postheadericon Warcraft Advanced Gold Guide – Profit Profiles II

Warcraft Item Profit Profile

This chart represents the “ideal” a softly undulating – easy to read sine wave. Price goes up, price comes down.  Read the market for a week or two. Then buy low and sell high.

It’s an ideal, but it’s not that common.

We’ll discuss this then move on to some of the many other types of market movements.

"Bread and Butter" – The graph will show a gradual undulation in price, probably no more than 15 to 20 % over and below the mean price. As long as you know where the mean price is, then this is a low risk item to buy and store to sell.

Check how long the cycle takes however. Many cycles are weekly, but some run over a much longer period (which is one of the reasons why we recommend 8 days between readings).

Early on you will want to work out which ones are more profitable. Your storage tied up with item that will make you 80% profit over a month ? Or items that will make you 18 % over 4 or 5 days.

You see the answer isn’t as simple as calculating the number of times your stock "could" turn over in a month.
Quite obviously, if compounded the 20% over 4 days will yield far higher profits over a month.
The graph on the next page shows how the compounded amount pulls away.

So little and often IS best, but not for everyone. Why ? Because it requires you to act every day.
If you do not log on everyday and take your profits, you will very soon fall behind.

Ok, so what items fall into these categories.

This is not a hard and fast rule, but Epic Weapons and armor fall into the slow category. Rare instance loot also falls into this category. During the summer recess high end loot was pretty common, especially at 2:00am on a Sunday morning when people put the BoE items they did not want on the AH after finishing the high level instance runs.

Likewise more people were farming for mats. Those mats were either competing in the market place as they were, or being crafted into epic items. During the vacation season this will increase. A similar thing might happen at weekends – but sometimes doesn’t. This is because people sometimes just want to have fun at weekends and meet up for instances. Take your readings from your own server to find out what the market does and when.
