The Magic Lamp & Enchanted Lantern

Monday, January 17th, 2011

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!

Whatever Wednesday – What’s Been Up

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

Hello Readers,

I thought I’d use my Whatever Wednesday post to talk about what all I have been up to in WoW lately. I have two characters at level 85 now, my Paladin and my Priest. I have been trying to get my Priest into some decent gear, because eventually I’d like to get into a raid with her. I joined a raid guild, the 5th best raid guild on my server, but I’m not sure what I think of it so far. One of my oldest WoW buddies is in the guild, along with my brother, but there’s just something about the average raider’s attitude that rubs me the wrong way. I have run heroics with a few members, and they go out of their way to try to help me get gear, but if the whole time they treat everyone else in the group like crap, it’s hard for me to be thankful, or even want to group with them again. It’s always been “Attitude > Skills” for me when it comes to players, so I’m foreseeing a bit of trouble “fitting in”.

Aside from running heroics, I spent 6000g today to finally finish leveling my enchanting to 525. It was a lot of gold, but there are enchants I want that aren’t available in the Auction House, so it was time I just learned to do them myself, lol. I’m most looking forward to Power Torrent, which will take me 5 Maelstrom Crystals to buy, and another 5 to make, but I’m hoping I can make back my gold by being one of the first people on my server with it. Why do I want this enchant so bad you ask? Well to put on my new Staff of Sorcerer-Thane Thaurissan of course!

I’ve been looking for this Archaeology Relic for days now, and finally found it yesterday afternoon. It was the 54th Dwarven Relic I solved, so I definitely put a lot of hours into looking for it, but I think it was worth it. I was expecting to equip it on my Shadow Priest and suddenly see myself doing 20k dps, but unfortunately it didn’t make that much of a difference. It’s still awesome that I found it though. I’m always last place for dps, but I am wearing a few greens, so I think that will change once I catch up gear wise!

Other than tones of dailies, I also made a new character! (I know, crazy, I already have way too many) I didn’t have an Alliance Deathknight on my main account though, so I created a pink-haired Night Elf one named Fuchsia! I used to like playing my DK, before I left her behind on a deserted server all by herself, so hopefully I enjoy the new frost dps! My brother made a DK with me named Listen, and we’re going to try to level them together.

As one final note, has anyone else seen the Black Embersilk Gown? I haven’t been running heroics with my tailor, so I can’t make them because they require a chaos orb, but omg is it ever pretty! I can’t wait to make one! It’s totally useless I know, but I’m a sucker for pricey vanity items. If you are too, you can buy the pattern for 8 bolts of Embersilk from the cloth trader in Twilight Highlands.

Hope you’re all having as much fun in game as I am!
