Hello! I'd like to share with you my thoughts on Tailoring and how it has been successful for me in BfA.. I'll caveat all of this with Servers vary and your own experience will be different. I'm on Shadowsong EU, a Medium pop server connected with Aszune.
First up, a little background and context about me... I've been a long-time player since Vanilla Beta, but took a big break between Pandaria and the start of Legion. My gold making journey started 18 months ago and has been my focus ever since! I play on average about 8-10 hours a week and stream at the same time, so my time is split between playing and talking. I usually make about 10-40k gold a day. My main character Samadan takes up 95% of my play time and he has the professions Enchanting and Tailoring with Cooking and Fishing secondaries.
I've made a Pastebin of all my Tailoring Groups and Operations
- You are welcome to import it and take whatever you find useful and "tailor" it to your own needs :)
The main seller for me right now is Sinister Gear. So far I've sold Cloaks - 37, Boots - 20, Belt - 18, Pants - 16, Bracers - 14, Mittens - 13
Average sale price is 6,678g, Crafting cost around 2-3k which represents about 413k profit in the month they have been out.
I had pre-empted getting the rank 2 & 3 by collecting Marks of Honor before they came out. This was done with a mix of BGs and Arena Skirmishes along with Brawl quests whenever they came up for the extra 5 Marks. Also, thanks to CmdrBond on my stream there is a Legion Order Hall mission "a good dust up" that rewards 1 MoH as a bonus. It's worth looking out for. You don't even need to visit your Order Hall to check it using this macro ..
When it comes to getting Expulsom, I use the Tidespray Bracer method. I disenchant the blues and scrap the greens. I use a price string for Exulsom based on getting on average 1 Exulsom every 6.5 bracers I scrap -
(10 * avgBuy(i:152576) + 4 * VendorBuy(i:159959)) * 6.5
when profitable and I have a good stock of Tiefseesatin
, Flags for turn-ins when they are up Schlachtflagge: Ansporn
and Schlachtflagge: Phalanxverteidigung
Then there is a whole load of Old World stuff I have been selling or thinking about selling. I'll list them here, but I go into more detail in the video below ..
Since BfA came out, Tailoring has served me very well for making gold. Better than Enchanting as I have a healthy mix of Old World and New Expansion things that are selling consistently. Profits on Enchanting are much harder to come by.
