In pure terms of just farming, for me and my server this STILL seems to be the best way to spend 1.5 hrs. Minimum 5k profit and ive made as much as 8k profit. Just seems kinda crazy to me after two expansions its still the quickest gold maker. It makes farming any current mats irrelevant. I know there are better ways to make money but once in a rare while i actually enjoy doing a bit of mining (mind you, i havent done this since last xpac lol) it can be fairly relaxing.
