Gold Making: 3 Simple Steps to Increase your Gold

31 posts in this topic

Peelyon outlines a few key steps that can help you make more gold, regardless how much you have!

Introduction

I wanted to highlight a few very simple things that can help almost any player increase their overall gold, as sometimes you can lose sight of the basics when grinding.  This thread is meant to be light-hearted but the tips will actually work if you stick to them.

With the Legion launch there have been a great number of returning players.  If you have had similar experiences to me, prices for items have been pretty crazy so far and I'm finding more and more players asking the simple question "How do I make more gold?"

There are more gold making "methods" than ever before but rather than going into specifics that can sometimes can be complicated and time consuming, I'm going to go back to basics.

So whether you are a returning player, a player struggling to get to grips with gold making or a gold making veteran - I hope these three simple steps will at least get you focused for making some gold.  

The 3 Simple Steps

1. Don't Spend Gold!

Not to always be taken literally!  If you're raiding you still need to have gold to repair and buy potions and flasks etc, but don't spend gold on unnecessary items.  Some examples:  

  • Buying a 20k mount when you probably won't use it more than 5 times.
  • Changing your transmog continuously (it costs more than you think - the same goes for changing your hairstyles).  
  • Paying premium prices for pets and toys that you probably won't use for a while (and you can buy at a later date when they are much cheaper).  

You get the point.  By making a concerted effort not to spend gold, as well as trying to make gold at the same time, your gold will steadily increase.  Craft what you can, use friends / guildies to make what you need for raids, gearing etc.  The less you spend the more gold in your bags!

2. Don't do anything you don't want to

There are so many gold makers that try and help players to make gold (myself included), but one of the points I make continuously on my stream is that you should never try a gold making method just because you were told to do it.  If it involves game play that you don't find enjoyable then you won't make much gold doing it.  Gold making is meant to be fun and completing tasks that tie in with the way you play the game will yield you more gold in the long run.  So combining gold making with your regular day to day activities that you like doing is better than going out farming herbs if you HATE farming herbs!

If you read / watch / learn about a gold making method but it doesn't appeal to you, find one that does.  You can make gold in almost any game play within World of Warcraft, from the basic farming materials, to crafting, even selling boosts to other players if you are a high end raider / PvPer etc.  If in doubt try a method that doesn't require much investment upfront and give it a try.  That way there is no risk to yourself and if you enjoy it you can carry on and if you don't, you try something else.

3. Motivation is key!

I have touched on this briefly in other articles but it is key to gold making - being demotivated can be the fastest way to spend your gold!  This does link in with point 2 above to some extent, so by keeping things fresh and enjoyable you will keep your motivation up and it will encourage you to make gold.

A great way to keep yourself motivated is to set yourself a gold challenge or a target.  I have set viewers simple challenges before and have found when players put their mind to it they see some great results.  Just make sure your targets are:

  • Realistic

There is no point having 120k and reaching for 1million.  Keep the targets smaller and continually set new ones when you reach them so you don't get stuck hovering around the same amount.

  • Have a set time period 

By setting a time limit it will keep your motivation up and help you grind out that gold faster.

  • Have a reward (optional)

Although you don't want to spend all the gold you earn, having a reward at the end may motivate you as well. So if you struggle with point 1 (spending your gold on non essential items) then feed your addiction with your reward rather than spending the gold in the first place :P

Wrap Up

Remember, all of my gold articles I have written so far are available here.  So if you are looking for a new method check there first (just remember point 2!) 

If you would like some more 1 to 1 advice remember I stream regularly on Twitch and I'm happy to answer your own questions in more depth there.  You can find a link to my Twitch channel here.  

Lastly - if you would like me to set you a goal challenge or a target, post below with your current gold (feel free to add in extra info such as what you enjoy, your professions and a rough amount of time you play per week).

Good luck with gold making folks and keep an eye out for more articles in future!

