The Consortium and Wind Traders
Have you been to consortium.stormspire.net yet?  This is a bustling forum with the majority of gold bloggers freely discussing ideas, strategies, speculations, and much more.  There is even a section for private "Wind Traders" discussion.  Only 2 Wind traders are allowed per server (1 Horde & 1 Alliance).  There are RSS Feeds from the major gold blogs so it's also a good place to find new authors to read.  If you go and sign up to join our community, please mention Cold as your referrer.  (No benefit to me - just tracking.)  The admin, Sterling, runs an un-named featured gold blog on the sites main page as well.  Sterling has been banging out some great topics, so don't miss out.

  1. Amazing post.

    (I may or may not be biased)

  2. The Consortium idea for wind trader.....I just really dont see the need to be exclusive. If you already have more gold than you can spend.....what secrets do you really need to know? Your obviously then smart enough to keep making gold.

  3. It has been one of my new favorite sites that I read on a regular basis, as well as yours, Marcko's, Breev's and Anaalius'.

    It's not about sharing secrets that we keep from everyone else. It's about being able to talk in an exclusive environment with other wind traders that have an expansive grasp of every aspect of playing the auction house. So its more of an advanced discussion forum than it is a secret keeping society.
