What did I do?

As we can see from my stats I definitely hit this character a lot harder than earlier. I am now ready to start doing Outland and I plan to farm some Fel Iron as soon as I hit 60 and get access to flying. Outside of levelling as hard as I can I have started dabbling in flipping Legion materials. I have flipped Herbs and some rare gems so far. In addition I have sold out almost all of my bars, so definitely getting somewhere. You can see my success with Legion herbs in the screenshot below. Profit margins between 60 and 26 per cent is pretty amazing.

I have been using my own Legion flipping settings for buying, but I haven’t had enough material to post it in stacks of 200 so I have just posted my herbs manually in stacks of 20 using Auctionator.

I also flipped some Dawnlights that I got for 1200 gold and sold for 1700. In addition to this 2 Red Ribboned Wrapping paper sold for 500 gold each, which I bought from a vendor for less than 1 silver. In general the week has been great and my foray into herb flipping has been massively successful.

TSM sales

I actually filled the entire window with sales this week. We can see that the Herb flips and the Dawnlights are by far the largest sales. I have sold some random pieces of green gear, some shirts and some recipes as well as some other tradeskill drops. I will be looking for my next market to dip my toes into now as my gold has gone up considerably and I am now able to take more risk if I want to.



My inventory is doing well. I have a nice amount of Fjarnskaggls waiting to sell as well as a good amount of random greens, where hopefully at least a few will sell. I am now more or less out of bars and I am considering buying some more ore to smelt. Most likely I will get some more levels into both my character and mining before doing this. I am really looking forward to getting flying and starting to farm up some ore.

Follow the challenge!

Follow me on twitter and twitch to keep up to date with my challenge. I promise I will actually be streaming it this week. My pitiful progress is starting to feel quite shameful! Please let me know if there’s anything you’d like me to try out or if you have any questions.

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.

  1. Absolutely loving your 0 to 1 million posts! You can read online how to do this or that and what techniques to use, but this is a great way to see how all of those techniques can be put to use. It also helps understand the grind of what needs to be done since no one makes a million in a day (as far as I know). Thank you very much for your posts, I can’t wait to read the next one!

    1. Glad to hear you like it! We’re finallye getting places now so I expect the series will be even more interesting as we get into some real strategies.
