Day of the Dead Achievement Update

I started examining this event here, so here is what I have learnt since ...

OK so Catrina and Champman are both in faction city graveyards. Nice and easy.

At 01:00 I'll have a rather large bet that there were shit loads of people in the graveyard and that there was a fucking wooly mammoth sat on top of the NPCs.

No problems. /tar catrina (cos there is always some twat who created a level 1 called catrinna) and then /dance. BANG you have the achievement.

Then /tar Chapman and then hit the button you have bound in your keybindings (Under Targetting Functions) to interact with target. Buy the flowers off him and then bread recipe and then make the bread.

Equip the Orange Marigolds and then use them. A Cheerful Spirit will appear and will want some bread of the dead. That you have just made from the simple flour and ice cold milk you brought with you.

Accept quest and then hand it in. You now have the Macabre Marionette pet that only lasts for the 2 days of the event.

Now spam /1 /s and /y that you are selling bread for 5g a piece and rake in the gold :)

Weekly Update

OK, so a goblin update is going to get boring every couple of days, so It's gonna become weekly.

Sunday evening it'll be. For the moment it will simply have a stock valuation, a gold amount and a total.

The bi-daily totals so far have been

28/10 33322g
30/10 34848g

Now todays gold total is actually made up of:

4742 gold
449 Ink of the Sea converted up to 5g glyph sale average (minus parchment cost)
522 Snowfall Ink at 12g
2140 Glyphs on my Melee glyph seller
2100 glyphs on my caster glyph seller

So that will equate to:
4,842 real gold (50g stash on each seller)
30,006 gold in stock

HolyWarrior will be going JC over the weekend so I may have to be adding him into the mix, then either of my leatherworkers will be looking at tricks, and fo course I'll be looking to churn out shit loads of netherweave bags.

Ho Hum, goldcap is still a long way off :(

Money From Snowfalls ... At Friggin Last

As reported maybe I should have held out on the Chaos deck...

And this was even more annoying. Waiting 48 hours for this bid money to come in. What was even funnier was that if they had waited 2 hours 4 buyouts would have come in and undercut my bid price!! HAHHAHAHHAHHAHHA.

Kvaldir in Goldshire ... Errrrrrr ... WTF

So there I am minding my own business in Goldshire, just finished perfecting the getting on the Inn roof and pop inside to try my luck with the hourly trick or treat to get the Hallowed Helm which is the last thing I need for my level 60-something druid to get the Hallowed Achievement. {and ... breath}.

Did I tell you the fucker now has 2 Sinister Squashlings? Yeah. FFS!

Anyway, out of nowhere this Angry Kvaldir comes charging out of the Goldshire Inn kitchen...

... I mean WTFF?? FUCK!!

Darkmoon Cards Part 2 - ARgggg

What with the Darkmoon Faire coming Alliance side soon I can see the price of Eternal Life going up. 2 days ago they were going for as low as 10g now it's 20g-30g

So I bought up 48 Eternal Lifes at an average to 25g each - that's 1200g.

Enough to make 16 darkmoon cards. Thats 96 Snowfall Inks. 1152g

9g worth of Parchement and 96g worth of IotS

For a total of 2,457g (I think)

16 cards should give me 4 nobles cards on average. What do I get?
3 undeath cards (value ~ 500g)
4 Prisms cards (value ~ 200g)
8 Chaos cards (value ~ 300g)
1 YES - FUCKING ONE Nobles Cards (value 350g)

Total spent: 2450g
Total possible returned: 1350
Total Loss (Best Case): 1100g

Fucking get in there RNG - You Bastard!

So I did a bit of swapping and buying and made the Chaos deck which MAY sell for 450g.

Fingers crossed that'll bring the loss down to 1K gold. FUCK!

Yes I am taking into account a snowfall ink price of 12g. I no longer consider them a free bi-product of milling. I factor in a price of snowfall so I can spend more on inks and keep my IotS price down at 2g a pop.

