Grab bag of random tips for Pandaria

Khalior's Tentacular Junkpile [rss twitter] • As far as I can tell, you have 2 options in gold-making right now at the beginning of this expansion : get to level 90 ASAP or farm your way to level 90. If you get to max level, you're going for gold-making by crafting items to put on the AH. You could also make gold by selling … Read Full Post


Level 83-84 Mists Items: Time To Stock Up

Power Word: Gold [rss twitter] • My current plan for the 83-84 Mists of Pandaria item market is to collect these items while most players are leveling through the initial Mists of Pandaria zones where they drop. If Mists of Pandaria has a similar curve to Cataclysm the cheap supply of these items is likely to dwindle … Read Full Post


Spirit of Harmony Farming in Kun-Lai

Clockwork Riot [rss twitter] • Hey folks! I'm looking for the best places to farm Spirits of Harmony. I look forward to checking out level 90 zones but for us low-level folks looking for Spirits check out my newest video … Read Full Post

The New 77-80 Market: 82-84

Phat Lewts' [rss twitter] • As predicted, there is a new era of twink gear out that is equivalent to Cataclysm's 77-80 market (which is still alive and kicking). Keep in mind that now is not a great time to sell, it's a great time to buy. Lots of this will be on AH's for relatively cheap, and now is not necessarily the best time to post … Read Full Post


MoP, Selling Caged Pets

Vile's Golden Auctions [rss twitter] • We have new things to do, and new ways to make profit off from nearly every place we take a look at.

I bought myself a guild!

Vault of Light [rss twitter] • While idling around Stormwind a few weeks ago I saw someone announce in Trade chat that they wanted to sell a level thirteen guild (prior to the change to guild xp in the latest patch).

WoWMidas [rss] • No surprise here, folks. Month over month, prices dropped almost 40%! Same as when Cata was imminent, prices tanked. Unfortunately, this isn't obvious from the pre-Cata data, because the last reading pre-Cata was a full month before launch, before the fire sale began. Our current reading (10 September) …

Jackspot [rss twitter] • L'essence du néant supérieure s'obtient "principalement" en désenchantant des armes ayant un ilvl compris entre 46 et 50.

This means that each of us walks our unique own gold-making path. Since Mists of Pandaria is coming out in 5 days we thought it would be good to … 


MoP Beta Files: The New Inscription Research

Kaliope's Crafting Blog [rss twitter] • As I've reported previously, creating this item also helps you discover a new glyph recipe.

1 Million in Mists of Pandaria

Manthieus Movies [rss twitter] • Making Gold is what i love, and a new expansion is the best time to do so. So here is the class and professions i will be leveling to start. 1 Million gold sounds like a lot now, but 20k gold was a lot just 2 years ago in this game. Try this for yourselves and let me know. I will see you all once …

AOE Looting's Effect On The Cloth Markets

Power Word: Gold [rss twitter] • After doing a Black Rock Depths run on my 85 I ended up with Runecloth. A lot of Runecloth.

MoP Beta Files: Recent Profession Tidbits

Kaliope's Crafting Blog [rss twitter] • I'm sure most of you saw this post regarding the Alchemy Specialization quests.

This is because the specialization quest now requires … Read Full Post


Robes of Insight Now Being Duplicated?

Power Word: Gold [rss twitter] • I've had a sneaking suspicion lately that with all the illicit BOE mount duping that's likely been going on on the servers lately (you've all heard the level 1's in trade chat trying to sell Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger for 15k) that it would only be a matter of time before the dupers moved … Read Full Post


The Duping Witch-hunt

Phat Lewts' [rss twitter] • Recently, Jim from Power Word: Gold came out with an article entitled Robes of Insight Now Being Duplicated?. Although the number of Robes is rising, as indicated in his blog and via data from The Undermine Journal, I'd like to take a moment to take a critical look at his observations … Read Full Post

Recipe Vendor MIA - Some recipes no longer obtainable!

