|Obsidium Ore Selling Idiots|
Obsidium Ore was listed at very low prices on the Auction House. Who would sell Obsidium Ore at such a low price? Probably ignorant and uninformed farmers or players too lazy to put these to good use. These Obsidium Ores were selling from 29 - 35g for full stacks, when I logged in early in the morning to hunt for deals. My Mammoth Mining Bags are now overflowing as I bought 8k gold worth of Obsidium Ore at this price. Wes, I beg to differ. The dumbest Warcraft players are on my server! Time to shuffle all these ores for major profits.
The Big Three Professions
The Big Three is the excellent gold making profession combination of Jewel Crafting, Alchemy, and Enchanting. It was an added bonus if you had an Alchemist / Enchanter and could take advantage of disenchanting the Bind-On-Pickup Epic Alchemist trinkets for Maelstrom Crystals. As of yesterday's hotfix, these are no longer able to be disenchanted. The Big Three has been very profitable through out Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, and now into Cataclysm. Jewelcrafting was introduced in the Burning Crusade expansion, so The Big Three did not exist during Vanilla World of Warcraft. If you are stuck and looking to expand your gold making oppurtunities, be sure to have The Big Three Professions covered.
