Gold Cap Challenge: Update 42

This week Uldir opened as well as mythic+. I was hoping to sell of my massive stockpile of potions, but as we will see that did not work out too well. It looks like some of the prices have gone up today though, so hopefully the mythic launch will put me over the hump.

What did I do?

This week I’ve been spending most of my time working on unlocking reputation on my warrior. I am about halfway to Revered on most of my reputations so rank 3 recipes are not too far off.

I leveled enchanting and cooking to get them ready for the raid.

I’ve also been keeping up with my purchases of battle potions on Monday and Tuesday, and trying to sell them after Uldir opened on Wednesday.

I’ve been selling enchants, potions and food and as you can see from the graph I have been making gold ever since the raid opened. Overall I got about 800k worth of sales this week, which is OK, but not amazing.

I spent less gold than last week though, but I’m still slightly down.

My AH value has increased significantly though, mostly due to the fact that I am actually posting my potions.

I’ve also just started leveling my mage to get to the rank 3 darkmoon card recipe. I’ll be leveling it alongside my DH as my top priority as soon as my warrior has all the rank 3s I need.

TSM sales

As we can see from the screenshot I had some very nice sales this week. I sold 3 darkmoon decks as well as several jewelcrafting staves and some Quick navigation enchants. I also sold one of my BoEs, but I actually bought the decapitator for more than 190k, so that’s a loss. At least I moved it.

I’ll be losing gold on the quick navigations overall though as I bought out a significant number of them to reset the auction house.

We can also see that the honorable combatant gear is still selling nicely.

I dipped my hand into some material flipping this week as well. I flipped about 1000 Stringy loins, where I easily doubled my money. I’ll definitely be doing some more material flipping going forward. I’ll be prioritizing herbs and cooking materials as these have the highest demands.


We can see that my Battle Potion stockpile is still substantial. I also have a lot of Medallions of the Legion, which have not sold well, but they will move eventually. Some BoEs and various materials round out the rest of my top value items.

Overall my inventory is looking OK. I need to stock up some more on enchants, but I am hoping to get rank 3s before I have to restock the ring enchants. I likely won’t get the quick nav rank 3 for a while as it is gated by a world quest though.

      1. Wow how much is that selling for for you? Thanks to the warfront I can’t make a profit off that from how much the Mackeral went up by. Are the Honey Haunches and Sailor’s pie selling? Those are the only ones I can make profit with. Hmm..Does TSM take into account ranks? I have rank 3 of all the food.

        1. TSM takes the ranks into account. I am barely profitable at rank 3 for the fish and chips, the others are rank 2 for me, so I’m not selling those.

          1. They all make profits for me. The Fish and Chips just recently became profitable. It’s a small profit, but I’ve sold hundreds of them since yesterday. It’s hard making profits at the moment. Alchemy is if I get procs on the potions. I’m not even trying flasks cause I keep just breaking even with them. Got 300 sold auctions sitting in my mailbox at the moment. Several Fish and chips auctions sold as I logged onto my AH alt. I tried making some honorable gear with my tailor, but I don’t think it’s gonna sell now cause of the warfront.

          2. That’s awesome. The 310 procs might be decent now that warfronts require 320 ilvl to queue into. Definitely a market for some instant boosts to ilvl at max, but check your prices.
