Gold Queen’s BfA Prep Advice

It’s nearly expansion time!

Time to stock up on items that will rise in price, and dump all the old things that will no longer of any use.



Items to Dump for Battle for Azeroth

Bear Tartare and Fighter Chow. Nerfed

Hexweave bags

They will be useful in the first few months of the expansion, but will be replaced by a new bag in BfA crafted by tailors. Keep selling for now.


Golden Draenite

Stockpile [Iceweb Spidersilk] instead. More on that in this old blog post


Items for Stockpile for Battle for Azeroth

Goblin Gliders

Getting from the top of the Horde starting area pyramid without a flying mount is a pain.  You’re going to want to sell these.





Coalfist Gronnling is on its way back up, slowly.

Mounts available from over 6 months+ Grumpus, and Spring Strider.

Steelbound Devourer (Steelbound Harness)

Sky Golem

Vial of the Sands

Panther mounts

+ materials for these mounts:

Trillium ore, Living Steel, Truegold, Pyrium, Motes of harmony, Volatile Fire, Volatile Water


Toys from Tanaan Jungle in Warlords of Draenor

Crashin’ Thrashin’ Cannon Controller, Gondar

Crashin’ Thrashin’ Roller Controller, Drakum

Crashin’ Thrashin’ Mortar Controller, Smashum Grabb


Medallion of the Legion

You can get one Medallion of the Legion from your WoD Garrison missions, or you can head into Tanaan Jungle and farm the mobs that drop them:

Terrorfist, Vengeance, Deathtalon and Doomroller.

You won’t be able to cross realm/ server hop, but you can still kill the mobs and get a chance at loot.

(Let’s be honest, this blog post is only here as an excuse for me to post bacon pics)

Dump all your food, unless you’re going to use it in the way Gold Dragon wrote about earlier. Including Bear tartare and fighter chow!

But Bacon will be useful in the first few months of Battle for Azeroth. Both as Crispy Bacon and as part of Suramar Feasts.  It will take a while until all the guilds can cook BfA feasts


Ancient Mana Crystals

Suramar questline is part of the Legion Loremaster, and thus the Broken Isles Pathfinder achievement which awards flying in Broken Isles.

I farm mine in Azuregale Bay  Here is the guide!


If you are a Patreon of TGQ there is a HD Video of where to farm ancient mana available for you. 


Sleeping Murlocs

The Underlight Angler is staying in Battle for Azeroth.  Rare fish/lures will be in demand, possibly not immediately but by completionists.

Sleeping Murlock drop Seerspine Puffer which award either +skill in Legion fishing, or artifact power for your underlight angler.

Other items you can fish up and sell on the AH are:

  • Funky Sea Snail
  • Salmon Lure
  • Frost Worm
  • Rotten Fishbone
  • Nightmare Nightcrawler
  • Drowned Thistleleaf
  • Aromatic Murloc Slime
  • Pearlescent Conch
  • Rusty Queenfish Brooch
  • Enchanted Lure, Demonic Detritus
  • Moosehorn Hook
  • Ancient Vrykul Ring
  • Message in a Beer Bottle
  • Axefish Lure
  • Decayed Whale Blubber
  • Ravenous Fly

The Sleeping Murloc sells best


More Items to Dump for Battle for Azeroth

Legion Trade Materials:

Unbroken Claw, Unbroken Tooth, Transmutagens, Empyrium, Felslate, Leystone, all your meat, all your fish, your gems, stonehide leather, stormscale, your herbs, your legion herbalism seeds, Shaldorei Silk and Lightweave, but keep a stack of each for crafting tailoring transmogs.

Hang on to your enchanting mats for now, because enchant scrolls will still sell for the next few months

Except: if you see them being sold at a very very low cost, in which case buy them now for saving for later, as the price may slowly go up again.  In 2019 you will be crafting Legion gear for transmog sales. Perhaps keep a few stacks of herbs for inscription.

Don’t dump your Alchemy stock before BfA, because all those potions and flasks will be useable while leveling, both for you and for your customers on the AH.



Want to look at the other pets available from Warlords of Draenor and Legion, to check which ones might sell well?  Here are a list of the CAGEABLE WoD and Legion pets, brought to you by Cageable pets can be sold on the Auction House.
