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.


Companions and Pets available to buy with Apexis Crystals

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 like me, and have collected the apexis crystals with no real plan on how to use them, you can follow Recklez’ advice and buy battle pets/companions 


How to sell the Pets


Auctionator Shopping List
*** apexis crystal pets
Bone wasp
Forest sproutling
Draenei Micro Defender
Frostwolf Pup
Albino River Calf
Sky Fry
Son of Sethe


Cut and paste this into your Auctionator Import Window


Your Auctionator Window will then be able to search for all those pets.


Today’s prices on my server range from 2,800g, up to 9,999g, and further to “not available on the auction house” which means you can set your own price.

Please note that it’s not as easy to make a TSM shopping list as the unlearned (BoP) pets are not the same as the learned and crated ones, for databases.  Blizzard *shrugs* go figure.

I used to be really good at finding and selling companion small pets before Blizzard introduced the pet battle system and changed everything around.  Now, even though I have been out of the loop on battle pet selling, I can see that this is a great way to turn spare crystals into lovely gold for WoW Tokens.  I know you need to have the reputation, but that can be grindable, especially with a friend or two.

Please be careful not to flood your market, the pets will lose their value if their perceived scarcity is destroyed by you flooding the market.  Go careful, post one at a time.

[box type=”warning”] Only post one of each pet at a time. [/box]

Faction Only Pets

Finally, I would remind you that the best sellers are going to be those not available to the opposite faction, especially on lopsided faction servers, with more horde or more alliance.  Just like the Argent Tournament pets.  Wait… did I just subtly remind you to go do your Argent Tournament dailies?



Auction created for Draenei Micro Defender 12000g.

    I know where the Frostwolf pup comes from, but what about the others?

    This is an interesting guide, thank you! I am so excited to see you back. I missed your posts. 🙂

      Heya, you can buy them with Apexis Crystals from the reputation vendors. Look especially in your faction city in Ashran.
