Weekly Update 9-1

Well it's that time of the week when I, Nakedjay, gives you a detailed recap of my gold making adventures for the last week. The weekly update was delayed a day to get the blogging carnival post in. It will return to it's normal slot next Tuesday.

Real Life
Sat on my ass and drank heavily with my girlfriend this weekend. Was at her pool pretty much the whole weekend which was very relaxing. I've been on the phone the last couple of days trying to talk to an executive at HP because they failed on a 130K project at my work. It's amazing that the biggest computer company in the world is so disorganized and filled with hateful people that don't want to help you. Guess that's what happens when a company gets big.

WoW Life
Gem markets crashed...again...except this one is much worse and probably will not recover till expansion. Profit margins are dropping to 10 to 20 gold. Some cuts are not even profitable, it's pathetic. The competition is buying up supply just praying to make a 5g profit. Heck I'll stick to my netherweave bags if it comes down to that.

I blew through a good portion of my stockpile so I am going to try and rebuild this week. I think I went through a matter of 20k within 3 evenings. There seems to be heavier competition in the glyph markets this last week but I'm still saved by my late night postings which are still making me a killing.

I have been pulling a wider profit margin of late with netherweave bags as prices on cloth have dropped and demand has went through the roof.

I'm not sure but I think I hate enchanting. It's probably because of two auction house campers on my realm so I just don't invest as much time on it. It seems like these two guys are online 24/7 and they undercut me within 3 to 5 minutes. To test it out I sat there and camped the auction house for one hour while they were online. In that time I was undercut 7 times by these two players but I was able to sell two enchanting scrolls I think by luck in between the undercuts. It's frustrating but if they piss me off enough I'm going to invest heavily in enchanting markets and force them out with heavy undercutting. I can always use the jewelcrafting shuffle to get dirt cheap enchanting mats to beat them. We'll see where this leads.

Here's the Total Sales,
Jewelcrafting - 20,500g
Inscription - 5,400g
Enchanting - 750g
Tailoring - 1,400g
Alchemy - 700g

Total Liquid - 91,885
Total Invested - 23,500
Total Assets - 115,385

An impressive weak for me, I pulled this off only playing 3 evenings! Some time soon I will have a week, probably during the winter, where I will pull off some enormous numbers because I will be playing every evening. Well I am definitely smelling blood now being about 8k away from 100k, that will be an impressive goal for me to have finally reached. I should have no problem hitting that by next week.

Thanks for checking in!
