From my last post you will know that I had some success with my Warlords of Draenor gold making by selling the Jawless Skulker. In this post I extend the idea to selling the flesh of common Draenor fish and explain the tools I use to automate the process in WoD.
The Seller of Fish Flesh
I had the idea that selling the flesh of the new fish in Draenor might make me a good profit.
Researching the Auction House
Having a gold making idea is great, but it helps to do a little research using some of the online databases such as wowhead and theunderminejournal. I create a list of item ids of all the common Draenor fish flesh, together with some basic pricing.
Automating with TSM
To make gold efficiently, I’m not going to try and catch the fish in Draenor, but rather ‘farm’ the Auction house for the flesh! I’m going to setup a ‘shopping’ operation in TSM to scan the auction house for under-priced flesh and resell it for a greater margin of profit. How much profit you make will depend on your server economy. I also create a TSM Auction operation to post my bargain flesh. Here is the outline of the process:
- I import my list of item ids and create a Flesh Group in TSM
- I create an Auction operation for the group
- I create a Shopping operation for the group
Farming the Auction House
Automating the whole process with TSM allows me to quickly farm the auction house for cheap flesh (35-45% below market) and post at or above market price (105-200%) for a good profit.
You will need to adjust your TMS operations to allow for the variations on your server. It’s important to note that you should try to sell your flesh in suitable stacks and on the right day of the week. I’ve found stacks sizes of 3 and 10 to work best on my server and selling on a Thursday results in more profit.
