    Nothing is working.

    SO as the title says, i have tried and tried to make gold but i am finding it near impossible. Im stuck at around 20k now and have still not found a market where i feel i can make any decent profit from, So i really really need you guys' help. I have maxed JC, Enchanting, Mining, Inscription and Tailoring altho the tailoring,jc and inscription r on lvl 85 toons. I have tried the Ghost Iron Shuffle and i am finding that my server just sucks when it comes to selling any form of gems. So like i said i really really need some help to get my gold amount up. I have never been what i would say is a gold maker ( have always struggled, since burning crusade ), any help really would be very much appreicated. Thanks in advance.

    Some information if it helps.

    Server - Arathor(EU) I'm not certain on how to check what my server's population is but i would say medium.
    Toons - 90 warrior ( Mining, Enchanting )
    86 Paladin ( Inscription, Enchanting )
    85 Mage ( Tailoring, Jewelcrafting )

    At this point i would try anything to make some gold. Thanks again.

    Well you should be making some amount of gold with your daily enchanting, tailoring, and inscription cooldowns even if it's as low as 100g each. If all of the profession markets are as terrible as you claim then you might want to use undermine journal to spot very cheap items you can flip for 100%+ profit.

    I have a hard time believing the shuffle isn't worth it. Could you walk us through your JC strategy/routine?

    Buy the ore, prospect it and cut uncommon gems to perfect and sell the normal ones to vendor. Just as i write that i can tell im doing something very wrong, please dont hurt me, im only a gold noobie But like i aid before gems do seem to sell very very slow and for a low price.

    Cutting the uncommon gems is sometimes not the best use of them. Explore other options. I can say that I personally engage in the mindless ore shuffle and come out very profitable, so much so that I'm netting more ore daily than I can prospect and still coming out in the deep black. Another issue is you're dealing with only one 90 with two of the professions you have chosen. You can't truly maximize JC without leveling the character and retaining the metas.

    I had a brief look at the alliance TUJ-page of your server, and prices if gems actually do seem to be quite low :/
    Are you on alliance side or on horde? Unfortunately I cant check horde-side right now since I'm online on my smartphone

    Don't know about the quantity of each gem on the auctionhouse, but if it's not too high, you might consider resetting the prices for at least some of them... I had the luck to get my hands on a huge amount of cheap ore, an while others are suffering from a lack of ore, I managed to reset most of the rares to 250g+ and the perfects usually sell for 333g (sometimes even more expensive than rares ^^ lazy/stupid people out there...). Fortunaltely the few competitors keep playing my game and don't crash prices...

    Here's a small tip for you to make some easy, mindless gold each day. Farming. Get yourself revered with the Tillers so you can plant Songbells, make absolutely sure you harvest them each and every day. Every 2 days, on each of my alts, I'm harvesting 32 motes, which of course equals out to be 3 SoH. Turn those SoH into the npc at the Alliance area in the vale for 6 Golden Lotus (sometimes other items might end up being more profitable, I'll leave it to you to investigate that). On my server, I make just over 100g per lotus easily. So basically 200g per day from that per level 90 you have. Now, while you're at the farm, look for the quest that gives the Ironpaw token as a reward. It takes very little time to do that quest. Then, turn the token into the npc in the Tiller area for whatever sells the highest on your server, Rice Flour, Soy Sauce or Pepper. On my server, it's pretty much 300g for any of these. If your server prices are anywhere near mine, that's 500 very easy gold every single day, more if you use the items for crafting. I do this on 5 level 90 toons right now for an effortless 2500g a day. If you're struggling to make gold, spending some time to level up a few more alts to 90 can really help!

    A large portion of the gold I make from shuffling is from transmuting Primal Diamonds, so you may want to look into leveling a transmute alchemist. I would also consider using the uncommon gems to make jewelery, then de it to make scrolls or just sell the mats.
