Mists of Pandaria Prep at the Gold Queen site

Latest site updates


Daily Gold Cheat Sheet Updated

We’ve updated the Daily Gold Cheat Sheet to a Mists of Pandaria version.  You should now be prompted to do your Tillers dailies instead of going to the Molten Front, for instance. If you’re not on the list to get a free copy of this, just send me your email address in the form underneath.

Pet Shop Guide

We’ve withdrawn the Pet Shop Guide ebook from sale. This is because we need to do a complete overhaul of where to get pets, which pets sell well, and how to have some fun with your battle pets.

Pets values will become volatile as many pets flood the market in 5.04, however patience and tenacity will see you through as the demand will continue to exist and grow over the coming months. Do not be frightened to buy pet bargains in this time.  Don’t panic sell, either.

Pet values will also be affected by rarity and by their effectiveness and perceived effectiveness in battles, rather than just visuals.

    This post confuses me a bit, since I’ve no idea what guide you guys are talking about. What is “Daily Gold Cheat Sheet”? Is it accessible from this site? If so, I cant find it :(. I sent my email request for the sheet yesterday by using the ‘yellow’ form, but perhaps I should have used the ‘purple’ one to the right? Or are they the same? And the guide – is it a paid guide? I already bought your vendor recipes guide some time ago, but I’m guessing thats something totally different, and if the price is comparable I would buy it as well.

      Hi Solshine,
      you will automatically be emailed a copy of the Daily Gold Cheat Sheet, which is my freebie for joining the regular news list, when you let me know your email address. You can use any of the forms to let me know where to send it.

      Are you possibly mixing me up with Faid’s excellent limited supply guides?

      I aim to get at least 80% of my stuff out for free, through blog posts and giveaways.
      To get the full 100%, in a nice neat format, that’s where I usually charge for my time.
      I hope that seems fair to you.

    your guides are awesome! I’m sitting on a huge inventory atm my horde side slowed down to a crawl so I been taking advantage of the alliance side with neutral ah to transfer over alot of my product. made almost 80k over there and plan on bringing it back in mists. i think this is a good way to dump some inventory and sometimes control 2 factions. but this is tricky and u can get burned if not done correctly to be careful and good luck 🙂

      Heya, Bullfreak! I play both sides of my server, too. I have two WoW accounts, and take advantage of the Remote AH: Open two browsers, one for each account, set up the auction with one and a search for the item I’m swapping with the other, then go back to the first to post the auction and quickly Alt-Tab over to the other, click “Browse” and buy it out. Unless there’s a bot watching the AH, it’s next to impossible for anyone else to be quick enough to catch me! At least, I haven’t been burned yet.

        It’s not just bots that can quickly snatch things on the neutral AH.
        A rival auction house player with Auctioneer RealTimeSearch set up properly can grab something within seconds.
        Before you go to a neutral AH check
        who is in booty bay. everlook, gadgetzan.
        who is stood next to the auction house npcs (and there are more npcs than you think!)
        finally, list the item for a reasonable price. A price you wouldn’t mind receiving if the worst happened and someone did manage to snatch it in that 2 second window of opportunity before you do it yourself.

        Personally I cheat, by playing on a server with a huge faction imbalance, so I only go to the neutral AH occasionally!

    Got the updated list, and am looking forward to see how this Battle pets thing plays out. Been stockpiling where I can, but I’m finding it hard to get extra liquid this close to the end of the expansion, so I’m continually tempted to sell off some of my stockpile. It’s a never-ending cycle, and I’m just mad at m’self for waiting so long to get started!

    Otherwise, I love the site, and it’s one of the tabs I *always* open when I first pull up my browser of choice. Looking forward to more!

      Hi Knand.

      Keep trying to sell. Pet sales will go crazy mental in 2-3 weeks time. I’m hoping that readers will have enough strength to push through the other side of the mess to start making profit again. I know you can, but do you think the others will? I worry.

      There’s two ideas I’m messing with at the moment, which is stockpiling, preparing to spring, like a desert leopard (is there such thing as a desert leopard? and if so, does it eat desserts?) Or getting rid, selling everything, and surviving on your wits, and knowing your greatest assets are your intelligence, tenacity, flexibility and focus.

      Let me know what happens with you? in fact, drop me an email?
