The difficulty level of earning Gold back in Vanilla days of WoW is shrouded in legends. Tales of players farming for a month straight just to earn enough currency to afford a single epic mount can be heard on guild voice chats to this very day. Many have anticipated the return of this money-struggle with the introduction of Classic. Luckily for us, 15 years of min-maxing, analysis, and MMO gameplay in general, have uncovered the best ways of making WOW Classic Gold without the need for the mindless slaughter of random mobs (considered farming is, however, still a good option - you just have to know where and whom to farm...). Thanks to this knowledge, players are now able to make money much, much faster than in vanilla days, which has a side effect of rapidly growing inflation... This means that prices are higher in Classic than they were in Vanilla, and the demand for proven currency-making methods is considerable. That is why we have decided to share the moneymaking knowledge that we have accumulated by publishing this up-to-date WoW Classic Gold making article.
One of the best ways to make gold is to take up professions very early in the game, basically as soon as they are available. Gathering professions in particular are the best for making money. You'll want to pick two from Mining, Herbalism, and Skinning. Pick whichever you think will mesh the best with what profession you might want to do when you are level 60. Mining goes with Blacksmithing, Herbalism goes with Alchemy, and Skinning goes with Leatherworking.
You should do these while you level up, because your ability to obtain the resources is bound by your skill level in the particular gathering profession. In normal World of Warcraft, you can gather whatever you want and still gain skill points and obtain materials. In WoW Classic, you have to be a certain skill level to gather the resource.
As the most relaxing-to-use (or the most boring, depending on how you look at it) profession by far, Fishing allows players to make some easy WoW Classic Gold without the need for gear, level (in most cases), or active farming. This is why many players like to retreat to their favorite fishing spot and just click on the cork from time to time.
The best thing about Fishing in Classic is the fact that many sought-after crafting reagents come exclusively from the seas and rivers of Azeroth. Here are some of the most profitable fish, together with the places where you cand catch them:
Raw Nightfin Snapper - Used in Cooking as the main ingredient for the well-known Nightfin Soup. This fish can be caught only during the Server's nighttime in Moonglade, Un'Goro Crater, Felwood, Feralas, Western Plaguelands, Azshara, Winterspring, Eastern Plaguelands, and other High-level zones, including Raids and Dungeons that feature pools of water. The fact that this fish inhabits only high-level zones means that catching it at low levels might be quite tricky (Druids have it easier thanks to their Teleport: Moonglade).
Stonescale Eel - Alchemy Ingredient used to craft Stoneskin Oil that is, in turn, required for various high-end Alchemy Recipes. Stonescale Eel Swarms can be found along the Western coast of the Stranglethorn Vale and on the northern part of the coast of Tanaris. This fish can also be found in the Bay of Storms, in eastern Azshara, and on the central part of the Feralas's coast.
Deviate Fish - The favorite food of all twinks. This fish is used in the Savory Deviate Delight Recipe and can turn you into a Ninja or a Pirate (at random) when eaten after cooking or provide you with a random buff/debuff when eaten raw. It can only be caught in The Barrens: underground, inside Wailing Caverns and in small pools of water on the surface. The fact that The Barrens is the Horde territory results in Deviate Fish's price disparity between WoW's two factions; it is more lucrative to farm this fish when you are on the Alliance side.
Oily Blackmouth - The main ingredient of Blackmouth Oil, that is required for some of the most popular potions and elixirs (including Free Action Potion and Sweem Speed Potion). Schools of this fish can be found on the coasts of multiple low-level zones: The Barrens, Loch Modan, Darkshore, Silverpine Forest, and Westfall. On top of that, Oily Blackmouth inhabits high-level zones, such as Western Plaguelands, Azshara, Felwood, and Feralas.
Buy Low & Sell High on the Auction House
This has been the most common strategy to farm gold over the lifespan of World of Warcraft. This can be a long term strategy, however, so if you need gold right away, then you might want to consider some of the other options.
What you want to do is gather up enough gold to purchase both the Shadowfang and Assassin's Blade from the Auction House. These will be flooding the market because of how many people will be playing the game in the early stages of the launch. You can then, hopefully, sell those in a couple of months when the surplus of items has gone down and the demand has gone up. This should net you a pretty tidy profit, but again this is a more long term play.
To go further with this, you can use a couple of addons for the Auction House. Both Auctioneer and Aux will help you figure out what you can purchase that's below market value, and will give you a chance to sell them for a higher price!
