20 Days of Gold Making: Day 13–What was You Biggest “Yay” Moment

While I can point to not one but many giant flops or failures in my gold making career, I find it much harder to point to any one “yay” moment. I mentioned back in Day 3 – What Were the First Techniques/Tricks/Tips You Used When Starting Out? that my first real flip was the Belt …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 12–What was your Biggest “Oops” Moment

This is an easy one. My biggest mistake hurt, a lot, and I’m still clinging on to the remains of it so I get reminded periodically of my number one biggest mistake in my gold making history. Long time readers (and those with good memory) may remember back in June of 2012 I talked about …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 11–Are there any other lesser known gold making add-ons you use?

Most of us use TSM, Auctioneer and/or Auctionator in combo with Postal – are there any other lesser known gold making addons you use? Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these. Are people still even doing these? I think everyone’s finished theirs already. Oh well. There really aren’t a whole …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 10–Do You Farm Materials? Why? Why Not? And Which Ones, Where?

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this many times before not only on this blog, but on my Twitter and on /r/WoWEconomy as well, but I hate farming. Hate it hate it hate it. Always have, probably always will. It always has just seemed like too much work, and usually for too little reward. It’s not …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 9–What’s Your Favourite Niche Market and Why?

I don’t like niche markets. In fact, I hate them. I’ve tried dabbling in niche markets before, but I hated them and quickly dropped them, they were typically too much work for not enough profit. One of the largest of what some might call niche markets I worked was vendor pets and items. Oh, don’t …

Thinking back to day 2, did you ever reach your goal or are you still working towards it? If you reached it – have you set yourself a new one? Looking back to Day 2 of 20 Days of Gold Making I set myself a few goals in the beginning: Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth One Million …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 7–If You Were Starting Over Again…

If you were starting over again (maybe on a new server perhaps), how would you start building some capital & what goal would you set yourself? Just a quick disclaimer here, I would never opt to start fresh on a server. If for some reason I ever decided to leave my current server (and it …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 6–Which Market Has Made You the Most Gold Over the Years?

This is a bit tricky as I treat most of my professions as set it and forget it, I usually don’t pay much attention once I have it figured out and TradeSkillMaster is running the show. There’s basically only four markets I’m in right now, and have been in fairly consistently over my gold making …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 5 – Do you keep the same banker alt or do you change them up occasionally? Why?

Oh this is a good question. Yesterday when I introduced you to my bank alt I mentioned that the bling she was sporting was original, that set has been with my bankers from the very beginning. Now I’m on my third server since I started playing WoW. I originally started playing on US-Maelstrom because that’s …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 4 – Do you use a banker alt/guild? When did you start doing that & why?

Yes, I do have a bank alt and dedicated guild bank, in fact they’ve been featured somewhat frequently on my blog. For those who aren’t familiar, here’s my bank alt, Leigera, standing in front of an open guild vault. While some people advocate using multiple banking alts I keep all my transactions through the one …
