World of Warcraft’s New Expansion Leaked (Spoilers inside)

The internet’s gone crazy today, as it appears Blizzard have submitted a new trade mark in New Zealand, POSSIBLY for their new expansion; World of Warcraft – Battle of Azeroth. Many people are guessing it’s the new expansion, some think due to the New Zealand connection, maybe it’s the next part of the Warcraft movie… only time will tell!

A copy of the submission below:

new wow expansion

It’s important to remember, that this hasn’t been confirmed yet, this has only been found online and things will become more evident in the coming hours, with the start of BlizzCon. Thankfully I have my virtual ticket, so here’s hoping they release some info on the new expansion at 8pm GMT tonight!

Damn I’m really looking forward to this now…

Week One Sales & Catch Up!

Good evening guys and welcome to my weekly blog; looking back at my sales for the week ending (30.10.17). I hope you enjoy this, and maybe find some ideas for alternative markets to get involved in.

It’s been another great week as a crafty Goblin, managing to hit gold cap again on another alt realm. Sadly… the lack of a Guild bank, meant I spent 2.9m on 10 wowtokens (290k each), so I could loot the remaining gold from my mailbox. These tokens have raised my Blizzard balance back up to cap (£200). I have future plans to transfer some alts to pastures new, so the balance will go to good use.

Here’s a summary of the liquid gold I currently own on my 3 accounts. The 2.9m for tokens has already been subtracted from the total. (Addons used: Altoholic, TSM3)

The grand total is 78.56m, this is an increase of 2m (5m if you include the 2.9m above) since the 16th October, from my last review on Twitter. Below is a collection of my sales from many of the realms I operate on. I hope this format is easier on the eyes, than my previous posts on Twitter. I’d happily agree that 15-20 posts in one day, condensed to one blog post is definitely easier on my eyes!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you can see, my main markets are Legion BoEs and Battle Pets. These are easy markets to get involved in for me. The BoEs are currently in high demand, due to level 101 twinks and Battle Pets offer great versatility, basically because of the ease of transferring them to low populated servers for insane profits.

Please do remember that I play on E.U and Battle Pet prices are far greater in value, than those on U.S. realms.

I also dabble in Transmog and Profession crafts too, but the inability to run cancel scans regular, mean my sales are very low. These can be very profitable markets if you have the time and patience to cancel and re-post often; thus meaning your auctions are always at the top. Take advantage of raid days too, this is when I try and log in on my main and take advantage of those raiders looking for consumables etc.

If you know me well, you know I don’t farm anything anymore, well…  you could suggest I farm the Auction House LOL!! Whatever I sell, you can bet your bottom dollar that it originated from the Auction House. I buy at a maximum of 50% it’s value and aim to sell at a min 105% it’s value. This is just a rule of thumb, so it makes it easier to track my profit. TSM3 accounting is unable to track individual ilvls and different stats on items for Legion BoEs, so this is the quickest alternative for me. I used to have a bog standard spreadsheet covering purchases and sales, but it got too time consuming!

Here’s some highlighted sales, in no particular order:

Eyasu’s Mulligan – 237k
Treia’s Handcrafted Shroud – 237k
Sash of the Unredeemed – 336k
Cyno’s Mantle of Sin – 356k
Talisman of Jaimil Lightheart – 242k
Geta of Tay’Shute – 356k

Some excellent flips, if you follow the rule of thumb explained above.

Before I finish, may I take this opportunity to remind you of the awesome news recently revealed, that TSM4 is on the horizon! If you’ve not used TSM up to this point, don’t threat, there’s no time like the present! Check out this great article on TSM4 HERE and see how you can get early access in late November. Gumdrops, who is a familiar face on woweconomy, is also part of the TSM team. He also streams on Twitch and offers many Q&A TSM streams, so if you’re looking for advice, check him out – he’s an awesome gold-maker too!

Until next week, thanks for reading…

New Weekly & Monthly Sales Reviews Starting Next Week 30/10/17

As of the 30/10/17 I will be transferring my Weekly and Monthly sales reviews from Twitter on to my blog here. It’s clear that there’s been a downturn in traffic and interest in these posts in the last 2 weeks. I can only imagine that the amount of posts posted, with limited information has become somewhat tedious to my readers. Sadly Twitter restricts you to how much you can input into these tweets, thus starving readers of information etc.

With that said, I will post a weekly blog hopefully on the following Monday, looking at reviewing the previous weeks sales. This will be condensed into one post instead of the 16+ on Twitter! I will then add something in the same context at the end of the each Month, highlighting the best sales and my current gold balance to date! If this interests you, then be sure to click on the Follow tab on the right hand side, for updates on my next blog post. If this turns out successful and people prefer this method, I may add something further, showing my purchases and what I’m investing in for the future.

