Gold Cap Challenge: Update 37

Yet another week where I spent a lot of time away from WoW. I did play a bit on my Warrior, primarily running through the BfA pre-patch story line to get the mount, and restocking some more felsteel Longblades.

This is the second to last update before BfA hits. I’ll be focusing on my challenge realm in BfA, so hopefully we should see some great returns when we dive into the new markets!

What did I do?

I was only really at home from Tuesday to Thursday this week, so my playtime was fairly limited.

What I did do was finish up the BfA pre-patch questline to get the limited availability mount. I also managed to level outland mining to max on my DK, so I can now melt my own bars for Felsteel Longblades. The blades have been selling well, and I got my second sale this week.

Overall I stayed about even on gold this week. I spent a decent amount building a stockpile of Felsteel materials. With only two reposts I did not sell too much, but I sold another Panther and Hexweave prices are finally up.

TSM sales

The top sales this week were one Felsteel Longblade and a Jade Panther. The Panther prices are really quite crazy at the moment with all of them sitting above 40k. This market is just too good in end of expansion situations where players hunt for achievements.

I still sell some 850 gear and some BoEs, and Hexweave bags have finally made a comeback in prices. Gems are also still selling decently well. Players want to be fully geared for the start of BfA to really hit the ground running. My Eternal Fire shuffle is also working really well, with a LOT of sales this week, even with very few reposts.


This one will be discontinued until TSM4 re-adds the inventory view.
