With every new release/expansion pack to World of Warcraft, gold become more devalued because the amount received from higher end items and creature drops increases significantly. While farming wow gold is not just killing monsters to collect the coin drops, these changes significantly affect the cost of things on the Auction House and overall “Cost of doing business” in WoW.Browse Vanilla WoW gold for USA servers.
There’s many things you can do to generate a ton of gold, and I’m listing what I consider to be the most important, the top 3 ways to farm wow Gold.
- Get The Auctioneer Addon.
The auctioneer addon will “scan” the Auction house for all items listed and make a record of the sale prices. This makes it easy to list items because you just drag and drop them into the “post auctions” screen and it will create a price based on the competition, you can then set it to undercut others by a percentage, or enter your own price (but you get to see all the other auctions for that item at the same time so it makes it easy to change your price accordingly if you want to do it manually).
- Get The Gatherer Addon.
Gatherer is an addon that remembers where you mined nodes and picked herbs. Most nodes spawn in relatively close manner to where they were spawned last. The spawn time depends on a lot of factors such as current number of people logged in playing on that realm.
Gatherer puts circles on the minimap and the worldmap where you mined or picked herbs making it much much easier and faster to gather resources, which of course sell for lots of gold and the faster you can gather, the faster you make gold.
There’s a few tricks when using gatherer. First, you can download the “Gatherer DB” which is a collection of nodes collected by users and will put them right into your map so you just follow the high density areas.
Secondly, when you come across a node, even if you can’t mine or gather it because your skill is too low, you can go up to it, right click it. This will save the location to your gatherer. A lot of times you may only be a few points below what is needed to gather that resource, this way you may get a skill up close by and quickly come back to the area and gather it.
- Selling Materials.
Referred to in game as “Selling Mats” knowing what “Mats” certain professions need to skill up can be a great way to make tons of gold fast. Most professions outside of gathering profession (Mining, Herbalism, Skinning) require these materials to level. Sometimes things like copper ore can sell more than higher level items because the skill increase with these in other professions is much steeper. For example, to get jewelcrafting from 1-100 you may need 150x Copper ore, were as you may only need 50 fel-iron to get from 275-300, this makes the need for copper more.
