Pre-Cataclysm Rare Shirts

A very good morning guys. Today I bring you a very early blog this morning, in an attempt to give you a very good warning, regarding any alts or maybe your main, that you may have created prior to the release of Cataclysm, that may have some old shirts either equipped or stored in your personal bank.

As you’ll be aware by now, in a couple of days time, July 19th to be exact, the Legion pre-patch will finally be going live and this will bring the long awaited Transmog Wardrobe. As well as the ability to change the look of your Weapons and Armor, you’ll also have the ability to learn those shirts, Tabards you’ve collected over time. However, there’s some very nice shirts out there, most that are unobtainable any longer and these maybe equipped on old alts or stored in personal banks.

Now is the best time to quickly log into all of your alts and quickly check whether they have any rare shirts equipped. If hey don’t, fear not, simply check your bank too. Remember, we’re specifically looking for rare shirts that were starting shirts prior to the release of Cataclysm. Below I’ve added a list of the rare starter shirts.

Shirts:
 Brawler’s Harness,  Footpad’s Shirt,  Initiate’s Shirt,  Lookout’s Tunic,  Primitive Mantle,  Primitive Mantle,  Recruit’s Shirt,  Recruit’s Shirt,  Rugged Trapper’s Shirt,  Scout’s Shirt,  Squire’s Shirt,  Squire’s Shirt,  Thug Shirt,  Trapper’s Shirt,  Trapper’s Shirt,  Warder’s Shirt

If you’re like myself and don’t have any, feel free to check your Auction House as there maybe some there. Here’s a TSM String to help you search!

TSM Import String:
127,148,154,20897,20901,2105,23345,23473,23476,24143,49,6117,6120,6125,6134,6136

When checking the Auction House for shirts, be aware and cautious for shirts that may look rare, but are not! The shirts to be wary of are available from a vendor called Thomas Yance in Old Hillsbrad Foothills. I’ve added his shirts below.

Vendor Shirts:
 Recruit’s Shirt,  Squire’s Shirt,  Neophyte’s Shirt,  Apprentice’s Shirt,  Acolyte’s Shirt

Be sure not to buy these off the Auction House, many people will be looking to profit from those unsure of these shirts. The obvious trick is putting the  Squire’s Shirt on the Auction House and trick buyers, as this looks very similar to  Squire’s Shirt but both are different!

If you have no interest in using any of these rare shirts, MAKE SURE THEY’RE NOT EQUIPPED PRIOR TO PRE-PATCH as they’ll become soulbound on the 19th! Un-equip them and place them in your bag and get them on the Auction House asap. Most have a guide price from 50k upwards according to Wowhead, but they could easily demand a higher price, due to them no long available. Don’t be scared to price them very high at the start of the Legion Pre-Patch and if you get no buyers, feel free to slowly reduce the price. Alternatively, do what I’m doing and leave them as high as possible, as you’ll get a completionist sooner or later, the price will only go up as they become rarer as others get learned.

Hope this helps guys, have fun and see you in Legion! HYPE!

Ilvl 397 BoE Wrists and Boots Transmog

I’ll be honest, but I’ve kind of stumbled upon this today, but it’s definitely worth sharing just in case some of you have missed this too.

There are two vendors, one in Orgrimmar called Jamus’Vas and one in Stormwind called Faldren Tillsdale. They sell the old Valor ilvl 397 items, which are available for gold.  The items we’re interested in are the BoE (Bind on Equip) Wrists and Boots. These items vary from as little as 140g to 220g each (depending on your reputation) and the returns when sold on the auction house are excellent.

Now it’s important, that when you visit either of these vendors, and interact with them, that you use the drop down menu and select available to all and BoE. This will show everything available to all classes not just yours! Showing BoE (Bind on Equip) will eliminate items also available for BoP (Bind on Pickup). If you dont follow this, be very careful you dont accidently purchase something that is BoP. You will not be able to resell anything BoP. Ive made this error many times in the past with vendor recipes, something I learnt very quickly.

I’d suggest checking out TuJ (The Undermine Journal) too and check what prices these go for on your auction house. Once you’re happy with any of the items, buy one of each and post to the auction house.

