WoW TBC Gold farming is a crucial part of the World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic experience. You can expect to earn a fair bit while leveling in Burning Crusade Classic, but if you want to supplement that income, this guide will point you in the right direction. Here are some tips for making gold in WoW Burning Crusade Classic so you can unleash your inner goblin.
Playing the Auction House
Players who can effectively play the Auction House will often find the most success when it comes to making gold. Almost every player will need to use the Auction House in some capacity, so using it to your advantage to make money off of the game’s population as opposed to feeding gold into it will be a great way to achieve long standing wealth in WoW: TBC Classic.
The best way to make consistent money off the Auction House is to buy raiding materials such as potions and flasks at a low price during the weekend, and then sell them for a higher price after the raid reset on Tuesday. When raids reset during the week, raiders will inevitably be looking for potions and flasks, so sitting on the ones you bought at a low price until you’re able to list them for a high price will net you a ton of gold week in, week out.
In the meantime, if you notice that a specific item on the Auction House, like as a material like cloth or herbs, is listed abnormally low, you can use a similar strategy to hike the price up once you claim the materials for yourself.
Keep in mind that playing the Auction House like it’s the Stock Market could get tedious for some players, and is only a recommended strategy for players who are genuinely interested in turning gold-making into a core part of the WoW experience.
You'll pick up a lot of junk when you loot enemies. You may also be tempted to only loot the stuff that looks worthwhile, but money you can make by selling grey items will soon add up.
Get into the habit of checking how much items are worth on the auction house, too. It may be tempting to sell unwanted stuff to a vendor for convenience, but you may get way more for it by selling to other players.
Optimise your bag space
Having lots of bag space as you can get is always worthwhile, but it's especially important if you have a gathering profession. The materials will quickly take up room in your bags and you don't want to have to make needless trips to offload at a bank or the auction house. Even if you don't want to bother with professions, it's still a good idea to clear out your bags as often as you can.
Make a second character
Having a second character is useful for a few reasons. You won't have to level the character to 70, but standing them next to a bank and mailbox means you can send any excess stuff from your main character to them easily. There's no auction house in Outland either, so if you're planning on selling stuff, it might make sense to use an alt camped next to one in Azeroth.
Of course, if you're planning on actually leveling another character, all the better. Choose a couple of WoW Classic professions that complement your main character's choices and put them to work, too. A third could be your glorified personal banker.
Gathering Professions are very important to fund the supply for the professions at the start of the expansion. Many people are looking for crafting mats to level their crafting professions, like tailoring, blacksmithing, jewel crafting, etc. Because of this, the auction house is going to take and sell plenty of gatherable items. Those who manage to get epic flying earlier will reap the most from all of this. Although, this value from the gathering will drop slowly and slowly as the expansion progress. Consequently, the demand drops and the supply naturally increases, which is why this is one of the best ways to make gold in Phase 1 of TBC Classic.
One other tip for engineers is to use your flying to acquire gas cloud while on your mining routes. Gas clouds are a way to gather Motes of Shadow, Mana, and Air, with Shadow being the most valuable of the lot. As mentioned previously, motes of Shadows craft Primal Shadow, which is needed for Shadowcloth.
For those with Herbalism and who are ready to solo elites, Skettis in Terrokar is a nice spot. There are many endgame herbs there as it requires level 70 to get there. It is also a reliable spot for Ancient Lichen, but Coildfang dungeons have relatively easy to acquire. But the most promising aspect of the area is the elite kills. They grant Primals a steady source of gold while offering decent chances for acquiring BoE epic gear. Grabbing a pre-bis Life Giving Cloak can certainly bank you plenty of dosh, among other countless epics.
