How many auctions do you have running every day on World of Warcraft?

That was the question posed to my inbox two days back, just as I was in the middle of writing the free ebook that you can get for signing up to the free email subscription to TGQ.

I wasn’t able to answer the email at the time, but promised I would look into it for him.

As TGQ is based in Europe, I can’t simply link to the undermine journal. Sadly I need to add up the old fashioned way!

Scribe 1023
JC  80
Enchanter 150
Niche alt  75
Junk alt  165

TOTAL:  1493

These are the number of auctions I have ticking away this moment, 3am in the morning, before I head up to bed!

You need some more stats?  Here are this month’s sales list:  626k  A great first two weeks, then slow the last two weeks as I have focused more and more on this blog.


This question is part of a growing concern that gold makers are not telling “ordinary players” all their hints and tips, that they’re keeping back some big secret.  Is it automation? Is it number of auctions? Price of auctions? Daily Routine?There are very few things I keep back from you, dear reader, such as my real name and my main’s name for privacy. If you have any more questions about making gold, what I do to achieve it, I encourage you to email me, or to just leave a comment.  It’s not a science, it’s not an art, it’s organic, and sometimes we ‘crazy-rich elite’ fail just as you do.  I sometimes think perhaps the secret might be that we just get on and do it.

    Prior to 4.0.1 (when the dreaded 42454 items in AH bug came in), I used to have between 1.5k to 2.4k items listed on the AH (not a single glyph in that!)

    I also kept around 500 to 800 bids ongoing.

    But since the introduction of that bug, I have at best 250 items and 80 bids going on.

    Scanning takes about 30 to 40 minutes on my server, and I have only 5 to 10 minutes left to play the AH after a scan. (when the Get_all used to work, it took 5 minutes to scan, so this left me way more time to work the different markets I delved in)
