Min/max at the vendor

While leveling up bagspace is usually at a premium.  It may have been my imagination but it seemed like a lot more quests were giving rewards than they did when going from 60-70.  Most of it isn’t worth hanging on and unless you can disenchant it, your only options are to vendor it or let it take up bag space.

But not all vendor trash is created equal.  I put together a list based on level 79 greens of which items fetch the most at the vendor.  The general rule is that weapons vendor for the most, then plate, then mail, then leather, then cloth.  Within an armor class, legs are most, then chest, shoulders, helm, boots, bracers, hands and finally waist.  Instead of clogging up the front page with a detailed list, I made a post on the forum with a more detailed list: http://www.tankhard.com/smf/index.php/topic,206.0.html

I also highly recommend the addon AutoProfitX (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/auto-profit-x.aspx) which puts a button at the top of any vendor window that lets you automatically vendor all of the grey items in you bags.  You can also set it up to vendor selected white items as well (I am looking at you fish scales and fish oil).


  1. I prefer GarbageFu and GarbageFu_Prices. Easy selling to vendors AND it allows you to throw out the cheapest items when your bags fill up. But FuBar isn’t for everyone…

  2. I simply use auctioneer suite. One of the features includes vendor prices when you hover over any item icon. When I am choosing my quest reward (and I’ve determined it’s going to the vendor anyway) I just hover over each item and pick the one auctioneer says will vendor for the most. Since patch 3.0 it’s become a little trickier to install auctioneer but it’s worth the effort.

  3. GarbageFu is usable with LDB displays as well. I’m using it now with Fortress.

    Also, Tekkub has written an addon called VendorBait that will highlight the most expensive quest reward for you.
