World of Warcraft Gold Secrets

In World of Warcraft, every player knows that it's necessary to have a good amount of gold to go with whatever equipment, weapons, armor and mount you may have in order to be able to compete with other players. No matter how much experience you have, you need to have the best equipment, and that costs lots of money. If you're without your equipment, you're at a sore disadvantage compared to other players. After all, that sword or mount you've been wanting is going to cost more gold than you may have, and if you're intending to go into the higher level areas, the strongest equipment is needed. Here are a few ways to get World of Warcraft gold.

One of the best ways to get gold is to obviously train for it, meaning you go out and kill enemies and take whatever items and other valuables they may have on them at the time. When you do this, make sure you have a mage with you or someone else who can heal. In a way, it's like old-school console RPGs; you go into the field and kill enemies, not using items to heal yourself but just using magic Cure spells or the like. Items cost money - and the more items you use, the more you have to restock. Also, try to accurately gauge your level. Yes, you could take your level 20 fighter into the level 10 enemies, but there's not really going to be a lot of gold from them relative to what you should be getting. Try to fight monsters that are within a few levels of you - maybe two or three in either direction. This is because it takes a lot of time to get any worthy amount of gold from low-level enemies.

Once you get a good amount of kills on your record, you're likely going to have gained a few items to sell, because odds are you picked up armors you already had. So, you can go sell these, particularly to the goblin tribes. The goblins are pretty shrewd traders - they've had to be, dealing with Alliance and Horde, after all. The thing to remember about trading with goblins is to trade like them. Be aggressive in your selling. Every chance you get on the trading forum (and ONLY the trading forum) advertise your findings so you'll get the most interest. Also, set your price by looking in Auction houses - people are often willing to buy for higher than you think, so price your item at slightly lower than similar in the auction House.

When you're trading, have the actual transaction be done through a private message, or whisper. This helps to avoid too much competition - you can deal with one offer at a time. Another thing to keep in mind is the seasoning and location. In the mountains, where lots of ice-elemental creatures live, you're not going to do too well trying to sell a fire-based weapon or piece of armor, unless you happen across a character that plans on going to such a place.

Farming for gold in World of Warcraft is half killing enemies, half selling the items you get from them and all persistence. Sure, there are programs that tell you how to do it quickly, but it really takes the fun out of the game. You're an adventure hero; play like one.
