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

With Blizzcon starting to fade as a memory, there were some WOW economy items that were announce that might have been missed from all that was unveiled at the extravaganza.

These items will change or allow more opportunities in the game to add to your gold pile.

Introduction To New Allied Race Racials

Both the Zandalari and Kul’ Tiran races received racial bonuses that affect your WOW gold creation

Kul’ Tiran Human Allied Race

Jack of All Trades is similar to the Racials for many of the other Races.  The racial ability will boost all crafting professions.

Zandalari Troll Allied Race

Zandalari Trolls will be able to loot more gold per monster looted.
The percentage is still unknown but even 5% more can add up quickly as you are running through quests.

New Dubloon Vendor And New Island Expeditions

With new expeditions comes more opportunities to obtain Expedition doubloons.  The panels introduced a new Dubloon Vendor that have BOE pets that can be sold on the AH

From between 100-200 doubloons per pet,  you can see where players that don’t want to spend the time doing island expeditions would be very interested in purchasing vanity and battle pets from the auction house.

Heroic Island Expeditions

Along with this new vendor came the introduction of 10 person Heroic Expeditions.   A group of players can join at the same time with added rewards and difficulty

Another opportunity for Paid ‘carries’ in a raiding situation.  Very lucrative for a guild or a group of like minded players.

Fist Weapon Transmogs

One of the biggest requests for transmog advocates is the ability to change fist weapons into other weapons.

Changes in what can be transmogged always brings on a rush of players to get that ‘cool look’ for their characters.
This gives more opportunities to sell one handed daggers and swords on the auction house.

Whomper – New Charity Benefit Pet

Whomper is the new pet that Blizzard sells every year to support a charity.  With each adoption a donation is sent to Code.org to support empowering schools with access to high technology and empowering females and minority in the realms of technology

Spending a little of that in game gold can help support an excellent non-profit organization.

Days of Blizzcon Gold Making

Both large and small announcements can affect the future of your gold making.   Taking advantage of information,  planning and executing for investments can put your gold making into hyper drive.|

Good Luck and Good Gold Hunting

Day of the Dead Gold Guide 2018

Day Of the Dead is an event that occurs starting November 1st through the 3rd

This event is built around the real world holiday of Day of the Dead where some religions honor their dead

Day of the Dead: The Questline

The event centers around visiting a local graveyard for your race and accepting a quest as you give offerings to your ancestors

Quest Requirements

Level 5 (minimum to get cooking skill needed for Bread of the Dead)
1 gold (to buy recipe needed and also materials needed plus flight if needed)

Day of the Day Quest:

To finish the quest easier make sure to go to a cooking trainer in a major city and pick up

1 simple flour (since you have to buy 5,  you can mail them to each of your alts to save a small amount)

Go to a local inn in a major city and pick up

1 Ice Cold Milk (again you buy these in stacks of 5 so send the extra to your alts)

While you are at this,  make sure that you have trained your cooking skill to level 1.
If you want to pick up a few levels you can buy the materials and make some extra.

The Graveyard that you need to visit is based on your race.

The Bread of the Dead is not able to be mailed or placed on the Auction House since it is a time limited item.

When you reach your designated Graveyard you will find a small bluish fire pit

– Pro tip.  If you are level 10 you can die in your home city and then you will be sent to the graveyard faster.
   You are able to resurrect up to level 10 without any resurrection sickness penalty.

This is Ghostly Cooking Fire that is needed to produce one loaf of the Bread of the Dead.

Buy two things from Chapman who is the vendor for the Day of the Dead items and has the items you need.

Purchase a Bread of the Dead and a either a Orange Marigold or a Bouquet of the Orange Marigolds.

The Orange Marigold is a one use item while the Bouquet of the Orange Marigolds is a transmog item that
can be used during the event

One you have crafted your Bread of the Dead click on the Orange Marigold to bring out the spirits for the quest.

Now pick up the quest which is simply to give them a loaf of your Bread of the Dead

After you have given them the turn in

Enjoy you’re new pet

Advanced Gold Making Opportunities

This event is a good opportunity to get a lot of cageable pets that can be sold on the AH.

