    Took a break. Now I don't know what to sell.

    I'm on the US Horde Kil'Jaeden realm. I took a break from WoW for a couple weeks, then came back and I haven't sold anything yet. So I basically have been out of gold making for a month.

    These are the professions I have maxed.

    Leatherworking
    JC
    Enchanting
    Alchemy

    I also have enough windwool to max Tailoring, and I can level Blacksmithing easy as well as Inscription. What should I do to start making gold again. I currently have 35k.

    My main has both LWing and JCing, with the recipes from factions.

    Main way to get some gold as a fresh seller is Shuffle.
    Invest some of your gold into ores, prospect them. As an alchemist (get transmute master) make meta gems, cut them, sell them. Try to cut some rare gems, craft rings/necks and sell them. Some uncommon gems can be cutted, and sold as perfect gems (non-perfect -> vendor). Some of uncommon can be also used to craft 85 lvl rings and necks, then disenchanted.

    Alchemy -> daily cooldown (with transmuter) is profitable enough for an alt.
    Lw -> craft 90lvl pvp gear and legs enchants.
    Enchanting -> daily Sha Crystal cooldown, some enchants on vellums (dont ignore twinks enchants market!)
    Jc -> Shuffle described above.

    Good luck

    I made a lot of money over the past couple of months with potions and flasks. However, this is a high volume, low profit market, and I've been pulling out of it in favor of items that sell slower, but at a higher margin. I plan to sell potions and flasks again when the next raid tier drops. My suggestion to you would be to go to wowuction.com, and take a look at the advice it has for your professions.

    That's what I have been doing. Except the lv90 pvp gear. I haven't had any sell.

    I can also recommend you 80-85 MoP blue items market. Is funny, how much gold it can provide (for 1/2 months over 200k pure profit in my case, just a pleasure).
    Some great people have already described this here -> Flipping MoP 80-85 Blues - A Guide to an exciting new market

    To be fair, you've given us very little to work with (beyond the professions you have access to). You said you left at one point, but were you in any markets before? You said you've not sold anything, which is almost impossible to do, but what have you invested in and failed on?

    Personally, I would work around your professions before getting into flipping a bunch of items. Flipping can have great profit margins but learning the prices of those items, on your server, can take some learning. I know I've personally have been building a panda blue flipping list slowly over the past few months. It applies to my faction on my server.

    As far as your professions, get pretty intimate with the going rate of the mats that fund the popular items. For leatherworking, you should know the going rates of exotic leather, prismatic scales and magnificent hides. Your JC'er should know the going rates of the dust/shards. From that point, you can start to look at the patterns you have and if you have potential profits. Also by knowing the prices of the raw mats, you can buy up great deals and make your crafts cheaper. This will also allow you to drive up the crafting cost for your competition (they will have to farm themselves or buy mats at a higher price).

    It's hard to give specifics because it's hard to judge your markets at a distance. You do have to feel and try markets out yourself. You said you lost 20k gold but also look at that as information/knowledge you have gained. Learn from your mistakes.

    I used to be in only doing the shuffle before my break.

    Over the last month I have done the shuffle. 30k in mats bought, lucky if I make 3k in profit. Even lost 2k on one shuffle.

    Someone suggested making DMF cards. 10k lost to mats to make the cards. None of the cards, or decks have sold.

    I can never know the prices of things on my realm they change so quickly. A week ago I was getting ready to sell the BOE blue jewelry from the shuffle. I checked the price on them, 100+. Crafted them, went to post them, almost all were under 45g. Within 10 mins. Enchanting materials. I post up before I go to bed, Essences for instance, 25g. Wake up, none of them sold, and the essences are down to 10g.

    Also, I don't dare try to flip anything.

    Flipping MOP blues is easy, quick and extremely profitable.

    I have tried flipping before, and the stuff has always sold for less then what I bought it for.
