Make loads of Money from Small Egg sales
Hey all! As many of you know The fest of Winter Veil is upon us, and as with any World Event, there is tons of money to be made by exploiting people lazyness and reluctance to farm for 5 minutes.
To get the "MerryMaker" title, you need to have completed the achievement "The Winter Veil Gourmet" which requires you to eat:
- Gingerbread Cookie
- Egg Nog
- Hot Apple Cider
Both Gingerbread Cookie's and Egg Nog require 1 Small Egg each, which as most of you already know, can be farmed very easily from any bird like creature.
People are prepared to pay up to 10 gold for one small egg just for this achievement on the auction house.
To make lots of money, you need:
- 1 Hour of Time
- A place to farm Eggs (Explained Later)
- Control of the Small Egg market
Now, if you are horde, you will need to go to a place like "Eversong woods" where the Dragonhawk Hatchlings have a 100% drop chance of the egg.
If you are alliance, The Mountain Buzzard's in Loch Modan have a 71% chance to drop the Egg.
Now with flying mounts in azeroth though, Alliance can easily get to Horde zones without trouble and vise-versa.
Also, you can look here for more drop locations.
Now, once you have found a suitable farming location, you need to use your "One hour of Time." Farm all the eggs you can, depending on your location and your faction, you should be able to get a fair amount of eggs in this time, I got 103.
Once you have got all your eggs, travel to a auction house (you could try a Neutral Auction House, I have not tried it yet though so please leave feedback on how it worked!)
Once you reach the auction house, find all the "Small Egg" auctions and if the price is low, buy them ALL out so there is non left, Then you must create auctions one small egg at a time with a buyout price you choose, I recommend around 5 gold
If the price of eggs is high on the Auction House, then create the small egg auctions at a slightly lower price, make it lower by about 10-20 silver, it makes all the difference!
Now, you must wait, check back on the auction house periodically to check if someone else has put small eggs at a much cheaper price than you, this method only works if you have control of the Small Egg market on the Auction House, because if you are the only person who sells them, you can set whatever price you want and the customer will have no alternitave seller to turn to who is cheaper.
Make the buyout price not too high and don't make it WAY higher than the starting bid price which should be around 3-4 gold.
Now, wait for one day and check your mailbox to reap your rewards!
Remember though, this method will only work when the demand for small eggs is high during the Winter Veil festival.
Enjoy and please leave feedback on how much gold you made!
Guess it's a little bit to late to make a lot of money with this. The regular price for eggs on my server is atm around 40silver
yeah SUPER late. Also this tip has been around for literally years and has been posted on every wow site and forum every year. Since this is already like a week old and everyone and their grandma knows it prices (on my server at least) hovered around 75s an egg day 2 and nobody was buying.
But thats good if all the Eggs on the server are cheap, it means you can buy all of them out and then place your Small Eggs on the AH for way higher prices, this method only works when ALL the Small Egg auctions are yours
Well i guess this is good if you are a low level but if not then this is horrible money for the time spent.
+ 100g(random profit of buying other eggs and reselling)
615g for one-two hours work and checking ah
Many guides and places in cata that you can farm 2k without a problem on much more reliable items such as cloth or ore and disenchants from greens.
+Rep for effort put forth.
