Thread: A starters log

    A starters log

    Hey all,

    I just started trying to make some gold again and decided to go ahead and post a log to see my own progress and letting others see it as well. (Also for a feeling of Nostalgia. "Oh I remember when I hit that milestone!") As well as hopefully give people who are just poking around/reading some sort of an incentive to start themselves.

    So far I'm starting by just mildly playing the AH on both factions with 1k to start off with on two level 70 toons with no professions. This is with me starting 2 days in.

    (getting 2 85's ready on both factions who both will have 10k each with mining/skinning and herb/skinning for a later date)

    Alliance:
    Day 1) 1000g
    Day 3) 1747g - Decided to try a guide to scout Ironforge/Outlands for recipes and selling them on the AH. Also picked up a lot of random cloth for 20c-4g a stack. Mageweave isn't selling.


    Horde:
    Day 1) 1000g
    Day 3) 1303g - Scouting the AH for cheap, small things to flip. (no epics, mostly cloth) Got 44 Netherweave Bags for about 2-3g a piece via trade. Flipping on the auction house for 20-30g. Also got 20 stacks of Runecloth for 2-6c a stack. Flipped em for 4-5g each.



    Wish me luck, I haven't really touched the ah or farming since BC and a little in Wrath.

    Good idea man, keeping a log of your progress is definitely the way to go.

    How is the Ironforge and Outlands Limited Supply item route treating you so far?

    Well, I'm gonna check today. I always skip patch day to just relax/have all the major bugs ironed out.

    But as you can see above, it did me 1000 -> 1747 via only that.

    I didn't notice any professions listed - are you not using any right now?

    No I'm not, at the moment I'm purely playing the auction house.

    Unfortunately it's May, which is my busiest month of the year with AP tests, finals, state tests, final projects, and more.

    And also, my laptop was stolen recently which carried 3 months of work on it of which I must redo. So I'll still be playing it here and there but I won't be as active as I was hoping to be, so this won't be updated as much until all of this blows over. Currently, however, I believe I have 2kg on my Ally toon and 3700+ on my Horde toon.

    I like this idea, I wish I had kept up with my progress at the end of wrath. I suppose I could start when I break 100k?

    Cool. In that case, I would look at some of the other profession mats for flipping. They can be a good way to get yourself off the ground since they will move pretty quickly. Gotta keep that liquid moving, right?

    Well, I will be started professions on both sides on two toons.

    However, I'm being held tight again with work driving me on designing a poster and tests next week. (Plus my wallet was stolen, wew!)

    However, I have still been playing the Horde auction house (the dead one on my server) to the best of my ability (alliance is here and there). Can't log in today, but I did come across a load of cheap glyphs that should sell for a min profit of 18-180g a piece.