If you have any suggestions even critical comments, please do offer any feedback below. I’m making an effort to try and share what I’m doing and hopefully others can copy and make a lot of gold too. WoWTokens are at almost 300k on E.U so I’m sure those willing to invest in in-game gold, to pay for their game-time, could do with as many tips as they can get.

Until Monday… thank you for reading!

Battle Pet Import String for Legion 7.3 (Complete)

(Updated 15.11.17: Includes both level 1 & level 25 Naxxy)

I’ve decided to remove all the previous outdated Battle Pet strings as this may lead to confusion and may conflict with future versions. As of today (05.10.17) this import string is complete, including level 1 and level 25 for every trade-able battle pet.

Like previous versions, I’ve split the string into two groups, as the complete group is far too large to import in to one import. The two groups are A-M and N-Z. These strings DO NOT include price strings, this is to prevent any potential issues. I also wouldn’t advise using price strings from someone else, as economies differ on different realms. My price strings are set to different realms and not based on an average like in the past. This is because wow-pets.com is no longer being updated.

Directions for use:
One: Backup your TSM3
Two: Create a group in TSM addon called Battle Pets
Three: Select the import/export tab and import A-M string!
Four: Once you’ve imported it, enter /reloadui in chat to save your import
Five: Once reloaded, reopen TSM and Import N-Z
Six: Again /reloadui once more to save that import.

Here’s a screenshot of what the group should look like, once successfully imported and group layout expanded. If you do not follow the steps above, then you will have a group missing, or maybe pets missing, so please follow careful!

When you do a search on the AH, please be aware that scanning times may be very high, due to the sheer amount of Battle Pets you’re searching. If you’d prefer to use a different search method, I’d recommend entering this into the TSM AH search box; /Battle Pets/i25 for level 25’s and /Battle Pets/i1 for level 1’s. This is slightly quicker and just use your tooltip with your price strings, to evaluate whether to make a purchase.

Please DM me on Twitter if you experience any issues, or you need some advice and I’ll get back to as soon as possible. This is the quickest method of contact!

Thank you to Sheyrah for the /reloadui tip, for updating TSM to prevent loss of data on multiple imports. Also a big thank you to Muffins for the Battle Pet ID’s for 7.3. Without these, this wouldn’t have been completed as quick! Muffin works within the TSM team, also known as TheOneOnDruryLane.

I’ve added their Twitter accounts, be sure to check them out!

Legion 101 BoE Import String for TSM3

Hello and long time no see to my avid readers oh and of course, my new ones 😉

Apologies for my absence, but you were warned…lol. As I guessed, time has indeed been very precious and with any free time available, I’ve been trying to play some of the new content… that is 7.3 – The Tomb of Sargaras and dominate the AH. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the new expansion and I’ve made a lot of gold in the process.

With the boring stuff out of the way, I have a little treat for you all, which you might be interested in. Today I bring you my import string for LegionBoEs. As you know, I’ve been buying and selling LegionBoEs throughout Legion and have made millions of gold doing so. If you don’t believe me, feel free to check out my Twitter posts via the hashtag #LegionBoEs and you’ll see a lot of my sales. I’m currently sitting at approximately 56m liquid gold and well over 100m worth of LegionBoEs in stock as of 21.08.17.

If you would like to use my import string, please click HERE and you’ll be directed to my Pastebin.

Disclaimer: Please also be aware, that this is not complete and its very unlikely that anyone has a complete list. Also, this list has been created with some item IDs from Muffins (aka @TheOneOnDruryLn) whom works within the TSM team. So many thanks to him for his hard work. If you would like to check his GitHub, for future item ID’s then here’s a link to his page HERE.

Directions for use:
One: Backup your TSM3
Two: Open your TSM Addon in-game and create a group called Legion BoEs
Three: Click on Import/Export Tab and Import the string
Four: Once Imported, in the chat box, type /reloadui (This will update your TSM files).

Once you’ve followed those steps, you should have a group looking something like this;

blog pic for legion boes

Open up a specific ilvl (as shown above) to show 4 groups; Normal, Socket/Extra Stat, Leech and Leech & Socket. As this isn’t complete, some may not have four groups within, but you can update this at a later date. The 4 groups are straight forward to understand, but I will clarify below.

Normal = Normal item with no bonus stat or socket
Socket/Extra Stat = An item which contains a socket, bonus stat or both
Leech = Item contains Leech (Expensive)
Leech + Socket = Leech and a socket (Very expensive)

Creating your Price Settings: You will need to decide what price settings you wish to add to each given group. Normal, will obviously be regarded as a low commodity, Socket/Extra Stat (i.e Speed) are useful, even just the socket alone is useful, due to the increase in your main stat. An item with Leech or Leech+Socket will demand a higher asking price, so set your prices to reflect this. Do this for every group and ilvl. Please also consider that realms have different economies and populations, so items hold different valuations, so you may need to change your price strings dependant to each realm.

