5 Things you should be selling: Mining Blues

Gathering professions aren't a dead end when it comes to gold making.   Over and above the running around to gather materials,   mining is also capable of transforming ore and materials into different forms.   Forms that can be sold for good profits to material hungry crafters.

So here are five things you should be selling:.  Mining edition.

1.   [Earth Shatter]

Most gold goblins would identify this as a simple conversion flip.  Take one item at x cost,  convert it to 10 smaller items at x + a premium price.  But there are good reasons that this works.  First people will farm Primal Earth and many times only get between 8 and 10 into their bags.    To finish off the last of that Primal farming,  purchasing one or two motes becomes "cheaper" to them than trying to farm the rest.   [Elemental Blasting Powder] is a major leveling agent and crafting for engineers as well.  This ends up being in high demand and can easily double sales as new engineers are leveled.

2.  [Fire Sunder]

Another of the "convert to smaller items" ideas for gold making.   Fire is much more difficult to farm and ends up being in demand by both engineers and alchemist.   Alchemists use the [Primal Fire] for their [Primal Might] transmutes for sales.    Motes of fire are also used by multiple professions for their crafting. With the ease of leveling that has been introduced in game patches,   many toons do not get leveled in mining rich areas of the burning crusade expansion.  Negrand and higher level areas get skipped in the leveling progression,   so these materials become more and more unavailable on the open market.

3.  [Eternium Bar]

A gathered and smelted item from the Burning crusade expansion.  It's highest profit margins are used by blacksmiths to make [Eternium Rod].   Converting the raw [Eternium Ore] into bars will net a good profit from sales both to blacksmiths and other crafters using the item.  

4.  [Hardened Elementium]

Used in high level crafting during the Cataclysm expansion,   taking 10x [Elementium Bar] and 4x [Volatile Earth] can get large profits from Blacksmiths and Engineers.    Used in both leveling recipes as well as the epic recipes.  These will make the [Hardened Elementium] continue to be in demand even after the Cataclysm expansion has come to an end until we have moved into the panderia expansion.
5.  [Titansteel Bar]

The king of all that a miner can make,  and continuing into the end of the Cataclysm expansion on,  will continue to be in high demand.   For one reason.   The [Mechano-Hog] (and the [Mekgineer's Chopper] for the alliance) is going to be in continuous demand.    3x  Titanium,  1x Eternal Fire,  1x Eternal Earth and 1 Eternal Shadow.   All three of these materials found during the Wrath of the lich king expansion have become rarer.   Making the titansteel bar becoming more profitable.   Look for this to continue as the Motorcycle mounts become in high demand for new toons during Mists of Panderia.

Ores and converting into bars will continue to be a gold venture as more and more toons are leveled.   Keeping an eye on the market and filling in gaps in demand based selling can bring in more gold to both the novice and advanced goblin.

Good luck and good hunting
