You think the best way to make money is to farm instances, mine nodes for 6 hours a day or herbing the same plants over and over again? Guess what, it's not.
One big recommendation before even reading this is the add-on Auctioneer. Don't know how to use it? Don't worry, I am writing a guide on it as of now, and this is my top priority (also writing a guide on Cooking, Fishing and the Guardian of Cenarius Achievement)
If you are seriously going to read this post every week, I ask of you this:
- Common Sense
- If you are going to post a comment, only use serious theory crafting.
- Mathematics will be included! If this makes your head hurt, don't bother reading.
- Prices can and will vary for each server.
I am willing to make this a weekly post if the audience reading it is big enough, so that I can keep you posted with what I do every week, how I do it and what you can do.
And of course, I would love to read your experiences through comments below. I hope this will open the eyes of certain people.
The Auction House IS Your Friend
This is something that can't be ignored. The Auction House is the place where you can make bulks of gold, if you know what you are doing.
You think you can make more money farming? Dream on and get real, I'd even take a bet on that (and I don't take bets easily). With Auctioneer, you will be scanning the AH two/three times a day.
Do this for 3-4 weeks and you'll have a pretty accurate spreadsheet of how you server's economy is set up.
Patch Notes: D'oh!
People like me are always, always happy when new (PTR) patch notes are released. Don't know what I'm talking about? Shame on you! You have no idea what you are missing, or already have missed. These are the current PTR patch notes, they are updated frequently as Patch 3.2 is on it's way.
You should always read them and keep track of any changes that occur. For those who didn't know: Patch Notes are a gold mine.
For this week's post I'll be lighting out the 3.2 patch notes.
As some of you may already know, Jewelcrafting and Alchemy changes are going to take place. In 3.2 epic gems can be prospected, transmuted, purchased with honor and purchased with emblems.
