About a week and a half ago I mentioned that I had made some major changes in the way I handle my glyph business. Well, that post is finally here, sorry it's so late! To avoid this post getting really long I'm going to post it in multiple parts.. Here's Part One..
When I started out in the glyph business, I had two bank alts. One I did all of my purchasing on and miscellaneous selling, the other I just used for glyphs. Well, I soon realized that if you only have one alt that posts glyphs, bag space is going to be a major issue. It's also a PITA to spend that much time at the mailbox. I also pretty much had to stick my entire inventory on the AH to avoid having to make runs to the guild bank. (I work in Exodar.. the run from the AH to the bank is -not- cool.) Another problem was I would always miss out on "prime time" where everyone is either getting ready for raids or buying gems and enchants for their new gear. I would miss out on it because I was always on my main, doing the same thing lol.
When I heard that mmo-chumpion was going to release an inscription guide, I -knew- I had to make a change, and that change was to make 3 alts on my second account. The only thing that had me really hesitant was the inventory nightmare I would face without being able to use KTQue and Skillet since my Glyph maker was on one account and the bank alts would be on the other. I flirted with the idea of transfering my glyph maker to the second account but then I did some poking around with Altoholic and I saw they supported account sharing. Wait, really? You mean I can share my inventory and AH count between two ACCOUNTS? Hot damn! Altoholic is an -amazing- addon!
Three Goats and A Mule
I made three Space Goats to be my new glyph posters. A Shaman, a Paladin and a Mage. Then I setup my Bulkmail to mail the glyphs off in three sets. I chose these three sets because they are super easy for me to remember since they are the Tier token sets ;)
As you can see my Shaman gets the Warrior, Hunter, Shaman glyphs. My mage gets DK, Druid, Rogue, Mage and my Paladin gets Priest, Warlock, Paladin. So simple! In an hour my inventory looks like this:
The 4th bank alt, that I refer to as my "mule" sells everything other than glyphs and I do -all- of my buying on her.
I've been dual-boxing for almost two years now, I orginally made a second account because I wanted to be able to farm on my druid while raiding (inbetween attempts) and I wanted to be able to run myself through instances. Now I can spend a ton of time at the AH without feeling guilty about not doing achievements and I can raid while keeping up with undercuts! ^.^
