Finally! I'm tired of having to tell the whole group that I'm a DE just to have everyone greeding on every piece of BoP loot...

Mmo-Chumpion Strikes Again Best Thorium
Wiggin said...
Good job Markco for pointing out that these tips (more like direct instructions) leave areas for us real auctioneers to make massive gold.

I was upset when I first saw the post on MMO-champion because prospecting thorium has been my most consistent source of income for months!

So far on my server things are going well for me. Thorium ore usually sells for 30-40g a stack (lower than most servers) I however only bought when it dipped below 20 when farmers dropped their supply. The last 6 hours I've sold probably a dozen stacks for 60-70g per.

On the bright side, gems haven't been flooded (yet)! Still selling Opals/Emeralds for 15, Diamonds for 12.5, star ruby's for 10 and blue sapphires for 5.

Thankfully I have both a large supply of gems and thorium, so I don't even have to farm, I just have to watch and see :)

This just shows that you are reaching a wider base of readers. Just a small percentage of your readers are idiots. The more idiot comments you get, just indicate the larger number of readers you now have.

Feel free to just delete those comments.

Back to the topic, I know my competition reads my blog. I will offset things I do or try by a few days or even weeks. I write the post in the moment but queue it out several days.

Like this last week, we had an herb shortage. I was weak in the market while I got things in order. I am back in the market at full force now because of an ink farmer I picked up last tuesday. My post that talks about my first buy from him will show up in the morning.

With that said, I am not manipulating my markets like those guys sugest with the blog. But I am keeping myself 1 step ahead of my competition.

Weight Loss

Finally another 2 pounds lost today after almost 7 days not losing a pound. Looking forward to the next week :D

I'm down 15 pounds in two weeks, not too shabby! I want to thank all the people kind enough to send me emails and offer advice. Still hoping for 20 pounds in one month... oh and for those who guessed it, I am doing this for someone very special to me.

  1. "oh and for those who guessed it, I am doing this for someone very special to me."

    Me?

  2. The sad thing of the latest mmo-chump post is that anyone that uses the "Search" option from Auctioneer could have figured it out.

  3. You may tell yourself that you are doing it for someone very special but, truth of the matter is improving your personal fitness either physically or mentally only benefits you. Anything outside of you is an influence, either positive or negative. This special person you say your doing it for is only influencing you to better yourself. These are the types of people we all need in our lives; without them we would become a dismal and chaotic society.

    Good work Markco; you have been a tremendous influence to more than a few of us.

  4. Dude! Chuck the scale! Really. Looking at the scale will make you go batty. Take measurements and go by your clothes loosening up. Weight will fluctuate 3-8 pounds on WATER ALONE.

    Wanna drop 5 pounds in 2 days? Do not eat any salt AT ALL. You will shed a ton of water weight (and pee a lot). And you'll lose 5 pounds, maybe more. But, it's note real., As soon as you have some salt, you will again hold onto that water.

    So, lose the scale. It's better for you.

  5. It is great that you are committed to losing extra weight and being more healthy. However, 20 pounds in one month seems drastic. Have to consulted with a doctor?

  6. Am i the only one who giggles when they see a "lose 20 pounds in 1 week with this 1 weird trick" (i made up the numbers) ad on the forums?

    I can't help but laugh. ;)

    But... Keep it up Markco!

  7. My wife made me use her pilates ball instead of my office chair while I wasn't raiding. Just the act of balancing and stretching has made me lose 2 inches off my waist in 2 months. Now I have more energy, and have started walking/jogging hoping to lose more.

    So get a pilates ball, and use it while you are prospecting. :)

    Good luck, and thanks for the blog. I have made 40k gold since I started reading.

  8. "This special person you say your doing it for is only influencing you to better yourself. These are the types of people we all need in our lives; without them we would become a dismal and chaotic society."

    I like your style....

    "oh and for those who guessed it, I am doing this for someone very special to me."

    is it me e.e?

  9. Yes lil' estalker :)

  10. Markco,

    New reader here - how are you losing all the weight? I'm assuming lots of running given your quick results thus far?

  11. Just be careful of losing too much too fast, Marcko. I'm obviously not a physician but I'd be careful if I was you.

    On another note, does anyone have any tips for *gaining* weight? :P

  12. Thanks, working out doing 3-5 mile runs and eating healthy

  13. Damn well done thats alot of weight fast...along the line of fitness any way to drastically improve it in 2 days just got over a cold and it has dropped my fitness severly and ive got 2 days till my end of year PE exam .....any ideas?

  14. Raven do nothing for 2 days and eat super healthy. You'll find you have plenty of energy then for your test.
