      The guide focuses on battle pets flipping across multiple realms. The main focus is to buy cheap pets on your realm and resell it for profit on a different one. You can either bring the gold back to your source realm or to a third server to build your own infrastructure.
      Requirements
      Time to do the research Initial investment capital Creation of a character on a second server, it costs 1 silver to post a pet in the Auction House,  You can buy a Illustrious Guild Tabard and vendor it to have gold for auctions. Thanks to @Ammako for pointing out. Research
      Conduct a research using the Undermine Journal Pick your main server and the server you decide to sell your pets on The best bet are populated realms Pay close attention to the Median Price Compare battle pet prices of your server and the target realm The goal is to find pets that you can buy cheap on your server and resell at a higher price on the target realm. Example: My source server is Illidan (US) and I want to sell pets on Tichondrius (US), so I'm comparing battle pets prices of Illidan and Tichondrius. 
      The Guide
      After your research's finished, you will have decided, which pet has the highest profit on your target realm and at the same time lowest investment requirements on your source realm Buy pets and learn them Create a new character on the target realm For posting pets in the Auction House, you need 1 Silver per pet auction, so it's a good idea to buy Illustrious Guild Tabard on your main serer and vendor it to have gold for auctions on the target server. Open the Pet Journal, right-click the pet you bought on your source realm and cage it There's an option "Put in Cage" Put the pets in the Auction House After having sold your auctions, you will start making gold on the target realm. This gold should be spent on battle pets, but the other way around Conduct another research based on your target realm This time, your source realm will be your target realm Buy pets on the target realm to resell on either your primary realm or expand to a third realm. You can now start flipping ("ping-ponging") gold between two or more realms. Example: I've bought pets on Illidan (US) and successfully sold them at higher prices on Tichondrius (US). Having aquired enough gold on Tichondrius (US), I can start buying pets, which are sold on Tichondrius cheaper than they are on Illidan and either bring my gold back to Illidan or expand it to multiple other servers.
      Closing Tips
      Conducting the research is of vital importance Make screenshots of pets you buy, it makes caging faster The Undermine Journal battle pets page can be accessed from the menu bar on the right

      A guide that focuses on gold gain "on the go", no tedious tasks required.
      Highlights
      All materials sell fast No need to check out crafting value vs. profit You make gold "on the way" engaging in a wide variety of activities that don't focus on gold making, such as World Quests or Glory of the Legion Hero. Blood of Sargeras
      Get Boon of the Bloodhunter. It gives a lot of extra bloods. You will notice Bloodhunter's Quarry dropping from enemies. It will contain anywhere from 1-5 Bloods of Sargeras. Engage in content that gives you a lot of bloods, the best are Mythic+0 dungeons. After having acquired enough bloods at the end of the day, visit this website (EU) to determine the most recent gold value of Blood of Sargeras. On most servers, you will get the maximum value from Potion of Prolonged Power, but we'll be focusing on raw materials. Find Illnea Bloodthorn in Dalaran. If you found which item has the most value, create a macro depending on the item you'd like to buy: /run BuyMerchantItem(1) - Order Resources Cache /run BuyMerchantItem(2) - Lean Shank /run BuyMerchantItem(3) - Fatty Bearsteak /run BuyMerchantItem(4) - Big Gamy Ribs /run BuyMerchantItem(5) - Leyblood /run BuyMerchantItem(6) - Wildfowl Egg /run BuyMerchantItem(7) - Cursed Queenfish /run BuyMerchantItem(8) - Mossgill Perch /run BuyMerchantItem(9) - Highmountain Salmon /run BuyMerchantItem(10) - Stormray /run BuyMerchantItem(11) - Runescale Koi /run BuyMerchantItem(12) - Black Barracuda /run BuyMerchantItem(13) - Aethril /run BuyMerchantItem(14) - Dreamleaf /run BuyMerchantItem(15) - Foxflower /run BuyMerchantItem(16) - Fjarnskaggl /run BuyMerchantItem(17) - Starlight Rose /run BuyMerchantItem(18) - Leystone Ore /run BuyMerchantItem(19) - Felslate /run BuyMerchantItem(20) - Stonehide Leather /run BuyMerchantItem(21) - Stormscale /run BuyMerchantItem(22) - Unbroken Claw /run BuyMerchantItem(23) - Unbroken Tooth /run BuyMerchantItem(24) - Shal'dorei Silk /run BuyMerchantItem(25) - Arkhana /run BuyMerchantItem(26) - Leylight Shard Example: I found that I will get the most value from Fjarnskaggl, So I create this macro:
      /run BuyMerchantItem(16) You can adjust the amount of stacks you want to buy, but the best is to just spam the macro until you're out of bloods if you want to deplete them all.
      Enchanting
      Greatly synergizes with blood farming. You get a lot of gold by disenchanting everything. Don't disenchant BoE purples! Chaos Crystal is the main source of income and disenchanting epic gear has a chance to yield a Blood of Sargeras. The key is to obtain as much gear as possible from World Quests (look for quests that award purple items when doing your daily cache), Mythic+0 dungeons, LFR  and other sources. If you're doing Heroic dungeons, disenchant every rare item to get Leylight Shard. Disenchant all green gear you come across into Arkhana. Sell all crystals, shards and dust. Order Hall Missions
      To further improve your gold gain, don't forget about missions that award gold! If you're success chance is 200%, you're guaranteed to receive bonus gold. Don't forget to put everything in the Auction House.
      Closing Tips
      Mobile Armory is far more comfortable to use than the in-game Auction House. Legion Companion App can be used for Order Hall Missions. Sell all Defiled Augment Runes you get from LFR, Order Hall Missions.
