20 Days of Gold Making: Day 9–What’s Your Favourite Niche Market and Why?

I don’t like niche markets. In fact, I hate them. I’ve tried dabbling in niche markets before, but I hated them and quickly dropped them, they were typically too much work for not enough profit. One of the largest of what some might call niche markets I worked was vendor pets and items. Oh, don’t …

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 …

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 …

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.

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 …

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 1 – When I Started Making Gold and What Triggered It

This post is part of Cold’s Gold Blogging Carnival and Day 1 of Nev of Auction House Addict’s 20 Days of Gold Making. I’ve been making gold for a long time, and I can’t really recall when I started. I know I was making gold before Cataclysm (can’t believe that’s over two years ago now, …
