Banking In WoW, AKA Being Muleheaded

Banker, mule, or Auction House Alt, the idea is the same. The [tag-tec]World of Warcraft[/tag-tec] has made it easy for us to make many different characters so lets take advantage of this.

The Banker/Mule/AH Alt is a character who stores, buys, and sells stuff for your toons. All of them.

Gather up some collectibles, hit the nearest mailbox, and send them all to your banker. Log into the banker at some point and post your auctions, collect your successful sales, buy stuff and ship to the appropriate other character, etc.

The major share of all your gold will stay with the banker. Partly for convenience, partly to stifle impulse spending if your main is careless with her gold.

Start Here

Roll up a toon and run to the nearest auction house, at level 1. Level it to 5 if you want to make use of skills such as disenchanting, tailoring, etc.

I like Stormwind on the Ally side, but Ironforge and The Exodar are fine. Darnassus’ AH and mailbox are too far apart and I’m lazy. 😉

Horde side I like the west AH in Slivermoon since the mailbox is about 5′ from the AH, but go where ever works for you.

Never see the Ah again

Rather, your mains won’t. Anytime they get stuff, they send it to the mule. Anytime they need stuff they send a purchase order to the mule, who then buys it, packages it, and sends it off.

One trap here is forgetting exactly what gear your main has. It might be worthwhile to send some cash from your banker to your main and have your main buy it directly. She’ll have to do that with Enchants anyway, so what the heck.

Need some extra short term storage space? You main sends the stuff that needs to be stored to the banker, who then returns it. It’ll sit in the mail box for up to 30 days and you can pick it up as needed. The mail system will hold far more stuff than your bank and it’s more convenient, it just won’t hold it forever.

About that level 5…

If you level your banker to 5 you can pick up the enchanting skill and level it to 75 if you like. You can then disenchant all those worthless low level green items you pick up.

If you grab tailoring then you can add a minor health enchant to the low level chest items you can make. This might allow you to sell those items for a bit more on the AH.

You can also make up some of the basic green items, disenchant them, and sell the parts.

So save yourself some time and effort in the future and roll that banker now.

Grinding Instances for the Loots

Spent some time today cleaning out Shadowfang keep with a partially (Gladiator) geared 70 Rogue. It was about as easy as you’d think and it was even worth a few gold.

Found some blue items (no purples,) but they were just the usual boss drops. Nothing interesting in the trash.

Arced war axe, Rugged Spaulders, Butcher’s Slicer, Haunting Blade, Girdle of the Blindwatcher, Black Wolf Bracers, Silverlaine’s Family Seal, Bloody Apron, Ferrus Hide. There were a couple of others found, but I didn’t jot them down. All Bind on Pickup and all vendored.

Each run through was good for around 12-15 miscellaneous greens, a couple of potions, a fair amount of wool cloth and a few pieces of others cloths. Not to mention all the stacks of skins, mostly light leather, but some medium and some hide.

Off hand I think those green will be worth more disenchanted into strange dust and whatnot, so that’s probably what I’ll do. I just ship them to my Auction House Alt and that one does the disenchant. By the way, there’s a subtle gold making hint there, and it isn’t the one mentioned.

Not the most productive grinding in terms of gold/hour, but it was kinda fun and earned some gold and the Guildie I took through there was quite happy (he got all the loot.) I was hoping for one of those lev 19 twink items, but it didn’t happen.

I’ll do the same for a few other instances pretty soon.

Also, if you’re 70, if you haven’t thought about doing the set of Dailies in Quel’Danis, you should. 100-150 gold for an hours work (once your routine is down) plus whatever stuff drops.

Massive WoW Gold Blueprint Launch is Coming to a Close

 Get the Gold  Comments Off on Massive WoW Gold Blueprint Launch is Coming to a Close
May 312008

If you are considering the Massive WoW Gold Blueprint then you should think about getting it now. On the 2nd of June three things will happen:

  1. The price goes up by $30
  2. The Invite to Gold Speed Run 2 goes away. That run should be starting in a couple of days. You also won’t get the detailed logs from Gold Speed Run 1.
  3. The access to the four Q&A calls goes away

It’ll still be a very worthwhile package to pick up, as it completely blows away everythng else out there, but if you grab it now then you get the discount and the extra goodies.

Most of the other guides are PDFs, which is fine, and one of those PDFs is mostly screenshots, which isn’t. The Blueprint is a series of videos which walk you through every step of setting up your gold machine.

Consisting of four modules, each covering a week, the blueprint will teach you everything you need, regardless of whether you’ve been playing WoW since beta, like my boys, or started yesterday. For example, week 1 consists of 21 videos, including three videos for installing and managing addons (you’ll find these addons make the gold game much easier.)

If you’ve looked at the videos in the previous posts then you know the quality of the videos in the guide. They’re similar, but longer and go into more detail and there’s a lot more of them.

I’ve always enjoyed the gold game and have managed to obtain quite a bit on my WoW characters and those of other MMOs that I’ve played. I’m going through this blueprint and am taking notes, because I think it’s going to make the gold game much easier and faster to play.