Alright I have been trying to earn enough gold to buy Tokens through in game mechanics so that I no longer have to spend my real money on subscriptions. I am sitting around 27k right now, I earn most of my gold selling ore (I'm a blacksmith/mining Holy Pally). I generally play 25 hours or so a week, but I am also working towards raiding. Currently sitting at 840 ilvl I am close to being able to do it, but I still do my world quests every day for the chance at epic/mythic drops from boxes and utilizing the artifact power boosts too. I will admit that I am a bit of a mount junkie too, if I see a mount I really like I either go buy it or complete the achievements to attain it. I know that mounts can eat up a lot of my gold, so that's one thing I have been cutting back on since my sub is almost up and I would like to get a token within the next week. Do you think earning 45-50k a month is reasonable while still doing what I'm doing? That gives me about 9-16k to play with towards saving up for a mount in a few months.

So in my head I was being a cynic when I was reading this article, then i got to the transmog tip, I change my mog like 3 times a day XD I stopped and thought about it, if i settled on one i'd probably be able to buy a spider mount in a month XD

great tip :D

Great article! I really enjoyed it. I'm a Ret Pally sitting at around 35K gold right now. I play casually around 15 hours a week. I am a smith and miner, but running around with the sole purpose of mining is not really my gig. I do enjoy running legacy content. I usually run Firelands and ICC every week. I've been told I need to add in a few more to that like Dragon Soul. Is it worth it? Thanks again for the great article. Have an awesome day!

With ore prices the way that they are (on most servers) that doesnt seem out of reach!  Keep checking the prices on the craftable blacksmith gear and make sure you have a good mix of selling the crafts and the actual raw ore at the same time.  The key to having your subscription paid through gold I feel is trying NOT to be hand to mouth every month.  The worst thing for a lot of token grinders is forever dropping back down to really low amounts of gold each and every months.  It demotivates you massively and it turns the gold making into a high pressured grind every single month, with your game time dwindling constantly.

If possible I try and tell people to only buy a token for subscription when they have 2-3 months of potential tokens left over.  That way it takes the pressure off if you have a bad month / prices drop in the markets you are in (so mining and BS) or if your game time suffers.

Go cold turkey for a little while on the mounts until you've built up that safety net first :D

It's really surprising how much it costs :P I bet most people never see the amount of gold it takes and it just whittles away without you knowing!

I hate farming old raids as much as farming for ores :P

However the great thing with a lot of legacy raids is you know its pretty much the same guaranteed gold each and every run, so I totally see the appeal.  As I hate doing it I haven't ran any old instances since Legion launch and I know that the gold values have changed.  All I will say is it helps to motivate yourself if your'e going for a mount or something else (possibly completing the legendary in Firelands or the rogue daggers in Dragon Soul) - again using that opportunity to make some gold while at the same time completing some regular gameplay!

So if you still need the mount from Dragon Soul then try a few runs - see if it's worth your time.  You may find you actually get a lot more gold per hour farming ores though, so it then becomes a toss up between gauging your "fun per hour" as well as your gold per hour (which on occasion the gold can be worth you doing things you hate - sssh that goes against what I said above!)

I keep losing gold since raid started (from 120k to 50k ((and 120k is a lot for me)), and that's solely due to the price of flasks and potions (4k/flask + 1k/potion)... Can't wait for 7.1 and all those "free" plants !!

Yup the cost of regular raiding has been really disproportionate compared to previous expansions!  Really crazy for a lot of players.  Try and off set as much as you can, maybe even seeing if a friend will farm herbs etc for a discount.  Just use whatever you can to get those mats and crafts done as cheaply as possible!

I've gone from about 50k since the expansion started to about 500k(with 500k of auctions currently that sell fairly consistently) skinning initally and now selling obliterum. What markets would be a good idea to check out now that i've got a bit of capital built up?

