Entry today on what I've been up to since my shuffling of markets, mats and more. So far I've narrowed down all of my markets to fit on three bankers, technically two. So this is me organizing my thoughts a bit here. Hey I'm allowed a 'just for me' entry now and then aren't I? But as always, I provide at least one good tip on making some extra coin.
While doing my required reading on EJ about my space goat priest, I found that the best flask for longevity is a Flask of Distilled Wisdom. It adds 65 Int which is an amazing regen stat for disc. I would assume that it's the same for a holy pally since int for them is like crack. The catch however is that it's a TBC recipe that requires Cenarion Expedition exalted reputation to learn. The mats are something like 18-25 gold to craft a pair, so on average they cost about 11g each. Nothing impressive I know, but when you keep in mind it needs a ton of rep with a faction almost nobody gets past honored with... yeah. You can charge out the nose for these.
Assuming you do every quest in HFP and the marsh you'll be just a tad above or below honored. If you get lore master of outlands then MAYBE you'll be half way to revered. Regardless, for the true min/max healer money is not a problem. The only problem is supply, so supply them! If you want to grind out this rep, get an enchanter in group and go grind out the steam vaults regular mode a few million times. The coilfang armaments are the rep turn in items along with just killing trash. I say bring an enchanter in group because you can get a lot of DE goodness from there. They don't even need to be with you just in group and you can get the DE option to pop up. Once you're exalted you can also get one of the coolest looking mounts in game.
EDIT: I read a comment that told me that the recipe for this flask can also be found as a BoE version. Apparently it drops from the last boss in the living side of Stratholme.
Ok here's the low down on everything I've been mucking about with.
I now have Stokpile handling the distribution of all my gems. The gem business is now limited to epics and metas, no more rares or commons aside from the left overs which may be vendored soon. He is also taking care of all my LW and misc sections.
My most favored DK is still handling all of the enchanting and BS goods. I have my two alchemists doing their daily xmute of king's amber and shuffling sarontie bars. I'm still clamoring for truck loads of bars to feed my BS markets with titansteel. Things would be infinitely easier if I could just drag and drop from one toon to another as if I was dual boxing. But I'll never be able to justify a second account for that. Ever.
My mage is still handling all of the tailoring threads, spellweave, and general purpose material buying. That's only because they're crafting it all and ahve a large amount of open bag space. And since they'll be going to the AH a few times a day to buy stuff, I might as well post it on them. Orangerocks is no more and has been transformed into a rather stunning blond human girl to take care of the messy banking work for my girly space goat thing.
I've finished moving all of my rare orange gems along with all but a handful of twilights and scarlet cuts.
All that's left to move are my glyphs which, sad to say, aren't going to be moving that fast. Handling the glyph market is tough enough, but having to do it twice in a day is far more than I can ask myself to do. So unless I find myself extra bored with a lot of extra time I'll fire up my glyph machine again, but for the time being all the mats and such will be sitting in the mail box of my glyph banker horde side. I'll still be keeping up fully on my alliance glyph market of course.
Speaking of which, small update on From the ground up for those of you that are interested. I've been abusing the storm wind AH trick that I found on Tella's blog a while back where you can access the mail box and auctioneer without moving a step. Definitely saves me a lot of time since my banker doesn't have a mount obviously. You can read all about it here. So if you've got an alliance banker I highly suggest you take advantage. Every moment you spend going back and forth is a moment you're not doing something else!
All that being said my messege to you is this: follow the golden 80/20 rule. 80% of your profits must come from 20% of your efforts. If working a few specific markets are taking up too much of your time for too little profit sell out cheap and call it done. If something is taking too much time then you're obviously not having any fun.
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.
