Honey has been recycling mogs for a long time now, Aynslie seems to be following suit, and Merrily seems to be trapped in either Warlock tier or complete green sets for now. It's not that I don't want to mog them, it's just that I either don't have the space or want to make the time. Honey and Aynslie's bags are quite precarious, and since hitting 90 on Merrily I've been running A LOT of lfr's, flex and normals, quickly filling up her bag space and sucking up all of my free time.
Lately though...I've become obsessed with the auction house. I've been selling mog gear for quite some time now, but I'm not an active "flipper", and my realm isn't high pop, so my sales were slow and inconsistent. After buying my spectral tiger mount in December I've felt like I've been scraping bottom and struggling to get ahead.
Two weeks ago I decided it was time to make a change. I have an army of alts with professions, and I've never used them to sell things on the auction house. I have a miner and an herbalist to farm with, a scribe, blacksmith, engineer, tailor, enchanter, two alchemists (one pot one flask master), and I've recently power leveled Merrily's jewel crafting. I've always used the TradeSkillMaster addon to post my mog gear, but it has so many more extensions that are useful in posting for professions. With the help of a few guildies, I set up TSM to cater to these groups and set off farming.
I've been farming my poor little DK's butt off, and making a TON of things. I haven't run anything, other than a few LFR's on my enchanter to try to get some Sha Crystals. I watched my sales for the first few days double what I'd normally make in a week with transmog, then triple it, then more. As of this moment I'm making in a day what I was making in a week. Granted it's not too terribly much, but it's a vast improvement to say the least. I don't know if I can keep it up this much or this hard, but the payoff has been rewarding to say the least.
I feel like I dove head first into the deep end after being in the kiddy pool, and I have A LOT to learn about the market. It was much more brutal than I'd anticipated, and a lot more work. For now I'm starting to get all of the items I want to sell at least, and hopefully I'll be a bit smarter about how I do business in general in the future. I'm sure I've messed up a few times so far!
I want to have a very nice cushion of gold going into Warlords, and so far it looks like I may be able to do that. It's also nice to go "hm, I COULD buy that". There's always Invincible on the BMAH to consider...oh...and mog gear. Can I have more bag space yet PLEASE Blizzard?! Thanks!
