What did I do?

This week brought patch 7.3 and with it a bunch of changes. Obliterum has gone down quite a bit in price and my main money maker so far at 110 has been left in the dust. I have done most of the enchanting quest line now and I have access to rank 2 ring enchants. Sadly they are not profitable to craft or to obliterate. I have tried my hand at a small bit of obliterum shuffling by buying stuff at the Auction House, but it has not gone too well. Hopefully obliterum starts recovering as people get access to cheaper Argus gear so Primal Obliterum actually has some demand.

I will likely swap out Engineering when I get back. My plan is right now to take up jewelcrafting and try my hand at some aggressive prospecting. The new Argus recipes for Jewelcrafting look AMAZING so I definetly want to do them. I have also been keeping up with my Nightfallen rep as much as possible for the rank 3 ring enchants.

The main reason my AH value is down is due to a change in my BoE pricing operation. It was vastly overpricing some of the rarer combinations I had.

We can see i spiked up above 150k before spending my gold on more BoEs


TSM sales

This week has been carried by BoE sales as we can see. I bought the Cainen for 22 000, the eyasu for 18 000 and the Ulfgor for 17 000. Total profits are very nice. I also found some completely mispriced goblin glider kits on the Auction house. I bought about 260 for 50 silver each. I have been selling the legion gathering profession glove enchants nicely and I am sill selling some materials. Obliterum has been much slower this week, with only 30 Obliterum sold. I have not been able to produce it profitably and the price has decreased from 2,3k to currently 1,4k.

My 2700 % resale percentage for the Goblin Gliders is pretty ridiculous. Sadly the materials are not cheap enough that crafting is worth it, but we’ll get there.


Most of my inventory is still in BoEs at the moment. II only have 5 obliterum and I have mostly stopped purchasing Skullblasters materials. I don’t plan to do anything drastic here until I get back from my vacation. Hopefully the prices have normalized slightly towards some equilibrium that gives me a better choice for what professions I should go for.
