What did I do?

This week was fairly low on WoW time for me. With the changes to the Blood of Sargeras order hall missions I have not been able to sustain as much mission gold. I spent a lot of gold this week though, but I did not get in too much in terms of restocking or reposting.

I decided to start working on obtaining the Vial of the Sands recipe on my alchemist. I started leveling archeology and getting the rep for Lorewalkers so I can use the mantid method to farm for the recipe.

My AH value is back up this week after a fairly hefty restock as you can see on the gold graph below. I bought some very nice BoEs including an item level 975.

TSM sales

I have been sitting on a decent amount of Obliterum for a while now and it finally sold. I think I might need to start being more diligent in turning epic gems into obliterum, as the profit margin is GREAT at this price level. I a 101 BoE as well this week, and Antorus continues to be amazing.

Flask sales are up this week as well, and my newly restocked enchants are also selling quite well. Overall most of the consumable markets have had decent sales this week, which is encouraging. I should probably restock some food again though as I am completely out there.

You can also see my purchases this week with the 975 Gloves of Abhorrent Strategies as the main one here.


Nothing much to say here. My stockpile is very healthy overall. I will likely not be buying any more herbs for the foreseeable future as you can see I have a lot of herbs lying around. I am gradually moving through my Ghost Iron to craft panthers when I have the time, but prospecting is slow. I have been buying spirits of harmony to get cheap golden lotuses for the gem transmutes.