Example:

Rooftop Griptoes

Bought: 450g
Sold: 5299g

ilvl 397 boots - transmog

As I always say, the Transmog market is a very volatile and competitive market, you may make a sale within hours, days or even months, but the Transmog market is one of patience, to reap the full return on investment.

The Secrets of the Darkmoon Faire

Many people within World of Warcraft will not be familliar with this strategy, but Ive been using it to my advantage for as long as I can remember and I have amassed atleast 45% of my gold balance from doing it. Now this is pretty limited, as you can only get the items during the the Darkmoon Faire.

Now, I can hear you asking, what is this big secret? well… it’s the opportunity to purchase Replica transmog items, from the vendor Baruma for a measly amount of Darkmoon Prize Tickets. The important part of this strategy, is to buy Darkmoon Quest Items, which Ive listed below this paragraph for you, once these are turned in, you will get a small amount of gold or experience (depending on your level) and more importantly the Darkmoon prize tickets. Do this on all your alts too, like I do. Remember, the tickets are BoP, but once you’ve bought your Replica transmog items, they’re BoE and tradable.

Darkmoon Quest Items:
Monstrous Egg
Fallen Adventurer’s Journal
Banner of the Fallen
Captured Insignia
Imbued Crystal
Mysterious Grimoire
Ornate Weapon
Soothsayer’s Runes
A Treatise on Strategy

TSM import string:
71635,71636,71637,71638,71715,71716,71951,71952,71953

You can buy each of the quest items from the Auction House for as little as 10g and as much as 500g for the higher demand items, you may even prefer to farm them. If this is the case, check the links out on the items above and see where they drop from. Personally, I buy them off the Auction House about 2 weeks before the Darkmoon Faire comes, as they maybe cheaper, than when it’s in Town. It’s a small amount of gold compared to what you’ll make on the Replica transmog items you sell. Dont forget to do the daily’s in the area too, whether it’s profession daily’s or the game daily’s for extra tickets, every little helps…

Quest – Silas’ Secret Stash:
As well as the Darkmoon Quest items above, you can also complete a quest called Silas’ Secret Stash. This can only be completed once on any one character and doesn’t reset! This quest costs 100  Darkmoon Daggermaw and you can buy this quest from the vendor Galissa Sundew at co-ords [52.88]. Once you have started the quest, you’ll notice that you’ve been given a set of clues and some treasure to find.

I’ve added a video below, from a very good streamer called oldbess. He does many awesome videos, helping his viewers make gold in Warcraft. Be sure to leave some feedback and a like if you found his video on this quest helpful.

The Replica Gear:
Instead of posting links for every Replica item available, I will instead link every Replica set, you can go through the page to see the individual items. You will also notice the item it’s replicating.

Replica Sets:

Cloth
Dreadmist Raiment
Deathmist Raiment
Magister’s Regalia
Sorcerer’s Regalia
Vestments of the Devout
Vestments of the Virtuous

Leather
Shadowcraft Armor
Darkmantle Armor
Wildheart Raiment
Feralheart Raiment

Plate

I  have made a Replica Transmog Import String for TSM which you can find HERE.

If you’re confident that you can get these items cheaper on the Auction House, feel free to purchase them to flip. I can sell Replica gear between 20-30k at the moment, so I’m happy to buy at 10k to guarantee a healthy flip.

Sales:
Each item within each set will be worth considerably more than another, this is where you’ll have the task to check your Auction House and see what the prices are and then purchase the best item that will maximise your profit.  Below are a couple of screenshots I took today showing what sales you could make, by investing in a small amount of gold and a little time.

Darkmantle spaulders SOLD                      Darkmantle gloves SOLD

  Darkmantle cap SOLD                    Darkmantle boots SOLD
You can find further images of my Replica Transmog sales HERE or simply check out my Facebook page or Twitter feed for recent sales.

I hope you found this post interesting, please do post questions if you have any, but more importantly, please feel free to share your sales too…

Thanks for reading!

Vanguard Plate Set

In my previous two posts, I covered the items needed to complete your Glorious plate set and Lofty plate set. Today , I bring you the Vanguard Plate set. Again, this is a recolour of the original Glorious Plate set. Most of these items, can be farmed from AQ20 (Ruins of AhnQ’iraj).

AQ20 is situated South of Silithus, Kalimdor.

