I see a few markets I need to get into but I do not have the patterns/professions to work them in bulk. I know I can get others to make that stuff, but I'm behind on my own crafting. Then I saw someone asking for gold in trade.
He was asking nice enough and was max level. I asked him what his professions were. One of them he linked was one that I did not have and covered a market that I was not in. I know I could have set him up to make what I needed but I didn't want to bother with that. What I did instead was offer him a deal.
I told him I could show him a good way to make gold if he agreed to pay me 10% of his profits for the first week. Told him we would use the honor system. He was a bit confused at first what I was talking about. So I explained it again. He only had to pay me if he made gold so if it did not work, he did not have to pay me anything. I also expected the odds of getting any gold to be slim.
The next day I log in on that character I was talking with him on and he whispered me. He was so excited that it was working. It worked exactly like I said it would and he was pumped. He told me gold was coming my way at the end of the week. I told him to go make me a lot of gold.
After the week is up, I'll let you know if he got any gold to me.
