    Best Items to Cross Faction Trade?

    Recently I've been looking into doing some arbitrage on my realm, and while I've looked at multiple blog/forum posts, I'm just wondering what other items I am missing.

    Currently I'm running a spreadsheet that is pulling specific prices from TUJ to determine which side I should buy them on as well as how much I will make and then can filter based on different criterias.. Any item suggestions would really help. ^^

    Here's what I currently have...

    Item
    Volatile Air
    Volatile Earth
    Volatile Fire
    Volatile Water
    Volatile Life

    Obsidium Ore
    Elementium Ore
    Pyrite Ore

    Enchanted Lantern
    Magic Lamp

    Embersilk Cloth

    Hypnotic Dust
    Heavenly Shard
    Maelstrom Crystal
    Greater Celestial Essence
    Large Brilliant Shard

    Tirisfal Batling
    Durotar Scorpion
    Mulgore Hatchling
    Sen'jin Fetish
    Enchanted Broom

    Teldrassil Sproutling
    Dun Morogh Cub
    Elwynn Lamb
    Mechanopeep
    Ammen Vale Lashling

    Book of Glyph Mastery

    Blood Elf Bandit Mask

    There are tons of recipes also that are faction specific which do nicely on opposite sides although thats not my forte and I won't try and list them here.

    I personally am very similar to what you do but I also sell crafted items on both factions, Double the speed that I can move product . Belt Buckles, Gems, enchants, you name it it gets moved.

    Technically speaking, if you find a market for an item of great worth missing on one side, you could make the same amount of you would trading those items for a week, for me its gotta be they sell for 20k on one side while the other is used to seeing them between 30-40k which is insane.

    Thanks for the tips so far guys.

    I've done a bit of selling recipies as well as pets, but I didn't think it would be worth the time to all of them onto my list.

    If you are cross faction trading then the vial of the sands is well worth considering. The goblin racial discount,especially if combined with the lv 25 guild perk discount means horde can craft this item for about 8k cheaper than alliance can. So you can actually advertise it for "1k less than mats cost, need gold asap!" and then still make a very sneaky 7000g profit on it

    SHH!! dont let this one get out lol. I actually am transferring 6 of these over from my old horde server to my new alliance server. Safest way to move the gold imo when I can sell em cheaper then they can buy em if needed.

    After the masive drop in prices on & can be crafted for less then 1k on most servers. I have been selling like crazy cross faction. Since launch of 4.1 i have profited around 20.000G on this item alone.

    I think most people investering around 40K in to know about the Goblin discount. I have sold some of these on Ally side, buy sales are slow. I had 2 up at 39.500 for a Week on the Ah at lowest, without a sale. Not a fast seller, but nice profit when they do sell.

    You could add cata herbs as well. I've been buying them for roughly half price on one side.

    Gems, tailoring bags, enchanting rods, cloth, pets, recipes, darkmoon cards/decks and ore atm. Business is going way slower on horde side at our server though, Im making just about enough gold on horde side to buy out all those cheap ores the bots are posting. I keep missing those cheap stacks of ore on ally side, as someone else is always a little bit faster of buying them all

    Do this. Being able to sell to and buy from a larger market is the main benefit of cross faction arbitrage.

    Aside from my main crafting markets, I have made quite a bit of gold trading the Argent Crusade Pets back and forth.

    Here is the list and thread that Sterling posted:

    I used this and other information to make Auctionator cross faction lists.