For anyone questioning, why LegionBoEs are so expensive and in high demand, it’s simply because of the stats you get on the gear. With Legion, mobs scaled to your level, so if you’re lvl 101 with ilvl 830 you’ll be a 101 with stats of a 110 with ilvl 830, you’re easily out gearing the content for your level. This makes it viable for people to gear out a 101 (preferably a Boomkin) and boost players to 110 via dungeons. A lvl 101 ilvl 830 that know’s the dungeon, can easily boost four players to 110 and can make a lot of gold doing so. Obviously, you need to invest in the gear first, but the reward is amazing. If you don’t know Umren, then check out his video below, he’s running a Frost DK in this one, but it’s simply showing you what you can do. Frost DK is a good class, but I’d still recommend a Boomkin.

Armory: Umren

Important Reminder: TSM doesn’t recognise the different ilvls, so accounting wont show the correct purchase/sale data. This will have to be done manually by yourself. When you find an item, that isn’t within a group, simply go to the specific ilvl of your item within TSM, find the group that your item will belong to and select the import tab and as long as the item is in your inventory, it will show up in the ungrouped items, simply add it to your groups. The same strategy as importing level 25 BattlePets into TSM.

I’ve tried to add as much information as possible, apologies in advance if I’ve missed anything. I’ve credited everyone for their work, please drop by to them to show your appreciation, with their help, we get to do what we’re doing today!

That is all, if you have any issues, questions or need advice, I’ll try and help where possible. Any TSM issues, should always be taken to the TSM website. Copy any error codes you receive as they should help clarify your issues. Any other questions or advice, feel free to DM me on Twitter!

Thanks for reading and good luck!

The Legion 101 BoE Dilemma

I’m sure a lot of you have noticed that a lot of players have taken a break from World of Warcraft. You can see this via the realm selection page upon logging in. This could be a magnitude of different things, mainly, waiting for 7.2 and the influx of big game titles recently released. But with that drop in players, come the joy of lack of competition on the Auction House and sadly, more importantly, a lack of customers willing to part their gold, for your items. That being said, I think it’s fair to say, there’s a dilemma at the moment, whether Legion 101 BoEs will continue to be as profitable as before.

No known release date has been set for 7.2 yet, but with any new patch, comes new content, via (World) Quests, Dungeons and Raids. This in-turn, brings another increase in the ilvl. With respect to Legion BoEs I think the current highest ilvl is currently at 880. With the new content, we could see an 885 or higher item. With this, it COULD bring the prices down. This is currently evident with Legion 110 BoEs, where people are only buying up 900+ ilvl BoEs, with items below 900 dropping dramatically. It’s important to remember that there’s more versatility in the 101 BoEs market and will likely hold a little more value, but it’s hard to imagine how much value. This is the dilemma, of knowing whether or not to invest.

What I’ve been doing as of late, is playing it extremely safe. If i see an item, very cheap, I’ll buy it up, but paying a lot more attention to the amount of that item currently on the AH. No point buying something, if you cant make a profit, more importantly, there’s no point buying it, if there’s another 5 (of the same ilvl) on the AH and you don’t have the intention to buy out your competition. If you read my previous blog, you’ll know I’ve been buying items at 50% value, knowing i can double my gold, now I’m looking at buying at 25% to minimize the risk.

I know a lot of you through Twitter, are playing the 101 BoE market and are having a lot of success through it, which is awesome! but I hope you can take something from this blog and be very cautious. I currently have a lot of 101 BoEs spread around different realms and it’s hard to imagine, that if there was a crash, how bad it would affect me. I’m sure it will have a larger affect on you guys than myself, but posting this blog, may offer a little warning.

On the upside and I’m thinking relatively optimistic here, 7.2 may bring a lot of players back wanting to level their alts, thanks to flying. If this is the case, the 101 BoE market may actually thrive, thus items holding their value or greater. The first couple of weeks into 7.2, should give us a good indication, on where we’re at.

Now do you see why this is a dilemma?  Roll on 7.2!

If you’ve been under a rock since Legion dropped and don’t have any idea about Legion 101 BoEs, then check out my blog or check out my sales on Twitter under #LegionBoEs

Updated Battle Pet Import String v.4 (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

Good evening guys. Finally… yes finally, I think I have completed my Battle Pet Import Strings. Well, until the next patch comes out and more Battle Pets come into the game. Whilst every care was taken to create these groups and settings, if you do come across any errors that need my attention, please do contact me via Twitter and I’ll gladly help you out where necessary.

