You've probably seen
ads on the Internet for World of Warcraft guides that promise
you can make thousands in gold every day with their “secret” tricks.
You've probably also seen ads on TV that promise you can make
millions of dollars in your spare time through “secret” real
estate tricks. Neither of those promises is true.
Sure, there are rare occasions when a person could buy real
estate at government auctions at greatly reduced prices,
then sell the property for a tidy profit.
And there are times when you could buy bargains on the WoW Auction House
and resell those items for a chunk of gold. But do you
really think the people who
advertise those phony schemes are the first to discover these tricks?
Think about it. Millions of people play
World of Warcraft all over the world. AddOns have been created
for the game that are specifically designed to watch
the Auction House. Every minute of every day
on every server there are thousands of players
who are searching the AH for deals. You simply cannot start a
1 character, dash to the AH and start making thousands of gold
within a few hours. The people who make that claim - and want you to
buy their guide for $40 or $50 or more - are lying.
There's No Secret
My name is Jarvis Hooten.
My main character's name is Zena. Zena's Pro Gold WoW Guide tells
the truth about
making gold in World of Warcraft,
of other tips about the game. You'll find valuable tips on Battlegrounds, Questing, Raiding, AddOns and extensive, easy to understand pointers on Professions.
The main focus of Zena's guide is gold making. That remains the hardest part of the game to master and there is very little reliable help on gold making offered by the many other guides and web sites. The truth is there are no “secret” tricks
for making gold in WoW. There are techniques and methods for making gold,
but no secret tricks. Period.
Hmmm, if I don't have any secret tricks for making gold, then why should
someone buy my guide? Because learning the techniques and methods for making
time--a lot of time. I've done the research for you, so my guide will save
you many hours of trial and error. Having my guide is like having a rope that shows you the way through a maze. Without it, you'll waste a lot of time running into dead ends.
1. Quest rewards are obvious. Everyone
gets those. At maximum level you get more gold in quest rewards
instead of Experience points. I know players who
gold they needed to get their epic flying mounts just by doing
daily quests at level 70, back when 70 was maximum level.
It took them weeks and weeks
quests over and over. Now maximum level is 90. Good grief,
do you really want to wait till 90 to get your epic flyer?
fly past level 80 players
who are still
on slow flyers and wonder how they can stand it. But if you're
okay with that, hey, it's your fifteen bucks a month, right?
If you're satisfied with
gold through quest rewards, then you don't need my guide.
2. Coin drops from mobs: Most mobs only
drop small amounts of coins. You don't get rich just by killing
coins they drop.
Or do you? Chinese gold farmers made
famous by grinding mobs in certain areas just for the high
coin drops. I'll show you where those areas are so
you can try it for yourself.
3. Selling items to vendors: In the "old
(Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms), most of the so called "vendor
trash" items really
are trash. Those gray items sell to vendors for such low
prices they're almost
up. Blizzard changed this in Outlands, Northrend and Cataclysm
zones. Vendors are happy to pay a lot
for junk items you pick up in the expansion zones. This
is not how you get rich, but it is one of your sources
4. Charging Fees: Enchanters can charge a fee to Enchant another player's gear. Lock pickers can expect tips for opening lock boxes. High level players can charge low level players for runs through instances. These are the three most common services for which players can charge fees. There are others, such as a mage providing a portal or a Warlock summoning a character for a fee, JewelCrafters cutting gems for fees and so on. Charging a fee for your service is a nice way to make a little bonus gold, but it's not the way to get rich.
5. Selling items on the Auction House:
The Auction House is where the money is. This is free enterprise
Of course, to
make gold from the AH you have to
to sell. That's obvious, right? And to make big gold
from the AH you have to have valuable items to sell that
players really want to buy. Where
get these precious items that other players will gladly
pay high prices for?
How do I get rich from the AH?
are four ways to get items to sell at the Auction House,
and here they are:
1. Killing mobs for
2. Collecting items with Gathering Professions
3. Making items with Crafting Professions
4. Buy low, sell high items from vendors or the AH
1. Killing mobs for items drops is pretty
obvious and fundamental, although most of the mobs you kill
do not drop items that
will sell on AH. Yes, there
very rare Bind On Equip items that we all get now
and then if we kill enough mobs. And yes, you could go out
humanoids for hours and hours to
collect cloth to sell on AH. (My guide will explain
how foolish THAT is!) There are,
however, specific items dropped by specific mob
types that are worth the grind. I'll explain what those items
they are valuable and show
2. Collecting items with Gathering Professions:
Using Gathering Professions to gather materials is also an
to sell on AH.
I've seen guides that say
your character's Primary
Professions should both be Gathering Professions to
make gold. They are wrong. Sure, you can make gold by gathering
herbs and leathers and selling
on AH, but haven't you ever wondered about who's
buying those materials? Crafters buy those mats and turn
them into items
they can sell for five times
mats cost! Still, it's your game; play it your
way. If you're satisfied with making gold by gathering and
and selling for hours on
end, then you don't need my guide to tell you
how to do that. Besides, players like
me need gatherers to provide us materials. Thanks,
gatherers, for all your hard work. Crafters are getting rich
the materials you gather!
3. Making items with Crafting Professions:
Crafting is where the big money is, folks. Crafting is also
discouraged or confused.
through Professions. The game is
that way. It's the main reason Professions
exist. But the Crafting Professions are also the
hardest part of the game to learn and use effectively.
I'll show you how to make
sing and dance for you.
