The "Treasure Potion Trash Dash" Challenges You!


We here at Power Word: Gold are always looking for new and interesting ways to compare ourselves to other gold makers. The struggle to see who has the largest gold epeen is never ending. Like the Highlander said "There can be only one master of gold".

With that in mind we've devised a fool-proof strategy for seeing who has the biggest sack...of gold. Introducing the "Treasure Potion Trash Dash"! The last server-independent gold-making contest you'll ever need. We'll go over the rules and our initial (and massive) results after the jump

The Idea
All joking aside I think The Treasure Potion Trash Dash (TPTD) will be a fun project for those of you out there who like to min/max things or want to take a break from the monotony if canceling and reposting day after day.

The basic idea of the Treasure Potion Trash Dash is that you drink a Potion of Treasure Finding and go kill anything you want in a Cataclysm zone for the 60 minutes the potion buff lasts. After you're done killin' you add up the Vendor Value for everything you acquired in those 60 minutes.

Forget Gold Per Hour (GPH) this contest is all about Vendor Value Per Hour (VVPH)! VVPH is a completely useless statistic in gold-making but is a perfect statistic in the confines of the Dash.

What I'm excited to see is how players take this and figure out the best places to farm for High Vendor Value  Items (HVVI). You ain't got to lie! I can see the gears in your head turning as we speak.

The Rules
Here are the rules for The Treasure Potion Trash Dash. Read them CAREFULLY.
  • You must drink a Potion of Treasure Finding. (The cost of the potion is irrelevant to the contest.)
  • Your final totals must only include the Vendor Value of the items looted during the 60 minutes the Potion of Treasure Finding was active.
  • You must do the dash be in a cataclysm zone (Vashj'ir, Mt. Hyjal, Deepholm, Uldum, Twilight Highlands and Tol Barad).
  • You may include items you skin/mine/herb from any mobs that die around you (including mobs you did not kill).
  • You may include items pickpocketed from mobs. You may not include the gold pickpocketed from mobs.
  • You may not include herbs/ore/gems mined or herbs from nodes. Only items mined/herbed/skinned from the bodies of dead mobs.
  • You may include the vendor value of ore/cloth etc. looted from a Tiny Treasure Chest you acquired during the 60 minutes.
  • You may include the value of the gold looted from a Tiny Treasure Chest.
  • You may not include the gold looted after killing a mob.
  • You must provide an item-by-item break down of how you reached your final total. (Example of proper results format below.)
  • You must submit you entry as a comment on this post or a link to the post on your blog where you post the results.
  • All results are on the honor system. If you lie about your results I'll pull down you pants in front of everyone and give you a spanking right here. I'll do it. Don't test me.

Why Vendor Value?
The reason I'm using Vendor Value for this dash is that it is the same across all servers. This means that if we all follow the rules and add up our results properly we will all be on an even playing field.

The auction house has no bearing on vendor value which makes it perfect. That said, VVPH is only really relevant in the narrow confines of this contest.

(Also because I said so!)

Tips
I'd recommend having at least 45 slots open in your bags. I like to do the whole dash without going back to the vendor. It makes adding everything up at the end easier.

Since you are allowed to mine/skin/herb mobs that other players kill you might want to find an area where you can get a few extra items (crocs in Tol'Barad, elementals in My. Hyjal etc.).

You are focusing on the Vendor Value of an item not the Auction House value. Some items worth a lot on the auction house have severely low Vendor Values. (Embersilk Cloth vendors for 75 copper each. Copper!)

Get creative and engage your brain. Use all the tools at your disposal (Wowhead, past grinding experience, etc) to develop your TPTD strategies. 

My Initial Results
You didn't think I would put this cacamayme dash together without testing it first did you? Oh noooo! I've done the leg work (well more like the smash-sword-into-face-work) and I'm going to show you the results now.

While the format for your results may differ slightly they must include:
  • Name of the item acquired
  • Number of each item
  • Exact item vendor value
  • Total value per item 
  • Vendor Value grand total 

In other words we need to be able to "check your work".

the easiest way I found to get results into text was added my items up in a spreadsheet. I then exported that spreadsheet as a .csv (comma separated values) file and opened that .csv file in Notepad. I then copied and pasted the text here (hence the commas). The format is a bit hard to read but perfectly adequate for our purposes here.

