    I boost people in pvp.. Double effective when you cap your CP's at the same time. You can buy items and disenchant them when you don't need the points anymore. I make anything between 1-3k gold a hour.

    Doing 3-5k gold per week without even nowing how... (Still having a gold managment addon from when I was actively playing ah in wolk/cata )

    I buy nearly nothing. Having an enchanter friends who give me what I need (outside wep enchant for alts). In return I send her every green and comps I loot (also giving her every cloth). I sell nothing in th ah outside blood spirit I may have in LFR lootbags.

    Only doing a few 5man with tank/heal bag. HC scenario (group of 3 guildies, making guild bank gold for repair), and ToT LFR (at least 6-8 wings on multiple alts).

    Play wow, don't buy silly things and watch your gold rising.

    I do my c.d on my alchemist for my Living Steele, (a transmute master and another Alchemist)
    I make my Trillium bar with my Alchemist transmute master
    Then I make belt buckle with the living steele (Blacksmith) ( around 475g per belt buckle) each days (minimum 14 belt buckle per weeks = 6550gold)


    I have a tailor, I sell the 28 slots bag once in a while ( around 4k)
    I sell a 26 slots bag once in a while (3,5kg)

    I plant mote of harmony seed on my black smith then with this I can make some Masterwork weapons around 2500 to 3000 ( x2 per week)
    Or If I have patience, I can make a 502 weapon and sells it around 20k

    One daily JC cool down per days, sometime I pop a Primal diamond or just other bleue gems wich a cut around 100g a day
    1 daily Cooking, another 100g

    I don't do 5 hours of Auction House per day
    I can make a living with what I do , around 30 min per day, the most annoying is the Tiller Farm garden

    I have 4 levels 90's and 1 level 85 toons


    I spend my cash on things that are not usefull
    Like changing my profession ( making an engeneer with the mats from the AH cost me around 15k,)
    Buying little pet wich, I never do pet battle
    Making some mounts ( JC mounts)
    Buyings BoA for toons that I will never play
    I never sells the Tailor bags, I use them on my toons

    Hi Cle

    Do you have any alts that can help you out? BS-Mining-Alchemy-Inscription-Tailoring is making me gold each day/week.

    You have JC/Enchanting on your main and you can make Money, but it takes time and Money to be good. So I would farm pets from older raids, there is alot atm and some sell fairly well. Try to buy mats in the weekend where everyone have the time to farm and off load them buring the week. On my server Ghost iron ore is 32-34g in the weekend and 36-44 during the week. That might only be 2-4-6-8g pr stack, but 1-2-300 stacks it Begins to add up.

    Important: Your realm might be different, so any advice given here is not a "sure thing" you need to figure out what can make Money on your server.

    Edit: On my server I DE greens with vendor value under 10g and vender any over 10g.

    Only maxed professions are jc and enchanting. I could level other professions, but no money to even level them.

    Enchanting does not seem to make any money, and jc when i tried to make money with ghost iron ore shuffle it didnt work.

    As people mentioned above mostly depends on your server but on every server Flasks (int flask sells the most)/pots/Int gems sells the most, agy gems are not so bad.
    To get free mats get tillers ofc and plant. Once you have one alt at exalted with 100% rep bonus for alts it takes about 5 days to reach exalted on alts (planting and doing dailys).

    quick gold can be made from treasure scenario on Isle of thunder if you clear 1st room chests it should net you about 300-500g per char per week. You only need to kill rare or find chest every week to get the key.

    Also at Halfhill aka Tillers place make sure you do daily cooking quest for tokens change 1 token for 100 year old sauce and you can sell it for 200g more or less depend on your server.

    If you'r a tank farm warbringers by soloing them, if you aren't a tank find a group and say you'll help on killing them but you'll pass everything except blue/green bags ( reserve them) you can also pull easy gold from those bags. Warscouts you can solo them and they also have chance to drop blue/green bags.

    Isle of giants you could farm for Direhorn ( even tho it's getting nerfed next patch) or other zandalari pets and sell them on AH. 1 on 1 you can solo almsot every dino as any dps class. As you farm for pets you'll get Bones which you can turn for Spirit or Mote of Harmony ( 9 bones = 1 Mote 99bones = 1 SPirit of Harmony)

    As mentioned before if 100 year old sauce sells for decent amount of gold and you'r dps or have dps alt buy empty grocery baskets at Halhill market go to either Windwar Isle in Jade east side of the Isle you shoudl find many turtles which drop alot of turtle meat ( 20 Turtle meat + Grocery Basket = 1 Cooking Token = 1 100 year old sauce) or you could farm birds in swamp area east of Paoquan Hollow in Valley of four Winds. (I found lock alt with 500% AoE talent to be epic for that). As you farm turtles if you have couple gold to spare buy Potion of Luck to increase max. profit from farming.

