I thought I understood how the auction house worked. I thought I knew how to make gold in WoW, but before the only maxed out professions that I had was engineering and mining. Gathering professions can make money, but it takes a log of time. Engineering is another matter. The only thing that’s good about engineering when it comes to making money is the fact that you can farm elementals while you are mining. But I don’t even know if that’s still an option in cataclysm. I should probably look into that.
Well, I got my deathknight to 85 and got her jewelcrafting and mining leveled up. Then I got alchemy and enchanting leveled on my Priest (well, I never quite finished leveling my enchanting, but I’m above 500 at least).
Now I’m attempting to make money using alchemy and jewelcrafting.
It’s actually working. I can actually buy a stack of obsidium ore, prospect take those gems and sell them for a profit. Some I cut and then sell to the vendor, others I send to my alchemist to have to have uncommon gems be transmuted into rare gems (only certain colors), then cut them and make a nice profit.
I’m not as good as some, but it’s an aspect of the game I had really given much time to before. The whole process is truly a minigame on it’s own, almost an elaborate version of lemonade stand. I’m kind of getting wrapped up in it.
Now I’m leveling a Druid with alchemy so I can have another daily transmute available. That and I wanted a toon in the 70s to play with my friend, it was either the Druid or the warlock. The thought of bringing a healer to go with his tank was appealing for dungeons.
I’m falling back into my alt problem. I guess “problem” is the wrong word for it.
