I would love to be able to say that I sit down and research for hours on certain ideas to make gold in World of Warcraft. In fact I do look up links and ideas to set up an entry properly. Even to the idea of grammar checking (against popular opinion at times).
Then at times I stumble on something and let my brain expound on what the potential of that idea can be. In this case a thought occured as I was fumbling around Timeless Isle doing some fishing and my daily mob kills.
At this point I was using Oqueue and had been ported over to another realm waiting for the group to come together. When I was running around the main square I saw that Whizzig was up on this server. For some reason I had yet to see the rare in my home realm so I took the opportunity to relieve myself of a few Timeless coins and pick up the glyph they sell.
Having a large amount of timeless coins on my main I double checked on the glyph Technique: Glyph of Shifted Appearances was not BOP. It did surprise me that they hadn't limited the amount you could purchase or make it more difficult to obtain other than waiting for the rare mob to appear.
So I picked up five of them and sent them to my reseller. After dropping one on the AH I had my thoughts drift to another mental conversation that occurred. There are a few other glyphs that are only available via farming either rare mobs (such has Rattleskew and his Technique: Glyph of Skeleton) or the Technique: Glyph of Evaporation that drops from Jademist Dancer).
By now these Techniques have been on the Auction House for weeks and most of the players that are going to purchase them have already added them to their collection. But we have an expansion just over the horizon that in theory many players will be either rolling new scribes or changing professions.
The techniques that were only available in Dalaran still sell relatively well on the AH in comparison to other items. Players enjoy having complete collection of glyphs at their disposal and inscriptions make money by having what items are in demand. So out of the four of the Shifted Appearances glyphs that I purchased I put away three in my rainy day guild bank.
Glyphs aren't the only items that it might be time to put away to resell next expansion pack. Materials that will be useful for leveling professions and BOE upgrades for leveling can be in demand quickly with players rolling alternates.
Keep this in mind when you start measuring items and whether to sell them on the AH now or wait til the next wave of players start to look at buying your products. Profit now or profit later becomes your new mantra
Good Luck and Good Hunting
