Since I hit the cap I’ve really relaxed my sales, mostly my incoming gold has been coming from glyphs and my daily gem assembly line. So despite my recent spending I’m still 10K over the cap, my approach to spending is similar to my approach with gambling. I never gamble anymore than I’m willing to lose, I don’t hit the ATM in search of more cash to recover my hot streak. And so my buying in wow is limited to only the gold I’m willing to lose.
Since I’m capped on Khaas now, I’ve been storing my excess in my
» Focus: 21
» Protection: 8
» Rapidity: 17
» Total: 46 Need 6 more…
I’m buying the things at about 250 each, though I have found some great deals here and there. I’ll be glad to have this one done, I’m in the process of farming turn in mats for these Librams now. Slow but steady, the Blood of Heroes for Rapidity are proving to be as difficult to find as Libram of Protection on the AH.
Planning for the Future
With Cataclysm on the horizon I’m thinking more and more about my future gold making enterprise, the alt army is working well and I firmly believe it will continue to be profitable in the future. That said, I’ve started working on the second account. Currently I’m up to 2 80s, a 61, and a 60 with more to follow. The plan of course is to level Alchemy on all of these characters, as well as a few other redundant profession coverage. With 10 profession slots empty, here are my thoughts:
1. Enchanting – Although my main is an enchanter, it would be nice to have a character to disenchant massive amounts of items with guild bank access for Saronite Shuffle type functions, rather than mailing things back and forth.
2. Engineering – Simply because it’s nice to have a Goblin and Gnomish engineer for those rare times when something useful is available to either (Bullets and Arrows in ICC).
3. Inscriptions – I’m seriously considering doing a scribe on my second account, the reason being I can keep him logged on my laptop while raiding or whatever and keep flipping glyphs aggressively, and restock as necessary.
4. Herbalism – Farmer dedicated to herbs, sometimes farming is unfortunately necessary.
5. Mining – Farmer dedicated to ores, sometimes farming is unfortunately necessary.
6. Skinning – Farmer dedicated to leather, sometimes farming is unfortunately necessary.
7-10. Tailoring – I’m thinking the new cloth cooldowns could be quite profitable and I definitely want to be ready for any new bags/patterns.
All told, this is going to be a lengthy project that will take up a lot of the time between now and Cataclysm, but with the Bucket List near completion I definitely have plenty of time to spare…
The Bloodscalp Report
I’m a little “out of the loop” at the moment, but sales are continuing. The only thing I can really say is that prices appear to be continuing their downward trend across various markets. My guess is that the new content in the Ruby Sanctum will have a mild effect on prices (at best) and we’ll continue to see drops in market prices as the summer starts. The big factor here is going to be massive amounts of kids who normally would be in school all day now farming for materials and trying to make a little gold on the AH. This is going to drive prices lower, add in the end of the expansion crunch and you have a recipe for really bottom rung prices. The good news is, it makes levelling professions on alternate characters much easier. So now is the time to start looking at those alts and getting them ready for the end of the world.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading…
