Need some advice on how to raise my gold.

#1 Unread post by Hisae » Thu Jul 10, 2014 8:55 pm

Hi guys, I'm at a loss and I'm not sure where else to turn. I need advice in the making of gold. I'm a slow money maker and I mean SLOW. :cry: How do you guys do it to make so much?

My 90 gnome Mage is a tailor/herb and I've been using my farm to grow herbs and I have been selling all stacks of 20 I get, highest maker is Golden Lotus. I'm up to 22k gold now.

My baby Pandaren hunter is mining/herbalism but I've dropped herb and now I'm going to pick up JC so I can prospect for gems to sell. My hunter is level 48 but in 12 levels going to boost at 60. She has 1325 gold right now.

Are there any other pointers you all can give? I really, really, want to get the green, yellow, and my ultimate goal, the Jeweled Onyx Panther!!!!!

Guys, you have been so amazing!

Personally I make gold selling the leg enchants from leather working. I was up to 230k before I bought a weapon for my cousin and made myself the Ruby Panther. I also sell a lot of greens I find as well as the Direhorn Runt I get when I'm farming leather. I make about 200g each from them on my realm (Which I just noticed was your realm as well haha)

And if you are 90 do EVERY quest in Pandaria. It's alot of gold once you hit max. and alot of green items are going for 200g or more on the AH due to transmogging

YAY! Flight Rising! Rawr!

I'm a casual AH flipper. Buy low, sell high. This works well if you're willing and able to take a risk and enjoy this type of activity.

I started with about 10k as investment and after spending a few days tracking things I was interested in (like profession mats, raiding mats like enchants, etc) I dove in. I now keep around 20k in gold purely for investing (plus a varying amount in material assets), so any gold over that 20k is money I can spend at my leisure.

If I push myself I can make up to 25k a week but I'm usually way, way too lazy to do that. :p

I actually buy herbs - (about 50-75 stacks at a time if the price is right - under 25g a stack) and then make them into Fortune Cards - I usually just about break even with making BOE shoulder enchants from the greens that pop milling - the fortune cards are then mostly profit.

I recommend this method if Fortune Cards sell OK on your server- and also if you're not on my server- I don't want competition :)
