    I had a question that may benefit many others so I thought I would make a new topic for it, otherwise it will get lost in the hundred posts per day in the big wow thread...

    I am have never been good at getting gold in WOW... been playing since the game came out off and on and I am always short on gold... My current method of farming involves lots of questing and Dailies and farming ore... This does not seem to be as lucrative as I would like it to be...

    I play a 80 pally with a main spec of Holy and a secondary spec of Ret
    I have mining and BS right now and do not want to change those (they took forever to lvl up and a lot of money...)

    I raid a lot now that ulduar is out and with it being progression raiding it is a lot of high repair bills... So I need to make as much gold as I can in the little time I have playing that I am not raiding...

    any suggestions?

    Person makes $40/hr in real life. $40 buys him 5000g or whatever it is.

    Takes said person 10-12 hours of game time to make same amount.

    For some people, time is more valuable than money.

    i dont has $$ to do that but yea, some people do.

    plus, for some people, it's just not fun to farm for hours to make the gold. they'd rather just spend a couple real dollars and get on with playing.

    my bro-n-law did that awhile back with asheron's call. he'd get so fed up with trying to level that he'd break keyboards, computer cases, headphones. it was actually cheaper for him to buy a high level char than to keep trying to level one. :rofl:

    I buy from time to time. I'd rather spend a few bucks and enjoy the game, instead of logging in dreading that I need to go farming. As long as the gold farmers dont hurt the game or the people playing it, I have no problem with it. The farmers in wow are not even noticable, so it doesnt bother me.

    I still run my dailies and herb/mine along the way as my primary source of income, but dropping $20 every few months isnt a big concern to me.

    I actually enjoy farming. I just throw on some good music in iTunes and go for a few hours. Mainly late at night when no one is on :mamoru:

    Plus I like to see how much I can make in a day.

    you should buy another copy of the game, make a noob on HIS server, then pay for a server swap with your new character to your current server, then transfer gold, then delete your noob, then ftw 10 times as much as for gnome as for blood elf except when for hunter but not for warrior?

    Here's how I make gold.

    I have a 450/450 Jewelcrafter/miner.


    I have a another character with 450 Alchemy. Using alchemy I transmute 8 saronite bars into 1 titanium bar every single day.

    Takes me minutes to gather the mats to make 8 bars.

    I mail the titanium bars to my Jewelcrafter who goes out and does the Jewelcrafting Daily which literally takes no more than 5 minutes a day and you get rewarded with 1 jewelcrafting token.

    This jewelcrafter has the recipe to make "Titanium Spellshock Ring" which is an awesome caster ring and it's SOCKETED which makes it even more attractive to buyers.

    Every 4 days I turn in the token's i've earned from the super fast dailies for 4 dragon's eyes (these alone sell for 125g each easy on my server).

    Then i go to ORG and BUY 4 eternal air, 4 eternal water, 1 frozen orb because I'm too lazy to farm for these and don't have badges to trade for the orb. That's about... 50+16+60 avg... so 126 G invested.

    I craft the spellshock ring and sell it easily for 800G-1000G depending on the competition and it sells fast.

    So all together I spend no more than minutes a day and every 4 days I churn out a ring and make hundreds of gold. I've been doing this since christmas so i've piled up a bunch of gold already :o

    I sell ore and eternals and herbs also sell crafted items also from my JC and BS and make good money with decent amount of effort.

    I also love farming, I put music on in itunes also and could spend 4 or 5 hours flying about basin and icecrown gathering shit.

    I haven't logged onto my bank alt to sell shit in quite some time. I'm sure there's like 10 pages of mail full of shit that I've sent to it.

    the sons of hodir's dailies take around 25 mins max to do and it makes you a little less than 100g

    if you do herblism, it's non-stop herb picking in the area.

    you'll get at last 1 stack of herbs you can sell for 30g

    so that's 130g everyday for 25mins spent, excluding the drops you get from killing the mobs