Seeing as your skinning already then look into leatherworking see what you can push there.  If you have an alt with enchanting as well the potential for gold can be pretty sweet when you combine the skinning , lw then the enchanting as well.  Check out my Obliterum guide for how I use LW and enchanting here

I farm gold only to buy tokens, which is easy as cake and can be done in 2 weeks if you're a really lazy wanker like me. Am I a bad person?

Doesn't make you bad but doesn't help people either :P What do you farm? Mats or just old content?

Honestly one of the easiest ways to make gold right now is just running Cata raids, doing the main four should net you around 3.5-4k~ I usually make that much on each toon and I even skip a few bosses.

I've been a good person the other day, I really wanted to beat a pet battle world quest and bought 2 pets at the ah for 2k each. I felt dead inside dude but managed to beat the battle though.

but to answer your question, I mainly sell yellow inscription stuff and the  very occasional expensive thing I come across when I go here and there.

 

what do you do?

i'll get bloods on the enchanter right? it's also an alchemist so i'll be able to use the bloods for what I currently do to make obliterum, It will save me a few hundred gold per oblit since I don't have to pay off an alchemist haha

I'm pretty sure that the ranks are all just RNG based.  I've known a few players that have got rank 3 on quite a few different herb types while others have none so just keep sticking with it!  Hope you watch something like Netflix with all that herb / mining ;)

Yup! The bloods are a small chance "proc" when you disenchant!  Sounds like a great idea for sure and means your'e using everything at every stage!  Good luck with it!

Push for 800k - yours is a bit higher than a few I've done but take advantage of the prices before they drop! Good luck!

