I need your help.
As I announced a post or two ago, I want to focus on a new series which I intend on then posting under a new section titled “Goblin University”, which will highlight some discussions about some of the foundational AH strategies we goblins often employ on our quest for “moar gold”.
After putting some thought into how to best approach this, I decided to start from the beginning, by laying some groundwork. While some of us might already be in a position to jump right in and tackle these more advanced strategies, it would only be fair to allow everyone the opportunity to participate. You have to take econ 101 before you can handle the juicy stuff, right?
So, here’s the plan: outline a framework for acquiring a base amount of gold in order to then move on to the advanced topics. I would like to cover the following “courses”:
- Your first 1000g
- 1000 – 5000g
- 5000 – 10k
- 10k – 50k
At 50k, there likely won’t be too many opportunities someone wouldn’t be able to take advantage of, so I think at that point, we will move on to the good stuff.
So, where do you Gold Bloggers come in? Well, I thought it might be kind of cool to get some different perspectives from some different people. So, if you have already written a blog post that meets the criteria I will list in a sec, send me the link and I will include it. If not, get writing. If you don’t currently have a blog but do have an idea you would like to have included, send it to me in an email/as an attachment and I will feature it as a guest post. I am also planning on going through some of the consortium guides and contest entries and will link any that I find that meet our criteria.
Criteria for first 1000g
- Be specific. “go do a vendor run of stormwind” isn’t helpful. Tell us the names of the vendors, what item(s) you purchased and what an appropriate selling price would be for them. Same goes for “farm outlands”.
- Strategies must be accessible to any level 20 character with no more than 50g.
- Any analysis or insight into how/why this particular strategy works really well for you is highly encouraged. The idea isn’t to compile a list for new goblins to just copy/paste, but to help them see what sort of a mentality or strategy you need to have to get off the ground.
If you have any questions, let me know. I would like to put up a post by the end of next week, so if you can submit anything to my by Thursday, that would be greatly appreciated.
Also, in case anyone was wondering, my plan is to elaborate on my infamous “Thunder Bluff vendor run” that I’ve hinted at a few times as the way I got off the ground when I switched over to Zuluhed. I might have to go do it again, as I don’t think I remember exactly what I grabbed back then.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
