Dungeoneering Guide – Quick flip
This past week I’ve flipped 3-4 Dungeoneering Guides (so far). This would deserve a “so what?”, except that there’s a useful tip in here… I think…
Because this craftable offers 5 inscription points, scribes just make them to level then toss them in an undercutting war into the AH. On our server, it got to where all 5-6 of the listings ranged around 200-250g.
However, mat costs are pretty high for this craftable: about 1,300g on our server at the moment.
So I promptly bought them all and relisted one at 800g; it sold within hours. I have since sold another at 600g, another at 300g+, and can’t recall but think I sold a fourth at some point. Since my first purchase (and sales success), I have bought others cheaply as well.
The only reason I bothered with a pricey item like this I know the cost of replacing it is much higher than where I am pricing it.
Sure, others may have extra guides ready to re-list, but I bought them so cheaply it took just a couple of sales to recoup my costs. And I’m positive I’ll be able to sell the rest at a decent profit within a reasonable timeframe.
Can you think of other pricey items like this that flood the market far below cost due to leveling? Let me know!
