WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-Up
Welcome to the 61st edition of the WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-up! In this edition we're looking at the Hallow's End season event, gold-making in Vanilla/Classic WoW plus breaking down the basics of gold-making during your daily play time.
If you're new to this series or want to re-visit past posts, you can
check out the previous articles right here on wowhead.com
My name is
and I’m the lead moderator for the
and the accompanying
. I am also the Support/Community Manager & User Evangelist for
, the Auction House addon suite for World of Warcraft. I stream on Twitch for
and my focus is on mentoring and tutoring the WoW community in all things gold-making. I hope to cover and showcase some of the interesting topics, discussions, content and guides that have been going on over the last week in the gold making community. Some that you might have missed as a veteran gold maker, or you might be interested in checking out for the first time as a new or aspiring ‘goblin’.
The format will not be that of a traditional guide, but links to further reading with commentary and opinions of my own. I will be looking at the bigger picture, the decision making and thought processes in being a gold maker – rather than a step by step instructional list. As the saying goes, “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.
Hallow's End Event
It's that time of year when the trick or treaters are out in force, and it's time to make some gold during Hallow's End!
You can check out the full guide here on Wowhead.com for what's new this year:
Full details in our
Hallow's End Guide
And I hand over to our friend StudenAlbatroz to recap the two primary ways to make gold during the event. Farming candy buckets or farming mobs for
수많은 얼굴의 동전
These kinds of holiday events are often a new gold-makers first introduction to the economy and will use them as the final 'okay this is it! I'm going to start making gold!' prompt. This can be dangerous if you're completely new to being a goblin, as I've seen situations where time investment is disproportionately high in the holiday-related items and it's being approached as a 'I'm investing so much time in this one thing that everyone is saying I'll make lots of gold on, I'm sure to be rich!'.
A holiday market is kind of similar to a traditional 'seasonal' market, where the items or goods become a lot more accessible and therefore causing prices to take a tumble. This teaches one of the first important lessons in gold-making. It's okay to not make a sale immediately, sometimes you have to invest or think in the long-term. You're certainly going to make more gold if you participate in a holiday or seasonal market after that particular period is over and the supply decreases. Let's take a look at
as a seasonally accessible pet for example:
The increase in supply right back to last year's Hallow's End event caused the price to drop, as the available quantity on the AH decreased the price started to increase. The lowest available quantity being in the months leading up to the event. Maybe it's even more likely to make a sale during this time too as people start to read about what's coming up in the game and they decide to just buy it there-and-then. Impulse buyers are great for this kind of market.
The event runs through until November 1st so there's a bit of time to run some alts around Azeroth picking up candy, or farming some

to sprinkle on to the Auction House throughout the following year.
Which holiday event is your favourite to make gold with? How many Coins of Many Faces do you have stocked to sell? Will you be picking the candy buckets this year?
Classic WoW has been discussed a lot this week in the community. I'm not sure if it's the lack of interest in the current game prompting players and gold-makers to think of this at the moment but there have been some great strategies and reminiscing on vanilla WoW economies.
/u/Tekn0de shared some of their insights and tips for gold-making in vanilla WoW
Unlike retail, if you want to be a goblin you're class choice is gonna matter. Grinding/farming is way more effective of a gold making strategy in vanilla than retail due to the higher relative vendor price of greys as well as green/blue items (not including disenchanting). There is really on 2 classes in this discussion: Hunter (which you'll use to solo dungeon content you shouldn't normally be able to solo) and mage (which you'll use to aoe grind a bunch of grey items to vendor). Now based on what we know, Dire Maul North Tribute runs being soloable by hunters is blizzlike, and if this is the case, hunter is the clear choice for the class to choose, at least only in terms of gold making opportunities. As far as raiding is considered hunters suck.
