What's New In Gold Making for MoP?

What's New In Gold Making for MoP?


I have been struggling with leveling a Death Knight and gearing him for PVP and Raiding while leveling my warlock who was moved to a new server alone with only Enchanting and Tailoring. My Death Knight hs some other lvl 85 toons to help make gold. The real trick is to get all your craters to level 90 though. 

My main gold maker honestly is Tailoring and Enchanting. I am still forced to farm the Embersilk since hte price is so high due to the need for bags. the best and cheapest/easiest bags to get for the quantity of items you can fit in inventory and banks are Embersilk Bags and Illusionary Bags. Now the Illusionary Bags aren't so bad because you can make as many Dream Cloth as you want with Chaos Orbs since the Destruction Dream Cloth has no CD. The cloth is easily farmed with a Potion of Treasure Finding which these days are cheap and easy to make as well. the bags on my server sell for about 2.5k gold to 4k gold. Embersilk Bags themselves sell for around 300g-400g. Now as a Tailor you have access to an endless supply of cheap as hell Windwool Cloth which can be used to create all sorts of greens to D/E for Enchanting materials which can be used to sell raw or make enchant scrolls. I suggest doint some research on all mat prices and finished crafted items before deciding what to sell and at what price.

My inscriptionist is making plenty of the Fortune Cards themselves using a crafty barking method (Advertisement)  i learned from PowerWordGold.net. These "scratch off tickets" sell for about 8-15g each and are easily able to obtain or make for a cheap price. The rest is making sure to learn new glyphs to make while you chekc the market each day to find cheap glyphs to reset the price and make a killing off.

Mining has been helping me out a lot with JC but i haven't done much with it yet, if you have any ideas on what would be helpful with Mining and JC please send me your ideas or links to your blog with the idea.

MoP Weapons Shopping Lists To Flip

MoP Weapons Shopping Lists To Flip

I have put together a few simple shopping lists you can import to TSM to help you with finding the right gear to flip. These items are mainly for starting levelers going into the new zones of Pandaria.

For this first list I suggest not to spend more than 50g* for most of these items and try to not post too many at a time. I suggest  trying to post over 150g* for not at least, if someone is selling them cheaper for say 80g*, then post just 1 at 199g* or so and wait for the other to sell out (this is one of many ways to try and reset a market).

Uncommon (Green) Quality Weapons: Item  Level 364+ (Level 83-85)

This next list is worth a bit more than the above list but are still wanted and needed just as much. I would start pricing these at least around 200g* to start with. Make sure again not to spend more than say 50g* or so on each item to ensure profit from flipping.

Rare (Blue) Quality Weapons: Item  Level 433+ (Level 83-85)

Now this lovely list of weapons is a bit more special than the last two because of it's special nature. The Quality is Rare and the item level is 409 (much higher than the normal leveling gear that drops in MoP). They are only level 80, which means these are worth a ton of gold to the "Twinks" (PvP people that stop experience gain to stay at a specific level for battlegrounds and other PvP related activities).

I would start pricing these around 750g-1,000g*. Don't get anxious to buy them up though. I wouldn't spend more than 100-200g at most for one of these to flip, due to the special nature of the weapons. These might not sell fast but will make you a good profit if you are lucky.

Rare (Blue) Quality Weapons: Item  Level 409+ (Level 80)

Farming To Increase Profits

Farming To Increase Profits

During the time i have played wow as a gold maker i have found that crafting can be profitable and using addons to find out how much you should pay for each mat to make the most profit out of what you are crafting. I realized that some of the addons were very useful but i found myself sitting at the AH all day buying mats to craft more and more. I still have lots of mats sitting in my multiple banks awaiting my return so that i may use them to craft or sell in bulk as raw materials at a profitable margin.

