Here we are at the end of the week. Or at least the end of the week that anyone actually cares about. You know Friday? As always here in Gauss Land Friday means it is time for the Reader Post. The post of the week where you send in your submissions for a post to be featured on here. This week I went with Commiesawn take on the Auction House.
The Auction House. I know you used to live there. Your legend of Gold beyond the average players dreams is something which will never be forgotten. My story though is inspired because you were the one which got me playing the auction house in the first place. Why you ask? Well it was back when you had your Shard Empire. I was one of the people who helped you promote your shop. I thought it was amazing how one person could cause so much drama because of his ability to create a monopoly.
One night I did the math and figured out you were making 10k+ a day just by selling these shards. Absolutely no one could do anything about it. It was masterful really. Here I was accepting your random gold to have me walk around Orgrimmar telling people about your shards. It was during that time when I actually asked you for advice on how to make gold. You did give me the tip of choosing something everyone needs. You explained how shards although hard to control because of volume was a prime example. You told me to start small and build reserves of gold.
You suggested things like bags, and I totally ignored everything else you said just because you said bags first. I did just that and started small and worked my way up in type. Now I was not making nearly the amount you were but withing a couple weeks I had my flying mount at 280%. I kept up with it and started flowing in gold just like you said. I soon got to the point where gold didn't matter anymore because I had so much of it.
So what can I say. You gave me the inspiration and the guidance to create my own gold empire. Now obviously it wasn't your shard empire, but it was something I was proud of and it really came from nothing. So I just wanted to say thanks, and come back and trade me so I can see how much gold you actually have.
Thanks Commiesawn for the nice words. It is true though just find something which everyone needs and you will have no problem selling it. You don't have to control a market you just have to understand how they work. Enjoy your weekend everyone and don't forget to see what Safiree has to say tomorrow
