Hey Bill, got some tips for a broke pvper for making cash? When I was levelling to 85 I made tons of gold, but I spent everything getting enchants and etc on my gear, and dailies I do in TB are like, 100-200g/day. Can't do a bunch of raids, I'm in a pretty small guild... but I can go farm crap

i would make a case for herb/inscription... Yes the herb/scribe enchants are not the best for a main, but they are roughly on par.

Even with NO gold and a little elbow grease you could get both up within a day or two.

Inscription / the glyph game now that I've been living with it for a few days... It's not bad... It's just endlessly aggravating to see 15-50+ gold undercuts by uninformed careless auctioners.

So easy a caveman can do it!

Set up this search:

wow.... that is insane... I know for a fact that people are already doing this in my AH but that doesn't mean I can't add to the shitstorm of inflated pricing

so buy them out. when gemcutters undercut me by that much i just laugh, buy it, and resell it at triple the price. they run out of material a lot faster than i do. of course on the other hand, maybe your prices are just too fucking high. if you're always getting undercut, you're pricing too high.

In a "capitalist" society.

Its not careless whatever price they sell at, if they are making any kind of profit.

Just because you don't like the profit margin they are setting; is meaningless.

If they are selling themselves out at a net loss, then they are either just stupid, or simply don't give a shit.

Still, anything over the vendor value is good for some people, just because its not you, doesn't mean it's not right for them.

Do you buy out every single item that matches your search?

Pretty much. Occasionally some JC will post a bunch of rings or amulets ("Same Name of the X") and I'll pass on buying 30 of those, but usually its 1-6 random pieces of armor/weapons and I grab them all. There is another whale-ish combination, its like stam+haste+mastery or something, I try to skip those if I notice.

just wanted to post that this is absolutely ingenious... I cleared like 750g from 3 minutes worth of work.

Have to use a LITTLE common sense when buying though... Vizier Dagger of Spirit, a dagger with... yeah... 145 spirit and nothing else might not sell.

Still, anything over the vendor value is good for some people, just because its not you, doesn't mean it's not right for them.

But there's no logical reason I can think of for a person to look at the auction house, see that a stack of Twilight Jasmine is going for 79.99.99/stack and then say, "Yeah that's too high...I could make 79.99.98 gold, but I'm gonna do 54 gold a stack."

It's not always a gradual slide of sellers getting down to that point, often times it's just an instant immediate undercut.

But yes, I do always try to buy them out and relist at my price.

But it is hard to do with glyphs, only because what I pay for my glyphs is almost ALWAYS still lower than what the person is erroneously asking no matter how much of an undercut it is. That might be a little illogical though. 35-60 gold for a glyph is still 35-60 gold for a glyph.

If you buy my shit, then awesome. If its on the AH, I want to sell it for that price.

If you buy everything I have listed and repost it, I literally won't even notice. It'll just look like a bunch of profit.

Nobody playing in high volumes gives a single shit what other people are doing. Its all about taking as little time and effort as possible to make the highest number of transactions. If you're canceling/relisting or buying/reposting outside of auctioneer batchbuy-batchpost then you're doing it wrong.

Doop doop.

Time to craft.



(And this is why getting into the glyph market when you don't already have a decent amount of gold is a bad idea )

How much time do you spend making glyphs and relisting them?

Making - AFK

Relisting - when I feel like it, maybe 2-4 times a day depending on if I'm near the computer or playing. Takes ~3 minutes.
