The reason I clump banking and mailing together is because with the right setup your mailbox can become a second bank. With the wrong setup it can become an absolute nightmare for you. Let's show you the setup first and then go over the reasoning behind it, that's less boring I think anyway. And no sorry I don't have a product per se on the subject, though my gold guide is pretty good if I do say so myself!
These players don’t use auctioneer scans because they…
- …Know their markets so well that they can search for mats and review prices manually a lot faster than it takes to run a scan. Depending on the number of markets this could happen pretty quickly for most auctioneers.
- …Prefer to flip a few big name items while allowing an untold number of smaller flips to go untouched.
- …Use addons like QA3 which are doing the posting and not auctioneer, so why keep a scan going to maintain the database when it’s not the one posting?
I almost got mad today at an email I received regarding posts I’ve made on this site. The reader kept stating that my strategies do not work on his server and he listed probably a dozen he’s tried and failed at. Like I said I almost got mad at him because it was just one of those days where I didn’t get enough sleep, was hungry and had been patiently answering emails for a good thirty minutes prior. I channeled my frustration into an idea. You know, one of those really good ideas that once it’s in your head begs you to write about it?
Tons and tons of items flood the market place at high to normal value and buyers flock to purchase quick upgrades or enhancements. Sure this part of the weekend is great for sellers and demand usually takes care of undercutters very quickly, but it’s when you get deeper into the weekend and most buyers stop showing up that things get interesting. With reduced demand but many auctions that didn’t sell the day before being posted at 48 hours, the supply to demand ratio completely flip flops. Instead of high demand, medium supply you now have low to medium demand and way too much supply. Prices plummet in response. A wise auctioneer will sell like crazy with everything he has from Thursday night to Friday night and then buy the leftovers Saturday morning and on into Sunday.
I would first off like to thank you for your awesome gold tips. I have gone from a person struggling to gem and enchant my gear to hitting the 50K mark for the first time! I know this is a mere pittance compared to your riches, but as a casual-playing college student (who LOVES to PvP), I make all the gold I will ever need, and then some. I can not tell you how much this is appreciated, and for someone who has been playing WoW for almost a year, having gold just makes the game more enjoyable and I would recommend EVERY new person who joins WoW to read this awesome blog. The tips and tactics are so easy and valuable it just makes the game alot more fun. Since hitting the 50K mark I have also helped spread the wealth, buying epic flying and a battered hilt for a couple of guildies who have not read your blog obviously and are struggling for gold. I think helping people is just as rewarding as opening up your mailbox and finding that 80% of your auctions have sold, and I know you feel the same way since you're giving away these awesome gold tips for free! I would also like to give you a little gold making gem I discovered when i was first levelling some alts of mine, I checked out your blog and I couldn't find it anywhere, so if you have mentioned it before sorry for repeating it.
You may have noticed that there are double the subscribers on this site than there were a month ago. I'd like to take this week's Markco's Corner as an oppurtunity to share with bloggers and readers alike how I managed this incredible feat. Care to guess why JMTC has doubled its readership?
Wait a second, the title says “listening instead of monitoring,” does that have something to do with it?
Glyph Kits - You will want to have your glyphs ready for one of the greatest surges of buying we've ever seen in the market. Don't just stockpile inks, stockpile the glyphs themselves so you're ready to sell them the moment you finish downloading the 4.0.1 content. Also don't just stockpile the ink of the sea because in cataclysm you will no longer be able to trade ink of the sea for any ink as there will be a new top ink which fulfills this role. No word yet on whether ink of the sea will lose its functionality for trade ins with the onset of 4.0.1 but why take the chance? WARNING: Read about Charred Glyphs.
I'm sure you've seen people making the claim that someone is instantly undercutting them by 1 copper the moment they post and you scoffed at them. Then it happened to you and you were probably a little angry and confused as well. How can someone "bot" the auction house and get away with it?
Armor pen gems are going away in 4.0, and that means strength, agility and haste gems are going to be what every player needs to replace their new (and somewhat useless) crit gems. Especially for classes like the warrior who love to gem tons of armor pen in order to reach the 100% cap will suddenly find themselves crowding the auction house for a new set of strength gems.
With the conversion of badges plus honor points into cataclysm points people will be less likely to buy epic gems with their badges and honor because they'd rather save up for cataclysm. This will directly affect the cut epic gem market since less cheap uncut gems will be appearing. Expect prices to rise a significant amount (20-40%) from this change.
Buying Items at a Discount
You've heard me talk in the past about buying things wholesale like illusion dust, saronite bars, infinite dust, etc. and then turning around to sell them one at a time without flooding too much. Well there's an interesting item which you can get away with selling in bulk for more than individually.
Not sure if you have this already
Ok so i thought this might be a gold sink but ITS AMAZING for gold (also not sure if you have covered this) My toon yesterday had 2 gold i happened to have the mats to transmute a kings amber. so i get it cut and sell the Rigid King's Amber 200-230 g each on my server so i then bought two epic gems and did the same within 24 hrs im up to 3k gold and have over 30 epic cuts on ah. So if you dont not have a video about Uncut epic gems being turned for prophit it does work great i scan ah and do a search for the uncut epic cardinals zuls ambers ametrines all of em and i purchase uncuts for 100g or less then resell for 55-120 g profit its ridiculous.

