already and be ready to cover a boom in volotiles at the very least

    * cut and sell gems
    * make bars with your miner and tip a blacksmith to make belt buckles
    * I would do glyphs over cards, but that's just me
    * Get an Alchemist leveled and set up; start doing living elements xmutes
    * sell scrolls: Heartsong, Hurricane, Mighty Stats, heirloom enchants.
    * MFCs

    You can also look into making and selling buff food and vendor items

    Disenchant things, sell mats. Especially with Greater Eternal Essences, Large Brilliant Shards, etc.

    With that much gold, you need to do a few things:

    - Diversify into more markets
    - Work in large volumes
    - Increase your profession use

    The details have already been stated....you'll make it!

    Well you can either diversify your markets, or increase your involvement in them.

    For example with Glyphs, I'm usually pretty lazy in them and only tend to restock glyphs once a week and repost 1-2 times a day. But if I recently spent a bit of gold and want to get back to where I was or something, I will restock on glyphs maybe every second day and repost 3-4 times a day. That's a way of getting more involved in the glyph market.

    By diversifying you can either try to enter new markets such as alchemy, or you can increase the range of your current market. For example if you are in the enchant scrolls market, you might want to expand by making the effort to get some of the rarer recipes from pre-bc/tbc rep vendors and dungeons.

    Try and liquidate all that stock you have - you would be surprised how much gold you can make from just doing some spring cleaning. Especially if those are materials that you gather on a regular basis and have slowly built up. Do a purge every month or so to keep things fresh and get over those humps.

    I have a question for you - how do you flip mats - just buy low and sell higher?

    I have a similar amount of money and thinking what to do. I mostly do JC with the shuffle, some enchanting and selling LW goods. Just picked up tailoring instead of skinning, so will have a tailor soon - now up to 300 from first day of leveling.

    If you have a reliable database of scan data, it's as easy as buying everything under a certain value (ie. 80%) and then listing them back at ~100% of market value. Since mats are usually in high demand and sell quickly, you usually don't even need to be the cheapest to move your product.

    As a few have mentioned the first thing anyone should be looking at is always to diversify into new markets so the option to just carry on as normal should never be a consideration. The more pies you have your fingers in the better your profits will be as you will have more choice, more sales and more flexibility.

    As for what you can expand into, using the professions you have mentioned, you didn't mention selling glyphs which i would certainly look at, especially if the DMC market is a bit threadbare. That will reduce your blackfallow supply but to move your inferno's you could try the simple option of selling them as are or try a more risky route of dabbling in the relic market.
    If you do consider relics don't be put off immediately if the market looks poor as relics are used by almost everyone to level up inscription so you often see people offloading their leveling stock but if you can find times in between people selling their leveling goods you can often turn a nice profit on relics. This is certainly a market for the patient though but as you now have a decent stockpile of gold you can afford to sit on items a lot more to get the best price rather than feeling a great pressure to sell immediately.

    For the DMC market specifically have you actually looked at it closely or just generally as the DMC is generally tanked but with some patience and creativity there are still large profits to be made.e.g. posting traded decks(actual trinkets) in the week or 2 after the faire has been can turn a nice profit over selling cards in general or even the decks. Again this is becoming a market of patience.
    Another thing to note with the DMC is your playing with averages so just because certain cards may be negative your looking at the overall figure so you should look at the average rather than individual sales to see if the market is profitable.

    As your already doing the shuffle, are you actually trying to sell your rares in a great way or even at all? If not then that could be a great source of income from you, for a start i would probably do a semi fire sale on many of your rare simply to get rid of most of your stock and then once your stocks are at a more reasonable level you can start to look at raising your prices to cherry pick the best sales more.

    I may be stating the obvious here but as you didn't elaborate too much i will it mention anyway, are you simply selling dust from the shuffle or are you making scrolls?
    Scrolls are another market which can look unattractive from a glance as many scrolls are below cost value but there are plenty of scrolls out there which can be profitable and i would venture to say this market it going to open up a lot more after the patch with cheaper materials all around which will give many of the unprofitable scrolls a chance to become profitable and drive down the price of many of the expensive scrolls which means people will be more likely to buy them which will increase the size of the market.

    Epic armour/weapons can be a lucrative business and even if you don't have a way to craft them yourself, gathering the mats and paying tips for crafts then selling them on the AH can lead to large profits. As you said this can be risky and is also again a market of patience sometimes but it is often worth it. My main concern at the moment would be the incoming patch which may remove the desirability of certain items so unless you feel you can sell something before it hits i would probably wait until after then to start expanding and dabbling in this market so you will have a better idea of how things are going to turn out for whatever you invest in.

    As i said i have based this on your existing professions but an obvious way to expand is to level alts and gain access to more professions.
