The 80 20 Rule - It will make you OVER 9000 Gold!

Many of you have probably heard of the 80 20 rule before. In a nutshell, it says that you get 80% of your results from 20% of your effort… which means that 20% of your results come from 80% of your effort.

The thing that sets rich scribes apart from the scribes who don’t make much are the efficiencies that we gain along the way. For example, in about 30 min time I can craft and post half stacks of every glyph in the game, where most other newer scribes will take an hour or so to figure out which glyphs will sell the best and create and post just those.

Focus this week on where the 80% of your results are coming from… then focus on putting more than 20% of your effort here.

  1. I don't really understand your point, but if we were to apply your 80/20 rule (which is stupid, but still), we'd end up with "80% of glyphs give you 20% of profit so stop crafting them". It only takes 1 hour ONCE to figure out what to craft/sell, and then it takes 5 times less to craft for 80% of the profit.
