Breakfast Topic: What is WoW's most lucrative profession? {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2012 10:20AM Jewelcrafting has the advantage of being boosted by your other professions. If you have Alchemy, you can make your own Shadowspirits and some extra Inferno Rubies with the junk gems that many JCs dump on the AH for peanuts. If you have Enchanting, you're making your own dust and essences for scrolls. It's an efficient combination for squeezing the most out of each stack of ore.

Inscription, on the other hand, is horrible. Stay away. The amount of gold you can make from selling a few dozen trinkets every Faire is absolutely...horrible. Yeah, horrible, that's the ticket. Worst profession ever.

Is choosing a server becoming obsolete? {WoW}

Jan 13th 2012 8:09PM Servers will matter as long as their economies are separated from each other.

On my new server, I can buy anything I want. Raid and Valor BoEs, gems, glyphs, mats - it's all there, and reasonably priced. On my old server, if you wanted anything, be prepared to farm it or craft it yourself. Gearing up alts takes a lot longer when you have to farm Justice/Valor/Honor for *every* slot instead of being able to fill half of them from one visit to the AH.

On the other hand, it was good server if your plan was to *save* gold...

The Fastest Way to 10,000 Gold: The Fox Van Allen counterpoint {WoW}

Jan 10th 2012 7:46PM Making a million gold over the course of a few months in the hot market we have now is more of matter of not spending it as you make it rather than worrying about how to make it. You could probably do it easily enough just by running old instances with an Enchanter/Tailor in between queues and selling bags and dust. Slow and steady, no expenses and no endless milling or prospecting. (Since you'll be running old instances anyway building your tmog set, why not make the most of it?)

Jan 10th 2012 7:37PM He's not milling while AFK, he's turning pigments into ink which is nothing more than pressing "Make All".

The Fastest Way to 10,000 Gold: The Fox Van Allen counterpoint {WoW}

Jan 10th 2012 12:47PM I read that as "The Fastest Way to 10,000 Gold a Day..." Got me all excited for a few seconds.

Gold Capped: The fastest way to make 10,000 gold {WoW}

Jan 7th 2012 1:52PM Is 500K in a week supposed to be a lot, or is it just because she's a chick? (Or pretending to be a chick, if you know who the real owner of the Hayden guide is.)

We could always put Basil in a dress if that would help?

Gold Capped: The fastest way to make 10,000 gold {WoW}

Jan 6th 2012 4:13PM You can also queue for a heroic while soloing another instance. Pillaging BC or LK heroics in between Twilight runs can be quite lucrative, and even older items such Heavy Junkboxes from LBRS can be worth 20-50g each to the right buyer. The key is to be doing *something* instead of sitting in town swapping Thunderfury jokes while waiting for queues to pop. (I'll even take a few dozen stacks of ores and herbs into raids with me to work on during quiet times before pulls. It adds up.)

Survey reveals player wealth disparity {WoW}

Nov 11th 2011 11:15PM The more gold you have, the less likely you are to admit to it. I probably have more gold than my entire guild put together, yet I can whine about repair bills and the high costs of flasks with the best of them. The players with 30K or 60K will often readily admit to what they have, but above that many will attempt to obscure their numbers rather than boast about them.

Gold Capped: How to deal with AH stalkers {WoW}

Nov 3rd 2011 6:37PM I don't think "intelligently" really fits into the journey from 1 million to 10 million. I'm sure our therapists have all sorts of technical terms for it - "demented", "possessed", perhaps, "deranged" - but I doubt "intelligent" is among them.
