I pity people that sell Heavy Netherweave Bandages at the Auction House.
A while back a friend asked me to make up some high level tailored items then DE them for him. He has excessive amounts of netherweave and wanted to make some money off it. I put him straight, immediately. It’s not worth the effort. Just make Heavy Netherweave bandages and sell the to a vendor – 6g, straight up, no screwing around, no AH deposits or feed – Easy!
Day after Day, Week after Week, I buy a truckload of Heavy Netherweave bandages off the AH and sell them for a profit to a vendor! Why oh why would you sell Heavy Netherweave bandages on the Ah for less that 7g (let alone less that 6g) You can’t sell them for more? of course not, just go straight to the Vendor.. Do it Now!
I pity non-Enchanters.
Most of my time at the AH is spent buying green (and the occasional blue) items that people are trying to make money on. Good for you, you are lining my pockets. I pick up hundreds of items every week from the AH, that get sent off to my Enchanter to DE, turning those 1-3g trash greens into 5-20g enchanting mats.
So the question is, why aren’t you? Got time to level up an alt? Then make sure it’s an enchanter and farm the AH!
I am not sure if I make the majority of my AH cash from enchanting mats, but one thing is for sure, they are a constant income stream with very little risk.
I pity people without Auctioneer Addons (eg: Auctioneer Advanced)
This is the other way I make money on the Auction House. People’s ignorance (or naivety) of the value of items. People frequently post items between 10% – 50% of their AH value.
Now while I pity these people, I don’t take pity on them (OK, rarely I do. One time I sent some extra gold in the mail to a bloke that sold me an item well below it’s value. You know what the guy did? He return mailed me mats, free of charge, to make the item)
OK, so you don’t want to install AA, what do you do? How about AskPrice? Ask Price is a component of AA that will automatically respond with current valuation if you ask. Just type:
“How much for [this item]?” or “How much is [this item] worth?”
If there is an AA user in your channel, you will get a response.
Will it be correct, possibly not, but it is definitely more accurate that throwing darts at a dart board while blindfolded on a rocking boat.
Give these a try and see if you can fund you raid consumables!
PS: Thank you Larisa for taking pity on me yesterday and informing me of how bizarre my site was looking in IE. Note to wordpress bloggers, don’t put the More tag on formatted text.. the formatting will continue on down the page, and if you do like I did, and More headings in multiple posts, then things just get crazier than a Mage with an Arcane Spec!
Gnomer and Out!
