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.

Smithing and enchanting: 46,000
Total weekly sales: 92,000 Weekly profit: 48,000 Total gold: 1,160,000
Detailed Recap -------------- Been spending a bit this week on my DK. Bought a pair of trophies in a toc pug to complete their matching set and the gems/enchants that go along with it. But all things considered that wasn't that much, a drop in the bucket compared to the usual weekly earnings. I would get the primo legs crafted as well, but they just totally don't match the rest of the toc gear she's wearing.
Epic gems, holy crap. I'm totally sold out of a few colors and slowing down my sales on the ones I'm stocked on a lot. The idea is that when the new raid comes sales will explode temporarily thus increasing prices by a lot. So unless I can make a good 50% profit, I'm not selling that particular gem currently. I'll continue with my stokpiling, xmuting, etc in the mean time. The raid should be out soon as it's being farmed on the PTR currently so I don't have much time left to build up a stock of cheap raw gems to sell for a killing later on. Meta gems have mostly been selling at top end prices, even the slow moving ones have been sold rather quickly for 100g a piece. So much so that I have to xmute another few stacks of both meta types. No super luck on procs as usual >_<
LW bags have been moving just as awesome as usual, but armor kits have sped up a bunch. I'm getting about 30g+ profit per sale and leather has been all but absent on the AH. Strangely enough arctic furs are STILL below the cost of 10x heavy borean and thus epic leg armors are worthless as well. I'll never understand why this is the case. I mean there aren't THAT many skinning UF's around. In fact the last pair that sold tons of leather have basically stopped farming. Good thing I still have a few thousand heavy borean hanging around.
The battle for tailoring is back in full swing along with belt buckles. They're both riding a nice 1g above material costs. That means that when they sell, I'm losing a few gold from the AH cut. And if they DON'T sell I'm losing a few silver from the deposit fee. But lucky for me I can still keep this up perpetually to ensure the competition makes as little profit as humanly possible. I defend my markets rather fiercely, I know. But that's just how I do things here.
Enchanting rods have still been selling out at the rate of a full set every other day at the least. Though titanium rods not so much due to the many people leveling up smithing with them. Since titanium bars are so cheap, sometimes cheaper than xmuting saronite, this is the best way to get the last points in BS. Because of that weapon chains have been down on the sales end as well since they require the exact same mats as the rods do. I'm not defending this market as viciously because I have many other options to drop the titanium bars into for a sweet profit. I refer to of course toc epics.
The tanking bracers have finally picked up and are now selling at the same rate as the rest, I must have just started selling them at a slow point. The dps ones though... there isn't enough titansteel in the universe to stokpile enough to keep up with these sales. All I can manage to do is barely keep up with the demand. It's starting to be a serious drain on my stokpile of saronite.
If I could, I'd hire the entire Venture Co. out in sholozar basin to mine all the damned sarontie and titanium they can find if I could. Then maybe, just maybe, I'd have enough mats to stokpile titansteel properly. But until then I'm making due with what I have available to me.
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.
