I have been a viewer for a month or 2 for JMTC and i have finally decided to become more open now. I am skyfangs and i play on moonrunner horde side( I use alts as well to sell incase you do an undermine journal checking). It is a low population for horde and so the economy can take a hit, but i tend to manage myself there. I am always attempting ways to make gold and trying to obtain different professions. I am doing this because...well why not? I always have a 3 market rule to farming when i do farm, and i always go by a rule find the minimium profit potential and maximum material/time cost. If you are still happy with the results it can only get better from there.
As for my 3 market rule if i go out farming on my dual gatherer(lvl 85 death knight herb/miner), I make sure there is at least 3 types of markets to get into(jewelcrafting,alchemy,inscription,etc). This is to make sure the time i spend out there is worth it.
I tend to afk alot when i am on wow, but i spend a good chunk of time online mostly shuffling ore.
