How To Make Gold In WoW

Jul 21, 2008
If you are an online gamer and have played Blizzard's World of Warcraft for more than a couple of hours, you will know just how frustrating it can be to be short of gold, the in-game currency. You need a ton of gold for any decent item or weapon in the Auction House (AH). It even costs to travel any distance if you don't want to walk.

As you play the game, you will learn that you will need more and more gold the higher up in levels you go.

There are several things you can do to increase your gold bank account. One of the best things you can do early in the game is start a profession such as mining or skinning.

Early on in the game you are going to be running around many caves and plenty of open areas with lots of monsters that you can skin. Both mineral ore and skins can be sold to other players for a serious profit or placed at auction for profit. If you pick up either one of these professions or both, be sure to also obtain plenty of bags for carrying and storing the ores and skins you gather. The more slots in the bag the better you will be.

You can make 30 gold an hour with little effort on most servers. The fish in most demand are Deviate Fish, Stonescale Eel, Oily Blackmouth and Firefin. Check the prices for these in the AH on your server and start fishing.

A side effect to questing is the drops. You can find some great drops when questing. Most of these you can sell at auction and make even more money for your character.

Keep an eye out for mobs when you are questing because they tend to drop the best items (the only exception being the high level bosses).

Humanoids tend to drop items such as cloth and wool. You generally won't find those items on say a bear or spider. So depending on what you are collecting will dictate what you kill. Also, a great character class for creating a gold gatherer is the Hunter class. They have some great abilities including owning a pet which will help to solo. Being able to solo and not share your loot also helps you to gain gold quickly.
