Also remember that it isn't only Northrend where the profits are made. As people change professions or level lower level toons, they will want to power level and buying is faster than grinding.This is where I find that lower level toons who are gatherers will help contribute to the funds simply by picking up the leather and ore where they are leveling because there is a fairly good demand for leather and ore. In some ways I think they are more lucrative than the Northrend ores and leathers... because most of the toons are in the 68-80 bracket and those who aren't are racing to get there.Never underestimate the value of the meats you can pick up. When I was grinding wintersaber rep, I found the bear flank went for an unusually high amount because of the cooking power leveling. This may have changed since the Thanksgiving holiday (whatever they called it) made powerleveling cooking so easy.Also remember the possibility of recouping *some* of your expenses. While you may need what you smelt if you have a crafting profession, if you are a scavenger (mining+Skinning) and you need to power level mining through smelting, you can get some money back through selling what you smelted, especially if some raiders are your typical JC+BS. Usually ore sells better than bars on my server since people want to level their JC through getting prospectable ore or want to smelt their own ore to level mining, but professions like Engineering or BS requires a lot of barsI find that Auction Lite works well as an auction tool as it can scan similar auctions for an item you want to sell and give a competitive price which undercuts the other prices. It isn't perfect though. Some lower level greens can have a 3x vendor price if there are no similar items on the AH... but someone may be willing to pay more to outfit an alt. I like it because I simply alt right click an item and it scans the AH to see whether it is worth selling.Perhaps I am stating the obvious here but these are some basic tips which work for me.
