What did I do?

This week I finished leveling through Outland and I started hitting up Northrend. I got epic flying as soon as I hit 70 and I have done a couple of circuits of Hellfire peninsula to help level it. Sadly I’m still only getting nuggets, so I don’t thinks it is particularly worth it. In addition I have kept flipping herbs as in the last couple of weeks.

I can smelt both Thorium and Mithril now so flipping ore into bars is starting to become a real possibility for gold making. So far I have not dipped my toes into it, but I very likely will.

I have sold some random quest items from Outland as well and random drops keep selling semi regularly.


TSM sales

This week I filled out the entire sales window yet again. We can see that the main winners are from herb flipping again. All the Aethril I bought last Sunday sold pretty fast, and at the high markup I was hoping for. In addition I have sold some Foxflower and Fjarnskaggl at pretty good markups. I have also started posting all my cloth to the auction House and mining is finally paying a bit more off in dividends.

Shirts are still selling decently as are a bunch of random drops. The quick post from bags function in TSM is absolutely invaluable to get all this stuff onto the auction house in the fastest time possible.

You can see the resale values for the herbs I flipped this week below. Flipping herbs into stacks of 200 can allow you to post some pretty ridiculous profit margins. I think I am in love with this market now.



My inventory value is staying strong. We can see that fel Iron Ore is far up on the list. Hopefully I can smelt it next week and post it as bars to the AH. I am also looking forward to getting my hand on some Saronite as it is usually a very strong seller. Most of the value is still in random green drops that will take a while to sell however.

I still need to get some valuable production line going so I can start moving real inventory, but leveling is still the main priority.

Follow the challenge!

Follow me on twitter and twitch to keep up to date with my challenge. I promise I will actually be streaming it this week. My pitiful progress is starting to feel quite shameful! Please let me know if there’s anything you’d like me to try out or if you have any questions.

I will continue work on the format of my status posts going forward as I find a good level of detail versus effort. Please let me know if you feel like I missed something or want to have more or less details from the updates.
