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 TabardIllustrious 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 TabardIllustrious 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

You can skip doing quests by buying a guild rep tabard from guild vendor (125g blue one does the job) and mailing it to that new characters, it'll vendor for more gold than you'll ever need for posting auctions. The 125g is worth the time saved not having to bother doing those quests imo.

There might be other, cheaper BoA items you can mail vendor but that's the one I usually use when I have nothing on a new realm and I want bags or something. Timeless armor tokens might work, depending on how quickly you can obtain them.

Also if you're already Exalted with Sons of Hodir on one of your characters, the heirloom enchants you can buy from their quartermaster offer an arguably cheaper gold cost (80g at exalted, vendors for 25g.)

Of course, if you don't already have that rep, it really wouldn't be worth it to grind exalted with them just for that, but for those who have it it's a nice bonus.

      Our Battle for Azeroth content hub is filled to brim with useful information to get you started with WoW's latest expansion!
      Your source of the latest Battle for Azeroth news!
      Release Date
      World of Warcraft's latest expansion will be released on August 14, 2018. You can find out more information in this post.
      Pre-Purchase Battle for Azeroth
      If you pre-purchase the expansion, you'll get a level 110 boost and gain early access to four Allied Races. The Digital Deluxe Edition comes with various goodies in all Blizzard games except Diablo. Collector's Edition from local retailers also comes with two novellas and you can read excerpts here.
      Game Version Pricing Buy Link Standard Edition $49.99 // 44.99 EUR EU / US Digital Deluxe Edition $69.99 // 59.99 EUR EU / US Pre-Purchase Deal [More Details]
      New players that pre-order Battle for Azeroth will get Legion bundled with it for 49.99 USD // 44.99 EUR.
      Allied Races
      Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei, Nightborne and Void Elves are four Allied Races that can be unlocked before Battle for Azeroth goes live. Pre-purchasing the expansion won't unlock them though. They're gated behind Exalted reputation standing with Legion factions and achievements.
      If you boost an Allied Race character to level 110, you won't be able to receive Heritage Armor.
      It's very likely that Blizzard removes the gating at some point before Battle for Azeroth launch. It would not make much sense having them gated behind old content.
      Allied Races Unlock Requirements
      Allied Race Requirements Highmountain Tauren Ain't No Mountain High Enough + Exalted with Highmountain Tribe  Lightforged Draenei You Are Now Prepared! + Exalted with Army of the Light Nightborne Insurrection + Exalted with the Nightfallen Void Elf You Are Now Prepared! + Exalted with Argussian Reach Allied Races in Battle for Azeroth
      Four Allied Races have been confirmed in Battle for Azeroth so far. The Alliance will be able to unlock Dark Iron Dwarves and Kul Tirans, whereas the Horde can convince Mag'har Orcs and Zandalari Trolls to join the faction. The aforementioned Allied Races will be gated behind Battle for Azeroth content and can't be unlocked before launch. We learned that Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag'har Orcs will be available first and both Allied Races are now available for playtesting on Alpha.

      We found mounts that will be dropping in Mythic dungeons in Battle for Azeroth.
      Blizzard has recently updated the source of multiple mounts and it seems that we're going to see some drop from final bosses inside specific Mythic dungeons or Challenger's Caches found in these dungeons at the end of Mythic+ runs.
      We also found various recolors of the mounts listed below and you can find them in our Battle for Azeroth content hub.
      King's Rest
      Mummified Raptor Skull drops from King Dazar in King's Rest. Alternatively, the mount can be found in the Challenger's Cache in King's Rest.

      Freehold
      Sharkbait's Favorite Crackers drops from Harlan Sweete on Freehold Mythic or the Challenger's Cache found in Freehold.

      The MOTHERLODE!!
      The final boss of the dungeon drops an Engineering recipe instead of a mount: Schematic: Mecha-Mogul Mk2. The mount (Mecha-Mogul Mk2) is listed as BoP right now.

      The Underrot [Dungeon Preview]
      Underrot Crawg Harness drops from the Unbound Abomination (Mythic) or you can get it from the Challenger's Cache found within the dungeon.

      Other Mounts
      Reins of the Obsidian Krolusk could potentially drop from the final boss of Tol Dagor, but the drop is still listed as a placeholder.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a mythic raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of three within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.
      We are always looking to add players with a friendly personality and lots of passion for the game. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 6/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid. We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders. You must be able to take constructive criticism and have ownership over your level of play, and be willing to put in the effort to be a contribution to the team.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for farming the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      Healer: We need to add a healer to our core. Holy Paladin preferred, will consider any.
      DPS: We are looking for DPS with the gear/experience to contribute immediately. Will consider all specs. Bonus points for good healing offspec. 

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you a deeper dive into the raid team:

      Just how locked in are the classes in the beta, which specs need more work and more.
      The biggest and most long-term relevant changes in any new expansion are class modifications and Blizzard have been a little more forthcoming with their design goals and principles during the Alpha, from the dev watercooler back at the start covering the design overview to come, to pretty regular updates on specific topics like changing how blocking works and the ever unpopular global cooldown changes. 
      Today we have another explanation on class design, related to the Beta that's just launched and going into just how "finished" the current class design is, as Kaiwax responds to a forum post. The TLDR on it is that nothing is set in stone yet, but most specs have their rotations and look and feel in place, with Unholy and Frost DKs and Prot Warriors set to receive some changes in those areas. The Azerite system will impact class changes during the beta the most, as it still hasn't been fully tested and implemented.
      For more specific info on class changes you can always check out our BfA hub for all the updates, or just head to the latest talent changes or Azerite traits directly.
      Kaiwax (source)
      Hello!
      I wouldn't call anything "locked" during testing and active development. Our development processes are as iterative as they've ever been, and we're always looking for places where we need to make further changes to meet design goals.
      Having said that, we're close to finished with the changes to the rotations and the look and feel for most specs. We’ve still got a few changes coming soon in the Beta to Unholy Death Knights, Frost Death Knights, and Protection Warriors.
      We used the Alpha timeframe to make some surgical changes to several other specs, and we're somewhat finished with that stage of development for this expansion.
      In the days and weeks to come in the Beta, we're going to keep a focus on how every spec plays with regard to the new itemization systems in Battle for Azeroth. While it's certainly possible that feedback on how Azerite affects a certain spec could lead us to do further development on that spec's rotation, we don't expect to need any big changes to talents that would justify the words "severe" or "overhaul".
      Beyond itemization concerns, there may be spots where we’ll do focused problem-solving around rotational issues (examples: “it turns out that simulations say never to use X, but X seems like it should be part of my core rotation” or “my spec is too feast-or-famine, and if I have bad luck with Y procs, I feel useless.”).
      As always, thank you very much for testing the Beta and making your experiences testing inform your feedback. Focused feedback is super-helpful.
