So, you want to make Gold in World of Warcraft, do you?
Well, I don't blame you.
Making gold in World of Warcraft is easy if you have a strategy. The better the strategy, the more gold you will be making. In this article I have put together 7 quick tips that can form a simple but effective strategy for making gold in World of Warcraft
Gold is without question the most valuable resource in the game that literally can control how much fun you have while playing.
If you don't have gold, you cannot buy anything. That means you are not able to upgrade your spells, your armor or your weapons. Even worse, you are not able to buy a mount, or any of the simply outstandingly fun epic mounts!
Without gold, World of Warcraft is effectively turned into nothing but a virtual space where you pay to kill the same monsters over and over and over and over and over again, fighting for scraps so you can try in hopes to buy what you want eventually.
Fortunately, this is not always the case.
Getting gold can actually be very, very easy and very, very fun!
Contrary to popular believe, earning World of Warcraft Gold is not that challenging at all. For starters, you should be ashamed if you ever have purchased gold. Come on guys. Don't support Chinese farmers when you can do it yourself just as easily. Just follow some of the tips below and you'll be overflowing with gold before you know it! In fact, I have a level 22 right now that has over 300 gold and my characters under level 10 usually have over 8g!
How much gold are you looking for? 5000 gold for an epic flying mount? Maybe just a regular flying mount? Just some cash for late-game equipment? Decide how much gold you want to make and play accordingly. Tape it to your monitor if you have to. Starting out with an attainable goal is key to accomplishing anything in life, not just making gold in World of Warcraft.
Even though crafting professions (Leatherworking, jewelcrafting, tailoring and blacksmithing) are temping to pick up, avoid them like the plague! If you want to drown in your own gold, pick up two gathering professions! For example, get herbalism and skinning or skinning and mining or mining and herbalism. Then, SELL THE LOOT YOU GET! The Auction House is always alive with activity and buyers trying to get their hands on leather, ore and herbs. People are LAZY, or they simply don't have the profession required by their trade skill! So, you're the hero they needed to deliver the goods to them, and you pull a hefty profit at the same time!
*The above alone is one of the greatest techniques there is to massive gold earning! Seriously... try it.
For your third profession, fish once in a while. Some stacks of fish can net a lot of money on the Auction House. If you are waiting for a group to enter an instance, waiting to PvP, or just bored with questing, fish for a profitable way to kill time.
Even when you enter World of Warcraft as a level 1, get bags. All that you can carry. If you have a high level character already, buy the biggest bags you can and send them to your new character. This is a simple and easy to understand step that most people fail to use! If you have all 4 bag slots filled up right away, you can A) Continue questing without having to return to sell off items so you will level faster B) More importantly, be able to make much more gold as you will not have to delete items to make room for others. You can sell all your loot when you return for maximum profit even from the very beginning!
Always look to sell drops at the Auction House. Always sell your gathered leathers, herbs, or metals here as well. You will get more money than vendors almost every time. Check out the prices that other similar items are going for, so that you know how to price your item. You should also always use a buy-it-now price.
When you are choosing which professions you want, do not go with a crafting profession and a gathering profession (I.E. Leatherworking and Skinning.)
Instead, choose two gathering professions. You will use the Auction House to make all your hundreds and hundreds of gold with this effective technique.
Pick up two of any of the following: mining, skinning, herbalism or enchanting (to disenchant)
These simple tips will really get you making a lot of gold in World of Warcraft.
