I have spent quite a bit (a lot actually) getting my crafting to around 40th level
I find that the only purpose is to upgrade the gear on my own characters and am unsure what the market is for unbound items to be sold.
Are there certain items that sell more than others (ie do people pay a lot for ML 1 gear that would not be possible for a few or several levels?) is there an idea on what gear is worthwhile and not to sell?
I could take a stab at it and see some items on the AH selling for quite a bit but are they actually selling for that price or is someone just putting them up hoping they will sell?
I am ideally looking for advice from anyone who has made money crafting and then selling on the AH (ideally at the level I am at) and if possible what advice can you share about the best way for me to make money that way?
P.S. I am finding that I am getting zero drops of essences on my alternative characters with 0 crafting, does it only start dropping after a certain level? Should I get them to do a bit of crafting first to make the game think they need essences? --- on my Sorceror, he was getting essences on Collaborator without fail but this new toon is 3rd level and not getting a single essence