EDIT: Good Fucking God. That Fucking Chaos deck already sold. I thought I was risking it put it up at 125% auctioneer value at 499g. But NO. It sold within hours, returning my 9gold deposit but taking a 25gold cut giving me 484 gold. Maybe I should have held out for more??

Overun With Snowfall Ink. Lets Make Nobles Cards

As I was up to 700 Snowfall Inks (yes - more than a 32 slot bag full of Inks!!!) I decided it was time to up my game getting rid of them.

I have 8 batches of 6, 1 batch of 5 and 5 singles. Woopy-Fucking-Doo. So I thought I'd diversify from just selling the inks and the runescrolls. I made up a Faces of Doom, an Iron-Bound Tome and then bought up loads of Eternal Life and made 7 Darkmoon Cards.

So Profit/Loss?

Faces of Doom:
5 Snowfall - 60g
10 Res Parchment - 5g (50s is easier on the maths than 40s!)
1 Frozen Orb - 25g
2 Ink of the Sea - 4g
Total Cost: 94g
Sold for 190g (after AH cut)
Profit: 96g

Iron-Bound Tome:
Same costs as above
4g AH cost
Profit: -98g

Darkmoon Card:
1 Res Parch - 50s
6 Snowfall Ink - 72g
3 Eternal Life - 75g
3 Ink of the Sea - 6g
Cost Each: 153g 50s
Total Cost: 1050g
Result: 5 Chaos Cards (AH value 20-40g)
Six of Nobles - 396g
Seven of Nobles - 881 bid currently
Five of Chaos - 33g
3 unsold cards deposit - 2g
Total Sales: 1306g
Profit: 250g

So I got rid of 2 stacks of Snowfalls and made about 300g so far, with some stuff still in stock to sell. Off to buy more Frozen Orbs and Eternal Lifes.

Day of the Dead Freebie Achievement and Other Mindless Crap.

OK, So Hallows End finishes at 1 minute to midnight on Halloween. Hmmm not long to get your sinister squashling and hallowed helm.

I have had my alts running round Azeroth getting nice XP from the candy buckets but that will soon come to an end.

When Hallow's End finishes at 23:59 you have a whole hour to kill at the Darkmoon Faire picking up your trinkets. You did buy up all my snowfall ink and/or Nobles Cards didn't you? No? Well go and fucking buy them then...quick!!

Speaking of which I currently have a 881g bid on the 7 of Nobles. This is my first one ever. Is this usual?

Anyway, so after you have spent that hour with the DF You have a 2 day event called Day of the Dead. Yeah TWO day event called DAY of the ...

WTF Blizz??? It starts at 01:00 on 1st November and ends at 23:59 on the second. Thats TWO fucking days Blizz.

Is it called TWO DAYS of the Dead? No? Why not Blizz?

Pfff, so anyway. What is it about? Well to start with there is meta-free achievement caled Dead Man's Party which has you dancing with Catrina.

No-one as yet seems to know where she is, but there is good betting that she likes hanging out around stiffs near Uther's Tomb.

Also, there is talk of 12 quests all called Grateful Dead which has you getting a new cooking recipe (as of patch 3.2.0) and cooking up some [Bread of the Dead], the recipe for which you get from an unknown NPC called Chapman, and feeding it to ghosts in city graveyards.


I'm guessing 5 faction cities each + Shittrath + Dullaran.

Also, you may also need a Flower of the Dead just to see these guys that you give the dead bread to to complete the quest...


1. /dance with unknown NPC called Catrina in an unknown location
2. Get recipe from unknown NPC Chapman for some bread (just flour and milk apparently. Nice Bread!!)
3. Get a Flower of the Dead from FUCK KNOWS WHERE
4. Use flower in each graveyard so you can see a cheerful NPC and then give the bread to said Cheerful spirit for an unknown reward.

I don't know about you guys but it sounds like a great way to spend my weekend :P

Update Post Available Here.

What a Long Strange Trip...

On the 2nd day of Hallows End HolyWarrior picked up A Sinister Squashling. It was the last summon of the day. He got a little excited in party chat.

When I got back to Dullaran look at what was waiting in my mail box...

