Gold Cap Challenge: Update 46

This week I have spent an absolutely ridiculous amount of gold. I just hope it pays off sooner rather than later. As we will see my AH value is getting pretty high, so that’s great at least.

What did I do?

Last week I managed to spend a net amount of 782k gold. This week I decided to one up that. I managed to reduce my liquid gold by 1.5 million! I increased my AH value by 1.6 million though, so overall I should be ahead.

My sales were slightly better this week compared to last week. I managed to get 1.3 million gold in sales, which is really good.

BoE flipping has started bringing in some sales this week, and it is also the main reason why I have spent so much gold, including buying a 390 piece for 490k.

Most of my gold has come from enchanting, some jewelcrafting and a lot of material flipping.

I found a lot of cheap Tidespray Linen and I have ramped my darkmoon card production back up again. I’m going to have to change my settings though as two of the decks are below my minimum price, and at this point I will just have to sell them for a loss. I can make it back on the fathoms cards.

TSM sales

This week is headlined by some very nice BoE sales as you can see. The Crushproof Vambraces were bought for 155k and represent a very nice flip!

The Bygone Bee Almanac was a random drop while leveling, so very nice to sell it for 123k considering it was only ilvl 350.

I’ve also sold a good number of darkmoon decks as usual alongside the blacksmithing honorable combatant gear. Blacksmithing has been selling really way, and I am planning to increase my stockpile to post more of these.

When we look at flipping we can see that I entered a new market this week. I tried my hand at some Augment rune flipping. My first foray included a market reset that did not pay off much. I am sticking to a more regular flipping pattern now, hopefully I get some solid results so I can share my setup with you guys.

When it comes to materials you can easily see that the largest volume is still in Meaty Haunches and Stringy loins. These two items sell incredibly quickly.


My flask stockpile is slightly smaller this week as I managed to move a decent number of them. We can also see that I have bought a ton of tidespray linen. Including the bracers I have about 500k in Tidespray linen right now. My darkmoon materials stockpile is quite crazy and I will have to repost a lot to get them all sold as quickly as possible.

We can also see some BoEs showing up here, as I am getting a larger and larger stockpile.

Various materials, augment runes and panther show up as well. Overall my inventory is looking very good, but I do need to get slightly higher in some of the crafted markets. It may be time to start stocking enchants in full stacks of 20.

  1. Things definitely sped up for me this week. I have my Halfhill farm set up on three characters, and managed to unlock rank three of the garrison profession buildings.

    My progress: went from 26k to 73k.

    My next step, figure out how to set up auction buying stuff in TSM to my satisfaction. Stay tuned!
