Best Classes for Farming WotLK Classic Gold

For players looking to farm as much gold as possible, choosing the best class for the job is the first step in optimizing the process. While every type can be used for grinding, there are specific characters that can farm faster or more efficiently. The best jobs are the ones with significant AoE damage and/or high movement speed or abilities. Here are the best specializations for gamers to choose from:

  • Rogue – The main reason why Rogues are considered okay for farming is because of their escape tool. Most gold-grinding sessions happen in the open world, which makes characters susceptible to PvP situations in certain areas. With this class, they can use their invisibility to hide and escape when in danger.
  • Mage – Mages have some of the strongest AoE-damage abilities and can quickly move from place to place. While they may be extremely powerful, they are very fragile, so it is prudent to have consumables ready to buff you and provide recovery.
  • Druid – This class is arguably one of the best for grinding resources. Their flying form allows them to travel more efficiently than other jobs, which saves a bit of time. In addition, Druids are powerful and balanced fighters with decent AoE attacks, which makes them effective in farming.
  • Paladin – This job is also considered one of the best gold farmers in the game due to their excellent capabilities in combat. They have potent offense and defense abilities while having incredible movement speed. This allows Paladins to quickly finish grind spots and move to other areas.

While not every farming method requires players to kill mobs, several grind spots are infested with dangerous enemies, so being able to eliminate these obstacles can make gathering easier and safer.