And I got straight on and went for a quick *310% flight

Money Money Money

OK, went away to a wedding this weekend. 15:00 Friday - 16:00 Sunday with no WoW. So I slammed all my glyphs on for 48 hours at the last moment and drive off to Robin Hood Country.

Got pissed up at the wedding and got back to a couple of mail boxes full of 2g glyph sales and an auction house full of cheap herbs. I blew 1500g on herbs.

So I finished crafting up to 20 of each glyph after spending hours milling etc. and got back on track.

Total Prize Fund:
20/10 24,020
22/10 27,126
25/10 30,490

But now I am up to a full stack of each glyph so all crafting from now on will be replacement, so I can keep my gold from sales :P

Still not found a reliable way to get rid of Snowfalls but I've nearly liquidated my Arctic Fur supply.

Goblin Update .. Err 5?? The Value of Herbs.

Anyway, I know we're about 21 hours early on this bi-daily update but was just gonna mention that I changed my tactic.

1. I have reduced my 1ink threshold down to 2g99s. Any profit is profit man!!
2. I have reduced my 2ink threshold down to 4g99s. ditto
3. I have stopped keeping track of the price I sold every single fucking glyph. Enough is Enough. Seriously though. I ran it for 4 weeks. I have a fair idea of the most popular glyphs now.
4. [observation] Post-Server maintenance is a good time to get on early.
5. I've stopped keeping a close track on what herbs give best value... see below
6. Sideline. I'm buying up cheap Borean Leather and BL scarps in advance of 3.3 I'm also SLOWLY selling off my Arctic Fur. Fur will be buyable for 10 Heavy Borean Leather. As everyone else has predicted BL will explode. Arctic Fur will dive. That's what I am banking on.
7. Ramping up my Netherweave bag business. Those fuckers sell fast don't they?


After 1778 mills Tiger Lilly gave me 4471 pigments and 448 Icys. That 2.51 pigments/mill and 1.00 Icy/stack.

After 963 mills Deadnettle gave me 2446 pigments and 245 Icys. That's 2.54 pigments and 1.00 Icy/stack.

That's good enough data for now for them mofos

As for the others? I've done 155 Adders, 217 Icethorn and 12 Lich mills to give 3.01, 2.90 and 3.33 pigments/mill and 0.53, 0.53 and 0.75 Icys/mill.

These ones need much more volume to give me a definitive answer but the numbers are looking good for a 3pigs/mill and a 2icy/stack.

Also, VERY IMPORTANT. I need to level my bankers up to level 10. God forbid I got hacked but if I did: Bliztards apparently won't restore characters under level 10.

Reduce Your Latency by 80%

Or some such nonsense.

Another blog I have found recently is AH-Whoring (via Caffeine's blog) and Sarainy the AH Whore found a great way to reduce latency.

Anyway, this is an extension to what Doom (RIP) found for me some time ago. Back then I managed to reduce my latency from 270 down to 40.

Now I'm on a new machine and had forgotten all about that and have been sitting at about 240ms. So I installed the above fix and now I'm sat around 60ms. Nice!!!

Cheers Sar. Maybe I'll try the Auctioneer Getall scan and see if I still get disconned!!

So, in honour of Doomilias. Sarainy YOU are now the genius!!!

AH and Mail Box at the Same Time

OMFG. I just found this on Hit The Cap!

OMG I love it. Did you get that? What is it about? Tella has found a way to stand by the mail box in Stormwind and interact with the auctioneer the other side of the wall. *creams pants*

Cool. Cheers Tella.

Goblin Update

I dunno what happened yesterday, there wasn't an in game event or anything, but my glyph sales briefly went through the roof with probably 3x as many sales in a couple of hours of the evening than I'd usually get in the whole of a day.

Weirder still, this was only on the Main Glyph seller, not the seller with all the caster glyphs. Odd.

The only thing I can think of is that a major undercutter couldn't get online. And that that undercutter has decided the caster glyphs are not worth the hassle, which they're probably not!!

Who knows, I can't complain I got several 59g sales in a row too - Woot!!

So, How are the stocks looking?

