Again, no huge sales this week, but if you have some patience, i want to direct you to a thread i made about 2 months ago, in regards to merchanting dyes
Hot color packs are on sale again, and while at first glance, they are nothing special, they actually represent one of the best day to day profit margins in the game, providing you have patience
At current gold prices on RT, these cost about 280k per.
now of the 33 possible dyes you can get, my last study into this found that better then 75% of the dyes you get will sell for over this 280k amount, and a few break 1 or 2 million per dye
Based on the fairly small sample size i did last time, i found that 40-60% profit margin is easily obtainable, even while undercutting everyone else on my server. Even if the last few crappy colors you have to dump at a big loss, by the time you sell 50-60% of your stock, you should already be in the black. The junk colors you can just dump in the AH on a daily basis until they sell.
I am doing a bigger sample size this time, as 500-1000 dyes may be more of a pain and not worth the time, but the small sample i did before worked out a very nice
Just a disclaimer. I would not do this with less then 100 dyes. 100 dyes on average should net you 9-10 black/white/red dyes, which really pad your profit margins. With small amounts, you should still make a profit, but if you run into a string of bad luck, it may not be worth the time
