My understanding is that the loot tables of mobs are designed to average at a certain value. So to get a head of the game, the goal is to get drops that you can sell on the AH.

So aim for cloth/mote drops for farming. I'm finding that a stack of netherwave is selling around 3g on the AH at the moment. As for primals, Earth sell for 3-4g, Water 15-22g (22g is quite rare), Air/Fire - 25-30g, Mana 15-20g. Primal Mights generally sell less than the mats. Better off selling the Primal mats (vs the might) unless you are a master transmuter.

Also the mats for Scryer/Aldor rep do well to. I can't recall the exact price ranges, but from memory Arcane Tomes ones are 7-10g, and the Marg of Sarg ones are 50s each.

so in conclusion farm and sell rinse and repeat :D

1300 gold to go ;)

Daily quests definitely help and every time I complete another one of the 20+ group quests I seem to have collected while levelling... CHA-CHING!

Don't sell netherweave if 3g is the best you can get. If you make [item]Netherweave Bandage[/item] they will vendor for 3g a stack... and won't cost you lost deposits or AH cuts. ie, if you put netherweave up at 3g, you will actually LOSE money :P

So either hang onto the cloth until you can get a better price... or make it into bandages (NOT heavy.. just standard) and vendor.

I think a lot of people who play healing classes think, "why would I need first aid? I can heal myself" but bandages are still very valuable to healers.

Or for times when the price of netherweave plunges to 3g :P

Just another suggestion.

If you are doing the BEM dailies. I've known people to trash Apexis Shards as they can't be vendored. If you don't need them - convert them to the Unstable flasks, and vendor the flasks for about 1.15g for a stack of 5 unstable flasks. (10 shards = 1 unstable flask) So that's a rough conversion of 2.3silver per shard.

Yeah I know it isn't much, but it's something.

Another scheme that's working out quite well for me at the moment.

I farm a stack of either Netherbloom or Nightmare Vine.

I buy arcane dust off the AH for about 30g a stack. I get a friendly enchanter to make me 20x superior wizard oil or 20x superior mana oil. The friendly enchanter keeps 2 for him/herself. I sell the 18 of them on the AH for around 10g each.

8g - vials
30g - opporunity cost of the herbs
90g - cost of arcane dust
----
128g - Total creation cost

180g - Sale revenue

9g - AH cut

I'm left with around 40g profit, and the friendly enchanter is left with 20g of oil for 6silver in postage and <10mins of his/her time.

Mind you I still have the risk of selling, and it takes about 1 week to sell 18x oils. You also have to be patient is getting the arcane dust for 30g, as a lot of my bids at 30g don't always succeed.
