    My gameplan. Or, what the hell am i doing wrong?

    Hello Consortium!

    I've been an avid gold maker in wow, and I've recently came back (left around the time MoP hit. Big mistake i know).

    I tried my hand at a few things, but in general im pretty scared with the state things are, and how little money im being able to make. I was hoping to get some pointers in the right direction (as well as a "green light" of sorts on what i had planned).


    What I have:

    86 Rogue - Enchanting 600/Engineering 525
    85 Paladin - Inscription 600/Jewelcrafting 600 (still missing plenty glyphs and rare cuts)
    84 Priest - Alchemy 600/Tailoring 525
    75 Death Knight - Leatherworking 525/Blacksmithing 525

    What I have been doing:

    Glyphs - Just make 3 of every that gives me more than 20g profit, leave them for 24h and repost when needed.
    Enchants - Trying to make these, finding that most of the mats TSM asks for have been highly inflated (still havent gotten around to actually crafting what i have though)

    The Shuffle - Ah yes. The shuffle. The thing that has me stumped. With the shuffle i managed to see how ridiculous things are. Rare cuts selling for less than the uncut uncommon. ilvl450 jewelry that doesn't move. Perfect cuts selling for more (or less) than their rare counterparts.
    So far i've prospected around 250 stacks of GIO, only be left with either stock that doesn't sell, or mats that won't cover my costs (even making primal diamonds is turning out to be a loss.


    What I need to have:

    All characters at 90 as well as the other professions at 600. Rep with factions to get the missing recipes.

    What I should be doing:

    This is where I hope you could give me a hand. What other markets am I overlooking? What other things can I do with the shuffle?


    Thank you for all the replies, and keep being an awesome community!

    Hi

    Some ideas:
    Cross faction trading
    resetting some markets or just some specific items when prices are very low
    maybe transmogg market!?

    What are you buying ghost iron ore at?
    Also I love your DK has lw and bs..so you can really pace out the motes of harmony for pvp recipes...I did not do that. So I have no pvp leather recipes.

    Depending on your server, this has been my biggest money maker...Anything that doesn't move on horde side? Move it over to alliance and sell it for 2x the profits. On thrall the alliance side is pretty dead but as long as you're patient you can usually sell something for the price you want to sell it for. There is a lot less competition too, I only have to repost 2-3 times a day instead of 5-10.

    Hmm, i guess i could try resetting some markets... Gems in particular could be quite nice to do so, all i need is to check the cuts top ten sale

    Thanks for the tip!

    Max at 36g/stack
    And it was really a coincidence honestly... Had him since Cata, and those 2 were the ones i was missing :P

    One thing to bear in mind with the update from Cata to MoP is how much gating exists in the game now and how un-alt friendly the game has become.

    If you can adapt, you can be very profitable, but it's fairly clear MoP has changed the game somewhat and the alt 'army' of old might not yield as consistent turn over as previous xpacs.

    Cannot agree. Im starting to make decent gold on Alchemy Transmutes (With transmutation spec). How?

    Buying cheap ores (120 x ~1,5 is 180-200g) -> Bars -> Trillium Bars (PROCS!) -> Living Steel (PROCS!).
    For the cost of around 200g, I create item worth 400-500g. What is better, I can get up to 5 L.Steel in one cd.
    Calculation time. Im aiming for 6 Alchemists on my main account, all with Transmute Spec.

    200g x 6 is 1200. 400/500 x 6 is 2400/3000. Its 1200/1800 (up to few k's) of pure profit every day. 1400/1800x30 is?
    42k / 52k per month.
    In realistic scenario, you will net around 100k per month (or even more), because of l. steel procs. Add trillium procs (cheaper steels) -> MORE PROFIT!

    Now tell me, how long are you playing MoP, and do a quick math

    @Edit
    Another profession, with daily Cd -> Inscription. Still possible to make decent gold, just for a few minutes with a few clicks every day.

    As it stands, many servers have seen the shuffle markets dry up. Too much early supply coupled with low demand (is it just me or are there less sockets in the blue items this expansion?) caused a flood of cut gems that weren't worth jack.

    For your options, I would start by looking at the crafted 450 tanking or PvP sets. These sets generally sell well because they're a quick 450 item for fresh 90's looking to boost ilvl quickly from leveling. I know the cloth sets have cratered in price, but the blacksmithing and leatherworking sets generally sell very well. The caveat? You need to have SoH to buy the plans, so you would have to get at least one character to 90 for efficient SoH generation.

    Since you have leatherworking and tailoring, check out the leg armor and spellthread markets. Leatherworking is cheap this expansion, and if your server is like mine, you can turn a spellthread and a couple leg armors for 1k a day profit.

    Search daily for items to flip in the AH. Negotiate with people in trade, get better prices for the items, then send them to another alt to re-list higher.

    Other people have mentioned transmog, but I advise you to be very careful before getting deep into that. Most fresh mog sellers make the early mistake of buying every green item prices under 20g and listing it for hundreds or thousands, and they end up eating multiple hundred gold per day in AH fees while barely selling a thousand gold worth of items. Learn your market!

    Another sect of items to look into are the "must have" items. People leveling, especially after 80, need better gear and weapons. I personally do very well with gear that fills the 77-83 gap until people start equipping 384 greens from MoP. My personal favorite is to farm BRC for which I can sell for 800-1k per dagger. A full run only takes me about 10 minutes and I also generate lots of greens and cloth, plus shards.

    Enchants aren't the only profit option for an enchanter. On many servers, sells for 20-50g *each*, making them extremely profitable to farm in BRS/BRD. Price them well and they FLY out of the AH.

    I have to point that part. 250 stacks is 5000 ore. Actually, Im prospecting 1000-2000 stacks for 2/3 weeks. In that time, Im able to sell every product which I receive from shuffle, and earn fantastic profit. I have been inspired by THIS thread on mmo-champion. Guy posting there is showing what you could sell, and how to do it. By using this informations you can make a good start in a BIG shuffle. Good luck

    I don't want to quote everyone, but @Arleqin : Thank you for the tips. I forgot about the Living Steel transmute, and i'll add it to my list now! And that thread turned out really helpful. Thanks!

    @Silound : I had forgotten there were uncommon leg enchants... I still need to level up my DK (LW/BS) to 90 for the epic ones, but i'll definitely start making the ones i can! And about the flipping, i have been doing that more often. Managed to get a Miniature Winterveil Tree for 10k and sold it for 14k the next morning!