Well, Assuming an unsold glyph had a value of 5g, and IotS have a potential Glyph value of 4g50s and Snowfall has a sale value of 13g then we have the following wealth figures for the last week:

14/10 17,830g
16/10 20,690g
18/10 21,757g
20/10 24,042g

Averages about 1K / day. Rubbish. But at leat I have 1.7K of cash and aim to be moving more assets into cash.

Hallows End Achievement Guide 2009

Starts this Sunday morning at 01:00 server time - that's Midnight BST - yes we are still in summer time in England.

Achievements guide update coming soon....

OK, Achievement Guide Update ... that's gonna be hard, I never wrote one to start with, either that or it's sat in draft format 8 pages back where I never venture anymore!!

So, without Further ado I had better get this guide started.

To get the Title "The Hallowed" you have to get the meta achievement "Hallowed Be Thy Name" - apt eh? yeah I like it.

Anywhose.... for that you need the following achievements:

Bloody Easy:
Trick or Treat - Get some candy from a bucket in an Inn.
That Sparkling Smile - Use a tooth pick

Not Too Bad:
The Saviour of Hallows End - Complete a quest to save a village from the HH
Rotten Hallow - Crash the Wickerman Festival and clean up stink bombs

Little More Difficult/Annoying:
G.N.E.R.D. Rage - 50 HKs while you have the G.N.E.R.D. buff

Time Consuming/More Annoying:
Check Your Head - Use a weighted Jack-o-lantern on a player of each race
The Masquerade - Get transformed into a bat, ghost, Leper Gnome, Ninja, Pirate, Skeleton and Wisp.
Tricks and Treats of Azeroth - Do the tricks and Treats of Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms and Outland. Go to lots of candy buckets all over the world.

Bloody Hard If You're Not Level 80:
Bring me the Head of... Oh Wait - Kill the Headless Horseman
Out With It - Eat so many tricky treats you get an upset tummy
Sinister Calling - Obtain a Sinister Squashling and a Hallowed Helm

Not included in Meta:
The Mask Task - WTF - what's so hard about getting 1 fucking mask. Fucking QQers have won again, lazy M&S wankers.
A Mask for all Occasions - Stupid if it was included.

The Walkthrough:
OK, so we'll start with the meat and potatoes of the meta achievment Trick or Treat. You'll be doing a lot of this, so it's nice that the first time gives you an achievement. Go to the Inn near the bank in Ironforge. Speak to the innkeeper and get trick/treated. He'll give you a treat bag. This has a chance to contain one of the many things you'll need like Tooth Picks, Hallowed Wands, Masks, Hallowed Helm and Sinister Squashling. So make sure you do this every hour (you can only do it once an hour). Now click the Candy Bucket with a big yellow ! This will give you a handful of candy and your first achievement.

The Saviour of Hallows End.
Now head down to Kharanos and pick up the quests for firefighting etc, do them all and make sure to pop into the inn for the Candy Bucket. The next quest should be "Let The Fires Come" this will involve the headless horseman setting fire to the village. Hopefully there will be lots of people around to help but the fires out. Hang around for the headless horseman to attack and make sure to help put out the fires. When he is dead at the end of the event loot the pumpkin he leaves behind so you can go hand in the quest for your next achievement. If he wins you could always hang around waiting for another try or when you get to Goldshire hope he is there then. Don't hang around wasting time.

Rotten Hallow
OK, moving on. Lets pop to Loch Modan for the Candy Bucket there, then head up to Menethil Harbour and do the Candy Bucket there before heading over to Southshore. Here you'll pick up the 2 quests from Sergeant Hartman near the inn. Pop into the inn and do the Candy Bucket. If the stink bombs are about (orange clouds near the quest giver) then use the cleanser, otherwise head west to Tirisfal Glades through Silverpine forest. Just after you enter Silverpine you will come across some people hanging around, get close enough and you should get a quest complete for the Wickerman festival. Head back to Southshore and han around for the stink bombs if you haven't got it done already.