Ease of access means that there will be a large amount on the AH at any given time.

The goal is to raise the sale price of your pets during the event as well as after

Raising the Sale Price Of Your New Pet

Use a Flawless Battle stone to raise your pet to Rare Quality

Level your pet to Level 25 either via pet battles or using Pet Leveling stones

This can raise your asking price by 5x to 10x the normal price

Other Opportunities Of Making Gold During The Event

Selling Single Milk and Single Flour on the Auction House

Players many times do not remember where the simple cooking vendor is or choose to just buy items quickly from the Auction House

Pricing these 10 times the normal vendor price can bring in some gold into your account quickly.

Creating multiple low levels to finish the quest.

This is a more questionable method to making gold but it is an option.   Some may consider this taking advantage of the game.

You have multiple options of creating characters that can finish the questline quickly

–   Allied races start at level 20

–   Normally created characters can level to 5 quickly in their starting zones.

–   Death Knights start at level 55

Once you reach the point that you can use a flight path on the upper level you can quickly fly to the zone that you need to finish the questline
(Undead race is the quickest since you are not that far from the Undercity graveyard)

Once you have finished the questline you can decide whether to keep the character or delete it and start again.

Selling ‘rides’ and ‘portals’ to the different graveyards.

Some new players will have some difficulty reaching their graveyard. This is a prime opportunity to sell your abilities and escort them to where they want to go.

Charging 100g to 500g per ride can add up quickly.  If you are a mage, setting up portals to main cities can net a tidy profit

Celebrating Day of the Dead with Gold

The Day of the Dead event is an excellent opportunity to enjoy both the culture of the event as well as netting a profit both during and after the event.   So enjoy the days and break some bread with your game ancestors.

Warlords of Draenor Farming During Hallows End

These are the same areas that you can do the four quests that give you the four quests to complete in this area

After you pick up the quests fly to the designated area.

Culling the Crew  –  Kill 12 Boneship Crewmembers
Foul Fertilizer –  8 Kegs of Dread Fertilizer
Smashed Squashlings  –  Kill 6 Growing Squashlings

The entire quests in that area requiring killing mobs including one on the middle of the three ships in the water

Completing the fourth of your quests

Mutiny on the Boneship   – Kill Bonerender

A flying mount makes this trip easier though it is possible to swim and climb up the side of the ship.

Finishing these quests will get you 5 Spooky Supplies (we will use these when we get back to our Garrison)

When you go back to the small island all the mobs on this island has a chance to drop the Coin of Many Faces

A ranged player (Warlock,  Hunter,  Shaman) can stand in one place and hit most of the mobs as they respawn.
The important part is to make sure to loot often because the mobs have a habit of despawning from time to time.

A good 30 minutes of farming can easily net you 5-8 Coins of Many Faces.

Just as any other event, players will list these on the AH often.
But holding them while the supplies dwindle can bring a premium to your farming

Rare Pet Farming

Remember those spooky supplies that we collected finishing those quests?

Here is where we will be using them.

First after you have turned in the quests go to the vendor to the right

Purchasing the Creepy Crawlers and right clicking it in your bag decorates your garrison

This gives you access to some new pet battles

3 different undead pets

Where these can be powerful undead pets they are not cageable/tradeable.  But you can invite others into your garrison to have access

You never know if someone might be interested in paying to battle pet in your garrison to pick these up for their collection.

Arachnis

Along with the three new pets,  a new rare will be right outside your garrison

Where this rare spider respawns quickly it is locked to one kill per character per day

Arachnis drops a couple of very special items

The regular sack of spiders is the more common of the two drops and is a single use item.

The Sack of Spectral Spiders is a toy that can be dropped on the Auction House for sale.

With a low drop rate on many servers the price of this item can reach 4,000 gold or more.

Keep in mind that after the event keep your Hallows End ornaments up so you can still access the three ghost pets as well as Arachnis even after the Hallows End event is done.

