So I'm back doing the weekly review posts, to kind of summarize my week in WoW gold making, and give you some insight into what I'm doing currently to make gold.
Return of my Routine
This week I got out of my gold making rut I was in from the Stormspire Scavenger Hunt. It was a fun competition and I learned a lot of how hard it actually is to start gold making on a server, especially with time constraints, and competing against like minded players! With the return of my full effort this week I made 90,479g in profit. Not too shabby considering that in the past few weeks I've made about 100k total, so this week (barring some expensive stockpiling) has been my profitable over the past 2 months by a LONG shot.
So this week I got back into my routine, which I don't think I've ever really detailed, and I've even gotten into...glyphs. Yes, my least favorite gold making profession, but I've indeed been dabbling in glyphs, with good returns. Still not my favorite to grind, but I have a good TSM setup right now and it's working out well for me. So my routine consists of the following:
- JC: Prospecting Ore to cut/DE (also buying/cutting LK Epic Gems)
- Making scrolls with leftovers from above (plus Maelstroms)
- Transmuting Carnelians to Inferno Rubies (to be cut into Brilliant, Delicate, Bold)
- Alchemy Cooldowns every day (more on this below)
- Milling Cheap Whiptail
- Glyphs - 2 of each, only posting at 200% or greater profit (again more below)
- Tailoring Spellthreads
- 77-78 Twink Gear
- Corrupting the Alliance side of my server (Transmog/Twink Gear only)
So I've got a lot to do, when I finish one I move on to another, and trust me I have ore and herbs backed up to be "processed" but my stock of gems and glyphs is full as is, so no need to really process it at the moment.
So the way I'm running glyphs is this. I'm only milling Whiptail for Blackfallow Ink which I trade. Each glyph crafted uses 3/5ths of a stack of whiptail (ink wise). Using the price I buy whiptail as the guide, I set 300% of each glyph price (or 1.8x the stack of a whiptail) to be my minimum posting price (300% return - 100% payed = 200% minimum profit). If it goes below that I have TSM post at my reset price (324.99g). I post only from my scribe because I'm not walling, and I find with only 2 of each glyph as opposed to 3 which I used to do, it makes it A LOT faster for me to cancel/repost. My scribe is still learning new recipes through Research/Books so I am currently restocking every day, but once he has them all I plan on crafting maybe twice a week. So far it's manageable, but mostly because I don't really play my scribe and set him up with 4x Inscription Bags.
Current Thoughts on Alchemy CDs
What I'm doing right now for alchemy CDs, I have three Transmute masters, and I'm having all of them transmute Volatile Air. I was doing Truegold for a while, but decided to lay off a bit, because Truegold isn't a guaranteed good investment right now, and I already have a decent amount of it. I'm netting a minimum 675g guaranteed return per day burning my Volatile Air CD so I'll take that right now as opposed to the Truegold.
Last, but certainly not least, I'm going to mention stockpiling. I have been currently doing daily searches, and using wowuction.com to find under priced pets to invest in. If you're interested to see my original post on stockpiling for Mists, you can find it here. And here is how it looks now:
So now that you know about my routine, is there anything in your gold making routine that's not in mine?
