Learn the market on your server, and find a niche. I know I can sell glyphs of swiftmend for 45g on my server. I buy out my competition or undercut them, depending on volume/price. I've sold hundreds of the things. On the other hand, I've tried this with other glyphs and have just been undercut repeatedly. So, know your market - it's a lot more fun making 20-40g on lowish volume than constantly listing/relisting to make 2g per on higher volume. (I also used to make thousands on vellums, but now someone else has gotten into the market so I've started looking for new niches)

I heartily agree. I've been selling spellweave and spellthread at ridiculous profits for many months now. Not anywhere near gold capped, but i'm finally coming up on 6 figures across all toons.

I just want to add- constantly be searching for little things, too. Get to know the economy- learn the value of things. For example, on my server, every time I log on I search the AH for the Robes of Arcana recipe. if I see one for 20 gold (cheap, I never buy one for more than 50), i buy it and relist it at 200g and sometimes I have to list it a couple times but it will sell. This is not a way to make oodles of gold fast, obviously, but little things like that add up.As for consistent things, Ebonweave is a big one on my server; if I see it drop to 20g or so I will buy it all and relist at a higher price, no less than 40g and I've sold it for as much as 80. If the price goes really high I check the price on materials and if they're good enough I have my tailor make a bunch. Surprisingly enough I'm also nearly the sole supplier of relentless earthsiege diamonds on my server- you'd think more people would make them, but evidently not. Anyway, if you have time every day, just spend some time to browse around and in a couple weeks you should have a pretty good idea of what your server economy is like.