Hallows End profit

The Hallows End event can set you up for added profit not just during the event but also after the event.   With just a little time spent in Draenor you can add toys,  pets to your auction house profit rotation.

Thanks goes to the members of the TGQ discord channel for helping with the research on this lost holiday experience.

Good Luck and Spooky Profit Hunting

The Hallows End Event occurs goes from the 18th of October to November 1st.

Full of different quests to obtain tricky treats.   Not just candy but also to turn in for transmog items, pets and toys for your collection.

Large amounts of gold can be obtained through the event and even as the Headless Horseman leaves for another year.

The Currency

Obtaining the Tricky Treats and Other Items

There are Multiple ways to obtain Tricky Treats during the Hallows End Event

Finishing Daily Quests found in multiple zones

–  Under the Crooked Tree questline starting in Dalaran and ending in Valshara

Defeat Aria Sorrowhart and open up her Hag’s Belongings  + 6 Tricky Treats
This is an available Daily quest

This nets you 6 Tricky Treats total plus a chance at one of four Holiday Transmog cloth Hats (Bind on Pickup)

For Horde in Undercity (make sure to talk to Zidormi to turn back time)
For Alliance in Stormwind these quests are available daily

A Time To Build Up    + 1 Tricky Treats                                                                                              A Time To Break Down   + 3 Tricky Treats

                                                                                              

One time Quests in Undercity/Stormwind

Hallows End Treats for Jesper (Alliance)  + 10 Tricky Treats
Hallows End Treats for Spoops (Horde)    + 10 Tricky Treats

Daily Quests also in Stormwind (Alliance) or Undercity (Horde)

Clean Up In Undercity (Horde)             +3 Tricky Treats
Clean Up in Undercity (Alliance)          +3 Tricky Treats

Stink Bombs Away (Both)  +10 Tricky Treats

Finishing this area can net you

18 Daily Tricky Treats
10 Tricky Treats from the One time quest (Jesper or Spoops)

For Horde in either Eversong Woods, Tirisfal Glades (turning back time with Zidormi)
For Alliance in either Azuremyst IsleElwynn Forest or Dun Morogh

From the Matron found in these areas

Let the Fires come (Pick up Quest from Matron before defeating the Headless Horseman fire event)

Fire training   +1 Tricky Treat
(One time quest.  If you have done it in previous years it will not appear)

After you put out all the fires you defeat the Headless Horseman which gives you the quest to turn in

Smash the Pumpkin  –  + 5 to 7 Tricky Treats from Crudely Wrapped Gift

From either of these zones you can net 7-9 Tricky Treats every day.

Queuing for Headless Horseman Every Day

(level 98 or higher are the only ones that can get the loot filled pumpkin

After Defeating the Headless Horseman you receive

When you open this you can receive 4-6 tricky treats

This can also be done daily.

As a bonus you can receive

This is a very good tool during the holiday (it disappears afterward the holidays) because it is instant cast
so going from Farming node to Farming node can be a little bit quicker.

If you finish all of the single and daily quests available plus picking up all of the candy from the different points around the different zones you can easily net between 550-600 Tricky Treats.

Wise choice of what to purchase with these Treats will be important for future sales

Out of the box gold making from Hallows End

There are different ways of making gold with the Hallows End event.

–   If you have a two seated mount you can escort lower level players to the different candy spots for a charge

–   Many of the different achievements require specific wands to be used.  These wands drop from multiple items
during the event and charging 5g to 25g can add profit into your pocket

Pet Sales

There are four pets that can be obtained and sold during the event.

Sinister Squashling

Sold for 150 Tricky Treats at the Tricky Treat Vendor (Stormwind/Undercity)
This is the most commonly found from the different candy drops so is very common

Widget the Departed

150 Tricky Treats from the Undercity/Stormwind Vendor

Naxxy

150 Tricky Treats from the Undercity/Stormwind Vendor

Cursed Birman
150 Tricky Treats from the Undercity/Stormwind Vendor

Looking at all of the tradeable/sellable pets from the event the Sinister Squashling is the most commonly found
(it drops from many of the treat bags and from the Loot Filled Pumpkin).

