Grabbing the Gold in Warlords

Make some of that WoW GoldWarlords of Draenor has all the usual gold making methods, such as gathering and crafting and playing the auction house. The only things new regarding those methods is the actual items found/made. Oh yes, and that crafting is much simpler than before.

The new idea, as you know, is the Garrisons. Among other things, they’re a source of pretty easy gold. If you have several garrisons, all level 3, you could easily be making thousands per week.

I don’t know whether Bliz will run with the garrison idea in the next expansion. Yeah, I know they say they won’t, but they said that about Flying pretty recently and then they said there will be flying. They’ve also changed their minds about a variety of things in the past, where they’ve said “definitely not” and later said, “Yeah, let’s do it.” Both factions on one server comes to mind.

Anyway, the Garrisons are a neat idea and I’m pretty sure that they’re something that Bliz will change someday. Why? You can pull 100-2k gold a day from your garrison and you don’t have to buy or sell anything. No gathering or skinning, no haunting the auction house, no endless crafting. Just check your mission table and hit the treasure missions. Gathering some ores and/or herbs and sell them off. Open up all your salvage and vendor or auction it.

Obviously for optimal results you will want to be level 100 and have a level 3 Garrison.

Gold Tips: What’s in Demand?

Obviously there are about a bazillion things to sell on the Auction House, but how do you tell what people actually want to buy?

Whaddaya want?!?Certain things are easy. For example, there’s always a demand for cloth due to First Aid and Tailoring and a few other uses. Most all of the ores and herbs and skins you gather will have a pretty fair demand. Basically, anything that another player can use will have someone willing to buy it, but it may be hard to find that someone.

We want items that have a lot of someones wanting to buy them, preferably across several classes. An Int gem, for example, is usable by any caster. A Glyph of Renewing Mists is only of interest to Mistweaver Monks.

Server population is a factor here. If your server is a ghostland (eg: Detheroc) then there just won’t be much demand since there is no one to buy anything. Illidan, on the other hand, has a far larger population and almost everything is in some demand. Still, you have to make due with where you are and the same rules still apply. Cloth will be in much higher demand than, say, two handed Agility Swords (fDecimation.)
