i have never been a huge gold maker, i only reached my 150k mark by simply saving my gold and nomally focusing on the "hot" proffesion. i had noticed that this last saturday my gold making was starting to raise so i set a goal for myself... Make 10k on Sunday. I achieved this victory and then some by spreading my markets out. I would normally go about my normal routine by posting some glyphs, some bags, and some ore but i knew there was more i could do. and here's what i did:
Glyphs: I did my normal routine of posting every glyph that was priced above 20g. This is just a steady market normally making about 2-3k a day.
Mysterious Fortune Cards: I jumped into this market late Saturday night when i realized that i only have to be 450 Inscription to learn it. I made some decent sales Saturday night but come Sunday i was prepared. I barked like a dog all day and raked in about about 4.5 - 5k. I was lucky enough to find a gambling addict to blow all his gold on me. He broke about even recieving the highest card i have personally seen (1k).
Netherweave Bags: I ran out of cloth and bolts during this venture andit seems that everyone else did as well because prices now are 25g each bag. But i did bring in about 500g on selling bags.
Enchanting Mats: I DEd some of the rings and necklaces that i made with green wrath gems and sold off all the mats. Infinite Dust and Greater Cosmic Essences were a no show on sunday except for my posts. I made around 1.5k here.
Prospecting Ore: the night before i had bought out all of the obsidium ore for under 70g a stack (normally 100g) and prospected it all in the morning. The best part about this was that one nightstone would pay for the entire stack and left everything else as pure profit. I also tried my luck with prospecting Adamantite ore. The powder sold decently and the gems were gone within the hour. I made about 2-3k here.
Obsidium Ore: When i was away from the game but at the computer i camped a section in Uldam that spawns four nodes at a time. I got about 10 stacks and sold them all for 150 gold. Combining that with the sales from the Volatiles i made about 1.75k.Those were the main items i sold, there were a few misc. items such as eggs and old cloth, plus some of the cata cloth. I was surprised to find that a few old enchanting scrolls sold as well.
The importance of this post wasnt to show you what to sell, when to sell, or how much to sell, it was explain one weekend day that i spent hardcore AH farming and what it led to. When i say "what it led to" i dont mean making over 10k in one day... i mean setting a goal, striving for it, and shattering it. Every day this week i have made made 3-6k more then my average and i blame it all on that Sunday. I gained confidence, knowledge, and momentum that substantially raised my daily gold average and i suggest that you all try the same.
For beginners hit every market as hard as you can for 5 hours during one day and see what you produce. Don't count the quick hitters in your results such as epic pieces or rare patterns. You want to first establish the daily routine that you can rely on.
