WoW Gold Guide

Hey everyone,

Haven't had much time lately to update, so I apologize for that. Hopefully over these holiday months I will have more time to invest here. I've been playing WoW though, and that's been good fun since WotLK was released. As such, I figured I'd include this article (since I don't have time to write one of my own) in the spirit of the game. So, check it out, I think these are some useful tips!

"Great Gold Making Spots"

Angerclaw Maulers

Head into Felwood and find a nice cluster of Angerclaw Maulers. These guys respawn pretty fast so when you kill all of them in an area, the first ones you killed will start to respawn and you won't have much downtime. Even though they don't necessarily drop a lot of higher end items, you will get a lot of stackable Claws, Jaws, Bones, etc... that sell very well as vender trash. On top of that, you can skin them and make even more money off of the Leather that you sell at the Auction House. On average, this will bring in about 40 Gold per hour. Whelps in the Badlands

A good spot for a low level 40 is the Eastern Side of the Badlands. Here you will find a LOT of Whelps, mainly the Scalding Whelps. They can do a good amount of damage but their hit points are low so you should be able to solo these just fine. They drop a lot of leather, a handful of blue items and a lot of very nice greens. I wasn't even grinding these guys and I got a Dark Whelpling for one of my drops. If you're a skinner, you'll definitely love this spot because you will get experience, gold/loot, and you can skin these guys.

Power Crystals

There are several different colored power crystals needed in order to complete the Crystals of Power quest which is given by J.D. Collie in Un'Goro. These blue, green, red, and yellow crystals can be found all over Un'Goro and are very easy to collect because they are usually a safe distance away from most mobs. When you go to sell the crystals, I have found that they sell best in stacks of 7 because that's how many of each color are needed to turn in for the quest. I have seen a small stack of 7 sell for as much as 1 Gold which equates to about 3 Gold for every 20 that you collect. In an hour I was able to collect about 90 power crystals which comes to about 13 Gold. Another thing to be aware of is that you can utilize the Gatherer Mod to help you locate these a LOT faster. While this isn't a 50+ gold per hour strategy that everyone is looking for, it is something that is very easy to do. Also, because there are a few other Un'Goro gold making strategies listed in this guide such as Skinning Devilsaurs and Gorillas or collecting Essences of Fire, you can essentially be doing one of those in addition to collecting the power crystals all at the same time.

Crusader Enchant

The Formula: Enchant Weapon - Crusader is one of the most sought after formulas in the game. There is only one place to get one of these (besides the Auction House) and that is from the Scarlet Spellbinders which can be found at the tower on your way up to Heartglen. Click here to see a map of where you can find them. While you may have to invest some time before it drops, don't forget that this formula is worth anywhere from 250 to 350 Gold! In addition to the Crusader Enchant, you will find a lot of other nice green and blue items along the way including some of the cards that make up the Elementals, Portals, and Warlords decks. As long as this place isn't being farmed, you will have no problem making the money to justify your time up here. If this area is heavily occupied at the time, you would be better off using one of these other strategies and try coming back at a different time when it's less crowded. I have personally done this before and found mine in about 4 hours. With the profit I made from the formula as well as the other items I found during this time, it came out to be about 100 Gold an Hour for my time. If you are looking for a little more encouragement to get you going up here, someone else in my guild got it around their 15th kill which they obviously got very lucky but just to let you know that it could drop at any time.

Demonslaying Enchant

Over in the Southwest Corner of Azshara west of Forlorn Ridge, you will find some Highborne Apparitions and some Highborne Lichling. They don't have too many hit points which means you can kill a ton of these things in a short amount of time. These guys drop a lot of mageweave, as well as some nice green and blue items. I have also gotten quite a few Patterns and Plans such as Formula: Enchant Weapon -Demonslaying. On average this should make you about 40 Gold Per Hour depending on how much this area is being hit at the time.
