Lets take a small step back.

Okay so Cataclysm is in full swing and many auctioneers have their focus on making gold with all the new materials and craftables.  Even the ones who stockpiled Wrath materials to sell for profit in Cataclysm are missing a great opportunity to cash in on.  With material prices still high many players are turning the clock back to Wrath in order to achieve as many skill ups as possible.  This gives us a great opportunity to grab some quick profit.

Squeezing All The Juice Out of The Feast of Winter Veil

By now you have sold small eggs and possibly sold milk and cookies as well.  If you have a tailor or leather worker you had the opportunity to make parts of the Winter Garb set and profit off them.  Now, however,  you find the gold you made at the start of this holiday is all but a trickle of its former self.  Also with Christmas yesterday and continuing family gatherings through New Years many of us find little time to escape from our families long enough to play WoW for any long stretch of time.  So what should I be doing with my limited time on the auction house?  Invest!

Good time to be an Alchemist

Well a good number of people are 85 and many of them have met the ilvl for heroics.  However a lot of these people are finding that they have trouble running said heroics.  These people have turned to getting every edge they can.  Enchants are selling well but everyone and their mother is an enchanter.  While there are a high number of Alchemists as well with mat prices as high as they are many people refuse to make items even if they can make a profit.  Yet there are many consumables people are seeking out to make themselves for effective.

Gone Fishing!

Well sorry for the lack of posts the past few days but I have been a bit under the weather and at the same time have been wracking my brain looking for things to talk about that are not already being shared among all the gold blogs out there.  There is however one item in particular I ran into that after skipping hundreds of times in Tol Barad I can say I will almost never skip again.  The item I am talking about is Sealed Crate.  This item is fished out of Shipwreck Debris and I believe it is only available in Tol Barad.  Now what makes this crate so much better than the rest is the goodies that come out of it.

The Auction House Dark Alley

Everyday I see things on the auction house that many people consider scamming, mean, and just plain wrong.  You know what I'm talking about and maybe you have tried a few of these things in your time.  From the classic posting 1 arrow or bullet for just under the price of an entire stack, to the people intentionally messing with prices on certain items to attempt to cash in later with people who fully trust Auctioneer scans.  Then there are the people who post an item well above normal value and then log onto another toon or account and spam trade for that item at an even higher price.  These are true scams.  Anything in which you actively deceive another player and give them some sort of hope for profit.  Even myself can't say that the allure of easy gold hasn't kept me from attempting a few of these on occasion.

ALERT: Alchemists important information below

The latest hotfix has made Vile of the Sands able to be traded.  Now currently making the mount will cost almost 60k going by the average sell price on wowhead for Truegold bars.  Now that may sound like a astronomical price but unless you want this mount for yourself early on you can easily sell one of these for an enormous profit.

LF Rougue to farm lock boxes!

So as a Scribe I have continued up until this point to make a lot of gold off Glyphs.  I also started making as many other items as I could (All of them listed here).  Due the the limited herbs and volatile life I spent the first few days focusing on Darkmoon Cards as the faire was still in town and I was able to create a total of 4 decks.  Even choosing to use one for myself I still made great profit as I was able to sell the other 3 for 50k a piece.  With the faire gone, however, I decided to start making relics again as the first few I made sold quickly.  There was however one small issue.

PvP sets: Now is the time.

The new Arena and Rated BG season begins on the 14th.  For those who do not PvP this is still exciting news as we can use this to profit with professions.  Blacksmithing, Tailoring, and Leatherworking all can create full sets of PvP gear.  In addition to this Inscription can make a PvP off hand.

Farming Volatiles

So I have been searching around and have yet to find a decent spot to farm any single Volatile.  So it seems gathering professions are going to be able to continue to control this market as well.  This may not seem like such a big deal to some, but there are others out there without skinning, mining, or herbalism who enjoy mindless hours of grinding groups of mobs for items.  Yes there are mobs that drop the volatiles but with the amount different professions take this method would just be too time consuming to get a suitable amount.

Go Mining!

So I did the marathon grind to 85.  I didn't however claim realm first anything.  One thing I did notice however was the scarcity of volatile drops.  While there may still yet be a few great spots to grind these they did not show up during my questing.  Mining by far provides the best way to obtain many of them at the moment.  Also these are supposed to be more equivalent to crystallized instead of eternals and yet each one is going for a lot more at the moment.

Enchanting and the rest: Potential Cataclysm Goldmines.

I skipped over Enchanting before because to much of the professions relies on hardcore players crunching numbers and telling everyone else what enchants they should be getting.  I still am not going to go through the entire profession as this is still true but there are two items I did want to talk about.  Enchanting has been given a toy of sorts in the two new mini pets.  Enchanted Lantern for Horde and Magic Lamp for Alliance.

Tailoring: Potential Cataclysm Goldmines.

Tailoring.  While still similar in nature to previous expansions it has one major change that will prove challenging to anyone wanting to fully utilize all aspects of it to make gold.  I am of course speaking of Dreamcloth.  Unlike before there is only 1 specialty cloth.  Also unlike before this specialty cloth is BoP.  With out utilizing Dream of Destruction, which is the only way to create it without a cool down,  there are only 5 ways to make dream cloth which have a week cooldown associated with them.  This means either spamming Heroics for Chaos orbs as they are BoP as well or limiting yourself to 5 Dreamcloth a week.

Leatherworking: Potential Cataclysm Goldmines.

Leatherworking has some great potential in Cataclysm.  From the Leg enchants, entry level 85 capes, to the Mail and leather Epic chests and belts.  Even the leveling gear has potential to make some good gold off of.  Also if your Leatherworker happens to be a skinner you will find yourself able to make even greater profit while leveling.

Jewelcrafting: Potential Cataclysm Goldmines.

Jewelcrafting, smiler to Enchanting, will find certain gems to remain highly profitable throughout the expansion.  However unlike Enchanting Jewelcrafting offers several other items as well as other ways to make more gold early on in the expansion.  Just like in Wrath Jewelcrafting will require you to do dailies to obtain all the cut you want.  You can use this to your advantage as many people will be looking to grab the main cuts first thinking these will be the most profitable early on.
