The Bits and Bobs
- If you aren’t sure which professions to pick, go with Skinning/Herbalism, Skinning/Mining. These professions are the gathering professions for all the other professions. If you take these, and sell the materials you get, you’ll always catch a nice penny. Edited by TrollvinkHere are some mining routes found in the starting places:
- If you are questing in The Barrens, spend some time killing things more than you need. The recipe for savory deviate delight, which can drop from anything there, is worth large amounts of gold.
- If you are 70 or higher, take a break from leveling to farm 55-60 and 65-70 instances, the greens and blues usually sell for a lot as they are perfect for gearing up for the next expansion. My personal favorite is Stratholme because of the mount.
- Quel’Danas dailies as a 70+: maybe not worth the gold, but if you need a little boost in xp, each of these dailies gives 8000-13000 xp in the mid 70s. It might not be much, but the scenery does help reinvigorate you.
- Always try to get big bags, like 14/16 slot-bags. With it, you can pick up every thing you come across, and sell for maximum money. It may not seem much in the beginning, but once you step into level 50+ areas, you’ll see how many grey items can sell for more then 1g. Easy money! By Trollvink
- Use AutoProfitX to make selling grey’s easier (So no searching in your bags).
- The somewhat heavier gold-making professions, are Jewelcrafting and Enchanting. These professions are somewhat expansive to level, unless you gather the materials yourself. If you have these, there are several gold-making ways, such buying raw gems from the auction house, and reselling the cutted gems. And selling the materials you get from disenchanting. This is somewhat a large tip, but as soon as I can find gold-making guides for these particular professions, I’ll put a link here. By Trollvink.
