Preliminary Caged Battle Pet Pricing Data


In my continuing effort to understand and assess the feasibility of working in the cross-realm battle pet sales market I've been doing some data collection and analysis. I thought I'd share some of that research with all of you today.

As many of you may know there currently isn't any way to look up caged battle pet pricing on auction house data sites like The Undermine Journal and WoWuction. This leaves it up to each player to collect and analyze the data themselves. Head past the jump for some of the average prices I've seen for certain battle pets.

Researching Cross-Realm Battle Pet Arbitrage



In this day's episode we work on researching and recording pricing for cross-realm battle pet arbitrage across 4 different servers. We also answer lots of questions and even check out a fairly crazy MMO gaming mouse.

We really live finding these fiddly types of markets. It remains to be seen whether the amount of work involved in selling battle pets cross-realm is worth it but I love digging in to find out.

Pet Spy Set Up - Dec 13, 2012 Livestream



In this episode we not only go over our normal routine (83-84, etc.) but also start to set up a spy army of level 1 Starter Edition characters on our various servers. We did this in order to easily be able to track pricing and supply of battle pets in order to look for battle pet sales/arbitrage opportunities.

This livestream clocks in at just over 2 hours (split into three 40 min. segments) which feels like a really good length overall. Part 1 is above. Parts 2 and 3 are after the jump.

Leaving Space In Your Bags by Kyrum


Today's guest post was written by Kyrum. If you'd like the chance to see your own gold-making guest post appear on Power Word: Gold email the post text, title, images (attached) and your public name/pseudonym to powerwordgold@gmail.com with "Submission" in the subject line. 

If you are like me and farm dungeons you probably realized that even if you run into a dungeon with some fancy Netherweave Bags, or Embersilk bags, that it is inevitable that you are going to run out of bag space sooner or later, fly back or hearthstone back to a vendor to sell all your junk items, put stuff in your bank. So on and so forth.

So the story begins with me. At the time I was a lvl 88 protection pally needing to get some Netherweave.
I went on my dragon (everyone has one now don't they?) to go over to the old Burning Crusade dungeon called The Blood Furnace. If your newer to the game or just don't know where that is we got links. Read past the jump for more.

Auctionator Shopping List For Battle Pets



We've been working on the process of analyzing the possibility of buying pets on one server and selling them on another. In the process we've done a few things to prepare including creating a Starter Edition account and building level 1's on all the servers we are planning to try this on.

One of the things we realized was that we needed a quick way to be able to asses the battle pet markets on these servers as well as track the prices across servers to look for opportunities to buy and sell battle pets across server profitably.

While we won't go into all of the work we did to try to solve this problem we are going to share the Auctionator Shopping List that we built off of Kaexo's list that he provided in the post "Buy Battle Pets On One Server, Sell On Another". Head past the jump for the Auctionator-importable list.