Keep on Moving.
Now you want to go get the Candy Bucket from Aerie Peak in the Hinterlands and Lights Hope Chapel in Easter Plaguelands. Hope the horde haven't killed the Southshore flight master. Annoying fuckers have a habit of doing that on my server!!

Your HS should be available now so HS and portal to Stormwind (your hearthstone is set to Dalaran right?). Stop off and do the Candy Bucket in the Trade District on the way to Goldshire. When in Goldshire do the Candy Bucket, maybe refresh your trick or treat with the Innkeeper if it's been an hour and then finish the Headless Horseman fires thing if you didn't do that in Kharanos.

Keep on truckin':
You have some more travelling to do. Redridge, Darkshire, Sentinel Hill and Booty Bay await your sweet tooth. Once you have done here you will have picked up Tricks and Treats of Eastern Kingdoms. You are 1/3 of the way to Tricks and Treats of Azeroth.

Over to Kalimdor:
You need to go do these Candy Buckets. Ratchet > Dustwallow Marsh (Theramore) > Dustwallow Marsh (Mudsprocket) > Tanaris > Silithus > Feathermoon Stronghold > Nijel's Point > Stonetalon Mountains > Ashenvale > Auberdine > Winterspring > Exodar (Seat of the Naaru) > Azure Watch > Blood Watch > Darnassus (Craftsmen's Terrace) > Dolanaar.

Take a Break ... Take a Shit.
...Or do some PvP. You have should have plenty of G.N.E.R.D.S. by now and you will surely be sick and fucking tired of travelling and clicking Candy Buckets. Your Dentist certainly is. Or is that Orthodontist or something else overly complicated like the Americans like to do. DENTIST - much easier to say. LOL. It doesn't come over well on a blog. But I'm having a laugh. My american friends know my sense of humour. You don't. You'll have to get over it if your a septic. Thats A septic. Not aseptic.

Speaking of which, you should also have managed to loot some Tooth Picks by now. Use one. *cough* That Sparkling Smile.

Ramble Ramble Ramble, now where the fuck was I? Oh yeah. You should have plenty of GNERDS now so go into Alterac Valley. Find a nice hiding place in the home base. Neck some GNERDS and then /afk* those 50HKs you need. Et Voila G.N.E.R.D. Rage, Oh and while your in there use some of those weighted jack-lantern's you've got (What? You haven't got any yet? Tough Shite, keep trying!) on peeps for Check Your Head.

Still Bored?
OK, HS back to Dullaran and finish off putting Jack-o-Lanterns on people so that you can get Check Your Head. I am sure that last year it was certain classes of a race. ie put a pumpkin on a Tauren Warrior, Orc Shaman, Dranei Priest etc... Or was it Female Taruen, Male Orc etc. I am pretty damm sure Blizz dummed down something else. Twats.

Anyway, so while your sat in Dullaran bored out of your tiny little mind you have something else to do. You will be spamming /trade asking to buy/sell/trade your wands so that you can get The Masquerade.

Anyway ... On To Outland:
...and these Candy Buckets. Shattrath(TF) > Allerian Stronghold(TF) > Wildhamer Stronghold(SMV) > Aldor/Scryer Inn(SMV) > Telaar(Nag) > Telredor(ZM) > Cenarion Refuge(ZM) > Orebor Harborage(ZM) > Sylvanaar(BEM) > Toshey's Station(BEM) > Evergrove(BEM) > Area 52(NS) > Stormspire(NS) > Temple of Telhamat(HP) > Honour Hold(HP)

Once you've done that lot you have Tricks and Treats of Azeroth.

The Hard Part:
Now all you have to do is kill the Headless Horseman in the Graveyard of Scarlet Monastery for Bring me the Head of... Oh Wait. Then eat a load of Tricky Treats that you loot from his body and throw ... err ... get Out With It. And pray and pray and pray that the Hallowed Helm and the Sinister Squashling drop for Sinister Calling.

Guys and Gals - This is probably what's gonna fuck you over. Neither HW nor EB could get either last year. (level 1 alts managed it - fucks sake) HW managed to get the helm, that is all. That is the main reason why EB still hasn't got the Violet Proto Drake and HW got it yesterday. Rather than when Brewfest hit.