Now it may seem odd to have a leveling section here, but leveling will probably make up the first 250+ hours of your game time (average /played is about 10.5 days to 60 even among private server players who have probably leveled 5 toons to 60 by now) so it's important to keep this in mind when leveling. First off before you even hit level 10: GET A BANK ALT. I made that stand out to really emphasize it's importance. Bag space is very limited in vanilla and you will need a bank alt if you really want to make the most money because otherwise you're gonna be deleting greys for quest items. every time you walk by a mailbox, vendor your greys and mail pretty much everything else to your bank alt. Also try to ah pretty much anything you can. Mystery meat, raptor flesh, or star ruby, I don't care trust me theres a million recipes in vanilla and generally everything will sell. Secondly, pre-60 just take skinning + mining/herbalism, it really doesn't matter which and mine/skin anything you can.
Everyone starts at 0 in vanilla (unless there is wow tokens) so you're gonna need some starting capital/something to do at 60. Disclaimer, while private servers do their best to mirror vanilla these values change quite a bit between servers so its unknown how each of the farms will do, and the values are kinda arbitrary, though its pretty much agreed upon DM North tribute runs are probably the best farming method.
DM North Tribute runs (Hunter): 100-120+g/hour
DM East farming (Mage): 50-80g/hour
Mauradon Princess runs (Hunter): 50+g/hour
BRD farming (Mage): 50+g/hour (though this may not work in vanilla)
Bonus: Shatterspear troll farming (mage only and its exclusive to alliance) is 80-100g/hour and also allows you to afk level alts, but the location is out of bounds so it is likely you couldn't farm there in classic.
Flips and Trade/World chat
One of my most consistent money makers in vanilla was buying items cheaply from people in world chat and putting it on the ah. When someone says something like "WTS " just whisper them and ask the price and compare it to the price on the ah. I've made easy 50+g flips because people wanted to sell their items quickly and didn't want to wait for it to sell on the ah. Some good items/mats to look to flip are the devilsaur set (its bis for every physical damage class), devilsaur leather, arcanite bars (used for many high level blacksmithing recipes), twink items (you can find lists online), arcane crystals, elemental fire/anything for fire resistance consumables (especially early on in the server), and of course raid boes.
Professions are a bit weird in vanilla. I'd say in general most professions don't make you a whole lot of gold outside of certain specific ways they make gold.
and pretty much everything else is vendor price
routes at 60
Mining: Doing diremaul east farms (miner + healer) for rich thorium veins/
Alchemy: The main money makers are transmuting
, crafting high level flasks, and transmuting cheap essences to more expensive essences.
Enchanting: Offering high level enchants for peoples gear, and disenchanting bop gear in some cases (enchanting is probably the most consistent money maker)
Engineering: Doesn't make any gold
Blacksmithing: One of the best ways is offering very specific late game crafting recipes like
which are great money makers if you can be one of the like 3 people on the server lucky enough to have it (its really rare)
Tailoring: can make some money on your
cooldown, but selling bags with cheap mats is about as good as it gets. Alot of your best craftable gear is bop so tailoring isnt insane for gold making.
Leatherworking: Doesn't really make a whole lot but crafting items like the devilsaur set and hide of the wild often makes you some profit.
Fishing: Farming raid consumables/deviate fish in barrens, honestly fishing is crazy gold/hour if you can stomach it.
TL;DR: Go hunter, farm diremaul north/mauradon, try to get in on the devilsaur mafia/devilsaur farm, monitor trade chat for good deals.
/u/Pravus_Belua also had some profitable pointers for Classic
I will share how I made so much gold in Vanilla. I catered nearly exclusively to end-game raiders and PvP twinks.
These little beauties right here were my Vanilla WoW goldmines:
무기 마법부여 - 민첩성
양손 무기 마법부여 - 민첩성
. They are the top-end agility weapon enchants in Vanilla and once I had them I was set.
I worked my reputation with the
(Furbolgs in the tunnel) up to Honored as quickly as I could so I could buy the formulas and then I set to work. I would farm for a couple days to build inventory and would sell in the days after. Usually after PvP rankings were in and/or during peak raiding days on my server.
