Fur linings giving me +76 spellpower.
I spent roughly 5000g for LW ( I leveled Blacksmith on my toon and spent 11,500 between them).
The mats were relativly cheap, but the high end recipees are expensive (in arctic furs).
According to auctioneer, the value of LW items is 5,700g. I expect to sell this for about 5,000g, as I dont expect that all of the items will sell at market price.
What I have:
|What||Quantity||Skill Level||Market Each||Total Market|
|Cloak of Harsh Winds||7||380||85||595|
|Dark Iceborne leggings||9||395||23||207|
|Heavy Borean Armor kit||2||395||50||100|
|Nerubian Leg Armour||2||400||37||74|
|Jormungar leg armour||8||405||108||864|
|Durable Nerubhide Cape||2||440||317||634|
|Ice strikers cloak||2||440||370||740|
The columns above include what I made and still have while levelling, the number of items left, the skill level required, the expected sale price per item and the total expected sale price. The numbers change from server to server, and week to week. Use lil-sparky to get the best numbers for your server as opposed to my list.
I will sell items for roughly this amount, but will probably need to disenchant the odd item.
The addons I used for this levelling were:
- Auctioneer - This addon lets you see the average prices of items on the AH. It also assists in my buying and selling of items on the auction house.
- Lil Sparky's workshop - This addon uses Auctioneer prices, and lets you know the expected cost and sale price of anything you can make.
- Ackis Recipee List - This addon lets you know what recipees you are missing, and where to get them.
Use Auctioneer to get prices from the auction house. It is best to do this several times at least. There are two ways to do a scan. In the image below the >> button does a quick scan, but may disconnect you on a slow connection. The Scan button works page by page, is much slower, and may occaisionally miss an item, but will consistently work
Use Lil Sparky's workshop to suggest what to craft, i.e. at a profit. If the recipee name is Orange, it is guaranteed to grant a level, Yellow is likely to grant a level, and Green might grant a level. Grey recipees don't grant levels. It also tells you how much something should cost to make (left hand column), and an expected sell price (right hand column). If you want more detail, hover your mouse over the gold amounts.
That said, some things are likely to have over-inflated prices from auctioneer (like frost gear), and others are likely to sell better (armor kits).
I managed mostly to keep to orange recipees with a good chance of profit
I also made Heavy Borean Leather, and the fur linings when ever I could.
There are times that I wanted to find new recipees - that is where Ackis Recipee list came in, showing me what other recipees are available, and where to get it.
