The WoW Index

After a few weeks of collecting data in the Market Watcher addon, I finally have some decent charts for the WoW Index. The great thing about taking a look at this kind of data is to see when it's best to buy, sell and farm. Looking at Saronite ore, we can see that weekends are definitely the best time to either farm if you can, or buy and prospect for gems. Another thing the graphs show is that since the patch and Arena season 6, the demand for Infinite dust and Dragonfin has gone up at a steady and moderate rate.
If you're having trouble figuring out what day is best to sell or buy or what to focus on during the weekend, install Market Watcher and scan every day until you get a good 2 weeks worth of data. Being able to visualize what's happening with a market can be a great way to figure out what to do.


  1. That is an awesome addon. I think Chris especially would appreciate this one. Did you feel there is anything missing from this addon that you felt would have been beneficial?

  2. It would be really great if I could mouse over a point on the graph to get the exact number instead of having to guess if it's showing 75 silver or 80 silver. I don't recall the author going into great detail explaining the other lines on the chart like Simple Moving Average. I'll see if there's more information on how that number is calculated.
