The World of Warcraft auction house is a vibrant moving entity of its own. Players have become attached to the idea of needing specific items for their collection. Whether it's the best raiding gear
or knick knacks for personal vanity.
The buying and selling of these items or 'Flipping' have become a very necessary plank for gold goblin riches. Looking for values and deals that can be bought and resold for large profits has become an unofficial profession of it's own. It has become even more important in the lean times that have covered over the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
A large part in Flipping is based on need. Determining what your server is wanting and desiring becomes your key to being successful at flipping items. Is your server a strong raiding server? Then epic gems and patterns would be a key item to look to obtain gold from. Does your server Role play often? Then Transmog gear becomes the selling point to your riches. Do you have a large amount of collectors that hover over the auction house looking for rare pets and mounts?
We've preached here at JMTC central that the key to success if knowledge. If you do not know your target audience then you will end up stumbling in the hopes of finding the random dollar. Knowledge allows you to print your own money.
Taking advantage of your time and your knowledge will reveal what should be flipped for a profit. Whether it's that batch of 10 Primal Diamonds that someone posted up. Or that piece of 90 raid gear someone posted up for sale at too low of a price.
Flipping isn't just about big ticket items either. Small profits add up to big profits. Raw food materials will become more and more important as raiding begins. Players will be looking to buy stocks of fish and meat to craft their specific needs. Anything in demand can be flipped for profits.
It is finding that pressure point of players needs that puts you ahead of the gold goblin game.
So look at the needs of your server, and then plan ahead on what your next flip item might be. Then you will find that printing press of auction house success and print your own gold.
Good Luck and Good Hunting
