So i got interested in provisioning and using it to sell food/drinks in the guild trader. Any experienced players can share if it is profitable or is it it situation where everyone has it , so there is no point in focusing in that direction?
The most profit I have found is to get your provisioning skill (not level) somewhere mid range where the recipes get expensive and then do the southern elsweyr dragonguard quests enough to unlock the blind argonian in the sanctum. He will sell you all the green recipes at your skill level for under half what they go for at traders and you can just keep selling them on. I was happily buying ethereal hooch etc recipes for 800 or so and selling for 5000 until I got so much in game gold from this and other things I got bored of it and levelled my provisioning skill up to 6.
Regardless of the above mentioned: Provsioing reward at cp160 is 601 gold per daily and you need only six different items.
So the monthly gain is 18K gold per char and you need 5 items of each kind on average.
