My New 85-89 MoP Item Market - Initial Results And Design
Just a quick post to say that, at least initially, the 85-89 Mists of Pandaria item market I decided to take a gamble on right before Patch 5.3 seems to be paying off.
The reason I got into this market was because the XP required to level from 85-90 was reduced buy 33%. This means more people leveling and thus more people buying weapons and armor from the auction house.
Head past the jump for more information on my new 85-89 MoP Item market.
The image above is from the mailbox of my 85-89 MoP seller. So far the market seems to fairly robust. I can't wait to see the results from the weekend as I normally make more flipping sales over the weekend.
What I am buying and for how much:
- 85 Mists of Pandaria non-crafted armor that is 45g and under.
- 85 Mists of Pandaria non-crafted weapons that are 75g and under with the exception of 1H caster weapons (wands, daggers and maces).
- 86-89 armor for 45g and under.
- 86-89 weapons that are 75g and under with the exception of 1-Handed caster weapons (wands, daggers and maces).
What I am selling and for how much:
- 85 Mists of Pandaria non-crafted, non-Plate armor sell for a regular price of 245g (TSM Fallback) with a low end price of 75g (TSM Threshold).
- 85 Mists of Pandaria non-crafted Plate armor sell for 395g (TSM Fallback) with a low end price of 125g (TSM Threshold).
- 85 Mists of Pandaria non-crafted, non-2-Handed weapons sell for a regular price of 395g (TSM Fallback) with a low end price of 125g (TSM Threshold).
- 85 Mists of Pandaria non-crafted 2-Handed weapons sell for a regular price of 495g (TSM Fallback) with a low end price of 125g (TSM Threshold).
- 86-89 non-Plate armor sell for a regular price of 245g (TSM Fallback) with a low end price of 75g (TSM Threshold).
- 86-89 Plate armor sell for a regular price of 395g (TSM Fallback) with a low end price of 125g (TSM Threshold).
- 86-89 non-2-Handed weapons sell for a regular price of 395g (TSM Fallback) with a low end price of 125g (TSM Threshold).
- 86-89 2-Handed weapons sell for a regular price of 495g (TSM Fallback) with a low end price of 125g (TSM Threshold).
If the above settings sound familiar it is because I based my new 85-89 Mists of Pandaria markets on my original work on my 83-84 Mists of Pandaria item markets.
Pricing is about the same. I buy items in the same way (Auctioneer Saved Searches).
If you're interested in getting into this brand-new market you can start by learning how I buy the items with the post Buying 83-84 MoP Items With Auctioneer Saved Searches with some changes.
The changes are making the minimum item level to 390 and making one search with the level range 85-85 (I do my 85 searches separately to better ignore crafted items) and 86-89.
If you do decide to work in level 85 items you have to be sure not to purchase crafted items. These can be readily undercut by competition. You're much better off sticking to dropped items.
If you're not sure if a item type is crafted look it up on Wowhead or check your tooltips for a source (some addons show items crafted by certain professions).
If you are on a high population realm know that there may be tons of these items up for sale under my prices. If that is the case think about being more picky about the items you buy.
I can say that Plate and 2-Handed weapons are a good place to start if you're on a high popluation realm.
As always the items that are "...of the Whale", "...of the Beast", and plate items, 2-Handed swords and shields "...of the Tiger" are terrible and should be avoided.
So will the 85-89 market be as robust as the 83-84 MoP item market? Time will tell. If it end up petering out I'll simply abandon the market and vendor the items.
Best-case scenario I've found a new market for myself.
