When you go to a vendor, do you just flip through the various pages of items and not really look at what is for sale in depth? If so, you are costing yourself a lot of gold! If you pay special attention at the vendors that you go to, there may be limited items on the very last page of the merchandise that they are offered. You can typically locate these items by searching the names and determining if there is a number by them or not. If you see a number beside the item name, this is an item that you can purchase a limited quantity of. For example, if the number is a three that means that you can purchase three of that particular item. Whenever you see these items, be quick to grab them up so that you can increase the amount of coins that you have in World of Warcraft.
You should create a special bag just for gathering items that are limited in supply. Once you gather a bunch of them up, go to the auction house and put them up for sale. It is best to get the Auctioneer add-on to assist you when you do this. If you have this add-on, all you have to do is hit "scan" and then place the cursor over the items that you want to sell. When you do, you will see how much each one is going for. I like to set my starting price just a tad lower than the first result that comes up when I search for that item, and then raise the buy now price to about what the third or fourth search result is selling theirs for. You will often find that even though you have the same price, people will buy from you because you have the lowest starting price. Doing this can earn you many, many gold in one day's time!
The main reason that you are able to make money from limited supply WoW items is that people simply do not feel that they have the time, or do not want to make the time to go look for the stuff all over the place. They would rather just come to the Auction House, pay a higher rate for convenience, and buy the item that they are seeking. This means that you can actually mark up an item for virtually anything, and in the end, you will have a buyer! If you want to succeed in the economy of World of Warcraft, knowing how to make gold with items that have a limited supply with vendors is a wonderful way to do so!
