The Undermine Journal - review.

Hey blog viewers I wanted to let you know about a great site that I use from time to time. The site is great as you can look at data from all the different auction houses of so many different servers.  You can see graphs and charts that let you know what the price of things are on your server. This also lets you see what you can plan on buying items for low prices and when to get them.   The site  lets you know when someone has posted on the auction house, so with this site you can sit there and watch all of your competition. See when someone undercuts your banker or even when a deal comes up lets you know when it hits the auction house. You can look for items and see what markets are not even being posted to so that you can look into posting to those markets to get a bigger net going out to cover more items. The site also has a feature page of hot deals that are on your server now and are priced to flip. With just that page alone you are almost guaranteed profits, but I must say that you should always look with caution because someone maybe posting to inflate the price of the item for a while to screw with the data. The Undermine Journal has an add-on that works great for getting some information to populate your add-on with current prices.

Pod Casts.. Money making tips.

Today I am sitting here listening to a new pod cast and wanted to let you know about the pod casts that I was listening to:

the Mana Cooler - A world of warcraft mini-podcast. This show is really just what it says maybe sometimes as short as 20 minutes and sometimes as long as 45 minutes.

Power word gold- A frequent pod cast that talks about gold and what is going on with the economy.The host here seems to be a great guy who has regular co hosts.

The instance -  hosted by Scot Johnson,  Dills, and  Turpster. This pod cast is great quality and very professional in their account of what is going on with the World of Warcraft.

auction house junkies - Hosted by Cold and Wes. This is a gold making focused podcast that is semi often but full of great tips.

raid warning - A crew far from sober Hosted by Seven. This team focuses a lot on all of the great things of wow and of course they have a review of all kinds of adult beverages.

I use to listen to other podcasts but they have all died out. If there is a podcast that you listen to or are part of then I would love to check it out so leave a comment.

Pet Plethora. Fox Kit

Hey guys back with a new pet to look at this week trying to point you to all those pets that you might want to have but didn't know where to look. So I wanted to feature  the little guy Fox Kit. I was over in Tol Barad Peninsula trying to farm this for about 2 hours with no luck. From all the number crunching I have been doing with all of the comments posted to different forums it takes about 5 hours of farming and once you have killed about a thousand of them.  I also wanted to point out that there are critters in the area called Fox Kit these little guys are just critters so they don't count., Make sure that you are looking for the 16 Baradin Foxes. The Baradin Fox is averaging levels of 83-84 so as an 85 it should not be to hard to pick them off. As a Protection Paladin I was able to kill 185 of them in the time I was there.  Here is the route that seems to have the least back tracking you can take to get them.

milling prospecting disenchanting and doing it all at the same time

First before I get into the post of the day I have to warn you that the post of the day could be used in a bad way that would be against Blizzards TOS. The system I have here has been designed by me to be monitored and used on a very real 1:1 (keystroke:action) Be warned and stay safe. As Blizzard says if you are not sure please don't do it.

Today I would like to tell you about a post that I found over at the Consortium forums that is talking about a very nice way to get alot of stuff done in the crafting off times you can't really do anything. This mod works like a keyboard clone just the same as a multi-boxer would do. I have currently tested this on 3 different accounts that I had access to at the time. Now please understand that I am using the addon panda that you can get from curse. I also must warn you that you will destroy all the dis-enchant items in your bags so be sure to store those in your bank before doing this. I also like to use a mail opener addon and an auto mail send so that when the characters are done then they send the products back to their bankers. You will have to configure your addon.

 I found that using the macro /mass mill or what ever your character of choice is doing makes the various items easy. So make sure you can automate this with each character before trying to do it with all of them at the same time.  Then I set the macro to the 1 key and have a test if it mills my herbs. Use an addon like bank stack to make sure that all your bags are stacked up full and in even stacks. 
Then go to the next character and set it the same.

Ink Sales.

Ink sales from inscription is a great way to pick up a bit of gold. There are many inks missing on the auction house.  The best inks that I see to make/flip to the Lion's Ink, Ethereal Ink, and Ink of Sea. To make these inks make sure to put  in your snatch list the folloing herbs:

Wild Steelbloom, Grave Moss, Kingsblood, Liferoot,Felweed, Ragveil,Terocone, Ancient Lichen, Nightmare Vine, Netherbloom, Mana Thistle, Dreaming Glory,Icethorn, Lichbloom, Fire Leaf, Fire Seed, Tiger Lily, Adder's Tongue, Deadnettle, Goldclover, Talandra's Rose

According to the undermine journal  One Lion's Ink, worth 7g 50s, The Golden Pigment accordingly sells for just about 10s each and even to use 2 of these you have a cost of invested into the ink of only 20s plus the time and energy (what ever you value your time at) that you put into the ink. So There for you should see a potential profit from this of 7g 30 silver. Then of course you have the AH cut of 15% and the posting fee but even still you are looking at a great return on investment from this.  This same strategy can be used over and over on the Auction house and I will show you more how to do this. I just saw over at Markets for gold he was talking about something similar so check his post out too.

how to get to the gold cap in 5 easy steps

OK so really there is not any kind of post that anyone could do in any amount of time that would be effectively at telling you how to make any ridiculous amount of gold in just 5 easy steps. The easiest way to tell this would be to say
1. log in wow
2. post a ton of items on the ah at ridiculous prices.
3. check your mailbox
4. re post any expired auction
5. you are now a millionaire.

Now really I wanted to let you know that the bulk of the people I know who make wow gold do so with what we call micro-transactions. What this means is selling a lot of things that you make a small profit on many items. The idea behind this is that even if you are undercut in one thing you will still be able to sell in a lot of different markets. So the biggest thing you have to worry about is making sure to always have your items posted each day or time you can log in.

I personally have 3 different bankers let me introduce you to them:
this is a banker that holds the majority of my glyphs
this banker holds my gems and enchants
this banker holds all my materials and odd things that don't go to my other bankers.

With the various toons holding different things first it makes it easier to log in for a moment to a character and click the mail box and dump to my characters bags. Then go to the ah post go to the mail box and log the next toon.
The whole rotation for me takes about 30 minutes total. I use this method for when I just have a few minutes to log real quick and don't have time to go to all my toons.