    If it's not to expensive you should try to buy or farm mats for Potion of Treasure Finding and farm for Embersilk Cloth/ Cata greens in Deepholme this should net you couple thousand gold.

    As you done Isle of Thunder Treasure scenario you should have between 10-20 coins which you can blow up in LFR to get some free gold/loot to sell ( per coin you can get between 20-150g).

    Atm I can't think of anything else but these couple advices above are quickest way to get some easy gold ofc some req bit of farming. If I think of anything else I'll try to update or create a new post. Good luck.

    But what I have heard is that dailies atleast, are not the way rich people made their fortune.
    You see where is reading the forums too generalised? there are loads of threads on this exact subject and if you put the effort into reading then you might learn soemthing and make the gold you are seeking. The answers to multiple threads are going to be far more ccomprehensive than the answers to a single one. You arent off to a good start m8 because if you wont learn the basics that are repeated time and again on these forums and are unwilling to put the effort in then you make nothing. Your own worst enemy.

    A good way to make gold is to make sure you have at least one gathering profession while doing dailies, while you're out doing your dailies you can get a few stacks to sell on the AH in addition the gold you make from doing said dailies.

    If you are generally stocked up on food stuffs/buff food from your tillers farm, you can farm up Cabbages, etc. Along with that, you can also farm for Spirits of Harmony, and turn them in at your factions SoH vendor for Ironpaw Tokens (for 100 Year Soy Sauce/Black Pepper, etc, which you can put up on the auction housel) and other various key crafting materals (Golden Lotus/White & Black Trillium, Leathers, etc), and you can also put these up for auction as well.
    This is just something I do.

    Another way that I make gold, while its more gimmicky and can be considered more monotonous, is to go into Molten Core, and farm the Molten Destroyers (and Dark Iron Ore veins) for Blood of the Mountain, while it may take some farming to be able to procure these materials, they are worth a substantial amount of gold on the AH, obviously, server to server prices vary, but they do give you a pretty hefty amount of change (I've heard anywhere from 300-10k gold per, depending on your server)

    The above ways are just to name a few

    It all depennds on your server. If shuffling works for you, then its great. I find my server largely ruined (Auchendioun EU high pop) - Just can't make money on shuffel...I blame that fucking Davshan paladin..../die you pest....

    Anywho its simple to check if shuffling works: Buy ore for 30-40g or something low>prospect>check gem prices>see if its worth making DE food>make enchant scrolls. Thats really it. Inn the glory days back on my old server I was something able to say buy ores worth 2-5k, prospect it all, and earn all the gold back I spended within days, and rest was profit, that useally was useally close to tripple. But this method is over-used on most servers, so it can be hard.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    Hey there,
    I'm closing in on my first gold cap so hopefully I'll be able to help you out.

    1. Level your professions. They're the basics and the end game craftable stuff sells for a pretty decent profit of about 5,000 a day/profession if you craft everything profitable and post it once. If you don't have the gold to level a crafting profession, level a gathering profession like mining, herbalism, or fishing in the meantime and sell those wares on the AH to pay for the crafting leveling process.
    2. Flipping on the AH is a fantastic source of income once you have a bankroll and a little more motivation from step 1. Check out WoWUction and TheUndermineJournal. They have bargain finders and great deals, respectively, where you can search every hour and see if you can find items that you can flip for a profit.
    3. Farming your own gear and materials is the only other real route left. Generally, you do this through running old or new dungeons, or killing mobs out in the open, although there are some creative means. For instance, I recently just did a youtube guide on how to make money in Zul'Farrak. You don't have to pull bosses to round up all the trash, so you can run through the dungeon in 5 minutes, get 1500g worth of goods, go out and reset the instance. Five runs later you're a much wealthier person and the episode of Breaking Bad you were watching isn't even halfway over.
    4. Dailies add up, but are not something I'd recommend for a system of goldmaking. They are instant cash though if you're dead broke. Still, mining and herbalism are significantly more gold/hour.

    Most importantly, figure out a goal, man. Work towards something fun, exciting, or silly in game (this parts really kinda like IRL budgeting) and just focus on it. It makes the journey mean something. I promise you that the reason you've been broke in game up to this point is that you haven't had a reason not to be broke. Find a reason to have gold, and you'll get it and keep it. If you need any more help, I run a gold blog you can check out in the signature, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or facebook me. Info's on the site.

    Dont buy the ore just go farm it and make gems yourself, if you do plan on selling gems sell them on prime raid days (Tuesday - Thursday 8pm-11pm server time)So put the gems up early around 6pm server and you'll get people buying them be for raid and through out the raid night.

