Upgraded Quest Items
There are some items that have gone up in value a lot due to the patches and the Burning Crusade expansion pack coming out. So, here is a list of some of the items that are used for different quests that are now worth a lot more money on the AH:
Delicate Arcanite Converter (made with Arcanite, Thorium, Arcane Crystal – which will all go way up in price too!)
Greater Eternal Essence
Dark Iron Bar
Goblin Rocket Fuel
Large Brilliant Shards
Cured Rugged Hide
Flask of Supreme Power
Selling Recipes on the AH
One of the best ways to make a good turn over on the AH is to find some of the rare recipes and sell them on the AH. While most of the high level players will have already had this recipe or already know where to find it, it is mostly the lower level and noob players that will scoop them up when you post them on the AH. It doesn’t take much to find the recipes in the game, only a little time and effort, but some players are too lazy or would just rather spend the money to purchase it on the AH. So, you can take advantage of this and make some gold!
The easiest way to get these recipes on the AH without having to travel all over the continents, is to find the vendors who sell the harder to find recipes, buy all that they have, and then mail them to one of your lower level characters who is by a mail box and AH. But, when you post them, only post them one at a time, or you won’t sell them for the prices that you want. Multiple copies will only drive the price down.
