Three Zephyrites in a Stack

The end of a long day working on my new blog design/theme (pink and girly!) and in the Auction House.  Due to the Cataclysm Obsidium Shuffle my poor alt’s bags were heaving with gems, and I ended up buying a new guild bank tab to store all the gems that I prospected. Today’s jewelcrafting daily was […]

JMTC Blogging Carnival: How to make gold with limited play time?

Time is Money Friend This post has been written for the monthly JMTC Blogging Carnival. This month’s topic is: How would you make gold if you had limited play time? Time is money friend, and whilst we can make virtually unlimited virtual gold in World of Warcraft, time is something we cannot reproduce, trade, buy, watch, or […]

This is an addon called “my sales“.  You can find it here: http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/mysales.aspx Recommended addon. Just download it and browse with /ms Nothing flashy, it just works.


Time is Money friend

How many times have we heard this, or used this phrase to reply to someone who wondered how much gold we  could make and which is the best way? Time management is integral to making gold, basically because we want to maximise our gold per hour, our bang-per-buck. Our first lesson is, as Player Vs […]


Snatch List

As well as Obsidium Ore on your snatch/search list, you should add the following:   Cut Hessonites, Zephyrites and Alicites for less than 9g Stacks of bandages under vendor prices Frozen Orbs Under 5g – Dont vendor these, trade them in Dalaran for Arctic Fur or Eternal Fire depending on the prices and supply. <-still […]

Obsidium Ore

The Obsidium Ore Shuffle It’s been blogged about all across the gold-making community, and any self-respecting gold maker has already at least wondered what the impact on the cost of ore should be now that they have noticed that cut uncommon cataclysm gems vendor for 9g. That’s the cut Alicite, Carnelian, Hessonite, Jasper, Nightstone and Zephyrite. […]

Dalaran is the new Exodar

Use Dalaran to Access the WoW Auction House I want to share with you an observation I’ve discovered.  I’ve writted “Dalaran is the new Exodar” as the title, and for anyone who chats to me regularly, you’ll know that my bankalts were previously parked in the Exodar for access to the Auction House. The Exodar […]

Happy Volatile Christmas!

Farming Volatiles A little change from the usual boasting about my Auction House buying/selling. The new Volatile Air, Volatile Earth, Volatile Fire and Volatile Water have quickly become staples in both the crafting market and in the buying and selling trades.   If you want to take a break from the Auction House, here is […]

My canaries are singing

My World of Warcraft Auction House Canaries are Singing. A surprise profit from Cataclysm – GLYPHS! Yes, you read that right, Glyphs! One of the side effects of player’s focus on Cataclysm, and the new Cataclysm items is their complete neglect of other items. I have been dropping some ‘canary’ items into the AH, which […]


World of Warcraft Cataclysm Cataclysm has brought good and bad news for gold-makers in the auction house game. I pre-bought a dozen Savoury Deviate Delight recipes just under 1,000g each, only for them to become a common drop worth 30g, not the rarer 5-6,000g I hoped. Also you should *stop buying* runecloth, which was previously […]

From the Daily Blink

http://www.thedailyblink.com/2010/11/mage-monopoly/ The removal of portals in Dalaran created a sudden surge in demand for portals from mages. [box type=”info”] “But all of that has now paled in comparison to the vital and lucrative role that mages find themselves in now, making thousands of gold offering transportation out of Dalaran for travelers. Numbers estimate that Blizzard […]
