Revision of How to get the most out of Quest Rewards from Thu, 2008-12-18 05:20

About the Guide : A short but, hopefully helpful, guide that will help you save gold. Whether it be at level 80, finishing up Northrend quests, or at level 10, deciding on a quest reward when you can't use any of them. This will make saving easier, as long as you do it properly!

1.The Purpose; Why You Should Read This
Simple List :

  • You don't waste quest rewards.
  • You easily get 5~g per quest reward in early Northrend, ramping up as you go.
In-depth:
Using this guide, you will not choose unnecessary quest rewards only to find that they are not upgrades, and ending up losing money. For example, if Reward A sells for 2g at a vendor, but Reward B sells for 4, and neither are upgrades, you gain 2g by knowing that beforehand. Without knowing it beforehand, you may lose 2g because Reward A was for your spec but Reward B wasn't.

2. Add-ons; Helpers of the Questers
Helping you save money; one add-on at a time.

  • Rating Buster - An add-on of great significance when deciding on a quest reward. Simpler stats? Yes please! Simpler item comparison and deciding if an item is an upgrade is the biggest purpose. In the end, it alone can save you much money, since you will not waste quest rewards only to see your DPS, TPS, or HPS go down after you equip it. Much less disappointment, and much more gold; I'll let you decide if it's a fair trade!

  • Sellfish - Another key add-on in the art of making money from vendor trash, also, not just quest rewards! At low levels, this can save you by helping you decide which piece of gray loot you throw out to get that quest item, thus losing the least money possible. This and Rating Buster go hand in hand because when none of the quest rewards are an upgrade, you get a larger amount of gold than just clicking on one and turning the quest in. It when combined with Rating Buster is an add-on of great worth in the process of making money from quest rewards.


3. How To Succeed; From Rags to Riches.

Now, on to the main purpose of this guide, which is fairly simple. The key things to do to make additional gold from your quests are to..

  1. Make sure you're getting upgrades. Using Rating Buster, you should compare the stats on the gear usable to you, to check for upgrades. If none are found, you continue onto step two..

  2. When using gear better than a quest reward, mouse over each of them, and select the one that has the greatest number after the gold symbol. If they give the same amount, look at the number after the silver symbol, and so on. This may be after "Sells For:" instead, depending on your version of Sellfish.

4. Conclusion; Why I'm glad I wasted time on this guide.

I'm glad I spent time on this guide because, if all goes well, this may help many people gain a lot of money. This way, they'll be able to get things such as their epic fliers, Grand Mammoth Caravans, and everything else without as much wasted time Smiling. I'm hoping for criticism, and for this guide to be actually accepted, and used, by the public. Ha!

Though, this guide is in no way or form complete. If it was that easy to complete a half-decent guide, the internet would be overflowed, no?

I don't remember what the previous one was, but it was probably just changed for clarification. Jame is doing a mass cleaning of the site to try and make everything more organized and easy to find. He edited a few of my guide's titles as well.

Yeah, I made that post

Yeah, I made that post before I read the blog post and such. I usually disregard the front page. By the way, your Table of Contents guide is great! It's very useful, and am implementing some of the ideas into the guide and others I am working on.

Really nice guide, i mean

Really nice guide, i mean the tips in it . The sellfish addon is great, i estimated that i can make up to 3-5g for just chosing a different quest reward. I dont think there is anything to add to the guide because pictures arent needed, and all that stuff.
Thanks for writing it!

Thank you for the kind

Thank you for the kind comment! It's my first guide, so I do plan on putting more detail and such in. Sadly, I've been side-tracked by leveling a Warlock, ever since re-reading an epic fanfic about one Sticking out tongue
