    WoW Farming Cata Greens 9,000g per hour

    Hello guys , this is a guide on how to farm Cata greens in Blackrock Caverns which is still by far the best place for getting lvl 77-79 greens.

    Each run ( takes 6-7mins )
    4-10 greens depending on how lucky you are , Some runs i got 4 where others i got 11+ normally each of those green armor will go for 100-400g & weapons for 300-500g, you will get some grays that is worth 100-400g & 1-2stacks of embersilk cloth. this is a really good method to make gold as it will take u notime to farm them , they sell for crazy prices & there is very low competition on AH regarding those items. I would suggest you try 5-10runs & post your results just to know if it is worth it for you or not . In this video i will explain which bosses to kill & which to skip in order to maximize the trash u kill & the greens u get.Please note that it takes 1-2 days for those greens to sell but they do sell at crazy prices , if the competition is low you can sell each at 400-500g & many ppl will still buy them just because they are 10x better than wotlk gear making lvling & bgs fun.

    On my realm i dust them as the dust is worth about 350 a stack. Is there any reason to why these greens would sell ?

    Cata greens for sub 80s sell like crazy because they allow you to make broken twinks. The 75-79 bracket is a very popular twinking bracket.

    Depends entirely on the server. I used to try this (though I gained my greens from a more...shady source), posting only the ones with choice stats, and on my server I hardly made any sales. The choice twink bracket on my server is 80-84, about the only people who seemed to be buying my greens were people who wanted a leg up on leveling.

    Boosting ilvl to get into Cata dungeons? There might be a twink market too. I have some 78-80 greens from leveling an alt that I still havent tried to sell since I wasnt sure people still bought them for that much.

    Hypnotic dust is crazy expensive now. Its killing me that I have a guildbank tab full on a bankalt on an expired account. I waiting for a new SoR, then Ill unload it for a huge profit. The stuff was like dirt in Cata.

    do people actually buy cata greens? i was going to buy some on my alt while leveling in northrend, realised they were like 500g each on the ah and decided not to.
    Too cool for a signature

    Believe me they do sell. I've been selling greens ( at first cata ones then I included mop ones also) since mid cata. Altho I maybe overprice stuff seen as people in this thread post their greens for less but as long as it is selling I'm ok.
    On some days i dont sell a single green but when someone gets in range where they want/need those greens i sell about 10 of them with a price range of 400-600g.
    Edit: If someone doesnt like running dungeon or w/e. You could try good ol' Verlock Stand in Deepholm.With treasure finding potion and alt that has tailoring ( if you have one) you get nice chunk of greens + cloths which you can make into bags that usually sells good.

    just a tip to avoid wasting gold and time on relisting: 78-79 greenies with no heirloom counterpart (all of them can be upgraded to scale up to level 85 now) are going well, the rest is dust-worth

    so:
    - bracers
    - gloves
    - belts
    - boots

    neck and rings can be crafted with JC so they will be less valuable, but still worth something


    this obviously won't work on most of servers as there are only a few people willing to spend a ton of money for 2 levels of gear advantage (you can craft all the gear with level requirement 80 by professions)
    CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K @ 4.8GHz
    Motherboard: Asus P8Z68 Deluxe
    Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws-X 2x4GB 1600Mhz

    Drive: 1 x OCZ Vertex 3 240Gb + 1 x WD Caviar Black 1TB

    guess i should stop vendoring all my greens >.<

    Well, I know Cata greens used to sell in the past, but on my server at least, they never seem to sell now. Probably because people still have them at such ridiculous prices. haha. It depends entirely on your server. I imagine they sell like crazy on really busy servers.

    Not everyone upgrades them to 85. Aside it is extra fun to play bgs with twink items :P nets you some extra kills and such, and it is fine with blizzard. Also AFAIK the heirloom at lvl 80 scales to about ilvl 200.

    people putting quotes in signatures are often retarded according to science.

    and you lose the exp bonus, therefore only 78/79 twinks might buy them, or 78 weapons for leveling

    conclusion, only 5-10% of servers will have a respectable market for those items (high pop PvP servers mostly)

    This method is 100% based on your realms population. You might farm items worth even 10kG per hour , but it will take you way too long to sell them.

    If you want some pocket gold you can farm there a bit and then keep your items posted all the time.

    Also , another great gold making method is to use auction house scanning addons and buy the underpriced gear for the popular pvp brackets . For example buying underpriced cata items and reselling them instead of farming them.
