20 Days of Gold Making: Day 10–Do You Farm Materials? Why? Why Not? And Which Ones, Where?

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this many times before not only on this blog, but on my Twitter and on /r/WoWEconomy as well, but I hate farming. Hate it hate it hate it. Always have, probably always will. It always has just seemed like too much work, and usually for too little reward. It’s not …

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

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 …