Leveling with the dungeon finder means that the gear requirements gap from level 69 to 70 is huge. Regular
69 burning crusade dungeons are totally inferior to their wotlk equivalents.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how pets might disappear with cataclysm but I never thought that whole instances would completely vanish from the game. This has staggering implications if blizzard chooses to allow one of the best mage polymorphs (and rarest) to just stop dropping in the game. This is an item that's already worth 2k gold on most servers, what is it going to become when there's a limited quantity in the world... of warcraft?
How Could Blizzard Ruin this Amazing Oppurtunity?
My name is Matticus, the chief behind World of Matticus. I've been blogging about World of Warcraft for a little over 3 years now. The blog mainly started out as a resource for priests but has increased to encompass a variety of topics including other healers, raiding and management. It's not always easy and I've expanded the crew of writers to offer additional perspectives on those same topics.
2. There are TONS of changes to cataclysm in terms of healing, could you pick one change you're really looking forward to and how it will change the game experience?
Oh lord, I don't know where to start. The entire game is practically changing. For me it would have to be healing in general. We're not topping players from 0 to 100% anymore. The focus has shifted to simply keeping players alive instead of making sure they're at full health. Mana actually matters and I've had to watch mine like a hawk to ensure I don't waste any spells.
NO WAY. I've been running full tilt making hand over fist because so many auctioneers have decided to take a break until cataclysm. I ask them why and they say they're bored or just tired or whatever reason they can come up with. I understand that the content is currently a little slugish and the game is no where near as entertaining as it will be when cataclysm launches, but why not take advantage of a thriving auction house in the mean time?
It pays to be different.
While others are emptying guild banks or taking a break until cataclysm I'm plugging away selling everything I can at insane markups. The farmers are still out there looking for people to buy their goods and new toons are constantly hitting level 80 regardless of whether you take a break or not. Many people are telling you to dump your items now while you still can. I'm saying don't you dare and you better take advantage of those that do!

I'm a fire Mage. A Gnome Fire Mage, not a Goblin, nor a Goblin Fire Mage (although there is a chance I might roll one).
A long time ago, when my time was significantly more limited, I spent a fair bit of time in the AH. The reason was simple, the short amount of time in the AH gave me more bang for my buck, supported most effectively the one 5 hour play session I had each week.
What I really wanted to do was "play the game", you know, kill stuff, rescue the damsels, kill the Horde, raid etc...
I've got friends that log on and go farm herbs, or ore, or whatever. This is a part of their "playing the game". 2 hours, 400 gold, and whatever they can fit in (get into) after.
When I log in, I'm ready to fight. Gear consumables, buffs, even my location. All intended to get me grinding within a couple of minutes.
- Not grinding herbs
- Not grinding Ore
I grind body parts!

else remember?) where anyone with someone to sell would just hang out, shouting their offers in Trade channel. The best part was buyers and sellers trying to find each other among several hundred other characters. Oh..and the fact that you couldn’t move to another zone or log out of the game while you were selling.
That being said, there are times when interacting with other players in
WoW can improve your profits. And to show you how, I’m going to tell you a
story about about a guy called Flaskguy.
Now our hero Flaskguy, you may be surprised to learn, sold flasks (he was
much better at selling flasks than coming up with original names for his
alts). But he didn’t just sell a few flask. Oh no. By the time Flaskguy
was done, he was probably responsible for the vast majority of flask sales
on his server. And part of the way he did this was by actually building
relationships with other players.
Unfortunately I have bit off more than I could chew with my latest attempt to improve JMTC by hiring writers. In the first week since I asked for writers to send me resumes, I have received over 70 well written posts all following my requirements. Just going through these has proven to be a monumental task, let alone categorizing and narrowing them down to the top 20. It didn't end there though, I created a newsletter to help new writers get set up and improve their writing. Next I set up a schedule and method for collecting the articles as well as paying the writers. Days later I looked back and realized that I hadn't even published an article yet and I was already exhausted. Just think about the effort required to manage 20 individual writers besides my own posts and other efforts here at JMTC. It was too much, just days into the thing I had to cancel the entire endeavor. If I hadn't, then I would have ended up eventually stopping my own writing for the blog and just turned into a manager for other bloggers.
Along with time constraints I'm also looking at monetary issues. To hire the writers and pay them the salary I was proposing would have required over $800 a month. On top of all my hosting and services costs this would not have made up for the supposed benefit of adding more content to the site. The time and money was just not worth the estimated benefit.

