3.3.3 Results so far

March 24, 2010

Results of predictions so far on my server have been luke warm for some things and spot on for others. The change from Monday to Tuesday on prices of many things jumped drastically due to changes in cooldowns. The price of all of the cloths dropped immediately by 30-40 gold. The prices for all 3 of the eternals to make these cloths jumped by 2x -4x the amount over night. Frost lotuses dropped another 10g on my server. Frozen orbs went up in cost by 13g more. Apparently there is so much back stock of infinite dust that it didn’t budge at all in price. Titanium bars jumped in price from 12g to 25g. Saronite bars also took a jump in price, yet the ore did not. So for you smiths this may be a good way to make some extra cash at this time. Primordial Saronite has yet to jump in price, but that may be because I have yet to see any crafted 264 gear hit the auction house as of last night. This just seems odd to me with the other materials being much cheaper now to get.

For all you auctioneers keep an eye on what is going on in the auction house. Many people are still using old pricing structures on many of these items and it would be wise to snatch those items up and resell them at a profit. For example last night I found a ton of eternal shadow at half price of what it was set at. It looked like someone just dumped the items on the auction house without checking the new prices.  It should be asy to make a killing in this market even if you weren’t completely back stocked on items by just flipping things from the people not up to date with what is really going on in the auction house.


Are you prepared?

March 22, 2010

3.3.3 is almost upon us and hopefully you are all sitting on a large stack of frozen orbs, various eternals, infinite dust, primordial saronite, frostweave bolts, icethorn, lichbloom, goldclover, and titanium bars. You may be thinking that is an odd assortment of items  to be sitting on for this patch.

Well if the little light bulb hasn’t popped up yet I shall give you a hint. All of those items are going to be used for crafting either flasks or 264 boe purples. Frozen orbs will be turned into frost lotus. Frost lotuses should drop in price quick, but those frozen orbs hopefully you bought on the super cheap so you should make a good profit off those.

All of the other mats you may want to be turning around and flipping since everyone and their brother will be scrambling to pick those up with cooldowns removed off everything you will be needing to make 264 boe epics. Any boe 264 crafted epics you have out there now you may want to try and get sold tonight post haste because those will be dropping fairly quickly. On a positive note though your primordial saronites that you stocked up on will be making a price jump for a few weeks while people are scrambling to buy those up for crafting.

Have a happy patch day and bury your competition under your mountain of gold.

Eternals in 3.3.3

March 3, 2010

Last time I discussed frost orbs and the need to scoop them up as fast as you could in preparation for 3.3.3. Well that is not the only major news for 3.3.3. All of the tailoring specialty cloths are coming off cooldown. This means that there is going to be a huge demand for eternals to craft all of this cloth with. Many tailors are going to want to start mass producing this cloth so that they can use it to craft the ICC pattern items.

What this means is if you are a betting man, the night before the patch you clean out the auction house of any eternals that are at or less then the 100% going rate and then repost them for a 5-10g profit that will happen on the day of the patch.

Some of you may be thinking this might be a bit of crazy talk since you will be able to buy eternals with frozen orbs. My question is, who the hell is going to be using frozen orbs for eternals? You will get the most bang for your buck right away converting orbs to frost lotuses or just reselling the orbs themselves.
