I am in the process of writing up a gold making via crafting article, of which a large part was going to be using auctioneer and lil-sparky to determine how to use your crafting skill to make gold. However, if someone has already written it, even better. The article above is about using these two addons to make gold using blacksmithing, with some specific advice for blacksmiths (feel free to ignore if not applicable). However, the principle is the same for all crafting professions - including cooking:
- Scan the auction house.
- Use Lil-Sparky to see what sells for more than it costs.
- Get the mats.
- Craft a few and trickle feed your items onto the AH.
- If something sells - make more somethings. If it sells alot - make alot.
Farming is not free. If you ever feel that farming time is free, I have a large list I would like you to farm for me - it shouldn't take you more that 24 hours a day.
Edit: blessed blog. I had "<" crafting ">"
