If nothing goes wrong we will all be hip deep in Patch 5.2 glory tomorrow. Lots of new toys and places to look at. Lots of opportunities to invest in materials for the massive upgrade rush.
Keep in mind that investment and sales will be a marathon and not a sprint. Yes it is nice to be the first one to drop something on the market. But there will be many players across many servers having these same thoughts. Setting the price sky high, then watching your newly selling treasure be overrun by the floods of
Staying disciplined in your sales techniques will get you high on the pile of gold instead of falling under the avalanche. If the Auction House is flooded by sales, look to bark in trade for your sales. Everyone announcing all of their goodies as they dance on the mailbox in Stormwind? Then drop some on the auction house for sales. Those first two hours after the servers come live will be both exciting as well as very volatile.
Take a few minutes while the patch is downloading and installing to size up your strategy. Will you be farming for the new recipes first? Or crafting and manufacturing? Reselling that sizable stockpile of Ghost iron ore and leathers?
How you come prepared to the dance is just as important as what you have to offer. The other thing is that, and I know this will come as a shock, there are many many many non sales things to do with this patch. The new scenerios, new lands to conquer, new rares. Keep an eye on what tickles your interest and go for it.
Marathon, not a sprint. And make sure to enjoy the new patch.
Good Luck and Good Hunting
