What did I do?

This week I’ve been working on setting up a more full scale gold making operation. My demon hunter got access to rank 3 potions and flasks, and I have been working on making all my mailing operations, etc. work correctly. I still need to dedicate some more time to crafting to really get going though, as my stock is not too high.

I also added the Jewelcrafting panthers to my stock as I finally got access to transmutations. This helps me get cheap rare gems to craft the panthers. I’ve been working the app as well, but those numbers are not included. I am getting low on order hall resources so I will likely have to spend some time getting those up to really get rolling.

TSM sales

Above you can see my sales sorted by total value. As you can see BoEs still remain a very large portion of my sales. The market continues to be the best way to generate large amounts of gold in Legion.

I have also moved quite a bit of Trillium ore and Golden Lotuses. I get these from the Spirit of Harmony trader. If you have access to a miner to smelt the ore into bars, this is even stronger as I have already covered.

Below you can see my sales ranked my items sold. As you can see I am still moving a nice amount of cooking materials. I have mostly stopped flipping them now though, and I am trying my best to get as many rank 3s up as possible before Antorus releases. I probably need to start purchasing more cooking materials to stock up for Antorus. I have bought a nice stockpile of enchanting materials and empyrium, so I am good to go there.



My inventory is looking quite good as you can see. I have a crazy amount of Ghost Iron Ore. It’s unloading very slowly, but I am selling some. I also have a nice amount of both kinds of Trillium ore and Golden Lotuses.

The rest of the value is mainly in BoEs, flasks and enchants. I am selling enchants and flasks now, but I will start increasing my prices as we close in on Antorus to make sure my profit remains high. I will be shopping food like crazy the next week.
