Flipping the Swift Lovebird
What is Going on?
Today the event ‘Love is in the Air‘ started again. It’s a returning valentine’s event in World of Warcraft that is once a year, starting on February the 8th and ends on February the 22nd. People can do quests and get rewards and currency for it called the https://www.wowhead.com/item=49927/love-token. With this currency, players can buy items, pets, toys, transmog, heirlooms, and a mount called the https://www.wowhead.com/item=72146/swift-lovebird.
Buying the Swift Lovebird
While a majority is doing the hard farming of the currency to buy these rewards, you want to focus and check the auction house for cheap Swift Lovebird’s. This may take some time, depending on the sellers and the quantity that is posted on the auction house. In theory, the price should go down during the event because of the increase in competition and that is where you come in. If the mount gets to a point that its price is half the region’s value, then you may want to start buying them.
Don’t try to reset the market yet and wait after the event with that. Try and leave a cheap one on so that the price may stay low and you can keep buying for less.
Selling the Swift Lovebird
Thing is that in most cases you gonna have to wait with selling this mount. The price needs to go up again and that depends on the buyers, people with stock, and the current price. But if you wait long enough, it will pay of.
Every green circle you see here is the EU price getting to its max and drops during the event. The red line stands for the EU quantity that is posted on the auction house. The increase in price starts mostly after 3 months, but do check your realm for the prices.
How much it will go up next is the question.
What should also not forget is that multi-boxing has become very hard to do these days since Blizzard announced the rules on using 3rd party broadcasting software. There will be a lesser amount of farmers getting the https://www.wowhead.com/spell=69511/lucky-charm that is used to make the https://www.wowhead.com/item=49916/lovely-charm-bracelet to get more of the Love Token.
This could mean that the price will drop lesser and prices will bounce faster back up after the event.
Don’t think that this will be profitable in the short run, you will need to have some patience unless they sell out fast on your realm. What the best price will be to buy or sell the Swift Lovebird’s on your realm is something you will have to find out. Check The Undermine Journal website for that and see how the price and quantity are going.
There are also two pets that you can buy with the Love Token.
They are pretty easy to buy and there are already lots of them on the auction house. I don’t recommend investing in those.