So anyway, you have to hope they drop. The other alternative is you make damm sure you hit those fucking Innkeepers every hour in the hope of a drop from the Treat Bag. And make sure you stop an Inn burning down every day in case you find one in a Crudely Wrapped Gift.

3 ways to get either or both of them. All a pain in the fucking arse. Good Luck :P

*don't actually type /afk. If you were thinking about typing /afk at that point then try Alt-F4 instead, it's much less painful.

Goblin Update

Well, Glyph fans, here is the latest update; and here is my Scribe. Cute ain't he?

The secondary glyph seller has now got Mage, Warlock, Shaman and Priest Glyphs while the main seller has the others.

The main seller was up to 3000 gold at the weekend but has churned that all back into northrend herbs that are selling for less than 10g/stack. High-end northrend herbs are still selling at around 17-35g a stack and my calculations on a per pigment basis (ignoring snowfalls) are that they need to be under 14g / stack to be worthwhile.

Of course, there is always the argument that I'll get that extra icy pigment out of them so it's worthwhile. However, I have enough on my plate trying to get this glyph business straight in my head!!!

So anyway, the state of play tonight assuming an IotS is 2g and a glyph minimum* sale is 5g on my server.

Crafter has:
350 Snowfall Ink** - Currently selling for 13g = 4550g
414 Ink of the Sea - 828g (minimum*** glyph value = 1853g)
237 Actual gold
Total: 6640g

Seller One has:
ploughed back 6000g in herbs back to crafter
has 0g currently
holds 1480 glyphs of 111 different types = 7400g (minimum)
Total: 7400g

Seller Two has:
ploughed back 0g
has 380g currently
holds 680 glyphs of 70 different types = 3400g (minimum)
Total: 3780g

So if I were to be able to liquidate all my assets tommorrow I would have 17,820 gold for an initial seed of about 4000g in just over 4 weeks. 3.5K a week anyone?

Looking at it more simplistically; I have actually had sales of 5286g and ploughed that back in for potential profit and have only a bunch of glyphs to show for it ... Hmmm?

What have I actually got? 617g - LOL!!! Admitedly I did spend about 3000g on herbs and cheap pigments to up my stock levels...

...but 617 Gold!!

Next week? Who knows, but I want to start syphoning off some of this gold now so I actually have something to show for it.

HW has 14K after buying loads of epic gems
EB has 3K after the tailoring debacle.
My AH Banker has 9K from AH speculation once in a blue moon
I have (potentially) 17K tied up in glyphs
500g on each serious alt, so another 3K

My total worth: 46K, give or take. I want to make that 100K by Christmas.

*Obviously some glyphs sell for shit and would take years to sell at 5g, but a lot of others sell for the fall back price of 59g so happy days!!!

** Could add 2g50s and get 5 x runescroll of fortitude/ink selling for 20gold = 6125g

*** includes 50s for resilient parchment

Spending Some Money on Gems

After yesterday's outing to ToT I had to gem up HW's new troosers.

So off to the AH because HotPants is still level 64 or something and HW still hasn't unlearnt mining and learnt JC yet.

I'd forgotten epic gems had arrived so I bought up about 10 at ridiculous money each. HW's SP went past the 2100 mark and closer to 2200.

We not talking Epic Ulduar Healer here but it makes me happy :)

Trial of the Tosser (5 man)

Finally I took EvilBastard and HolyWarrior into the new 5 man dungeons in the Argent Tournament.

OK, well I say dungeon, it's not really a dungeon is it? But WOTEVA!

So EB went into normal mode Trial of the Champion ... Trial of the Crusader ... Trial of Champions ... whatever ... Trial of Tossers and put out a not too respectable 1K DPS on average.

To cut a long story short I stuck EB in the LFG tool just for a laugh while doing the dailies and he got invited to a group.

I have never been in but vaguely recall a few fellow bloggers mentioning it and when we got in there 2 of group said "Duh, wot do we do?" (but less betterer gramma and spellin kk man) one of the others replied "I thought you guys said you'd been here?" and I just replied "knock em off and keep em off".

