Phants' guide to making money.
  • Use the auction house. Unless it's crap (white / grey items), chances are it will earn you a lot more money at the AH than it will at a vendor. I typically quest until I am full up and then boogey to the AH to sell my stacks of leather / ore / bars / green & blue items. It's a rare day that I don't log in to a mailbox full of gold, let me tell you.
  • Recipes are worth big bucks - take them to the AH. If it's high enough (150+ of one skill or another) you'll likely earn a handful of gold for it.
  • Whoring skinnable creeps a level or two below you (no more than say 5 or 6, depending on your own level) nets you XP and you (if you are a skinner, 'natch) get double the effective drop thanks to your ability to skin. Stacks of leather go for decent silver and you get a good whack out of soft patches of fur etc.
  • Stay way the hell away from enchanting. This is a very expensive habit

There's more but wifey is calling.

When you want to sell stacks of stuff at the AH.. break it up.

Sell smaller stacks at higher prices. People who need small amounts are willing to pay a bit more.

eg. going rate for 20 silk is about 40s. With that same price, 5 pieces should be worth 10s.

You can usually get away with charging 120-150% of the standard price for a reduced stack. In this case, you should be going for 12-15s per 10.

As long as they're all bought out, you will 60s per 20 silk as opposed to 40s.

Nice aye?

Create a level 1 alt and run to wherever your auction house is located (I had no trouble running a lvl 1 troll to Oggrimmar).

When you find a green item or have a stack of whatever you want to sell, mail it to your alt. It only costs 30c and you don't have to make the trek (and back) from wherever you are currently adventuring. It also means you dont have to worry so much about bag space

avoid playing at 2 in the morning - servers link with DB seems to fuck out every night like clockwork

enchanting is the most money sucking pointless profession - you will never sell anything because you'd be too tempted to disenchant it, and you'll never make any money because you'd be too busy questing to actually go to IF or SW to spam your services on /2. Good to service the guildies though if you're feeling altruistic.

tailoring is the most contested profession - first aiders need cloth, enchanters need pearls, leatherworkers need leather, you'll be hard pressed to get any ingridients for tailoring. Can make some blue items to disenchant though if you're into that crack habit :P

try to fill in the map and find the gryphon master before you start doing quests in the area - makes getaways so much easier, and you get about 1k exp just exploring.

teamspeak saves fingers and makes the game more social.
wowreader saves character screenshots.

if you are a miner and someone has set sights on the mine you're working on, wait for it to come up with the loot window, but don't pick up the item until the other person leaves - they can't mine it till you've looted.

If you are a priest and fighting monsters or players alone power word: shield is very useful. Also when priest do not pull with shadow word: pain. Get in max range of a monster and you can cast 2 smites on them before they get to you then use shadow word: pain.

Lol, 20% is a lot unless you're playing on a lame ass non-pvp server.

no you can't summon a mount in combat, but 20% run speed increase (even though it's more as far as I remember) is well worth the 90g due to the reduction in travel time causing you to reach 60 faster, I think by 50 Torka will have a mount if he doesn't already

I got this object for completing The Star, the Hand and the Heart quest (from IF) the otherday that I can use in combat and gives me temporary 60% faster run speed (same as a horse). Worth looking at? It's a good wee quest, if a bit of a run about. 8000 or so xp as well.

Reward is Skull of Impending Doom.

Tried the quest and gave up, effort for reward wasn't quite worth it imo.

The negatives to the run speed made me decide it was better to die than run for it. By the time you decide to run, your health and or mana is already low / gone.

Get a loan from higher lvl guild mates. I was loaned 15g and got my mount as soon as I hit 40 and paid back the 15g back before I hit 41.

Oh and ignore Torka It's not just about the speed.. It's avoiding most things as you go riding through them, rather than zig-zagging through everything on foot! Bloody handy.

ZoSo, yeah that is probably the best way - I've been in a few guilds but they were all full of immature wankers* - Pirates of Booty Bay anyone?

*no offense to those of you who are in it and aren't wankers :P

I'm level 42 and I made my flatmate give me money :P

But seriously .. go to the Badlands and kill shit there .. I wasn't having much trouble coming out with 5 gold worth of crap I could vendor after running around stabbing things for an hour or two.

Mmm .. crisp basalisk urethras.

Anyway.. I was over at gadgetzen, the scorpids over there give me scorpid scale - but I've never been to the badlands before so I'll give that a go.

At 40 I had enough for a mount and almost all of my spells (someone loaned me a few gold that I paid back very quickly).

It's not like I scrimped either, kept all my gear up to date and tradeskills as well (mostly).

re

Best trick i can offer, is dont level to 60 too fast. Enjoy the trip from 1-60 its great and alot of fun. At 60 you'll just get bored after doing the same 3 instances till your eyes bleed and getting locked out of a MC/Onyxia raid for the 5th time. WoW the game that easy to level in but has no end game brilliant design sometime in the 3rd 1/4 of 2010 blizzard should be ready to release a content patch !

Well, you would have reached max lvl ( duh ), got ALL the best equipment available.
Have completed all instances and related quests.
Have killed off ALL the top lvl raid/dungeon mobs.
Also maxed out your relavent professions that you have taken up.

IF you want _complete_ and total MMORPG endgame then you will do all the above with each and every charater and class
And master all professions availalbe.

Now that is what I would define as complete MMO endgame.

Of course that would only be endgame untill the new content is added then you have to add that to the list and since new content is always going to be added ( usually ) then there is never a endgame

Question: What is a good price to sell herbs and leather for at the AH ? I have been getting stacks of earthroot and other such low level herbs around IF, and will start getting skins also.

I've been told stacks of earthroot are required for a certain quest ? stacks of 5 earthroot at a time?
How much Silver would that sell at AH ?

I'm also collecting some cloth to give to the people at IF (not sure what that gets me other than increased reputation?), and will get leather from skinning once I remember to buy a skinning knife

Help to make money much needed. Training Priest spells ramps up quite quickly in Silver coins!

Hehe I think that's in the updated IX UI mod I installed. Will have to test it out in IF and see how I get on

Would be nice to see some screenshots of people's in-game UIs, just for ideas on how to configure mine.

Also, is the issue with the AA-graphics fixed in 1.6 ? Do we still need to disable 'screen bloom' and set AA via the nvidia driver control panel ? Does the graphics option of multisampling in WoW actually do much ?

Cloth = bandages = silly to not level first aid!

And auctioneer rocks. /auctioneer broker and /auctioneer bidbroker: easy means to make money while idling at the AH.

Most people go for reputation with another faction so that they can buy that faction's mount. Not something you really need to worry about just yet.
