A little over 600k profit for the week, sales started slowing down – but they didn’t really. What actually happened is that I stopped restocking my two main crafts (LW/JC) and then I came down with a cold and spent a bunch of time doing nothing at all while I tried to get over it.
Sometimes, looking at the profit of other players simply doesn’t tell you the whole story. It’s easy to see a player pulling in millions and think “dang, I wish that was me” – but you don’t know how long they’re playing for. How long they’ve been working towards making gold. How long they invested. How long it took them to learn their market. It’s much nicer to focus on your own habits and improve upon those when and where you can. What everyone else is doing as far as gold making goes, doesn’t pertain to you. Some will make more, and some will make less.
No real surprises this week. I sold only four Strage Goop which was a bit low, I sold some laestrite ore that I found in the bank (rather use it than just save it up at this point in the game) – a great sale of some crafted transmog, and some flips (abyssal fragment). I also attempted to flip some exotic leather, but then decided part way through that I wanted to keep it and use it for my LW character. It happens.
Tomorrow is pre-patch! I’m excited. I don’t think I will be doing much (if any) gold making, but we’ll see. I have simple plans of leveling alts and making a Dracthyr, but it’s all low pressure fun. I am out of battle pets to level at the time of this post, so I may even level the old fashioned way.
Any big plans? Let me know in the comments, and as always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself.
