    Cataclysm Best Selling Cata Items (thus far)

    Hello everyone,

    I haven't seen many posts lately, mostly because Cata is here and everyone is in game a lot more. However, I wanted to make a post and see what everyone is making, what's most profittable, and if you're positive or negative.

    First off, I'd like to list what is selling well for me.

    [Ebonsteel Belt Buckle]These are selling faster than I can make them. Mats are roughly 350g~ to craft and selling for 850 easily.
    [Darkmoon Card of Destruction]I have sold 3 decks so far, for a total of 200k and I have 40 cards left to sell. I expect once they sell I'll have made 400k total from these cards.
    [Pyrium Weapon Chain]Since they removed EVERY talent that takes away disarm and improves the time you're disarmed, these are now required for melee PvPers. Only make 30-40g profit per sale, but that's still good as I can move them ASAP.
    [Bloodied Pyrium Legguards]The Bloodied Pyrium and Bloodied Leather gear is going for a huge profit margin atm. Pyrium costs me around 300-500g to make and selling for 800g-2k per. The bloodied leather is doing even better, costing around 400g to make, and selling above 1k everytime
    [Inferno Ruby]If you have an alchemist, start xmuting these. Mats are roughly 100g to xmute on my server, and these are selling for 160g consistently.
    [Silver Inlaid Leaf]This and the Notched Jawbone are selling very well for Scribes to make a profit.

    That's what I'm selling for now, what about you guys? I feel like I'm not selling enough, so I'm going to start searching for markets again.

    As a total, I started out with 340k on launch day, spent 140k by Thursday, spiked up to 400k, then started buying epics and making more cards. In total, I have 260k atm with 7 epic items I've bought off the AH (each for at least 20k, I have a trinket that I bought for 60k), 40 cards to sell, and a crap ton of bloodied gear.

    Once I sell the cards and the gear, I'll be above 400k with 7 new epics, bunch of mats stockpile, etc. So in the end, I came out positive! How about you guys? Did you handle the Xpac correctly and spend your gold in the right areas of investment?

    Those all seem like they have great opportunity. For me personally, I have went the supply route with herbs and ores. I maxed out mining and herbalism (on my alt) the first day and have been selling Eternium and Twilight Jasmine for great profit. Usual earnings is averaging about 10k per day. I have yet to get into the crafing process but will do so quickly since I'm nearing 85 now.

    Belt Buckle sales should pick up even more. Up until yesterday, the WotLK belt buckles were working on new gear, but that's been fixed.

    I'm new to the gold-making game, having picked it up as something to pass the time during the pre-Cata lull, but I've made almost 30,000g during the first week while simultaneously leveling my DK to 85 and running heroics + Tol Barad with my guild daily. My druid supergatherer is currently 82 on nothing but mining/herbing xp, and I've maxed out my jewelcrafter and alchemist.

    How I've made money this week:
    3x Truegold bars for 3k apiece.
    3x Etched Demonseye and 3x Glinting Demonseye for 400-500 each.
    Sold at least 10 Chaotic Skyflare Diamonds for 150g apiece just within the last day. I tried this on a lark and it has really paid off. Right now I'm the only one on the server listing them.
    Typically move about 30 or 40 glyphs a day in the 30g-50g range. I'm not listing glyphs that are below 30g.
    Sold a number of stacks of obsidium ore for as much as 500g/stack.
    Sold a lot of elementium for 200g/stack before they nerfed the twilight highlands node spawns. In hindsight of course I wish I'd have held onto this until the price spiked back up after the nerf...but what can ya do?
    Sold a number of stacks of herbs for as much as 400g/stack.
    Sold savage leather for as much as 700g/stack (WTF?)
    Prospected/sold some uncommon gems for as much as 200g apiece.
    Flipped a few random items.

    Pretty much everything Cata is selling. I'm placing all sorts of profession leveling junk up and people are paying stupid prices. Relics that require TH materials are also going well, because full time campers are buying the mat but not making the relics. I snag them in the mornings before work when they're not on so I approve of their tactics... fools.

    I am desperately trying to get my blacksmithing up to participate in the buckle market. 1000g+ over here, and guildies are complaining all day about having to part with that much gold. This is the largest redistribution of gold I've ever heard of, because I know all this overpriced junk is selling.

    My main is dual-gathering, and is involved in a dedicated 10-man progression raid group, so I decided to spend the first week grinding him up and selling off his gathered materials. Launch week was a perfect storm for gatherers. Obsidium Ore sold for 400g/stack on launch day, down to 250g/stack now. Elementium was 90g/stack before people realized they needed it, now it's up to 200g/stack. Cheaper herbs run 80-90g per stack, TJ and Whiptail often run 175-200g/stack. Also, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the spawn rate of herbs and ores was significantly increased in high-population areas. I sat my main in the mercurial pool in Deepholm on Wednesday afternoon for two hours, while Cinderbloom spawned literally faster than I could gather it. I sold some, and milled the rest down into ink. I now have a good five stacks of ink on my Scribe, ready to level up my Inscription when the urge strikes.

    My main is 85 and I've easily made 25k from gathering on the way up. I had about 10 minutes before work today, so I portaled out to Twilight Highlands and did a lap. I came back with a stack of Elementium, about 30 units of Twilight Jasmine, a handful of Cinderbloom, 10 Volatile Life, and a green gem. Best guess, maybe 600-650g worth of materials in 10 minutes? Almost 4k/hour just from gathering? I'll take that. I'll level up my own JC and Scribe when the cost of goods goes down... they're alts, and I don't really want to plunge 10,000 worth of materials into leveling tradeskills on a character that won't regularly be repping, doing dungeons, or finding non-vendor patterns. Right now, I'm just farming and selling, farming and selling. It's a good racket

    First post here, been lurking a while.

    Ore. On my server the new ore has been selling better than drugs at a high school. First day I logged on, went straight to hyjal and got my skill up and went straight to highlands. I was one of two people in highlands for a good few hours, all of the ore was mine (although I did not get server first mining). Every few stacks I would log out and post the ore on the AH via mobile ah app for droid; this saved time as I didn't have to fly back and fourth. My first 10-15 stacks of elementium ore sold for 900g/stack. Volatiles were a few hundred each at first, but dropped quickly. There was an usual amount of pyrite nodes and I managed to mine up about 10 stacks of it, although it there wasn't a market for it on day 1.

    Currently the prices of elementium is around 170g/stack, which still isn't bad for how easy it is to gather.

    I followed the exact same plan as you. I was the first person on the server to list Cinderbloom, Twilight Jasmine, Obsidium Ore, Elementium Ore, and Pyrite Ore, and NONE of it sold.

    I managed to get 500g for a couple of stacks of Obsidium eventually, but I don't think I ever got more than 300-400g for Elementium.

    I'm finding that being the first person to list something on the AH just means you will be the first one to be undercut and not sell anything >_< at least on my server.
