Gold making tip

Greedy Goblin put a post up about the LFG tool. Tonight, I decided to try it out. I made a macro:

/2 Tired of long ques? 3000 Gear Score tank here. I’ll group and tank the random for a small fee. PST for details.

/1 Tired of long ques? 3000 Gear Score tank here. I’ll group and tank the random for a small fee. PST for details.

Went to the Jewelcrafting trainer in Dalaran. Picked up the daily. Hit the macro 1 time. Not more than 10 seconds later a guy sent me a tell, asking “what is the fee?” 50G I replied. He said “I’ll take 2 randoms” We grouped got UK then DTK. He paid 100 G before the first run started. After the runs we went our separate ways.

Dropped group, porting back to Dalaran. Hit the macro again, started flying to Howling Fjord for a proto-drake bone and got another tell. Another random was bought. All in all, I made 150 gold from fees, got a few pieces of frostweave, 2 frozen orbs which go for 8-15G a piece on my server, a blue shard and finished my JC daily in less than 1 hour.

Awesome tip Gevlon, thanks…

Edit: I didn’t even consider the ~15 badges I got. That’ll buy a crusader orb which goes for around 200G on my server. Considering the average heroic takes around 15 minutes, that puts this new business at over 600 gold per hour. I bet I would have none stop customers on a Saturday also.

Edit2: Ok, because I was tired or something…the GPH is off. #1 a crusader orb cost 15 badges not 10. #2 realistically you’ll only be able to do heroics per hour. That puts the GPH at over 350, still not bad.
