What did I do?

I only put in three hours this week. I spent most of it questing and I have been working on keeping stocked with all the 7.3 Epic gems. I have also spent some more time than earlier buying 101 BoEs to great effect. Since I went away over the weekend I got much more in sales than I had time to spend so my liquid gold hit 250k for the first time.

As we can see from my gold graph I have steadily been going up in liquid gold throughout the week before a massive spike. You can tell I was away for 3 days as there was zero changes in my gold amount before the spike up to 250k.


TSM sales

Some pretty nice sales this week. The biggest one by far being the Empyrial Deep Crown of the Quickblade for 71k. The right stat combinations can glean some very substantial profit margins to say the least. I have also sold my other Empyrial Crown and several 101 BoEs. I have finally managed to move some more obliterum as well by reducing the stack size to 5. Profit margins are lower, but it is still better than having them sit around forever. Elsewhere the Epic gems from 7.3 continue to sell really well. Argulite is still king followed by Lightsphenes.

I need to get some more Argus world quests done so I can craft more Empyrial crowns. Getting the Primal Sargerite is the bottleneck for me as I don’t have too much time and there’s a lot of other stuff I have been prioritizing over the Argus content.


You can see my resale summary below. The Demar’s was bought this week and gave me a very quick 8700 gold profit. Big Gamy Ribs have been pretty amazing to flip this week with a whooping 260% profit. Silver Mackerels have been almost as good at 183%. Cooking mats are my absolute favorite category to flip in Legion. If you haven’t tried it out you should, check out my posts on Legion Material flipping to learn how.


Both of my Empyrial Crowns sold so my inventory value is completely dominated by 101 BoEs. I have not set my 250k to work yet so my inventory is sort of depleted at the moment. I will start spending my gold again pretty soon to get some new stock rolling. We can also see that I finally got my obliterum moving and my inventory is now much lower.

I have some materials making an appearance. The bars sell slowly and are profitable, but not reliable. 101 BoEs sell decently as we can see, with about 100k in sales just this weekend. I will keep scanning for 101s and Legion materials to keep the ball rolling.
