What did I do?

As we can see from my stats above my sales this week were quite good. I ended up hitting 919k in sales this week! The main culprit is of course the Antorus BoEs as they can really bring in a massive amount of gold per sale.

Outside of reposting auctions I have not had much time to spend on the challenge. I restocked alchemy and I got a bit further on the argus quest line on my demon hunter so I am now on the way to item level 925 followers.

As we can see I briefly got above 1 million gold again this week before hitting the Auction House to spend gold. I have not been too diligent in looking for BoEs this week so I expect next week to be slightly slower as I need to spend gold again now.

TSM sales

The two Antorus BoEs make quite an impact at the top here. Two items sold for more than 180k will really bring home the bacon. I also got completely cleaned out of flasks this week so I have restocked those. I sold another panther this week as well and will need to restock those now. Empyrial crowns keep selling well so I will definetly be doing more primal sargeritemissions on my jewelcrafter to keep crafting them.

101 BoEs are of course also still very good and I made several sales this week as well. None of them really stand out, but they do bring in steady gold.

Switching to the quantity view we see that food and Ghost Iron continue to top the charts. I sold a really high amount of flasks this week so I have restocked those. We can see that my food stockpiles are dwindling as I have not had time to restock much this week (only sold 60 Azshari salads)


Not even sure if I want to keep including the inventory view in these posts. It’s still a bunch of BoEs, some trillium and Ghost Iron Ore and herbs. We can see that I am not currently sitting on any particularly valuable Antorus BoEs, but I have a nice volume of BoEs across the various item types.
