I wrote to Cold that I do not believe twink gear from instances would be worth stockpiling for cataclysm since the new boa gear being released would probably be better than any x9 items (new boas for leveling 80-85 will probably be better than current boa gear at all levels). He seems convinced that the current twink gear will be changed to more valuable stats and sent me this guest post to try and convince you that stockpiling twink gear for cataclysm is a good idea. I wouldn't want to avoid sharing a possible gold strategy just because I dissagree with it! Here's his post:
A Guest Post by Cold of Cold's Gold Factory
Thank you very much Markco for allowing me to contribute as a guest poster and thank you for the post you did at Cold's Gold Factory. This post will build upon the information presented by Markco's Original Guest Post.
Saronite ore is one of the primary crafting materials in world of warcraft and thankfully blizzard made it fairly easy to stockpile while farming or else prices would be ridiculous for many items, including titanium bars. Here is a quick chart of how to use titanium bars to make gold.
Buy Saronite Ore on the auction house, Smelt into Saronite Bar, Transmute into Titanium Bars, and finally Craft Titanium Rod, Titanium Weapon Chain, Titanium Plating and Titanium Shield Spike. You could also smelt titansteel.
The real trick to this is getting cheap saronite ore, which on most servers is just a matter of checking the auction house every time you log in. For every stack of saronite ore you will get 10 saronite bars and 1.2 titanium bars before alchemy transmute specialization. I may be doing the math slightly wrong here but you will get about 1.44 titanium bars per 10 saronite bars with transmute spec. You can use those numbers then to determine the profitability of the five items I’ve suggested you craft in this post.
NOTE: There are little 20's next to the ore because I pasted the images from wowhead, those do not have any significance on the post or diagram whatsoever.

I was blown away by this guide! It reminds me so much of my gold guide in that it teaches you how to think and not just what's the wrong way to play but more importantly why it's wrong. This guide should be called the Raider's Bible.
I didn't find anything I disagreed with from my raiding experience and learned a thing or two myself. I've been playing for 5 years, that speaks to the quality of the guide. For someone like myself who has a medium level of raiding experience this guide was definitely a huge improvement on my knowledge of pve.
In Game Addon
The coolest part of the guide is the in game talent addon, showing you the right pve specs
from a dropdown menu within the game itself!
The list of recommended and optional addons was thorough, saw several I'd never heard of before and I look forward to testing them all out.
Which Professions are best for raiding?
Didn't even think of this until I saw it in the guide and I study professions all the time!
How to be a raid leader
This part of the guide was extremely thorough and well thought out. It will show you exactly how to build a casual, medium or hardcore guild from the ground up. I wish I had this when I created Free Beer Tomorrow Onyxia back in the day.
Excellent rotations which make use of a mixture of priority as well as macros.
Everything you need to know about the stats required for raiding as well as how and when you should gem certain ways in your raiding career.Raiding for Noobs is 91 pages of pure raiding knowledge, pretty much everything you need to be a professional raider. Comes highly recommended from the staff here at Just My Two Copper. Man I wish I had staff or at least interns to fetch me coffee. Maybe a hot secretary or three. Know any?
