Sinyou's Comprehensive Classic WoW Gold Guide
Welcome to my gold guide. I originally wrote this on the Feenix forums but that went the way of the dodo bird so I rewrote it here as best as I could remember. The $$$$$ rating are based off my personal opinion and results may vary.

Herbalism is very lucrative, even more so when paired with alchemy.
The above herbs are all used in something, mostly for the potions listed in the alchemy section. Get the add-on Gatherer and don't be afraid to look up node locations on classic.wowhead.com.
Blacksmithing isn't super profitable unless you get rare recipes.
Crafted Pre-Raid BiS
Dazzling Mithril Rapier

Enchanted Thorium Helm
Enchanted Thorium Legs
Leatherworking isn't super profitable unless you get some rare recipes.

You'll need to get Finkle's Skinner off The Beast In UBRS for the +10 skinning. The most profitable leather is Black Dragonscales, Blue Dragonscales, Red Dragonscales, Green Dragonscales, Devilsaur Leather (usually camped), Core Leather, and Pristine Hide of the Beast which is very rare off The Beast in UBRS but your should basically skin any animal you come across.
Tailoring isn't very profitable at all without rare recipes, but cloth dps need it for the Bloodvine +2 crit set bonus so that's that.
Crafted Pre-Raid BiS
Belt of the Archmage
Gloves of Spell Mastery
Black Mageweave Gloves
Phoenix Pieces (w damage)
Azure Pieces (w damage)
Robe of Power
Red Mageweave Pieces (w damage)

Enchanting can be very profitable with rare raid drop recipes, but you have to stand around and spam your wares in trade chat.
You can disenchant anything at level 5 upon learning enchanting, so your bank alt should be an enchanter. Furthermore, enchanting mats cost no deposit to list on the AH, meaning you should disenchant anything that has got stats on it and has no hope of selling on the AH.
Engineering is a basically a gold sink because you have to have engineering to use almost everything except the non-combat pets but it gives you a lot of versatility. Having the stuns from explosives is great for PvP and Goblin Sapper Charges, Arcanite Dragonling, Gnomish Battle Chickens and Repair Bots are great for raids.

Fishing is very lucrative especially when paired with alchemy and cooking. Fishing maxes out at 300 but 425 is needed for no fish to get away in max level areas. It is a secondary profession so you should have it no matter what.
Stonescale Eel: $$$ Coastal, pools and open Water. Best time is 12 am-6 pm. Best Area is Bay of Storms, Azshara.
Winter Squid: $$ Only fishable Sept 23 - March 19 and fishable in coastal, open water only. Best time is 12pm-6pm and best area is Bay of Storms, Azshara.
Large Raw Mightfish: $$ Coastal, open water only, Best Area is Bay of Storms, Azshara.
Raw Nightfin Snapper: $$ Inland, pools and open water. Best Time is 12am-6am.
Firefin Snapper: $ Coastal, pools and open water.
Oily Blackmouth: $ Coastal, pools and open water.
Raw Greater Sagefish: $ Inland, pools and open water.
Deviate Fish: $ Only at Wailing Caverns.
Cooking is a secondary profession so you should have it anyways, so you might as well make some gold off of it.
First Aid is a secondary profession that you will never profit from, but you should have it anyways.
First Aid Necessities
Auction House Tycoon
Bid on everything, bid on everything some more. Did i mention to bid? You need to bid/buy low, which means you need to bid. Get the auction house add-on of your choice (Auctionator, Auctioneer, Aux) and bid bid bid/buy low and sell high.
Keep an eye out for anything underpriced or has a low bid on it. Anything used in a profession, to power level a profession, used in a quest, bags, consumables or is basically anything mentioned in this guide. You want something to be at least 30-50% below market value. Don't blindly trust your auctioneer, it records what things are listed for, not what they actually sold for. Use it as an approximation, not a fact. Those players that post an item for 1000g, 500g, 250g,100g, 50g, 25g etc when it sells for 1g is why auctioneers percentages aren't accurate. Use your head. Think to yourself, "is a guy power leveling blacksmithing really going to bother paying 50g for a shadowgem?" No he's not. BID, BID, BID and then BID some more.

