It's that time again, resets, crashes, bugs, and reports. Today is the day where I provide you with some nice reading material while angrily awaiting blizz to get servers back up. Fun story, I got my super expensive banker up to lvl 10. I did this because blizz doesn't store character data unless you at least reach that level. I did this just in case I lose my account (ie hacked) and lose something like 30k gold worth of worthless stuff.
All that being said, here's the weekly numbers and bottom lines.
Income per banker Epic gems, rare orange gems, vendor pets: 64,000
Rare gems, meta gems, LW, misc: 17,000
Smithing and enchanting: 46,000
Total weekly sales: 140,000 Total gold: 647,000
That makes gold cap number three!
Random thought, but here are a few statistics I've come up with about my AH playing I found interesting.
Every week I: -Sell over 100,000 gold worth of items -Spend 30,000 gold (minimum) every week on materials or flipped items -Sell over 3,000 glyphs -Get told "I'm doin' it wrong" (tm) at least once -Consume over 1,000 infinite dust, 80 abyss crystals, 150 dream shards, 100 greater cosmic essences -Provide enough gems to fully gem a dozen entire sets of gear with rare OR epics. -Craft enough items to consume 20 stacks of saronite bars
Now if only I could track how many total auctions I create, sell, and buy each week. Now THAT is a number I'd like to see.
Detailed Recap -------------- Wow rare gems sure have been in the sewers this week, barely any sales coming in from that market. This is likely due to the fact that epic gems are so wide spread people are willing to pay the extra 100g for that 4 spellpower that will totally make the difference between 2k dps and their goal of 12.5k dps. This same thing happened towards the end of TBC so I expect this trend to continue. If that's the case, I'll be paying less and less attention to this market as soon its profits may be too small for the effort.
I started this week off with 40 of each of the new enggy pets and have sold every last one of them, I even had to craft another 10 of each to stay stocked up. Frozen orbs seem to have leveled off at an average of 20-25g each which is also the normal-ish price for eternal fires/life and 1/6 the price of crusader orbs. I'm a little surprised that it leveled out so quickly. Regardless, this means I'll have to raise my threshold for all items that need frozen orbs to craft and can be a lot more loose with things that use eternals. If orb prices are low, I'll buy them to craft and sell the eternals as is. This has been working well with eternal fires as I've been regularly flipping them for a nice 15-25g profit each. I highly recommend trying this out as it's very simple to compare the price of fires and orbs.
Epic gems have been hard to keep in stock once again, especially purples. The prices are still higher than pre patch but you can see the signs that they're going down as the less popular ones are dropping quick while the more common ones are down by a few gold pieces. Hopefully I can move my whole stock while prices are still up top. Only 4 more stacks of epics left to sell.
For some reason belt buckles are selling at almost triple the normal rate, I've had to craft 5 stacks so far when normally I only need 2 stacks at most for an entire week! The same goes for weapon chains which 20 of them will last me some time but I've been selling a lot more this week. Perhaps people realize they're great for pvp with all the random BG's getting done. Anybody having a similar experience?
Other than that, everything else has been the same for the most part. Enchanting is still amazing when stocked with crystals (even started selling blade ward scrolls), LW is mostly out of supply, vendor pets still make me a killing. Also tailoring has still been selling off a ton of epic threads each day ever since the patch came so if you're able to, look into it and make a bit of extra coin.
This blog is about discovering all of the ways to make money in Rift. There are no cheats, hacks, or exploits used in any of my methods.
After amassing a 2 million gold fortune in wow I decided to come over to Rift and see how well I can do there. It is my belief that the game does not matter as much as the methods used and mine have already been proven to work and work well.
