The Basic Ways to Earn Gold on World of Warcraft
The Basic Ways to Earn Gold on World of Warcraft
People from around the world enjoy creating characters and immersing themselves in World of Warcraft for hours on end. However, almost everyone will soon realize that even in this fictional world nothing is for free and money is a necessity. Without gold, life in Azeroth can be quite difficult since it is needed to buy better equipment, skills, weapons and armor.
Fortunately, there are many ways to earn gold on World of Warcraft. Some are more profitable than others, whereas others are basic and don’t require any special skills. The following guide provides a general overview that any player, regardless of level, can use to get ahead.
Quests and Daily Quests
There are literally thousands of quests for players on World of Warcraft. Some are good for solo players, and others are nothing more than grinding mobs. However, the potential to earn great rewards is there. Questing is a good option for players who need gold immediately, because the payout is made upon completion and there is no waiting at the auction house or searching for vendors.
The daily quest is one type of quest open to all players and although the earnings are not the greatest, they are simple. Especially beginners with low level characters will appreciate the daily quests, because they can be completed without much trouble. On the negative side, these quests can be rather lengthy and in the same amount of time it takes to complete just one more gold can be made doing other tasks or gathering materials to sell.
Players can loot items from several places in World of Warcraft. In the game, objects can be looted from all kinds of containers, corpses or mobs. Players who are on their own can take whatever they want to, whereas players that are participating in a party will have to comply with all so-called looting parameters that are determined by the leader of the group.
Gathering and Selling Materials
Millions of people play World of Warcraft and each of them needs to buy materials at some point or another. Collecting items and then selling them is a great way to earn money. The amount that can be made changes, though, because the selling price depends on not only the material being sold, but also the current supply vs. demand.
There are countless items that can be harvested, including herbs, ores, cloth, meat and fish. Unlike some games where players can just find and collect any material, in World of Warcraft there are professions and skills that are needed to do so. For example, players interested in finding herbs to harvest will need to have the herbalism profession.
One often overlooked item to gather and sell is meat. A lot of players don’t collect meat, because only hunters actually have a need for it. However, a hunter that needs meat quickly to feed their pet in order to keep it happy will pay a good price at the auction house. There are different pets and each has its own unique diet, so it is worth stocking up on a variety of meat.
It is also worth mentioning items that can be gathered only during special seasonal or world events. These events are generally short-lived, so the goal is to gather as much of any special material as possible and then sell them for a decent profit. A snowball is a good example of such a special event material. Snowballs are needed during the Feast of Winter Veil and can be purchased from vendors, looted in the Alterac Mountains or snow mounds, made by engineers with a SnowMaster 9000 and earned by completing related quests.
Earning by Learning a Crafting Profession
Although there are several crafting professions for players to choose from, the most profitable are the ones that involve gathering materials like herbalism, skinning, mining and enchanting. The other professions available to the player are leatherworking, alchemy, tailoring, engineering, jewelcrafting and blacksmithing. These make it possible to craft gear and other items, which can be used by the player or sold.
Professions have to be chosen wisely, though. This is because WoW limits a character to only two professions at any given time. It is possible to drop a profession and learn a new one, but then all skills are lost and the player has to start from the beginning in the new profession. Two skills that every player should pick up early in the game are fishing and cooking, because these do not count as primary crafting professions and thus, do not count towards the two profession limit.
Before choosing a profession, there are some things to keep in mind. One consideration to make when choosing is that the customer base for some of these professions, such as engineering, is relatively small and that the majority of the crafted items do not make a lot of money since the materials needed are also costly. Also, research what materials can be harvested and what craftables are available for each profession. Some item categories are much more in demand than others and selling these items is a sure-fire way to earn money for as long as the game is around. The three most important categories are herbs, cloth and ore.
All skills can also be offered on the trade channel to other players and in order to use the skills a fee is paid. This can be very lucrative, and especially for players who take the risk to become masters of a specialization within their profession. Players who want to make a lot using this method should level-up their profession until they are masters of a specialization, such as elixir making, transmutation, disenchanting or inscription.
The Auction House
On WoW there is an auction house where players can buy or sell all kinds of goods, and this is one of the most important features of the game when it comes to making gold.
Players with a lot of patience and some money to spare can also wait at the auction house for a good deal to come along that they can afford. Buying goods at a low price and then selling it for more is a simple, yet effective, method for earning gold quickly.
In order to get the most out of the auction house, it is worth installing an add-on called the Auctioneer which keeps track of market trends and lets the player know when the time is good to sell a particular item. This program makes buying and selling extremely easy and it should be used from the start, which it often isn’t out of fear. Many players don’t take advantage of the Auctioneer, because it has many features and configurations that make it appear complicated
