What did I do?

This week I have been working on my reputations and some Order hall campaign quests mostly. I am a little over halfway from Revered to Exalted with Nightfallen and the rank 3 enchant recipes are looking like a possibility. I have also been keeping on top of the Argus Primal Sargerite world quests to stay on top of crafting Empyrial Crowns.

I have done some Obliterum shuffling, mostly through cheap epic gems, but the current Obliterum market is not doing well. I have also started more actively buying 101 BoEs and materials to flip.

As you can see from my gold graph I have been spending gold hard and fast, but my income has been quite high as well. I have had about 300k in total sales this week so my operation is at least gathering speed.

TSM sales

As you can see I have sold a lot of gems this week. Argulite has been the most profitable one, but I have also sold a lot of Quick Lightsphenes and Deadly Deep Chemirines. The Versatility gems are not selling to well sadly. I have also tried my hand at selling the Mark of the Hidden Satyr. I still haven’t gotten the rank 3 versions from Emerald Nightmare, but I’m hoping I’ll get it eventually.

You can also see that I’ve sold a BoE and one Empyrial Crown. I currently have two more Crowns crafted that I’m hoping to sell and a decent amount of gems.

As you can see from the resale summary below I flipped a ton of Starlight Rose this week. I have also been buying some gems to ensure that the price stays high. Flipping cooking materials continues to be a promising endeavour, the resale profit on those Wildfowl eggs is pretty incredible.



I have a lot of gold tied up in Epics now. I bought several new BoEs and I crafted two Empyrial Deep Crowns. In addition I still have a good bit of Obliterum lying around. Sadly demand seems to be really slow and it is not selling nearly fast enough. I got the pet Surger from doing Firelands Heroic on Saturday after I ran out of gold completely. Some Legion cooking materials have made a great comeback into my inventory this week which is great.

  1. I dont know on what server are you playing, but in my server (Silvermoon EU) the prices are about 50% or less like yours, therefore Obliterum is a no-go at the time. Its a great guide though, i red all the 26 posts and i just wanted to thank you 🙂 I also managed to make 180k profit with TOS BOE flipping in 2 weeks. ~cheers~

  2. I started a new toon on a server this week and am attempting this challenge. Something you didn’t mention in the rules was Heirlooms and the Heirloom mount. Did you use these or strictly nothing other than what you obtain through playing?