Here are the TPTD VVPH results for my Death Knight skinner farming in Sethria's Roost in Mt. Hyjal:

In the Dash run above I ended up with a VVPH of 153g 78s 54c. Not too shabby for a first attempt. Now lets see how I did on my second attempt.

Here are the TPTD VVPH results for my Paladin miner farming the earth elementals at the beginning of Mt. Hyjal:

Total Vendor Vale: 182.032

In this second attempt I raised my VVPH to 182g 3s 20c. Not a bad improvement. What other ways could I improve my VVPH?

A Goofy Challenge Meant To Be Lots of Fun
In case you haven't caught it yet this dash is completely ridiculous. No one in their right mind would do this to attempt to make actual gold. That isn't the point of the The Treasure Potion Trash Dash. 

The point is to pit yourself against others in the gold making community in a game of wits and grinding skills. Not everything we do has to be so serious.

I CHALLENGE YOU!
Consider this me personally calling you out. Think you have the skills? I challenge you to beat my totals above. I'm anxious to see who the the final winner will be. I'm anxious to see who will will figure out the mobs drop the best HVVIs. 

I challenge you (yes you sitting right there) to go out, do the dash and post your results in the comments here. Heck do it a few times. Feel free to post multiple results of you do multiple dashes.

If you have a blog I'd encourage you to make your results into a blog post. If I get enough bloggers linking posts in the comments here I will bundle them up and make a future The Treasure Potion Trash Dash results post and link to them all.

Good luck all. Let the games begin! Oh I'm just getting a note from flux now. It reads "Bring it on cupcake!"

Talking Points
  • Why are you still reading this and not out planning your TPTD strats?
  • Still reading? Did you think I joking about planning? 
  • OK. Now you're just mocking me.

PS: If you want any clarifications about rules let me know in the comments and I'll make up "official" sounding rule clarifications.

  1. I'd do it, but just writing things down requires too much time and I hate getting too much into details unless it's a topic that really gets me hooked. I'd say, vendor value only, submit screens, use ” X” addon for a vendor total as well as Z addon, such as Selljunk, to choose what other vendor trash you want to sell. Maybe would make lazy gold makers like me feel more interested in getting involved.

    I hope this gets some attention though. Would be so funny just because it should be an impossible challenge to make gold makers want to do.

    If I change my mind I’ll let you know.
    Good luck!

  2. I can include items that I skin/mine/herb, but can I include pickpockets?

    http://altosgoldishadvise.blogspot.com/2011/01/fridays-farmings-update-with-drops-and.html

    I will work on this spot this evening....

    ReplyDelete
  3. @Altolycus Yes. Pickpocketed items can be included. (Adding it to rules.)

    ReplyDelete
  4. @GrayzBDF I just shift clicked the items name into my chat window and copy/pasted it into my spread sheet, added amounts and values and let the spreadsheet calculate the totals.

    That said yes it is a very "mathy" challenge but some people (me included) love that kind of stuff.

  5. Got 1 done on my rogue (pick pocket ftw!) now wanna try on my skinner & my non-gatherer DK. Will post results on my blog. It was kinda fun & very interesting to see the differences in vendor values.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I did mine on a lvl85 DK skinner at Hyjal's place. Got about 145.80g (all vendor value) not counting the money looted from 6 treasure chests (auto-looted them all before seeing your post). I skinned 55 dragonscales in that hour, the highest scale/minute I've ever done.

  8. @Lamar Looks like some good lists. I look forward to your final Vendor value totals when you add them up (since that is pretty much the point of the dash). However since you didn't record (at least not in the comment) which greens you actually got that may be a bit hard.

    Good info either way.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I am making another run or two tonight. I will tally vendor values in them. I normally don't even look at the value of the greens because everything is sent to the be disenchanted. I always convert all of my leather into Heavy Savage Leather, then to Pristine Hides.

  17. Just found this from someone talking about it at The Undermine Journal. Just last night, I farmed 37 (yes, Thirty Seven) chests in an hour. I'll definitely do this tonight and total it up officially, but no one gets my spot before I do so :)

  18. Thanks for all the comments and posts so far. I'm loving all the stories and am glad to see everyone being goofy and having fun.

