Recently I learnt the ins and outs of a basic Tidesray pants vendor shuffle, so I thought I'd share some simple steps here with those that have yet to try this gold making strategy.
If you'd prefer to just watch a short video explanation you can do so
So for those of you who have no idea what this is; you essentially craft
Tidespray Linen Pants
and sell them directly to a vendor, with the exception of the blue rarity crafts. This is only possible if you purchase the ingredients
at really low prices.
The breakeven price for Tidespray Linen is 2 gold 6 silver. Each additional silver under purchase price will increase your profit per pants vendored. The lower you buy in the more profit you make. I try to buy as much as I can at 1 gold 80 silver or lower for it to be worth my time personally. You need 17 Tidespray per pants craft
As of this moment, the shuffle is only profitable on a portion of EU realms, but dont let that discourage you, my realm has seldom been viable, but I've still made good profits during occasional market resets.
You can also manually farm Tidespray Linen instead by acquiring the Synchronous Thread, but make sure to keep an eye out on the auction house for potential market resets that may bring prices down.
It usually sells for 60 silver, but make sure you buy it at a reduced price of 48 silver if you have exalted reputation with
. I've yet to confirm this, but apparently the goblin vendor discount racial works as well.
There are plenty of vendors that sell Nylon Thread, but if you are Horde
, head on over to
Aman De Child
in Dazar'alor to buy as much as you need. If you are Alliance, you can purchase from
You can also try snipe Nylon off the auction house, you won't believe how many people undercut below vendor prices. The latest auction house update has however mitigated this quite a bit, but it still happens sometimes due to the Nylon Thread rewards from PvP chests that people are eager to get rid of.
Making The Raw Gold
Once you have enough Tidespray Linen and Nylon Thread stockpiled, begin crafting Tidespray Linen Pants. Remember to only buy these ingredients at the above mentioned prices. Once you're done crafting Tidespray Linen Pants, start selling them to a vendor, with the exception of the rare crafted pants. Depending on the price of
on your realm, you may want to try and disenchant these rare crafts.
Now unfortunately this shuffle doesn't really have an accurate gold per hour estimate, or at least I haven't been able to calculate one as of yet. The reasons I find it hard to provide a good estimate are as follows.
Everyone has different local Auction House prices for ingredients.
Everyone has different ingredient quantities they can craft with.
Everyone has different efficiencies when it comes to crafting (alts, enchants, macros etc).
Successful Blue Rarity crafts are RNG.
Veiled Crystal Drop Chances are RNG.
I find the general rule to be: The lower the price of Tidespray Linen the more gold you make.
