Laziness, my ugly side

I think I have at least one of every "rare" pattern in the game.  You know, the Lifelike Mechanical Toads, the stats to chest, the arcane bombs, all that jazz.  Thing of it is, I don't even remember which guild bank I have them in.  Tonight begins project clean sweep.  A cleaning out of the banks.  There really is no reason for me to have 1000 or so of each uncut uncommon cata gem.  This is where it starts, cut, vendor, cut vendor.  At least I can do this part mostly afk.

My goal is to have the banks mostly sorted by tomorrow evening.  My advice to you is this.  Don't let the guild banks get too out of control.  Just as in real life, it is easier to keep it clean as you go then to wait until it is a total disaster and do it all at once.

The Great Chicken

I have no idea why, but ever since I saw it for the first time, I knew that Magic Rooster Egg had to be mine.  Luckily enough, while scanning the auction house before work, one appeared.  62k gold.  Or it may have only been 52k.  Honestly, I don't know.  I clicked buyout so fast I didn't really get a good look.  The fact remains, I have it.

Speaking of TCG mounts, a few weeks ago I flipped a Wooly White Rhino I bought for 52k, for 95k.  Sure, it took a couple weeks to move, but you cant argue with that profit!

The Agile Shadowspirit Project

It was a huge success for a long time.  I sold over 50 of them for about 1000g a piece.  Great profits!  Until other folks started getting into the market, undercutting me as soon as I posted.  What's a goblin to do?  Well, make them pay of course!  Prices were slashed, in half at first.  500g each.  A few followed, a few hated.  A few price drops later, I was moving them as fast as I could cut them for 275g.  The profits weren't as good as when I had started, but neither was the market.  All in all, the 2000g I spent on the recipe was worth it.  Hopefully the 20k gold the competition spent on it was not.  You no take my market!
