Instant Gratification

Today I'd like to touch on the topic of instant gratification in gold making.  Recently I've been getting a lot of questions asking what people should do in certain scenarios and 99.9% of the time I recommend adding 77 twink gear and daily transmog searches to their profession arsenal, and most people don't want to take the time to repost the stuff when the auctions expire.

Fun Facts
Yes, transmog gear and twink gear don't sell as quickly as raw materials you can farm, or cut gems for example, BUT they sell at a way higher profit margin when they do sell, and they take very little time invested if you use TSM.  Instead of spending hours maximizing your JC profit by doing the shuffle, you can do a quick scan of the AH, maybe spend 15 minutes accruing new supplies, and be on your merry way.

The one thing you have to know about this Cataclysm Twink gear is that although you may sell 1-2 items in patches, but when there's a new 77 who is fully aware of it, he's go…

The Stormspire Challenge

Wow.  Just realizing I haven't posted in over 2 weeks now.  This isn't where I make my obligatory I've needed a break from WoW or I've been playing Diablo 3 post, I have been playing WoW.

In fact I've started up on a new server to partake in the Great Stormspire Scavenger Hunt.  It's a competition among some gold makers where the objective is to get as many items off a list of rare/expensive items as possible, to score points.  If you are interested in how the scoring will take place, you can read more about it on the site.

How I'm doing it.
I'm not going to divulge too much information, but I figured a basic outline could benefit my readers.  I started off with a DK with mining/herbalism.  Yes.  I chose gathering professions.  It's very hard to powerlevel a crafting profession when your goal is to buy expensive things the second they come available.  I did not however use these professions at all the first week of the competition, but I was able t…

Wand Mogging List for Mists of Pandaria!

As promised in my previous post, I've made a list of wands that would make for good transmog come MoP.  The reason I think wands will be a great thing to stockpile for Mists is because they will become a main weapon for caster's in MoP, and no one is using them for transmog right now.  

This list includes all unique looking BoE wands that could be sold on the AH for mogging, come MoP when wands are going to become caster's main weapons.  I also only included items that are currently able to be transmogged, ie. they have some sort of primary or secondary stat on them, assuming the mogging rules won't change come MoP.  

This is by no means a guide to mogging wands, but a guide to buying BoE mogging wands to resell in the future.  Without further ado, here are your lists, in both TSM and Auctionator formats:

Phat's Weekly Lewt Review: Week Ending 5/3

This week in WoW has been a very interesting one for me to look back on.  Especially on the gold making front.

If you've been reading my recent Weekly Reviews you'll know I've been considering dropping transmog until MoP.  This idea was once again squashed.  This week I made over 14k profit in transmog items, Horde side alone.  Big ticket items like a 5k shield carried this profiting, as well as partial to full sets selling at once.  This just means to me it's worth about 5k gold every time I posted last week, so I will continue throwing things up.  My toon that I use ONLY for transmog, and have not given any gold other than 3k to start out is now up to 125k gold.  Not too shabby!

For the...Alliance?
If you follow me on twitter you probably know that I am very Horde based.  That being said I have 9 Horde characters on my main server, and 1 Alliance.  My Alliance character is only level 37, but this week I managed to make about half of my Overall Server Change (…

My Mists Stockpile

Hey guys,

A lot of gold bloggers recently have been going over stockpiling for MoP, and while I'm not really full fledged into stockpiling mode right now, I figured I'd go over what I currently am looking for and what I'll be looking for in the future.

As you can see I have a decent amount of pets.  With the new pet battle (Pok√©mon) system coming out, pets are going to be a commodity in HIGH DEMAND in MoP.  People will want rare pets that not many others have.  To this tune I have been snatching up Argent Tournament pets that are below half my average server price, as well as Elementium Geodes.  The Argent Tournament Pets are pretty few and far between as is, not to mention that near the release of MoP, very few people will be acquiring more of them (if any) because they are exploring new content.  The Elementium Geodes are less than a 1% drop right now, and considering that Elementium Ore won't be farmed NEARLY as much, I'm buying these up at around 200-300g …
