Obsidium Ore got very expensive this week, and I discovered that as much as I like to think I've "diversified", far too much of my gold-making is still tied up in shuffling ore. It was my first Darkmoon Faire, but I didn't profit a ton off of it because I don't feel super familiar with the market. I've still got a few single cards up. We'll see if they sell.

As you can see, I also didn't sell any heirloom/twink enchant scrolls this week. This is partially due to being low on Illusion dust, and partially due to fierce competition. The other serious auctioneer in the enchanting market on my server apparently realized that my enchanter isn't just dabbling and about to go away, and there's a third person just entering the market, so my "48 hours and forget it" philosophy on enchant scrolls was somewhat less effective than usual. We'll see how it plays out.

Cut Inferno Ruby prices got stupid low on my server for a while there, so as you can see, I chose to make my Carnelians into Carnelian Spikes to disenchant much more than I transmuted them into Inferno Rubies. It was my first major holiday as a goldmaker, and I did see a lot of business this weekend. Yay for three-day weekends!

My shaman is up to 82, and I've actually been able to find Whiptail cheap enough that I can mill it into pigments, turn it all into inks, and make a profit just selling the Inferno Inks. I'm splitting my Blackfallow Inks between trading in for more Inferno Ink, and MFCs to turn into Fortune Cookies and sell.

I ended up making a little under 500g on the Stormchops from The Stormchops Experiment. Most of my sales were to one guild, so if I do this again, I might look into selling directly to a guild still working on the Critter Kill Squad achievement. I'll probably finish up selling this last stack I have, then hop back out. I'm not in love with barking.
Finally picked up My Sales, so I can give actual accurate information about what I've been selling this week.

Not sure if the highlight of my week was the 5 Eternal Shadowspirit Diamonds up for 5g each I've flipped for 100g+ per, or the 30 stacks of Obsidium Ore under 10g I bought last night.

A bit nervous about how many of my eggs are in the Jewelcrafting basket, given that green gem vendor prices are getting nerfed again in 4.2. (Thanks for the heads up, @Sinshroud!) Having a ton of fun playing with the Disenchanting side of enchanting right now, though. (Totally inspired by Faid's latest WoW Gold Rush video.)

I've barely been trying to play with glyphs for, like, a day and it's already making me want to cry. I'll probably finish leveling it, but I don't think it's going to wind up being a huge part of my ~gold making schema~ for now.
I haven't been updating a lot lately, sorry! I've been doing a lot of rep grinding. Lots and lots of rep grinding. And dying in Zul'Gurub. Lots of dying in Zul'Gurub.

I finally finished up Honor Hold, which means I'm hopping back out of the primal elements market. I am fine with this, because I really do not need to run Heroic: Shattered Halls any more. Ever.


So you're grinding Steamwheedle Cartel rep, you poor poor person )


In other, more exciting news, my enchanter is finally to 425 skill. You know what that means...


Get down with your bad self, little worgen priest. Get down.


That's right. Awwww yeah, it's time to get on the proper Obsidium Shuffle train. Updates on that in the future.

Chocolate Cookies are still selling well. I've been selling a lot of fairly low profit margin, but still profitable, Hardened Elementium Bar. I also swam my mage down to Booty Bay, and am actually doing okay for myself selling Alliance vendor pets to the Horde. (And, slightly depressingly, Alliance.) I haven't really started in on cooking recipes apart from the Roasted Moongraze Tenderloin yet, but I should.

I'm also starting to consider taking a day or two out of my Life-to-Air transmute schedule to transmute Fire in order to stock up for 4.2. We shall see.
Was just looking through some Patch 4.1 PTR notes on MMO Champion to confirm some ret pally changes I'd heard about, and saw this:


Jewelcrafting
Bold Carnelian, Solid Zephyrite, Subtle Alicite, Perfect Quick Alicite, Sovereign Nightstone, Regal Jasper, Resolute Hessonite, and any cut of uncommon gem now sells to NPC for 75 silver instead of 9 gold.


That's... kind of a big deal. Not just because of how it affects jewelcrafting, but also because of its effect on ore prices, and therefore Blacksmithing and to a lesser extent Engineering. Not to mention a possible effect on the Enchanting market.
