Beverly Hills, Baltimore and Baghdad - Server Makeup and Mogging Sales


As I have been struggling to sell mogging items on my server, all the while watching other prominent gold-makers raking in (what seems to be) tons of gold selling mogging items, a theory started to slowly develop in the back of my mind.

Today I present this theory, refined over many many livestreams,  to everyone today. I call it the "Three 'B's" theory and it very well could be the answer to why you have been seeing lower than expected results selling mogging items on your server. Read about the "Three 'B's" past the jump.

The Power Word: Gold Guide - Fully Updated For TradeSkillMaster!



We are proud to announce that The Power Word: Gold Guide has been fully updated and is now current with the recent (Feb 2012) overhaul of TradeSkillMaster's user interface, new modules and new features. The Power Word: Gold Guide is now more useful than ever!

If you've been struggling to learn TradeSkillMaster the latest Power Word: Gold Guide is a great in-depth manual for doing nearly everything in the addon. We were lucky enough to have Faid (from Clockwork Riot) work along side us to update the TradeSkillMaster section of the guide and, while I'm not usually one to brag, the new TSM section turned out fantastic! Head to the Store to buy the guide now or read on to find out what else we updated.

Countdown To My "One Month, One Toon" Challenge Ending. [Videos]



Above is final part (8 of 8) of the recorded livestream I did last night where I recorded what I did as my "One Month, One Toon" Challenge ended. (You should probably start with part 1 down below.) The recording is about 2 hours long and is split into 8 parts to make it a bit more "YouTube friendly".Watch the whole stream using links below.

YouTube: Playlist (Includes all parts), Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8.
twitch.tv: Jim Younkin - WoW Gold-making. Countdown to my "One Month, One Toon" Challenge ending. 3.17.2012 (Full recording.)

(While looking over the videos after the fact we noticed some "audio drift" in a few of them. If it bothers you you might try the twitch.tv recording linked above which doesn't seem to have the issue. We're still getting used to how things get from twitch to YouTube and we're not quite sure where the breakdown occurred. Still a great stream.)

"One Month, One Toon" Challenge Update: Day 29



So I am officially on my last day of my "One Month, One Toon" Challenge. In just over 12 hours I will be able to finally start playing my other characters! If you've been watching my livestreams (twitch.tv/jimyounkin) over the last month you know that there have been times where I've chaffed under the Challenge's restrictions of only playing one character for an entire month.

After the jump I talk a bit about what I've learned from the challenge, some unexpected side-effects. What I hated most. What I loved most. What I did (and didn't) get accomplished and more this last month.

Going Into "Low Power" Mode for 2 Months


I've decided that I would be best if I turned the heat down on some of the things I've had cooking at a roaring boil for the last 6 months or so here at Power Word: Gold. "Real-life" concerns as well as I general feeling of "working hard and not getting anywhere" have lead me to the conclusion that it's time to refactor and refocus.

If you've been a long-time reader/follower of Power Word: Gold you'll know that I have entered these "low power" modes before. For the most part, they are a way for me to relax and re-evaluate all the things I ve been doing as far as Power Word: Gold goes. In this case I have some real "real life" things that have, sadly, been neglected in my push to make Power Word: Gold into a real business. Head past the jump and get details on what you can expect from PW:G in the next two months.

Selling 77-80 Cata Gear To Scroll of Resurrection Level 80s



With Blizzard announcing a new Scroll of Resurrection (SoR) promotion that gives people (nearly) free and instant level 80s there should be a small window of opportunity for us to sell these new level 80s level 77-80 Cataclysm greens. The default gear for the new level 80s is iLevel 232. Cataclysm greens start at iLevel 272 which is a big upgrade.

If the are being played by players like myself the first thing they are going to do is hit the AH and look for Cataclysm greens to replace much of their pre-made gear. Read on past the jump for a few quick tools to help in your search.
