AH Strategy for 9-16th may

So having tried the prof cd's each day and flipping items on ah which means buying low and selling higher, i want to take advantage of the main thing i have learned this week and that is the best time to sell is from wed-saturday. With this in my mind i am going to farm mats most of the week on my toons instead of just playing the ah which should give me a decent amount of eternals and greens to de.
The other thing i am considering is dropping alchemy on the rogue and training him up as a miner as the amount of etenals i can farm is significantly higher than what i get from zapthrottles mote extractor.
Although this means taking a hit on the amount of transmutes i can do i think it may be worthwhile, but again the other consideration is engineering is essentially a useless prof except for the pet market and personal use, so maybe keep the alch and drop the eng might be the way to proceed.
Will have to put some thought into this one.

The Screen shots

Unfortunately i didnt think to take a screenshot of my bags and starting amount of gold so you will have to take it on trust.

Auction House addons

The only two ah addons i use are auctionator, and advanced trade skill window. They make my life in the ah a hell of a lot easier, so i suggest give em a try.

The Staring Point

Ok i started down the road to ruin on Tuesday this week i write this on a lazy Sunday afternoon, i started with 400 gold in the org auction house.
My professions on my toons are as follows
Hypercorrupt. 450 enchanting, 450 alchemist (transmute)
Roadblokk 450 jewelcrafter, 450 leatherworker
Rope 450 Engineer, 450 alchemist (transmute).

The first thing i did was figure out what i had in saleable items, which turned out to be a heap of epic gems and enchanting mats, so up they went and they sold, this was a learning curve on what gems and mats sell and what dont.
Infinite dust sells well in single units and red epic cut gems do as does solid majestic zircon.
To date in just 6 days i am up to over 6k from wheeling and dealing in these items.
Getting my transmutes done each day, cutting them on my jc and posting them, consistent best seller is delicate cardinal ruby +20 agility, and solid majestic zircon =30 stamina. I did venture into flasks of endless rage on saturday bought 20 frost lotus 2 stacks of goldclover 2 stacks of lichbloom for under 350 g made 10 flasks of endless rage posted them at 35 g each had my stake back in an hour and enough frost lotus for 30 more flasks all in all a nice profit.

The other market i have noticed that is worth pursuing primarily on raid days is the buff food market i went and bout 4 stacks of dragonfin angelfish, 100 northern spices and cooked up 2 stacks of blackened dragonfin and 2 stacks of dragonfin filet, cost for mats was around 300g so i posted stack of 5 at 32g ea sold the lot with a net profit of 300g not bad for 5mins work. Next post i will get some screenshots up of the growing gold pile.

The AH Death Knight???

I have been playing wow for a few years now and decided it was time i stopped having enough gold to get by on, and actually had enough to do everything i want to in game when cataclysm hits.
So pop in frequently and have a look at how I am going and where i am making and losing gold.
I will post frequent screenshots so the evidence is there for all to see.
