So we left off yesterday I had spent the whole weekend trying to get my Druid caught up to be a functioning member of Warcraft society. Well Monday had some extra time on my hands (one of my profs was sick) so I decided after I did my Golden Lotus dailies I’d tackle the Klaxxi. …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 7–If You Were Starting Over Again…

If you were starting over again (maybe on a new server perhaps), how would you start building some capital & what goal would you set yourself? Just a quick disclaimer here, I would never opt to start fresh on a server. If for some reason I ever decided to leave my current server (and it …

Playing Catch Up

So I have a bit of a dirty secret, I haven’t really been playing World of Warcraft since before Mists of Pandaria hit. I mean, it took me forever to get a level 90 (not a lot of game time, just a lot of calendar time) and when I did hit 90 I just kind …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 6–Which Market Has Made You the Most Gold Over the Years?

This is a bit tricky as I treat most of my professions as set it and forget it, I usually don’t pay much attention once I have it figured out and TradeSkillMaster is running the show. There’s basically only four markets I’m in right now, and have been in fairly consistently over my gold making …

Arranging Professions: A Case Study (Part 2)

So it’s been a while since I wrote part one of this arranging professions case study, nearly 6 months in fact. I never ended up acting on any of my plans I had for entering Mists of Pandaria, I went into Mists of Pandaria with no major changes. Recently I mentioned that I had finally …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 5 – Do you keep the same banker alt or do you change them up occasionally? Why?

Oh this is a good question. Yesterday when I introduced you to my bank alt I mentioned that the bling she was sporting was original, that set has been with my bankers from the very beginning. Now I’m on my third server since I started playing WoW. I originally started playing on US-Maelstrom because that’s …

Official Opening of /r/WoWEconomy, A Gold Making Subreddit, Announced

While the /r/WoWEconomy subreddit has been opened for a few months now, I believe I’ve even talked about it on my blog before, Fluxflashor (@Fluxflashor) took to the main /r/WoW subreddit to announce the opening of the subreddit: Hey guys, gals, goblins, and gnomes! I’d like to announce the official launch of the /r/woweconomy subreddit. This …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 4 – Do you use a banker alt/guild? When did you start doing that & why?

Leigera-the-Noble_thumb.png

Yes, I do have a bank alt and dedicated guild bank, in fact they’ve been featured somewhat frequently on my blog. For those who aren’t familiar, here’s my bank alt, Leigera, standing in front of an open guild vault. While some people advocate using multiple banking alts I keep all my transactions through the one …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 3–What Were the First Techniques/Tricks/Tips You Used When Starting Out?

I mentioned on day one that the one of the first things I did to make gold was to go flying around Northrend mining ore, and then either selling that ore or prospecting the ore and selling the gems. What I didn’t admit is that I’d often go farming mobs in Icecrown, simply killing group …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 2 – If you set yourself a goal, what was your goal & at what point did you set it?

I touched on this in my previous post in the series, but my first gold making goal was the, then prestigious, Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth. I had seen my Guild Master at the time sporting one, and was baffled that anyone in the game could make that much gold to afford such a thing. When I …
