We Need More Writers!
When I read this email I felt like I was on some rapid fire question game show with only a few seconds for each answer. So I decided to take my time and slowly craft answers that would help both Tim here as well as anyone else with the same unspoken questions in their mind. Here is the original email:
"I've been making a few silvers on mighty amulet, but someone's been undercutting me lately so I think someone else is onto it. I also use http://gw2tp.net/ to find good flipping items. Usually it's just crafting materials and I've made a bit there too. I just started looking into unidentified *color* dye, but haven't made anything from there yet. I've been putting buy orders for leveling gear (greens) and only a few of my buys have been filled, but I always make a couple silver when they sell. I tried mystic forging major sigils, but it didn't work very well. How much do you need to put in before it averages out? In your blog it said that you would have to put a pretty big investment in to average out bad luck. I bought a few low level upgrade jewels which are coming in fast enough, but I'm not sure how they'll sell, but we'll see.I'm looking for shorter term flips. What kind of things do you usually flip when you want to sit at the TP and trade for a bit? What kind of profits do you get when you do this?How fast do you usually make gold? If you started at 10g, how long would it take you to get to 20g? I'm not really sure how fast or how much I'm making right now, because I'm still farming other places and selling things that I pick up so it would be hard to say.I have about 15g to play with right now with at least another 5 in buy/sell orders. What kind of markets would you recommend?Sorry for all the questions, I just started a couple days ago and I'm still not sure how it's supposed to work.Thanks,Tim"