This brings me to the part where i get out of the AH and the city and decide i need to stop spending so much especially for a  % of profit. What if..i know this sounds crazy and all but, what if i farmed the mats i needed to make all those scrolls and all those gems and all those glyphs or whatever it is i want to craft to make a few extra copper. Crazy i know, but it just so happens to work and it's not as bad as it sounds.  farming = (100% profit)  -  (time it took you) + (gold saved sitting at ah finding deals on mats). this is not a formula i would use in any strict manner but hey, looks good to me. When you return to the AH and you craft everything and get it all up on the AH you can spend that time you sit on the AH worrying about prices on mats, out and about farming up what is needed to keep the high profits coming in.

I am not saying that it is a bad idea to buy mats off the AH, but i am saying that you can save gold and increase profits by getting out and exploring Azeroth by farming.

If you have any great farming spots you would like share please leave a comment with what material it is and where it can be farmed at, along with any other details you can give such as where you got your info or possible requirements for said farming spots.

A few farming spots i can think of is for starters, Silithus which not only has some great rare spawns to farm transmog gear on the entire map but North West corner at The Crystal Vale, where you can kill air elementals to get Essence of Air which is needed for enchanting to make the BOA,  [Enchanting: Enchant Weapon - Agility]. I also enjoy taking a treasure potion and farming in Uldum just west of where you spawn from taking the portal over at Orsis where many air elementals are located. It is a really nice place to farm Volatile Earth at. Both of these materials i have mentioned can be produced by using an Alchemist's Transmutes however the Water to Air transmute is a waste in my opinion unless you have multiple Alchemists as it uses up your daily cooldown on transmute. The Volatile Air can be obtained from  [Alchemy: Transmute: Living Elements] by taking 15 Volatile Life and casting your transmute: living elements while on the map of Uldum however you will only get about 15 each time sometimes more sometimes less. I feel this is another waste as i can farm up 40-50+ Volatile Air in one hour of farming at Orsis.

I hope you enjoyed this short tid bit on farming for profit. If you enjoyed it and would like to see me in motion and hard at... *cough cough* work you can find me streaming once in a while at twitch.tv/shannonlasell.

Rare Mob by ID list for NPCSCAN addon

Rare Mob by ID list for _npcscan.lua

Download _npcscan addon if you don't have it already. You can download it here at Curse (http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/npcscan). Once downloaded start going over the steps below to add all rare spawn mobs (to the best of my knowledge is complete and accurate but could be missing a few as there are a lot of rare spawns in the old world).

_npcscan.lua (copy/paste code below to add all rare spawns to _npcscan)

Adding Rare Spawn mobs to _npcscan:

  1. Copy Code above in the text box.
  2. Open up World of Warcraft Folder and locate: WTF then Account folder then select the account, server and then the character you want to have the list (repeat for multiple toons).
  3. Now open up the SavedVariables folder and select _npcscan.lua file and open it with notepad or a simple text editor.
  4. Select all the text in the file and delete it and replace with the above code.
  5. Now save file.
  6. You now have the rare spawn list added to the specific character you used during the process steps above in Npcscan.

Making sure you don't ever cache another rare spawn after finding one:

  1. Log into Word of Warcraft and make sure you are not near any Rare mob npcs before continuing with the next steps below.
  2. Now log out of World of Warcraft and make sure the login screen or anything is up. (close up all WoW related windows)
  3. Open up "World of Warcraft\Cache\WDB\enUS" (enEU if you are playing on EU servers).
  4. Delete the file named "creaturecache.wdb".
  5. Now log into World of Warcraft.
  6. Now Exit World of Warcraft (this creates a new "creaturecache.wdb" file in the folder.
  7. Right click the file "creaturecache.wdb" and open Properties.
  8. Select the check box "Read-Only" and make sure it is checked.
  9. Now hit apply in the Properties and exit the Properties for that file.
  10. Open up World of Warcraft and start looking for rare npc mobs and happy hunting whatever it is you are looking for. =)

If you have any questions send an email to shannonlasell@gmail.com or send a private message on twitch.tv/shannonlasell if i am not currently streaming. I am more than happy to answer any questions while i stream on Twitch.tv/shannonlasell and i hope this information was useful. Enjoy and Kill some Horde or...i guess if you want Alliance but i would not recommend doing so as the Gnomes are short tempered and might stab your ankles.