The Prices of Evil Bat Eye and Glowing Scorpid Blood fluctuate based off if the Faire is available or not. People want to acquire the Orb of the Darkmoon or the Amulet of the Darkmoon which costs 1200 Darkmoon Faire Prize Ticket. It takes a mixture of 600 Evil Bat Eye, and Glowing Scorpid Blood to acquire the necessary 1200 Darkmoon Faire Prize Ticket. Buy Evil Bat Eye and Glowing Scorpid Blood when the faire isn't available and then sell them when it is.
From December 15th to January 16th a Christmas event called Winter Veil happens in-game. This event offers the opportunity to make some profit.
Stock up on Small Eggs a few months before the event begins. Their price will increase due to the seasonal quest,The Feast of Winter Veil, which requires five Gingerbread Cookies. The event also adds Egg Nog to the game. Both of these recipes require Small Eggs and are only obtainable during the Winter Veil event.
Preserved Holly itself can be sold on the auction house. If you stock up during the Winter Veil event while prices are low you can expect to make a profit when they are out of season in the spring and summer.
Winter Veil wouldn't be Winter Veil without Snow Balls, which can be found in snow piles in the Alterac Mountains by the elite Ogres, in the Arathi Highlands by the Yetis or bought off the seasonal vendors in the capital cities. This item used to knockdown their targets but were nerfed for whatever reason. They're like Heavy Leather Balls except you hit your target with a snowball instead. They go out of season at the end of the event. If you stock up on these during the event to sell later on in the off seasons you can expect to make a profit.
The Quest, You're a Mean One... rewards one of the following profession recipes that are only obtainable during the event. The recipe you get is random and may not be for your actual professions.
Schemtic: Snowmaster 9000 is a engineering item that makes 1 snowball every 24 hours. It is better to stock up on snowballs during the event than to think that 1 snowball a day is going to make you much, but people collect recipes so stocking up on a few of the recipes during the event to sell during the offseason should net you a profit.
Plans: Edge of Winter is a blacksmithing 1h axe that has a chance to do frost damage on hit. Its only real use might be as a weapon on Viscidus in aq40, but again, people collect recipes so stocking up on a few recipes during the event to sell in the offseasons should be profitable.
Formula: Enchant Weapon Winter's Might is a enchant that might be useful in phase one if you don't have access to Spell Power yet. Again, those pesky recipe collectors so stock up and sell some off recipes during the off seasons.
Recipe: Elixir of Frost Power is a raid consumable that frost mages use to increase their frost damage during Mc and Bwl raids. If you are an alchemist, make sure you get this during the event. Since this recipe has an actual valid use it's not a bad idea to buy up a lot of recipes during the event. Alchemists that want it later on will have to pay a premium for this recipe in the off seasons.
Pattern: Gloves of the Greatfather are some leatherworker gloves that could be sold to druids and shamans levelers, but beyond that, stock up on a few to sell to recipe collectors during the off seasons.
Pattern: Green Holiday Shirt is a green shirt that matches well with the Gloves of the Greatfather and a Santa hat. It's cosmetic only. Stock up on a few recipes to resell to collectors during the off seasons.
Your bank alt should already be an enchanter so he/she can disenchant for you. Get Enchantrix. It tells you an item's average disenchant value based off of your auction house scans. You should scan the auction house at least twice a day to keep the info as accurate as possible, then bid, bid, bid/buy any armor or weapons that are listed for below their average disenchant value. After you disenchant them, remember that enchanting mats have no deposit cost. You can repost enchanting mats as many times as you want without losing any gold.
Flipping Leveling Armor/Weapons
Keep it cheap, shoot to buy items for at least 50% of what the item sells for. Bid, bid, bid. You'll get most of your inventory from winning bids. Expect not to make a lot per item (5s-50s). Levelers aren't going to blow a lot on something they'll throw away in 10 levels. Make sure the stats make sense. Don't bid/buy armor or weapons with shitty stats. Leveling warriors, shamans, and paladins want strength and/or stamina (of the Bear). Hunters, rogues, and druids wants agility and/or stamina (of the Monkey). Casters want intellect and/or stamina (of the Eagle). Don't buy mail past level 35 with warrior stats because they want plate at level 40.
The Sweet Spot and Flipping Trade Goods