One of the non-M&S said "yeah man" one of the 'tards said "Eh wot man?" and the non-M&S replied "You'll see".

At least I appeared to have been in here before even though I had no real clue apart from vague memories from blogs!!

So, the whole group managed to mount up, but one of the group had to be repeatedly reminded to get his shields up, I don't think he ever did!!

I had my usual addon problem of the only thing I could do was shields, my n52 would activate the buttons with the macro's to the charger spells, the buttons would flash as if clicked but no do anything. Mouse clicking direct would have no effecy either*

So we kicked some ass and then the group wiped on the Dark Knight. But we got him down second try.

99% of the loot was mail - so no loot whatsoever for EB - Grrr

Later, HolyWarrior went in. This time it was heroic mode and he was healing and at some point he got some nice healing leggings.

Thanks again to a vague memory of reading it on a blog when one of the mobs shouted (or maybe it was DBM or something) about a light I remembered to turn my character away from the boss. I must have seemed like a pro!!! Oh these poor PUGS don't know the half of it!!!

We also had a wipe on the Black Knight. But again then second time in he went down like ... your mom. Oh sorry the M&S are wearing off on me!!! He went down easy. So HW got 3 emblems and some healing trousers. Nice.

*This happens with Battle before the citadel frequently too. Or it doesn't if I haven't done the jousting daily, but then it does it with the jousting daily. Fucking addons.

Goblin Update.

OK, I now have som many glyphs I have had to take over one of my sons characters as a second glyph banker/auctioneer. She is doing mage and warlock glyphs and has made 1 sale this weekend!!!

Oh well.

I have been keeping track off how much each glyph has sold for and the results for the first month (I started selling glyphs on 11 September) are in.

I had 2 Pack of Endless Pockets full of IotS at one point, now I have less than 200!!

Anyways, I am reckoning that each ink costs 2 gold based on herb prices on my server and that is what I am basing my production costs on. Snowfalls I see as the free bonus (I know other people see it the other wat round, but hey ho!!)

Total glyphs known: 175*
Initial Investment: 2.5K
Production Cost: 1.9K
Total Sales: 6K

I have 1.4K sat on by banker, and 700 on the scribe. My mage/lock seller has about 300 glyphs in stock and my main seller has about 1200 glyphs in stock. So 1500 Glyphs at a minimum sale value of 5g is 7.5K

I am slowly ramping up the stock levels from 10 of each glyph to 20 of each glyph and will soon have to move priest and shammy glyphs over to banker 2.

But now I have started using Quick Auctions 2 and Lil sparky and things are a lot quicker!!

*fucked off minor research for the first couple of weeks no realising how lucrative some can be - oops!!

Crusader EvilBastard and Another Greedy Goblin

Oh yes baby, EvilBastard finally reached exalted with the Argent Crusade and got the Crusader title last night. YAY!!!

Now I can stop half-heartedly doing all the dailies and concentrate on making gold the Greedy Goblin way. EvilBastard's tailoring goblin ways have as yet been unsuccesful - he needs to concentrate on netherweave rather than frostweave.

What I'm doing is ramping up the glyphs and it seems I'm in a race with a Caffiene Head!

So where am I at the moment. I have about 60 glyphs currently selling on the AH. 3 Pack of Endless Pockets of Ink of the Sea and the gold creeping up at the rate of about 500 gold per day.

Next stop - Jewelcrafting on HolyWarrior. No, I still haven't unleant mining :P

Hillsbrad Foothills - Horde or Alliance?

Well, apparently in Wow 4 - Clitacasm the horde will finally take Hillsbrad/Southshore.

Well my question is - Who the Fuck Really Cares?

I mean come on, it is a low level zone that only has tin it - that tells me it is low level (waiting to be corrceted), but it is still allow level zone. You have to go through Arathi to get to it.

At the appropriate level for Hillsbrad you get fucking eaten alive trying to get there through Arathi.

Fuck Hillsbrad, let the Horde have it. Just give us back the big fucking castle thing in Arathi.
