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 …

Value and Cost

There seems to be a bad habit in the gold making community where many players seem to confuse what an item costs and what it’s value or worth is. Unfortunately this isn’t just contained in the digital world, many people get confused by this in the real world as well, so throughout this post I’ll …

Ding! Gold Cap!

It took me way to long, but I did it, I hit the 999,999g99s99c mark (and then some, the mailbox won’t top off your gold, so I had to syphon some into the guild bank). I was pretty excited when I realized the game wouldn’t let me loot any more gold from the mailbox, and …
