In WoW Classic professions are an integral part of the game and will be important in every phase. While some professions can help to make items that you will use for raiding and PvP professions are also an excellent way to make gold. If your primary goal is to make gold
Play the Auction House
The Auction House is one of those hidden gems that can help you earn lots of gold in WoW. The basic premise is buying low and selling high. The other thing to do is to corner the market. Buy up all of an item (usually a trade skill item—herbs, metal, etc.) and resell them at a much higher price. It requires constant commitment, though.
To get the flow of gold going, you will have to let your items expire and then re-list them immediately. You have to find new items to buy depending on what is the demand at the time, so ensure you keep up with the trends of what item is needed at any given time. A new patch can throw the market into chaos, which is the best time to pick up a lot of gold or a lot of items cheaply.
The Auction House has gone through a lot of changes to prevent scams, so while it may not be the gold mine it once was, it can still be profitable.
Gathering professions are generally a good pick for making gold in vanilla WoW. In the professions section of the guide we will go over methods to make gold with all professions.
Skinning is a very good choice to go with while leveling and if you farm a lot. If you are trying to get your mount at level 40, you can easily make some extra gold just by skinning while leveling and vendoring everything.
Skinning is also very good for Mages as they can AoE farm and kill/skin a lot of mobs quickly.
Mining is another solid pick for making gold, and especially while leveling. Just mine whatever ore you come by as you level up.
Herbalism is not as good as mining and skinning while you are leveling up, although still decent. At max level this is perhaps the best gold farming profession.
Enchanting is also a good profession to have, but don’t have it on your main. Have it on you bank alt, which we will talk more about in the next segment.
In World of Warcraft, ‘farming’ is the process of repeatedly killing enemies, ideally in large groups, to ‘farm’ them for experience or loot.
If making money if your goal, then it’s the latter you’re most interested in. Whether it’s out in the world or within a dungeon, pulling groups of enemies, downing them with AOE, and repeating can net you both raw gold and a variety of items to sell.
When it comes to specifics, it’s going to be a case of what works best for you. You can blast through lower-level content alone, or group up to tackle tougher opponents. Some farming strategies aim for uncommon gear drops to sell on the auction house, while others will be more reliable in offering coin and crafting materials like cloth.
Some classes are stronger at farming than others – Mages particularly excel due to their huge range of AOE and kiting tools – and so your class choice will also influence what might be best to farm for you, and whether you group up or go it alone.
With so many potential locations in which to farm, it’s worth trying out a few different approaches without sinking too many hours into them initially to get a sense for what you find easiest, most enjoyable, and most profitable.
Farming is also a very effective levelling strategy if you’re working in content that’s within your level – either world monsters or dungeons with a group – so if you’re all about that endgame then it’s definitely worth considering along the way. For others, it might only come into play when you specifically need to make money for a big payment like a mount.
