Week 7

Hey guys! Of course I got unbanned from two weeks ago.. but I still have finals so I haven't been logging on or undercutting much for that matter~ But I'll be done in 2 more days so yay me :D

Well.. finals aren't all the reason why I haven't been posting or undercutting... I kinda got myself addicted to Diablo II. Lol.. so.. yeah.. if you happen to play on USWest Ladder or use JSP lemme know xD

Anyhow.. I'm exactly at the 600K mark! Woot woot~~

I noticed that my people still check my blog everyday.. which is pretty cool! Thanks guys XD

*Unless of course it is actually only Egge or Obu spamming the F5 button on my page and brining my hopes up*

Banned... again?

Rofl, so my account has been banned.... AGAIN! It's only been 5 days since the last time this happened, and they have decided to close my account permanently again =_=

Seriously.. what the shit is up with the customer service? I reported a gold farmer like a week ago and all I get is a totally irrelevant ticket response telling me the proper way to deal with phishing emails. Instead of banning the gold farmer they ban me twice in a row? Freaking RAGE (okay I lied, I'm not actually that mad for some reason).

Lets hope I don't meet up with some jack ass GM this time.

[Saronite Ore]

Today's post will focus on the raw material Saronite Ore. There are many, many things that you can do with Saronite Ore depending on what professions you have. Of course, having multiple professions will work to your advantage. The main rule of thumb for Saronite Ore is to buy ALL stacks that are priced under 12g 50s. Since you can convert a stack of Saronite Ore into ten Saronite Bars. Each Saronite Bar can be sold to the vendor for 1g 25s.


As mentioned above, if you can find Saronite Ore for less than 12g 50s a stack, buy it out and turn them all into bars and vendor them.


Craft Eternal Belt Buckles, these will be your best sellers. You can also craft the Savage Saronite Rare PVP Set or the Ornate Saronite Rare PVP Set. In addition, there is [Saronite Bulwark], [Titanium Weapon Chain] and [Titanium Shield Spike]. Also, don't forget about the titansteel epics!


The main option here would be [Heartseeker Scope] I believe. I could be wrong so let me know if you find something else worth crafting.


Prospecting ore as a JC can be very profitable. To check if prospecting is worth it, use this formula that I stole from Wowhead's comment section for Saronite Ore.

5 Saronite Ore == 0.24*(MT+SR+SS+FE+AG+TO)/6 + 1.08*(SC+DJ+HC+Ch+SuC+Bl)/6

SR=Scarlet Ruby; MT=Monarch Topaz; AG=Autumn's Glow; FE=Forest Emerald; SS=Sky Sapphire; TO=Twilight Opal; SC=Shadow Crystal; DJ=Dark Jade; HC=Huge Citrine; Ch=Chalcedony; SuC=Sun Crystal; Bl=Bloodstone

If the left side is greater than right side, dont bother prospecting.
If the right side is greater than the left side, prospecting is profitable!

Usually, prospecting is worth it, but just in case your server is a bit different you should put it into the formula to check.

Remember, all blue quality gems are worth a minimum of 4g 50s (vendor value after being cut), and all green quality gems are worth a minimum of 50s (vendor value after being cut).

So what to do with all the blue quality gems? Cut them and sell on AH! To help you get started on which cuts to buy first, you may want to check out my post on Jewelcrafting Cuts found here.

There are more options for what to do with the green quality gems.

0. Create Icy Prisms.

1. Cut and sell them on the AH. I only bother doing this with the Bloodstones though, since the other ones have fairly cheap rare quality versions. I usually get around

2. Cut and Vendor.

3. Craft and AH. You can sell [Bloodstone Band], [Sun Rock Ring], [Crystal Citrine Necklace], [Crystal Chalcedony Amulet], [Dark Jade Focusing Lens], [Shadow Crystal Focusing Lens] and [Shadow Jade Focusing Lens]. I don't sell any of these myself, since the demand is pretty low. However, if you can somehow advertise the focusing lens for social use, it could be a good seller.

4. Craft and Vendor. You can craft [Bloodstone Band], [Sun Rock Ring], [Crystal Citrine Necklace], [Crystal Chalcedony Amulet]. Each of these are worth 3g 14s to a vendor. It takes 5 seconds to craft each, so use this following formula to figure out approximately how much you gain per hour.

Total Profit Per Hour = 3.14 - (Green Gem + (Eternal Earth/5)) * 720

5. Craft and DE. Similar to craft and vendor, except if you have Enchanting you can DE the rings instead. On my server this is actually less profitable than the vendor route.

Total DE Profit = 0.75(2*Infinite Dust) + 0.22(1.5*Lesser Cosmic Essence) + 0.03(Small Dream Shard)

*Note: I'm actually a little unsure of the formula above... but I think it is right*


If you have an Alchemist (or better yet, a Transmutation Master), you can create [Earthsiege Diamonds] and [Skyflare Diamonds]. Since I don't have a X-mute master, what I usually do is I tip a transmutation master according to how many procs he gets.

I think thats pretty much it. Feel free to leave a comment on how your sales go!

Week 4

Hey guys! Sorry for the late post... I just got my account back today! I guess its pretty fast for Blizzard! After getting banned, I promptly sent them an email declaring my innocence

My account has been banned, because I apparently, am involved with "Abuse of the Economy". I know that I have a large amount of gold on my account (roughly 500K). However, if you check my logs, my gold is mostly outbound, and when it does go out, it goes into buying items. I earn all my gold from the Auction House. I have not sold gold to anyone. How can I get my account back? If you insist on banning me, can you at least show me more valid proof? For example, which characters I have traded a large amount of gold to without receiving items of equal worth. I have spent more than enough money on World of Warcraft, and to be banned like this makes me very frustrated. Thank you for your time.

This is what I got back from them:


Recently, your account was actioned as a result of our efforts to protect the World of Warcraft environment from exploitative behavior. As part of these efforts, we recently closed some accounts that appeared to be engaging in exploitative activities. it is our goal is to protect our players from such activities whenever possible.

After further review, access to this account been restored and all actions removed.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and encourage you to contact us with any further questions or concerns you may have. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

My best guess is that I was banned because one of my alts had joined a gold farmers guild... so when the GMs pulled out the ban hammer on that particular group, they automatically banned me also.

BTW.. gold farmers are getting out of hand lately! I've played for a while but I've never seen anything as bizarre as this!

Anyways, on to the actual progress of Week 4. After prospecting a couple hundred stacks of Saronite Ore I bought... Here is what my current bank tabs look like:

That brings my total gold count to 538,026g, which is actually a great week since I bought my self a couple of things as a treat. I picked up a [Hyacinth Macaw] for 9K... since it is considered one of the rarest pets in the game, I simply couldn't resist. I also bought 8 Primordial Saronites to craft some BOE gear. I have yet to decide what I am going to do with all the green quality gems... since crafting rings and DEing them is much less profitable now.

Anyways.. I know I've been updating a lot of personal stuff lately, but once I become less busy in real life I will make more posts on gold making tips!
