NOTE: The enchanting formula for weapon - executioner is most likely going to be removed from game come patch 4.1 when ZA gets upgraded. I'd highly recommend that if you have an enchanter to go farm the recipe before then. Even if you're not interested in collecting all of the enchants like I am, you can still sell it on a scroll or in trade. The short version is that this enchant may become a vanity item of sorts. How else can you be looking all fancy without having your weapon enchanted with something that can never be gotten again?
If you've ever checked through the enchants I mention on The List that I sell (and they do sell) you'll see some very strange ones pop up. Ones that I'm sure most haven't thought to put on a scroll. Just to give you an example, let me give you a handful.
Using the above enchants, let me do a solo Q&A that I'm sure the average reader would be wondering. Do they ever sell? They sure do. Is the profit good? The mats cost almost nothing so yes again. How often do they sell? Only once every week or two. Is there any competition? Zero. Who would want these things? Damned if I know. If these things sell do damned slowly, why even bother selling them or collecting the mats? Because why not.
Your average AH player tends to ignore the slow sale items and focus primarily on the mid to and high volume markets. While this is indeed a great strategy and is proven highly effective, it a mistake if you want to hit the big time soon. As you're heard me say many times before along with every other gold blogger out there, diversity is king. When it comes to gems and epics, it isn't that easy due to deposit costs. But you really need to think of scrolls the same way people think of glyphs with the blanket approach.
An enchant scroll takes a deposit of a single silver coin. So what's the point? The point is simple; profit is still profit. If you buy one stack of the materials needed, you're good for a month or three. Just because I always tell at you to stokpile, that doesn't exactly mean a whole bank tab of it. It means enough to last you a long, long time. Take death frost for example. It is extremely uncommon to find an enchanter with this outside of the month surrounding the event and it looks pretty damn cool. If you buy a stack of primal water and shadow, that will last you a long time.
The other reason a lot of people avoid these types of markets is the added time. This is not a valid excuse. If you don't want to bother with a mechano hog because it sells so slowly you're forgetting something. You're forgetting how easy it is to add another section to your choice AH add on and the 1.4 seconds it takes to post it with a macro. It takes almost no time to add an item to be sold and takes only a few minutes to buy the mats and craft a couple dozen of them.
This is one of the several reasons that I keep working with so many odd things. Although I don't work glyphs because a dozen random things doesn't take nearly as long as several hundred. Simply put, keep your eyes open to trying new things. Don't shy away from things because of the time investment. You need to look at every market logically and in the simplest of terms. Gold.
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.
