wow Gold Making: Trial By Fel Fire and early Legion gold!

7 posts in this topic

Professions can be very lucrative early in expansions - Peelyon gives a short run down how to make some early Legion gold!

Introduction

Hey folks!  I hope you are enjoying Legion as much as I am.  The first few weeks can be crazy for gold making and I'm hoping to give you a few tips in this article to help you along the way.  Hopefully you will all be well on your way to levelling to max.  This article won't go into TOO much detail as to how to learn the recipes for all of the items I will discuss (it would be far too long), but Wowhead is pretty useful if you get stuck anywhere!  (I have completed LW so if you have any questions about that I should be ok to answer!)

The next few articles will be fairly short and sweet as I focus on a small area of gold making but remember one of my gold making rules.  

Think about what players are doing in game right now.  What do they want? What do they need? What content is available?  Answering these questions will give you a lot of opportunities to make gold.  So think about the beginning of an expansion, what players  do differently etc.  On the flip side, think about what players don't want or need.  Don't spend hours listing 100's of items players probably won't buy.  Spend that time elsewhere improving your own character, questing, farming.

Professions

Blizzard wanted to go big with professions for Legion and so far from my own experiences on Live servers (and a little in beta) they have done a great job.  Gathering professions will earn you a lot of gold if you can get the materials onto the auction house regularly as players are desperate to craft a whole plethora of items.  Crafting professions have a chance to produce much needed gear for players who are struggling to obtain item level to enter heroic dungeons and start the gearing process fast for their raid teams.

If you have never used professions before now is a great time to start.  Again I won't go into too much detail but needless to say levelling your toon to 110 should be a priority, and pushing through the long quest chains as you level with speed up the process.  Combine profession quests (some require dungeons) with your own levelling to be more efficient.  

Trial By Felfire

The Obliterium Forge is used to improve crafted items.  To unlock it you must embark on a fairly long quest chain and one of the early quests requires you to "turn in" four crafted bracers one for each armour class.

As it is very early in the expansion most crafters will only be able to create one or two for themselves so there is quite a bit of room for profit as long as you can get involved sooner rather than later and prices drop!

The above bracers are available after a large number of quests in your particular profession.  I do hope to get some profession guides out in the future but if you are looking to push them early and make this early gold then just get stuck in to them!

Here is a sale from the other day.

Don't forget, if you don't have any crafting professions you can still capitalise by selling the raw materials on the AH!

Crafting slots other than the bracers (for gearing) can be great as well so ensure you are providing a wide range of items!  So if the prices on bracers have dropped already ensure you offer the other slots to maximise your gold!

Wrap Up

I wanted to get this article out as fast as possible as prices will drop pretty fast over the next week!  Is there anything you want me to focus on?  Any questions put them below and I'll do my best to answer them.  Good luck and look out for my articles over the new few weeks!

I've always been a Tailor. But two items needing leatherworking is tempting. I've heard that now in Legion, it's better to have gathering and crafting, instead of two crafting ones. Is that true?

I believe the gathering/crafting vs. double crafting came about due to the Blood of Sargeras. Personally, I went with G/C just to have the early gold at the start from selling materials. That influx of gold from selling herbs was awesome.

Is that gone? Only now I've been able to get my main going. Still 104 though. Trying to level as fast as possible. =(

It's sort of still there. Prices are definitely starting to settle as supply goes up, it just varies depending on the realm. You won't find many of the crazy high prices that you do in the first few days though.

Damn. I was making  a killing with Skulls of War, but now they aren't gonna sell. I was hoping I could find a better way to get gold with this, but seems I'm late to the party. Thanks for the info. I'm not made to be rich xD

Good luck finding a new way to make gold! I'm sure @Peelyon can help with his guides in the future :P

      A preview of Tier 21 Sets dropping in Antorus, the Burning Throne raid added in Patch 7.3.
      Antorus won't be opening immediately when Patch 7.3 goes live, but at a later point, just like the Tomb of Sargeras. Tier 21 Set bonuses aren't available at this time.
      In this article, we're previewing Normal difficulty Tier 21 Sets. Mythic difficulty Tier 21 Sets can be found here.

      Lightforged Golem is one of 7.3 mounts that deserves a separate preview. It has unique animations and it's quite probable that it will be related to Antorus, the Burning Throne raid as a reward for completing Glory of the Argus Raider.
      Below are screenshots of the mount including the /mountspecial animation.

      A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.
      Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Description
      Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.
      Antoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

      Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread
      The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.