      War of Thorns will be available on live servers starting the week of July 24. The event has two stages and culminates in burning down Teldrassil. Here's our gameplay preview from the Alliance side.
      Check out our War of Thorns preview from the Alliance perspective!
      The following article contains spoilers.
      War of Thorns
      War of Thorns is the pre-expansion event that will be available on live servers the week of July 24, 2018 through BfA launch. The questline consists of two stages: Stage #1 ends with the Horde forces advancing to Darkshore. Completing it unlocks Darkshore World Quests  Stage #2 ends with the Alliance evacuating Darnassus and taking the portal to Stormwind when Teldrassil's burned down. Important cinematics from this stage are still missing! It remains unclear who actually burned down the World Tree. All quests reward reputation with the Alliance. You can earn the following faction mounts by completing the second part of the pre-expansion event: Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph (Alliance) War-Torn Reins of the Undercity Plaguebat (Horde) You can find the War of Thorns preview from the Horde perspective here. Quests
      Part One
      A Short-Lived Peace
      The initial quest's offered by Anduin who tells you how bravely you fought in the name of the Alliance, but more needs to be done given that he received a disturbing message from Alliance operatives in Orgrimmar.
      The Horde Uprising
      Unbeknownst to Anduin (who thinks that Horde forces gather in Silithus to get ahold of Azerite), you're supposed to report to Mathias Shaw for further instruction when all of a sudden he appears and tells you his reports were wrong:
      A Disturbance in Ashenvale
      Tha kaldorei forces already set sail for Silithus, but the Horde's attack on Ashenvale has begun. This piece of information is important, because the Alliance will get wrecked by the Horde big time, as they don't have enough forces to defend themselves. You are told to report to Captain Delaryn Summermoon in Astranaar. Go outside and enter Field Marshal Cogspark's portal to Astranaar.
      The Light of Elune & Knives of the Forsaken
      In Astranaar, you'll find Summermoon and many poisoned civilians.
      Objective of these quests is to honor bodies of the fallen in Astranaar and fight Undead Rogues.
      A Soft Glow
      Go find Malfurion in Ashenvale (at the entrance to Darkshore). He'll be fighting Sylvanas and creates a wisp wall to fend them off and win some time. Horde soldiers will try to pass it, but get killed by the wisps.
      Hidden Amongst the Leaves & Mercy for the Mad
      Captain Summermoon informs Malfurion that Horde forces gather at Zoram'gar Outpost.
      Slay 8 Frenzied Blackwood Furbolgs and send 8 Druids to defend the Grove of the Ancients.
      Garden Grove
      Meanwhile, the sacred grove is already under attack by Goblins and you must go defeat the Monstrous Shredder.
      Enraged Furbolgs & Elves in the Machine
      Something's going on at the Blackwood Den. You are sent to investigate the disturbance. Entering Blackwood Den reveals that it's under attack by the Horde and you must save Elder Brolg, Gren Tornfur and Elder Brownpaw. At the same time, Summermoon will offer a quest where you must sabotage Horde demolishers. Remain in close range of her to gain stealth and Horde forces won't be able to detect you. Saving a furbolg triggers the following broadcast text:
      The Wake of Something New
      Onu's pain grows and you are sent to Nazj'vel to investigate the disturbance.
      Azerite Denial & No Horde Allowed
      You'll find Horde forces collecting Azerite at Nazj'vel and must prevent them from gathering Azerite.
      Malfurion Returns
      Malfurion needs your aid at the Wildbend River.
      "Rock" The World
      Speak to the Tree of Life to start fighting Horde forces. You'll have access to multiple spells including a self heal.
      Long Away
      Regroup with Malfurion and Delaryn at Darnassus. At this stage, we had to talk to Zidormi, because Teldrassil was already burned down and inaccessible.
      A Looming Threat
      Stalemate at the Wildbend River can only be ended when you rally the kaldorei forces in Darnassus. In the meantime, Malfurion awaits the Alliance fleet in Rut'theran Village.
      Talking to Malfurion Stormrage ends the first part of the questline. At this point, players will unlock Darkshore World Quests. The second part probably won't be available immediately.
      Part Two
      A Threat from the North
      The Horde must have scaled the mountains of Felwood in the North. The wisp wall is failing, it is only a matter of time before the Horde breaks through.
      Rescue Effort & Defending Lor'danel & Action This Day
      The suddenness of the Horde's attack gave citizens little time to flee. Many are hiding in Lor'danel waiting for help. Evacuate 8 Lor'danel citizens and slay 15 Horde attackers. In order to complete the third quest, you must slay two Horde warriors that have led a charge to try and capture the Alliance fleet.
      The Guidance of Our Shan'do
      Lor'danel is overrun and the Horde doesn't relent. Seek out Malfurion in Darkshore. You will find him fighting Sylvanas. High Overlord Saurfang joins the fight and delivers a blow to Malfurion that almost kills him. Tyrande appears and tells you that the war is lost. You are ordered to take her hippogryph to Darnassus.
      A Flicker of Hope
      Darnassus must be evacuated before it burns to ash and you must douse (Bucket of Moonwell Water) the flames and rescue trapped civilians. A three-minute timer will start as soon as you accept the quest and it automatically completes when the timer expires.
      When the time expires your body becomes heavy as your lungs fill with smoke...
      From the Ashes...
      Genn Greymane suddenly appears from the Stormwind portal.
      Take the portal to Stormwind and talk to Anduin to receive your Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph mount.
      Environmental Changes
      Darnassus & Darkshore
      Darnassus can no longer be accessed and fatigue will eventually kill you. Players can talk to Zidormi in Darkshore to witness the world before the burning of Teldrassil, allowing them to access Darnassus again.

      Stormwind
      Night Elves have been forced to retreat to Stormwind.

