Hello JMTC members. I have been getting kind of bored with WoW and got the idea to try playing the AH a bit (something i have never done). I generally stash almost everything in my alt bank and after some time will clean it out and sell a bunch of stuff, thats the extent of my AH experience. I purchased the 20k guide and am looking to get into this. Any advice you guys can provide that i can couple with the guide would be great. Thanks!
1. Please list the level, class, race and professions (and skill level) of your main and any alts above level 5 you have on your server, and on other servers if you plan to transfer them to your current server.
All on Hellscream US Horde
85 Orc Hunter 525 Skinning/LW
85 BE Priest 525 Enchanting/Tailoring
85 Tauren Warrior 525 Alchemy (xmute)/Herbalism
83 Tauren Druid ~500 Mining/~460 Engineering
80 BE Death Knight ~450 Blacksmith/~480 JC
85 Troll Mage No professions.
80 BE Pally No professions.
2. What type of server are you on (Normal, PvP, RP, RP-PvP) and what is its population level and faction balance?
PVE Medium pop i would say, 60/40 alliance.
3. How much gold do you have across all your characters? Do you have any large quantity (stockpile) of potentially valuable items?
I currently have somewhere around 80k. I Have tons of Wrath Gems and Herbs, and quite a bit of Cata herbs and enchanting matts.
4. Is there any in-game activity that you absolutely cannot stand and will not do? Approximately how much play time do you have in a typical week?
There is nothing i am totally against. I play about 3-4 hours per day, depending on what im focused on doing.
Where You're Going
5. What is your short term gold making goal (e.g. Buy a Vial of the Sands)? It's best to define goals in specific terms instead of general terms; for instance, "100,000 gold" is specific but "never having to worry about being broke" is too vague to determine if you actually have achieved the goal.
Short term i would like to get to 200k
6. What is your long term gold making goal (e.g. 100,000 gold)?
Long term, i would like to eventually see the Million Gold mark.
7. Before now, what have you been doing to make gold?
I have been farming old content alot lately for transmorg gear on my various 85's. This along with firelands dailies.
8. How successful have you been? If you made less gold than you expected, or lost money, please try to describe in as much detail as possible the process you went through and what happened afterward. Remember, more detail is better.
I have been making around 3-5k per week for the past couple months. This is about what i expected.
9. What aspects of gold making do you want to learn more about? What research have you done before now?
I would like to know how to maximize the professions and gold i have now to make more everyday with minmal work, since i enjoy several other aspects of the game.
10. What is your tentative strategy for making more gold in the future?
Right now i am going to start going through the 20k guide and try to learn as i go. I have never used a single gold making add-on or played the AH in any form. I have always kind of been a buyer and a get rid of it quick type of seller.
