I'm pleased to introduce cheap wow gold Stimulus first guest post by the one and only Marcko Polo from the fabulously popular rift Gold blog!
I decided to finally take a seat and talk about the very best ten items I see rising in price during the upcoming Cataclysm Expansion that you can start stockpiling immediately. Within the comments section feel free to naysay some of my top or suggest your own additions you deem better than my very own list.
Item #1: Pets
With the changes to Azeroth scheduled to be sold when cataclysm goes live, it's possible that several vendor pets and rare drops could disappear forever. Two examples of pets I'm referring to would be the black tabby cat or ancona chicken. As these items will sell even if a vendor is added to stormwind and orgrimmar (there are many vendor items which cost 200-400% markup!) there's very little risk involved in stockpiling pets for cataclysm. With all of those new characters I'm there is a quite a few achievement hunters among them.
Economic Analysis: Since pets will sell no matter who sells them you're going to get at least some cash during the worst case scenario and have priceless pets in the best case scenario since the playerbase will no longer possess a source to obtain more of them. Medium risk, High reward.
Item #2: Netherweave Bags
Netherweave bags ALWAYS sell. I have without doubt in my mind that the market for these will explode once the first goblins and worgens step foot inside the ah.
Economic Analysis: 99.99999% possibility of profit stockpiling these beauties. Safe, High reward.
Item #3: Saronite Ore
I spoke about stockpiling saronite ore for cataclysm already on Ferraro's blog, but allow me to reiterate the key reason to start stocking up on saronite: Transmute Titanium. Alchemists (there is a large amount of new goblin alchemists) will be chomping at the bit for fast, sure fire skill ups getting those previous couple of skill ups before they can make use of the new cataclysm materials. Transmute titanium is the answer to almost all their leveling issues.
Economic Analysis: Saronite ore can be purchased for near vendor price currently which means that there is hardly any risk behind buying the ore and crafting it into bars while preparing for that expansion. Safe, Medium reward.
Item #4: Infinite Dust
This item falls into the category of leveling materials that what will be asked to reach the skill ups necessary for cataclysm level enchanting. I expect that they'll increase in price over the course of the expansion to sit around the 4.5 gold mark per dust. With inflation it could get even higher and also, since you can occasionally find dust as cheap as 50 silver it is really an easy investment with very little risk involved.
Economic Analysis: The price cannot possibly get lower on infinite dust because it is going to be necessary to gain levels efficiently just before cataclysm skill ups within the expansion. Low risk, High reward.
Item #5: Cobalt Bars
Cobalt is going to be essential for engineering and blacksmithing leveling (jewelcrafters will most likely prospect the cheaper saronite ore except if nobody entering saronite zones in cataclysm simply because they stay in starter wotlk zones changes that). Using a healthy stockpile will probably net you decent returns in Cataclysm and when you asked me to guess?- oh you are asking me? Ok well during my humble and experienced opinion cobalt bars will sit around 50 gold per stack in the expansion.
Economic Analysis: Medium risk, High reward.
Item #6: Alchemy Leveling Kits
Ok so this really is a collection of items however the idea is you gather all the materials required to powerlevel someone from 1 to 450 alchemy and you market it. The only issue is that leveling requirements and recipes could change drastically in cataclysm. There's no guarantee that the stockpile will even work! However, the rewards for carrying this out are massive, in saving someone the time to gather the types of materials themselves they will often be prepared to pay for A large number of gold more than the items are worth in general. I've sold alchemy and blacksmithing kits for 4k profit and are available cataclysm I wouldn't be surprised to determine kits worth 2.5k opting for 7-8k gold easily.
Economic Analysis: High-risk, High reward.
Item #7: Lesser Cosmic Essences
Greater Cosmic Essences cost about 20 gold each as well as their lesser cousins for about 9 gold each today. I expect those to go up close to 30 gold for greaters and 15 gold for lesser. Pure speculation based entirely on guesswork, it might turn out that infinite dust is you need to level with the wotlk skill ups in cataclysm in which case saving these could be pointless.
Economic Analysis: Odds are the lessers it's still very useful for cataclysm but be accepting of because you may take a loss of revenue with this particular investment! High-risk, Medium reward.
Item #8: Enchanting Scrolls for BOA Gear
Low-level characters wearing their fancy smancy BOA gear don't have any reason To not enchant it. Although a lot of people have boa gear already, there is still the opportunity that they decide to produce a character on a new realm or perhaps a class which does not have the BOA gear already. In either scenario they will need enchants and lots of them! Popular ones is going to be speed to boots, enchant chest health, enchant chest mana, firey, crusader and spell power to weapon. There's still sufficient time before cataclysm to obtain a healthy supply of these to your guild bank and ready for that wave of new levelers wanting to grow their characters.
Economic Analysis: Low risk, High reward.
Item #9: Borean Leather
This is an item I've not seen anyone discuss when preparing for cataclysm. That's the best thing too for people wise enough to begin stockpiling it today as I predict prices for borean leather will reach the 35-55 gold mark per stack throughout the expansion. Right now it is going for about 20 gold a stack so that's quite a nice profit margin if I'm right! Regardless of what the price should remain up to it's today so you will at worst break even or otherwise double your hard earned money.
Economic Analysis: Low risk, High reward.
Item #10: Crystallized Water and Earth
These are super cheap right now (buy in eternal form, not crystallized since it's cheaper) and therefore are required by engineers to level engineering in to the cataclysm skill up range. Again, this is an item I've not seen anyone suggest stockpiling and I expect so that it is quite valuable come cataclysm, possibly even 1-3 gold per crystallized element. Considering the fact that these go for under 50 silver that's a great deal of profit! The only downside is that if these don't sell you will virtually be stuck with them as they won't be essential for any other leveling professions when cataclysm hits and Tera Item.
