Top World of Warcraft Gold Farming Techniques

Jul 31, 2008
Having played World of Warcraft for nearly 4 years, I have compiled a list of 10 best World of Warcraft gold farming strategies.

1. Each profession in World of Warcraft is unique and gold can be made through every one of them. However, if you want a CONSTANT flow of gold coming in, 'gathering' professions are always better 'crafting' professions.

2. Vendor all the 'grey' items (duh!) you find while leveling, send the rest to an alternative character, and post them onto the Auction House.

3. We all know how well Dusts and Essences sell in the Auction House, instead of vendoring or auctioning the greens that you find, tip an Enchanter to disenchant them and sale the dusts and Essences.

4. Using addons such as Gatherer and Auctioneer.

5. Supply your goods from your gathering professions to crafters in top guilds on your server. Doing this will guarantee sales and you eliminate the Auction House cut.

6. Here's a Mining tip, Silver and Tin nodes share a spawn point. Same thing goes with Gold and Iron; and Truesilver and Mithril. It's just that one is a rarer spawn than the other. For example, if you are only looking for Silver, you must mined the Tin nodes too, because if you don't, eventually there will be nothing but Tin nodes left.

7. If you are a more advanced player, jump on the new profession Inscription when Wrath of the Lich King comes out. I made the mistake of not choosing Jewelcrafting when Burning Crusade launched. It was too late when I realized how profitable a new profession is, especially in the beginning when there is very little competition.

8. Prior to a WoW Seasonal event, purchase or farm items that are needed during these events. During certain times of the years, prices of certain items skyrocket. This is an excellent time to reap in the profits.

9. Understanding supply and demand. There is a given supply for every item in World of Warcraft, and there are also a given number of people looking for that item (demand).

Let's look at this example, a server with 85% population being level 70s, the prices of some lower level items might be insanely high, this is because not only are these items in demand by lower level players, but also high level player's alts. Depending on the item, they could also be in demand as mats for leveling professions.

10. WoW is very fair, there is no single way to farm the most gold, there are many! Just find the way that suits your play style the most and enjoy your way of gold farming. It's a game after all!

These 10 World of Warcraft Gold Tips and Strategies have worked great for me, I hope you learned something from them.
