Old players returning ahead of Mists of Pandaria

for other ideas on the glyph market and other general tips see the free Croda's Inscription Gold Guide

These former players are returning to complete old content, emptying bag space and completing quests to prepare themselves for the new content.

Hence, they will be putting surplus items onto the Auction House to make a quick sale without really knowing their true worth.

This is a great time to pick up those recipes you are missing, buy cheap raw materials or even cheap rare drops.

Picking up those recipes you are missing

I use Auctioneer and it only takes 20 seconds to do when you are at the Auction House.

1.  Open the Auction House window

2.  Click Recipes and then select the profession you are searching

3.  Tick “Usable Items” on the top bar of the window

4.  then press Search

A list of recipes that you don’t own will appear. (if a very long list appears then it is likely you have not ticked “Usable Items”

I always buy recipes that are priced under 100 gold.

the example above shows that my the Auction House has 7 recipes (4 different ones) that my Tailor does not have though none are below my 100 gold price.

Only takes 20 seconds to do.

Seeking out cheap raw materials

I use Auction Snatch for this.

Auction Snatch keeps a saved list of items i want to buy from the Auction House and will automatically scan the Auction House for those items.

It is linked to the Auction House and will either open when you open the Auction House or you can press the tab, as shown above.

the starting window will look like the image below. you can add new items you want searched over time - by typing them into the query box at the top and pressing "Add Item". It is very intuitive. I initially set it up to scan for Titanium Powder (for my Jewelcrafter), Volatile Life, Book of Glyph Mastery and all the inks, all the herbs. Over time i have added other items such as cloth.

Pressing "Search" will start the scan.

When the first item on the list is found in the Auction House a new window opens with pricing information on this time and various options allowing you to Buy for example - as shown below. If you dont want to Buy you can move to the next item on the list by pressing "Next in List". The information is also displayed on your Auction House window as if you had manually searched for the item.

Hence, in a very short period of time you can go through all the items you often buy to see if there are any cheap items on the Auction House.

I do this scan at least once a day and it is a great way to pick up those cheap raw materials to craft as well as find cheap items that are normally highly priced.

Buying rare drops

These returning players will be putting rare drop items on the Auction House without being fully aware of their value or they may be wanting to get gold quickly.  This gives us a great opportunity to buy them and resell them at a much higher price.

See my main flipping market post and a follow up post on this matter.

It is a great way to earn gold and does not need a profession - just some bag space and some starting gold.

  1. This is a huge part of work at the moment. I only recently came back to WoW (and gold making) and so far i've picked up heaps of great catches such as
    Formula: Enchant Gloves - Riding Skill for 1600g
    Schematic: Lifelike Mechanical Toad 1200g

    Just set up TUJ notifications, WoW Remote and check your emails every hour or so. Let the money roll in!
