In Classic, obtaining your mount at level 40 and when you reach (or hopefully soon after) level 60 is a huge landmark for your character. After obtaining your level 40 mount, you will be able to move from place to place more quickly, shortening your leveling time. Obtaining your epic level 60 mount will allow you to arrive on time to raids with the rest of the group, and you will be much more likely to be accepted into PvP pre-made groups. Depending on the competitiveness and timeline of the server, an epic mount can be a requirement for this. In addition to these benefits, a mount, especially an epic mount, is a huge status symbol in the game.
Getting a mount is tough and is why it is such a landmark point for your character. Gold is not easily obtainable in Classic WoW. It is prudent to be frugal with your hard-earned coin and to accrue as much gold as possible during the leveling process and to plan as early as possible for figuring out how to pay for your mounts however you can.
There are lots of things to find and gather in the world: leather, fish, ore, herbs, clothes, stones, gems, recipes, essences, shards, special reagents and not only. Everything can be sold.
This way may require lots of time to get a solid amount of gold, but do not forget about luck. Pure luck finding a Black Lotus or mining a couple of Arcane Crystals may save you hours of grind and double your daily income.
It is a great advantage to start making some silver and your first gold coin at low levels already. Skinning is a nice choice here. Fast and easy way to gather resources, leather of all kinds while leveling for those who are at the race to level 60. There are many good spots to grind beast mobs and skin them. I like doing it as a Troll Hunter, trolls have a passive racial ability: + 5% bonus damage against beasts.
Most profitable professions are considered to be Herbalism and Enchanting in pair. You can have Enchanting only for Disenchanting skill, it will bring decent gold. Consider the fact of disenchanting all soulbound armor, not just selling them to a vendor, but I do not recommend to disenchant any kind of weapons, it is more profitable to sell it to a merchant if it is a soulbound item, or sell it on auction house if it is BoE (bind on equip).
Remember, you cannot pass level 225 skill in professions unless you reach level 35.
Always sell all your stuff on Auction House, don’t be lazy, it’s your money!
This option is better to use at level 40+. Higher level you are is better, more money you make then. All you do is farming dungeons or specific bosses. Here you kill a few birds with one stone: you get lots of experience (make sure you have all quests in your quest log, always ask your teammates to share) if you are still leveling; improve your current gear; and loads of loot (clothes, recipes, even crappy grey items selling for a lot to a vendor). If you are in a group, think about your groupmates if they need an item or not, don’t roll need on everything.
If you are playing a mage and have reached level 55 already, it’s good to start Dire maul East or Blackrock Depths solo farming. The only bad thing here is five dungeon resets limit per hour.
With a hunter at level 60 is good to go to Maraudon or Dire Maul North Tribute. Pick up enchanting for disenchanting skill to be able to loot unique items if you get them dropped, so you just disenchant the one you have already.
Consider, sometimes it is more profitable to make quick short runs in lower level dungeons than higher level area.
Always sell all items on Auction House. If you are not sure about its value, then check the market. There are some risks that item won’t be sold and you will lose money just putting it on Auction House. Good idea to make bank low level characters and keep everything there until the weekend. All sales increasing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Besides, you can advertise in a trade channel to inform people that an item you are selling has been put on Auction House.
Professions and Crafting
Here is where the REAL gold making starts. So you go to Dalaran and you learn some professions (not gathering eww). Do all the quests from Dalaran for those professions, and once you're done with the quest chain you go buy the other recipes from the vendor next to the profession trainer. Finally you go try get the rank 2s/3s if you can be bothered (these are usually from exalted reputation/hc dungeons. Ideally you want to do this on your alts as well and get all 8 of the crafting professions (so 4 level 110s). But you can always start with just 1 or 2 :) On my YouTube channel I have covered every single profession, going into exactly what is profitable and how you can make millions both from new legion stuff and old world transmogs/useful items. Moreover, ITSSKITZ has done some very good jewelcrafting guides, and WTBGold and SoulSoBreezy have covered Inscription in detail.
Flipping the Auction House
Use the demand for certain items to your advantage; buy them at a below-average price and then resell them at a profit. This method is quite unique because you don't need level, gear, or high amounts of time to implement it... but you need a hefty initial investment of Gold (you have to buy the stuff you're gonna resell, after all). We will not pretend that Flipping is a miraculous, secret method; many people do it and do it well, and there are addons that can help you with it (we recommend the classic - Auctioneer). If you are new to flipping, there are some important things to remember:
There is a 5% auction house cut on all sold items; take it into account during your profit calculations.
If your auction expires, you don't get your deposit back, and the longer the chosen auction time, the higher the deposit.
Try to post short auctions, not only because deposits are lower, but also because you will get undercut before your auctions end anyway; this will minimize your costs.
Don't rush your auctions; if your assets fall in price, hold them for some time (on a bank alt or even in a mailbox), prices will rise up again most likely (they tend to fluctuate weekly - everything gets a bit more expensive on weekends because of increasing server population).
Focus on items that are needed by many players in large quantities; crafting materials, especially ones needed for consumables and popular crafted end-game gear are great choices. You can also search for rare but still in-demand stuff, like recipes - many people will try to sell them quickly, below their actual value - take advantage of that.
Think, analyze, and be patient; if you notice that auction house gets flooded with a certain item constantly, you might want to skip that item for the time being; its price will most likely drop, and you'll be getting undercut all the time - not worth it.
The price of materials is often lower than the price of a complete Item. If you have appropriate professions, you can make additional WoW Classic Gold by buying mats on the AH, crafting stuff, and then selling it.
Speaking of proper investment, you can buy WOW Classic Gold in some stores when your inventory is in short supply, as you can't do all the quests on your own. Here is a good store WOW Classic Gold for Sale , https://www.igvault.com/WOW-Classic-Gold , becoming the nice assistant while playing.You are worried about the price and security, with this in mind, it can be guaranteed on the site, which is cheaper than other stores and protected by a security system.
