Buy and Sell Glyphs for Auction House Gold

Big Gold Profits from Glyphs


This video walks you through my process for making extreme amounts of gold from buying and selling Glyphs at the auction house.

Now, if you’ve been following my techniques for a while, you know that I don’t really advise anyone to follow a crafting profession in order to make a lot of Gold. You can do it to be helpful within your guild, or because you enjoy giving the stuff you make to friends and so on. But when it comes to making gold the fastest way possible, crafting is just way too time consuming for it to payoff.

Things have actually gotten a bit better in the Wrath of the Lich King setting, specifically for Inscription, but also to some degree for Jewelcrafting and Enchanting. This is basically because these professions create items that are in constant and repeated demand – players who want glyphs, and gems and enchants tend to buy them over and over again – and because there is now such a huge number of desirable items in each of those categories that you can often sell your stuff for high prices, with little competition.

But what I’m showing you today doesn’t actually require the Inscription profession… not at all.

Walkthrough: Buy/Sell Glyphs


It’s really easy to buy big stocks of good glyphs that will sell well. You can buy them at prices below the cost of making them, literally below cost. And then of course, you will sell them on the auction house at the price the market is actually willing to pay.

Just to give you an idea of the scale of this, you can often buy ordinary glyphs – the “Major” glyphs that every Scribe learns automatically from trainers – for less than 1g each. And if you’re patient, you’ll be able to get most of the rarer “Minor” glyphs for well under 5g each, sometimes as low as 1g.

Then on the selling side… well, my rule of thumb is I don’t sell any Glyph of any kind for less than about 10g. With the Minor glyphs, my basic minimum price is 20g. And for the glyphs that are in high demand, whether they are Major or Minor glyphs, I’m aiming more at the 35g – 50g range.

Baby Blizzard Bear

Celebrating WoW’s 4th birthday

Make sure you log in today!

Everyone who logs in on November 23, 2008 is getting a nice surprise from Blizzard: a cute little Baby Blizzard Bear companion pet!

The gift is a celebration of World of Warcraft’s 4th birthday on this day.

As soon as you log in, you’ll find mail waiting for you, with this message:

“Did you know that the World of Warcraft is now four years old? We wanted to send you something to say thanks for sharing this game with us. Sure, the 4th Anniversary present is traditionally “Flowers” … but in WoW, it’s “Bear”. With that said, please accept this furry little friend! Just remember to hold his fish by the tail, not the body … that mouth is bigger than it looks.”

Adding to the surprise is the “WoW’s 4th Anniversary” Achievement you get for logging in. The Baby Blizzard is bound to your account, so you can share it among all your characters. This means you don’t actually have to log in on every character to get the pet, since you can send it around by mail, and “learn” the pet on each character. But I think you have to actually log in on each character to get the special Achievement.

The WoW 4th Anniversary Achievement

Sweet surprise, Blizzard!
