Auction House Secrets

Welcome Friend,

I’ve said this many a time, but it needs saying again: the easiest way to make gold in World of Warcraft is to work the Auction House. There’s no grinding, questing or raiding necessary and the trading of even the most expensive of items is independent of level.

What this means is that even a level 5 player, fresh from the starter zone, can trade with the best of champions at level 80. Of course, a level 5 player is unlikely to have amassed the same amount of gold compared to a level 80 - but the opportunity to make money by artful and skillful trading is the same.

Now, Friend, there a number of things that stump many new player when they first encounter the Auction House. They can normally be summed up thus:

What to sell?
What’s it worth?
What quantity to post?
When to post?
How long to post?

Even if players think they have something to sell, it can be very hard to work out it’s true worth i.e. its ‘market value’. To do this, a player would have to scour the Auction House listings - of which there are thousands - and find the most frequently quoted price on any given day (called the median price) and average this over several days for any given item.

If this sounds like hard work, it is!

Fortunately, there’s an addon that can loaded that makes valuing an item a snip. It’s called Auctioneer and can be downloaded free at curse gaming or

Take my advice, Friend, and download this addon today. It will transform your game - if you can learn how to use it. Many players load auctioneer and then wonder what to do with it or never use it to its full potential.

In my new guide, Auction House Secrets, I take you step by step through both the basic and advanced features of Auctioneer and show you how to automate your trading to just 15 mins a playing session. I also show you how to link the main trading strategies of the champions to the addon to max out your auctions.

Winter Veil Hints & Tips

Here's a short video I made, giving you some hints and tips on some of the quests for Winter Veil.

Of course, one of the first quests is to make Gingerbread Cookies for Great Father Winter. This always creates a flurry of activity on the Auction House by last minute shoppers looking to snap up 'Small Eggs' - the main ingredient for the cookies.

I always keep a stack or two in the bank for this occasion and normally make a killing on the Auction House by selling Small Eggs in stacks of 5 (the number needed for the quest).

In the video I show one of the best locations to farm Small Eggs so that you too can earn some extra gold this Winter Veil.

Happy Holidays!

Is This Link Transparent?

Disclosure Statement
Over the five years or so that I've been playing World of Warcraft, I've bought many a guide and manual. Those commercial guides that I've found to enhance my game, or I've reviewed and think fulfill a niche, I sometimes write about in my posts and include an external link to the owner's sales page. This sometimes takes the form of an 'affiliate link'.

What's an Affiliate Link?
For those guides that I'm happy to promote - that is, I think they add some value to the game - I normally become an affiliate. As an affiliate, the product owner pays a commission on those sales made from the traffic I send via the affiliate link. This is how many sites are funded and remain free to you.

How to tell an Affiliate Link?
These links look like any other link, so it's difficult to tell. Unless it's blatantly obvious (the link is in the sidebar or takes the form of a banner), I'll normally tell you if I'm affiliate of the product I'm reviewing. But in case I forget, you should assume that any external link that takes you to a sales page is an affiliate link.

What's the big deal?
This is no big deal. The powers that be want to ensure that any commercial relationship between blog posters and product owners is completely transparent. And this is a good thing. You can then better decide on the merits of any posts.
