Yes, next month Mists of Pandaria will be shipping or downloading as the case maybe so I thought I would bless the general public with my amazing plans and tactics for generating some gold and hopefully not get caught napping.
First I will talk about storage. After all it is pretty hard to do stockpile stuff if you have nowhere to put it (some people use the mailbox storage method but that is not for me). Bank slots are just not enough if you want to make an impression a guild bank will help lots and is easier to deal with (though not necessarily cheaper) than getting loads of profession bags.
I have two guild banks and two of my characters. One is a level 1 with 4 tabs and the other is a level 7 with 5 tabs, the second one cost me a cool 10k but I think it was gold well spent as I have decided that stockpiling is a better idea than trying to go into MOP with a large bankroll. Not that I don’t intend to gather as much gold as possible.
So now you got all that room surely you need something to put in there. Here are my ideas they may not work for you, heck they may be completely wrong but every little helps:
Netherweave cloth – I love the Shattered Sun Offensive and I like to use it when levelling alts. Combine a daily run with through Heroic Magister’s Terrace (still not got the phoenix or the Chocobo) and the result is oodles of the stuff. Uses include Netherweave Bags, Arcane Dust and Imbued Netherweave Bags.
Saronite ore – Stockpile when cheap (on my server that is less than 70 silver each). Saronite shuffle still has its good points. Infinite Dust still sells well 3-5g each, bars can be sold at a profit and transmuting to Titanium can even yield decent profits.
Herbs – Cataclysm herbs are reasonably cheap now 30g a stack so I grab them up as I can find them. I am also levelling a Druid with skinning and herbalism so all the cheap herbs she picks that won’t sell I send into the banks to be later turned into Inks.
Obsidium/Elementium ore – For me whichever is the cheaper is worth picking up. My main use for this is as enchant fodder as the gem market on my server is pretty much kaput. I will be prospecting in order to gather the gems needed for the first few levels in Jewelcrafting post MOP launch after all every little helps.
Saronite is SCARCE
Yep somehow it seems the saronite ore market is a little tight which has resulted in the price going up 500% and seemingly being sustained at that level. I think this has to be at least slightly down to the release date confirmation and people getting ready in their own way. Or it may be the dupe stockpile running out. Who knows?