      Full Gameplay Preview

      Gameplay preview of the War of Thorns event, starring the morally gray Horde and their march upon the kaldorei.
      War of Thorns is the Battle for Azeroth pre-expansion event that culminates in the burning of Teldrassil. It should be available on live realms the week of July 24. Here's a gameplay preview of the event from PTR with all important information from the Horde perspective.
      The following article contains spoilers.
      War of Thorns
      Available the week of July 24  through Battle for Azeroth launch. The event had two stages of testing on the PTR and it's possible that they won't be available immediately when Patch 8.0 goes live. Stage #1 ends with the Horde advancing from Ashenvale to Darkshore and unlocking Darkshore World Quests. Stage #2 ends with the burning of the World Tree. Important cinematics are obviously still missing. You can earn the following faction mounts by completing the second part of the pre-expansion event: Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph (Alliance) War-Torn Reins of the Undercity Plaguebat (Horde) Quests
      Part One
      The Warchief Awaits
      The initial quest is offered by Warchief Sylvanas in Undercity. You can ask her why she decided to attack Teldrassil in the first place.
      The Warchief Commands
      Find High Overlord Saurfang in Northern Barrens.
      A Quick Diversion
      Fly to Astranaar in Ashenvale and talk to Lorash.
      Everybody Has a Price
      Your goal is to poison the kaldorei and disarm Astranaar.
      A Timely Arrival
      The Horde forces now advance through Astranaar and Sylvanas praises you for a perfectly executed strike.
      Zoram'gar Outpost
      Now that the Horde controls Astranaar, Sylvanas tells you that she will continue her hunt for the only creature that can stop your march to victory: Malfurion Stormrage. The next step is to establish a foothold at the base of Darkshore in Zoram'gar Outpost.
      Go back to Astranaar and talk to High Overlord Saurfang to proceed with the next quest.
      On The Prowl
      The objective is to meet Sylvanas near the entrance to Darkshore. You will find her fighting Malfurion and he won't let you pass. He creates a wisp wall, Horde soldiers try to cross it, but they get killed in the process.
      Into the Woods
      You will need to defeat 6 Ashenvale Huntresses and Sylvanas tells you that Malfurion will try to hold you back until his fleet returns from Silithus. Until then, his army is too small. You must find a path through the wisp wall.
      Ripe for the Picking
      Go to Zoram'gar Outpost and talk to Saurfang.
      A Quick Flyover
      Talk to Zarvik Blastwix to fly a machine that will help you destroy wisps.
      An Unstoppable Force
      Now's the time to get past the wisp barrier and you will meet Sylvanas at the wall.
      You must now pass through the wall.
      Clearing Them Out & A Glaive Misunderstanding
      It's time to press on. The objective is to defeat Night Elf forces and glaive throwers in The Master's Glaive.

      Aggressive Inspiration & The Blackwood Den & A Change in Leadership
      In the next series of quest, you must attack and capture Blackwood Den by defeating leaders, slaying furbolgs and planting Horde banners.

      Fueling the Horde War Machine & A Very Clear Message
      Collect Azerite from 6 Azerite deposits and slay Night Elves that are trying to snag it.
      A Gift of Azerite
      Deliver the collected Azerite to Zarvik Blastwix in Blackwood Den.
      A Wild Ride
      You'll arrive at the Wildbend River and fight off Awakened Ancients and kaldorei forces. Sylvanas tells you that the stalemate is unwise to pursue and suggests regrouping at the Blackwood Den.
      A Looming Threat
      This is the final quest of the first part of the pre-patch event that unlocks World Quests in Darkshore.
      Part Two
      Saurfang Returns

      There's been some changes to the way Blizzard handle PvP disqualifications, specifically those from end of season rewards. Players that have been disqualified from receiving these rewards will also be unable to queue for rated matches in the same season. More details below:
      Season Disqualification (source)
      As part of our continued efforts to combat cheating and unfair play in World of Warcraft, we’ve recently made a change to our policies regarding PvP disqualifications.

      As of the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, any player who is found to have engaged in unfair practices that result in their disqualification from end-of-season PvP rewards will also have their ability to queue for rated PvP matches immediately revoked. This restriction will continue through the remainder of the season in which they were disqualified, which includes the current “Post-Season” available until Battle for Azeroth launches.

      This change is intended to minimize the impact that disqualified players have on those who are playing legitimately while the PvP season continues, and is just one aspect of our ongoing commitment to upholding the competitive integrity of World of Warcraft PvP.
