  • Post at MMO-Champion: Check It Out!

    Last week I wrote a pretty thorough guide on AH entrepreneurship for the MMO Champion community. The idea was to introduce players to the entrepreneurial aspect of the game, and possibly convert some of them to evil goblinism. So far, response from the MMO Champion community has been resoundingly positive - I might have to write a follow up!

    For now, the article is exclusive to their forum, but you'll find it here once the thread runs its course. You can check out the article in question here, and be sure to leave a comment!

    Oh, I almost forgot, the obligatory snatch list items!

    Today's snatch list items could net you some occasional deals:
    • @ 1000g
    • @ 2000g
    • @ 600g

    Did you know these can be salvaged off Ulduar bosses by engineers? You'll rarely see them at the AH, as most engineers know their value. Occasionally, they will be mistaken for regular engineering parts such as and posted for cheap. I like to snatch these near vendor price, since I'm crafting motorcycles anyway.

    Sterling beaming out!

      This must have happened in 4.0? Regardless, the parts should remain on your snatch list!

      This is from the super secret snatch list. Would be nice to maybe see the whole thing after you have redacted it so I can say to my self... doh why didn't I think of that one.

      Wow, so much for TUJ being a competitive advantage any more.

      I liked one of the posts immediately following:

      "Cool guide but I think I'll stick to farming mats for gold. "

      You can teach a man to fish but you can't force him to actually do it...

      Ah well, I guess this means that there will always be profit oppertunities out there.

      That's because it doesn't require thought. They don't have to be bothered with research. Just go out, fly around, kill some stuff, make some money. I know we've said it before, but the AH is a different part of the game. There's PVE, PVP and AH. Perhaps more.

      This is very similar to how real life works, in case you were unaware.

      Why don't most people own their own business and stop working for someone else? When you're self employed, you take all the risk. There's no steady paychecks, you pay double tax in most cases, you have to worry about things like benefits, house cleaning, costs, bank loans, accounting, competitors opening up shop across the street, and lagging sales. Those that do it right tend to make several hundred thousand dollars a year and give jobs to those people that are against taking the risk. Trust me, I see the tax returns and bank statements on a daily basis.

      Those that choose to work for someone else have to put in the time for their money. 40+ hour work-weeks, having to settle for what their labor is worth in the form of a salary or hourly wage, and complain every day about this, that, and the other thing. "Hey, don't like it? Open up your own business." And they'll respond with - "I can't take that risk, I have (insert responsibility) to worry about."

      Does anything here seem relative to what you're doing in WoW right now? Like my boy Zig used to preach - from the neck down you're worth minimum wage, from the neck up your opportunity is unlimited.

      I detest manual labor. I have a Grade A education from a top-tier university. I studied hard to make sure that I never had to pick up a shovel unless it was to do some gardening at my house. Some people you just won't reach, and like my dad used to always say, "The world needs ditch diggers, too." Being in labor, like real life, sucks.

      It was nice of you to write an article for MMO-Champion, but you're preaching capitalism to people that are looking for a steady paycheck but aren't willing to take the risk. Therefore, they will always choose to work for people like me and I hope they continue!

      This entire post is spot on.

      What you say about MMO Champion's community is true, but there is nonetheless a small fraction of their users who would fit in here (these are the users I'm targeting). Gold-making encompasses a very wide range of topics, including farming and professions. If I can find even 1 user from MMO Champion that has something of use to say, writing the article was worth my time.

      Ever since gold blogging became popular years ago, there has been fear that "everyone" will be using the same tricks we use, and that making good gold will become impossible. Here we are, years later, making a killing. No matter what, there will always be the capitalists and the laborers. No amount of preaching will change this.

      Glad you liked it.

      I have no fear of people copying me, just like I laughed at Boub for posting his "gold making tips" last year. Sure, it made a few competitors. But on my server the only real competition I saw was from the people that were connected to the people I shared some secrets with. I shared my "give-away" secrets with about a dozen people, and only 2-3 people actually executed it and did well. So what's the big secret with "make glyphs, all of them, JC/DE, and post religiously"? Nothing, except the execution.
