This was longer but there is a 10,000 character limit in Blog posts
TLDR: I achieved some goals with my flawed strategy and learned some things in the process. Thanks to everyone involved. Multi-boxers rule.
First, I would like to thank @Sterling @Sinshroud @calianna @Kathroman for putting this contest together. It was well thought out and administered efficiently.
OK I thought I was done posting (except for last summary) but I just had to put up a screenshot of something crazy that just happened. I logged back into my banker and collected my mail. My gold shot up by about 2000g, but I couldn't think of what might have sold. I did a fire sale of all my good recipes earlier today.
I checked TSM and saw this.
yeah I sold 18 wool cloth (not even a full stack) for almost 1700g.
So there are a few hours left in the competition and Pozytecznosc from The Zerg is about finished cleaning up. Honestly, the real winner of this competition is him. He made a killing.
I just paid 18K for a Sunwell Tailoring recipe. He didn't name that price, I'm sure I could have gotten it cheaper, but I don't need gold anymore so I gave him everything I had left. Yep, this was the last recipe I needed.
My gut says
Another competitor I have my eyes on is PhatLewts. He's been farming Sunwell and by watching his character's armory page I see he has 2 Sunwell Tailoring recipes. I'm hoping I can do a trade here. He's keeping his progress tight to his chest, but I have a sneaky suspicion that he's very close to having them all.
Edit: It has definitely crossed my mind that PhatLewts is Kyoukai and Yoinker, but I'm not sure.
