Pardon the dust while I am working on Wowconomics 2.0

While I am redoing the site you will start to see updates to the profession guides. I have received emails on when they will be updated and I finally have the time to redo them.

You are probably wondering “Why does it matter? There are plenty of guides out there.”

Well the answer is simple: The leveling guides on this site have gold in mind. Yes, you may be able to level with less mats with other guides, but with the ones on this site, you will create the items that sell quickly and help recoup most of your costs. (In some ares you might be able to make a profit!)

The first Guide to receive an update is the Alchemy Leveling Guide 1-525

 

Alchemy is one of the cheaper crafting professions to level. But with the addition of Inscription,  herb prices have increased and it has made it slightly more expensive to level.

The guide below shows the mats needed to craft 1 item. Depending how lucky you are, you may only need the amount of items x the number of levels. In most cases will need slightly more.

I will occasionally pick an item that costs more mats to make because it had a better Auction House value. I also vary up the items you craft so you dont end up with too many of one item to try and sell on the Auction House. In general I tend to pick mana and health pots because they tend to sell quicker and for more money than any other low level pots.

I wanted to post a reminder that the Darkmoon Faire starts today. This is a good money making event. If you haven’t read the post about how to make gold on this event, check it out here: Darkmoon Faire Gold Making

I still make quite a bit of money off the low level herbs. There is a lot less competition since there is no longer “big ticket money makers”

This month it is located in Mulgore.

On my server I can routinely make 100 of these every couple days and sell them for 5 g each. Since they are used by many raiding dps. I spend about 2.5 to make each one (with out any procs ). With procs I am spending about 2.25 ish each pot.† (more…)

I never really actively used alchemy to make money. I just found it more of an annoyance. It may be because its on an alt so I would have to buy herbs, send them etc. However I tried to get back† into using the profession lately.

I have had quite a bit of sucess. I have made posts on how I have been able to make money off crafting pots. But after today, I found out how easy it is to make gold on flasks as well. I use a flask master and craft Frost Wyrm, Endless Rage, and Stoneblood flasks. These sell for almost 20g each.

I list them in stacks of 2 right before common raid times ( I list about 40 a day around 7-7:30). I list these auctions at a 24 hour auction so I can relist them the next day around the same time.† More often than not, I will sell all of the auctions before they expire.

I avoid listing the MP5 Flasks because† on my server they don’t seem to sell as well as the other flasks. Also, I like to save my pygmy oil for the massive amounts of speed pots that I sell.

I make gold off these frequently.† I can usually pick up the Fiery ink off the AH for around 3g each. These inks are mainly used for Darkmoon Faire Card making, but while leveling, Inscriptionsts will get† more then they need to level. I also trade ink† for Celestial Ink (Ink of the Sea costs me about 1g to make each one) (more…)

On my server I can routinely make 100 of these every couple days and sell them for 5 g each. Since they are used by many raiding dps. I spend about 3 to make each one (with out any procs ). With procs I am spending about 2.80 ish each pot. (more…)

Today I wanted to cover ink trading. This is an easy simple way to make money with Inscription. It doesn’t take knowing the glyphs or even having the profession.

Ink of the sea (which can be purchased for around 2g each on my server) can be crafted or purchased to trade in for any other common ink. I routinely list about 10-20 of each ink (single stacks) and I sell many of them in a 2 day auction period. (more…)
