"JMTC" How would you make gold if you had limited play time?

Markco isn't retiring hes just moving upstairs :D

This is my post for JMTC's WoW Gold Blogging Carnival the theme for this month is advice you would give people who have limited gold making time.

This is a category I personally fall into and I suspect so do many Gold Bloggers. We dont sit all day on the PC or on Remote AH camping the Auction House. Some of us have to work for a living :( If your playtime is limited through real life and when you do play you raid, level or do something else that is fun for you then maybe you need a helping hand making gold with the least amount of input possible.

Auction House Junkies or just junk.....

Extreme title I know, sorry Cold and Wes but it got you all to look didn't it. Personally I really like the podcast and I dont think I'm alone. Once the guys get into it we will start to see more diversity which is great to look forward to.

Double up gold from Heavy Savage Armor Kits

I kind of stumbled upon this as I was levelling my Leatherworking, as always check your server prices. The cost of Savage Leather is hovering at 4g50s per leather. Heavy Savage Leather is around 32g per item. Heavy Savage Armor Kit on the otherhand sell for 160 - 200g each.

Maths bit......

Savage Leather x 5 @4g50s  =  22.5g per Heavy Savage Leather
4 x Heavy Savage Leather  =  ca. 90g per Heavy Savage Armor Kit

Heavy Savage Armor Kit = 160 - 200g

These are supposedly pre Greater Mastery on a par with Mastery for tanks so a few will sell that way and maybe some people just have a stamina fetish that needs feeeding like in WotLK........ I am not a PVP'er so I am not sure how they stack up for BG's and arena's.

Check out your servers prices and market, maybe something in there for you.

Check out my earlier post Quick gold from Frostweave Cloth if you missed it.

Quick gold from Frostweave Cloth

On my server Frostweave Cloth is relatively cheap, under 1g per cloth. Bolts of Frostweave on the otherhand are going for at least 10g each. This represents double the price of the cost of Frostweave Cloth.

A great farming spot for this is in Icecrown, Valley of the Fallen Heroes:

It has a very good spawn rate and people has claimed to get over 10 stacks per hour with Northern Cloth Scavenging. Figure in the greens, silver and vendor trash and it is still a worthwhile place to farm the cloth. In my post Dont forget your bags or more specifically bag!! I demonstrated Frostweave Cloths worth in the common market and if you farm the cloth as oppose to buying it you also have other options open to you the most likely being:

Im a also quite certain that solo farming WotLK Dungeons at level 85 would also bring in a nice haul on gold, cloth, greens and vendor trash/items. This is something I will check out over the next few days and report back on.

No-one can tell you how to earn your gold, some people like to farm, some like to camp the auction house and some like to do it all (or try to). Try not to forget, it is a game and you should be having fun doing whatever it is you are doing. If the fun factor is gone and its starting to feel like a chore then maybe take a break or check out another game for a change of scenery.

Thanks for reading guys,

Making Gold through pet farming

As most pet collectors know there is only one source of reliable pet information and thats at warcraftpets.com, Breanni keeps the site up to date for all avid pet collectors. I myself was an avid collector amassing 111 pets until I stopped near the end of wrath.

Mageshadow posted on new drop zones for the new whelps before Cataclysm was released but I cant seem to find the post anywhere.

Im going to concentrate on the 4 whelps that drop from various zones around Azeroth:

Is flipping still viable?!

We have had more new players entering the game since "The Shattering" and the start of Cataclysm. Some of those players do not yet really understanding the mechanics of gold making and selling on the Auction House. People selling world drops for cheap on the Auciton House has led me to pick up a few hot gold makers.

I am going to put a few images up, the quality isn't too good as I didn't have much time today to edit the pictures. A green box is what the current going rate is or what I have sold them for and a red box is what I purchased the item(s) for or what todays minimum buyout is.

Easy 12000g profit from a cute and cuddly

Hyacinth Macaw used to be big business and gold for anyone lucky enough to have and to sell one. Nowadays they are a zone drop and are more abundant around the Auction House. The drop rate is still muted to be very low at roughly a 1-5000 rate but more are seen on the Auction House.

Poll results and a few questions?


Blizzard pay attention we have quitters in the house, 23% of disappointed people who voted said they would quit WoW after only the first 6 weeks of Cataclysm. However, I would be interested to see how the figures for WoW really weigh up. Supposedly 12 million subscribers worldwide but I doubt that is the real story.

Trading down to a snails pace??!!

Very slow time on the gold making front at the moment. The AH trading seems to have slowed to a snails pace, trade chat is dead and more worryingly so are my sales. I posted a few quick mysales pictures so you can see what I have sold the most of over the last 2 weeks or so. Picking out a few:
