It was a slow evening on Friday so I thought I'd give my self something to do. At around 7pm I bought up 25 stacks of Elementium Ore to prospect. The stacks cost me 85g each so that was 2,125g invested in the ores. My plan to was to experiment and see how much I could make out of these 25 stacks upto 0:01 on Sunday. Not exactly 24 Hours but with sleeping inbetween I thought I would cut myself some slack.
- 525 Jewelcrafter
- 525 Alchemist
- 15 x Alicite
- 20 x Zephyrite
- 16 x Jasper
- 19 x Hessonite
- 12 x Carnelian
- 20 x Nightstone
- 1 x Inferno Ruby
- 3 x Ocean Sapphire
- 4 x Demonseye
- 6 x Dream Emerald
- 1 x Amberjewel
- 7 x Ember Topaz
Quite a nice haul, first thing was to send 12 of each common gem to my Alchemist for Transmute: Shadowspirit Diamond this gave me 8 x Shadowspirit Diamonds.
My available Jewelcrafting cuts at the moment are:
- Etched Demonseye
- Puissant Dream Emerald
- Resplendent Ember Topaz
- Willful Ember Topaz
- Lucent Ember Topaz
- Quick Amberjewel
- Destructive Shadowspirit Diamond
- Eternal Shadowspirit Diamond
- Enigmatic Shadowspirit Diamond
Obviously I wanted to craft some meta gems, Destructive meta gem sells for around 400g at the moment on my server and the Eternal one for 300g or so. I crafted a few Destructive metas and 1 x Enigmatic meta to test the market. I listed them one at a time as I was doing a bit of AH camping.
I also cut the other rare gems depending on the market price and what was selling. Here's what sold in this period between 7pm Friday and 0:01 Sunday, ca. 24 hours later.
- 6 x Destructive Shadowspirit Diamond - 2,776g
- 1 x Uncut Inferno Ruby - 145g
- 2 x Uncut Ocean Sapphire - 120g
- 6 x Puissant Dream Emerald - 603g
- 2 x Etched Demonseye - 383g
- 1 x Quick Amberjewel - 50g
- 5 x Willful Ember Topaz - 746g
- 2 x Resplendent Ember Topaz - 325g
- 8 x Zephyrite - 361g
- 1 x Hessonite - 19g
- 8 x Nightstone - 235g
- 4 x Jasper - 60g
- 3 x Alicite - 100g
- Grand Total - 5,923g
Admittedly I did camp the AH but not for the entire 24 hours. Most of the time for about an hour or so and then I would run a dungeon or do Tol Barad dailies. I was also offline doing the usual family stuff for most of the afternoon. This is just to stress that you dont need to be on 24/7 to do this.
The gems that are leftover were:
- 1 x Destructive Shadowspirit Diamond
- 1 x Enigmatic Shadowspirit Diamond
- 2 x Etched Demonseye
- 6 x Hessonite
- 1 x Ocean Sapphire
I have absolutely no doubt that these will also sell bringing the total up to around 7,000g, showing that aslong as your willing and have the patience, the Auction House is by far and away the best gold maker out there.
For a look at a similar Obsiduim Ore project check out Nev's post Obsidium Ore & Prospecting - sort of an experiment!
I hope that informative for some of you new guys who are looking for way to invest and profit on your current gold stock.
