With the scheduled release of the next patch for World of Warcraft on December 11th, gold makers are ready to take their next step into the new world.

With the new patch comes new items to buy and sell.   One market that always gets good results is the pet market.

New Vendor Equals New Opportunities

The new patch will be introducing a new vendor right next to the where players queue up for Island Expeditions.


Captain Klarisa for the Alliance

Captain Zen’taga for the Horde



The new vendor bring new items to purchase.




A new toy that gives your pet its own ‘Cranky Crab’ mount

Gnarlwood Waveboard that lets you surf across water.
(replacement for the Water Strider mount for those who don’t have exalted with Nat Pagel in Mists of Pandaria)

Hand Anchor that transmogs your weapon into an anchor

Along with new toys comes Two new mounts.


Saltwater Seahorse for 500 Dubloons



Siltwing Albatross  for 1000 Dubloons



All of these items will take island expeditions to obtain that many Dubloons.
Many players will want the mounts before they look to purchase the other items.

Gold Found in Pet Sales

Pet sales are a strong part of your gold making machine.
With the new expansion comes two new pets to purchase with dubloons.


Crimson Octopode   – 100 Dubloons



Albino Duskwatcher   – 200 Dubloons



With many players looking to get the toys and mounts first.
The pets will be able to be sold at a premium on the Auction House

Also with the new Gnomeregan pet battle dungeon opening up, new pets become valuable as players look to add to their stable of pet fighters.

Many players do not want to take the time to gather enough dubloons on a character to be able to purchase these items.



With the average Island Expedition taking between 10 and 15 minutes.
Gathering 100 or 200 dubloons can take a few hours.

Buying one of the pets and dropping it on the auction house will put a nice profit into your pocket.

First listing equals first sale

First one on the Auction House is usually the first sale and sets the bar for sales.
Having a good stock of dubloons going into the patch can set you making gold ahead of everyone else.

Profiting from Leveling

Leveling characters through the expansion starting at level 110 through the island expeditions is popular.
Instead of questing you can be stocking up on these dubloons quickly and efficiently as you race to level 120.


Set Sail to Profits

As December 11th gets closer will you be prepared to set sail, gather profits and enjoy the new world sitting on your own treasure chest.

Good luck and good profit hunting


About The Gold Dragon

The Gold Dragon is part of The Gold Queen’s “royal” court.  He began making gold his way in Azeroth 8+ years ago. Soon he took his menagerie of crafters and gatherers all the way to the legion HQ and beyond.  I’ve always believed in helping people if they ask and showing people that you do not have to be a Goblin Engineer to make gold in World of Warcraft. Many of the lessons I’ve learned in obtaining gold in World of Warcraft and adapted these skills to my personal life.

Having gained and spent over 8 million gold. Buying personal items and helping my guildmates.
Dancing on Azerothian mailboxes for gold tips is just a hobby.  I believe that everyone can make gold if they want to learn.
