What did I do?

Due to easter I did not play my character too much the past weeks. I pushed my level to 40 and kept up with posting my stock on the Auction House. I did make a foray into the Darkmoon Faire, but I could not commit enough time to it to generate any meaningful profits sadly.

Sales have been steady as we will see and using quick post has been a great success to get a lot of random drops onto the auction house!


TSM sales


The two weeks since my last post have been quite good as we can see. I have made about 1000 gold and most of it off of posting random drops using the quick post settings of TSM. We can also see that the linen shirts are selling, and with a crafting cost os about 1-2 gold that green linen shirt has an absolutely amazing profit margin. Sales are slow however, and I am not posting as actively as is ideal.

The cooking recipe is from some low level quest as far as I remember and shows how incredibly lazy players are willing to be.


The value of my inventory has not changed much since last week, which is great! I have made about 1 000 gold liquid and my inventory value has increased slightly. Most of the increase is from random drops from my leveling escapades, so all in all I’m doing OK. I still need to get my hand into some crafting and I will starting to buy ores this week to flip into bars.

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.
