- 16:34 Don't mess with the Eggpimp!
- 21:00 Infinite Dust selling well. (Made from disenchanting jewelery made with extra Lich King uncommon gems created as a by-product of prospecting Saronite Ore to get gems to make Icy Prisms now that the Icy Prism cooldown is removed.)
- 24:04 How Jokine has been making gold this week.
- Shuffling massive amounts of Cataclysm ore.
- 25:10 Transmuting, cutting and auctioning Ember Topaz and Demonseye from Hessonite and Nightstone.

- 39:29 Jokine explains in-depth how to flip iLevel 359 epic items for profit.
- 40:16 Recommended addons used for flipping epics: Auctioneer and TradeSkillMaster
- 42:53 All Cataclysm epics are not created equal. Heroic Zul'Aman/Zul'Gurub iLevel 353 epics are not the same as traditional iLevel 359 epics. ILevel 353 epics are much more common and lower priced. Stick to iLevel 359 epics.
- 44:55 TradeSkillMaster to give direction on prices.
- 45:20 Try to find cheap epics BEFORE you do your scan to keep the higher prices present in the addon.
- 48:05 People buying epics may wait a long time to decide to finally purchase a Cataclysm epic.
- 49:10 Check once a day. When you get more into flipping epics you will start checking for epic flipping opportunities multiple times a day.

- 52:26 flux decides to put "Project Goblin" on hiatus in order to transfer back a level 82 to be his the main Horde trading character on his account (he plays mostly Alliance).
- 53:20 flux considers buying chopper parts in order to transfer gold (or gold value rather) across factions.
- 55:40 Sometimes it is just better to leave gold on the opposite faction rather than risk losing value in the process of moving it across.
- 59:13 Farming the Reins of Poseidus swimming mount from Poseidus.
- 1:00:58 Watch for Burgy Blackheart who drops the Burgy Blackheart's Handsome Hat which turns you into a ghostly gnome pirate. Arrrr me mateys!
