Did you get an invite to the Beta yet?Yes! I was even invited to the alpha but didn't have time to play it D: I'm hoping to give the beta a try soon, the thing I'm looking forward the most is exploring all the new areas, the screenshots I've seen so far look gorgeous.
How often do you repost your auctions? How many markets do you feel comfortable in? What are you going to do next to expand your gold-making?I repost with more frequency i can, 48 for 48 hours. Mount Market, Pet Market e Itens set. Welll, for BFA i have no idea for marketing whatsoever, but gathering it will be the first on my head, then profession itens sets for sure, and maybe i will try to invest a littlke more time on Transmogs, i'm from moonguard, so it might starting swing better at the time. That's what a think.
I repost my auctions only once in the morning, and once in the evening. That way I'm able to abridge both the day and night customer bases (and yes they're different). I focus on the evening from Monday to Thursday, and on the morning at the weekends, because at least in my region those are the periods where I make most of my sales. I also have products I sell more at the weekends, such as bags and obliterum, and the weekly reset goldmine which is Vantus Runes. Other than that I'd advise people to always look for cheap mats and reselling deals during the weekend, it's usually when people get desperate and try to dump their products for cheap prices.
Thanks for the discussion on the battle.net gifting and how it will/will not effect the wow token. I find wow token studies to be interesting and how they change based on speculation just like the stock market.
Amazing advice on the Darkmoon Faire. I did not have any idea that the pets of this event were so expensive even today. Although I highly doubt that the fish sells at 50g in my server, but I for sure will try !
I honestly think there needs to be a cap on Wow tokens. Hope Blizzard will soon consider this for the sake of the players.
In regards to BfA, I know there have been some talk of the mission table still being a thing but it is going to be revamped even further. I want to know how much like WoD and Legion it will be. Those things are major money makers. In WoD I was able to make a cool 2M in 6 months. Legion is even better. I have quite a few alts, but in a given week I pull in 250-350k (pooling the alts money into a central Alt Guild Bank). This has allowed me to purchase tokens, even at their new price, for myself and 2 family members to pay for our subs. With a wee bit to hoard away until a rainy day. I would like this trend to continue into BfA.
When I saw that battle.net balance was now gift-able it made me concern of the real money for in game service. Of course there is already on going sales of m+ 15 for wowtoken if the booster come from an other server. However the fact that you can now pay with battle.net for in game service makes this whole issue go on an other level. It is a common trend on F2P asian mmorpg that anything that is giftable can and is being exploited or not used as intended. I hope blizzard implement hard rules/ restriction of such purchase at a given time, as I personally have fallen for the lucrative laziness of giving my real money for easy in game items/ services in other games.
Hopefully they will add something new for Darkmoon Ticket´s soon, some new mount would be not bad. But kinda hoping it wont cost 15000 ticket as it seems they are rapidly increasing cost of the items purchased. We have hop from 150 tickets to 1000 for newest mount. Kinda unfair to the newer players, it will take a lot more time to get it cuz older players have farmed tickets from past.
I couldn't imagine token prices being upwards of 400k. Thankful that I am on a NA server, then again, I could never save up 200k on a server to begin with. Ner'zhul US has a very slow AH where I just end up underselling just to get the items off my toon.
Usually just post my auctions once a day cause I'm lazy. As for markets I usually only play in one or maybe two at max with minimal commitment cause the big players tend to post so aggressively.
I've never participated in the Darkmoon Faire, but I feel like I should. There are some fun rewards that I'd like to get.
Ah, Darkmoon Faire.I absolutely adore it, and I believe every Goblin should, too - because Goblins persevere, and perseverance in conjunction with Darkmoon Faire Favors means leveling professions for free, albeit slowly. I have traditionally relied on Faire to tide me over the most expensive ranges in profession leveling, when I didn't consider a profession a priority to level. I don't doubt many Goblins realized this already, but with profession compartmentalization into 100-point expansion ranges, this essential feature that saved me several tens of thousands of gold in materials, will change forever... My bet is, it will only work on whatever range is current.It's too early to tell, but my long, green nose smells opportunity!I am surprised you didn't mention the once-per-character, 100-tickets quest Silas' Secret Stash. That's another spender for 100 Daggermaws, adding to my business - and who doesn't want what is effectively a free toy, or item, right away? I actually bark the map when advertising my insanely overpriced Daggermaw auctions... Goblin mindset, always help your customer rationalize the purchase!And of course, the turn-in items. Every Goblin should carry a Darkmoon Adventurer's Guide, even if they run instances very rarely - simply because they may get something when they do! I've had items drop on me off add kills during raid encounters (eg. plants on Botanist in the Nighthold!). And these are all worth money, directly or indirectly.All in all, Faire is the fastest way to acquire heirlooms for a player new to WoW - they could sell a token, and use that gold to get the items, and they can do the pet dailies right away!By level 15, they can also get on with the Silas' stash quest... and only past that does the stuff become a bit more challenging. The pet dailies particularly can be an opportunity for a Goblin. Doing the Darkmoon daily pet battles is a single largest (105) source of tickets and requires a Dragonkin, an Elemental, and two Mechanical pets, all capped of course. All in that set can be bought leveled and caged - these include Clockwork Gnome and Onyxian Whelpling, both of which command steep prices and fat margins. And if your client doesn't want to spend too much there, there's always opportunity to sell them a Terrible Turnip, which you can farm on your Pandaria Farm, level, cage and sell for decent profit - and which (apart from being Elemental in that set) is a mandatory pet with non-lethal attack, a must-have for any aspiring pet collector.At least once I managed to sell one of those expensive pets by barking them together as a 'Darkmoon Pet Battle 100% win guaranteed set'... I'll say it again. Goblin mindset, always help your customer rationalize the purchase!
Farming money on Ashran items looks reasonable for me. Also, having an auction house in your own garrison - what can be better?
Didn't get invited to the BfA beta, while my friend who refuses to play it because of spoilers did, mind you over the last week I got invited to a Alpha test for one game and a Beta test for the Summerset ESO expansion that I particularly had no interest in. (Tis my luck)I usually repost auctions as many times as it takes or till eventually I get frustrated it doesn't sell and throw it in the bank to attempt another sale at another time.P.S. I think Ion is a idiot and one of the worst things to happen to WoW...he can't even be bother to come out and say things in plain english...he reuses old lines which about High Elves which aren't even valid anymore with Void Elves...and he plays holier than thou even when him and his team makes huge mistakes and they basically give you a big F-U and tells you to wait till the next expansion after people were telling him how much of a epic fail Demo was even in the Legion Alpha.
How often do you repost your auctions? How many markets do you feel comfortable in? What are you going to do next to expand your gold-making?When I was able to use the app I was constantly posting, buying, and reposting auctions. When that feature died off my AH presence dropped off significantly. I really only heavily focused in enchanting materials and herbs. I'm not certain I'll do much with the AH next expansion.
While my gold making from the auction house has diminished quite a bit with Battle for Azeroth coming up, I definitely repost auctions at unreasonably high prices in stacks.I think Primal Obliterum is my biggest currently. Posting in stacks of 10 even though everyone undercuts to an extreme. People buy stuff at high prices all the time and I wish people understood that undercutting is never good unless you really need a small amount of gold stupidly fast. I've even had a Dreadleather Jerkin sell twice at 50,000g post 7.3.
Wait, what no DMF at the start? but where will i get my trinkets from inscription, if they dont change it from a quests to just a use.