Everyone thinks they'll make tons of gold flipping epics for a bazillion gold when in fact, playing auction house tycoon is more about flipping thousands of items for tiny profit. The sweet spot is the price point that an item always still sells for but not being the lowest price of that particular item. There might be Linen Cloth up for as little as 80c each but it'll still sell for 1.1 silver each, all day, everyday. That's the sweet spot. You could buy all the Linen Cloth up to 1.03s each, relist it for 1.1s each and in the absolute worst case still be making 1 copper profit per linen. Of course... You're not selling 1 or 20, you're selling several hundred everyday. Auctioneer gives you a rough guess, but it's up to you to find that sweet spot for any particular item by trial and error. This works well with trade goods, ammo, or anything that goes in and out of the AH in bulk everyday.
Seller Amount Buyout / Bid Each Seller 1 3 Linen Cloth 79c / Seller 2 2 Linen Cloth 80c / Seller 3 19 Linen Cloth 85c / Seller 4 12 Linen Cloth 99c / Seller 5 3 Linen Cloth 1.05s / 50c Seller 6 2 Linen Cloth 1.11s / 70c <--Sweet Spot Seller 7 9 Linen Cloth 1.12s / 90c Seller 8 14 Linen Cloth 1.14s / 50c Seller 9 12 Linen Cloth 3.00s / 1c
- Look for a supply wall
- Bid bid bid/Buy all the linen under (6% under sweet spot) 1.05s each
- Repost it for (find the Sweet Spot) 1.11 buyout each and 1.11 bid.
Seller Amount Buyout / Bid Each You 134 Linen Cloth 1.11s / 1.11s <-- Same Sweet Spot Seller 6 2 Linen Cloth 1.11s / 70c $ Seller 7 9 Linen Cloth 1.12s / 90c $ Seller 8 14 Linen Cloth 1.14s / 50c $ Seller 9 12 Linen Cloth 3.00s / 1c $
$ = You're the highest bidder
Spent: 1g25s43c on 134 linen buyouts 134 linen sold -5% ah cut = 1g41s30c -1g25s43c = Profit: 15s 87c not counting if you won and bids.
You do this over and over and over and over with several items until it adds up to an epic mount.
Controlling the Market
Let's say a Large Glimmering Shard is selling for 90 silver and there are 10 shards up at the Auction House. To control this market, what you would do is completely buy out all of the large glimmering shards. Then, you would go back and sell them for any price you decide as you are the only supply for Large Glimmering Shards. Let's be reasonable and only sell them for 1 gold 80 silver (double). Now, you must have at least 3 - 5 items up at any given time for the price you have set. If they are not yours but are at 1 gold 80 silver ish, no problem. If someone puts them up for less or the original price, immediately buy them out. People will start to accept that the price of a Large Glimmering Shard is now 1.8g. Also, the people selling the shards will think that they have been selling at 1.8g, so they will put them up for that amount as well. Now, all you have to do is sell off all of your Large Glimmering Shards at 1.8g. You just made twice what you invested.
- STEP 1: Pick a market with a limited supply of the same item - no more than 10-20 is best.
Seller Amount Buyout / Bid Each Seller 1 1 Glimmering Shard 88s / 80s Seller 2 3 Glimmering Shard 89s / 80s Seller 3 6 Glimmering Shard 90s / 80s
- STEP 2: Buy them all out and repost 3-5 for whatever you decide. Most other sellers will think the new price (1.8g) is what they go for and post for near the same.
Seller Amount Buyout / Bid Each Seller 4 3 Glimmering Shard 80s / 80s Seller 5 1 Glimmering Shard 1.70g / 80s Seller 6 2 Glimmering Shard 1.79g / 80s You 1 Glimmering Shard 1.80g / 1.80g You 1 Glimmering Shard 1.80g / 1.80g You 1 Glimmering Shard 1.80g / 1.80g
- STEP 3: Buyout the 3 Glimmering Shards for 80s (regular price) each, the one for 1.7g (5% undercut) and bid up the 2 Large Glimmering Shards with a 80s bid (5% undercut) to force your price point to be competitive with it/or win it.
Seller Amount Buyout / Bid Each You 2 Glimmering Shard 1.78g / 1.78g Seller 7 1 Glimmering Shard 1.78g / 1.78g Seller 6 2 Glimmering Shard 1.79g / 80s $ You 1 Glimmering Shard 1.80g / 1.80g You 1 Glimmering Shard 1.80g / 1.80g You 1 Glimmering Shard 1.80g / 1.80g
$ = You're the highest bidder
- STEP 4: Keep (3-5) of your Large Glimmering Shards up around 1.8g each ish buyout and bid at all times and let the natural demand sell them.
- STEP 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 or even start over at step 1 after a few days and increase the price again if step 1 still applies.
- STEP 6: Other people will see the rise in price in that market and decide to start selling the item as well. If too many people do this, which ALWAYS happens, Once step one no longer applies (20+ items), abandon the market. Sell what you have left for more than you bought it for and move onto another market.
Vendor Recipes for Resale
Profit priority is towards the bottom for each zone.
Vendor Vanity Pets For Resale
Remember if you put these on the neutral auction house, the deposit is 75% vendor price 12hr, 150% vendor price 24hr, and 300% vendor price 48hr. That's 5x more than your faction auction house. Mark up accordingly.
Cat Carrier (Cornish Rex) – Donni Anthania, Elwynn Forest 40s
Cat Carrier (Bombay) – Donni Anthania, Elwynn Forest 40s
Cat Carrier (Orange Tabby) – Donni Anthania, Elwynn Forest 40s
Cat Carrier (Silver Tabby) – Donni Anthania, Elwynn Forest 40s
Cat Carrier (White Kitten) – Lil Timmy, Stormwind 60s, limited quantity (1)
Rabbit Crate (Snowshoe) – Yarlyn Amberstill, Dun Morogh 20s
Great Horned Owl – Shylenai, Darnassus 50s
Hawk Owl – Shylenai, Darnassus 50s

