The neat stacking really helps alot when you are trying to sell items like crafting material or consumables. Also posting them just before the raid night prime time speed up the selling. Regarding the tokens I was never really interested in buying them as I prefer to keep the gold to buy raid BoE or anything that can boost me in a raid enviroment. Anyway, good summary with a lot of usefull tips for someone new to the AH enviroment.
Interesting read on the WoW Token pricing. Didn’t know the EU prices were so much higher than NA. I remember when they were going for $30K.
What kind of maximum price would you pay for a Token with gold? Do you prefer to pay for your game time with a paid subscription even if class yourself as a gold-maker? Do you buy Tokens to give yourself some gold in-game, if not how much gold would you need to get before you did so?I usually don't like to spend more than 180 for a token, and even that is on my high end. I prefer to spend around 135-150 per token. I prefer to spend gold for my sub unless I drop under 1 million gold, then I spend the 15$. I mainly use the tokens to up my BNET balance to pay for subs and to buy new games/xpacs with the Bnet balance. If I was to buy a token for cash for gold, I usually wait until it goes to 230k or above.I am very new to the TSM gold making scene and Gumdrops has been invaluable in helping me get started. For BFA I am planning to re-write my entire TSM code ( or steal someones). I look forward to hearing more about professions in the new xpac and gold making opportunities.
I usually repost my auctions once per day. I try to do it each day at a different time, as I'm trying to figure out when are the best hours to post stuff. A bit of a slow process, but I'm getting there.As I started my path as goblin only recently I'm working only on cooking and engineering. I'm acquiring new recipes and trying out the various crafts to see what works and what to ignore. I'm getting quite comfortable with them now, so I'll be adding a new profession into the equation soon enough. As for BfA, I'm finishing to set up my tailor, I'll focus on her at the beginning of the expansion, and see how it will work.
Interesting read as always.Regarding the questions, I repost A LOT. I've been collecting pets for years and have been starting to sell my duplicate pets, which costs thousands of gold and barley anyone wants to buy I have to repost until it sells.Pets and flasks is what I feel good and comfortable in. I hope to expand with flipping items next xpack.
I never really participate in the darkmoon Faire, only went there once to get to know it, because of this i never used the event to make gold. My favorite game though, I at lesst play them all the only time I went there, is the flying fire rings haha I got a cool toy from it.
It seams to me that it will be harder and harder for rookies to make more gold in BFA. Won't the recipes be more easy to farm with the changes done in the jobs of BFA?
I participate in the Darkmoon Faire every chance I get, and have used the event to make gold a couple of times. It always amazes me how much gold I can make from selling the Darkmoon Daggermaw. It's not a life changing amount of gold or anything but it is nice. AND I'm one of those really weird people who actually like to fish in WoW. So I spend a few relaxing hours fishing at the Faire and listening to my favorite WoW YouTube Videos or audiobooks and sell the fish for gold.Honestly my favorite game at the Faire has always been the Ring Toss with the Turtle. Why? Because I LOVE turtles, and the ring toss is my favorite IRL faire/carnival game.
Fishing at the Darkmoon Faire seems like a really smart way to make money (and to get those non-combat pets for myself once I've made enough). I'm going to do that to level my BfA's character's fishing!
I actually had no ideia Darkmoon Faire could be a proffitable timekiller, guess I'll be trying those steps when I got the chance.Usually I only repost my auctions when their time expires (which is why I put them on 24h timing) and it's definitly a tool for my most comfortable market: professions such like inscription and enchanthing. My next step is to have an alchemy toon (as I saw it being the most proffitable profession on the start of the expasion)
The darkmoon farming seems like good profit. The AH starts to be boring for me so I need new tips.
1) "How often do you repost your auctions?"I post auctions 3 times a day. Once in the morning before going to work, once when I get home and once right before / during prime time (sometimes I post raid consumables twice, when most of my first listings sold quickly). I also run 2 TSM-Cancel scans (before work and when I get home) a day for pets and one (when I get home) for Transmogs and crafts.2) "How many markets do you feel comfortable in"?The Transmog market. Made a few mistakes at the beginning, but now I got it going. Battle Pets were also a good choice. I try to also get in the Recipe market, however I haven't gotten pretty far until now.For fast gold the best is raid consumables and Jewelcrafting on my server. Even this late in the expansion, but I don't know for how long this keeps going on though.3) "What are you going to do next to expand your gold-making?"Just got all crafting professions to >600 for BfA launch. Now I will grab some recipes to get going and maybe get some of them to 800.
At this point, it's hard to justify buying tokens on EU. Unless you don't care about cosmetics at all, the price feels way higher than it should be.
The Darmoon Faire is something that we participated in whenever we had a chance just to get the carousel XP buff. I think that I will be trying the Firebird challenge to get the toy for the wings.
for me is maximum price of wow token cca 15x the amount of your gold status after hiting max level, which is currently about 20 K, so as soon as will wow token hit 400K I think that people will stop buying it until it falls...I like more to buy the game token for GT/ balance, cause my money can go into other things, but since my realm AH is more and more @#$%ed up, it's really hard get gold from there, cause gems are there for 100g or flasks like for 300g, so I have to find other ways of income, usualy and most efficient was M+ boosting, but now at the end of expac, almost everyone got his 10 alts on ilvl 965+ so it's more less pointless. I would never buy a token for gold... it's so unefficient and until the BfA on live gold are actualy without any value...
the maximum price i would buy a WoW-Token for would be the maximum profit i can make a Month because spending gold is better for me than spending real life money. I would like to see Blizzard taking actions against the inflation but seeing as they make alot of profit with ppl buying gold via the WoW-Token my hopes for that are small.
Shame to see that Universal Language module becomes unobtainable, which most likely will shoot prices in AH through the roof when people realize this... question though is that is there much need for garrison personal AH, maybe some will find.
How often do you repost your auctions? How many markets do you feel comfortable in? What are you going to do next to expand your gold-making?I repost my auctions twice a day and i am only on the jc market; i think i will try to take more professions with an alt.
I'm happy that Blizzard is offering the Battle.net Balance Gifting option. I'd really like to see a gifting option for BFA in the US. I'm surprised EU has a World of Warcraft: Battle of Azeroth Pre-Purchase (PC - Code in a Box) to be able to gift, however this does not seem to be available in the US. I've seen this special Pre-Purchase box version even on Amazon UK, however I have not found it on Amazon US. Has anyone heard any details if this special box version may be available soon in the US?