Slot – Item – Average Pricevanguard plate set

Helm – Vanguard Headdress – 7k
Shoulder – Vanguard Pauldrons – 5k
Chest – Vanguard Breastplate – 17.5k
Legs – Vanguard Legplates – 50k
Wrists – Vanguard Vambraces – 8k
Hands –  Vanguard Gauntlets – 4k
Waist – Vanguard Girdle – 4k
Feet – Vanguard Sabatons – 3.5k

These items are highly desired and have an extremely low drop rate, whether you’re collecting these pieces for your own set, or simply farming transmog to sell, these items can easily net you anywhere from as little as 3.500g to as much as 50.000g. This is server dependent of course. Prices will fluctuate depending on your servers demand and competition. So be sure to check the Auction House to see what competition you have. As a rule of thumb, you can always use The Undermine Journal (TUJ) to get important information.

Ive had some success farming items from all three of these sets, but it really knuckles down to RNG and your luck. Drop me a line below and tell me about your experiences, or maybe you’ve made a nice sale, selling these items.

Anyway, have any questions, get in touch and will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for reading and good luck!

Lofty Plate Set

In this post, i’ll be covering the Lofty Plate set, which is a recolour to the Glorious Plate set. The items for this set can also be farmed from AQ20 (Ruins of AhnQ’iraj), but sadly like the Glorious Plate set, the items have an extremely low drop rate. With this being the case AQ20 is still the ideal place to farm these items.

AQ20 is situated South of Silithus, Kalimdor.

Slot – Item – Average valueLofty plate set

Helm – Lofty Helm – 18k
Shoulder – Lofty Shoulder Pads – 3.2k
Chest – Lofty Breastplate – 18k
Legs – Lofty Legguards – 9.5k
Wrists – Lofty Armguards – 4k
Hands – Lofty Gauntlets – 6k
Waist – Lofty Belt – 7k
Feet – Lofty Sabatons – 6k

Items towards the Lofty Plate set, can go for as little as 3.000g to as high as 18.000g on the Auction House (AH). So even if you’re not farming these items for yourself, they are still a nice little earner if you plan to sell them.

As posted in my previous post, you can also collect the Glorious Plate set and the Vanguard Plate set, these offer different colours to that of the set above. Always check the Auction House to see if there’s much demand or competition if you plan to sell any of these items. The Undermine Journal (TUJ) is a fantastic website if you’re in need of any details on prices etc.

Check out my next post where i cover the last set, the Vanguard Plate set.

Thanks for reading and be sure to share your success stories.

Glorious Plate Set

The Glorious Plate set is a very high demand transmog set which has an extremely low drop chance. You can farm the items towards this set within AQ20 (Ruins of AhnQ’iraj). AQ20 was a classic raid instance back in Vanilla Wow, it can be easilly farmed, with plenty of mobs to kill and loot. It’s without doubt the best place to go if you’re in need of items for this set.

AQ20, is situated south of Silithus in Kalimdor.

Slot – Item – Average ValueGlorious plate set

Helm – Glorious Headdress6.5k
Shoulders – Glorious Shoulder Pad18.5k
Chest – Glorious Breastplate4.5k
Legs – Glorious Legplates95k
Wrist – Glorious Bindings1.5k
Hands – Glorious Gauntlets9k
Waist – Glorious Belt5k
Feet – Glorious Sabatons9.5k

You can also farm items towards the Lofty Plate set and the Vanguard Plate set from AQ20 too. These sets offer a different colour skin to that of the set above. These are also on high demand, due to the extremely low drop rate. Prices for any of these desired items can vary from as low as 1.500g to anywhere up to 95.000g. It really knuckles down to your server and demand.

My advice would be to always check your Auction House (AH) to see whether there’s a demand for it and if there’s none there, good, go check out The Undermine Journal (TUJ). TUJ is a fantastic website, to get information regarding any item you can think of within World of Warcraft. You can see details like prices, amount posted on the auction house etc. Another thing to consider would be looking at downloading TradeSkillMaster (TSM). This addon has so much to offer, the information alone within tooltips is an absolute godsend.

Check my next two posts, highlighting the Lofty Plate set and Vanguard Plate set. Be sure to comment below if you’ve been successful enough to loot one of these items, maybe you’ve sold one and made alot of gold too.

Thanks for reading guys and hope the RNG gods are smiling down on you…
