Building a 30,000g Passive Income with Inscription – Part 3

Posted by on 25 Apr 2015 in Auction House, guild banks, Inscription, Trade Skill Master | 2 comments

Building a 30,000g Passive Income with Inscription – Part 3 We’ve moved through the part where we learn to make glyphs, and now we move to the Complicated Part where we need the assistance of Trade Skill Master addon. WARNING: IMAGE INTENSIVE POST. Click image for larger image with greater detail. Important images are already blown up full size.   Why Trade Skill Master? TSM is used simply to automate, to make easy and quicker, that which we could do on our own.  So in order to give the commands to TSM, we need to work out...

Why 12,000g per hour is Absolute Bulls**t

Posted by on 19 Apr 2015 in Auction House, economy, Farming | 0 comments

Why 12,000g per hour is absolute, er, rubbish. Recently I posted how you can “make 12,000g per hour in Shadowmoon Valley“.  Today I’m here to tell you that this is a load of boll*cks.  Why is that?   1) Drop rate is dependant on RNG.  You will not get the same number as me, and I won’t get the same amount as someone else.  It’s random.  You can only guesstimate a rough figure based on how fast you kill and how long you farm for. 2) Sell rate is dependant on buyers.  Buyers don’t want the item? It...

Building a 30,000g Passive Income with Inscription – Part 2

Posted by on 18 Apr 2015 in Auction House, guild banks, Inscription, Trade Skill Master | 0 comments

Building a 30,000g Passive Income with Inscription – Part 2 Getting your Scribe I started without a scribe, but I had a character on my old server. So the first thing I did was transfer my scribe over from my old gold-making server to my current home. Character transfer cost me £17.   A server transfer comes with a limit of 50,000g but my character only had about 3,000g.  I had invested heavily in herbs, crafted glyphs, and let the auctions expire and not picked them up from the AH.  So I had no herbs, an occasional glyph in my...

Posted by on 12 Apr 2015 in Auctionator | 2 comments

Turning Apexis Crystals into Gold Learned from Reckles of the Your WoW Money podcast Hi guys, just a short post from me today to share what I learned about Apexis Crystals.  The Your WoW Money podcast recommended turning your crystals into companions/battle pets and selling them on the Auction House. How to get Apexis Crystals Great guide from Wowhead on farming/obtaining apexis crystals. The crystals that I own were mostly gained from the Town Hall daily quests and a small amount from the buildings around my garrison. But if you’re...

What is a Long Tail Alt?

Posted by on 8 Apr 2015 in AH, AH PvP, Auction House, Competitors | 2 comments

A Long Tail Alt is the New Bank Alt New Bank Alt Readers who have also seen my stream at twitch.tv/thegoldqueen will have noticed I spend a few hours per week on what looks like a mid level bank alt. I recommend you do not have a bank alt, especially not wearing bank alt clothes/armor.  Having a level 1 alt immediately rouses suspicion from a potential buyer, who is slightly more likely to buy from what they think is a “Normal Regular Player” rather than a dodgy looking level 1 called “Marksbank” wearing a tuxedo. This...

What Does That Mean?

Posted by on 5 Apr 2015 in Beginners, flipping, Shuffle | 0 comments

What is Flipping? Flipping means to buy low, sell high.  You purchase one item or many, either in the Auction House or through trading direct to another player.  Then you ‘flip’ that item around by putting it back where you bought it, but for a higher price, and earning gold from this work.   What is a Shuffle? In World of Warcraft, a “shuffle” is when you transform one item into another, aiming to add value.  For example, buying ore, and creating jewellery. The best shuffle is moving one item into another...

How to be a Great Gold Maker

Posted by on 31 Mar 2015 in Beginners | 0 comments

Great Gold Makers and Auctioneers on World of Warcraft We all have some certain things in common We hate spending We hoard We like to do many things at the same time.  Auctioning *and* farming *and* streaming? yes please We hate leaving things on the ground.  We get irritated when we fly past a herb or mine node and aren’t on the right gathering character. We never sit around in the cities just having a chat. Time is money, friend. We have a piggy bank character that keeps hold of our gold so we don’t spend it.   About the...

