For level 80s maybe, but it is still a great way for lower levels to make gold for the amount of time invested. I picked up 15 shards in less than an hour of killing the bosses. Sold the shards for 15-25g (bought two that were in the AH for 10g...fools bwahaha) by cornering the market. It took less than 24 hours to sell all 17 (15 plus the 2 I picked up from the auction). While I was questing the messages kept popping up, "A buyer has been found for . . . " The next time I just priced them all at 20-25g and the money kept coming in. I've only used this 3 times since I'm in the mad rush to level 80, but don't discount this gem of a guide.

Thankful DK from Greymane Smiling

PS- I don't drop all the shards into the market at once. I release them in phases like the builders used to do with the subdivisions lol.

Thanks for the summary!

This section has been in need of a serious revamp for quite some time. It's on my to-do list, I'll look at it in a bit. Thanks again!

Clean Up

I wonder if there should be a clean up in these guides. Many of them are not that good anymore now that WotLK is out.

Gold guides can be extremely helpful for especially newcomers, and newcomers might not be aware that some of these guides isn't that useful anymore.

I definitely agree with that. If anyone has the time and will to go through them and sort out which are good and which are obsolete, I highly encourage them to do so.

To me, that sounds like an excellent idea! Though it would be nice to give a little note crediting the original guide's author, if you take a lot from that guide.

AH Gold Making

I will work on a great guide for making gold on the AH, including using Auctioneer and its features. As a Jewelcrafter, I have made a lot of money on the AH. A family member who also plays makes even more with jewelcrafting since the expansion. I am switching to BS to try that out on the AH. I will try to help.
