There is nothing from the Gold Goblin tool box that beats experience. From the upside of getting a big score for a sale, to the downside of an investment gone horribly wrong.
To get that experience takes a combination of trial and error. The reality is that as a starting Gold Goblin you will make mistakes. You will at some point sell an item for less than you put in to craft it. You will get a rare drop that will sell for much less than someone would have bought it.
How do I know this? Simply from experience. In my own personal Gold Goblin career I have made every mistake in the book as well. A valuable lesson was learned with each mistake. Learning from your mistakes is a major key in becoming a stronger and wiser Gold Goblin.
As you go start through your weekend of crafting, farming, flipping and selling. Be prepared to learn from both your successes and your failures. And each time you pounce on someone Else's mistake, remember that hopefully that is an error that you won't ever repeat.
There are 5 mistakes that Gold Goblins make:
1. Underselling a valuable item
2. Crafting at a loss
3. Mismanagement of inventory
4. Loss of a sale due to motivation
5. Forgetting to read every day JMTC (okay, had to throw in a plug there)
All of these are self explanatory. They all involve staying on top of your game and sharpening your skills. Take chances, learn from your mistakes and always have fun. It is a game you know.
Good Luck and Good Hunting