I think that if you follow this guide then by the time you get to 70 you’ll be buying that Epic Flying Mount (costs 6k with the training) out of petty cash. You’ll have lots left over to put these expensive enchants on your epic weapons, too. I know, the enchants are cheap, it’s the materials that are expensive.

So click through here and you’ll see what it’s all about. Then look through the previous posts to see some of the sample videos.

edit 6/1/08: I emailed Jon and I need to correct something. The fast action bonuses are going away on Monday the 2nd, probably in the evening. The price will increase, but it might not happen on Monday. So if you want access to speed runs 1 & 2, act before Mon eve. If you want the discount, you might have a few extra days. I don’t know exactly when the price will increase, but it will happen. Probably no more than a week from now.

Massive WoW Gold Blueprint, Live at Noon (PST)

May 272008

Hey all,

Let’s make some gold!

The Massive WoW Godl Blueprint, by Jon Kinens, goes live at Noon (Pacific Time) today and the Launche Period will last till the end of the day on June 1. After that  you’ll still be able to grab it, but here are three reasons not to wait:

  1. The price goes up by $30 on the 2nd.
  2. You will no longer have access to Gold Speed Run 2, or the logs from the 1st Gold Speed Run. By the way – the speed run is this: 30 days to 1000 gold (or more) with brand new characters. You get step by step detail for both.
  3. You will no longer be able to access the four live Q&A sessions that Jon will be having with the early buyers.
  4. Here’s the link, but it’s not live till noon (PST) Massive WoW Gold Blueprint

So if you wait you’ll lose out on some goodies.

Here are some FAQs about the Blueprint that Jon sent along:

  1. Is this yet another PDF e-book to download, or what?

    Answer: No! The Blueprint is a set of videos with detailed step-by-step instructions. You simply watch the videos, then do what I tell you (lol). There are more than 80 videos altogether, a little over 14 hours of entertainment, thrills (ahem), and yes… hard-hitting, surefire, Gold-making information.

    I’ve deliberately made The Massive Gold Blueprint completely different than all the other gold guides on the market, because it’s obvious that for many of you, the other gold guides *don’t work*!

  2. Can I download the videos to my own computer? Yes. But bear in mind that these are extremely high quality videos and the files are huge, several gigabytes in all. I expect most Members will watch online, and I’ve set up a high-performance video streaming system (hosted by to make sure you get fast loading, glitch-free viewing.Downloads are available in Quicktime video format (MOV files), and I’m also giving you MP3 audio files of everything, so you can listen on the move, take notes at work (hehe) etc.
  3. Do I need a Level 70 to make this work?Absolutely not. One of the cool things about the Blueprint Method is that it works without any outside help at all. In other words, you can follow the plan starting out from scratch on a new server, or even if you are just starting to play WoW. No previous experience required  🙂
  4. Is this method only useful for lowbies and noobs? Again… absolutely not. I realize this may be hard to appreciate and accept until you see the thing in action, but the fact is that even for top endgame veterans with multiple 70’s, my Blueprint method is hands down the fastest way to make Gold in the game.I’m one of those end-gamer vets myself, I have seven Level 70’s on 3 servers, and I NEVER farm or grind or do dailies for Gold anymore, it’s basically just a waste of time. Instead I spend 1 – 2 hours a day using the Blueprint technique, not even using my main  characters, and I make enough Gold every week to keep all my “big guys” happy… and then some.
  5. What’s this I hear about another Gold Speed Run?You’ve probably seen my videos about the Gold Speed Run I did a couple of months ago on a brand new server. Well, I’m doing it again, this time as a “Fast Action” bonus for owners of The Massive Gold Blueprint.Basically, I’m starting the challenge again from scratch, beginning next Tuesday (June 2). I’m going to do it on a server that YOU GUYS get to pick, and I’m even going to give all the Gold I make to one of the Speed Run II participants.PLUS – I’m doing all-new videos while I’m on the new Speed Run challenge. If you get in on this bonus, you’ll  be getting at least 6 hours more of fresh video and audio updates as the 30-day Run continues… posted to a special private area within the membership, just for Fast Action winners.

So there you have it. I really hope you’ll get the jump on the crowd, and catch the early bonuses – if you get into the Gold Speed Run II challenge, you get to race Jon and everyone else (and me) to 1,000 Gold… it’s going to be a blast!

The Massive WoW Gold Blueprint Goes Live Tuesday

 Get the Gold  Comments Off on The Massive WoW Gold Blueprint Goes Live Tuesday
May 262008

The Massive WoW Gold Blueprint is scheduled to launch at 12 noon (PST) on Tuesday, the 27th. If you need to convert that to your time, anywhere in the world, then go here.

What you need to do if you want to get in on the launch is click through and join the notification list. That way you’ll get notice as soon as this puppy goes live. While you’re at it, watch the videos (links below.)

Why hop on the launch as early as possible?

