Professions Gold Making Tier List for Dragonflight

All professions can make gold in Dragonflight, but some are stronger for it than others, as displayed in the Tier list below:


S-Tier Professions

  1. Herbalism;
  2. Mining;
  3. Skinning;
  4. Enchanting;
  5. Alchemy;
  6. Cooking.

With Season 2 comes a new rush for materials, including the new Zaralek Glowspores Icon Zaralek Glowspores (Herbalism and Mining) and Obsidian Cobraskin Icon Obsidian Cobraskin (Skinning) from the new zone, Zaralek Caverns. This, combined with old-world materials becoming more expensive as they become more in demand for new gear crafts, but are also less farmed due to the focus being on the new materials, creates great opportunities for gatherers!

Beyond gathering, a new Season brings a renewed need for enchants and consumables, and there is plenty of demand for the new Alchemy transmute Dracothyst Icon Dracothyst and the new Enchanter crafting gear upgrade crests, such as Enchanted Aspect's Shadowflame Crest Icon Enchanted Aspect's Shadowflame Crest.


A-Tier Professions

  1. Blacksmithing;
  2. Inscription;
  3. Leatherworking;
  4. Jewelcrafting;
  5. Tailoring;
  6. Engineering;
  7. Fishing.

Besides creating all of the profession gear, these professions are the backbone of combat gear for other players, which is of great value with Crafting Orders allowing for 447 item level Mythic-raid level gear to be produced! Many of these professions can also create a number of commodity or cooldown-bound items, which can serve as a backup plan for players who are not into the crafting order markets.


B-Tier Professions

  1. None!

With the patch currently going strong, there is high demand for all kinds of crafts and materials, making it so that there is no real bad profession to have for gold making!


Making Gold with Professions in Dragonflight

Making gold with Crafting Orders is very dependent on your server, how many (and how generous) clients you can get for your wares, and on timing the public Crafting Order market. Theoretically, the best gold from orders should be found in the middle-to-late part of the week as many crafters will have exhausted their weekly public crafting order quota already, but the panic to use what is left of the quota before the weekly reset has not set in yet, either.

Doing orders just before popular raid hours could also be a great goldmaking opportunity, as slackers will want to get their shiny new gear crafted quickly at any cost and thus increase their commission to ensure speed in completion.

When mass-producing and selling commodities, most of your profits will come from timing the market in two steps:

  1. Figure out your server's raid days. Wednesday, Sunday, and Tuesday are the typical candidates. On these days, it will be easier to sell consumables for higher prices. To make sure, track the worth of your crafts over time in your server with The Undermine Exchange website, and sell during high price periods.
  2. Before leaving the website, search for the materials used in the crafts. Take note of when they are cheapest and aim to buy during these periods.

Although it sounds simple, most players do not have the patience or knowledge to take advantage of timing the market, and doing so correctly is where your profit will come from in the long term. Buying materials to craft and selling the crafts randomly could actually lead to losing money if you buy high and sell low, so take a little bit of time to understand the market before you dive in!


Dragonflight Goldmaking Addons

While the default Auction House is much easier to use nowadays and benefits from not having the throttling imposed upon addons, these can still be essential tools to automate crafting operations, understand price trends, and just know what something is worth with just a glance at its tooltip.



Our recommended addon for people looking for hardcore goldmaking is TradeSkillMaster, which allows you to fine-customize every single aspect of your professions, crafting and selling in the Auction House, but has the downside of requiring extensive configuration and customization by the user before its power is truly unlocked.



If you want to take a more relaxed approach and mostly want simple automated posting, buying, and goldmaking tooltips on your items, Auctionator is a great lightweight solution!



If you are a crafter, an important addon to install is CraftSim, which provides profit calculations for all auctionable items based on material price info from one of the previous add-ons. It can also simulate the effect of having more or different crafting stats, additional professional knowledge points, simulating your top profession gear for a given craft, and many more useful functionalities!


No Mats; No Make

We would also like to recommend the No Mats; No Make addon for easy filtering of work orders that might be worth filling, in order to avoid the constant spam of gold loss orders with minimal or no materials for a small gold commission.
