Making Gold in the World of Warcraft
July 15, 2009
Gold is the primary form of currency in World of Warcraft (WoW). You need gold to survive and to progress your character’s experience level from 1 through level 80. WoW Gold is used to gain abilities, spells, new crafting professions, epic mounts and some of the best weapons and armor in-game. Gold can literally make your toon’s life in Azeroth easier. So how do the expert gamers gain large amounts of gold?
Online game publishers maximize their revenues and profits by encouraging players to spend significant amounts of time playing. They do this primarily through the game design itself, incorporating a variety of well known “time sinks” such as character leveling (a process that requires the player to complete an endless number of in-game accomplishments in order to advance), special tasks called “quests” which offer attractive rewards upon completion, the opportunity to learn in-game professions such as crafting (requiring training and consuming yet even more play time), endless adventuring, as well as tantalizing virtual items (such as legendary fighting equipment) that can only be purchased with large quantities of gaming currency (in World of Warcraft it’s referred to as Wow gold) – all creating an infinite loop in which some players seem to get stuck.
By leveling up your gathering and crafting professions, you can make a decent amount of gold. Some take up both Mining and Skinning to gather ore and leather, and then sell it at the Auction House for other crafters. Jewelcrafting, Inscription and Enchanting are also profitable professions because of their inherent benefits to high level raiders.
Completing Daily Quests
Daily quests or dailies were first introduced in WoW patch 2.1. These are repeatable quests that players can do in order to earn better rewards and gold. A player is allowed 25 daily quests everyday, some of which involve defeating a number of monsters, capturing objectives and other tasks. These dailies give a good amount of gold and can be done for as long as you like. Some of the best dailies are “Aces High!” in Coldarra, “That’s Abominable!” and “Shoot ‘Em Up” in Icecrown.
Playing the Auction House
To the uninitiated, the Auction House (AH) is just a place where you buy what you need and sell what you don’t. What most don’t realize is that there’s a huge potential to earn WoW Gold using the AH. If you already have a sizable amount of gold, you can search the AH for underpriced goods, buy them and re-sell them for a profit. This takes a bit of time but with specialized WoW add-ons like Auctioneer, you’ll be making money as you go.
It takes a bit of dedication and research to strike it rich in WoW, but if you have time to spare, you have time to earn WoW Gold. If you don’t have the time to try the methods above, you can quickly and safely purchase WoW Gold from reputable virtual currency stores like EpicToon.com. All of these options are available to you.
