What did I do?

This week I have been keeping up with all of my old markets. I did make a renewed effort into darkmoon decks and material flipping as I have been slacking off in those markets for a while.

In addition I have started cutting the prices on my BoEs. This is extremely evident in my total AH value that has decreased substantially. I have also sold a lot of BoEs though, so it’s evening out. I am sure I took some losses on some of them, but at this point I am just trying to unload in time for the new raid and new item level brackets.

I spent very little gold this week as I am not buying BoEs. I spent about 200k on materials, mostly for flipping. For most of my crafting markets I already have a lot of materials in inventory, so I don’t have to buy, but I will be looking for new materials when I can, as having a big stockpile is always nice.

My liquid gold increased by a whooping 1.1 million after hitting 1.3 million gold in sales. I am now just 300k of gold cap and I have another 267k on my other account so I expect the challenge will essentially be over tomorrow or the day after that!

As we can see this week had very nice and consistent sales throughout the entire week. I didn’t play much over the first 3 days as you can see, but then from the 26th and on my sales have been very nice.

Week 58 sales

As you can see my sales this week were much better. I sold a lot of BoEs, as well as several panthers and darkmoon decks. The BoE sales were for the most part at much lower prices though as I decided to start slashing them to sell off my stuff before Dazar’alor opens with the new item levels.

Outside of BoEs I have had great success with the Sinister Combatant gear. This week I added tailoring to my crafting repertoire as well as the blacksmithing gear that I have already had great success with.

I finally went back into material flipping this week. I bought materials across all of my markets when I could find them and I now have a much better stockpile. BilisOnyxia recently shared his success with this market on twitter which really spurred me back into it.

Week 58 Inventory

My inventory has not changed particularly much yet again. I am running low on panthers again after selling several of those, and my BoE stockpile is decreasing. I have also been processing a LOT of tidespray linen into expulsom and sinisted combatant gear so my tidespray linen stockpile no longer shows up.
