Gold Cap Challenge: Update 55

This week was a larger step back than last week. The main reason is most likely that I had very little time to play the game as we had some bouts of sickness around the house. I didn’t really play at all outside of what I did on stream on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

You can find the original post here and my earlier updates here.

What did I do?

This week was quite slow in terms of sales. I only hit 600k worth of sales. As we will see sales in both BoEs and darkmoon decks were both way down, as I didn’t play too much this week. I definitely did not restock any decks. 

On the plus side my AH value increased by almost 600k gold, so the expected value of the items I have on the AH is higher than they were last week. Couple this with a 370k loss in liquid gold and we get a week that feels like a setback. I have spent a decent amount of gold stocking up for 8.1, but my stockpile is overall fairly modest. 

We can see I did some major spending early in the week, and then my sales were quite slow throughout. I did not repost as often as I usually do, and this made a large impact.

Week 55 Sales
Week 55 sales, very few epics this week sadly

Overall this week was quite slow as you can easily see from the list of sales above. There are 5 BoEs, and just two Darkmoon Decks, when these two sources usually 

This means i do get to showcase some of my lower value sales for once though. As you can see enchants bring in a decent volume of sales, primarily for the ring enchants, which are selling MUCH better than the weapon enchants for me. I’ve also sold a couple of Kraken’s Eyes. I prospect them all myself, so they sell whenever I have them in stock. Owlseyes are still moving quickly as always. 

Material flipping has of course been incredibly slow as well as I have not been spending much time either buying or selling materials this week. As you can see from the resale summary below I have not done any volume flipping this week. 

Week 55 Resale summary
Very low volume of flipping this week, at least the margin on augment runes is nice and large


Week 55 inventory
My inventory is still primarily tied up in BoEs, with some noticeable outliers with a couple of heavily mispriced items including chemirines and the stormscale boots

My inventory is still primarily composed of BoEs. We can see that I had a nice crafting session of tidespray linen bracers this week. Now I just need to spend some time scrapping to turn them into expulsom. My Tiragarde Perch stockpile is still massive as the guy I bought them from just keeps posting them. His pockets seem bottomless. 

Panthers are still in stock, which is nice. I won’t have to worry about restocking them for a while.
