|Found this in my mailbox earlier today.|
It's been one of those weeks.
While managing not to send small sums of gold to random players, I've been maintaining a steady profit. In fact, this is probably one of the largest sums I've made over a two week period. It's surely the largest I've posted since I started keeping track for this Chasing the Gold Cap exercise.
Gold amount at last update: 716,084g
Auctioning activity between then and now: high
Current gold amount: 805,255g
+/- Change: 89,171g
There's been a resurgence in glyph sales. I've done well over 10k during these last two weeks, and that's mostly just by posting and leaving them to expire; I rarely scan the AH for undercut glyphs to cancel and repost like I do with gems. Whatever the reason for rise in demand, it's been a nice complement to the killing I've been making with jewelcrafting.
I have been pretty aggressive in the gem market, but I've also acquired some new competition. Normally no big deal, but the issue here is that he's a Real ID friend. Meaning we both get to see when the other logs on, presumably to post auctions. Up to this point, I hadn't decided whether this is a good or bad thing. It's a good thing. He's on his JC as I write this sentence, most definitely undercutting the auctions I posted earlier this morning. So as soon as he logs off of that toon, I'll cancel my auctions and undercut him. As a child of the Aughts might say, it's a Doggy Dogg world.
And there he goes.
Some notes, in no particular order:
- I'm not counting on seeing the 25k+ Vial of the Sands loan money. If I were being less strict about this exercise I'd simply pile it onto the final sum and mark it as an asset. But I chose to loan the gold fully aware of my gold cap chase deadline, which means I assume all risks. Including untimely/no repayment.
- In recalling the last update, I remarked how the glyph market was doing surprisingly well, meaning it's been strong for about a month now.
- The transmog market has been quiet. I'm still occasionally buying up pieces on the cheap.
