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.

      Well, that didn't take long! It seems you can't keep the WoW secret finders in the dark for too long, as they've already broken through and managed to obtain the mount! Warcraft Secrets and the secrets discord were hard at work the past few days and today finally bore fruit as they pushed through all the colored crystal monocles and found their way to the Court of Stars.

      From there it's a whole lot of petting kittens and purring, followed by phase-shifting platforms to navigate, and then the goal itself:

      While the very end of the guide hasn't been updated yet, it will be very soon so head on over to Warcraft Secrets and check out the full guide, and you might be riding this crazy thing soon as well.
      And, of course, congratulations to everyone that helped out in the endeavor, it was an amazing performance by all involved!

      The folks over at Warcraft Secrets are hard at work, with The Hivemind mount still eluding them. But that may not be the case for long, as some secrets have already been revealed and a whole lot of clues found. As a reminder, the mount is presumed to be multi-person, and each person on it speeds it up by 10%, so it's one of the most unique mounts to come to WoW in a long time. In any case, there's colored crystal monocles and a lot of puzzle games involved, as well as everyone's favorite shopkeeper Griftah, who starts the whole thing off with the Talisman of True Treasure Tracking which then leads you to Vashj'ir, Skyreach and the Halls of Origination to start with.
      This one's definitely going to be a tricky hunt and you can check out the full guide for all the parts discovered so far and even help out with the search over at Warcraft-secrets.com.

      And, of course, as always, you can also join the Secret Finding Discord to share your findings and get really into the secrets and mysteries of WoW.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas recently answered some Battle for Azeroth questions submitted by the Greek WoW community before the expansion came out and here's a summary of the Q&A. We learn more about the removal of Master Loot, Warforging/Titanforging and the stat squish system.
      Q&A Highlights
      The team is excited about Mythic+, but at the same time they realize the incentive to run Mythic+ content with a lower barrier of entry has somewhat affected raiding in general and they're going to continue adding new benefits that are distinctly compelling to make sure raiding is still popular. They wanted to disable gear swapping in Mythic dungeons sooner but felt like doing it in the middle of an expansion in Legion would be bad. An entire Mythic+ dungeon is viewed in a lot of ways just like a single boss encounter, meaning no gear/talent swapping even when you drop out of combat over the course of the run. They're always looking for each spec to have a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses in PvP and that's hard in a game with 36 specializations. If you're Class is highly mobile, it's going to have less survivability. On the opposite side of the spectrum, you can expect to be tankier if you have less mobility. The team mainly focuses on increasing strengths as opposed to mitigating weaknesses. The alternative of always trying to bolster weaknesses leads to a state where everyone's kind of average at everything and that's a less interesting game to play in their opinion. With work done to the stat squish system in Battle for Azeroth, future stat squishes should be fairly easy to execute. They've overhauled every single spell and creature from 2004 through 2018 to complement the new system. No stat squish is needed for at least one expansion. Stat squishes are there to prevent numbers from spiraling out of control when there's no gameplay value out of it. Paladins and Druids in the Legion environment already bring plenty of utility, so they decided not to bring back Blessing of Kings and Mark of the Wild in the end. They're going to add more abilities to Classes whenever there's a need for differentiation. Years ago, loot was much harder to come by. Over the years, the game moved away from a space where you just kill a boss or run some content week after week and never see the item you want. Drop rates are now higher across the board, so you're effectively spending less time getting the item you want. Warforging and Titanforging keep some level of interest and potential growth in those repeated clears and create the opportunity for everything to happen, giving you more incentive to continue raiding the same tier. Sco got a Warforged socketed Polearm halfway through progress that was a giant upgrade for him on his tank that made an immediate difference. In a world where loot is more common, the rare opportunities to have these amazing items retains some moments of excitement. You're much better off doing a high Mythic+ rather than clearing old content for a small chance to get an upgrade. This was a problem especially in Legion, where players went back to clear Emerald Nightmare for a chance to get Legendaries or Titanforged versions of Class sets. That wasn't healthy for the game and they decided to move away from that. The benefits of removing Master Loot have outweighed the downsides so far and there are three things: On the lower end of the organization spectrum, there are guilds that go through trials and historically in the Master Loot world, guilds had very strict control of loot and trials were not allowed to get any loot. For the time and effort spent, the trial would get literally nothing out of it if the guild decided to not make the player a part of the roster. On the high end of the spectrum, we've seen top guilds run the same raid over and over to funnel gear to specific mains. Split raiding made it difficult to balance encounters and provide a challenge for Method and other guilds while still being a fun and satisfying progression experience for the majority of Mythic guilds in weeks to follow. Method's item level during the first week of Mythic would be higher than what typical guilds would have to work with a month later. It worked well in Uldir. Bosses like Mythrax, G'huun and even Vectis were challenges for top guilds without needing massive nerfs. Finally, it lets the team itemize in a somewhat different way. When Master Loot was an option, they had to design loot tables around the possibility of Master Loot, so very niche items (useful only to a handful of people) would drop even though there would be nobody in the raid to wear them. They think the raid composition in place since Warlords (LFR/Normal/Heroic/Mythic) is the right for World of Warcraft. LFR/Normal are serving totally different audiences. LFR is not a social or progress experience. Normal difficulty is for friends and family groups. In Mists, Normal difficulty was similar to Heroic today, groups found LFR unsatisfying and Normal as it was then to be too difficult, that's why Normal exists today in its current form.

      We have some incoming class tuning next week, with some flat % buffs for Feral Druids and Frost Mages, applied to both PvE and PvP.
      Class Tuning for December 18 (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, starting on December 18 in American realms, we’re focusing on shoring up a couple of specs that fell a little behind with Tides of Vengeance:
      Druid
      Feral Damage of all abilities increased by 7%. Mage
      Frost Damage of all spells increased by 3%. Both of these adjustments will apply to PvP activities as well.
