So about a week ago i bought a 960 Leggings of the Sable Stalker for 100k, hoping to flip it for a nice profit. So i listed it on the AH pretty high, at 375k, but also spammed trade chat and responding to any intrest with an offer of 250k. A few asked and most just ignored the offer, but some would whisper back "lol" or "ok bud". One person even went into how dumb i was and how that stuff was available in +10's and i would never sell it. I knew i would eventually find someone to sell to in trade, but today i logged in and someone had bought it off the AH for the full 375k. Just don't let naysayers badger you into feeling bad about your price point.
I think this is covered by general life advice someone told teenager me once: "water off a duck's back." Someone insulting you? Trying to pick a fight? Annoying older sibling? Their shit should flow off you like water off a duck's back. Don't let it get to you.
In the context of goblining, anyone who has posted big ticket items in trade chat has to have learned this, or will eventually. Maybe you took advantage of a blip in the market to pick up an item cheaply, knowing it will go back up. Maybe you are looking for someone who is desperate and needs that thing right now but the AH prices are either even higher or no items are listed (maybe you are the reason why?) If you let the trolls get to you, you will never turn a profit, and will spend too much time and energy arguing with idiots on the internet. Time and energy better spent making profits. Just be confident that your asking price will eventually result in a sale, and you are being reasonable... in some context.
I remember reading a story in a Magic: The Gathering magazine back in the 1990s (before the internet, lol). Guy went to a convention where people were, of course, playing and trading. He set out on a mission: starting with some crap common card, trade his way up to one of the top-tier rares. He mentioned the old saying "there's a sucker born every minute" but added a corollary: "I just need to find him." He found someone that really needed that crap card right now and was willing to overpay/trade. He then took whatever he got and repeated until he achieved his goal. Sort of like the zero to 1 million gold challenges. Anyway, by posting in trade, you are looking for that one sucker, or that guy who is willing to trade gold for the convenience and immediacy of getting that item right now. You just need to find that guy.
I had this happen with a mount I was squawking in trade at 80k. Someone kept trying to tell me it'd never sell at that price, because they're only worth 55k. This person started talking smack about how stupid I was trying to sell it at such a vastly overinflated price and it'd never sell, how they'd just wait until I gave up and lowered my price, etc.
Before I logged off for the night, I threw it on the AH at 100k - it had sold by the time I logged in the next day at that price.
I have a feeling this person was trying to get me to sell it cheaper so they could flip it.
Greetings fellow Goblins!
Some of you may of heard about the Seed Raid Discord, some of you might have not. Not to worry!
Most information used in this guide will be from the The Ultimate Seed Raid Guide
What are Seed Raids
Seed Raids are raids consisting of exactly 10 people who are grouping up to plant their Legion Herbalism Seeds. Groups always consist of 10 players, not more, not less. The reason behind this is that a planted Legion Herbalism Seed can be gathered by up to 10 people. Therefore, only 10 people are allowed to a raid and to maximize profits you always take 10 players! You can make up to even 100k profit per hour if you have a good server for that. Unfortunately, there are servers these might not be profitable.
Currently there are seven types of Seed in Legion: Aethrilsamen
. However, only the first five of those can be planted and are used in Seed Raids.Yserallinensamen
can not be planted and do not produce an herb node. Felwort on the other hand can be planted and do produce an herb node, but this herb node can only be gathered by one person. Therefore, it is not used during Seed Raids. However, you can use it to trade for regular seeds in the #seed-trade channel.
How do I get into the action myself?
In order to get in on the action yourself you can visit the Seed Raid Discord
. Once you have joined the Discord Server there is a 10 minute timer, which keeps you from talking, but gives you time to read up on the #welcome
channel. After your 10 minutes have passed you can then enroll yourself into the correct region(s) and faction(s) as you desire, by using the following commands in the #role-request channel and reacting in #get-roles
If you already have Aethril and Felwort Rank 3, you should head to #role-request and do as followed in pinned message :D
Preparations for a Seed Raid
In order to participate in Seed Raids, you need a level 110 character with Herbalism. Besides that, you of course need some Legion Seeds!
How do I obtain seeds?
There are three ways to acquire seeds:
- Farming them by herbing nodes across Broken Isles (after you have Felwort Rank 3).
- Herbalism World Quest Rewards (These are rare, we post them in #announcements when they happen).
- Trading or buying them from the Auction House.
If you decide to farm them yourself you need Felwort Rank 3, as this allows you to occasionally loot seeds while gathering herbs across the Broken Isles. In order to get the Felwort Rank 3 you will need a lvl 110 herbalist character and defeating Cenarius in the Emerald Nightmare raid (can be done in LFR). The best and most efficient way is (you guessed it) through the Auction House.
How many seeds do I need?
The amount and type of seeds varies on each raid and depends on several factors, such as the amount of seeds other raiders have, the available time and which rules the Seed Organizer sets for the raid. Always verify your understanding of the rules for the run with the organizer running it! The most usual Seed Raid sizes are for 50 and 100 seeds. As an estimate, 50 seed raids take about 25 minutes to 1h to complete and 100 seeds 50 minutes or any other amount the Seed Organizer states.
Where do Seed Raids take place?
The raid usually take place near Felblaze Ingress in Azsuna.
What are the Seed Raid Rules?
The Seed Raid Rules are these, where you need to have the seedling role to attend raids, without it, you can't join a raid!Felwort Rank 3 Required
. The Teufelswurz
Rank 3 is required, because they give you additional seeds from the Seed Raid (usually it's around 30% seeds which you plant)Aethril Rank 3 Required
Rank 3 is required by the fact they spawn additional nodes when herbing, which increases amount of herbs you get from a raid.