  1. You’ll get started building your gold stash before those who don’t
  2. You’ll get a pile of bonuses for buying early, including
    • Access to all the info for the Gold Speed Run 2 – this is where Jon builds new characters on a new server and earns at least 1000 gold in 30 days. No 70s to help out, no generous guilds, no sugar daddies.
    • Four Q&A sessions, only available to people who buy in early, where Jon will answer any and all questions about WoW gold and the Blueprint.
    • The logbook from Gold Speed Run #1 – with all the details on how he already did the speed run… what he bought, where he went, how he did it.
    • And there’s more
  3. You’ll save $30 over the final price. Yep, he’s going to increase the price after June 1.

So what’s in this thing? This Massive WoW Gold Blueprint?
For starters, it’s a series of modules designed to teach you how to set up your gold creation network of characters. The blueprint will walk you step by step, with videos and PDFs, through every step of setting up your gold machine.

He does recommend doing this on a non-PvP server, for the simple reason that you can have characters on both sides, Alliance and Horde. This makes it easier to do cross-faction buying and selling. If you’re on a PvP server, like all of my characters, then you can still work the blueprint, but you won’t be doing the cross-faction work unless you have two accounts.

In addition, everything is accessible to the brand new WoW player. Don’t know Stormwind from a hole in the ground? He’ll tell you everything you need to cash in on Stormwind, including how to get there from the starting area. (All the experienced Ally players now groan…)

Instead of giving advice like. “Use Auctioneer to play the Auction House…” he’ll give you a set of videos which will show you exactly, step by step, how to do that.

Never had more than a few gold to your character’s name? The Gold Blueprint will fix that. Brand new to the game and don’t know where to go? The Blueprint is for you.

No matter what level you are you’ll learn a path to getting all the gold that your characters will be able to use. The speed runs were all started with level 1 characters.

So check it out and get all the gold your characters will ever need.

Gotta Druid?

 Druids  Comments Off on Gotta Druid?
May 242008

For those of you who may be new to Druids, there are a few quests that you’ll have to go through to get access to your various forms, lions, tigers, bears, oh my.

Well, bears and big cats, anyway.

Of course, like any decent Blizzard quest the Druid shapeshift quests will take you all over the place, hunting high and low for certain items. It’s even more interesting if you’re on a PvP server, since high level n00bs like to lurk in some of the quest area and kill any lowbie they see. (That’s what Guilds are for: Revenge.)

So if you want to check out a complete walkthrough of the first couple of Druid quests, the Bear and Aquatic forms, check out these links:

  1. Druid Bear form, for Alliance and Horde
  2. Druid Aquatic Form, for Horde
  3. Druid Aquatic Form, for the Alliance

If you have any comments regarding those guides, or questions, or improvements, leave a comment on those pages.

Here’s a guide that provides you with a unique chance to learn how cutting-edge raid and PvP druids handle their character, plus tons of help on leveling, gold, and Druid specific abilities. Check it out, here: The Killer Druid Guide

May 222008

The Massive WoW Gold Blueprint is a step by step guide to putting massive amounts of World of Warcraft Gold into your account. It will come out in a few days and will include videos, PDFs, how to, why to, and where to in order to amass this gold.

And no, you don’t need to be level 70.

Do you need a copy? Enough to try to convince Jonathan Kinens that you do? Well, you have your chance. He’s announced that he’s running a contest and the winner gets a free copy of the Massive WoW Gold Blueprint. Actually, there will be two winners and each of them will get a copy. It could be you.

Here’s how it works. Click through to any of the links below and watch the videos, if you haven’t already. That way you’ll learn what the Blueprint is all about. Then click through to the blog, find the contest post, and leave a comment telling Jon just why you are the one who most deserves to win.

So why are you still here?

May 202008

One of the best tips available for earning more gold in WoW is to get the Auctioneer addon. This handy tool learns the auctionhouse, over time, and will give you valuable info on the market price of any item you come across.

You can grab Auctioneer here, documentation is available on the site. Hit the site and go to downloads. You’ll want to full suite, which combines both the classic and advanced suites.

Here’s a video which will show you how to make wow gold by using the various Auctioneer functions. Check it out.

Update 10/24: Auctioneer has officially moved to the advanced suite and the “classic suite” will no longer be supported.

The buying and selling is now done through the Appraiser interface, which takes a little bit to learn, but which is actually kind of cool.

You can either dig through the docs and forums on the Auctioneer site to learn how to use it, or you can log into your Massive WoW Gold Blueprint account, where Jon has uploaded a 45 min video on the ins and outs of the new Auctioneer. Also included with that are 45 minute videos on the Inscription profession and the buying and selling of herbs for massive gold.

If you don’t have a Blueprint account you can check that product out, here. It’s wildly different from all the other gold guides out there: The Massive WoW Gold Blueprint Review

edit 6/26: Keep in mind that as Blizzard updates WoW it also updates the programming code used to build our addons. This is what results in addon breakage and the need to update our addons. So if Auctioneer isn’t working (see comment) upgrade to the latest version.

Well, actually it’s the whistles…

Video #3 from the Massive WoW Gold Blueprint gives you another technique to make a nice sum of cash, even if you’re level one. You do have to have access to the Horde though, so if you’re alliance on a PvP server you won’t be able to do this.
