Depending on your server, there's a ton of gold to be made from bags that no one is making anymore. For example, the emerald bag on my realm goes for 500 to 700 gold on the auction house. So I drop a few Cenarion Circle herb bags on the AH for 45 to 75 gold, and they always sell. There's no competition either, because (snicker) it's not worth getting the mats. Same with the low-level soul bags. You can buy the recipe from Tanaris (I think), and they sell incredibly well.You'd be surprised how much people will pay for a Rabbit when the only alternative is a Ferrari. And far from being upset about it, they're grateful for getting a good deal.

This is true in some situations.I, personally love your comment.Realms vary and every situation is different, but I find that your comment is valid in most of the realms I have visited.( I do a little market research on worlds similar to my own on occasion, just to make sure the prices are about right.)I also find that people are willing to over pay for "not worth getting" type mats or products.Wool cloth on my home server sells for 5-10x rune cloth just because no one wants to bother with that content.You can run SFK and sell stacks of wool cloth for 15-30 gold a stack on a good day.Yet rune cloth is worth only like 3-4g a stack because of all the 80's running alts through scholo and strat.

Szass, you're so right. Same situation on wool and runecloth on my server... and wool STILL sells even if I "compact" it into bolts to save bag space on farming run.I also noticed, there is fairly good market for TBC bags - the 28-slot herb bag from Sporeggar, particularly. It is a rep recipe, but when I leveled my alts, I ran underbog many times via RDF, and nobody bothered to pick the Hibiscus nodes except me... And some were on AH fairly cheap, not to mention the fact the place can be soloed by any fairly-geared and knowledgeable 80 if all else fails. These flowers give 250 rep per 5 on the turn-in quest, so sporeggar rep can be had fairly easily these days.Spellfire Bag, the equivalent enchanting bag, is bigger P.I.T.A. mats-wise, but may be still worth a go depending on local economy. 24-slotter is a rep recipe with hard-to-find mats, but there MAY be money in the 20-slotter, with a caution tag - these have a vendor equivalent that can be bought for 14g, so you need to be able to buy mats cheaper to sell below the vendor price with a profit.Cenarion Herb Bag is good only if you have a friendly herbalist and therefore can get morrowgrain cheap; non-herbalists won't produce it cheaply due to lower "drop" rate. A 24-slotter, Satchel of Cenarius, is a Vanilla rep one, and mats are not cheap either.

As far as I can tell, almost no one knows about the specialty bags that are sold by a certain vendor. I made a bunch of money by buying and reselling those bags for a while. I should go back and do it again. It's an easy 5-6 gold for minimum effort.I have five stacks of runecloth, and am just waiting to get some time to go get some more purple lotus and un'goro soil, for the Cenarion Herb Bags. I sell those for about 90g each. It's odd, if I list two or more, I can't sell them, but if I sell them 1 at a time, they almost never come back to me....Soul Pouches sell pretty well.Netherweave Bags I sell for anywhere from 8-10g each. I don't buy the mats if they're more than 4.5g/stack however, so sometimes there's a stretch where I don't make them. OTOH, I have an alt levelling through Outland right now, so I expect I will soon be rolling in cloth again...I find that Cloaks of Frozen Spirits and Cloak of the Moon tend to sell pretty well, depending on Northsea Pearl availability; I frequently pick them up for under vendor price on the AH, for some reason....

@vanye111Don't forget that you can buy an unlimited amount of northsea pearls from Ahlurglgr, the murloc vendor in Borean Tundra. It's thirty winterfin clams per pearl, and the clams are crazy easy to farm.
