Five Cheap Items That You Should Sell For Battle For Azeroth

The closer we get to the opening sequence for Battle for Azeroth the more players
clear out their banks for new items.

Not all items are useless.  Some of these items will be in higher demand during the expansion

1.   Potion of Prolonged Power



Each expansion has more and more powerful potions/elixirs and Flasks.  This was one of the most powerful
burst dps items used in raiding.
At 8-10g per server these can be expected to go much higher once Battle For Azeroth gets started and players enter dungeons.


2.  Goblin Glider Kit


For the past 2 patches we have enjoyed being able to fly just about everywhere in the Warcraft worlds.  But as always,  new expansion means that all of our flying mounts become ground mounts until a later patch.



With large amounts of land to cover with many quests wanting the player to get from one side of the map to the other,  The Goblin Glider kits could become very valuable for travelling needs.

3. Gnomish Army Knife



Now most players will often run to get their first ‘tools’ from the vendor and never think twice about it.
it’s only 50c or so.  But if you have more than one profession then you’re filling up two slots in your bag.
These items tend to go in sales bursts as players discover them.


















The other benefit is that you quickly get that +10 boost to your three basic gathering professions.

4.  Netherweave Bags



Currently the extra large (30 slot) bags go from between 1800-2400g per server.   That leaves a pretty big
deficit for new or returning players who have 12 bag slots (8 personal bank + 4 travelling bags) to fill
on new characters.

Smaller bags will be in higher demand.   Netherweave bags (16 slots) are
going on many servers for as little as 13g per bag.

With less than half of that in the cost of materials this can be a market that explodes very quickly
as a tailor and also flipping the bags that are inexpensive right now.



5.  Thermal Anvil



This is one of those items that most players don’t realize that they need it until it’s not there.



Crafting anvils are few and far between in the general questing areas for Battle For Azeroth.
In fact even in the major cities they can be frustrating to find.   But this can be a very popular item
to pop out when you need to do some major crafting.  Combined with your Brutosaur Mount you will
have a nice one two punch of being able to craft and then send the items to be shredded by your
other alts.



Savory Deviate Delight



When you first start out the character that your seeing is impressive.  But after 10 levels of looking at their backside it gets
a little old.

This item transforms you randomly into either a pirate or a ninja.   The pattern used to be rare but seems to drop frequently in the Barrens area anymore.  Still both the pattern and the crafted item can have it’s tendency to be valuable to players who want to roleplay their favorite Shinobi or Captain Sparrow


What other inexpensive or cheap items do you think will sell during the Battle for Azeroth expansion?
Which one of these will explode in profits as players discover new territory and new uses.

About The Gold Dragon

The Gold Dragon is part of The Gold Queen’s “royal” court.  He began making gold his way in Azeroth 8+ years ago. Soon he took his menagerie of crafters and gatherers all the way to the legion HQ and beyond.  I’ve always believed in helping people if they ask and showing people that you do not have to be a Goblin Engineer to make gold in World of Warcraft. Many of the lessons I’ve learned in obtaining gold in WoW I’ve also adapted to my personal life. I have gained and spent over 8 million gold. Spending on personal items and helping my guildmates. Dancing on Azerothian mailboxes for gold tips is just a hobby.  I believe that everyone can make gold if they want to!

    Still selling my Netherweave Bags for around 250G, and they are the most expensive on my Auction House!! My theory is, since the Auction House is so slow these days and people are lazy, they just go ahead and buy the first ones. So i end up turning a 2-3g investment into a 250g +- profit!!
    Remember that people are still going to level up they’re new trolls/dwarfs once they reach exalted on they’re new factions, so i believe these will only get better!
    Also, if you go farm for embersilk cloth for the embersilk bags, they’re currently around 900-1000g, so you can make a nice profit on those as well!!

      Thanks for the comment.

      There are many investments that can and will still bring in a large amount of gold in the AH. In the next weeks
      we’ll be bringing out more and more of them to spur people to not just look at current crafting items but also
      older items such as the bags you commented on.

      There is a balance of looking at old crafts and new crafts that will allow players to make it through any peaks and flows
      of AH dominance.

      Thanks for the comment

    Not necessarily a cheap item, but my Engineers saw a lot of interest in the Mechano-Hog (Horde) and Mekingeer’s Chopper (Alliance) mount around the beginning of the last two expansions. These are the two-person epic choppers from Wrath. The get a lot of pre-expansion interest, though, as they support questing with a friend while not being an overly large mount. The fact that it is a ground mount is not an issue until flying opens up.

      thanks for the comment.

      I agree with the Mechano-hog or the chopper being a high ticket/high sale item.

      I’m already planning on dedicating an article on the mounts that will be valuable to be able to craft in BFA
      from previous expansions.

      My goal was to show ‘cheap’ objects that I do believe will be able to both useful and also flip during the expansion.
      Most of these items are pretty cheap on the AH because people have long forgotten them. Like the glider once people see
      the network of flight paths they will want to break that out and fly across everything quickly.

      Thanks again for the comment.
