What I am doing now

You are most likely here because you enjoy crafting. I have been reading up on some of the WoW issues regarding gold making, which make me realize that WoW is not the game for me.

If you want to play a game where gathering and crafting is the cornerstone of the economy, and are not faint of heart, I recommend EVE Online. EVE even has releases purely to support industry. You can play for free if you are good enough manufacturer or trader.

Be the builder in a villainous world.

Caelestraz Alliance glyph sellers are idiots

Every single one of you (Did I ever mention I sell glyphs on Alliance Caelestraz?)

If in doubt - create/use a horde toon and have a look at the horde AH prices.  I picked Warrior glyphs and looked at the first two pages.

Glyph of Demoralizing shout : Horde 99g; Alliance 44g
Glyph of Enduring victory : Horde 100g; Alliance 13g
Glyph of Mortal Strike : Horde 125g; Alliance 13g

Do I need to continue?
Some of us need to sell glyphs to the other side.  Many of us already have access to children, spouses, guildmates who can help us shift glyphs.

My fellow competitors, if you don't do it, I am going to start.

This is today's second post.  If you missed it, you may also like to read Convert Ink of the Sea immediately?


  1. you mad? :P

    1) demand and supply

    2) as you probably know, glyph prices are cyclical, ie, one competitor always have the lowest threshold, when it reaches that point, other posters stop posting and when those glyphs are sold the price resets to fall back; you may have just caught those glyphs at the wrong time

    3) arbitrage until your heart's content, unless you are lazy and hoping that this post will encourage your competition to do it so you don't have to?

    ps, what are herb prices like horde side?

  2. An interesting thought is it could be in part how much you are impacting the market. Basically there is too much supply alliance side for the demand that is there. I think many times we forget the impact that we as regular sellers have on the prices. Unless you are resetting prices this is what happens when the demand just can't buy all what is listed. I have been resetting prices on my server as some sylphs were 4-12gold and they could easily be reset to 200gold. One glyph sold would result in a very nice profit. I reset 5-10 of these a night. It has been going very well.

  3. Many times when I see this, it has nothing to do with supply and demand. The AH could be empty of glyphs and odds are someone will still list theirs at 13g. There's only so much you can do against someone who thinks 3g is a lot of gold.
