Gold Making: Darkmoon Daggermaw

9 posts in this topic

The Darkmoon Daggermaw will allow you to purchase a new water based mount in 7.1 - and as we know, mounts mean gold!

Introduction

You may or may not be aware that in 7.1 there will be a new mount made available at the Darkmoon Faire.

Darkwater SkateDarkwater Skate is a Bind on Pickup mount sold by the fishing vendor Galissa Sundew.  It is an aquatic based mount and although it is BoP it is still a gold making opportunity. 

On the current PTR the mounts requires 500x Darkmoon DaggermawDarkmoon Daggermaw.  These can be fished up in the waters surrounding the Darkmoon Faire island and are used for various other items (such as the Faded Treasure MapFaded Treasure Map and Translucent ShellTranslucent Shell).  The most important thing to note is that these fish are fully tradeable.

Making gold through Fishing

Fishing has always been good for gold making and for those that enjoy it, it can be a great way to pass the time while making some decent gold.  Throw on some music, watch Netflix or even tune in to a stream *cough*.  Fishing provides a lot of materials required for cooking raid food so if you have never really fished before it is worth giving it a go.  If you hate fishing then feel free to skip to the section below.

The Darkmoon Daggermaw

The skill requirement needed to successfully fish the daggermaws has changed.  I'm not sure of the exact values but my "new" main toon only has a skill of 250 fishing (no bonuses) and was just catching junk items.  My old main which has 700 skill was able to successfully fish on each cast with no fishing skill bonuses at all.

Just remember there are a lot of fishing skill bonuses available (from bait like Worm SupremeWorm Supreme to equip-able items like Hightfish CapHightfish Cap) if you are struggling to get a daggermaw on each and every cast.  As mentioned above fishing can be quite lucrative in general, so investing time in your character is not a bad thing!

You can fish 100 or so in about half an hour.  This number can greatly be increased if you are lucky to fish up a number of Bloated ThresherBloated Thresher.  These contain 5-10 daggermaw each.

But I HATE fishing!

As mentioned in my last article "3 Simple Steps to increase your gold" I encouraged players NOT to get involved in gold making methods that they wouldn't enjoy.  The same goes for this technique.  If you hate fishing then don't fish!  There could still be some opportunities to make some gold just in the buying / flipping of the Darkmoon DaggermawDarkmoon Daggermaw themselves.  Prices will vary from realm to realm so I won't be able to give exact figures of what is a "good price" to flip just a reminder that caution is always required when investing in any item.  

As it is a Darkmoon Faire item (therefore not available all the time), it can be quite lucrative if you time your purchases / sales accordingly (buy during the faire then sell when the faire isn't available).

 @GrahransWoWGold (a regular viewer in my stream and another avid gold maker) has been managing to buy and flip them VERY successfully over the past few months.  Take a look at his purchases and resales:

As you can see the last 7 days of sales has been crazy for him!  It's also worth noting that although the bulk were bought by one person there were a number of players that bought exactly 500 from him (coincidence? I think not :P)

There has been reports of players selling each of the fish for upwards of 200g, so it could turn out to be a crazy money maker!

Wrap Up

I hope you've enjoyed this guide and whether you manage to fish or flip there should be room for some decent gold making (or getting the mount pretty easily for yourselves!)  There's still a few days left before Darkmoon Faire ends this month so grab that fishing pole and keep an eye on the auction house!  If you need to skill up your fishing make sure you do it in the downtime between faires so you are ready for November.

So tl;dr buy all Darkmoon DaggermawDarkmoon Daggermaw prior to 7.1. I've not been in the Fishing market for several expansion now, what's the reason of people buying the fish aside of the mount right now? Just to stockpile and resell later?

Let me have a look at my realm, will report back with results.

Well no don't just buy them all - there's going to be a lot of players looking for people to flip and sell too so you always need caution as people will be trying to stick you with their over priced ones :P

25g per is good - I sold some overnight for ~80g each just to test the water ( pun intended)

I'll be fishing more later on.

Took me about 2 hours or so for the above.  Obviously buying and flipping is potentially more gold for less work but doing both is worthwhile.

