Dominate The Auction House In World of Warcraft

Jul 26, 2008
I rarely used any consumables; I never bought any upgrades in the Auction House. This was what I was like when I rolled my first toon more than three years ago.

Three years later, I still see many new players struggling to make much WoW gold. I want to share a few tips that will help you guys get started.

From my first time visiting a major city, I drooled over the items on Auction House. I could tell from that moment that gold could be made from it. The idea is simple, everyone knows you buy low and sell high.

There was one predicament though, I gambled on the items that I purchased. I never knew if a profit could be made from any of the items that I bought. Surprisingly, I was still making a profit.

What I did to save time was I made a level 1 alt who basically sat in Stormwind. Before and after every play session, I would logon to this alt and spend around 5-10 minutes checking out the Auction House.

As time went by, I became more accustomed to the Auction House. Profits began to pour in at a faster rate. I managed to turn a measly 60 silver into 150 gold by the time my main character hit level 40.

To avoid high deposit fees, I avoided purchasing armor and weapons on the Auction House.

Enchanting mats were my main target as they don't have any deposit fee, funny at the time I didn't even know what enchanting mats were, I just knew I could make a fortune off of them.

When addons such as the Auctioneer came out, I was overjoyed; it was a huge time saver as it sorts out potentially profitable items.

I bought a lot of items that never ended up selling. One case that I still remember til this day was the purchase of Mass of McGowan (1 year pre-BC). I remember listing this item more than 10 times and it just wouldn't sale, I just gave up eventually because the deposit fee was killing me.

There are always risks involved when bidding in the Auction House, but in order to make the big profits, there will always be some risk.