Tailoring, Alchemy, and Leatherworking all have cooldown based abilities. Alchemists can use transmutes like Essence of Undeath to Essence of Water (24hr cd) or Arcanite Bar (48hr cd). Tailors can make Mooncloth (96hr cd). Leatherworkers can make Refined Deeprock Salt (72hr cd). The minimum level a character needs to gain access to these abilities is level 35.
You could have 7 Alts, all level 35 with alchemy and either tailoring or leatherworking. After the initial gold investment to power level all the professions, you would have steady passive income from their cooldown abilities. It takes some time to recoup your investment, but after the leveling is done, it's basically passive income.
The most lucrative version of camping with your alt(s) is you park them on Black Lotus spawns. Log on, check the Black Lotus spawn points in the zone, and profit. Remember Black Lotus respawn about an hour after being picked and spawn one at a time in each of the 4 zones they can spawn in.
Next is parking your alts at rare recipe vendors to quickly check their stock. Vi'el in Winterspring comes to mind.
Don't overlap professions unless you're going for passive income or it's needed for raiding (Example: Tailoring: Bloodvine Set).
A group of players (both Horde and Alliance conspiring together) that control both the Devilsaur spawns and control the Devilsaur Leather market on the auction house. This is insanely lucrative. You'll hate these people.
Black Lotus Cartel
A group of players that camp all the Black Lotus spawns everywhere, control the Black Lotus market and by extension the flask market on the auction house. This is insanely lucrative. You'll hate these people.
Making Your Own Cartel
Basically find yourself some business partners and invest/farm together to take over markets. The larger the gold available, the bigger the market you can control. With a large enough cartel you can control any market, quadruple the prices, make a fortune and get out. Rinse, repeat, and savor those tears.
Fresh Server offer a unique opportunity. All the level 19 Twink Blues, Pre Raid BiS Epics, and Blues listed in the guide above will never be cheaper than they are in the infancy of a server. Why? Due to the influx of players leveling through content and the lack of a gold in existence, you can expect more supply and the lowest prices for first few weeks of a server's existence. Any smart investments made will pay off big in 3-6 months' time.
Auctioneer, Auctionator, Aux - Allows you to scan the auction house and adds a lot of features
Postal - makes mailing lots of stuff easier to do Enchantrix - Works with your scans to estimate an items disenchant value and modifies item tooltip to have more info
SellValue - Modifies an items tooltip to show an item's vendor value (not sure if the name is accurate)
Devilsaurs come in four forms:
Devilsaur - 54-55 Elite
Ironhide Devilsaur - 54-56 Elite
Tyrant Devilsaur - 54-55 Elite
King Mosh - 59-60 Elite
This map shows the patrol locations of Un'goro Devilsaurs:
The table below shows the spawn and window timers of the Devilsaurs.
SpawnTime: maximum time it will take for the Devilsaur to spawn
WindowTime: earliest time it will take for the Devilsaur to spawn

