I haven’t shared much about my gold making lately mostly because my gold making has taken a bit of a back seat to leveling my characters and playing with Archaeology. I do need gold though, and have been trying to get my barrings in the Cataclysm Auction House! Because I play both the Alliance and Horde fairly actively, (though to be honest my play time has been a bit Alliance heavy lately), and because I am pet crazy, I noticed something cool about the new Enchanting pets!
My Horde Enchanter can purchase the pattern for the Enchanted Lantern for 20 Hypnotic Dust at 525. The mats to make the lantern are 8 Heavenly Shards, 1 Maelstrom Crystal and 8 Hypnotic Dust. The average price for this pet on my Horde server is around 2000g.
My Alliance Enchanter purchased the pattern for the Magic Lamp for 20 Hypnotic Dust at 525. The mats for this one are 8 Heavenly Shards, 1 Maelstrom Crystal and 4 Greater Celestial Essence. The average price for this pet on my Alliance server is around 3500g.
The pets are great to sell if you can find the mats for a decent price and are a max Enchanter, but they are even better to sell to the opposite faction! If you are the only one doing it, you can more than double your price! I have only seen one Enchanted Lantern in my Alliance Auction House and it was for 7000g and have never seen a Magic Lamp in my Horde Auction House. Even if you don’t have both Alliance and Horde characters on the same server, you could try posting them for a higher price in the Neutral Auction House in either Booty Bay or Gadgetzan or if you aren’t an Enchanter you could try flipping them cross faction.
Hopefully some of you can make some gold selling these! Pets really are my favorite market. Also, don’t forget to keep selling the Dalaran Pets, now that the Dalaran portals are gone, they sell for even more than before!
Thanks for Reading!
