With the Mists of Pandaria release date finally being…well…released. It gave me the jump-start I needed to start playing Warcraft again to start getting ready for the next expansion.
To start, I want to begin a mini series once a week on this blog that gets me ready for the expansion I call “Preparing for Pandaria”
The posts will be about what I will be doing during this last few weeks of Cataclysm to be prepared for when Mists hits.
Today I’m going to talk about what I did for the majority of the weekend, liquidating all of my warcraft assets on the Auction House.
I’ve been selling everything in my banks that will lose value in the player economy come the end of September, disenchanted Items, gems and espically the leather I get through my skinning profession.
To optimize the leather that I gather through skinning, I realized that the price of goods are increased when you craft it into the next tier of materials.
There’s the price of regular Savage leather
The price of leather is 3.75 gold each
Then if you search the average price of Heavy Savage Leather…
…it ends up selling more than the regular leather.
Then look at the Pristine Hide, something you can buy with Heavy Leather at Twilight Highlands.
The price goes up to: 240g which is, again, more than if you just sold ten Heavy Savage Leather separately.
With a little effort I was able to make a <15 more gold than if I didn’t play a little bit of the Auction House. (3.75*6)*10= 225
For the next two months I will be farming and transforming leather that I gather from the Molten Front’s never ending supply of Spiders.
Also I will be using this method to reap in the gold from the Leatherworking on the Auction House the first few months of the expansion
But I want to know, What are you selling in your inventory to prepare your in-game money for the Mists of Pandaria? and Do you have any secret little tricks for earning more money from the profession stuff you make for the AH?