This is a small guide explaining what to do if you want to become a successful auctioneer on your server, and how to use the Just My Two Copper Forums to do it. I will tell you how to use all the sections on the Forum in order to achieve great sucess in making WoW gold.

The remote auction house application costs $2.99 per month on top of your wow subscription. If you do decide to purchase this feature here are some pointers to help you use it effectively.
There are no addons on the remote auction house so you won’t be posting hundreds of items, in fact, you can’t make more than 200 transactions per day. So what is this good for? Two things: buying cheap goods throughout the day and posting auctions when the competition thinks you are away.
Buying cheap goods is easy. Simply look for deals throughout the day by running searches for various items you’d like to buy. The best times to check are when most people are not on since farmers will be posting but there won’t be enough buyers available and so prices drop. Around 10 AM and 2 PM have proven to be really good buying times although it doesn’t hurt to also check right during lunch time.
Currently in wrath of the lich king you can only craft rare quality pvp gear which is easily replaced by much better quality badges and honor rewards. As more gear was released throughout the expansion the craftable PvP gear value decayed exponentially. Although it is STILL possible to sell the PvP gear for profit on most servers, imagine if it always sold as well as it did at the start of WOTLK. Instead of being semi-frequent sellers for marginal profit, these items will remain in high demand throughout all of Cataclysm.
Short answer: Guild Perks. Long answer...
Experience gained from killing monsters and completing quests increased by 5%.
5% is quite an increase on experience gained, making it all that much easier to level an additional two professions. Since this is the first guild perk there really is no excuse to avoid getting a guild for this alone.
Increases speed while mounted by 5%. Not active in Battlegrounds or Arenas.
The first of several reasons to get into a guild as a gatherer. With the ability to buy 310% speed for your farmers you now can have 315% making it that much easier to fly around azeroth getting the good stuff.
1. Fire Revenants of Stormpeaks
Eternal fires remain the most expensive eternals on most realms, second possibly to eternal lifes and airs on a bad day, doubling their eternal cousins on a good day. Since wintergrasp can be a little hairy for farming these in such a crowded location, I therefore recommend either farming them at the spot in this video or in a cave north of the location. The spawns in the cave are weaker but also drop far less crystallized fires.
When selling eternal fire (if you don’t make use of the eternals for transmutes or other money making endeavors) be sure to break it up into the crystallized version first for additional profit. I can sell crystallized fire one at a time for far more than 1/10th the cost of a eternal fire.
There is a mining node and herb node along the edges of the forge.
When cataclysm arrives the new level requirement for maxing out your professions is going to be level 75. With the current lull in wow content why not level your toons in order to prepare for making tons of gold in cataclysm?
Here are 10 ways to increase the leveling efficiency of your toons...
- 1. Use the best enchants on your bind on account equipment but don't enchant your other gear unless it's with excess materials and you are an enchanter trying to get skill ups.
- 2. When you reach outland and northrend use uncommon quality gems to socket your quest or dungeon rewards.
- 3. Pick at least one trade skill which benefits from the dungeon finder: Enchanting, Mining, Skinning, Herbalism or Tailoring (level 70+ dungeons). Try to keep the tradeskill from falling behind your current dungeons as you level.
- 4. Sell everything you can on the auction house to keep from having to farm or do anything besides leveling.
- 5. Get speed to boots asap on your character.

Are you on an RP server and trying to make some wow gold?
Perhaps you think that it's harder because less people are in high end arenas and raiding?
Well believe it or not I envy you because you can make gold off some of the most ridiculous items which I would struggle to sell consistently on any PVP or PVE server (not saying you shouldn't sell them though if you are as well!). Thankfully quite a few bank alts enjoy the latest fashions even on non RP servers. That being said, the advantage definitely goes to RP servers because they can literally turn gray vendor trash into a ton of gold as there are more buyers and more demand on the RP realms.
