I Quit

I am going to apologize to anyone who has been reading who liked this blog, but I cannot continue. I do not have the motivation anymore. I rarely play WoW, and when I do, I'm not busy making gold all the time. I cannot do it. There are also much better blogs than mine out there, and I can direct you to a few of them.

Power Word: Gold

Good luck out there Gordon(s). I will miss this, but I cannot continue. Good luck, and have fun!

I've had a lot going on recently, which is why I haven't posted much. This week was finals week at school, and thankfully it's finally over. However, my girlfriend and I just broke up and I am going through a lot of emotional turmoil in life right now. I am taking a break (probably a week or two, nothing major) from gold blogging and possibly WoW itself while I try to get my life in place. Await my return.

Thoughts and prayers are welcomed.

Addons, Mostly

So I have maxed out enchanting on my druid now as well as tailoring, and have been making some of my gold back I spent on power leveling them (10k total...).

I have found that I can sell Scroll of Enchant Boots - Haste for almost 100g per (I made 5 for skill ups) and they all sold. They only cost me around 20g to make one, so that is a nice profit just for leveling up. Don't discount some of the lesser scrolls, people will buy them.

The rest of this post will be devoted to a few of the addons I use, and how to use them effectively yourself.
*This post will contain screenshots later*

The first addon I will talk about is auctionator. I find that it is superior to auctioneer in multiple ways, namely the buy and sell tabs. When you go to the buy tab, you search for the item you want, and it scans all occurrences of that item. It then shows you the cheapest in gold-per-item. This way, you can always get the best deal. And when buying multiple stacks, you can just click a single button to buy the next one, until all of the stacks are gone, saving you time.

Another useful Auctionator tool is the shopping list feature. When you create a shopping list, it will be blank. When you search for an item with your shopping list selected, you can click the "Add item to Shopping List" button. You can add multiple items to this list and then use the "Search for All Items" button to search for the entire shopping list. This is especially useful when you are in the glyph market, as you can create a shopping list of all of the herbs required to create each ink used for glyph making (I also add Cataclysm herbs to all of these lists as well, because sometimes they are cheaper than Northrend and Outland herbs, and I can just trade inks). Another use of this is when comparing the three cataclysm ores, or the prices of rare gems, their uncommon counterparts, and the herbs required to transmute the uncommons into rares.

The next addon is TradeSkillMaster. Others have put this to use more than I have (The Consortium Forums), since I only use it for one thing - The post button. I create a group of every single glyph I can craft, set my undercut to 2g, fallback to 190g, and threshold to 15g. Then, once they are all added to the group, I can just go to the auction house, hit the post button on TSM, and wait while it scans, and then I click the post button like mad to post the hundreds of auctions.

The final addon for today is Advanced Tradeskill Window (which I have been using in lieu of Skillet recently, and have come to like it more). You can create queues of the items you want to craft, and any mats you need will be put into a shopping list that can be viewed at an auction house. It also has the ability to buy all of your needed vendor materials for items in the queue, with a single click. Then you can process the queue. You have to click the process button after one specific item is done (like if you have 100 blackfallow inks and 5 inferno inks in the queue, after crafting the 100 blackfallows you have to click process again). It also makes enchanting easier, because when processing multiple similar enchants, after one is finished it is immediately ready to put onto another scroll, without having to move across the screen to click the buttons again in the tradeskill window.

Well that concludes today's post, until I add pictures later on. Feel free to contact me if you need clarification.

Feliz lunes

Crusaders, March!

The item Formula:Enchant Weapon - Crusader now exists and drops in game again, off of Scarlet Archmages in Tyr's Hand in the Eastern Plaguelands. I just spent 5k on this enchant, and am now regretting it, since many people are reporting farming in 30 minutes to an hour. If you are not an enchanter, you can farm these for some large income (since people will probably still pay 5k+ for a few weeks until more realize it's back). The scrolls are up for almost 400g, so I may start crafting them, but I'm going to try to flip it for around 8k first. Doesn't hurt to try, right?

I finally got my Druid to 75, and have maxed out Tailoring, for a cost of 7k gold. I've made about 2k back from selling pvp gear, and hopefully will get more when I disenchant the greens. I am currently working on leveling enchanting as well. My brother's paladin (who I use as my blacksmith/miner) is also level 74, almost 75, so I can benefit from Cataclysm blacksmithing as well, which means profit!

I am working on leveling a second death knight on another server to transfer over for more professions, and to have a PVP oriented death knight. Once I get him leveled and maxed, I will have access to 8 maxed professions (Alchemy, enchanting, jewelcrafting, tailoring, mining, inscription, engineering, and blacksmithing). The only crafting profession I will be missing is leatherworking, which is on my Shaman, who will also be an alchemist, that will be my next leveling adventure. The first alchemist will be a transmute alchemist, and I am leaning towards that for the second one as well. This will give me many more epic gems if they come from transmutes in 4.3.

Following in the footsteps of Cold at Cold's Gold Factory, and selling Mysterious Fortune Cards. I bought around 1k in herbs and bought up a stack of 150 cards that were 12g a piece, and posted all of mine in stacks of 10 at 15g a piece. I made upwards of 5k in sales, which was over 2k in profit. I should feel remorse for taking advantage of the greed of others, but I do not, as the profits are amazing xD. Any stack of cata herbs under 40g, I am buying up to craft into inks, and then into cards, since each stack provides at least 4 cards, and I'm going off of 10g per card.

I am also buying any obsidium/elementium ore for under 40g to craft into gems, since I am officially out of inferno rubies. And now that I can get enchanting mats from the greens, I am able to profit more from these wonderful things.

Even though today's post wasn't necessarily a tip, it does contain some tidbits of information that I'm sure others could benefit from. If anyone has a suggestion for something to talk about or something they want my opinion on, feel free to leave a comment or send me an e-mail, and I can reply personally or blog about it. I am writing this blog for fun, and I want to have fun, personal (WOW RELATED) topics being talked about, while still sharing some of my knowledge with people who need help making gold in the auction house.

I apoligize

For my recent hiatus and lack of good posts. I was having trouble thinking of things to write, and hopefully am getting over that. However, my posting WILL become less frequent, one or two posts a week in addition to my collections reports. I was blogging for followers, and started to lose interest since that was not the way to go about this. I am now going to blog solely for sharing my ideas and hopefully some people read them. That's all I want, to help a few people make some gold in this wonderful World  of Warcraft.

I had an eventful weekend. I went to a concert on Friday, had my Senior prom on Saturday, and had to clean things on Sunday. Needless to say, I did not have much time to play WoW this weekend, until Sunday night.

And when I went to log on, I cried a little inside.

I had completely forgotten that I was running out of WoW time, and now I am behind even more on sales. I think this might affect me a little on my markets. Hopefully I can get more time tonight so that I may collect my gold and repost everything. The inability to do so is very depressing, since I know that while my account is inactive, I am not making any gold. And I like making gold.

I don't really know what to port up today in relation to a tip, because I haven't played all weekend and I feel out of place right now. I will post real tips tomorrow after I get my WoW account turned back on. If you have any questions, I will answer them to the best of my ability, be it by email or by comments.

In the meantime, if you are in need of some gold, auction off some Enchanting Vellum's, as they sell quite well and are very cheap to buy from the vendor. Also, I do not know why this is all underlined, because it will not let me change it. Ignore it, if you will.

Well this line seems to not have the underline issue, so I have no idea what that was all about. Well, tomorrow, real post. Today, just some insight into my goings on. 

A single (1) random picture.

I was lagging, so in the Dressing Room, my body was missing. I wish this was my real model.

Happy Monday!
