Last week, I posted about my favourite profession addons so when I was mulling over ideas for this week, I thought I should let you know about a little addon that I love & use regularly. It’s called RecipeProfit for Gathermate2 & if you use Gathermate already then you just download the extra bit. I use Gatherer so I had to download Gathermate & RecipeProfit but I haven’t found that they clash at all.
This little addon adds pink circles to your minimap whenever you are in range of a vendor that sells recipes/plans/patterns etc. If you hover your mouse over the pink circle, it will give you a tooltip, telling you the NPC’s name & what recipes they sell.
So why do I love this addon so much? Well, not only am I a goldmaker, I’m also an alt addict so I almost always have alts out & about questing in random zones across Azeroth. I do have a pretty good memory but this addon allows me to find those out of the way vendors & the recipes they sell usually sell for some pretty good prices on the AH.
A quick run around the Great Forge centre of Ironforge with this addon active will astound you – there are so many vendor bought recipes there! For some starter cash or just for your banker to make a quick shopping dash, it’s perfect. If you are out & about doing some archeology, chasing Elders or putting out bonfires for the seasonal achievements, you will be able to pick up those random, awkward to get to recipes too.
Unfortunately I lost my MySales data a while ago so I can’t tell you which of the recipes I have sold most of. I do know that the Tuxedo Jacket, Shirt & Pants patterns sell well on my server although strangely the Dress Shoes don’t seem to. Another example is the Recipe: Philosopher’s Stone, cost 80 silvers & I sold one just this week for 94 gold!
I’m not suggesting you go travelling just to get these recipes to sell but rather look at them as additional money making oppotunites when that little pink circle pops up on your mini map.
