    Taking Advantage of those trying for Realm 1st's

    Hey guys!

    First time poster but have been lurking awhile now. Thanks for all the great info provided.

    I don't think it has been yet discussed but with the new patch we are getting alot of new quests. Most will mosey through the quests but from the start alot will be racing for realm first. It is this goal, that will drive alot of people to try and aquire the items as fast as possible..... BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!! ( Evil smirk entered here. ) So I will be focusing on alot of the quest items needed for completion of certain quests. These items I feel could catch some pretty hefty prices and since they are new quests not sure there will be much competition.

    Now, what items will be needed. I have briefly looked through the new quest additions on wowhead each day and can find alot of them already listed. I will hopefully compile a list of these by the weekend and be able to post them.

    This could be a pretty niche market to fetch alot of gold to start, and then just continue to trickle in later throughout the expansion.

    What are your guys' thoughts and advice on finding these items other than wowhead if any. Do you think this is even something to take advantage of, or will most just quest out there own items.(prolly very quest specific)

    Thanks guys and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Awesome idea, but I can't remember Cata having many quests that required item turn ins that where not aquired by questing. I'm not in beta and haven't done research really tho', so I'm not sure how this turns out for Pandaland! I'm looking forward to your list, and I like the idea!

    I think the best bet is going to be farming the higher level ore/herbs. On cata day 1, I power leveled my mining as soon as servers were up and flew straight to twilight highlands and started farming elementium ore. I missed realm first 525 mining by minutes. I spent a better part of day 1 cata mining ore. It was selling for 999g/stack initially, slowly dropped down in price as others got their miners out to TH.

    I don't remember exactly how much I made in those first few days off ore, but it was somewhere around 50k, on a medium pop server then.

    The difference with MoP of course is the lack of flying in the new zones at first. This is where beta access is going to come in handy to see just how soon you can have your char efficiently farming these mats.

    To add to all of this, it would be wise to have WoW Remote. Rather than hearthing, listing, flying back to farm, you can simply just log out, wait 60 seconds, list everything from your phone, wait 60 sec, log in and continue right where you left off.

    I think I made over 200k the first few days in Cata selling all kinds of 'new' items, just buying/selling/crafting stuff, no farming what so ever. I thought farming was more profitable the first few days then 50k.

    I wasn't completely focused on gold making at the time. I was partially pre-occupied with RL friends and leveling/pvping.

    I took a quick look at Pandaclysm quests currently available at Wowhead (http://mop.wowhead.com/quests?filter...35;crs=5;crv=0) and I didn't manage to spot any quest that requires items from older expansion. Would you mind to point out at least one of them?

    From the current quests listed there are no old xpac items to be used with new quests for those leveling to 90. I have found a few so far that require new items and will be good to save when picked up while questing. As far as prep for pre xpac not finding any at the moment.

    The other way to go is to sell from another toon. Then you just have to get to a mailbox.

    A "Quest Item" can not be traded. They don't show up as bind on pickup, but they are programed as such to not be traded. Unless you've tested this in beta, I wouldn't invest time and energy into this endeavor.
    Items disenchanted: 241,000+
    Materials produced from disenchanting: 576,000+

    I was thinking along the lines of the overcharged capacitor from WOTLK or the Nethergarde bitter from BC. I can't think of anything like that in Cata.. Any word on if they are implementing something like that?
