Eh, I'm with basil. Have a bunch of crafters at max level, find an imbalance on the AH in terms of what you can craft, and profit.Difference between basil and myself (and I think many people who are more casual AH'ers) is that there is a lot of inherent risk in how he plays the AH. Buying out base materials can be a winning strat, but it is very risky inherently. On the other hand, if you are a tailor, if frostweave is super cheap, buy out all of the frostweave you can for 15s or less, and just go /afk while making a few hundred bolts of frostweave, and then vendor them.Also, there are plenty of people who can't be bothered to have a bank alt, and this also hinders profit, because part of doing the AH this way is stockpiling things like arctic fur, flasks, gems, frozen orbs, other base mats, and then selling them when the AH prices or their crafted items inevitably net a profit. A large part of playing the AH is inventory management, which is frankly not a fun game for me. There was a mage on my realm who was telling me the other day he was netting 1k gold per day from doing nothing but buying and reselling stuff on the AH. I say good for him, but dipping my toes into that type of reselling has gotten me burned, so I'm going to stay with more conservative ways of making G - alchemy transmutes, special tailoring cloths, and selling enchanting mats when their prices go up (have been able to sell abyss crystals for over 40g at some points in the past month).
