It's the Day after Deathwing
And all through the Auction House
People scurry to deal gems
Enchants arriving on their new shiny mounts
With gold on their mind
And a guide in their hand
Did they have enough volatiles
To find the gold promised land
Holy **** I ran out of dust
could be heard with a sob
anguished cries of rage
when undercut on a new pvp fob
Were you able to declare victory?
Or watch in anguished shame
When patch day hits
Making gold is the only game
On every patch day there is a rush to be the first to post your items. To set the prices and to get
the most gold. One of the most forgotten ideas of the auction house is that selling is a marathon and
not a sprint.
With so many options in multiple crafting disciplines, it will be difficult to know exactly where to put your effort in. TSM and other addons make it easier to post quickly. But your skill is going to be what pushes your gold making to new heights.
Did you buy the big 3 epic cut patterns? But ignore your PVP trinkets being upgraded and available for sale.
Did you look at the new upgrades for your Leatherworker and Blacksmith? Those PVP patterns have a
short maximum profit shelf life before they start to drift lower and lowerin price. Armor patches are always in demand as well. Which will be more profitable? Did you check for the price on pristine hides on the market and instead of using your Heavy Savage leather, purchase the hides directly? Did you look at buying up the Chaos orbs on your server and produce Firelands epics? Good quick way to use up a lot of the truegold that you have stashed, plus allowing you to still make a tidy profit.
Enchanters, how many of the big 7 (lavawalker, peerless stats, landslide, power torrent, agility to bracer, intellect to bracer, strength to bracer) did you have crafted? Did you save your maelstrom crystals instead of splitting them into heavenly shards?
How about your alchemist? Ready to transmute those inferno gems? Or crafting potions and flasks for the final run on deathwing? Don't forget your elemental transmutes. Not everyone will be wanting to stack epic gems into their armor from the start.
Did you remember to stock up on Lion's ink? Inscription gets some new priest glyph loving. Will you win the battle of the scribes?
One of the biggest ideas to remember is that you will end up with more players this weekend that on
patch day. So don't blow all of your inventory now. Hold out to see where the market ends up
landing come friday night. You might find the difference between a medium profit, and a large profit.
Did you earn enough money for the t-shirt and the right to claim victory?
Deathwing? Forget him, I've got more stuff to sell
