Gold Making: Darkmoon Daggermaw

Recommended Posts

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.

      We're in week 11 of the Sepulcher raid, so it's high time we switched our focus over to Mythic, with over 126 guilds having finished the raid at maximum difficulty. As we move to Mythic we're also taking a look at the individual boss charts, so you get a better idea of what's happening where (and we're also still covering Heroic at the end as well).
      Mythic
      95th Percentile
      We don't have a comparison point for the high percentiles in Mythic, since it's the first week of the switch, but we can compare it to last week's Heroic chart. Destruction is the very top of the pile in Mythic (and you can read about why in last week's entry), both in the high percentiles and overall, but Frost DK is doing just as well as it is in Heroic, actually beating out Demonology in the higher difficulty. Marksmanship is also in a much better position here, and Retribution is especially benefiting from the increase in difficulty, as it's 8 spots higher than in Heroic!

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      We do have a direct week-to-week comparison in the all percentiles chart, and here we see Demonology actually climb up a spot and take 2nd place away from Survival. Retribution actually falls a little as Havoc takes its place in 9th and Windwalker pushes it out of the top 10, while Feral nose-dives down 9 spots towards the bottom.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Halondrus
      Moving on to the individual bosses, Halondrus is where Enhancement shines most, closely followed by fellow melees Assassination and Feral.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Anduin Wrynn
      Anduin isn't quite the main reason Destruction is doing so well, but he's definitely contributing, as Survival and Frost get their fill here as well.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Rygelon
      The Destruction booster himself, as you can see Rygelon's Scouring Tithe interaction brings the Warlocks to the very top in the overall rankings, with the VERY few Feral Druids popping up to the top here as well.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      The Jailer
      The Jailer is more in favor of the other Warlock flavor, as Demo is making its name here, while Ferals gather in a more respectable number to show that the Rygelon placement wasn't necessarily a fluke.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      While it's relegated to the bottom of the post, Heroic is still very relevant, with much higher numbers of players giving its data a lot of validity and credibility. This week we see a new No.1 in the overall bracket, as Demonology takes over from Survival and Shadow bumps Enhancement down one, with Balance doing the same to Marksmanship.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, for a DPS tier list you can go here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs. You can also check out our Sepulcher raid guides.

      After a long time of only being available via the Overwolf app, CurseForge has announced that it is now once again available in standalone form! The CurseForge addon manager app Alpha is now available and you can download it over on their site (but be careful to click the right link):

      This arrives as a reaction to a prolonged period of some players voicing their dissatisfaction over the client only being available via Overwolf, and was revealed together with a larger announcement of the CurseForge API being released  (you can read the full version here), and here is the relevant section:
      We take community feedback seriously. Many of the community members voiced their preference for a leaner approach to managing mods. We’ve taken this into consideration and developed a standalone version of the CurseForge app on Windows, based on Electron, which you can download here.
      As with the Linux version, it currently supports World of Warcraft only. We plan to keep this version in feature parity with the Overwolf version in the future. Please note, this is fresh from the oven and currently on Alpha.
      If you have any questions or feedback about this, please join our Discord and let us know.
      This was initially spotted by scytherz over on reddit, and you can check out that thread for plenty of comments on the new app's functionality, relative light weight, and other details players have tested.

      We're looking at a strange bug that affects some proto-drake mounts on live servers.
      Many players are reporting issues with their proto-drake mounts on Reddit. The first report is from 5 days ago. The bug affects Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake, which for some reason, no longer flies in the middle of the screen, and its run animation is twice the speed of other proto-drake mounts.

      Apparently, Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake is experiencing the same issues while Reins of the Ironbound Proto-Drake and Reins of the Rusted Proto-Drake work as they should.

      The second report is from 3 months ago and showcases the strange mount animation. It claims that all proto-drake mounts except for those from Ulduar are affected by the bug.

      Did you experience this strange bug on live servers?

      Patch 9.2.5 appears to be the first update to the game where major story elements remain heavily encrypted. In the latest PTR update, Blizzard shipped an encrypted 9.2.5 splash screen, which is something they've never done before.
      Players are prompted with a splash screen when they log in to the game for the first time when an update goes live. It shows you what's new in the patch. Here's the splash screen for Patch 9.2.

      The splash screen for Patch 9.2.5 was shipped in the latest build, but it is encrypted and cannot be previewed. Maybe it has something to do with the mysterious Stormwind and Orgrimmar updates or the Forsaken (spoiler alert).
      However, the splash screen text for Patch 9.2.5 is available for preview but contains no spoilers.
      New in Season 4! Shadowlands Season 4 - Earn new rewards in Mythic Keystone dungeons and PvP. New Mythic+ Dungeons - Experience iconic legacy dungeons with Mythic affixes! Fated Raids - Return to Shadowlands raids for a new challenge and new rewards.

      Reddit user nazranramlee noticed something interesting while visiting their local hospital in Malaysia. The TV was showing the Mists of Pandaria trailer on repeat.

      Apparently, this isn't specific to just one hospital in the country.
      Reddit user aimlessart saw the same trailer playing over and over in another hospital they have been visiting for over 6 years, claiming they both might have been set up by the same contractor who thought the Mists of Pandaria trailer looked visually appealing for entertainment purposes.
      The contractor most likely never bothered to update the visuals again, which is why the TVs are constantly running the same Mists of Pandaria trailer while people wait in queue.
