We all get into our daily routines. Mine consists of Jewelcrafting, Transmuting, Shuffling (God forbid) among other things. I've posted this before, but it's very easy to get caught up in your daily routine. When you only have enough time to hop on and go through your daily grind, sometimes valuable opportunities get lost in the process.
I get a good amount of e-mail from people looking for ways they can improve there wealth in game. It's easy to dive into profession linking and how valuable it is, but its easy to overlook some of the easiest opportunities. I do a lot of market research. Looking for trends in certain items and when to cash in on my stockpile. You Didn't Forget About Your Stockpile Did you? Knowing when to cash in is with market research and Proper Asset Management I've been watching a lot of the Wrath markets and I've spotted a trend that I think will help a lot of you while you wait for patch 4.2.
I've noticed a rise in price for Saronite Ore. Jumping up from an average of around 20 gold a stack to about 40 gold a stack. I've also noticed a jump in enchanting material prices as well. Infinite dust as well as great cosmic essence have seen a spike in price and a spike in demand. If you have these items in your stockpile, now may be one of the best to liquidate.
I know what you're thinking, "Why?" Well a lot of what is going on is there is a small lull in content and players are pushing that next round of characters up to level 75+. The opportunity here is providing players with with 400+ profession mats as they level up into the newest content. This is where Saronite Ore comes in for Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing. Same holds true for enchanting mats with enchanters. Now that Maelstrom crystals have settled down players are more apt to invest a little bit of money into enchanting. Take advantage of this.
Long story short, don't get so caught up in your daily routine that you miss out on other excellent opportunities. Think outside of the box and you'll be rewarded with big profits.
