    Jewelcrafting

    Jewelcrafting is a new addition to World of Warcraft that came with the Burning Crusade expansion. Jewelcrafting if used well can be a big gold earner for a character in the game. There is plenty that can be made for a Jewelcrafter from the lowest levels onwards. The key is to know what to make and sell when.

    A low level Jewelcrafter can make plenty of money by not being too greedy and selling the smaller rings and amulets that they can make as they progress in skill. Always be aware of what your making is valued at. All items average value can be looked up on the different Warcraft search sites, like www.wowhead.com. By knowing how much the average value of what you are selling is, you can offer it at discounted rates or sell in the trade channels knowing exactly what you doing.

    As you progress through your Jewelcrafting skill always keep an eye on what is selling in the auction house and for how much. If you can make the things that are selling well then make as many as you can and add them in yourself. If you see things in the auction house that you know can sell for more, don’t be afraid to buy it yourself and sell it for the higher price. It is little tricks like this that will give you that extra gold when you need it later in the game.

    At high levels makes gems for socketed items is where a Jewelcrafter’s skill really comes into its own. The ability for a Jewelcrafter to take the different gems that are dropped as loot throughout the game and turn them into gems with different abilities can be a great gold earner for a high level Jewelcrafter. There are loads of socketed items of all different types in the game, and their ability to be customized with the use of different gems means that all people with socketed items will need the services. There are addons available to assist a Jewelcrafter with selling there services. Work hard to get your maximum skill when you’re getting close, a skilled Jewelcrafter will always be sort after in World of Warcraft.

    WoTLK Expansion

    With the expansion comes a whole new set of jewels, cuts, patterns, and more. So, it's only natural that the higher level you become in jewelcrafting, the better items you can make. Well, the real gold doesn't actually lie in making items, it actually lies in cutting gems. There are constantly tells in Trade chat for JC's to cut gems and make sure that you answer them all the time if you can cut the gem or item that they are asking for. You will find that by cutting gems for sale on the AH, you will also make a ton of cash - as the vast majority of the good items from Northrend are socketed, and those players will be looking for gems to upgrade their items to make their stats even better.