    I'm going to be doing a few more Dashes myself since Alto has set the bar pretty high.

    Keep it up!

  21. OK, so I did it three times, but the data on the first run was lost due to my accidentally saving over the name of the file after clearing it for the second run...

    It was about 98 G total, though. It was gathered while doing my TB dailies, and then finishing off on skinning/herbing is the croc area. I do not think that that area is good, though, as I was at 18 min left before my first treasure chest dropped.

    For my second run, I did the Twilight Highland beach. I like this a lot better then the other suggested Blackened Dragonscale location since there are a lot more mobs, and you do not have to wait for a re-spawn. Oh, and I set up my spreadsheet a little diffrently so that I can take out whatever Herbs and Volatile Lifes I picked up. Here is the summary:

  22. My third attempt, I tried to do the first time again, but about half way through, the PVP started, so I decided to do it as a half and half, and went back to the beach.

    Not as good as the second time. But still, very interesting, and very profitable, since most of the stuff picked up is NOT being vendered.

    Question though: Do the potions not only allow the chests to become available, but also increase chances of greens (or higher) to drop? Maybe it is because I am killing so many mobs in a short period of time, but whenever I am using the TF potions I always get a few greens, and even the odd blue, such as the JC recipe from my second run. Any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  23. So I tallied my 1st attempt & posted it on my blog first try. I really must do better so I'm gonna try it again, different alt, different place maybe :) Need more killing power! lol

  25. @Rzarazor That is some crazy RNG on the greens. Go out and buy a lottery ticket NOW! Looks like we have a new leader.

    *Hears Alto sharpening his blades as we speak* ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well, when you kill and loot almost 800 mobs in an hour you're bound to get a few extra greens :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Rzarazor Lawls. I hereby dub this new statistic MKPH (Mobs Killed Per Hour).

    800? You killed one mob every 4.5 seconds. Crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Awww man, I suck at this! I took my DK back to Stonehearth in Deepholm, killed almost non-stop for the whole hour & still only got to 126gish. I just need to kill quicker I think & some RNG luck too :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Nev Me too. I imagine Rzarazor and Alto as the Tasmanian Devil just one huge swirling tornado of death. lol.

    I either need to kill faster of find more expensive vendor trash.

  30. Here's a video of how I did it, at least a small part of my grind. Helps to have an iLvl 365 hunter with a certain spec at this area :)

    I also recorded all the contents of the Tiny Treasure Chests and might do something with them in the future.

  32. @Rzarazor hmm, yeah ilvl 365 might have a lot to do with it then! (although I'm not doubting skill is huge part too). My DK is only ilvl 335-ish & the numbers popping up all over your screen are wayyyyyyy higher than mine ever were! lol. Great fun to watch though :)

    I frapsed it too for some reason but im far too lazy to do anything with it, lol.

  36. @Foursection Those are some impressive results. I believe that moves you into the lead. I'll have to give that area another look.

    What class did you farm on?

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Foursection Felt is a warrior as well I believe. I'd love to see some of the footage even if it was just one circuit's worth.

  38. @fluxdada I'll see what I can do. Looks like i gotta go find myself some video software.

  39. I figured it out!

    Disregard the crappy editing/UI/clicking.

  40. @Foursection Thanks so much for putting that together. I'll have to give that spot a shot. Greens and chest drops seem quite high.

  41. [quote]stonehearth/fractured front in Deepholm[/quote]

    Just did this as well, this area is insane.
    I dont have the numbers printed out as some so dont count this as a registration for the contest.

    My actual results where even better, but I had to destroy about 20gish of trash to make room for more tresure chests and cloth...

    Results where :

    254g from looting and vendoring and opening chests
    17 green items
    31 treasure chests
    after opening the chests , I had about
    500 cloth
    3 more greens
    19 elementium ore
    11 pyrite ore
    5 fire / 3 air / 17 water / 2 life / 6 earth volatiles

    Class I did this with was MM hunter.

    I dont need the money, but whenever I need cloth Ill keep doing this, its a lot of fun actually trying to get as much as possible in an hour :D

  42. @benno1980 Great results! I am in love with that spot. Thinking of farming it with a potion to get greens to sell on the AH. Prices of 77-80 greens are quite high atm.
