Hi guys, first post here. Have been a lurker for a while and doing reasonably well on the AH - recently hit the 1M mark.
Low-medium pop realm.
11xL80+, a few 85 and 90. Same faction.
Alternate account with other faction alt (slowly leveling characters there to avoid having to put ores and herbs through the NAH).
6xInscription, 6xAlchemy, rest of the professions distributed amongst my chars.
Markets I am active in:
Jewelcrafting: all meta gems, all perfect cuts, gradually moving into rare gems as I unlock recipes
Enchanting: all MoP enchants bar sha crystal (no reputation), crusader/agility etc when I can gather materials
Inscription: roughly 20 DM trinkets per month
Alchemy: directly selling Living Steel and Primal Diamond
I have a few arrangements with sellers on my realm for Ghost Iron Ore. I can buy it on the AH and remain profitable on a gold basis, but I would likely lose gold on a daily basis (and build stockpiles of all non-PD materials) if I did this. Debating it.
I flip the odd high value item, Pandarian iLvl gear, recipes etc. Glyphs seem like a colossal waste of time for the return, to be honest. I doubt I could make more than a thousand or two per day if I sat on the AH all day undercutting.
Any ideas for other markets I can expand into? As far as I can see, everything is locked behind reputation walls (my chars aren't 90, but if they were, I hate dailies and really don't have the time to be honest). Whole professions seem pointless - I make Imperial Silk daily on my tailor, but without reputation, it's pointless. LW, BS seem worthless. I gave up on Ghost Iron Dragonling as it's been consumed by levellers now.
It feels a bit like Inscription is my bread and butter at present - it makes over 50% of my income.
