Long Overdue...

For anyone that has read or even looked at my blog, you will know it isn't much, due to pure laziness and no motivation to write anything and i didn't want to write anything that was just picked off the shelf, blended up and re-packaged as my own, as i see many blogs do.

But i feel seeing as a few weeks? maybe more ago, i wrote saying that i got my gold back and will be continuing my adventures as a lowbie gold maker yet didn't post anything toward's it after that, i let some people down.(if people actually read this thing)

So, i thought i'd write this post and update on what's been happening.
Last time we spoke i invested all 10k of the gold i received back and put invested it right back into markets and bought over 400 different mop Green's to re-sell(also invested into some Deviate fish) and have since sold 40% of what i bought.

Since 5.2 i haven't really logged onto the toon much to do anything lowbie like, but over the past week i have been logging on once a day to repost anything that ended up in the mailbox with out thinking too much forward of what i wanted to do.

As im writing this it is 4:17 am and i can't sleep so i decided to log on and look around my toons and see what needed improvement, then i landed on this toon... Re posted as i normally would... logged out... then thought to myself.. its 4am nothing to do why not just improve this toon so i did.

Improving this toon left me deciding between dropping herbalism or mining to pick up a crafting profession, as it currently stands low level Ore is worth more plus mining acts as a crafting profession if used right(pity TSM doesn't it see it like that)

With that i then went and asked myself what matched with mining? Blacksmithing? Jewelcrafting? Engineering? Which was the most profitable at the current level? Calculating it in my head i determined Jewelcrafting to be the most profitable due to the gem's you can receive from prospecting and the main leveling gem's seem to come out around lvl 50 from tin ore(the lowest level to really profit from) which only requires lvl 10 to learn.

I leveled my JC following wowprofessions guide which was simply:
50 copper bars
25 of either malachite or tigerseye ( i used a mixture of both)

1-25: Delicate copper wire
25-50: Tigerseye band/malachite necklace

Which costed me a total of about 380g give or take a few gold.

The basics of propsecting simple gems for profit is posted in countless places including http://www.elvinelol.com/forums/showthread.php?239-Prospecting-Simple-Gems

How ever i went one step further for tin ore and created a little spreadsheet you can download from google docs.
The Spreadsheet

Basically go through your AH, input your prices / your ore amount and bang, done!

I must warn you that these prospecting values are taken from Wowhead's own data so it may not be 100% accurate!

After all that i went and invested some gold into tin ore and started prospecting!

As you can see i spent a total of 258g on ore... not too bad, i didn't buy any ore above 1g per piece

with my spreadsheet i calculated the total cost as the highest price i paid for the items. and it comes up with some interesting numbers, 1.3k profit is apparently possible, well see how that works out.


Other then that and the typical stuff i have posted about, nothing else in the routine has changed drastically.

So after all this absent time my current summary results are as follows:

Maybe expect some future posts if anything interesting comes up.
