Never Stand around in the city.  You’re making zero gold per hour. Never buy something you can craft for less. Or your mate can. Waste time arguing with trolls. Undercut unless you want to sell at that price. Throw your gold away. Complete the Auction House module in your garrison. When you do, parts will stop dropping. Parts you can sell. Become stuck in your ways. Farmer? Learn to AH.  AHer? Learn to farm.  Neither? Get off your butt. Leave items to rot in your personal or guild bank/s. Ignore an opportunity. Leave herbs unpicked, ore...

Sumptuous Fur

Posted by on 26 Feb 2015 in featured, Tips | 0 comments

Patch 6.1 Sumptuous Fur Patch 6.1 has been awesome for my Sumptuous Fur sales. I typically buy them for 1-2g on the Auction House with the aim of reselling them for 3-4g.  Some days only a few will sell. Today, they are selling very well.   Overcutting / Undercutting on the Auction House This is my classic overcutting style, which is the opposite of undercutting on the auction house which you may have learned. A twitch user was trying to troll me yesterday saying he/she knew which server I played and that they were undercutting me on...

Always Make sure all your followers and your alts’ followers are busy with a garrison mission. Ensure your assets are available for purchase on the Auction House. Post regularly. Cancel and repost. Treat your competitors and buyers with the same respect.  Competitors are also buyers. Make use of your guild. Think long term.  Transmog items in particular can take months to sell. Read blogs, listen to podcasts, watch youtube and twitch. You can never learn too much. Run old dungeons. Revisit old zones for rares loot and patterns. Abuse...

Daily Gold Cheat Sheet

Posted by on 22 Feb 2015 in Beginners, Blog, Quick | 0 comments

Dailies were nerfed in Warlords of Draenor but there are still a series of steps to take every day in order to maximise your gold income.  From managing your garrisons, farming those mines/gardens, to running a quick heroic, and re-crafting sold-out potions to replace your stock on the Auction House.   The faster you can get these done, in the most time efficient manner, without forgetting the steps, then the more gold you can make in World of Warcraft. As a girl with a bad memory, I wrote myself a Gold Cheat Sheet to remind me which things...

World of Warcraft Spectral Tiger Duping Hack

Posted by on 15 Feb 2015 in featured, Hacks and Illegals | 1 comment

Spectral Tiger Duping As a known gold maker on my realm, I became aware of Something Strange happening with Swift Spectral Tiger mounts in the middle of January 2015.  Where once Spectral Tigers were rare, the numbers appearing on the AH began to double, treble, and continue to increase, together with an interesting rise in level 1 characters selling them directly or in trade chat.   Guild mates and other gold makers and gold farmers asked my opinion, so I started to research for duping.   Swift Spectral Tiger or Magic Rooster Spectral...

Good Morning Azeroth

Shall I bring the Gold Queen back? Hey, I miss you.  I wondered if you might be missing me too. I’ve been quietly playing WoW since Jan 2013, pugging alone then finding a guild, fiddling with the WoW auction houses and then unable to resist the urge to own them.  I’ve been leveling up alts, building garrisons, ensuring all my professions work with each other.  I did my usual new expansion trick of spending all my gold before the end of the expansion, starting from zero and racing myself to gold cap again. It’s been a while...

Who was the the gold queen?

Posted by on 25 Jun 2013 in Tips | 21 comments

The gold queen was the pen name of a player on 3 EU servers 2005-2012 who subtly, elegantly owned the auction house.  Starting from a position of zero, she accidentally then purposefully controlled the economy of one small RP server, and moved to the big boys, one of the  largest servers in Europe. At the time of her disappearance, she owned 1/4 of all the goods that moved through the server.   Where is the gold queen? She is in the stock market, in the real gold exchange markets, and on Facebook supporting other mothers of autistic...

A selection of examples of two very different types of items to sell on the AH.   Big Ticket Items for AH Big Ticket items cost a fortune to buy, or you need a lot of luck.

Posted by on 25 Oct 2012 in Advanced Gold Making | 10 comments

What is Burn Out? Burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed and unable to meet constant demands.

Both can be easily farmed next to each other, thousand needles for sungrass and in ungoro crater at fungal rock for the ghost mushroom.  In around 10 minutes had a stack of each I...

Secret Gold Makers Farming Spot Discovered by Public Damn it and double damn it. My secret farming spot was discovered by the public on my server today. It’s not exactly a hidden location, but the drops, respawn, and weakness of the mobs was my special pride. As I was passing today on one of my alts, a skinner/miner gatherer, I discovered my secret was out! Hundreds of dead turtles lying in my favourite farming spot.    Wyrmhorn Turtle Why farm them?

Ink Trader Preparing to Change His Prices

Posted by on 9 Oct 2012 in Inscription | Comments Off

Blackfallow Ink Buy Ink of Dreams now Tip for Scribes from Dale of Shattered Hand (EU) Just a little tip from my own server. Many people obviously haven’t read that the Ink vendor will be switching back to Ink of Dreams for ink buying again soon (next week?). Currently, Ink of dreams sell for under 2g each on my server. I have bought over 4000 of them at this price, and will be able to either exchange them for Starlight inks to make darkmoon cards, or use them for making glyphs really cheaply. Buy them now, and stock up for when the...
