Today I am bringing you another entry in my simple gold tips series. These posts focus on markets with a low capital requirements. You can easily dive in and start making some gold. Today we will take a look at the BfA vendor cooking materials that you can actually sell on the AH.
In BfA as in Legion all the cooking recipes require materials that are only sold by cooking vendors. In Legion you could usually sell these on the auction house for a couple of gold each, while they were 50s from the vendor. This would of course not make you rich, but it’s a very easy market to dip your fingers into and the risk is extremely low as you do not really have to spend a lot of gold to go into it.
The BfA materials
In BfA there are six vendor materials that are used in cooking. They are all listed below.
- Powdered Sugar
- Fresh potato
- Wild Berries
- Wild Flour
- Choral Honey
They all cost 25 silver each. You can buy them in stacks of 10 for 2 g 50 silver. You can buy them from these vendors.
The idea is then very simple, you buy a couple hundred of each of them and send them to your bank alt to post on the auction house. There are surprisingly many players that are lazy enough to buy these items from the auction house.
Does this work?
Yes, it does.
So far I have focused on Choral Honey, Foosaka and Wild Flour, but I will likely add all of them. If we look at EU region market prices in TSM they are pretty high as you can see from the list below.
- Powdered Sugar: 1g61s
- Foosaka: 3g12s
- Fresh potato: 2g1s
- Wild Berries: 2g10s
- Wild Flour: 2g60s
- Choral Honey: 2g30s
I’ve sold 1000 Choral Honeys this week for an average profit of about 1.5 gold each, so that’s 1500 free gold essentially. I’ve also sold a decent amount of Wild Flour
My TSM setup will post the materials in stacks of 200, 100 and 50. I have mostly tested out 200 so far, and it will prioritize the large stack sizes. If you want to fill out your operations you will have to buy 2000 of each material, but I suggest starting with a smaller number. 1000 seems like a good starting point, it will only cost you 250 gold. The import string is in my pastebin.
