Sell the Clothes off Your Back

“Sell everything that’s not tied down. And if it is tied down, charge extra for the rope” is a famous TGQ saying.

Every gold adds up, and sometimes players go to desperate measures, taking their new toons and characters to the Auction House and selling their starter gear.

These items sell for 1c to a vendor. How much do you think they will sell for on the Auction House?

You might be surprised.

Will this really make you any sizeable amount of steady income? No. Is it funny as hell? Yes. Is it worth trying on a brand new server along will selling things like vendor items and signing guild charters? Absolutely.

Next time some level 1 beggar comes up to you and asks for gold be sure to direct them to the enchanting trainer, the city vendors, or even point to their clothes as a way to make gold.

You’ll be surprised how some will actually be desperate enough to try your advice and then they will be eternally grateful for your help.

If all else fails you can also send them here.

 

Sell the Clothes off Their Back

You can take this idea to the next level on an RP server.

Ask your friend to bring his character/toon with lots of space in his bags to the starter zone.  Then go through the following steps:

  1. Create a toon.
  2. Take off my gear and give it to your friend.
  3. Log off.
  4. Delete your toon.
  5. Create another.
  6. Repeat

Your friend can either put the items on the AH himself, or mail them to your main or bank alt so you can sell them on the AH.

Remember, post one at a time, and keep the spares hidden away.

 

Selling the Clothes off His Back

This is Thomas Yance.

You can find him in the Caverns of Time dungeon “Escape from Durnholde“. He walks between Southshore and Tarren Mill.

He sells unlimited amounts of starter gear.  You no longer need to make multiple level 1 alts.

Using a TSM group, you can apply an operation to buy instantly from the vendor (in this case, Thomas Yance), and instantly fill your bags.

Then, take your bags to the Auction House, instantly sell using the Auctioning operation.

Finally, head to your bank and store your stock.
