In my boredom in waiting for 9.1 one of the things I decided to try was to obtain the items needed to purchase a lot of the new Baubleworm battlepets on release day.Ruby BaublewormTopaz BaublewormTurquoise Baubleworm
The Topaz, Ruby and Turquoise Baubleworm’s are purchased in exchange for three different grey items from a variety of sources. I purchased quite a lot of these component items at the default auction house listing price <2g but I also farmed quite a bit on both the EU and US. All of the pets were bought on Draenor EU and Thrall US and transferred to other servers via the pet journal. On the day of 9.1 release, I had each of these pets listed on over 125 servers.
Now I’m more than aware these numbers are fairly small in comparison to what a lot of people (including myself) have made from crafter’s mark or legendries in gold value. I did however find it useful as I did all the work for this during the last 5-6 weeks of 9.0 so gold making opportunities during this time were really low. I do also have quite a bit of stock still up on the auction house so overtime these numbers will increase but one month since patch release seems a reasonable time to have a look at how it’s gone.
Sales figures after one month:
Ruby Baubleworm Sales
Topaz Baubleworm Sales
Turquoise Baubleworm Sales
p any extra cheap component grey items that popped up even when I knew these were on servers, I would never be buying the pets on. Initially I used these to massively increase the regionvalue on the base items such as The Stoppable Force. Leading up to the release of 9.1 I had over 50% of items such as The Stoppable Force
across the whole EU and as you can see from its value below, I managed to manipulate the price considerably. I was not sure if pushing the price of the component items would even affect the value of the pets when 9.1 released but it was fun to play with anyway.

Once 9.1 was released and I had got a lot of pet sales I started throwing the spare components I had bought for literally nothing at 20k a piece and I managed to get quite a few sales. I could potentially have sold these for more but I just wanted to liquidate stock quickly as I knew there would be eventually an influx. It did however top up my profits from this little project as you can see from examples from a couple of the component items listed below.

I had a lot of fun with this even the farming part I did not mind so much and I have never farmed anything since I got Bruto 14 months ago. That being said I wont be returning to farming again anytime soon. Hope you enjoyed the read 😊.