If you're farming Devilsaurs, use the below macro in order to tag them first (in order to compete with same-faction farmers)
This macro should work in the Legion API we are receiving.

Lockarrian’s guide to being a proper Robinson Crusoe in Un’Goro Crater
Do you already have the “Timers” AddOn?
No => Install Lockarrian’s explicit cartel version
Yes => Delete your old piece of shit and install Lockarrian’s explicit cartel version
Install Bigwigs too
They are automatic. They trigger off the text in the combat log. Like “Devilsaur dies.”
So no need to remember to set the timer in bigwigs.
OMGWTFBBQQ can’t track Mid,East,South,Mid with this poolshit
(if images too tiny check da gallery -> http://imgur.com/a/tmAP7)
No1 gives a fok m8. Except Lockarrian. Lockarrian cares. That’s why he edited the lua code for you and made this no scope -Cartel only- Timers config. Now it DOES display the location of the devilsaur.
This works from your player position. Take a look at dis map
If the Devilsaur dies in one of the red boxes AND your character is near, the timer will be set to north,east,mid,south accordingly. If it dies outside the box AND your character is near, it will be set with the coordinates of your character.
Why BigWigs then?
If you are away from a devilsaur and communicating via TS, you can manually set timers since the Timers AddOn only procs if your character is near when the Devilsaur dies.
Config timers correctly
Follow the red circles in the images
If the timers don’t delete themselves after expiration (as we configed them in the image), blame obama. You are proper cartel now.
I am going to add a dirty guild shout out. Yep, right here! You ready? Here it goes!
Blackrock Candy Co. is a mostly casual, semi hard-core raiding guild focused on clearing raid content as efficiently as possible while maintaining a fun raiding atmosphere. We aspire to build an extraordinary, camaraderie based community that mutually respects our members not just as gamers, but as people. We want the player, not the class. However, if you want world firsts or to be the top everything, everywhere, at all times, this is probably not the guild for you. That having been said, we expect to progress through content quickly. I'd be happy to invite you to our guild discord, just contact me at Sinyou#9983.
Love it. I especially love how it doesn't only give you one or two methods of gold making, i.e. "Just run a Devilsaur Mafia xD" like so many other recommendations on gold making in Classic do. Good work and hope this compendium does well throughout the game.
Amazing thank you for the work you put in to this.
This is extremely useful information! It's nice to see someone highlight all the potential gold making methods for each profession, haven't seen a guide do that as well as you did in this one.
mages won't be able to aoe farm brd in classic... in pservers dwarves were not scripted properly and wouldn't throw net... on classic this will work properly...
@Whutwat There's a video from September 2006 linked in the guide. It's highlighted in yellow, underneath the BRD Aoe farming video. I linked videos from 2006 on almost everything so you can see it was/is doable. Although it will be riskier on classic than on a private server, you will still be able to farm brd solo. Sheep the warden and solo it afterwards, heaven forbid, use some cooldowns. . .blink.
In fairness I missed all the videos that were not embedded until just now.
