How to make WoW gold is a spiky problem for many World of Warcraft players. For some, even gathering the 5000 gold they need for the artisan flying skill wasn’t exactly easy. I once wandered around with butterflies in my pockets as well, but eventually, I managed to solve this problem.
Now, there are three types of players. The ones new to the game, the casuals, with quite some gaming skills but little time to play, and of course, the pros that know everything about everything when it comes to World of Warcraft. So, since I’ve been into this fantasy universe for a while, I know a few ways to make a decent buck. Therefore, I’m going to give a few ideas on how to make WoW gold, for each type of player.
If you’re new to World of Warcraft, it’s best to earn your money by the classic farming and gathering methods. This way everything you get will be 100% profit, you don’t need to invest your gold, you don’t need extraordinary gear or super fighting skills. Plus, this way you get to learn to play your character better. So, get two professions and use them at maximum to make money with them.
Solutions for Casual Players
Casual players (like me) always ask themselves “How to make WoW gold with the little time I have?”. Well, there’s a simple solution for this group of players. The Auction House. However, to get the best profits without leaving the Auction House, you must have a little knowledge about the prices on your server, otherwise you might lose your investments. To solve this problem, just get the Auctioneer addon.
Solutions for Pros

Since pro WoW players are, well… pros, they should know everything about making gold in this game. Where to gather minerals or herbs, what to buy and sell to the Auction house etc. But, there’s a way to make fast and big money, using your years of expertise in this game that might not have occurred to you. So, how to make WoW gold if you’re a pro? Well, assemble a raid and reserve for yourself the BoE items or materials for crafting end game items, like Primordial Saronite for example. These sell for a lot of gold and there’s also a challenge for you, leading a PUG in a difficult raid.
Now, these are just a few general ideas on how to make WoW gold, depending on what type of player you are. If you really want to get the most expensive items in the game, level up expensive professions like engineering or enchanting, or even to collect vanity pets, I strongly suggest a gold guide. This way you will learn every single method of making gold in World of Warcraft.
