So, you are interested in making gold on World Of Warcraft. In this short series of blog posts, I will share with you some of my most tried and tested tips of things that have worked for me. Most of these are common sense tips and probably ones you already use, but some may be less well known.

Never vend Greens.

 If you don't have access to an enchanter - either one of your own characters or a good trusted friend, then vend the hideously ugly greens, and post the nicer looking and rarer hard to find ones on the AH. Some of the most sought after greens are the Aurora, Silver Thread and Blood Knight sets. If you aren't sure which ones to safely vend or disenchant, some of the more popular Transmogrification sites can give you an idea.

Never vend cloth.

Again, as above, never vend your cloth. Most cloth can sell on your local Auction House for a pretty penny. I personally have seen Wool Cloth being bought on one of my realms for around 80g a stack. While I wouldnt pay this high a premium for the convenience of not having to farm myself, many affluent level 90's who have re-rolled will. 

Netherweave, Frostweave, Embersilk and Windwool cloth can either be mailed to an alt with Tailoring to be crafted into bags (in the case of Netherweave, Frostweave and Embersilk) or turned into the current expansion armor sets, disenchanting the greens and auctioning off the Blue quality procs.

Check your local AH regularly for cheap cloth deals. If you can find a stack of 20 Netherweave cloth for less than 10g per stack, snatch it up. Craft it into bags - One stack of Netherweave cloth will make one bag. The bags can sell for anywhere between 15g to 50g depending on realm. This week I've been selling bags for 37g each. If lower level cloths are selling for mere silver pieces, then consider also buying that out and reposting it higher later.


When you are questing, always pick the most expensive item from the rewards unless there is a needed upgrade. If you are questing on an Enchanter, then unless the reward is needed, you can disenchant the quest reward and auction the materials it gives.

Grey and White Items.

When out and about, be it killing mobs for daily quests, or running through that old instance for the much elusive mount you so desire, never leave your mobs unlooted. Those grey and white items can often vend for a few gold each and this all adds up. Some white items can be placed on the AH for a pretty penny, although this is usually cloth and meat, which can be used to make buff foods or level cooking.

Battle Pets.

With the introduction of Pet Battles in Mists Of Pandaria, some old raid instances now reward battle pets as a loot chance from certain bosses. A lot of people may run these raids or instances for the chance to add to their collection, however a lot of people want the acheivements from these pets without doing the leg work. This is where you, the budding goblin comes in. Once you have your own pets and achievements, keep running the instances each week. Not only will the instances reward you with some lovely coins and items to sell on the AH, but you can also get duplicates of the pets. If you learn these, then cage them up on your Auction or bank character, you can post them up on the AH for anywhere between 2000g for the more rare ones, and around 500g or so for the less rare ones. If you can level them up via pet battles etc, they will probably sell for more.

BOE Vendor Recipes.

When you are out and about on your travels, you might come across a vendor with a recipe or formula for one of the many crafting professions. It is often worthwhile to purchase these recipes for the minimal fee you are asked, and then sell them on via the AH for a higher amount of coin in return. The limited supply recipes are often the best resellers. I personally buy the recipes then, using TSM, auction them off for 25g each, which sees a good return on the initial investment. I wont claim that they sell instantly the minute you list them, but they do sell. Some players wont know the vendors exist, or some may just be too lazy to run to Outland for that cooking recipe that they want.
