Between WOTLK and Cataclysm the whole glyph market changed completely, we went from a commodity market where glyphs were constantly being bought up as players glyphed for different pvp/pve situations to a market where the sales are now much lower as each character needs to buy glyphs only once but prices are higher.
On this blog I share all my gold making strategies and which ones are generating the most income. This used to be an easy task as I was able to export my beancounter data into excel then use my excel mastery to sort it out in pivot tables/filters to make some pretty graphs and go about disecting the numbers in a post.
Unfortunately my previous method of exporting to excel doesn’t work anymore this has become more difficult, however I recently stumbled on an addon called My Sales which has been collecting data on my glyph sales in the past 2 weeks or so.
I hope that by seeing a list of my best selling glyphs you can ensure you are crafting these as well and pulling in profits, another method of figuring out which glyphs to craft is to use www.wowpopular.com and only crafting the most popular glyphs (although they could be the ones with the most undercutting and competition too)
Highest Profit Glyphs in Cataclysm
The first figure I’d like to share is which glyphs have given me the most profit per glyph, or the glyphs that sell the highest per unit on average. It would be safe to assume that these glyphs are the ones with the most demand and not much competition, or the current supply isn’t enough to cover the demand.
As the list shows above, my highest profitable glyphs are Glyph of Shockwave, Glyph of Hammer of Righteous, and Glyph of Ice Barrier. These glyphs are selling for 166-179g each, and given my costs are 55g each, I’m pulling in a profit of 111 – 123g each sale.
Best Selling Glyphs in Cataclysm
In this next list I’ll sort my glyph sales by quantity sold, keep in mind that I don’t sell any glyphs below 58g. When I look at the glyphs on this list I have to pay certain attention to the ones that sell in very high quantities and a high price, these are glyphs that are at risk of going out of stock and I may not be posting enough at a time to reap in the maximum profit.
Glyph of Word of Glory and Glyph of Berserk are glyphs that seem to sell consistently high and I sell a lot of them so I’ll take a look and make sure I’m not selling out of them before having the chance to post up more stock in my next cycle.
Glyphs that Earn Me The Most Gold
The last list we are going to look at are the glyphs that I’ve earned the most revenue from, so this is a combination of the quantity sold and the money per sale.
This list shows an example of something like Glyph of Explosive Shot – in 6th/7th place on the other charts (neither near my highest profit per sale nor highest quantity sold) you can see that it ranks 2nd at the glyph that’s earned me the most revenue.