Clockwork Riot [rss twitter] • Hagu, a listener of the Litecast, sent in a question asking if the Desoalce caravan had been removed since they couldn't find it. I went out to Desolace to check for myself and sure enough the caravan seems to be MIA. I've gone … Read Full Post


Augmenter vos profits avec la "longue queue"

Jackspot [rss twitter] • Je vous rassure tout de suite, bien que le titre de cet article soit un "poil" ambigu, je n'en suis pas encore réduit à exhiber mon "engin" pour me faire des pièces d'or en cette fin d'extension WoW. Blague à part, qu'est ce que la "longue queue" ? Plus connue sous le nom de "longue traine" ou "long tail" en anglais … Read Full Post

Now it's your turn

Foo's WoW Musings [rss] • I first started this blog when a couple of the existing gold bloggers bowed out. They had done their time, and were moving on. It was time for a new wave of bloggers to step up; and new sites to be formed. I was a noob with half baked … Read Full Post

All I got for Patchmas was an Ink Nerfbat

WoWMidas [rss] • Ok, so that’s not entirely true. This is a tale of laziness, woe, and redemption. Read the “fine” patch notes. Such a simple thing to do. And yet I blew it this time around: I didn’t read about the 5.0.4 changes carefully enough. I should have read … Read Full Post


Buyer’s Remorse

The Gold Queen [rss twitter] • A reader emailed asking if I had experienced Buyers Remorse after buying the Swift Spectral Tiger Mount. We get a lot of emails at The Gold Queen and although Community Manager Matojo answers where she can, sometimes the personal questions need a personal reply … Read Full Post


MoP + DMF = Petmas

The Auction House Grind [rss] • Over the past few months I have been advising friends and guildies to stockpile their Darkmoon Fair tokens.

MoP Beta Files: Leveling Zen Inscription

Kaliope's Crafting Blog [rss twitter] • I started with 10 stacks of green tea leaf, 9 stacks of rain poppy and 1 stack of silkweed.

Yesterday on the WoW Gold Blogger Live Hangout Sapu, Lead Developer and Director of TradeSkillMaster, treated the bloggers in the hangout to a sneak peak at a new desktop application in the works for TradeSkillMaster … Read Full Post


Now, a faster mailbox…

WoWMidas [rss] • I may have been doing it all wrong before, but emptying glyphs or gems or herbs out of my mailboxes used to be a slow chore. At least as far as I understood it, there was a one-minute cooldown per 50 mailbox items (an item being a slot that would hold up to 12 stacks). So even if the 50 items came out … Read Full Post

1 Million Gold Cap Club: Riverider of Whisperwind-US

Warcraft Econ [rss twitter] • I am Riverider, a Mage on the US Whisperwind realm. I’ve played computer games since 1978 on a Commodore PET computer.

Glyphmas 1.5 Yes Inks were still tradeable, but I made out pretty well precrafting. I ended up with 11 of each glyph I could make (I was aiming for 20) and was able to sell off a good amount of them … Read Full Post


Spirit of Harmony

Foo's WoW Musings [rss]
We want crafters to be out in the world adventuring instead of camping out in front of an auctioneer. I can only think of a couple of times that I joined a general QQ chorus and they generally revolved around real names or real id. But this one ... ugg … Read Full Post

MOP Leather and Blacksmith

Foo's WoW Musings [rss] • Given Blizzard's stated intention that "Initially, we want crafters to be out in the world adventuring instead of camping out in front of an auctioneer, hoping to score some cheap mats.", consider taking up gatherer + crafter. I do not make this suggestion lightly, and it will still be wrong for a lot … Read Full Post

Swishco Ventures [rss twitter] • As most of you are hopefully aware, this Tuesday (Wednesday for the EU) was Patch 5.0.4, the pre-expansion patch for Mists of Pandaria. After a bit of a rocky start with the usual extending of maintenance, I first logged into my glyph seller to re-post anything that had expired during … Read Full Post


Priest Tier transmog with a difference.

Vault of Light [rss twitter] • Recently I've been playing both my Warrior and Paladin a lot. Being plate wearers they have the option to transmog to some plate skirts but I tend to keep them in full pants. Tanking in a dress doesn't feel quite right to me. With that I've started looking at cloth legs a bit more. There are no Priest tier sets … Read Full Post
