    Well i bought 250 in the end milled it with my macro (dont do botting) afked while it all turned to ink (40 odd minutes at least :S) sold stuff for 9k and put other stuff on AH for 7k so for 6k worth of mats i made 15-16k so its not a get rich quick scheme but its certainly not a loss for basically afking.

    Just did the maths for Draenor EU, works out around 1.6k per hour (horrible server economy as we're plagued by high pop)

    If that counts as worth your time, go for it, but I would seriously encourage you to simply google around, you can make that kind of gold quite easily in 10 minutes these days. And I was generous with the time required.

    I miss the old days where i could just use gamehack to get infinite everything in games, then again those were the days when you could play your games offline.

    true but if you use something like enchantrix it helps, no need to mouse over, just click yes each time it pops, I just leave my mouse on yes and click it every few secs while i watch a movie or something and before i know it, its done, but im doing this x5 toons in the one go while most are using 1 toon, 1 account.


    or a mix of prospecting and milling at same time on all screens with 1 press

    Thanks for the tip, managed to buy a tonne of herbs at 20g a stack and make a tidy profit doing this. Thats not counting the DMCs I got from it too.

    Since then, all the stacks seem to be at about 40g a stack

    I did this for a while then stopped. It just encourages players to go out and bot. I was receiving 100+ stacks a day from the same people. Was good money though for the Starlight Inks, they sold all month round too not just during DMF.

    Alliance aeire peak eu just saw 800 stacks going for 1.04g I bought 600 yesterday at 1.10. Tbh I didnt buy loads this morning because i burnt myself out milling herbs yetserday. All herbs on the ah are under 1.25g except for fools cap. I even picked up 250 golden lotus at 10g each so i made a load of flasks and made a big profit on those too.

    Did this for a couple of days untill i ran out of scrolls, made 27k in total im pretty much just selling starlight inks cheap in bulk to make cash now..roll on DMF so ican get some trinkets!
    Bots flooding ah on my realm with cheap herbs helps, Constantly reporting them as bots but nothing ever seems to be done about it

    It's strange how something like this hits the web and soon goes viral. I read this thread last night but had to go spinning and gave it a shot when i got back. I had bucket loads of herbs from various toons so used them up and make a quick 1k or so plus Starlights.

    But to test it out proper I bought 1 stack of Silkweed and then 4 stacks. Ran the numbers. On 1 stack at 24g 75s I turned a small profit of 75g or so plus had a couple of Starlights. Bought 4 stacks and made a profit of 250g or so plus half a dozen Starlights. The method works but you really need to ask yourself is it worth your personal time. Anything more than 25g and I don't think so.

    Funny Draykorinee, I'm on AP also, whose your toon? I bought up all the Silkweed and remaining Descrated herbs last night. I checked today and Tea Leaf was 30g but most other herbs 60g plus. I guess the key is in timing and buying in bulk.

    I bet quite a few folks made a tidy sum on this before it became public knowledge. Much like most of these deals, i.e. de'ing alchemy trinkets into sha crystals.

    Toons are draykorini and draykorona (EU AP). The weekend is the key here, weekdays prices go up weekends they go down its how its been ever since i played the auction house. I think that there is a point where even though its profitable the time and effort is not worth the small reward. When I saw 800 stacks for 1g a herb I knew that it would be worth it.
    Ultimately 18.75/3 is 6.25 so each ink is 6.25 therefore each herb is worth 3.2g Its really up to the person if they think its worth doing or not there are less time consuming ways to earn money, I agree I wont pay anymore than 25g a stack for this trick. If I could get a graph printout of prices on herbs it would be very clearly showing that saturday evening through to sunday night are great times to bag bargains. People must farm (bot) during the week and shift them at the weekend or something. Im still stuck with about 20 random dmf cards that i cant make a set and arent really shifting but otherwise loads of profit.
