  1. Tip 401: Surf to the JMTC forums ;-)

  2. I like this post. Sometimes it's so helpful to scan back over past wisdom...there's just so much information out there about gold-making strategies that it's easy to forget techniques or niche markets or even just the basics. It's good to get those reminders about things that I can easily include in my routine.

    Nice compilation!

  3. The two most important ones are
    1) 22 steps to auctioneer
    2) 17 steps to QuickAuctions

    Markco also suggested don't drop a profession , level another character..

    When I first started reading JMTC I had 60k gold.

    Now I have 2.5 million gold and I dominate both factions on my server.

  4. Thanks for the huge list.. I think I might get busy for a month or two.
