    Re: To all the JCers that stacked up on titanium ore pre 3.2.....

    In preparation for the 3.2 patch I spent one month buying up ore from everyone/everywhere/everyday.

    Purchased 700 +/- stacks for 105g each +/- total = 73,500g
    Prospected 500 stacks using all the powder for tokens -> epic designs which made 90,000g +/- (Keep in mind I used the powders so this number would have been higher)
    Sold 200 stacks for 225-250g +/- total = 45,000g-50,000g +/-

    Walked away with rougly 66,500g +/-

    Stocked up honour useing stonekeeper shards and the for great honour/ daily pvp. This and emblems of heroism (remember them? how retro!) means that no gems where purchased.

    Friend of mine got his mechanohog by just selling +20str gems when they where in the 350g region- apparently they when like hot cakes (or so his gleeful voice over vent told us) right now the gem market has stabilised and is if anything dropping- we had our first epic (uncut) gems under 100g recently! eye of zul, but it sets a precedent...

    but cut sell seems to be te way to go though, you can make an easy 70+g if you do it right...still people always need belt buckles, right XD

    Well done.

    I've heard that the greatest path to gold from this last patch (and given that hindsight was and always will be 20/20) was to just buy stacks of Titanium Ore before the patch and resell them after the patch landed.

    On my server people we're buying stacks of Titanium ore for around 150g/stack and selling the same stack for 300-400g. Straight up with no twists.
    The less you know, the more you believe.


    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hate, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    Yeah, once I had the designs I needed, I dumped the rest of the ore (^_-).

    I've found though that this patch is pretty crazy for making gold with all kinds of things^^.

    Re: To all the JCers that stacked up on titanium ore pre 3.2.....

    hi,

    i had 4000 ores - 200 Stacks - 28k Gold invest (~140 g/st)

    I sold no stack under 380 g in two month = 76 k - 28k = 48k Profit

    I got JC but to go in gems was to much stress and i don´t believe u can make real profit if you buy the ores for 380 g per stack...

    With some other things i made little more money since 3.2...i had 59k on patchday, today i am 50k over individual cap. I believe

    they will raise the goldcap with 4.0.

    I have done the same. I just buy the uncut gems off the AH and cut them resell them. No risk, and easy money.

    Why people are still prospecting Titanium (unles you are mining it yourself) is beyond reasoning. I have a miner and I did stock up on Titanium ore, however after prospecting like 3 stacks I quickly realized that this is a total loss for me at this rate and I instead put my ore on the AH which promptly sold for 300g.

    I did the math and it seems like you would need amazing luck just to break even when it comes to prospecting titanium.

    I put about 9k gold into ore within the first few days of it being posted on mmo
    Got like 5 mails full of ore and made a massive killing on patch day and have continued to make a killing all the way up to now.
    Its a nice take back to TBC when you could trade spam and actually make more money than dailys, with near enough every epic gem pattern going at 20g a cut on patch day, 10g a cut now, and near every enchant recipie at 10g, I can sit in Org on off nights and make upwards of 1k an hour

    Re: To all the JCers that stacked up on titanium ore pre 3.2.....

    Had 3 guild tabs full of Titanium Ore, prospected it all and got almost 4 full stacks of each color epic gem, and a milion others ><
    Remember I earned bit over 60k the first week and well dno what total where but profitt bigtime yeah

    Also used most of the powder to get them new shiny patterns and sold a few dust for 50g each after a few weeks

    Re: To all the JCers that stacked up on titanium ore pre 3.2.....

    I had about 60-70 stacks of ore saved up for patch day.

    I didn't make any money because I didn't sell anything, but I've managed to keep myself completely stocked in epic gems for my main, his offspec, and my alts mainspec probably until Icecrown.

    In retrospect I could have made tons by just reselling the ore but that's offset by the amount I've saved on epic gems so far.
