What did I do?

So my liquid gold is way down since last week. I was at 190k then I am at 17k now. On the flip side I have doubled the value of my posted auctions from 1 to 2 million. I can probably finish the challenge quite fast if I just stop reinvesting my gold for a bit.

My sales the last week have totalled just over 1 million gold. So it seems likely that I can reach the mark quite soon. I’ll refrain from reinvesting my gold this next week, and just do some farming when I have time, and see if I can push my liquid up above 1 million. The AH value of my stock has really sky-rocketed lately and it definetly shows that it pays off to constantly reinvest your gold. I have dived hard into material flipping using my new settings, and it is going great.

I also did the Order of the cloud serpent dailies up to revered so I can now craft panther mounts. I haven’t crafted any yet as I am too low on gold to make any.

I have never been as aggressive before as I have been this week, and it will pay off down the line. The gold graph tells the tale as you can see that I have spent all my gold as soon as I get any.

TSM sales

You can easily see how my sales are accelerating from the summary above. Average daily sales the last 7 days is at 140k! versus 80k for the last 30.

Once again I sorted the sales by total price. You can see I sold a lot of BoEs, both 101 and 110s. I started flipping item level 900 and above items and it has been quite amazing. I have also sold large amounts of tradeskill materials as you can see. I met someone in trade chat who sold me 30 stacks of Fjarnskaggl at 15 gold per which I’ve been reselling at an average price of 23 gold.

All of my markets are booming at the moment and the only issue is that I am spending too much gold.


My resale summary below shows that ramping up my material flipping with the new auctioning operations has been very successful. It’s honestly been way beyond my expectations. The only issue is of course that I am sitting on a large amount of materials as sales are slower than my purchases, but that will work out over time. BoEs are still great as well with 4 bought and sold this week for a massive total profit.



My inventory value is now up at 1,6 million gold. Some of my material stockpiles made it to the top spots this week, but the rest is mostly in BoEs as you can see. I have a very large amount of Runescale Koi all of which I bought from the Auction House. The Fjarnskaggl was mostly purchased through trade.

I’ve been working on Nomi to get access to cooking so I can move my food materials faster, but I haven’t gotten any relevant rank 3 recipes yet, so I am sticking to posting the materials.
