What did I do?

I ended up getting back a day earlier than expected so I hit the ground running in WoD. I leveled to 94 primarily by flying around picking up treasures and doing bonus objectives. It’s a nice break from the questing and dungeoning.

I also picked up Draenor Alchemy and tried my hand at some Catalyst flipping, when I could find the catalysts. I also sold some herbs and ended up buying as many BoEs as I could find. I also spent some gold upgrading my bags to Hexweave bags so I can spend less time waiting on mailboxes. I did get some sales through the App while away and I am considering making a group and operations to post all my greens at some relatively cheap threshold, like 100 gold, as it seemed to work decently.


TSM sales

I finally sold all my Fjarnskaggl! Getting 26 400 gold back into liquid was the big happening this week obviously. I also sold a ton of other random stuff. I am most happy with the Mists of Pandaria materials which have sold for quite a bit. I also sold a couple of fel iron bars at ridiculous prices. Steel bars also sold and in total I had some really good income this week.

I ended up reinvesting most of the gold I earned into Legion BoEs. Here’s hoping this will lead to some sales going into next week!

I also made about 2000 gold from buying up cheap Alchemical catalysts and True Iron Ore and crafting the Draenor Philosophers stone trinket and vendoring it. If you can get the catalysts for less than 3.5 gold per you will be making a profit.


AS you can see there are some new entrants on this list. Primarily the BoE Items. I finally unloaded all my Fjarnskaggl, and could spend the gold on something else. I also bought some Felwort this week that I am hoping to flip for a profit.

Follow the challenge!

Follow me on twitter and twitch to keep up to date with my challenge.

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. Hey there,
    You mentioned an app? I’m relearning the game after being away since the start of WotLK. What app exactly?
