Phat Glyphs Part 2

In my post about 10 days ago, Phat Glyphs?, I went over my not so smooth entrance into the glyph market.  Today's post is going to be based off of that original post, so I suggest reading it as a preface if you haven't already.

Observations
Trying to get into the glyph market was a new and daunting task.  I had TSM all set up, but it takes time and coordination to get everything crafted.  I started off posting from a level 1 posting alt, BIG MISTAKE.  I know some like it, but it's not for me.  I don't have a LW and there were no inscription bags on the AH so instead of trying to get someone to craft them for me I just got 20 slot bags.  My personal opinion is that if you're going to post glyphs, you should get scribe bags.  There are 2 ideal scribe bags, a 32 slot, and a 36 slot.  So I decided to post all my glyphs from my scribe alt who wasn't my main posting toon.  This worked a lot better for me.

I now had the option to craft glyphs as I saw fit, and do all my glyph related activities from the one character, instead of switching around.  This really streamlined the process for me and I highly recommend it.  For some background my alt that has inscription is level 82 and will probably never see 85.  I don't really "play" this alt, just use him to craft glyphs, so the only thing in his bags other than inscription materials is a hearthstone.  This kind of situation makes my alt ideal to post from, and if it's your main, it probably won't be.

Patience, Patience, Patience.
The glyph market is a novel thing, especially when compared to other WoW markets.  The "AFK Time" in glyph making is substantial and I find myself coming back to WoW too early, as pigments take quite a bit of time to turn to inks.  Contrary to my initial beliefs though, the glyph market on my server is a viable way to make gold.  If you are a JC or Alchemist, it's going to be a culture shock, but IMO it's worth it.  Contrary to my initial post I normally make 2-3k per day with inscription, posting at most 2-3 times per day, and restocking once per week.

More Info:
While I was getting into the glyph making market, Croda's Inscription Gold Guide was an invaluable resource.  If you really want to get to know the glyph market inside and out, this is an essential read.  It's long, but really worth it and filled with invaluable information.  A must read for any aspiring scribe!

Cheers,
