“Anexia is so rich, she has hired Scrouge McDuck’s lifeguards.”
“ANEXXIA is so rich that Chuck Norris goes to see her for a loan.”

Hey Guys,

I started listening to mmo reporter since the launch of Rift and love you guys. I am now a total SWTOR addict so of course I have been listening to the TOR reporter podcast. Anyway for the past few week I keep hearing about “moneybags Annexxia”. I play a dark side sith juggernaut (Dakarius on the Jedi Covenant server which is the 2nd or 3rd highest pop server in the game) and my crafting professions are the same as hers (Synthweaving, underworld trading and archeology) and all of them are lvl 400.

I have always been an auction house guru and am not doing too bad in TOR but nothing compared to the master of the GTM, the female Donald Trump of the galaxy, The Calvin Klein of Synthweaving. Im Currently bouncing between 500k and 800k credits. I would love to know Annexxia’s strategy for generating Oprah level amounts of credits?…. Wow just pictured a cybernetic Oprah with full sith corruption.

From what I’m hearing my strategy is similar to hers. Farm the high level matts, craft high level gear, sell standard gear for next to nothing and sell the augmented gear for 75k to 100k a pop depending on the market. I’m am only selling one augmented item or so every 2 days. Nobody is buying lvl 50 non-augmented customer gear even at 3.5k each My server always has anywhere from 100 to 180 people on the fleet during prime time. Im now trying to sell purple quality gear, mixing in various levels and types of gear. I’ve tried augmented Battlemaster and even the currently pointless warhero gear and still poor results.

Please help me oh queen of the GTM, what am I doing so wrong? Do I need to be crafting more mid level gear or selling more matts? What can I do? It’s hard out there for a Juggernaut.

Love you guys, keep up the good work.
Dak
