What has been selling in 3.3.3

April 6, 2010

Today I am going to take a step back and analyze what has been selling for me on the auction houses that I frequent. The main thing is that like normal tradeskill mats still rule the auction house for resale value.

The first thing that has been making me a healthy profit so far has been Ebonweave cloth. Why not the other cloths? Well I am not spec’d for those, but you can do this with any of the cloths if you wanted. Ebonweave also happens to be the cheapest of the 3 to make and provides the most profit on my server. Eternal Shadows run for around 10-13g per each one on my server, while eternal fire runs 25-35g, and eternal life runs around 16-18g. The infinite dust is around 90s per dust at this point and the cloth is 50s per cloth on my server. This gives us a cost for a person spec’d in that cloth mastery of (high end) – Ebonweave 14.4g, Spellweave 36.4g, and Moonweave 19.4g. Ebonweave and Moonweave are running around 30g per cloth at this time. Spellweave is around 45g at this time. Take these numbers we get a profit margin of – Ebonweave 15.6g, Moonweave 10.6g, Spellweave 8.6g per cloth.

The next item up on the list is Titansteel and everything it takes to make this item. Looking at the items in the list that is used to make this item we have Saronite Bars (transmute titanium bar) 30g per stack, Titanium Bar 15g per bar, Eternal Fire 25-35g, Eternal Shadow 10-13g, Eternal Earth 5g. Titansteel is currently selling for around 100g a bar still, which given the mats gives you a profit (high end spending) of 7g. Yuck if you spend on the high end because the auction house is going to take 5g per 100g off of you.

Your best bet is to find a transmute spec alchemist to get that cost down. By finding a transmute spec alchemist you can catch some procs on transmuting titanium bars from saronite bars. Cost on titanium bars this way is 12g per bar without procs. You can probably get this cost down to around 10g counting the procs. Another trick is if Frozen Orbs on your server are going for less then the cost of an eternal fire then you snap the orbs up and turn those in. Orbs are going between 25-30g on my server. With our new costs of 10g and 30g we can get the costs down to 78g per bar and a profit of 17g after we subtract the 5% cut of the auction house. This is a much better number then the last one.

As always the glyph market is profitable, but there has been a slow down in sales as people are starting to jump ship till Cataclysm. I would suggest keeping up normal production as possible so that you will be overstocked when Cataclysm comes out. As other bloggers have noticed that supply for herbs is starting to slow down as people get burnt out or farmers get banned since blizzard has a bit more time on their hands with a shrinking customer base.

As always keep an eye on Primordial Saronite. There was a small spike in price after 3.3.3 but nothing to be too noticeable for too long. This may change with the announcement that the only way to get the extra rewards from Arthas is to have a Shadowmourne wielder on the raid when you kill him.
