Hey everyone, my name is Matt and I'm recently back to WoW after around a 6 month break. I also recently got my 2 buddys into this game and I decided to transfer my main character to a server of their liking. I've attempted to do the classic Obsidium Shuffle. The prices for enchanting mats are horrible on this server with stacks of Hypnotic dust going for around 10g, leaving me unknowing of what to do with the shuffle. All the green gems prices are also going from 1g to 5g.
Where You Are
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.
85 Hunter, Mattdaamon Dranei, 535 Jewelcrafting, 525 Engineering. My only alt is a level 71 DK with no professions.
2. What type of server are you on (Normal, PvP, RP, RP-PvP) and what is its population level and faction balance?
PvP, alliance kind of owns this server. It's highly populated.
3. How much gold do you have across all your characters? Do you have any large quantity (stockpile) of potentially valuable items?
I recently spent 4k on my DK's epic flying, leaving me around 1600g which I attempted the Obsidium Shuffle with leaving me with the gems not knowing what to do with them because of pricing.
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?
Not necessarily, I pretty much like doing everything. Daily's get on my nerves though. I play every night, some more than others. The nights that I don't really play are around 9-11:30 and then on other nights probably around 4 hours a night.
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.
I want to get to around 25,000-30,000 gold before MoP drops.
6. What is your long term gold making goal (e.g. 100,000 gold)?
Probably around 50,000.
7. Before now, what have you been doing to make gold?
The Obsidium shuffle, I've never had over 18k gold at one time though.
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.
Pretty successful until lately, since I tried it again I'm left unknowing of what to do with the gems everything is so cheap.
9. What aspects of gold making do you want to learn more about? What research have you done before now?
Probably playing the auction house but I'm bad with that kind of thing.
10. What is your tentative strategy for making more gold in the future?
Whatever it takes honestly, I'm broke right now so I need to make some gold
Help would be much appreciated, thanks guys
