The Ultimate WoW Gold Farming Guide
While World of Warcraft players have been amassing gold for over a decade already, being able to gather relevant and useful info regarding making gold has always been a daunting task – until now. Presenting – the ultimate WoW Gold Farming guide!
Now you’ll have the chance to read some pretty revealing information that’ll help you skyrocket your gold-making potential. Sure, crafting, trading and providing services are all viable options for amassing gold, but the farming part often gets overlooked by most players.
That’s why today’s post is entirely focused on helping you with your gold farming goals in 2018. And apart from some interesting and profitable farming spots that you probably didn’t know about, we’ll also share with you the most accessible and most straightforward that’ll guarantee you stacks of gold!
What does WoW Gold Farming mean in the first place?
Farming is the recurring process of gathering particular resources with the intention to make a profit. You can farm a myriad of things, but all of them fall under one of the following three categories:
And these resources can be obtained from two things:
- Killing mobs
- Gathering raw materials via the gathering professions (skinning, mining, and herbalism)
Oh, and don’t forget that rolling a Goblin toon is your best bet if you want to maximize your gold-making potential, thanks to their neat racial called Best Deals Anywhere.
Now, since everyone loves killing mobs, we’re now going take a look at the five most valuable farming spots that require you to kill stuff.
What are the 4 best farming spots stack up on gold in 7.3.5.?
- Shadowfang Keep
- Twilight Outposts
- Felspore Bog Lords
Gold earning potential: 25k – 70k (per hour)
Location: Badlands, Eastern Kingdoms (Azeroth)
Restocking low-level transmog and Uldaman go hand in hand. This is a classic dungeon of vanilla that’s been around since WoW’s initial installment and it offers some fantastic gold earning potential.
Each Ulduman run will reward with a few thousand gold and on top of that, there are a plethora of rare transmog beauties, which cost a fortune on the AH that can drop in the same dungeon, such as:
- Pendulum of Doom
Average buyout price on the AH – 2.201.500 gold
- Papal Fez
Average buyout price on the AH – 1.000.000 gold
- Ginn-Su Sword
Average buyout price on the AH – 217.472 gold
- Pattern: Star Belt
Average buyout price on the AH – 196.996 gold
- The Shoveler
Average buyout price on the AH – 23.584 gold
- Excavator’s Brand
Average buyout price on the AH – 16.434 gold
So, it’s safe to say that the gold-earning potential of this instance is, to put it mildly, mind-blowing.
2. Shadowfang Keep
Gold earning potential: 12k – 215k (per hour)
Location: Silverpine Forest, Eastern Kingdoms (Azeroth)
Did somebody say restocking 18-22 transmog? Oh, well the ideal place for that is called Shadowfang Keep – a lowbie dungeon dating back to the glorious vanilla days that’s currently a great farming spot.
Doing Shadowfang Keep runs won’t be very time-consuming and the earning potential is quite spectacular. And although most of the drops will be disenchanting junk or just not-so-great ones, there are rarer transmog drops that can more than makeup for that, such as:
- Gloomshroud Armor
Average buyout price on the AH – 143.616 gold
Average buyout price on the AH –163.384 gold
Average buyout price on the AH – 80.965 gold
- Assassin’s Blade
Average buyout price on the AH – 33.325 gold
- Mindthrust Bracers
Average buyout price on the AH – 11.887 gold
- Night Reaver
Average buyout price on the AH –11.052 gold
Burnished Mail set
Bandit Garb set
The Spellbinder collection
Note that some of these items are super, mega, uber rare (like 0.5% drop rate) and it’d take you quite a few runs (depending on your luck) to acquire them.
3. Twilight Outposts
Gold earning potential: 10k – 150k (per hour)
Location: Silithus, Kalimdor (Azeroth)
These farming spots are located in the north-west part of Silithus, and the two camps (they are next to each other) that you should focus on are named:
- Twilight Post
- Twilight Base
Now, in order to get the most of your farming efforts in these Twilight camps, you’ll need a lvl. 58 toon. Unarguably the fastest and easiest way to do that if you don’t have any characters at this level is to create a Death Knight and storm to Silithus.
As for the actual gold potential of these two spots, it’s probably enough to just mention that you have a good chance of getting a transmog gem (not literally), known as Glorious Legplates (costs 154.926 on the AH) that drops from the Twilight mobs there.
4. Felspore Bog Lords
Gold earning potential: 10k – 100k (per hour)
Location: Blasted Lands, Eastern Kingdoms (Azeroth)
By heading over to the Blasted Lands (where the Dark Portal was initially opened during TBC) and going to a particularly obscure region called The Tainted Forest (the southwestern tip of the whole area). This place is level 57-59 tansmog galore!
Needless to say, by farming this spot you’ll be able to get your hands on a hefty amount of transmog gear that you can then sell for profit.
Also, since we’re talking about Blasted Lands mobs here, these Bog Lords might drop Imperfect Draenethyst Fragments. These neat fragments can be then turned in at an NPC that goes by the name of Kum’isha the Collector and for each piece you return, he rewards you with some fresh gear that by selling, you increase your revenue even more.
Wrapping It Up
WoW Gold Farming is not exactly rocket science, isn’t it? By focusing your efforts on particular zones in the game, you’ll be able to generate a healthy amount of gold per hour, so that you have plenty of it to spend on whatever you feel like spending.
Still, farming is time-consuming and it might be a struggle for those of you who have jobs, families and other real life responsibilities. What do you do then – is there a solution that will still earn you boatloads of gold, only with a few simple clicks?
