For those of you needing a short(ish) guide to racking up some more gold on your characters you should take a look at this post. It needs some editing, but, as he says, it’s kindof a “talking to himself” guide. There’s some good stuff there, well worth reading:
This is a Meta-game guide for the World of Warcraft. If you want the complete guide to making money, gain control of the Auction House, and/or compete in a true PvP test of skill and cunning, then look no further. I will take you to a new server that you know nothing about, with only one character, and show you how to build a finical empire at the cost of at least 1 hour a day. If you are further along than that, I will show you how to stabilize your market that you are in and build upon skills that you already know.
Let’s start at the very beginning. If you are farther than this, don’t worry, I’ll get to you soon. At the beginning, I am going to assume a few things about you. Firstly, you have no characters on the server. Perfect! Nothing like starting at nothing, where there are few restraints and the sky is the limit. Secondly, I assume that you have all the expansions. Thirdly, I am going to assume you have great knowledge of the lay out of the lands and have Dugi’s Leveling Guide Addons. And last, but not least, I am going to assume that all that you want to do now is to see how much money you can make and quickly.
I did a related set of posts, with new characters, starting from scratch, on a new server. The goal was 1k gold on 30 days and I hit 6,500. The current total is about 10k since I slacked off, a lot, since making those posts. In them I list everything that I bought and sold and added a few notes. Here it is, if you’re interested: 30 Days to (over) 1k Gold
