Curious Finds with Inscription



It's amazing what you find out while looking at your sales. By looking at my sales history from inscription I can tell what characters are being leveled the most on my realm. It's odd but you can see which class glyphs you sell the most and the ones that you sell the least.


On my realm there must be a ton of players leveling warlocks because glyphs for that class are my biggest seller. I find sales for death knights and warriors to be high as well. I think that the death knight sales are fairly obvious since they are so easy to level up. On the other side of the spectrum I see mage, shaman, and hunter glyphs sold the least.

I began thinking about how I could use this data or if I could further analyse it. How could this data help me? Could I apply this data to focus on other professions? I think that this explained to me why I sold more Iron-Bound Tomes than Faces of Doom off hands. Could there be things that might be more in demand for a blacksmith than usual at this time?

Questions for Comments
I wanted to put this in your minds and see what you all thought. What do you infer from this data? Would you think about crafting more of a certain item based of this information?

i'm wondering how i can make a proper export with an addon like beancounter giving me totals of the glyphs sold per day per class for like a total of the last 30 days. This way you can start analysing the data properly.

I would like to know what format the data is held in, It would be nice if it was tab or comma delimited. I'm going to do some research and see how it is stored.

Shamaenei said...

If it's really comma seperated i'll go a step further and make my own program/site for it. I'll make a daily export and store everything in a sql database. I'll let you know when i know more.

This is probably off topic buuut...are you ever going to make more youtube videos. I enjoyed watching the single one you have and hoping for more ;P

NakedJay said...

@ Besaid,
I am planning on making more videos, possibly a couple within these next two weeks. I have been waiting for the hell period to calm down at my work which things are starting to wind down. So stay tuned =]

How about this: http://www.mmometrics.org/aucdb2/ ?

@ Anon,
That site is for a current auction house scan which I will have a post about that on Thursday. Tomorrow I will have a post about exporting beancounter data.

My mistake, was thinking of the wrong tool.

Looks like you've already got something in mind though :)

About that i just found out how to use the Beancounter Export xlsm file from curse to put stuff into a SQL database. It'll take me a couple of days to program this out and get my first test ready. :D

NakedJay said...

@ Shamaenei,
Yup! That's what I found too. Tomorrow's post is going to be about that export. I'll look forward to seeing your site!

I never even thought about checking wich glyphs sold the most. I always just restocked to make sure i have 5 of good glyphs and 3 or less of crap ones. Now that I think of it DK glyphs sell out really fast...
