    @alexlee922 that sounds interesting, how many herbs do you have to transfer just to cover the server swap fee? largest herb bags+void storage. could transfer quite a bit. what do your margins look like?

    Well it really depends on how much you can sell gold for, but currently, can move in excess of 60k herbs initialially bought at 10g ea , resell on them is approx 33-40g, so 600k initial investment, 1.8mil-2.4mil total.

    Say token is at 110000 gold for 15 euros, transfer is 17 euros,

    So still making a killing haha

    "No longer make a profit"?
    I bot 24/7 with 2 bots, I make over 5000 Starlight Rose per day. I'm making a profit even if it's 10g per rose.
    You seem to forget that you're on a botting forum. You can't destroy competition which has steady income of herbs and will always undercut. Besides, it's a lot of different people who buy my Starlight Rose, not the guy who's selling those 150+ stacks.

    that is commonly known as 'wal-mart logic'. kill the competition with volume sales and penny margins. it is a legit strategy, but its high risk, high visibility, and won't last for long.

    Even my 50x50 is risky, but that guy takes the prize.
    doesn't prove botting. someone who plays the wh can reset it quite easily.

    I agree im one of those on my not botted toon. when i find a bot i like to post a small quantity for less, they lower the price so i repeat. once the bot price is reasonable i buy every as many as i can afford and repost them at peak usage times

    How are you safe from the bot just refarming the mats again and again just undercutting you slightly? You can again lover the price until it reaches a low point and buy them to re-list and a higher, but the bot is back again with just slightly undercutting you?
    In the end you can hope for the bot to just leave the market.

    I am speaking from experience from MOP. I used to farm a place in old Cata as a byproduct i found out that i get a lot volatile air. Price back then was in the X00 range per item and i could get 50 a hour. Thing was demand was uber low, you could sell a couple maybe a day, just another K in the bank. Fortunately for me i made a mistake and undercut with around 50% next day everything was sold made more gold that my 5 man team made in MOP on a single account. Fed the market hundreds of those mats sold maybe 5-6k to a flipper. Made some bank he stopped buying so i sold the gold... later got banned for gold selling.


    In this case i won and he won because in the end he will resell the stuff over some months. However i could have started selling just 5-6 a day and he would be a bag holder until i leave (get banned)
