Saturday is one of the days that is set aside for raiding with my Guild. We are the definition of casual in the idea that we only get together one day out of the week to do an organized raid. Other days we are on our own to pick up runs to gear up, play around in different groups or just relax and finish up dailies. Where it is enjoyable it also means we probably won't be on the progression list that high anymore.
Part of my job here is part cheerleader (no you cannot look up my skirt), part wow financial 'guru' and a part humorist. Most of my guild members know that I write for this journal and occasionally I get some flack for doing it. Stick and stones and such, assuming they are not epic sticks and stones because those tend to hurt.
One thing that my guild members have gotten to be is very self sufficient. Having many of them been playing this game for years they have almost all have multiple toons with multiple professions. With extra gold reserves they also have the ability to buy what they want if they cannot craft it themselves. This can be both a blessing and a curse.
So from that large buildup came last night's run. We did a flex run and finished up the first four bosses in Seige of Orgrimmar. As we progressed, players received their loot which of course excited some and irritated others. A couple of my guilders wanted to equip the items immediately but wanted to enchant the items first. So on a break they jotted over to the local auction house to pick up the required enchant.
One of the things that I"ve kept up on is the current professions for most of the guilders that I run with or spend time with. So I knew that one of the players on the run was an enchanter. With the access to both personal and guild banks being readily available (guild perk + Argent Gruntling for the win). The guilder popped up to his stash, grabbed an extra enchant and offered it to the fellow guilder for free. This may seem very strange to many because many guild charge each other for these type of services. That has never been the way that we run when it comes to professions.
But one thing that can be taken away from this is to always be prepared for a sale. I have said it many times you never know when you can make a sale. You cannot carry every enchant with you wherever you go. But you can easily carry the materials in your bag for one or two weapon enchants. As a leatherworker you should always have a stack of Magnificent Hide to craft a new armor patch for a player.
A gold goblin never stops hustling when it comes to being prepared. In today's game there are more and more players learning how to make gold. This spreads out the opportunities to everyone to make gold in the strangest of places. Keeping your eyes open and ready can add more profit to your portfolio.
Good Luck and Good Hunting
