for the past two months i have been focusing on achieving a goal i have wanted for a long time now, which is reaching the gold cap on one character.
i started trying to achieve this goal around the time of firelands patch, but had to stop a few weeks after because i'm a student and i had to take a break.
i started this expansion with over 300k gold on my bank alt (i used to shuffle obsidium ore in cata) and i began shuffling again two weeks after mop had started.
shuffling has been pretty amazing this expansion, in cata we used to make profit mostly from the resulting enchanting materials, but prospecting Ghost Iron Ore gave us a lot bigger market possibilities. i have almost reached my goal now (at 886k atm and counting). the ride up to my first million has been really smooth apart from some annoying moments when a specific person started destroying the meta gem market for no apparent reason (this thread is not for discussing this^^). i was lucky to snap my last 2000 stacks of ore 1 day before 5.1 went live (meaning it was fairly cheaper than the current prices).
i wanted to share the results of this last shuffle with a friend of mine (he is fairly new to this), so i made those screenshots to give him an idea of what he should expect if he wants to prospect this amount of ore one day. so now i would like to share this info with this board, enjoy
TL'DR: prospecting 2000 stacks of ore, trying to reach my first million, some screenshots of the process:
screenshot #1: first step of a shuffle is prospecting the ore (duh^^), the most important gems are purple, orange and green so this screenshot tells how many you should expect from 2000stacks.
screenshot #2: after taking the gems to my Trasmute master i got 204 meta gems and still got few spares (i decided to stop making metas for no reason, and keep some colored gems to sell separately), the serpent's eye i use for all kinds of 450ilvl necks/rings.
screenshot #3: shows how many "green" quality gems i got out of the prospect. i forgot to take a screenshot of my TSM crafting module while crafting ALL kinds of superior quality gems, rings, necks and of course meta gems (to show TSM estimated profit and stuff).
screenshot #4: while crafting the disenchantables
screenshot #5: we jump here to the step where i'm done disenchanting all the green quality necks/rings, i decided to make around 40scrolls of each kind. Estimated Total mat costs/total profit is calculated from today's prices on the ah (i did a scan this morning).
screenshot #6: leftovers
screenshot #7,8 and 9: moved everything to my bank alt which has its own guild with 3tabs (note that i have some tailoring/BS pvp items and buckles here, everything else is a result of the shuffle).
screenshot #10: having a heart attack when i noticed that the guy who usually fucks the prices of meta gems on my server has just went offline, i was afraid he nuked the prices xD
screenshot #11: posting first patch, and right now i'm sitting at home undercutting nonstop to finish my stash fast enough
ore costed around 27ish gold per stack also i payed around 4500G for the jewelcrafter's settings.
total spent roughly 58500G.
ill update this post with the results soon
thanks for reading!
