Inscription: Potential Cataclysm Goldmines.

Thinking about dropping inscription? Don't! While it may seem scribes are getting the shaft they are in fact getting new ways to make gold.  After the rush of worgens and goblins is over your scribe will not be making as much off glyphs and over all they may not be able to pull the same kind of gold they use to I still believe the profession will hold its own in the gold department. For the sake of this post I'm going to assume you will still be crafting a posting glyphs. If time is a factor just identify the glyphs that sell most often for each class and only focus on those.

Engineering: Potential Cataclysm Goldmines.

Wait what? Engineering?  How is engineering, a profession that has in the past been poor in the gold department, going to make me gold?  Well Engineering has been given the usual items to make gold and Cataclysm is no exception.  Cata, however, has given a few extras that will at least boost income in the beginning but may prove the be less profitable later in the expansion.

Blacksmithing: Potential Cataclysm Goldmines.

 Quick note I got Wowhead Tooltips working so I will not be bothering to explain what any items do anymore.

Blacksmithing has the same basic layout as Wrath.  It doesn't however have all the complexity due to Cataclysm only having 5 levels to work with.  Also there are only a few pieces of armor any blacksmith will be crafting to gear for level 85 Heroics and raids.  I do not believe any of the low level gear will sell well right off the bat in Cataclysm and so at least at first to make Blacksmithing as profitable as possible you will need access to the later patterns.

Alchemy: Potential Cataclysm Goldmines.

Alchemy will continue to provide people with the profession a wide range of possibilities to make gold.  Alchemy also provides what will possibly be the largest gold sink in the game with Vial of the Sands.  There are however a few things within Alchemy that could prove to be Goldmines and possibly some pitfalls as well.  Just a heads up before I give my opinion on certain items this is purely speculation at this point and is by no means the be all end all for what you should focus on in Cataclysm.

Turkey Break.

Hey just wanted to let you all know I'm not giving up already.  I will however not be posting for the next couple days as I will not have time to myself for the next couple days.

Just a few notes from the bit of playing time I got in today.

Cataclysm Stratigies. "The best laid schemes of mice and men"

This post has been submitted to be included in the JMTC Gold Blog Carnival.  Be sure to head on other there December 2nd to check out all the great postings on this months topic. What's your 'Cataclysm Gold Strategy?'

So whats my strategy going into Cataclysm?   On the very basic level my strategy is to continue business as normal.  Sure the items bought and sold will change but I plan to focus on making gold through crafted goods.

How easy can it get?

So if your anything like me you keep anything and everything of value and sell it only when it makes you the most gold. As may be true on other servers one of the hardest items to sell at times is Chilled Meat.

Heads up for those that may not know

According to the current PTR build the shattering may bring Ink Of the Sea stockpiling to an abrupt halt.  As of right now Sellers is now trading Blackfallow ink for the lesser inks instead of IotS on the PTR.  Wile this may very well be changed before the patch goes live I wouldn't want to count on this.  Plan to change your ink over before next Tuesday if you have not been doing it already.

Why Saronite Ore?

So if your the type who has been stockpiling you have no doubt been trying to figure out what and why to stockpile.  Ink of the Sea and the other inks you trade it for are an obvious choice for scribes as their goods are needed by everyone at least once.  Other than the ink what else would be worth our time to stockpile?  Enchanting mats are one possibility but the market on these will be very volatile with the LFD tool and I wouldn't want to sink a ton of gold here only to find the demand more than keeps up with supply.  Basically outside of inscription I don't see any security stockpiling something that doesn't give you more then 1 or 2 options of how you sell off your supply.  So whats this magical item that gives us almost endless possibilities of how we can sell it off?  Well if you read the Title of this post you would know it to be Saronite Ore.

What are you doing to get ready for Cata?

Well if you are someone who likes to play the Auction House your answer better not be nothing.  On the other side you better not be blindly stocking up on anything and everything without reason.  Once you have your reasons you need to keep those feelers on the ground in case it turns out Blizzard in a personal vendetta decides to make what your stockpiling useless.

Yes I got bit by the Razzashi Hatchling bug.  If you thought about stocking up on these I'm sure you are relieved you didn't with the news they will make a return in Cata.  For those who did buy them I wouldn't liquidate your stock just yet.

Reâsons tõ ũsě spečial characters on your Bank alt

I know for some people these characters are annoying as hell, and others who cannot roll a toon without using them in the name.

There are thousands of toons on your server with letters like č è á â é ë ñ õ and others among them. Wile for the most part these cause no issues occasionally someone with these characters can have issues obtaining a party or raid invite without sending a tell to the group or raid leader. The simple fact that people can't type out your name is why you would want your bank toon to have a name like this.... (and I like lists so heres a list of reasons)

Welcome to an experiment

When I say that I'm not saying that anything you read here will be completely different than anything else you ever read. I'm saying that I want to try my hand at documenting my experience with the Auction House and maybe in turn expose a mistake or market to those who find their way here.

If for any reason you've found yourself here looking for WoW gold tips, this blog is new and thus doesn't have all of what your looking for yet. I do have a few suggestions as to who you can read to get more great information.
