With the recent release of World of Warcraft: Legion, there's no denying that the economy has changed drastically. Not only is the change driven by the massive influx of players returning to the game (or just new players in general), but many of the expansion’s new mechanics have changed the WoW gold-making landscape.
Many quite useful for gold making addons rely upon the game API, and knowing what sort of API functionality we will get from Classic is a quite important question. On the retail version of the game, players are long used to addons such as TradeSkillMaster, Auctionator, Auctioneer. Back in the days of Vanilla WoW, Auctioneer was actually the only auction house addon, and this raises questions in the community – should other add-ons even be present on Classic WoW, or would that work against the purpose of recreating the original game experience. There is no official position on this matter yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see how this plays out.
GATHERING AND FARMING
There are so many things to be gathered in the game – ore, leather, herbs, fish, linen, mageweave, gems, stones, etc. There is much gold to be made from all these reagents.
Gathering is a good way to begin money making. Just find resources to gather or to mine while leveling your character, especially if you are trained in skinning. Note to yourself – you cannot pass 225 skill mark in your professions until you are at least level 35.
A major tip here – you should always sell gathered items at the auction house and use your bank alts to make this process optimized. You should also try to find constant buyers for the mats, they are out there – just ask in the chat and keep your eyes open on the trade chat. That will keep your sales consistent and will save you some time needed to put mats on the AH.
Farming is more suitable for higher level characters (level 40-50+). Farming works around instance runs, killing named bosses multiple times, running dungeons again and again for the chance of getting a desired drop and farming mobs in different areas and spots.
That approach to making gold takes more time than a road of gathering, and the payoff might be higher, depending on the cost of different items at the auction. That means you can make a 20 gold in a day, or 100g, depending on what drops you get (which is random).
If you got something nice but you don’t know what it is worth, try to compare it with similar items and price accordingly. If you’re still not sure about it, we suggest putting the price you want as the base one and a much higher amount for the buyout 24-hour bid window. You should do this on the weekend, because during this time there are more people online and you will have a better chance to sell your items, otherwise you may just lose your money if your auction does not sell. Putting items for a bid costs quite a bit, so you should always keep your items in the bank until Friday/Saturday/Sunday. It is best to put them on the auction at the primetime, around 7 p.m. on a Friday evening with a 24-hour bid and repeat that on the next day. Advertising item in the trade chat might work as well. Good luck with your trades!
To start your gold making way in crafting you better have at least 10-20 gold ready to spend as start-up capital. For a while, around 150 skill points into crafting professions, you will lose money – items are not worth much or demand is not enough to make good cash. Higher level crafts, on the other hand, are the main source of income. There is money to be made – craft armor, potions, bags, shirts.
Tip for crafting professions – in need of supplies try to establish contacts with a constant supplier, just as we suggested for gatherers to find constant buyers. It is a very important part of a reliable income. It is also very attractive to the crafters as they can normally negotiate for materials to be cheaper than AH and so they have a constant supply to make their items.
The auction house is the main way to make gold. No it does not provide gold quickly but it does provides a steady stream of gold every day. The auction house is very helpful if you want to save up for something, want to hit the gold cap, or simply have something incredibly valuable in your bags and want to sell it for as much as possible. The original Auction House system was very annoying without addons to use at least in my opinion. With addons however, the AH interface becomes extremely simple making it easy to post, cancel and view your auctions. This section will be explaining the basics of how to use the AH and which addons I think are useful with the AH. Also it will cover some tips for getting started. Note that AH goes great parred with Farming and it's allot simpler getting started, so I will also be covering the subject of the AH in the Farming section.
Buy low, sell high. Flipping.
Flipping is the art of buying an item, and reselling it for more gold. To do this, you need to know what an item is really worth, so you need to know your buyers. Once you know that, you can work backwards and find items that are posted for less than that price.
This gives you two opportunities to make gold. Make gold by buying an item cheaper than its value. And make gold by selling an item at a higher price.
