Here's the business report that I was planing to post on Tuesday.
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: 44,000
Smithing and enchanting: 23,000
Total weekly sales: 70,500 Weekly profit: Negative 700k or something Total gold: 447,000
Yes that's a big ass number in the negative right there. I'm including my run through icc 25 as part of my weekly earnings or lack there of.
Detailed Recap -------------- Quickie update on the toc LW front first. I finally found the recipe for the leather melee DPS chest piece on AH. I got it for 1500g which isn't bad at all though that is my max price on such things usually. But out of sheer curiosity I would've paid a good deal more for it. Now I have every recipe from toc that I wanted and managed to craft a pair of every single one. That took at least 9000 crusader orbs to make, possibly even more.
So in a weeks worth of time the leather bracers have sold twice. The mail bracers twice as well, while the mail and leather chest pieces have not sold a single time. Meanwhile the plate tank/dps gear along with the non-spirit cloth gear has been selling too fast for me to keep in stock. Last time I tried to make some dps gear from LW it took ages to sell for a tiny profit. This time I managed to make about 2k profit with several new pieces left unsold. If I don't sell the chest pieces soon I'll be writing them off as a loss.
And yes those are some rather low numbers that you see up there. As such this will be a comparatively short business report, but still with lessons to be learned. Since I'm just about at my goal I've stopped taking the time to scan the AH regularly for more materials. I have stopped stokpiling. I've also mostly stopped working glyphs horde side again.
I have finished selling off my leather working products minus a few toc epics and armor kits. I have maybe 5 profession bags left to sell out of 20, no more plain leather or furs left in stock. Frozen orb based items are gone as well.
Eternal fire, life, and air are also completely used up. As is my stokpile of abyss crystals and dust and cosmics. I still have a good amount of old world materials, but no more goose scrolls for me. My bank tab dedicated to saronite bars and nothing else has dried up. In fact I've sold everything that wasn't epic or meta gems so far as I had an ass ton piled up for ruby sanctum. As is apparent from the sales numbers, the gem market is still thriving and will continue to do so for a bit of time.
What is it that you can learn from this? Me the warcraft millionaire pulling in so little sales when I can push as high as 60k -profit- in a single weeks time? My name. I am Stokpile. I stockpile. Last week was a good week for profits, and so was the one before it, so what happened? I stopped stokpiling materials and ran out leaving me with very little in the way of things to sell.
Take this as my final attempt to drill into your head how pivotal it is to stokpile as much as you can any time that you can. Especially if you're working in many different markets because the materials for one will cross over into several others. Example: I ran out of eternal fires so I ran out of crafted titansteel, no epic threads, no toc plate epics, no earthsiege meta gems, etc. I also used up my frozen orbs to turn them into crusaders so anything that used them is also out.
Take a lesson from this week's business report. The moment you stop to stokpile the materials that you need is the very moment your rate of sales will plummet.
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.