The other three can be very profitable to purchase.   Storing these in your bank and selling later as the months go by
You can set a higher price as players want the pet but the higher priced ones are not as available.

Adding Value To Your Pet Sales

Many pets are added to the Auction House during and after the Hallows eve event.   Most end up being the Sinister Squashling which can drive the value down considerably.

There are multiple ways of adding value to your pet sales

–  Offering ‘Bundled’ pet deals in trade chat

Many players will not want to take the time to obtain enough Tricky Treats to purchase all of the pets.  With four pets plus multiple toys and other masks it is impossible for a player to get enough Tricky Treats to purchase everything.  With being able to cage and sell the four pets sold this could relieve the need for players to obtain enough treats for these four.

You could easily bundle all four pets for 100,000g or more and with a little patience net good sales.

–  Leveling pets to sell

Right now with the new expansion it takes between 13-15 pet battles to level a lvl 1 pet to lvl 25.
Add the different boosting items (pet treats,  battle pet holidays) and this time gets shortened.

Players are willing to pay higher for strong pets that are already leveled.
4x to 10x profits from normal pets if a player takes the time to finish a few pet battles

(extra hint,  if you are leveling a new character you get XP for each pet battle).

My favorite zone to do this is Nazmir around the edges of the water.   Having two max level flying type
can eat up these random pet battles very quickly.  With each battle lasting 2-5 minutes you can finish
leveling a new pet in under an hour.

Great Holiday Allows Even Greater Profits.

Hallows eve is one of the many events that a shrewd gold maker can use their skills and knowledge to make gold not just during the vent but in the months after the event.

Good Luck and Spooky Ghoul Hunting

War mode was introduced in World of Warcraft:  Battle for Azeroth as a replacement for PVP servers.
This new mode allowed players to participate in World PVP when they wanted too and not be forced
to world PVP.

The Basics of War Mode

War mode allows players to attack other players from the opposite faction.   War mode adds the PVP flavor without requiring players to always participate which happened on PVP centric servers.

War mode also adds different ways of profiting from participating in this new mode of play.

To toggle war-mode,  a player goes to their major home city (Orgrimmar/Stormwind) then goes to talents portion of their character sheet.
on the far left can be seen the toggle for war-mode as well as different PVP talents that are only activated during this mode.

War mode also has some specific benefits in gold making.   Warmode opens up new frontiers as well as
offers bonuses for remaining in PVP mode while venturing out into the world.

Five Ways to Profit from War Mode

1.     10% bonus to war resources

War resources are important when starting quests at your mission table.    Each of these mission table can net
reputation tokens,  pet charms and gold.

War resources are also used to train troops to help with your table missions

2.    10% to bonus gold

World quests during the Legion expansion became a very lucrative way of making gold in quick bursts.   Battle for Azeroth is no different.  As the difficulty increases so does the gold rewards.

Warmode offers a 10% bonus to all gold missions.  Also included is a bonus to gold dropped from monster kills as well.

3.    PVP caches

In random areas across the different zones,  PVP chests will drop.  These can contain high level gear,  resources and gold as well as other items.  Once the zone is notified that a chest has been dropped there is mad dash for players to reach these chests to loot them.

4.   Zone Sharding And ‘Bonus’ Resource Gathering

New technology was introduced in the Mists of Pandaria expansion that would allow players to be in the same area but be placed in different ‘shards’.  This originally was used for content creation but has expanded with the introduction of war-mode.

War-mode places a player in a different shard with other players in war mode.   On many servers this lessens the competition for resources as players look to run set routes they have uncovered.

Skinning and Herbalist routes can become much more profitable with less competition.  There is a certain amount of challenge presented when being able to be attacked but the risks can outweight the rewards when less gathering competition is involved.

5.  10% Bonus Azerite Power

Where bonus azerite doesn’t specifically affect gold making,  it can give you better abilities and make mob farming and survivability when finishing up quests.

Many of the 2nd and 3rd level traits on high gear are built to increase health regeneration as well as defense capabilities.  Some of these traits also include speed boosts after killing mobs.  Faster kills and movement allow players to farm faster between nodes for mining and Herbalism.

