Wish I had more Lotus

In bags: 3725g
Top amount of the week: 7634g, of pure income
Currently working on: Glyphs, Flasks, Eternal Buckles
Stockpiling: Saronite (to level Bs), Eternal Earth, Wotkl Green Gems.

For RL reasons I've not been very active in playing Ah in those few days and as result, my stockpiled glyphs are getting  fewer and fewer not to mention is a full 4 tab Gbank of Icethorn and Adder's waitig to be milled.
Decisions have been made, so I'm gonna work with higher numbers and cancell less.
To cope with the fact that atm I'm too tired to push hard the AH( I'm getting zzzzzz like around 11pm), I've decided to get again in the pre-raid flasks market, for some easy time.

Well, the result was shocking, I made nearly 8k in two days.
I was like *Gaaaaahhhh??!*
Now I'm coverying the supply of all the flasks except the Endless Rage one, for which, no Lotus was left, with prices that vary from 25g to 29g, with a profit of 25-30%, filling Ah and working on COD orders.
I will place the leftover 75 tonight and roll in the money in Scrooge McDuck's style.

We (He) like(s) each other (my golds)

In bags: 2700g
Working on: Inscription, Flasks, BS, Enchanting
Buying: Herbs, Lotus, Gems, Eternals
Donated to Gbank: Fish, Meat, 10 Frost Wyrm

The patch hitted and I'm not so broken anymore,  the stocks I've prepared finally gave me some fresh air and most important, saved my butt as well.
Except for some flasks session, which poor procs rate, 10 extra out of 76, I burned out most of my Glyphs and Dusts and haven't got the time to fill the bags again, as I was more concerned in assisting my prescious lil dog who got a surgery on Wed then to go for a milling/DE trip.

Two items I sold like candy yesterday, mostly by COD, were Eternal Life and Moonshroud, which I stockpiled in advance, sniffing the massive arrival of badges' Crusader Orb in ah.
I also crafted some cards for a friend, for which I had to purchase the Eternal life in Ah, as I runned off myself, I found a cheep stack in ah for 17g each, and with my own big surprise, an hour later, I got a guildy saying me "tank you for the donation" on Ventrilo. Her's Eternals!

I haven't tried the Runescroll of Stamina market as Mr.HS suggested me yesterday, as for  lack of time as I didn't tink this could have a such a big success as it had, partially also because I'm a priest in my RL wow life!

The big news is that I officially have a farmer, who's selling me COD all his major herbs at 0.70s each, 14g/stack, who will also provide me Lotus for 30g and some Eternals as well, for which we still have to discuss the price.
He's not a chinese, but I've decided - making him smile - to not be racist or too picky;
he's a farmer and we (he) like(s) each other ( my golds)!

Pie anyone?

In bags: 900g

In items: 8k
Currently working on: Inscription, Jewelcrafting
WTB: Frost Lotus

In this weekend I burned a lot of money buying herbs,
6k of Icethorn to be precise and some wotkl gems.
I got so many of them that I wrote Mr.HS to hurry up and get some, wait.. whoot?

I´m not crazy or high, and already got my weekly dose of glue sniffing while repairing books here at work, so let´s see the reasons behind this:

- the 2 of us share the same AH, that we like it or not, that´s it
- we are in the same markets
- we ( I assume a plural) don´t like competitors
- I bought the cheapest of them before telling him ( **giggle**)

So why don´t literary cut off the rest of them?
If I get pie, he gets pie, we are happy and the other aren´t cause we got it all for us!
Or eventually it will reduce the numbers of them, as the price they pay for the raw product wouldn´t be worth the time of milling, check AH, crafting and posting.

Did it work?
I´m happy to give a positive answer!

- I was able to donate some to my GBank
- Possibly got a farmer
- A whole tab filled half raw herb, half inks on my mule Gbank,
      pigments waiting the expiring time to rejoin me
- And last but not least...
     Saturday I sold both in AH as by COD, tons of Snowfall Ink for 24g each, which proved my point!

You think I got a nice week?

You´re probably right!

Glyph making and the fine art of undercutting

How many Scribes can a faction feed?

The Highlander's attitude toward sellers.

In my AH there are several people trying their luck , usually vanishing in a couple of day, soothed by the "I sir, at least got a pro shoulder's enchant" feeling also:

On a cancel/repost session is interesting to check which names pops up more often;
this will help you to understand who's on the other side of the screen, trying to fish from your lake!

So in the end, there is just the 7 of us, like the cutie Cindarella's dwarves, earning a piece of market every day and make our alt mules carry the endless pocket weight.

For what I could see, those are more or less the profiles of all I will call from now on "My Beloved Undercutters" ;

 - The Batchers, Auctioneer's dependant, they somethimes reset the market, the sweetest thing ever if I'm low on those 2 ink Glyphs;

- The cherry picking guys, they check the prices, craft, list and goes, never heard of them for couple of days; at their place I would at least repost twice a day!

- The levelling tards, ok, neeext

- Me and Mr. Happy Scribe 's fellow mules, QA's lovers, carpet bombing

And special mention for Gevlon 's Fanboy, for naming his mule after Mr. Goblin site, but proved ( in my opinion) of not beeing so smart as his idol, for our luck, I may say!

What a surprise! Seller Unveiled!

Even If I gave up writing for about 3 months, I'm an attentive wow related blog reader,
this girl does her homework!

Yesterday something very funny happened to me:
I came across the blog of the glyph pusher of my server, which is eventually the guy
I'm undercutting from about the last 2 month in various markets.

"What a surprise" isn't actually what I though in the first instance, I was more like
"Muhahaha, wafflemeow, I GOT YAAA",
and started reading, and tracking.

He's a nice guy, his writing style is easy to read and enterteining, also it give another point of view of the market we share, which is indeed very interesting.

I didn't recognize him by his alts name, which btw were already in my friend list with a nice
1/5 progression, but for an AH screenshot he posted; saw know names on that pic, made me jump on my chair, really!

This made me giggling all the day long, till I decide it would be polite let him know I found him,
I don’t like spying people.

Would you have done the same?
