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.

      With 7.3 on the horizon, Blizzard did an official preview of new caster animations with videos and developer comments.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With patch 7.3 on the horizon, we thought it was time to share some updates to combat animations for several casting classes. Similar to what we did with the melee classes at the launch of Legion, these updates are all about priests, mages, Restoration and Elemental shaman, and some additional refinements to Restoration druid casting animations! We’re also continuing to work on even more enhancements for additional classes at a later point in development.
      A little over two years ago, we set our sights on revamping combat animations. The team has wanted to renovate it somehow, but what exactly does that mean? To determine the answer, our development leadership put together a small group of people to come up with a prototype of what we thought could use some cleaning up. You are currently experiencing the fruits of this work with the new melee animations. Our final goal was to create new melee moves that would make the game feel better, but not change how the game was played. During this prototype phase, we also came up with a plan for casters, but didn’t have time to put it into production until now. Let’s dig into some of the things we did.
      We hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the new caster visual updates. We had lots of fun creating all these animations and effects and look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

      In Patch 7.3, Blizzard will be increasing the difficulty and rewards from dungeons across the board. The changes help keep dungeons relevant even at the end of the expansion.
      The following changes will be effective when Patch 7.3 goes live:
      Normal Difficulty
      Item level 845 (up from 825). Heroic Difficulty
      Item level 865 (up from 845). Mythic Difficulty
      Item level 885 (up from 865). Mythic Keystone
      Loot item level will be increased only after Antorus the Burning Throne raid opens. World Bosses
      Loot from old world bosses remains at 860. Loot from Broken Shore world bosses remains at 900. Loot from Argus world bosses in Greater Invasion Points is at 930.

      Our returing player guide is stuffed with relevant information for players that haven't played WoW for a  while and they'd like to give it a go in 7.3.
      If you haven't played WoW for a while, we have a guide for you with all relevant information.
      The main goal of the guide is to keep it short and simple.
      General Tips
      In Patch 7.3, the 3rd relic slot will be unlocked immediately once you reach 110 and there's no need to complete individual campaigns all over again. (Source) You can forget about the Broken Shore content. Artifact Knowledge is now shared. All player start at AK Level 41 and will automatically gain 1 AK Level per week. Only one new Legendary item is added in 7.3. Any player that defeats Argus the Unmaker can get Insignia of the Grand Army. It's rewarded from the quest called The Death of a Titan. More details about the Netherlight Crucible can be found here. Two new factions are added in Patch 7.3: Argussian Reach & Army of the Light, both having new emissary quests. A new Heirloom with an interesting affix was added to the game.  Man'ari Training Amulet. Sacrifice 10% HP to gain 40% increased movement speed for 10 seconds. There are no plans to enable Draenor flying for those that haven't unlocked Draenor Pathfinder. Patch 7.3 Content Rollout
      Not all 7.3 content will be available on day 1.From the latest developer Q/A, the content rollout should look like this:
      Week 1
      Krokuun and the first two chapters of the Argus story will unlock.   Players will be able to unlock Krokuun World Quests. Week 2
      The second Argus zone Mac'Aree will become available and with it the third and fourth chapter of the Argus story. Once you progress through those chapters, you will gain access to Mac'aree World Quests, Kil'jaeden's Terrace World Quests and Western Mac'Aree World Quests. Invasion Points will also open. Week 3
      The last week marks the opening of Argus's last zone, Antoran Wastes. Players will gain access to Antoran Wastes World Quests, the Netherlight Crucible and the new dungeon - Seat of the Triumvirate. All you need to know at this point is that Argus has three zones and once you finish the story in each zone, you will gain access to world quests.
      Reputation Catch-up
      We datamined two Bind-to-Account items related to reputation catch-up with Broken Isles & Argus factions. Sources remain unknown for now. Nathrezim Tome of Manipulation increases rep gains with Broken Isles factions by 200% for 2 hours. The item's intended for alts and doesn't work past level 109. Demon's Soulstone can only be used on Argus and the item increases your reputation standing by 1,000 with all factions. It's good for catching up reputation with the Nightfallen. Gear Catch-up
      New Relinquished items are being added in 7.3 with a base item level of 910. (Source) All items can be purchased for 650 Veiled Argunite (a new currency from Argus World Quests). Crafted gear is now ilvl 885 and can be upgraded with Primal Sargerite via Primal Obliterum up to item level 935. Old crafted gear can't be upgraded.You can disenchant it into Chaos Crystal. There's a new shoulder enchant on Argus that will help you farm Primal Sargerite. More information can be found here. Dungeons have had their ilvl increased by 20 item levels on every difficulty. Normal: ilvl 845 (was 825) Heroic: ilvl 865 (was 845) Mythic: ilvl 885 (was 865) World Quest rewards scale up to item level 895. (Source) With the introduction of the Netherlight Crucible, you can now target specific relic types. Antorus the Burning Throne
      The raid won't open immediately with 7.3, but at a later point (probably in Patch 7.3.5). Once Antorus opens, Legendary items will have a base item level of 1,000. (Source) For more information about Patch 7.3, check out our Argus hub.

      We're going back to Antorus to test some more bosses starting Thursday, and it's all Mythic all the time this week! We also get the first wing of LFR starting Friday.

      On Thursday, August 17th and Friday, August 18th we will be conducting raid tests of Antorus, the Burning Throne. Once testing has concluded on Friday we will be testing the first wing of Raid Finder difficulty over the weekend.

      Light's Breach - Raid Finder
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
