Great Mogging Finds: The Huge Thorium Battleaxe



Today I wanted to share a mogging item I've been having good success selling: The Huge Throium Battleaxe. This item can be crafted by almost any Blacksmith in the game but I doubt if anyone on your server is selling it. Head past the jump for my experience selling the Huge Throium Battleaxe.

New Star Wars: The Old Republic Section of Power Word: Gold Launched


In preparation for the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Old Republic we've launched a new section of Power Word: Gold dedicated to exploring the ins-and-outs of the SWTOR economy. You can find it at tor.powerwordgold.net. We are excited about this new section mainly because of the opportunity to explore a brand new MMO and it's corresponding economy.

For us making gold has always been about learning new things, trying new techniques and solving new puzzles. The SWTOR launch offers us all these. That said, as we stated in our introductory PW:G TOR post "The Journey Of A Thousand Credits", we don't plan on mixing our TOR chocolate into our WoW peanut butter. More mixed metaphors after the jump.

A shot of our tweetdeck this morning.

Since we started the @PowerWordGold twitter account at the beginning of the year we've seen a large increase in the amount of gold-makers (bloggers and players alike) who are joining twitter. A wonderful milieu of gold making goodness has developed. a primordial ooze of news, tips, questions and answers bubbles up on twitter daily. If you want to know what is going on in World of Warcraft gold-making right now twitter is a great place to start looking.

Today I am going to be listing my own 25 must-follow gold-making twitterers. If you have even the slightest interest in making gold than these should be the first 25 people you follow. Head past the jump for the list.

We finally have the list we've all been clamoring for: Keelhauls list of mogging items he's been making a killing off of since Patch 4.3 and the introduction of Transmogrification. Feel free to bookmark this post as I think it will be one many of us will be referring back to a lot. Let's hop past the jump and straight into the list.

Building A Valor Bracer Shopping List



In this video "WoW Gold-Making - Auctionator & Wowhead For Shopping Lists" I go over how to use Wowhead's item search filters to find bind-on-equip (BOE) item level 397 bracers (known as "Valor Bracers") and add them to an Auctionator shopping list. (The filter I build in the video can be found here.)

I build these type of shopping lists to quickly find which (if any) Valor Bracers I should be buying from players selling them in trade chat for flipping purposes. It should be noted that Valor Boots are also BOE and can be bought/sold in the same way.

For a written description of this process (although the items are now outdated) see our previous post "Buying And Selling Valor Boots For Profit".

How The Economics of Dreamcloth Are Changing



While working on one of my two tailors today I made a fairly startling discovery. The economics of creating Dreamcloth have completely changed. I first heard rumblings about this via @ssmith0911 and @msherretz on twitter. Basically the way I made Dreamcloth before Patch 4.3 very well may be a thing of the past.

I've been selling off my stocks of Dreamcloth as spell threads and had planned on simply making more the way I always had. I'm glad I didn't. Read on past the jump for my analysis of things every tailor should consider before making one more piece of Dreamcloth.

My Mailbox Tactics For Tracking Sales



In this video I go over my own techniques for using the addons Postal and My Sales to quickly keep track how my sales are going.

Here is an image of the Postal settings I discuss about in the video.



(As a side note: I was experimenting with using a new technique for doing live multi-screen section videos. It's a bit rough and rambly but I thought it worked out pretty good. Feel free to give me any feedback in the comments.)
