More random tips for Pandaria

You asked for it - so here's more!
If you didn't - sorry, here's more!


Pandaria Alchemy
Potion of Luck is the new Potion of Treasure Finding - same trick applies: use it for leveling, farming, grinding rep, etc.

While we're on the subject, Alchemy is incredibly easy to level and complete.
You just need an afternoon of herb farming and you're good to discover all of the new recipes.
If you need help to find out which ones you're still missing, grab AckisRecipeList and you're good to go.
Golden Lotus, however, are a pain in the...flask... to find.

Engineering items
For those of you who don't have an Engineer or don't play around with it regularly, one thing that is important to know about this profession is that complexity makes for a part of it's charm.
People might say it's also one of it's major problems, but I don't think they understand what the kit and philosophy of the profession.
It's complex and that's the whole point about it.
It's tinkering and gathering all sorts of different pieces, getting some parts, turning them into other parts, which become parts for a new item.

That being said, it doesn't mean that you can't make life a little easier for the leveling Engineers by making sure they have fresh supplies in the Auction House at all times.
That's why I always sell Bolts.
Bolts and Bolts and Bolts because that's the bread and butter of every new Engineering tier and they need tons of them.
Also: for different reasons, totally unrelated to the fact that buying the ores or the bars might be cheaper options for them, some people will buy Bolts at whatever cost you'll post them.
And also: there's tons of other items that Engineers need to level their tradeskill.


Burning Crusade green gems
If you follow me on Twitter, I've been mentioning Consortium gems a lot, and well first I'm sorry for spamming you about it.
I know it's not a way to make piles of gold, but it's one of the few times when those green BC gems get their prices raised and they're just there for you to grab
Sell them before people crash the markets again at 1g per gem...

Adamantite and Jewelcrafting
Mercurial Adamantite is needed for Jewelcrafters leveling through the BC content, and it's so easy and cost-effective to make profit out of it, especially if you're the only one doing it.
These days the Adamantite Ore on my server is less than 5g/stack, so there's no excuse.
Buy, prospect, craft, post and post the green gems as well.
You can also sell the Adamantite Powder you get from prospecting, just to make sure you cover as much of the market as you can.

Pandaria Archeology
This is just a simple warning to everyone who's thinking of selling the new archeology keystones.
We have Pandaren and Mogu ones and although they're new, don't expect to make the same kind of profit you would make with the Tol'vir ones.
If there's any other reference for pricing, you should look at the Draenei and Orc ones from Outland.
They come from one expansion, they're the only 2 that people are going to be picking up, and there's a lot of digsites.
So they're not going to be rare and people are not going to be fighting over the keystones.
And like the Draenei and Orc archeology projects, the Pandaren and Mogu projects aren't incredibly hard to complete.
Heck, a friend of mine completed everything except a couple of grey items all in a single day.
So the advantage is : you can do your own and totally skip using the keystones.
The bad side is : not humongous profits.
But for people who don't have patience and have handfuls of gold, they won't see the difference.


Pandaria Jewelcrafting
Having less than 90 Designs to discover at the rate of 1 Design per day makes me a really friggin' happy Jewelcrafter.
If we went at the rate of Wrath or Cataclysm, I'd still be trying to get all these Designs a year from now.
Anyways, Elvine posted this on Twitter and I think it's mighty interesting.

Elvine specified that it's designed for PvE gemming only, but that's really what's interesting to most people.
Also, this link might interest a lot of people.

I'll let the more knowledgeable people talk about it.

Important Beginning-of-Expansion Tip
Be on the lookout for all raw items that sell more to the vendor after transformation.
People are emptying their banks!
And there's a lot of profit to be made in there, if you are so willing as to take the time to look into it.

Last tip : Save this link
Keep this link handy.
No really.
You'll need to go read it a lot.
Just click on it and bookmark it.
DO IT.
I'm not kidding - I keep referring to it a dozen times a day for guildies and myself.

Remember to enjoy the expansion! ^_^
