Briarthorn

In the Process of Leveling an additional Alchemist, I ran into a problem early on as Briarthorn is never in stock and it is very valuable to powerleveling as it is used by many recipes across a variety of skill levels.  So I am adding this to my stockpile list.  I predict this will be a big seller for power levelling goblins.  So check your markets for things that are in low supply on your server and see if you can find somethnig new to flip.

Web Based AH is Garbage

Beta AH is now all servers. Granted I know it is just Beta, but the new AH access thru the web is GARBAGE. Slow as hell, quantity limits, errors when batch posting, page reloads, and crashing as you swap tabs. Hrm...Don't waste your time yet.

What the Fudge (But I Didn't Say Fudge)!

I have found an annoying bug that scares the hell out of me every time. I log into the game and the character screen loads, as I scroll thru my characters everything looks normal until I get to my Main. And there he stands wearing nothing but his Argent Tourney Tabard. My heart sinks as I log into him to find everything intact. I have NOT been hacked. This bug alone makes me want to buy an authenticator. anyone else have this problem?

Easy Profits: Arcanite Bars

Arcane crystals have become dirt cheap after the crash of the thorium bandwagon. Coupled with low priced thorium ore/bars the Arcanite Bars are very profitable. I had been selling Arcanite Bars for 75g each for over a month before someone else caught on and has been posting at 15g per bar, and still turning a big profit. Transmute Spec Alchemy makes even more cash off this simple item. Lots of people are levelling new tradeskills is why they sell.

Current Projects

As expansion end nears, I been doing some achievements on my main, and getting recipes for items I didnt have yet. Currently working on fixing Bloodscale Rep, Got the Yeti pet pattern, Working on Outland Loremaster, while farming neatherweave for bags in the process. Basically pulled out of glyphs, gems, and titanium bar markets temporarily, as profits still exist, but are not at the margins I prefer to spend my time investing in. Will hit them again after new patches.

Cuergo's Gold

While grinding pirates repairing Steamwheedle Rep, I got map fragments to make 2 Cuergo's Treasure Maps. Completed the quest once and got my +350 Gadgetzan & Horde Rep and the junk rewards. Sold the 2nd on the AH for 350g buyout the same night. LOL WTF? This quest doesnt even count towards Loremaster or 3000 quests completed achievement. So I guess its good to buy one for easy rep. Made me wonder if I can buy the map pieces off the AH and repost fully completed maps. Might be worth a try and sell for a profit.

Stupid Goblin

Reasons why the Tundra Traveler's Mammoth is a viable purchase.
1) Vendors: Reagants, Ammo, Food, Water, General Goods & Repair!
2) Ability to sell vendor trash without wasting time going to town.
3) Carry Dual-boxers with you for ease and speed.
4) 3 Man Pvp Gank Squad.
5) Less wasted time means more Gold-per-hour.

Stokpile Giggles

Stokpile said, "One other thing to keep in mind is that there's always a hgue mini pet craze whenever any new or otherwise rarely offered but easily obtained pets are released. So make sure you go to the pet vendor in dala and buy a few of her little cuties and sell them for a profit as well."

I experienced this on my server with all my pets. My sales of Faction transferred pets skyrocketted and I sold out of every Engineering pet I had.
