New Players – New Opportunities To Make Gold
Lately in World of Warcraft, we have been seeing the influx of new players that got WoW for Christmas. These new players are entering the game and are a new source of income for those of us that are into making gold in WoW. While many of these brand new players can’t afford much from the auction house yet, there are a few areas that you should pay special attention to. It has been proven year after year that the influx of new players creates new opportunities to make gold in WoW. Let’s take a look at a couple of historically accurate markets as well as a brand new market that these new players will help contribute to.
The first major problem that any new player runs into is not having enough bag space. Netherweave Bags have long been the standard for new players. Even after breaking a million gold, I am still crafting and selling those dang Netherweave Bags. Why? They are one of the most consistent items in the game, since they are bought by both alts and new players. With the wave of new players ntering WoW since Christmas, I have seen the sales of NW Bags pick up. They are even selling for close to double what I would normally sell them for. So don’t forget to keep your tailor making those Netherweave Bags.
Poorly Priced Items
With an influx of new players, comes an influx of poorly priced goods on the auction house. New players don’t really have a good grasp on what items are really worth. They just tend to try out the auction house first by selling the items they collect while questing. Instead of selling them to the npc vendors, they may experiment with trying to sell the same items for more on the auction house in WoW. Many times you will find items listed for far more than they are worth. Bottle-neck crafting tems like Perfect Deviate Scales, Large Fangs, Spider Silk, Slimy Murloc Scales, and Heavy Hides are good examples of items that you can find for cheap. So be sure to keep looking for good crafting materials that may be tossed up at too low of a price. Then you can use those in crafting or simply to flip for a profit.
Transmogrification Gear To Flip
Transmogrification is an emerging market, still in its infancy on many servers. Transmogrification, however, is a new market for making gold in WoW. Like the poorly priced crafting materials mentioned above, you will see low level armor tossed up on the auction house for very cheap. If you are able to find some of the gear that is part of a set then you can probably make easy gold flipping the items to a much more appropriate price. I myself have been buying green (uncommon) robes that are unique looking or have a cool pattern on them. I turn around and flip those sames robes to Moggers (short for Transmogrifiers) for 400-450 gold each. Robes are a low entry cost market and a good area to get your feet wet with the emerging Mogging trend. Originally I wasn’t too hyped on the whole Mogging market as a gold making strategy, but I was wrong. The Mogfather (@DEAzeroth on twitter) has opened my eyes to the huge profit potential of playing within the gear markets for transmogrification. And now is a great time to build your stock levels as new players are throwing stuff on the auction houses at incorrect prizes.
