    Tailoring Discussion

    Last new thread. Just trying to get some discussion going on each profession

    I currently don't have a Tailor but I plan to level it as soon as possible for Cataclysm, I'd love to see some ideas on how people make gold and a Discussion on the profession.

    I'd also like to link to Moravec's recent blog post which made me want a Tailor for now, instead of waiting until Cataclysm - How to Turn 1000g into 2000g Tailoring Edition
    I used to run a blog called Just Another Goblin

    I quit for 7 months, now I'm back. Hi...

    One of my main market is tailoring, especially leg enchants. I found that both epic and rare leg enchants sell very well, but it's a common knowledge.
    In the past few months i sold tons of Brilliant Spellthread , fortunately i managed to blackball some competitors out of the market so this market is not too risky for me nowadays. I gave a try to the other leg enchant:Sapphire Spellthread. Well i can tell you, it was a good idea to spend some money to stockpiling its materials. On my server, the sapphire spellthread generally more expensive than the other one. An other part of tailoring are the rare leg enchants. I always craft some Azure Spellthread, becouse some player looking for cheaper and not too lower items that their epic variant.

    On the screen you can see my solds of Brill. Spellth. in the past month ( i think). There was a hardware problem with my computer, and my Win7 did BSODs randomly and every BSOD wiped my logs.


    These items will be sold after Cataclysm too, till the first maxed tailors flood the market with their improved threads.

    Another part of tailoring are the bags.

    Well i don't like selling bags, cuz of one of my biggest competitor in the tailoring market. We have an agreement:
    I won't sell bags, and he won't drive me crazy with his spellthreads. I think it was a good deal, cuz the mats cost is about 100g / both Brilliant and Sapphire spellthreads.
    But if you can sell Netherweave bags about 12+ g each, its a good option for you too. As i said i don't do the bags market i can't tell you the details.

    You can earn some coins from the RPers out there with the tuxedo and haliscan sets.
    My opinion about this: Too much effort, less profit.

    When cata hits, i bet there will be craftable "early epics" as we had Wispcloak and Deathchil Cloak in WotLK. I'm sure i will craft some new cata epics to see how they sell. I read somewhere that starter PVP sets(like Frostsavage set now) will worth much more with the changes what the new expansion brings to us. However i'm not in the beta ( /cry) so i can't confirm this info.
    At least i think i heard somewhere that there will be a new tailoring mount, but i don't remember correctly so this one is totally unreliable, read this as a side note.


    So. I would give a try and pick up tailoring if i was you. Your mostly sold items will be the spellthreads, Netherweave bags to the new bankers and to the new Worgen/Goblin players. Perfectionists will buy loads of the new craftable 24 slot bags in Cataclysm. Think about it at least 10+ bags/player at horribly high rate in the early weeks of Cata.


    My servers stats:

    BRILLIANT SPELLTHREAD - sold for 160g-200g. Mats: 4 Eternal Life, 4 Iceweb Spider Silk and 1 Frozen orb
    SAPPHIRE SPELLTHREAD - sold for 170g-300g Mats: 4 Eternal Fire, 4 Iceweb Spider Silk and 1 Frozen orb
    AZURE SPELLTHREAD - sold for about 50g Mats: 2 Crystallized Fire 2 Iceweb Spider Silk

    Netherweave bags are about 9g
    The craftable "early epics" sold 900+ (later 400+, 200+ and so) in the first few months of WotLK.


    Always do a search for Frozen orbs. Every frozen orb cost below eternals cost is worth.

    If you are a person like me, who generally buy the mats through the AH but love to spend some hours with farming in a week, a good tip for you is keep an eye on WG. When we own WG, i like to go there and farm the lashers and fire elementals focusing on Mature Lashers and Flame Revenants. Kill all of them, relog to do something else till respawn, relog back and kill them again. Loads of crystallized life and fire. And when i say loads i mean LOADS!


    So this was my hard builded tailoring overview just for you

    Thanks so much for the guide. I NEED to sell spellthread for the rest of this expansion. I had been selling off icewebs I bought for 2g50 each for 7g a piece but I guess there's a use for them now. Actually I remember why I bought them originally, a friend of mine who was a Tailor was crafting for me but he left the game for a while. Think he recently came back so I can get into this

    I've tried selling bags as well, the profession bags sold every so often and the time taken on Nweave ****ed me off so I didn't bother.

    Also thanks for the WG farming spot idea I'm definitely going to pick up Tailoring for the start of Cata, its basically the only Profession that I do not have at the moment.

    Once again, thanks for the guide. It was amazingly informative.

    Selling bags can be VERY profitable if the conditions are right on your server. For instance, bags sell for 12g on average on the horde side of my server, but only about 6g on alliance. Mats cost is about the same on most servers(approx. 4.5g/bag). So it's pretty obvious which scenario would be ideal. On a side note, mats are just a little cheaper on the alliance side(on my server), so I usually buy them over there. This also requires large amounts of AFK crafting time. So it is best to queue up 50-60 bags each night when you are done playing, and let your game log itself out.

    While this is not something you want to base your entire business around, it would be a shame to ignore it completely. But only if the conditions are right on your server(check both sides)!!

    I sell NW Bags, Rich Purple Silk Shirts, Epic iLvl 245 Chest and Bracers, Specialty Bags and Bolts for more than the cost of the required cloth.

    Only 300 or so at the moment (I HATE leveling characters, and have no open profession slots -.-), but one item that can actually sell quite well is the Mooncloth bag.

    Not many know of this, but due to it having the same amount of slots as the NW bags, only slightly more expensive mats (on my server), and not being BoE (underlined for importance) makes them some quite good sellers to altoholics, as long as you make sure to advertise it. (something along the lines of "Tired of having to buy a new set of Netherweave bags for every alt? Then buy Mooncloth bags, not soulbound so can be used again and again!" usually works wonders)

    What is a good way to go about getting the Epic spellthread patterns on my tailor if he is not lvl 80? Is this even possible?

    You need exalted Argent Crusade for Brilliant and Exalted Dalaran for Sapphire, which though probably not technically impossible, does limit you somewhat if you are not 80

    My Sales is out of date and no longer maintained, anyone suggested a new addon that tracks sales? I have searched high and low! I am not interested in Bean counter, as that would entail me clicking and dragging over 600 current items to see stats. I hope there is something similar to My Sales...

    Not sure why you posted in this thread..... but TSM has the accounting module that tracks sales, and purchases, and resales. The only thing it doesn't track yet is sales of battle pets (but I don't think any addon does)
