What did I do?

AS you can see this was a very small half-week in terms of playing time. I did finally get my act together and started using mining. I bought a lot of copper and tin ore and melted a bunch of copper bars and some bronze bars. Some of them have even sold. I will be driving down the prices on copper bars probably as the prices are about 3 times the ore price and they haven’t sold yet. Gotta get some turn around. I am still relying on manual posting and quick post, although I should probably make some groups for Copper bars.

I did a dungeon or too and I also have a few more random drops that I can sell. In total my AH value has gone up a lot, mostly due to the bars.

TSM sales


The biggest sale is the Ornate Weapon. It’s a quest drop related to the Darkmoon faire. I think quick post underpriced it, and it would probably have been better to save it for the fair and get some replica gear to sell.

We can see that shirts continue to bring in a small amount of gold. More importantly we see that bronze bars are selling. I have sold 20 and my crafting cost is about 1.2 gold. So the 3.7gold price is pretty great. Hopefully some more of my bars will sell so I can keep doing this. I probably need to get my character out into the world to level mining soon. I have mostly been standing in Org and queuing for instant pop dungeons so far. I really want to do some farming runs in Wrath for Saronite as it usually is a GREAT seller.


The value of my inventory has increased by about 2 400 gold since last week, which is great! The main culprits are of course the bars, which account for about 1 400 of the gold. In addition comes various drops from doing dungeons.

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 hope to get into some territory where I can start accelerating my income soon, but I still need a few more levels. Flying will be a very nice boon for some of my ideas.

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.
