Glyph Crafting Errors: how to deal with extra stacks

Recently I've been trying to push my glyph stockpile to 20 of each, I'm pretty much there as I've lowered my crafting requirements to craft those with 10g profit minimum and cleared out that crafting queue with blackfallow to spare. However in doing this I've ended up with some extra stacks of glyphs. This is bad for me because with the one toon posting system I use I need every available bank/bag slot to make receiving my mail faster.

How did I end up with extra glyphs even though my TSM set to craft only 20? There are a number of ways you can confuse TSM and honestly there's not a lot that Sapu94 can do about it as far as I know.
  1. Once you craft items, and mail them off to another character, they stop existing as far as TSM is concerned. Only once you open the mail on your other toon does TSM register you as having those items again. With this quirk you could do your crafting queue, mail off the items, hit restock queue again (before switching to that character and receiving the items) and you'll have those items you just mailed back on your queue. I'm sure i did this more than once in my crafting spree

TSM Glyph Groups

Lately I've been noticing as more people are bored and leveling their alts, my glyph sales have really gone up. To the point where as I'm posting I'll see glyphs I've just posted being sold! When this happens I re-post them and move on my merry way, but lately I've wondered if I should post more than one of each. On my server I'll usually sell 30 a weekday and 60+ on Friday-Sunday.

Recently Twichie of Twichie Enterprises released his Ultimate Glyph Performance List which is 1 year of sales data with the number of each sold, total revenue, and avg. There is also the site WoW Popular which data mines for the most popular builds (talents, glyphs, enchants...), I figured using both of these sources to divide my glyphs into two groups I could cut down on unnecessary posting.

My Glyph Process

Hello everyone, Flarbish here and today I’ll be going over my entire process for glyph selling from herbs to sales. I’ve only been selling glyphs for three months now but after following a lot of advice from Faid @goclockworkriot and some other sources I’ve worked out a process that I find to be very time effective.

Part 1: Herbs and Milling

    I know a lot of people usually like to outsource their milling but I do all of mine myself as I just don’t want the hassle involved with dealing with a miller. I’ll log onto my scribe at least once a day and do a TSM_Destroying search for each of the inks. I know a lot of people just would rather buy Blackfallow and trade down but if I’m getting my Blackfallow at 5g an ink and I come across some other low level herbs for less than that an ink there’s no reason not to buy them. I leave all my herbs in the mail until I’m ready to process them.

Hello World

Hey everyone, my name is Jordan and I go by the name Flarbish (pronounced with a soft a like with car). I'm in my 5th year of an honors computer science degree somewhere in Ontario, Canada. I've been lurking around the WoW-gold community for about 3 months now and I've been playing WoW since about mid WOTL.

I'm currently into transmog, Cata greens, PvP gear and the glyph market (my big money-maker). I play on a medium population server on the alliance side and here's a breakdown of my characters currently.

  • Gnome Mage (85): Alchemy, Enchanting
  • NElf Druid (85): Herbology, Mining
  • Gnome Priest (85): Inscription, Tailoring
  • Worgen Hunter (85): Leatherworking, Skinning
  • Gnome Rogue (74): Engineering, Alchemy
  • Gnome Warlock (72): Jewelcrafting, Alchemy
  • Gnome Death Knight (55): Tailoring, Enchanting
  • Gnome [Bank Toon] x2 

Here I hope to go over the strategies I use to make gold, maybe some step by step guides for my workflows and processes. I try to make things as simple as I can for myself and maximize the amount of AFK processing I can get done.

My Twitter is @wowFlarbish and I would appreciate all feedback and criticism!
