PGB Week 1

Project Golden Bull Entry 1.2 Image

Project Golden Bull (or PGB) began on May 5th, 2016. The main purpose of PGB is to force myself to learn how to make gold on a new server and without my team of alts who are able to craft everything. Every week I post an update on my progress.

Week 1 Accounting Summary

Project Golden Bull Entry 1

Week 1 Progress

Level: 53

Gold: 2,609g

Estimated Auction Value: 3,875g

Estimated Net Worth: 7,294g

Every player with any character of any level has the potential to make gold, even without the use of professions or farming.

I did cheat a little bit. I caged and sell a Firewing for a little over 300g on my second day on the server so that I could get things moving a little more quickly. Nothing major, and nothing compared to what people will earn in the course of leveling up, but I wanted to get things started.

So I started with different cloth from past expansions. Windwool Cloth, Embersilk Cloth and Linen Cloth. They don’t bring in much but every little bit helps, especially at this point.

I also bought variety of profession items that I could list at a good profit. Items like a Blacksmith Hammer and limited supply items such as a Gyrochronatom were my objectives. They don’t cost much and can be sold for a nice profit margin.

And then I got really lucky. I won a roll on Gloves of the Fang while running through Wailing Caverns and sold it in very quickly. This made my early sale of the Firewing pet a little pointless but I didn’t mind. Those gloves gave me an enormous leap fowards.

I have kept my eyes open for opportunities to flip any of the WoD crafting materials. It seems that I am being beaten almost every time, I can’t seem to find any listed low enough to be worth buying.

The economy here on Hakkar is definitely much different than Illidan. I will have to learn more ways to make gold and not rely on crafting. My first impression is that my best option is to continue flipping crafting materials as best I can and try to start investing in more valuable things.

Overall I’m happy with my progress so far. Things should only become better as I gain more gold that I can invest into things. I will have to be very careful until that point.
