In a rich mans world

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 12:36 pm

Flowersz made over 1500 gold this weekend. Yup, patient that’s not a typo, and that’s in-the-bank money, she’s got about 400 gold in uncut blue quality gems in her bags and bazillions of unsold green quality gems. So Flowersz is now rich enough to buy training for epic flying, and Northrend flying – I think Parkin, her Headless Horseman’s mount is already capable of epic flying.

I’ve never made money like this before, its exhilarating! A HUGE amount of that money was made by selling a single Dragon’s Eye gem for 650gold. That’s one easy Jewelcrafting Daily for over 500 gold!

I’ve got some planning to do now though, I can go several ways….
a) I can simply keep on doing the JC dailys and sell Dragon’s Eyes for 500g or so until the market drops. Meanwhile still selling the two cuts I know and making a steady profit (again until the market drops)

b) I can save up 3 more tokens, buy another new design and branch out a bit more, I’ll then have 3 cuts under my belt. The issue here is identifying a market with a decent sell rate and a low number of producers. There are already cuts that are selling for less than the raw materials

c) I can buy a Diamond meta-gem design for 5 tokens (now Flowersz has hit the skill requirements) and try that market. I’ve no idea how big the price differential is between the materials and the cuts.

d) I can take a big gamble and save up 10 tokens (6 for the design and 4 for the Dragon’s Eyes) so I can craft an epic, hopefully shouldering in on in an underpopulated market with high material costs and correspondingly high profits. Flowersz will need to level her JC skills a further 20 or so points before I get access to these design. I don’t know if the market exists on my server for this yet. A quick estimate is that an epic should cost over 2600 gold! That’s a hell of a lot of money.

Actually all this is a moot and more than a little premature since Flowersz won’t have enough tokens for any option except the selling Dragon’s Eyes for another couple of days.

I’ll let you know what she decides (not me, I’ve got nothing to do with it!) when it happens.