I was actually able to grab 10K for 12g/pc on the AH, now they are like 26g/pc. Fun times.

      Just when you thought they were gone, the hotfixes make their comeback! Today we get some Tol Dagor nerfs, some fixes and improvements for Island Expeditions, including some achievements now being account-wide and a brand new World Quest to win one! There's also the usual PvP and quest fixes, as well as another Heart of Azeroth tweak.
      September 21 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Tol Dagor Overseer Korgus’ Incendiary Rounds’ damage and Blast Rounds’ pushback decreased by 25%. Island Expeditions
      A new world quest has been added to win one Island Expedition. Click on the map and set sail for adventure! Some Island Expedition achievements have been made account-wide. Resolved additional issues that could prevent players from gaining progress in Island Expeditions for the weekly quest “Azerite for the Horde / Azerite for the Alliance”. Items
      Fixed bugs that were preventing Truffles in Stormsong Valley from behaving as expected. Heart of Azeroth Ablative Shielding is no longer reduced by Stagger. Player versus Player
      The Weekly Quest "Something Different" can now be completed by participating in Shado-pan Showdown, as intended. “Something Different” now grants a 340 item level Dread Gladiator piece of gear from the Brawl Footlocker. Players who have already turned in “Something Different” this week can now complete it a second time. World Quests
      Fixed an issue where the "Pest Problem" did not count towards the Storm's Wake emissary. There are now a greater number of Ancient Texts that are “Past Due”. Previous Hotfixes

      A lot of Azerite trait talk today as Blizzard have announced a second round of tuning, focusing on tanks and healers, coming with the next reset. We also got a blue post commenting on the imbalance in the traits and the Mythic+ problem with Azerite armor not being available.

      There's also some PvP class tuning coming next week which you can check out here.
      Trait Tuning (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, we intend to make some targeted adjustments to Azerite Traits for tanks and healers. Here's what that currently looks like:
      Blessed Sanctuary bonus increased by 10%. Burst of Life healing increased by 20%. Craggy Bark bonus increased by 15%. Dauntless Divinity block increased by 20%. Depth of the Shadows healing increased by 20%. Ephemeral Recovery mana increased by 15%. Gory Regeneration healing increase increased by 15%. Judicious Defense absorption increased by 10%. Masterful Instincts bonuses increased by 10%. Permeating Glow bonus increased by 15%. Reinforced Plating Strength increased by 10%. Revel in Pain absorption increased by 20%. Savior trigger threshold increased to 50% health (was 35%). Soothing Waters healing increased by 10%.
      You'll see the final adjustments in our hotfixes update post on Tuesday.
       
      Trait imbalance and M+ (source)
      Couple things:
      We agree that the trait imbalance is a real problem right now. We made a bunch of tuning adjustments last week, and have more planned for the very near future (primarily focused on buffing underperforming traits). We see this as the source of most of the frustrations with the system; if the delta between your best and worst traits wasn't so big, it'd be less frustrating when a piece of Azerite armor doesn't have your best trait on it.
      We also agree that the Mythic+ Azerite Armor situation isn't ideal. However, we need to be careful with how we award Azerite Armor through M+. Right now, easier access to Azerite Armor is one of the main advantages that raiding has over gearing exclusively through Mythic+, and we want to keep some additional benefit there as compensation for the extra effort and coordination needed to organize a raid team. That's is why we're hesitant to do something like add a guaranteed piece of Azerite Armor to the weekly chest - it'd be too lucrative.
      But like I said, we do agree that the current setup can be frustrating. We're looking for better options.

      Here come Method and Limit's kill videos! We've already seen Method's kill, but now we get to see the multi-pov edition, showing off all aspects of the roles in the fight. We also get to see the raider reactions, since most of them streamed so the nerdscreams also have a video component this time! Also, keep in mind Limit's kill was done without the benefit of the extra reset's worth of loot from Mythic Uldir. Unfortunately Exorsus have said they wouldn't be making one of their signature videos for this raid, but will be for the next one.


      Check out the top 2 guilds' multi-pov kill videos for Uldir's final boss.