Burning Crusade Epic Gems for Profit

Posted by on 29 Mar 2015 in Advertising, Auctionator, Jewelcrafting, Snatch Lists, Trade Skill Master | 0 comments

Burning Crusade Epic Gems for Profit Why buy the old gems? 6.1 brought new battle pets into Sunwell Plateau, Black Temple and Hyjal Summit (raid not zone). A new raid collection achievement was added to encourage pet collecting in TBC raids. As experienced gold makers know, more people in old raids means more cheap greens in the Auction House, and more gems being “thrown away” into the AH.   TSM Import String 32227,32228,32229,32230,32249,32231   Auctionator Import String *** TBC Epic Gems Crimson Spinel Empyrean...

Bid on the Auction House when the Server is about to go into Maintenance

Posted by on 28 Mar 2015 in Auction House, Auctionator, Trade Skill Master, WoWuction | 0 comments

Bid on the WoW Auction House Server Maintenance is once a week, 03:00 early Wednesday morning in the EU, and 3am PST early Tuesday morning for North American servers.   Why Bid? Bids are almost a leftover from the days when the Auction House times were 30m, 2h and 6h (or is my memory failing me? I’m getting old!) and bidding was encouraged on items, rather than buyouts. Players would often engage in bidding wars, similar to eBay, with only a short period of time in which to make increasing bids for a wanted item. Now that the...

What is the Copper Rod Squad?

Posted by on 23 Mar 2015 in Auction House, Beginners, flipping | 7 comments

What is the Copper Rod Squad A group of world of warcraft players who laugh with each other about selling vendor-bought items at higher prices on the WoW Auction house. This is known as flipping, or buy low sell high. When you buy from a vendor, it’s buy extremely low, sell high enough to have a laugh. It’s enough to make you a few gold, hundreds rather than thousands unless you’re determined to make a career out of it. It’s a great way to start off making gold if you are either a new player or created a new character...

Should I Vendor or Disenchant my Greens? Part 2

Posted by on 22 Mar 2015 in Auction House, Trade Skill Master | 5 comments

How to Post Your Junk Greens on the Auction House (without tearing your hair out) Following on from the last blog post, you almost certainly discovered an enormous pile of potential sellers from your garrison Salvage Crates, and from picking up loot in the world and in dungeons as you level your alt/s. The first step to the proper Care and Feeding of your greenies, is to select an alt with big bags to look after them all.  Get into the habit of mailing your greenies to this character. Collect them all together so they can be dealt with. Here,...

Should I Vendor or Disenchant my Greens? Part 1

Posted by on 21 Mar 2015 in Beginners, Tips, Trade Skill Master | 0 comments

Vendor Your Uncommon Green Items? There is a running joke at the moment with other gold makers and gold farmers that you should never vendor your greens.  But I want to show you the exception to that rule. I’m going to show you the easy way to choose whether you should Vendor, Disenchant, or Sell on the Auction House. Once you have TSM installed, and the databases populated either with TSM Desktop App, or with a Full Scan of the AH, you will be able to mouseover your item and see a comparable set of values in the improved tooltip....

How to Deal with your World of Warcraft AH Competitors

Posted by on 17 Mar 2015 in ethics, Undercutting | 0 comments

How to deal with competitors Remember – your competitors are also your (potential) customers. If they have gold, it’s ok, they can then buy your things. It’s ok for them to get gold as well as you.  Their richness does not harm or threaten you.   You have the following options Undercut them. This could mean much cancelling and reposting, and lower profit. Overcut them.  This is my version of “buy low, sell high” but without doing the buy low myself, allowing someone else to do the buy low part.  Simply wait...
