There are many WoW gold making guides that have been outdated since the release of The Burning Crusade. There are so many alternate ways to make gold but there I have found the most profitable ways to making gold. Every gold farming method seems to result under these categories:
- Auction House
It was impossible to quest for gold back before TBC. Questing is actually a huge part of any time gold income at level 70. Questing can bring you in mountains of gold because most quests include the rewards of both grinding for gold, and then the questing rewards that you get when you turn in the quest. The best thing about questing is that it does not end! TBC made questing a viable option for Gold farming because there is an endless list of quests.
Many people on every server are still trying to complete all their quests. At the time of writing this we are still 5 months into the release of TBC. You can see how many quests there really are and how long it will actually take you to clear your quest log. When you reach level 70, all the quests stop giving you experience (simply because there’s no experience needed to be gained) but instead of experience rewards you are given more gold! This gives every player a huge incentive to continue questing beyond level 70.
Professions have been a descent part of gold collecting since the game begin. However TBC has made a professions explode. Jewelcrafting, Mining, Herbalism, Skinning, are just 4 professions that made it huge. These are the 4 professions that you can make the most money from however every profession is profitable once it reaches a certain level.
Playing the auction house is still a great way to make money! Less people are making mistakes because they use Auctioneer. However there are still things you can do inside of the auction house that auctioneer will never be able to automate. Things like buying out all the low level gear and re-listing it for higher prices!
Also manually searching he auction house to find items that are in very low stock, but in high demand. This includes things like Copper, Tin, Bronze, Linen, Low level Gems, and twink Items. That’s just the beginning of the list because it goes on. You just need to find what your server is in need of and go farm it!
Grinding is still one of the greatest ways to make gold. Grinding for reputation items to sell is a great way right now while guilds are still trying to conquer new content. Everybody will want the hottest new reputation rewards but most players will be to lazy to actually farm them. Just like players farmed for Argent Dawn reputation items you can do the same at our level 70. Finding Aldor or Scryer items will give you a great gold income while people are continuing to get their reputation up.
Mote’s and Primals play a huge role in the grinding game. Primals are used in every good crafting recipe at level 70, even some below! It takes ten motes to create one primal. This means you will have to farm a huge amount of Motes just to create enough primals for a few recipes. If you understand farming that is GREAT. This means grinding for motes will never end because players will always want more.
Motes can also be found from gathering professions so it makes them just one more step ahead of other professions. They are random drops inside of herb’s and ore. You will still get your herbs and ore when you loot them but you will get a special present with it!