    People say that its easy to get money in wow, but yet I cant find out how exactly it happens. I know about auction house flipping, but I have no clue about it. Last time I read about tips about what should be bought and sold, I tried to buy lots of ghost iron ore and broke them with jc into various gems. There were no profit, only lost gold.

    I have no idea about where to start studying, what I need to buy or farm?
    Lately I asked a friend to buy me some pets on a busy server I dont have a character on (pets weren't on my own realm). The idea was to create a level 1 and pay him back within 2 months. First I tried selling other pets, didnt went fast enough to my taste. I flipped way to cheap stuff, but thats harder on a busy realm as Silvermoon EU. Then I went for buying out all the uncommon uncut gems, sending them to my friend to cut all of them to well selling perfects. The perfect ratio is 10%, and a uncommon cut gem is worth 85s. So even at 3g a piece (uncut) you will still make a profit on green/yellow/purple/orange. Gems go from 20-100g.

    The idea is to buy out the big stacks of uncut ones, and leave always a few gems in the auction house, so people will keep undercutting. If you buy out everything, the price will reset, and it will take very long to drop again.

    Also, if you see a few cheap cut gems in the AH, you know, the occasional 50% undercutter, dont buy him out or undercut. Simply price higher, those few gems will sell very fast on a busy server.

    I bought out at least 200 stacks of each color except orange. Yellow often for less then 1g a piece, 20g a stack, cut uncommons worth 15g30s, the 2 perfects I sold for 40-100g, 70g average would be around right, so basicly I made 135g profit from 20g times alot.

    Best time to post = first and second day after reset at 21:00 (around before break time) and 22:30 (right before end of raids)

    I made over 60k in 2 weeks only sending gems to my friend which he happily cutted while afking watching a TV serie . I could have bought and make way more, but I didnt want to burden my friend. Having a JC would have made me rich there.

    Making gold boils down to playing the game and not spending it. That's really it. There are some faster and slower ways but that's what it always boils down to. You can play auction house 24/7, but I don't understand why people put themselves through that.

    I miss WoTLK for making gold. I was in Japan playing on a US server so the time difference was pretty bad. I always ended up on super early or late, and would find hacked accounts liquidating toons for a fraction of the real cost. I made around 200k just off this alone, which was nice income to the ore shuffle. Shuffling has always been easy, and some things about it vary depending on server. Like the blue rings/necks you can proc. I know people who just DE these, but on my server they sell quickly and in high quantities. It helps that the rings aren't unique, so they always sell in pairs.

    It's nice having an Enchanter, Xmute alchemist and JC to do the work. Once you start getting rolling and buying 500-1k stacks of ore a day (stacks, yes) you might want to consider 'paying' a friend to prospect for you just to save some time. Gave a buddy 10% of everything I made just so I didn't spend hours prospecting, was totally worth it.
    And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

    Ah, so you don't just want a bit of cash you want to be rich?

    Making enough cash to pay for raiding, enchants, reforging, gems is easy as everyone has said. Dailies, ore, herbs, make a few choice gems. Easily done. Becoming rich is hard work. You either have to spend a lot of time playing wow doing dull things, or play the AH. Look into Tradeskill Master or Auctioneer, have a look at sites that talk about auction markets and be prepared to list 300 items, then cancel them all and relist them 10 minutes later.

    I made 400k in Wrath and I'm not interested in mounts, fancy weapons or pets and that, along with money from dailies and levelling is more than enough.

    Hi Cle,

    Even though I haven't played in awhile one of the first things I did when I started raiding was make sure I was self-sufficent. Meaning anything I needed for my main I could get from one of my alts and a bit of farming. That cut my costs down a lot. I usually did every quest in every zone and the money I got from that usually lasted me awhile. If I did start running low I would start doing dailies to bring it back up. I never actually did play the AH. If something dropped for me sure I would sell it on there but I never played it on a regular basis.

    Just to give you some money figures at the end of WOTLK I have about 8k in total at my disposal. Once I went through all the Cata zones I think I was over 12k. I'm not saying those numbers are anything fancy but they were more than enough for my needs. As an aside at the end of Cata I blew it all getting my main all geared up to do DS. Although after running my characters through the Jade Forest I think I'm back up to 2-3k.

    A good option for raiders (good is subjective of course) is to get a second account. I would do a boss fight on my main, and when we were clearing trash or recovering from a wipe run TSM scanner and relist everything. I would relist maybe 5-6 times, then scan for undercuts and cancel accordingly. Thanks to postal, I could just go to the mail box and take everything out in 1 go. Worked pretty well actually, as long as you list things in groups of 2-3 on medium length to reduce listing price.
    And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

    I used to farm dailys lot, when for some reason I don't find the excitement for lvlling professions.
