    Ironforge Limited Supply Route - 3 Minutes 32 Seconds = 7g Cost, +-1,000

    I first released this in the Stormspire the other day because it's a technique that immediately becomes less effective when there are many competitors who enter the market at once. And that is pretty much what the Stormspire is designed for. Decided to move it into the public forums now.

    This guide contains relatively basic knowledge that items can be bought from vendors and often resold on the AH as a profit. Even though to most 1,000g isn't that much, any seasoned gold maker should by now appreciate how all the tiny trickles of income all add up in the end.

    So a while ago I released my Outlands Limited Supply - A Lucrative Market Guide and it was a huge success.
    Now this kind of strategy can be applied all over World of Warcraft.

    Here is a quick example of how I spent 3 minutes and 32 seconds, 6 gold and came out with an estimated profit of 733 gold. Unfortunately this guide is only for the Alliance since it's based on Ironforge Vendors, but the Horde Equivalent items can be found in Orgrimmar too from the equivalent suppliers.


    I know the video didn't come out all thaaaat wonderful, so below I've got a nice map for you describing where to go as well as links to all the NPCs so you can just find them on Wowhead's maps.

    Somethings to keep in mind:

    • Not all the items listed below were available in the video due to them not spawning at that time.
    • My purchase prices might be a bit lower than yours if you are not Exalted with Ironforge.
    • Yes the profit IS server dependent, and they do sell differently on different servers. Generally if there aren't any up, you should just throw the item up for 80-150g because in reality 150g is next to nothing at level 85.

    Good stuff. I was just taking the Blue Firework across faction and making a killing off just that one.

    Cool. Did you know that you can buy , and from Buckslappy in Gadgetzan? (though I think the Red is Horde only and Blue is Alliance only).

    I've just finished my Dalaran Limited Supply Guide which I will release at a later date so I will start working on the rest of the limited supply items - there are a bunch spread out all over in different zones as you can see here: http://www.mmowned.com/forums/world-...-supplies.html

    Yeah, with so many vendors moving and/or vanishing, I've not made as much effort lately to buy up patterns for resale.

    Edit: Didn't know about Buckslappy. But that is now my favorite NPC name.

    I hate your server. I've played around in the Tailoring recipes for awhile, but the competition was pretty consistent. Just a quick TUJ search for a few of the items shows more consistent competition and much lower prices. This seems to be a fairly standard thing on my server... Savvy investors all around. Great guide, though!

    Ouch. I left Ironforge and the Alliance Trade Chat and the Terri-bad BG's (I know it's only perception, but it felt like my win ratio doubled, almost instantaneously) a long time ago.

    I have found Thunder Bluff has a pretty decent selection and availability of limited supply items. I made about 1000g profit in my first 4 -5 days when I leveled a fresh Horde DK and ran the TB recipe run. Even better now with flying mounts in Azeroth.

    Did this last night. Spent 30 minutes learning what to buy and where it was, and setting up my TSM groups. TUJ shows I've already made 250 gold off this, which is equivalent to a bad glyph day. With practice, I can make this a daily run on my mage at the end of the night and have it all wrapped up in under 5 minutes. Top notch, Sinshroud.

    Any chance you have more limited supply run guides coming for the other places I can port around to? It'd be great to port my mage around for 10 minutes and combine the best that each city has to offer.
    Retired - I blame Kathroman for everything.

    (that's a joke, eh)

    Yep I have tons more coming. I have another one already done but I don't want to release it just yet, and many more on their way.

    Once they are all released I will then make a vid showing the fastest way around all of them at once.

    Are there any horde side guides similar to this, preferably for the major cities?
