These “Golden Goal” posts is a journal-like post where I put in input on how I go about farming gold and making it at the Auction House. A lot of gold guides / Auction House guides tell you the golden rule of winning at the auction house is to buy low and sell high. This is the golden rule that I’ve tried and failed at numerous times. An example of this would be the time I tried to “control” the gem market during the late Wrath era. After buying out the epic yellow gem market I then tried to flip them and sell them for my profit. That is the day I learned my server had a Gem Baron. Upon further research I learned that he moved (+/-) 5000 gems a week. Long story short, I ended up vendoring a stack of those gems at the release of Cataclysm.
So, I’m at it again, the gold gathering game. This time I’ve set my sights upon the Mekgineer’s Chopper. This is the alliance version of the Mechano-Hog. It requires 12,500g just for the vendor items sold. In these posts I’ll keep you, the readers, updated on some of my plots, plans, and get rich quick schemes that I may have to achieve my golden goal. I hope that some of you have some input to give me to help me avoid completely losing all my gold to stupid schemes and back-alley transactions. If you haven’t already learned, I suck at the whole high risk, high reward game. So here’s to you my fellow readers and my future gold guides. Don’t let me go bankrupt.
