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

Recommended Posts

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

      The final raid of the Shadowlands has returned in the Fated rotation and as the Sepulcher returns, so does Warlock domination. We do see a lot of movement this week, however, especially in the generalist bracket and Heroic, with Fury seeing a surge.
      An important note before we begin: as the Fated raids are switching out each week, our comparisons to the previous weeks will be a little less relevant, but we'll still mention it for context - just keep in mind it won't be a direct comparison from week to week as it was before.
      Mythic
      95th Percentile
      While Demonology being at the top is a forgone conclusion at this point and at least until the pre-patch, this past week was a win for Warlocks even if we ignore the top spec, as Destro is back in 2nd! We didn't quite see a purple trifecta, as Affliction remains near the bottom, but is still much better off than in the Sanctum. The rest of the top 5 remained the same, as Elemental, Frost DK and Fury made room for Destro, with Unholy bringing the next bit of upwards movement. Retribution remains in 9th and Shadow climbs 2 up to close out the top 10. Feral claims the bottom spot this time around, as Assassination gets a reprieve and Enhancement finds itself in the bottom 3 as well.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      Fury actually surprises in the generalist bracket, as it went up from its usually best placement in the Sanctum, grabbing the third spot behind the Warlocks here in the Sepulcher. Survival makes its way past Frost DK, which in turn leaps over Elemental, which is now sandwiched between two Death Knights. Retribution drops 2 to the bottom of the top 10, as Outlaw remains stable in 9th. Feral finds itself at the bottom here as well, this time joined by two Mage specs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      Heroic is looking very different from Mythic this time around, as Destro finds itself in the bottom three instead of the top (even dropping one spot lower than last week), Survival is 2nd and Outlaw 3rd, the same as they were in the Sanctum. Fire stays in a strong 4th, joined by Fury which leaps a big 4 spots and pushes Shadow out of the way, with Balance also surging this week, up 5. However, Enhancement is the biggest mover this week, gaining 8 spots to land in 8th, just ahead of the DK twins.

      Majusbeh recreated some Warcraft zones in Unreal Engine 5. The project is one of the best UE recreations out there because it preserves the game's art style without making it look too artificial.
      The project took longer than expected, according to the OP. The video posted on Reddit includes iconic zones like Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Durotar, Ironforge, Booty Bay, and others.