Boosts of speed allow players to get to their skinning targets and move onto the next mob.  More resource gathering means more production or sales.

Profiting From Warmode

War-mode is a fun and inviting way of playing World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth.  It opens up new gold making opportunities as well as adventure in an ever increasing and active gaming world.

Good Luck and Good War-mode Profit Hunting

Hello

This will be a little different of an entry.  I wanted to sit down to get everyone caught up on what was going on with the Gold Castle.

As was told in September,  TGQ and the Gold Castle will be changing how we handle the TGQ newsletter as well as the Legion-Gold.com  when it comes to gold making.

The newsletter will still exist. I will be writing that (The Gold Dragon, that’s me) as TGQ finishes up her college studies for her Masters degree.

While that is happening she will also be working more on the Legion-gold.com guide for patreon subscribers. That will be her main focus for the future.  Of course she will write here from time to time when a spark hits.  This will always be her home and she is important to everyone.

For the day to day and week to week writing I will be doing the writing.  Hopefully I can keep the same quality in the future that TGQ has offered everyone for the past 11 years.  Don’t worry, she will still have a wooden spoon at the ready in case I go off the deep end.

80/20 Percentage

Up til now, the newsletter has worked with an 80/20 percentage.  80 percent of the information has been free to all.   With 20% being on the legion-gold site.

This percentage has changed at the start of October.   Much of the information for gold making will be found at the Legion-gold.com website which is a patreon only website.   After much discussion and a reality check,  her majesty decided that she liked to eat and support her family and the knowledge that she has offered over the years is worth the extra cost.

Think of it this way.   Currently a Patreon subscription has a suggested $10 dollar.   That gives you access to the Legion-gold guide as well as to our Discord server with a specific channel with like minded gold makers.  Both TGQ and I hang around that channel so if there is a dying question that someone has they can ask us directly.

If you’re like many, you are paying $15 dollars U.S. for a subscription.   I have no doubt that if the principles that are presented with the TGQ gold guide and the Discord information you could be saving not only the $15 dollar subscription fee but also be that much farther ahead in your gold making future.

Purchasing items from the online store with gold. Digital pets, and the varied amount of items that can be found on the Blizzard digital store.

The Patreon support also allows TGQ to work on her degree,  support her family as well as look at the future of The Gold Castle.

Future Is Bright With The Gold Castle.

As we continue on, there are more plans to give more to both Patreons members.

Some of the ideas that might be introduced into the future

–   Patreon only Twitch streams from TGQ (and maybe even myself).
–   One on One counseling on gold making.
–   Discounts on the future TGQ merchandise.
–   Access to Patreon only contests
–   Affiliate Twitch streamers and expansion into different areas of WOW gaming (not just gold making).

All of these are dependent on what you want as well as the support that has been offered up til now and the future support.

The Future of the TGQ Newsletter

All of you are our castle members and you are important to us.   That hasn’t changed and never will change.

The Newsletter will continue to be published on Tuesday and Thursdays during the week.   Occasionally there will be ‘special editions’ if something comes up that is important.

This will allow the same type of research per article as well as time for both TGQ and I to keep to our Patreon commitments.

All of our subscribers are important to us. Again that never will change.

The future is bright with the The Gold Castle. Both her Majesty and I invite you to not only enjoy the ride, but invite others to enjoy it with you.

Good Luck and Good Profit Hunting

Talk like a pirate day is a one day event that happens in Booty Bay in Stranglethorn.

The event by itself is based on the unofficial holiday ‘talk like a pirate day’ which encourages people to well, talk like a pirate.

Pirate Gold Making Opportunities

With many events, there are opportunities to sell when people are in a particular spirit or thought.
In this case, we need to help complete the ‘pirate’ ensemble. Why be a pirate for one day when
you can be a pirate every day?

The Shirts

Tailors take the stage with their ability to craft pirate-centric items

White Swashbucklers Shirt

Red Swashbuckler Shirt

These two shirts require low level mats and some items purchased from the Tailoring vendor.
The pattern is taught by the tailoring trainer.

