It's that time again, resets, crashes, bugs, and reports. Today is the day where I, Stokpile the well dressed and lover of all things shiny provide you with some nice reading material while angrily awaiting blizz to get servers back up. As usual, numbers and bottom lines come first.
Income per banker
Gems, LW, misc: 68,000
Smithing and enchanting: 63,000
Total weekly sales: 131,000 Weekly profit: 32,000 Total gold: 1,112,000
I made yet another week of huge sales that was counter balanced by massive stokpiling once again. It seems I can never make an ass ton of gold in a week without finding just as many great deals that I couldn't pass up. I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing O.o
Detailed Recap -------------- Saronite! I has it! I finally managed to catch an UF in action and picked up enough to smelt over 3,000 bars. Very excited to finally be stocked up again. I dropped 2,000 of the bars into the guild bank for later use and xmuted the rest which became a pile of 300 titanium bars. Setting aside two stacks for back up materials, another stack to my enchanter/smith and the rest is going into titansteel. Ah titansteel, never enough of it around. I generally don't keep a huge amount of plain raw materials hanging around. I'd rather use them as I find to the time to do so, sort of like a credit card for time, spend 5 minutes here and there so that I can have an entire hour later on.
Of course I always make sure that I distribute it evenly and not use every bit on buckles or make 5 million enchanting rods. Just taking advantage of a spare 5 minutes where I have nothing pressing to do, I'll start up a mass crafting session of 4 stacks of buckles, or start smelting 100 titansteel bars. Work now, play later.
I also managed to catch somebody clearing out their guild bank and bought a few dozen stacks of dust and a ton of greater cosmics. No such luck on crystals though, but I'm still well stocked with them since I haven't been able to craft many weapon enchants while being so low on cosmics. Speaking of enchanting materials, righteous orbs have been flooding in along with brilliant shards, but essences of air are nowhere to be found. Same goes with golden pearls. This is yet another time where I'm glad I take my own advice and stokpile like a madman.
I still have plenty of mats to make old world enchants while waiting for supply to return. Now I am once again the sole supplier of caster twink enchants and keeping the orbs off the AH means I have a pseudo monopoly on crusader enchants. Would be nice to be running the full spectrum of old world enchanting scrolls, but hey can't have everything.
Epic gems have been doing very well since I've been putting a much more personal touch onto the market. Keeping track of things allows me to ensure that I can maximize my profits. It seems that cardinal rubys are in the annoying middle area where they're too pricey to buy raw and sell cut, but cheap enough to tempt me. I'm down to under a stack of every epic color and struggling to keep enough of cuts on the AH. I'm now able to pick up gems as low as 80g and resell them for an average of 140g for this week, but still able to hit the 200g marker time and time again.
They're back in full swing after the crash with profit margins being almost exactly the same. I'm actually very grateful for the crash, I am. Once the dust settled only the people with the foresight to see that it wasn't over and still maintained a huge pile of materials while still having the guts to keep buying have remained in the market. Go on and guess who that one person is on my server... go on, guess.
Tailoring has been almost totally absent from my weekly earnings this week as there's a lot more competition in that market, so I've been posting my wares at barely above material costs. As per my standard MO, I'm hoping to annoy and frustrate the competition into convincing themselves that tailoring is just a bad profession. No money to be made here people move along. Heh. I can deal with only making 2g profit on a sale essentially forever, but not many have the patience for that. People always want a magic "I win button" to push, sadly it doesn't exist. If it did trust me, I'd be a millionaire. Oh wait...
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.
