What did I do?

This week I did not have too much time to level my character. I still made quite a bit of gold from flipping herbs and my gold is increasing nicely. With the return of the fair I finally got enough tickets for a replica item so hopefully that will sell for 26k which it is currently posted for.

I can start testing my hand at flipping BoEs now with my gold total so I will try my hand at those as well as keep up with the herb flipping game.

TSM sales


I had some very strong sales this week. A lot of random materials acquired from leveling mining and killing mobs have sold. In addition I have had continued great success flipping Legion Herbs. This week I even took a stab at some Starlight Rose and they sold really well. As you can see from my sales overview I mostly sell them in stacks of 200. I do occasionally reduce my stack sizes depending on what is posted on the AH and what I have available.

Still showing very healthy resale percentages. Most of the herbs I buy generally sell within 48 hours so the only thing limiting me here is scanning the AH for deals. Even if I only spent an hour in total logged in this week I still made decent progress.



The obvious newcomer in my inventory is the replical helm of heroism. It’s a piece of transmog from the Darkmoon Faire. Hopefully I can sell it as soon as possible to start investing properly into BoEs and trade goods. I am considering stocking up on some gems etc. in preparation for the Tomb of Sargeras opening up. A lot of this effect might be getting priced in already though. So far I have focused on fairly low risk endeavours.  feel like I should be more aggressive to really ramp up the speed. We’ll see how it goes.

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.

  1. Hello there. I am following this and I like it a lot! I’d like to ask you about the flipping. How do you know how to flip the legion herbs?