Black Swashbuckler Shirt

The Black Swashbuckler shirt is learned from a pattern that is  purchased from Narkk in Cape of Stranglethorn.

Narkk sells this pattern In Booty Bay and can be sold on the AH for those that don’t realize it is a vendor sold item.

You can see on this server there aren’t that many of the shirts on the AH.  Buying them out to double the price can net some well deserved booty (profits).

A little advertising in the Trade Channel can wake people up to their availability.

Swashbucklers ‘Set’

There is a set that is specifically called the Swashbuckler set.  It covers all of the different armor areas.
It’s a drop from 40’s to 50’s mobs (this makes it more difficult to obtain after the changes of mobs and leveling).

The eye patch is the more rare and the more expensive of the set.   So keeping an eye and reselling these
can net next pieces of 8.

Grouping all of the items and a little trade chat advertisement can give you an advantage over selling the individual items on the AH

Many players do not want to take the time to find the entire set.

Want to be a Pirate all the time... Here's how

Pirates need Hats

There are quests that will award a seaworthy hat,  but in this case we have one in our tailoring arsenal that can be sold to those that want the entire pirate experience.

The Admiral’s Hat tailoring pattern is sold by Cowardly Crosby who can be found in The Cape of Stranglethorn.

Both the Admiral’s Hat and the pattern are BOE and able to be sold on the AH.
One you have added the pattern to your tailoring abilities,  selling a few on the AH
can once again let you buy that gold peg leg (I promise,  no more pirate jokes).

Pirates Need Pets

You are not a pirate without a parrot.

Taking advantage of your knowledge you can look to purchase a few of these colorful partners and resell them
to complete a players pirate ensemble.

The Green Wing MaCaw is a drop from the Deadmines.    This is a resellable that can shiver your timbers
in gold and profit.

Hyacinth Macaw

This is a rare world drop from the Stranglethorn area.   Either farming this or looking to flip a purchase of the cage in the AH or on a private sale.

Senegal

The Senegal is available from our good friend Narkk in Booty Bay.  While you’re looking to purchase your Black Swashbuckler shirt pattern picking up a few of these and dropping them on the AH can get you some interesting sales on your tally-ho sheet.
(okay,  so maybe a couple more).

Every Pirate needs a good weapon.

There are many different weapons a pirate can have.

A couple of the more interesting ones that you could net some good sales.

Tremendous Tankard of Terror

This item is no longer available as a drop in game.  So when found and put on the AH from other means (players finding in old guilds etc) there is a high expectation to sell.   It can be transmogrified (one of the few Mugs that can be) so a pirate transmog can add this and be the star of their own Caribbean show.

Steelscale Crushfish

This is a uncommon drop that only drops at the Darkmoon Faire area (so it becomes on fishable one week a month).

This places it in a high cost/high demand which is what makes it a strong candidate for sale/flipping on the AH.

Blackwater Cutlass

The Blackwater Cutlass is a twink weapon that drops from the deadmines instance.
With the level change it can range from level 15 all the way to level 85.

The item has an interesting habit of going up and down.    A high level 85 can go for a few gold.  But the closer you get to a twink range (lvl 19,  lvl 29,  lvl 39) the higher the item can bring.

It’s also a very nice transmog weapon once players see it.  An item that gets lost from all the other items can be brought to players attention and sold for a hefty treasure chest (that one made it past the joke editor).

Every Pirate Needs Toys

Did you know that you hold the power to eat an item and become a pirate?
How about instantly turning someone into a pirate?

Savory Deviate Delight

This is an item from Warcraft classic that can be made with the cooking profession.

The pattern drops from mobs in the Northern and Southern Barrens.
The pattern used to be much more rare than it is now but many players still do not have it in their cookbook.

The item Savory Deviate Delight has a chance to turn you into a pirate or a ninja.

Another one of those items that can be used all year long.  With pirates being on the brain,  a little reminder that pirating isn’t just a one day a week can net some good sales (see,  told you no more pirate jokes)

Set Sail for New Profit Adventures

One day a year,  pirates become the focus of many players.  But showing them the pirate way that they can be searching out
treasure every day of the year.  While also adding gold doubloons to your bank.

