20 Days of Gold Making Day 9

This is in response to the post 20 Days of Gold Making – Community Idea from Auction House Addict.

Question #9 is: What’s your favorite niche market & why?

My favorite niche market is probably Drums of Forgotten Kings. It’s my favorite both because I have effectively zero competition on my server and it was one of the first items I “discovered” completely on my own. I discovered it while trying to find a use for Icy Dragonscale. I don’t sell a ton of them (25 in the last 30 days), but I do sell them consistently. Since I am usually the only seller, I set the price at 275g which is above the average according to The Undermine Journal. In the past 30 days, I have seen 6 other drums on the AH, 4 for 50g, and 2 for 10g, all well under the AH cost of the mats. Of course I bought them and resold them at my normal price.

This is another question where my relative inexperience makes my answer maybe not so compelling to the more experienced gold makers. I’m not sure if this is a good niche market as it is the only market I am currently in that I would consider “niche.”

    It’s a great niche market Jason! A timely reminder that some older items still have uses & therefore value. I never sold many when they were current but I do have a stash of icy dragonscale so yay! Now I can get rid of them profitably :)
