Gold Cap Challenge: Update 30

This week I worked on profession across all my characters. The bulk of the time was spent on the mage and I am almost ready to craft the item level 850 gear from both professions. I also started working on Garrisons for both my DH and my mage for the Warlords of Draenor transmog markets.

What did I do?

This week I put in quite a bit of work on profession quests. I also restocked a lot of materials for Panthers, old world transmog crafts and Legion alchemy. We can see I spent about 300k on materials on Saturday with the spike down from 4.5 million gold.

I am in the process of setting up two garrisons on my DH and Mage for all the juicy Draenor transmog gear.

I also had some BoE sales this week which lead to some nice gold spikes over the weekend.

TSM sales

This week I finally saw some Antorus BoE sales again. 3 BoEs in the 100k range is really nice. Outside of that I sold a decent amount of leatherworking gear as well as my regular sales in flasks, food and some Obliterum.

This was my best week in sales in 5 weeks and we hit 440k in sales, which is quite nice.

I am getting close to running out of food again though and my sales from that source has started drying up. I will have to run another long restock session if I want to get some more sales from this market. Not sure if I care enough as it is a bit time consuming to stock up and I think my time is better spent getting access to more item level 850 gear.


We can easily see that I restocked a lot of panthers this week. They are starting to crowd out my BoEs as I am gradually divesting myself of them. I think it is about time to start decreasing the price on 110 BoEs in addition to the 101s. I will likely cut the price even more drastically on my 101s as well.
