Warcraft Gold Profit Over Time


Starting with a working capital of 100 gold, the red shaded area shows how it grows if you can make it grow by 20% a day.
The blue Manhattans show what happens if it grows by 80% every 4 days.
Those of you that know the maths will know that it is a compounding increase that makes the former a quicker growth prospect than the latter.
But your play  style should be a factor as well.

Put simply, if you are a weekend player, or someone who only wants to go to the auction house for some serious trading once or twice a week, then taking long term high profit items is going to be better for you.
If however you log on an play every day – and are quite happy to tinker in the markets every day, then short term lower profits will generally yield better results.

Of course the best of ALL worlds is short term high profit turnover. If you see items like that, and you understand them, then grab them no matter what your main strategy, but they do not come that often.

Once you are of a high enough level you should make this decision. Am I going to log on every day and play the market, or am I looking for a decent – but slightly more modest – long term reward.

Be warned, choosing the short term route, and then not following through on it will cost you a lot of profit potential. It would only take missing a couple of days on this chart for the short term market trader to fall behind the long term trader.

You will find it easier to trade as a long term trader with high end items and vice versa. But there are always those who look to sell tons of harvested loot on a Saturday tea time, but instance look in the early hours of Sunday morning, and sell it back on again to hungry week day players looking to just get out and play on Monday evening. It’s a matter of scale. Buying 250 stacks of Runecloth at 2g a stack and selling it the next day for 4g a stack to someone looking to grind rep is a tactic we have used over and over again.
