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.

Well I've recovered from my 3 day long bender and finally got some sleep. Of course during that time I made sure to at least do a cancel/post while waiting at home for a ride to the next stop. I sure as hell wasn't going to be driving myself anywhere, that's for sure.
And holy crap I just noticed I have yet another gold cap. Woohoo number 6!
Detailed Recap -------------- It seems that titansteel prices are slowly dropping in price but crusader orbs are becoming even more and more scarce. A very annoying catch 22 for the toc epics market. On that note, I picked up the recipe for bejeweled wizard's bracers finally for 1500g. I learned it and sold two of them before the week ended. So they're now in my standard inventory now so long as I'm stocked up with epic gems. I also took my pally into another toc pug and got the other mail dps recipe so I'll craft a set of bracers/chest and see where it goes. I then bought the leather dps bracers for 1500 and am looking to pick up the leather chest piece as well.
I know last time it took a bit to move the bracers, but I said the same thing about the tank piece. Though lately the tank epics have been selling in pairs at a full buy out price which nets me well over 1k profit per sale. Ok 20 minutes ago the mail bracers have sold for a decent 300g profit. it isn't astounding but I'll keep making them as I get more orbs in for the time being.
Seriously, get in on this market if you can afford it. A quick suggestion if you're working in this market though. Set up QA3 to give you a bid set to 90% of the buy out price. You'd be surprised on how many extra sales this has gotten me. Sure you won't get the full amount of profit you'd like, but that's sure better than no sales at all. It also has a way of inciting a small bidding war when there's only one up on the AH. When this happens, people will tend to either say screw it and stop bidding or just buy it out completely when they normally wouldn't.
I'm getting stuffed to the gills with my epic gem purchases. I've even taken to buying up some cut ones as well when the price is right. The profits from the market so far have been very good to me and still allowing me to stokpile a good amount of extras for when ruby sanctum goes live which I hope is today. Taking a gamble on the gem prices spiking up good and high temporarily. And with the inevitable material shortage, thanks to yours truly, I'll be in a great position to take the reigns and get advantage of the price increase. Worst case scenario and prices remain the same then I'm just stocked up to last me until cata comes out.
Since leaving the glyph business, it seems that my former competitors have returned in full force. So of course, I had to trash the market. Again. I pulled glyphs down to 10g and even at that price and barely posting anything I did rather well. I didn't even start crafting new glyphs until like Wednesday when I had only about 800 or so in stock. Heh whoops. Admittedly that was also due to me being out of vellum's of both types so I had to spend almost all my IotS on those to refill. Regardless, it's still a thriving market on horde side and is doing just as well alliance side. All hail the King of professions.
Lastly, twink enchants have been picking up from a brief lull once more. It seems like every weekend is still a promised fistful of sales in that area. Even if I sell none during the week, come Saturday there they go flying off the shelves again.
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.
