What did I do?

This week I reformatted my computer and installed my new SSD. My old SSD was too small to fit WoW onto it, so this has greatly sped up my load times. I ended up clearing out the majority of addon settings as well so some TSM data was lost. It also meant I had one less night this week to play the game.

I still got in a strong leveling session and breezed through all of Cataclysm in 4 hours. Between dungeons and some questing in Uldum and Deepholm that whole expansion went by extremely quickly. Hopefully I can get through Pandaria as quickly. Once i hit level 90 I will see what I can do with the Draenor alchemy vendor shuffle. Turning catalysts into the Draenor philosopher stone and vendoring them is a great simple vendor shuffle, that I have had success with before.

I got into the Legion BoE market for the first time this week, buying a Gorrog’s serene gaze for 10k. Market value is about 21k so hopefully I’ll get a decent profit.

TSM sales

I had decent sales this week, primarily because I ended up unloading the gems I bought before ToS at a loss. I should probably have held onto them until Wednesday, but I wanted to get liquid.

I also sold most of the rest of my Potions of Prolonged Power, all of these were sold at a good markup so they were a much bigger success in terms of ToS preparation. I also got some decent sales of various Crystallized stuff from Lich King Mining as well as two darkmoon quest items (Monstrous Egg and Imbued Crystal). I have the Darkmoon adventure guide equipped so I have gotten quite a few of these.



My Inventory value has gone up by about 30k gold since last week. The main culprit is of course the Gorrog’s I bought to get into the Legion BoE market. Outside of that I have sold some Potions and steel bars, which have dropped down quite a bit. I have more Fel Iron Bars this week, both due to some farming and from buying some cheap ore from the auction house. Now I just need some of them to sell as well.

Outside of that there’s not been any great changes. If my herbs don’t sell buy Wednesday at my overcut prices I will have to start pricing them more aggresively. Hopefully I can unload them soon and dump some money into either jewelcrafting, alchemy or Legion BoEs.

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.