On this occasion I’ll be sharing three strings, two which have the Auction & shopping Operations included. These had to be split up, due to the size of the group. When you import these, make sure you /reloadui after the first import. This will write the info to your addon files and obviously refresh TSM. The other one, is without operations and easier to import. Simply copy the string you wish into your TSM3 which will benefit you the most. Please make sure you back up your TSM3 prior to importing, in the case of any potential issues/errors. If you do experience any issues, please do let me know on Twitter.

If you want to share these strings, please do so, but credit me where possible! I’ve spent a lot of time creating these and I always credit people their work I share, I would appreciate the same please. Please DO NOT sell these strings either, these are created to help others, not to profit from them.

Battle Pet Import String v.4 WITH Operations A-M

Battle Pet Import String v.4 WITH Operations N-Z

Battle Pet Import String v.4 WITHOUT Operations

Reminder:
Thanks to Peelyon, Super Squirt is on Sunday 12th Feb, so if you wish to power level any Battle Pets from 1 to 25 please follow his guide. Also, don’t forget he streams on Twitch too. He has a depth of knowledge on Battle Pets and making gold within Warcraft, so be sure to drop on by and check him out.

Many thanks for reading and hope you benefit from these strings. Until next time.

Flipping Upgraded Legion BoEs (level 101+) ilvl 835-870

Today I want to share with you, the amazing sales you can achieve by selling/flipping Legion BoEs. I’ve been doing this since the release of Legion and I’ve made millions from flipping them on the Auction House. Don’t threat, it’s still worthwhile doing today, but always bare in mind the size of your realm and it’s economy, as each realm differs in prices etc…

So what are Legion BoEs? These are Bind on Equip items, that you can equip from as low as level 101 and you can loot them from mobs you’ve killed. At the moment, these BoEs start at ilvl 810, but the upgraded ones, the ones we want, start from ilvl 835 and go as high as ilvl 870 (7.1) So for example, you could easily deck yourself out in ilvl 870 at level 101 if you were fortunate enough to get enough of the items. It’s important to remind you at this point, to be extremely careful when purchasing these, as you can easily purchase the level restricted items… which to be honest, are of no benefit for this strategy.

To give you an idea on how strong this is, imagine that when you hit level 110 in 7.0, the ilvl you were aiming for, was ilvl 850. Now,  imagine being able to hit ilvl 850 at level 101! The term overpowered comes to mind, right? Well… you’d be 100% correct. It’s this reason, which makes this gear so appealing. It gives us the ability to power level our mains or alts. Okay, it may come at a cost to do this, but don’t be deterred, there’s a lot of people out there willing to shell out a lot of gold, to level their characters as quick as possible.

Below is a list of the items, you can buy, or loot. You’ll also see, that I’ve added a max purchase price and an average sale price. This is just a guide at what I look to pay and sell items for, your prices may differ due to the different server economies…

legion-boes-image

 

If you wish to search these items on the Auction House, there’s a number of different ways to do so. You can do a search and input the following: /101/101/i835/armor This will search all the items following that criteria. I don’t have a TSM import string, as TSM doesn’t recognise the different ilvls. Or simply search each item individually.

I suppose there’s only one way to prove how worthwhile this is, so I better show a collection of my screenshots that I’ve taken from my recent sales.

 

 

As I always stress, if you wish to keep up to date on what I’m buying and selling, follow me on Twitter, I post a lot of sales and always answer any questions that come my way. Alternatively, you can find me on Facebook too. But… if that’s not enough, you can also find me, helping out in Peelyon’s stream on Twitch, where I will answer any questions in chat.

I hope you give this a go guys, let me know how you get on. Good luck and again, I wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Stay safe!

Finally back and raring to go…

Well, I’m finally back from the shadows and raring to get back into gold making. If your following me on Twitter, you’ll know that for the last 4-6 weeks, I’ve had my kitchen, toilet and bathroom gutted out and redecorated. I’m pleased to say, that the work is now complete and hopefully, that will be all the decorating for the next Month or two, well… who knows what the new year will bring eh?

Anyway, I’m working on my next blog post and will hopefully have something published at the end of the day, if all goes well.

Although, my time has been very tight, I’ve still managed to log into the game, when possible and post my auctions. Again, if you’ve been following on Twitter or maybe my Facebook page, you may have seen some awesome sales I’ve been making. My blog post today will highlight a massive portion of what I’ve been selling and what you can do to get involved and replicate the sales yourself.

Last but not least… I wish all my readers and Twitter followers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, stay safe!
