Dungeon Dive: 100 Runs of Sunwell Plateau (31-40)

A total of 2h of goldmaking and 40 runs of Sunwell Pleateau (trash only) and this is what LootAppraiser has told us the potential gains have been for this week: 106,240g

  • Total approx gold earned (runs1-40) is: 724,315g
  • Actual amount earned from sales to date: 74,969g
  • Actual amount of GPH: 37,484g

Value of items on the AH: 120,564g

While the numbers of estimated gold and actual gold are still pretty sparse, it’s not all doom and gloom. Gold IS being made, and if doing these dungeon runs is something you enjoy, then there’s absolutely no harm in running them and putting everything you obtain up for sale. Making 37k gph is not a horrible feat. You might also just get a lot more lucky than I have with sales, I’m currently playing on a high population server, and sometimes there’s a lot of competition (or I just don’t have anything valuable up on the AH when someone wants it). This week some recipes finally sold (the goggles are fast movers these days as they’re tied to an achievement) and a few grey/white items. Nothing of very high value, but at only 2h spent, I’m not going to complain too much. Let’s see what next week brings!

Dungeon Dive: 100 Runs of Sunwell Plateau [21-30]

We’re on 1h30m of gold making after 30 runs of Sunwell Plateau, and this is what LootAppraiser has told us the potential gains have been:

  • 1-10: 122,091g (estimated)
  • 11-20: 252,247g (estimated)
  • 21-30: 253,737g (estimated)

Total: 618,075g (approx: 412,050g per hour)

Actual amount earned to date: 35,229g (approx: 23,486g per hour)

Amount still on the auction house: 272,155g

The numbers of actual gold earned vs. estimated gold earned are VASTLY different – but – making 20k an hour (give or take) may not be a horrible investment of time if you’re enjoying what you’re doing. I did pick up a fair number of recipes this past run, so we’ll have to see where sales go in the future. Keep in mind this is on a high population server and your own gains may be lower or higher than the TSM region market value average that I’m using as a price point.

Druids are a LOT of fun in patch 10.2 and here’s how you can unlock the Blue Dreamsaber form!

You’ll learn this form from the Moon-Blessed Claw, but first you’ll need to loot a small box of vials, in the Eye of Yesera subzone of the Emerald Dream.

Each vile is linked to a specific continent, and you’ll need to fill them.

Dungeon Dive: 100 Runs of Sunwell Plateau [11-20]

Last week I did my first 10 runs of Sunwell Plateau, and LootAppraiser told me I had a looted item value of 122091g in 30 minutes. This week I ran another 10 dungeons, and LA gave me 252,247g in valued items. In actuality, with sales, I’ve earned 436g (that’s the raw gold from this week) plus 7,757g (that’s how much everything sold for this week) plus the 483g in raw gold from last week. That brings me to a total of estimated looted: 374,338g in 1h of farming. Actual gold earned with raw + sales: 8,676g. Now, earning 8,676g in an hour of farming isn’t exactly THAT bad, but it sure isn’t that great, either – and it’s a far cry from what LootAppraiser claims I’ve made. The plus side is that I do also have a lot of stock – and that has value even though it hasn’t sold yet. Right now my stock value is:

Now if those items sell, that would be fantastic. Even if a small number of it sold it would be great. Right now though we’re just sitting on stock hoping it sells, with a total of less than 10k gold per hour.

We’ll just have to see what next week brings!

Dungeon Dive: 100 Runs of Sunwell Plateau [1-10]

This isn’t the first time I’ve done a dungeon dive – but I used to post them over on another blog, and I decided instead of keeping multiple blogs I’d merge them all into this one. It’s been a while, so here’s the next dungeon dive that I’m doing – Sunwell Plateau.

122,091g estimated gold earned

I’m using the TSM region market value avg to price my loot from LootAppraiser, and I’m using a heavily modified profile from BilisOnyxia to post them to the auction house. In the past I was on a low population server, but these days I’m spread between many servers, and for this particular challenge I’m on a medium pop, so we’ll see how things go. If you’re not familiar with how I run these challenges here’s the basics.

LOTS of videos out there boast about making thousands of gold an hour, but they fail to take actual sales earned into consideration. I run 100 runs of a dungeon, adding up the “looted item value” and then compare it to the “actual sales value” each week. Then I create a GPH from the actual gold earned rather than the assumed amount. In the past this worked out pretty neat, it was a more realistic view of how much gold you could potentially earn. RNG of course plays into it, the type of server you’re on, and other factors. I use 1 character to run the dungeons & sell the materials so they’ve never got more gold than what the dungeons provided. If you’re interested in my older runs of Sunwell, you can find those posts here.

These days it takes me roughly 30-35 minutes to run 10 instances of Sunwell Plateau, and that’s the time I’ll use to frame GPH instead of rounding up to 1 full hour. I know you’re locked from doing more instances (10 per hour is the cap, sometimes you can squeeze a few more in) but you could also go and do something else to make gold in that free time that doesn’t involve running a dungeon.

Here are the addons I’m using, too:

  • Auctionator
  • LootAppraiser
  • TradeskillMaster
  • MonkeySpeed
  • Dejunk
  • Faster Loot
  • WoWThing Collector

Next week we’ll see if anything actually sold, and add to that the next 10 runs.
