Tips for Earning Gold for Your Character in World of Warcraft
By Donovan Baldwin
As in our modern world, gold is one of the most important commodities in World of Warcraft. Without it, you won't be able to buy the things you need, such as weapons, and other items which your character needs to complete quests and to level up in the gain.
If you are playing World of Warcraft, then you will find that there are methods that will help you make gold rather easily.
It's best to earn it yourself anyway, as buying gold from illegal websites will only get your account banned or even hacked by the very people who sold you the gold.
Here are some popular ways that you can make gold for your character in World of Warcraft easily and legally.
The first step is to choose a gathering profession for your character. Gathering professions can really help you make a substantial amount of gold in the game which you can then use for various purposes.
One good gathering job is mining.
Engineers and blacksmiths in the game always need miners to provide them with the raw materials they need to fabricate weapons and armors, for example. For iron and mithril, you should visit the Arathi Highlands. If you need something more exotics, such as thorium and Arcane Crystals, get your character to mine in the Eastern Plaguelands and the Burning Steppes.
Skinning is another profession that has the potential to make a lot of gold for your character. For killing creatures for a quest, the Stranglethorn Vale is a great place to find raptors, panthers, and other beasts.
Yet another godd way to make money is by fishing, especially if you try your hand at fishing for pearls.
Black pearls can sell for as much as 10 Gold per stack and one Golden Pearl can sell for as much as 30 gold.
A WoW Character wanting to gather can try herbalism. For high profit, look for plagueblooms in the Eastern and Western Plaguelands, and ghost mushrooms in the Hinterlands.
Another tip is to try combining the gathering profession with the service profession. By doing this, you will be able to use the things you gather to craft various items.
One example of this would be to combine alchemy and herbalism. These go well together. Alchemy always needs herbs to make potions, and herbalism is perfect profession to gather the herbs you need.
Another way to earn gold through combining professions is to make leatherworking and skinning combined professions. The leather you gather can be used to make armor and save a lot of money.
You can always sell the things you craft for gold.
As you can see, with a little thought and effort, you won’t have to resort to buying gold for cash. By doing jobs for your character, you can easily earn gold in no time at all. Success in World of Warcraft is much the same as in the "real" world. Learn and practice all you can in order to master the profession that you picked for your character and you will find that making gold is quite easy to do.
These are just a few tips for earning gold for your character in the game of World of Warcraft. Using these methods, you can be be pretty sure that you will eventually have a fun time playing the game without getting frustrated.
However, even better than earning gold in World of Warcraft, this "game" can be used to sharpen your skills for success in the real world.
