What did I do?

I finished up Warlords of Draenor and got into Legion this week. I need to really speed up my gold-making efforts now. I’m finally looking at having access to Legion professions.

This week I went through a lot more catalysts than I did last week. They brought in a couple of thousand gold. In addition I kept selling all the random greens at 100 gold. They are slowly selling although my auction value has taken a hit. Sadly I have not sold any of my BoEs yet.

I decided to pick up Legion Jewelcrafting as an addition to mining to see if I can get some prospecting going. I only got  100 felslate and about 40 leystone ore at prices I like. So far it has obviously not been contributing much as I need to prospect much more. I am considering just going herbalism/mining for a while. The main reason I did not take herbalism earlier is because it is more or less useless pre Legion.

TSM sales

A bunch of smaller sales this week mostly. I started selling a lot of my Fel Iron Bars, and the Felwort I picked up last week sold. Sadly no BoE sales, but overall a robust amount of sales. I bought full Hexweave bags this week to minimize the time spent reposting, so that definetly made my operation more efficient. Old world materials still sell very decently overall, so if you are leveling make sure you put stuff on the auction house!

You can see I flipped my Felwort for a 60 gold profit per Felwort, netting me 1500 gold profit.


The Mir’s on this list are a drop I got from leveling. Sadly it is not worth as much as the list says as it is low item level. I wil try to sell it and hope I unload it. You can see my lone rare gem as well from my prospecting operation. I have a decent bit of Foxflower I picked up way below market value.

Follow the 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.