4. Buying items from
vendors or the AH: Yes, I include playing the Auction House
because there are buy
if you know what to
look for. There are guides that claim
be making thousands of gold within hours
of creating a level 1 character simply by playing
the AH. That is a flat out
lie. I'll give you an explanation
to use the AH that is true and thorough,
yet easy to understand. You'll get to read about it,
see pictures of it and even
watch videos on how to make gold
Auction House, and everything in my guides
and videos is honest and legitimate.
I tell you straight up that not every
technique in my guide is going to work
on every server. That's the beauty of
WoW. Each realm truly is a world of its own.
My guide offers so many useful techniques,
though, that you're certain
discover ways that do work--and work
very well--to make gold for you and make your entire gaming
experience more fun.
$ Okay, how much is it? $
I won't try to gouge you with the price of my guide and I won't
hide the price till you go to the purchase page (as some guide
sellers do). I'll tell you right up front it's $4.95. That's discounted from the original price of $19.95. What do
you get for less than five bucks? More than you get from other guides that
sell for ten times as much, that's for sure!
For $4.95 you will be given access
to a download page. On that page you will get Zena's Pro
Gold WoW Guide; a PDF book formatted for wide, full screen viewing. The layout is gorgeous, if I do say so myself, with over a hundred pages
to understand tips
and techniques, not just for making gold but also for getting the most
out of the game. The guide is loaded with pictures and graphics. You'll learn about Battlegrounds, Dungeons, Quests and grinding techniques.
In particular, you will learn
one basic strategy for using Crafting Professions that will likely
change the way you play the game forever.
You also get videos, lots of
videos. I usually play WoW on a Mac. Non Mac users may not
know this, but the game comes
with a video
that only works on Macintosh computers. There are third party applications
you can get that will do video capture, of course, but when it's
integrated into the game the image quality is remarkable. You
will be able to expand
the videos to full screen so they will look exactly as the game
looks on your screen.
You will watch as if you were playing my character yourself as
we go to specific places and do specific things that you
your own character. You can pause, go back, skip ahead and re-watch
anything as much as you like.

What makes me an authority on World of Warcraft?
I'll tell you
right now I do not claim to be an authority on the game. I'm
not a WoW
freak who plays
15 to 20 hours a day. (How do those people make a living, anyway?)
I have a job, family, friends, you know--a life. I'm what I
would call a WoW “Hobbyist,” which
means I do play the game a lot, but not so much that it takes
over my life.
Early on I discovered a knack for making gold in WoW. Other players
in my guild were complaining that they couldn't afford their mounts
I had plenty
of gold for mounts. I could easily afford my first mount at 40,
the earliest level you could get a mount at the time. At 60 I
hopped straight onto
an epic ground mount while most players end up having to wait
till level 63 or even
65 before they can afford that faster mount. At 70 I already
had plenty gold for a flyer and within just a few days I moved
up to an epic flyer. At the time, that was a real accomplishment!
That was on my main character. My alternates
had it even easier. I have several alternate characters,
as many of us in WoW do.
All my Alts have all the flying skills in the game. To get all five flying skills on one character costs 11,000 gold. Do you have enough gold to get all flying skills ... for five characters?
I also discovered that I was having a much easier time with my
Professions than other players. This was especially true of Enchanting.
everyone complains about the cost of materials to build up
Enchanting; not just players
I know or talk to in the game, but players who post comments
to forums. Everyone seems to think it's hugely expensive to have
an Enchanter character.
it to be just the opposite. Being an Enchanter didn't cost
me a lot of gold; it made me a lot of gold!
What was I doing
so differently from other players? Well,
if I do have one “secret” technique
to share, this is it, and it is explained in my guide. I
don't think of it as a secret at all.
Honestly, I can't believe every
hasn't thought of
it. Obviously most players have not thought of this method,
though, and that's why I decided to write a guide about it.
is simple and straight forward

How I really learned the game
In 2007 I
was unfairly fired from a high profile job with a major casino
(I live in Reno.) It was
so unfair and so ugly that
a law suit and
reported the corporation
to appropriate Nevada state agencies. No one at the wretched
casino corporation had the guts to tell the truth about what happened,
so I was unable to
prove my case. Those cowards all wanted to keep their cushy
jobs, of course. (That's funny to me now because since then three
of the scum bags have themselves been fired!)
During that time WoW became my escape.
I qualified for unemployment benefits—more
proof that I was unjustly fired—so I was able to keep
the bills paid while I applied for jobs. I found myself with
a bit of
time on my hands
and WoW was a wonderful way to take my mind off my troubles.
For almost a year I played WoW over twelve hours a day.
into one of
those WoW freaks!
I became a fierce Battleground player, a weekly Karazhan raider
and an adventurous explorer of all things WoW.
It's important to note that I did not change
my method or spend a lot of extra time on making gold during
that time. You don't have to play the game
12 or more
hours a day to get rich in WoW. For those several months
I really got into PvP Battlegrounds, which do not make gold.
In fact, doing Battlegrounds and raids costs your character
gold. Good thing I had a strong gold making method or my
characters would have always been broke!
It doesn't take 50 or more hours a week of play time to make
plenty of gold. However, playing that much did allow me to indulge
deeply in the
that made me much more prepared to write about it. I've had
time to go all over the continents of Azeroth, to check out every
explore every pocket of mobs. I'm a curious, adventurous kind
of person anyway, so it's in my nature to get off the beaten path
and see what
I find. My guide
explains interesting places you may not have had time to investigate
and shows you great grinding spots you may not have had time
