The year is coming to an end. As it does, we take a look back on this year. We have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. MoP opened and closed markets, cata sought to wreck Crimson Rein sales, and our coffers have either suffered or flourished.
I personally had set a goal to hit the gold cap by the end of the year. I knew it was going to be tough due to a mass server transfer. I will walk into the new year at about 60% of the way there.
I've been given enough time on my new server to get a good feel for it's economy, and it was much easier to do with a new expansion riding with me to Caelestrasz. I was able to see the market develop from day one of MoP.
Now that I have this knowledge, as well as a large profit gain in the past couple months, I have confidence I can not only reach my gold cap within a few months, but also set a highly ambitious goal of 5M by the end of 2013. I will attempt to achieve this through cross server means, but the bulk of it will come from Caelestrasz.
My goal is to establish a cross faction setup on Cael, and establish 'outpost' toons on other servers to help move sales of pets and mounts. Then, at the end of 2013, I will count my earnings and see how far off I am from my 5M goal.
All the while, I will be doing a massive recollection of thoughts, cleaning up of sales methods, and increasing efficiency and productivity on Cael.
One by one over the next couple months, I will be pressing on certain markets to 'master' them to a point where I let my /2 macros and TSM listings do all the work.
So! Let's hear it from you all. What mistakes or glorifying moments were most notable in 2012? What do you plan to do in 2013?
