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 …
