How to Farm and Sell WoW WotLK Classic Gold
Players need gold in WoW Wrath of the Lich King Classic, whether they buy new equipment or weapons. In order to progress raid tiers or get ready with preraid BiS BoEs, there will always be a demand for gold; given the amount of goldsinks in WotLK, from Dual Talents to Northrend Flying, the demand has never been higher. Fortunately for WoW WotLK Classic Gold sellers, there are several ways to earn gold in the latest expansion for World of Warcraft Classic.
Choosing the Right Profession
Sellers must choose their character’s profession wisely if they want to focus solely on farming gold. Professions with steady income such as Cooking, Alchemy, Jewel Crafting, and Enchanting are great options. Jewel Crafting and Enchanting—in particular—are among the best professions sellers can use to their advantage for Wrath of the Lich King Classic. That’s because, throughout the expansion, players will always need to upgrade their gear with the best jewels and enchants that money can buy.
Meanwhile, Alchemy and Cooking fall under the consumable category—from foods to potions and elixirs, the two professions will never run out of things to craft and, in turn, will never run out of money to make. Alchemy also can transmute items, and this feature will become especially important down the line when they can turn rare games into epic gems. As players may know, Epic gems are useful to Jewel Crafting players.
When it comes to professions that can cyclically yield income, Leatherworking, Tailoring, and Blacksmithing come to mind. These professions are vital to the game whenever a new raid drops. Since these raids introduce new patterns with recipes for binder-equipped items (ex. Belt of Arctic Life Pattern), players who excel in one of the three professions mentioned above can earn a lot of gold with them. There’s one caveat: the value and potential diminish over time when players get ahold of those raid items. At the very least, sellers specializing in the Tailoring profession can still make and sell bags to other players, while Blacksmiths can provide services to players looking to add gem sockets to their bracers and belts.
Doing GDPK Runs
When Wrath of the Lich King was first released, a fad called GDPK swept over the community. For those unfamiliar with this concept, it’s an auction-style raid where players bid on items dropped during raid runs. The person with the highest bid gets the items, and the gold from the bids will accumulate in a pot. This pot’s value will then increase until the bidding showdown is over, and the gold inside will be distributed equally among all the members present in the raid.
One of the main benefits of doing GDPK runs is that many sellers want the items listed for sale on the Auction House, but the problem is that they’re generally overpriced. By participating in these runs, sellers can potentially get several items for a lower price and sell them later for less than what it’s going for in the Auction House.
