Progress, a Complaint

I’m just shy of 5k right now, which puts my 2 week total at about 4300g, which is pretty good. I’ve said it before, I’m never going to be a 10k a day guy, but I’m making steady progress and the only time I have a down day is if I buy a ton of mats and don’t get everything reposted. I’m using belt buckles and JC/disenchanting for the vast majority of my income, although as I level the druid I’ve been selling off netherweave bags. I’ve built enough of a cushion now that if anyone severely undercuts my buckles I just buy them out and repost them for a small profit, but one that allows my inventory to keep moving. I don’t do it all the time, but if I’ll make 5-6g from the deal I’ll go ahead and buy them out. If it’s less than that, I just wait on the lower priced buckles to sell.

Which leads me to my complaint or criticism. So many people say, “I don’t have any money” or “I don’t know how to make money”. Well, as the druid is a skinner/leatherworker I can tell you that there are a shocking number of people out there that don’t loot the grays off of the mobs they kill. I mean, people, this is like leaving money there on the ground. Little piles of silver that apparently you can’t be bothered to carry. I don’t understand the thought process. Do people think that they need to conserve bag space in case they get something better to drop? Or do they think that selling off grays is too big a pain? While it would be nice for me to be able to skin all these mobs, I’m really not that worried about it. I’ll get my leather eventually. I’m mostly sad for people that pass up free money (you were killing the mob anyway, right?)

Not only loot my grays. Since I'm an engineer/miner I loot other people corpses as well. Free money is just that free money. Since I have Jeeves I drop him once an hour clean my bags, drop items in the bank. With Molle I mail my mule goods.

It's surprising how quickly that grey trash can build up. I use an addon called AutoProfit to vendor it quickly. It puts a little button in the top right of the vendor window. One click and it's gone...and I'm a little bit richer :)