What other items do you think could sell during talk like a pirate day.

Arrrr you ready to make some sales (last one I promise)

Good Luck and Good Pirate Gold 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 WoW I’ve also adapted to my personal life. I have gained and spent over 8 million gold. Spending on 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.

Warfronts : A New Gold Front

BFA Warfronts have become a very popular route to gearing characters.
Warfronts also can be a very good way of obtaining gold.

But before the warfronts begin, players need to turn in requested quest items to open up the warfront for their faction.
There are 11 different turn ins.

9 Profession based and two that include gold and war resources.

The idea is that each profession can have a turn in.  But this doesn’t limit a player to turn in for professions that aren’t theirs as well.

Controlling Warfronts

While one faction controls the area (after a week of battles) the other faction begins to
collect for their chance to take over the area.

Each turn in gives Honorbound/7th legion rep (500) plus 500 Artifact power.
With a total of 11 quests available that totals 5500 rep and 5500 Artifact power.

You can see why this would make these turn ins very valuable to players.

How to Profit from Warcraft Warfronts

Lets separate this into two areas.

First The Immediate Gold Opportunities.

Many times the EU turn ins are announced.   Going to your favorite World of Warcraft news feed,  seeing
which turn ins are active and then crafting these items to drop on the AH.

For the more adventurous of gold makers you can flip these from the AH since they are going to increase in value and demand.
Increase in value means big gold into your coffers.

Samples of turn ins

Week of 9/17 (these will change every week so keep this in mind)

US Turn ins

The US turn ins are almost always different than the EU for their turn ins

EU Turn-ins

Now, this will be very active.  Gold makers love things being active.
A volatile market can be both exciting and profitable

Your first line of profit is to craft or flip these items on the AH

Look at Straddling Viridium

With pricing like this,  a flip really isn’t a good idea.    But lets take a look at the raw gem market for Viridium


Now this looks a lot better. 

Looking at the difference between the uncut gem (100g rounded) vs cut gem (244g)
you could see a prime candidate to raise the level.

You can either buy out all of the reasonably priced raw stock (leave the ones that are looking for big gold buys per)
then either list them at the higher price (Usually I will list raw stock at 80% of the cut value).

To go farther with your profiting hunting, find yourself a buddy who is a jewelcrafter and have him craft them for you.
Make sure you are being good to the person and either leave a tip or cut them in on the percentage.

This is just one of the items that you can flip during when warfronts are active.
With players undercutting, a market that is active can give you a chance to flip multiple times a day.

The next part will help you plan for the future rounds of turn ins

Now The Long Term Opportunities

The most important part of these turn ins is that Information is Power (and Time is Money).

Players that got the information on what the turn-ins were and jumped on listing/flipping these were able
to profit the most.

That gives approximately 2-3 weeks between rounds of turn ins.
The gold pack tend to turn to other options to obtain gold,  ignoring many times a long term approach.

Information has been available of all of the expected turn-ins for the warfronts.
Each of the professions have 3 different items that could be tagged as turn ins for that round.

Also added in the Fishing/Cooking can be any of the fishes that are available in BFA waters

With this knowledge you can plan ahead for which items can be farmed or purchased as they dwindle in price.

Keeping an eye on the markets when the faction is in control of the warfront can give a head start to your sales
when your faction is working for control of the warfront.

The last item to look at is materials that are connected to crafting.
You should already be flexing your auction house flipping power with raw materials such as ore and meats.

With profession crafting being slowing down,  crafting for warfronts can give a boost in the raw materials.
Especially for Jewelcrafters being able to prospect for the Gems used for the turn in and scribes milling pigments/inks for the war scroll turn.

Thinking outside the box can let you control an offshoot of the markets while everyone else is following the pack.


Thinking outside the box allows you not just profit from the basic crafting and flipping but being prepared to profit during the off times of warfronts.

Good luck and good warfront gold hunting
