How do I make gold in World of Warcraft?

“Buying a calculator will not teach you calculus.” Sapu, Lead Dev, Trade Skill Master


Players have been downloading TSM, cut n pasting groups, strings, and whole profiles.

It is not possible to download an addon that you click to generate gold.

Do not depend on addons.

Addons change from expansion to expansion and patch to patch.

A good gold maker can make gold in any circumstance, in any expansion, with any addons or lack of them.


In order to make gold in any expansion, reverse engineer a sale, starting with what players need, working backwards until you find the cheapest way to provide it.

You can automate with addons later.

    hello again queen 😀
    i just read they will remove gold garrison misions and instead they will give garrison resources 🙁

    i want to ask you a thing: how much a person used to make on cataclysm or pandaria via professions daily cooldowns only? because i started on non private server wow at the end of cata, but by that time i was on a latin america server which has the prices too diferent from us servers 🙁

    that question is to predict around how much can i make with daily professions cd on legion 🙂 ty again and keep up the good work

      Honestly I remember making an absolute fortune with the ‘shuffle’ moving an item from one form to another: prospect ore, cut jewellery, disenchant it, make it to scroll, so I have high hopes for Legion but no idea right now of an actual gold value