For my farm I'd use a Druid and I would spend the first day doing the Scarlet Monastery Library, stealth running Arcanist Doan for items to DE into
눈부신 큰 결정
(This was before they nerfed his loot to DE into glimmering shards instead, probably got tired of people stealthing their way straight to the top-end shard at the time. This may not work in Classic WoW if they keep this change. You might need to find another source for LBS).
Whenever I hit the instance/hour lockout, or after I had a good pile of shards, I'd go to northwest Silithus and farm the air elementals for
When it was time I'd bark in trade chat offering those enchants (Remember, there's no vellum in Vanilla WoW. Enchants had to be done in person and through the trade window using the "will not be traded" slot.).
I would easily get a couple hundred gold for each enchant, depending on the variant. That was no small amount of coin back then, and I was rolling in it.
If you have the
무기 마법부여 - 성전사
too, well, that's some delicious gold colored icing for your cake.
Speaking of Classic WoW, Wowhead.com recently announced their plans to provide a Classic-flavoured version of the site,

Were you a gold-maker in vanilla WoW? Are you going to focus on gold-making in Classic WoW when it's released?
Back to Basics
Reckles aka WTBGold
put together a
great video this week going back to basics
and I think it brings up a lot of great points that are easily forgotten or overlooked as a new gold-maker.
Some key points to take away:
Don't skip looting anything, vendor trash adds up!
Don't skip any gathering nodes such as herbs, ore and fishing pools
Get in to the habit of posting stuff on the Auction House, even if it's only a few items that aren't worth anything. Posting frequently means higher chance of sales
Now that the mission table gold rewards aren't generally worth targeting it's important to maintain that 'baseline' gold revenue that was relied upon by so many players. Adopting a small amount of goblin and gold-making frame of mind will help you to never be 'broke' as Reckles puts it. It can even help you get that starting investment capital you need to start escalating and elevating your gold-making to the next level.
/u/MadalsSC2 asks how they can progress from the beginner goblin
At the start of BFA, with a lot less time to play I decided I no longer wanted to be poor in game (stress about raid mats etc). I started my journey pretty well by farming herbs early on and making some cash selling pots and flasks when raids started (only a few profitable pots per day on my server). That got me up to my first 300k gold (more than I have ever had!)
While continuing with step 1, I also added in flipping BFA mats for some extra ah income, usually shopping 2 to 3 times per day and posting at the same time. This, along with a lucky BOE from uldir mythic has got me up to 900k. This is where I seem to have hit a bit of a wall, the easy flips and farming are now just a steady stream of gold (about 10 to 20k gold per day) but by no means going to make me rich.
Looking for next steps or options that can increase my gold per day.
BFA mats I am already topping out the viable ones for my server. The others are either too competitive or too volatile. Could look at high risk items that are slow moving (eg flipping boes or rare mounts etc) but my concern here is I don't have the capital to risk for a decent return.
10-20k gold per day is certainly nothing to be sniffed at! This will add up over the course of your playtime and will definitely be paying for a token or two per month depending on your region.
Once you've got the little things down, it's all about diversification and ensuring that 10-20k is being increased from different markets and sources. It's sometimes great to double-down on a particular market however if something changes due to a patch, hotfix or some other meta reason and the market crashes you're set to lose a lot more than you would if you spread out your efforts.
/u/stevebobby expands on diversifying
For me, it's a constant ebb and flow of change that depends, in part, to my server, the time of the week, and the time of the year (special events, etc). Right now, I'm making a steady stream from consumables, flasks, a few weeks ago it was crafted mounts. When the warfront contribution drops, I'll go in that direction.
My point is, it's diversification. I also am always on the look out here for suggestions, people will occasionally drop information about how they are making gold in a somewhat obscure market. For example, do you sell any of the Waist of Time Belt items? They are
. What about the
Things like this provide a a constant slow trickle and they do add up. To succeed with small things like this you have to always be on the look out to buy the mats for these at a low cost
These suggestions are server dependent.
How much do you think you've lost out on by skipping loot? Do you recall selling anything under value before you started thinking like a gold-maker?
