You probably wondered why I haven’t posted about World of Warcraft in a while. The simple truth is that my motivation has been steadily declining with the lack of updates and content. Just do the math, from November ’11 to Sept’12 that is 10 months and fees without new content …
I know people are always doubting if my business model in wow really works. What I am doing it to keep stuff at a high price at the auction house and never undercut anyone. In fact my prices are often 5-8 times higher than normal and people often write me nice mails that I am crazy … but what can I say … it works!
Since the achievement system went live I reached 2 million gold acquired, 4666/day since the last summary in october.
Today is the 2 year anniversary of the achievement system and it seems to be the perfect moment for a new statistic breakdown.
Quite surprisingly, due to slacking ingame the total amount acquired gold has risen significantly since march. Even the daily amount of earned gold is above 2k now.
It has been almost 18 months since the introduction of the Achievement System and the statistic tabs of my characters show an impressive amount of 966 000g total gold acquired.
Roughly 1 year after the introduction of the achievement system I have acquired an amount of 800713g gold. For further information click here.
Generally I like to avoid selling Blues and Epics, because I find it rather difficult to find the balance between making most profit and getting people to buy my auctions. Also the pure profit is usually much lower than selling for example Glyphs. Basically the same principle I am using for Enchanting Materials and Gylphs works on Blues/Epics/Gems aswell. I don’t ever undercut people, since their auctions will sell and then I am selling mine for much more profit. But putting up 5000 Blue Items of the same kind doesn’t really make sense to me. Lets look at an example here: Some Seller has 18 Auctions of Runed Scarlet Rubies up and is by far more expensive than the others above him. Each ruby has a 2.7g auction fee, summing up 48.6 gold. so each 48 hours he loses 1 of his rubies just to finance his auctions. Imo it makes no sense, to put that much rubies on AH, they are expensive and most people most likely use epic gems now anyhow. By putting up up only 4-5 of these he will sell as much and cut his costs effectively thus raising his profits. The strategy I am working …
