re: Knowledge Officer Updates - NPC Locator and Making GOLD

Here is another Update for those that sent me an ingame mail - I thank you for your support
and hope this will help those that are looking for all NPC's for either the Alliance or
the Horde

This link will take you to a site that I have used on many occasions to find those hard to
find NPC's

In World of Warcraft, gold is important. Without it, you're really nothing but a skill
bar and another name with no mount. You need money to buy skills, items, armor, and so
much more so read this guide to figure out how to get richer!

1 Choose Gathering Professions. These allow you to collect the materials ("mats")
that other players use to make items. The best professions to harvest these mats are
skinning, herbalism, mining and enchanting (for disenchanting). Make sure to also pick
up fishing and cooking which do not count against your two-profession limit. Maybe once
you level up your skills, drop a profession and take up blacksmithing, leatherworking,
or jewelcrafting and create some stuff!

2 Go To The Outlands. Because of the enormous costs for flying mounts, Blizzard designed
this Burning Crusade world to make you a lot more gold than you can get from Azeroth.
However, at this point it may be better to simply stay in Azeroth until you hit level 60
because Blizzard recently upgraded quest money and exp rewards in Azeroth. Once in the
Outlands, make sure to begin farming elemental motes. These are used to create primals
which are required for Burning Crusade crafting and people pay enormous sums for them on
the auction house.

3 Go buy items (mostly crafting recipes) with a limited amount from a vendor and sell
them for a higher price. Rather than spending your money on new items at the AH
(auction house), go run an instance, you will get new gear, complete quests, and save
plenty of gold.

4 Get better gear. Instead of completing every quest you can while in Outlands leveling up,
run instances to get better gear, a decent amount of money and save the quests for when
you are at level 70 when most quests instead of giving a 2 gold reward will give as much
as 12 gold per quest. This is very profitable if you have not completed quests in the
higher level zones as you can make close to 1000 gold per zone.

5 At level 80 a good way of making money is getting a character to go to wintergrasp
and farm 2x eternal earth eternal fire and eternal shadow. Then buy some saronite bars
off the auction house and get an alchemist to transmute them into titanium bars, now you
have the mats for 2x titansteel bars, these sell for 150g up. So go to dalaran and
/2 "wtb titansteel CD for mats + 20g" there you have it. Also if you can, take a miner
to farm the eternals in wintergrasp because you caan find some nice deposits there.

6 Auctioning. Get the add-on "Auctioneer" which can automatically tell you the best
price to sell anything at the auction house. Then run instances, collecting greed loot
and sell them at the auction house. You will find that things like shadowgem and
malachite can sell for up to 3 gold each for rich characters who need items quickly.

7 Level mining. Then jewlcrafting. Then Fishing. JC isnt that profitable at first, but
once you have a ton of JC cuts from doing jc dailies or prospecting titanium ore the
money just rolls in, cuttin for tips in trade or buying uncut gems from excess triumphs
or since 4.0.1 justice points, the cash just rolls in. Fishing- once you have leveled
fishing to 450, find a secluded spot in wintergrasp, and just fish away, all the fish
you get, is used for Fish Feast. Sometimes sculpin, and salmon sell for up to 70g a stack
at times. Another great way to make dough off fish is dragonfin, those almost always sell
at 50g a stack too depending on your server.

8 Sell primos - Primordial saronites. I was selling these babies when they were going for
1800g ea on my server and bought epic flying on 5 toons. Now they sell for about 400g
still a nice and easy way to make cash.


Mounts can now be bought at level 20! Effective from Patch 3.2

Sell the gray and white items you find to vendors. They are called "trash" for a reason.
They are meant to be vendored, and gray/white gear over level 15 will probably not sell
on the auction house. Over time this will make you a lot of gold. The addon "Autoprofit"
will help a lot with this by automatically vendoring all gray items in your inventory

Create an alternative character ("alt") and mail all valuable items (greens, blues,
profession materials, cloth, etc.) you find to it. Use your alt to store items (called a bank)
and to sell items on the auction house (also sometimes referred to as an "AH mule" or a
"bank character", which are especially useful when your character is far from a major city).

Invest in big bags such as Netherweave Bags. Having lots of space on your character will
greatly increase the amount you can gather (and then sell) on each trip out.

Make friends in the game and join a guild with helpful people in it! Just like real life,
social networking will mean the difference between making one gold or 1,000.

Join communities[1] and document[2] what you learn. In this way not only can you learn
from experts but also break the warcraft learning curve if you are a beginner or intermediate

SELL LOW AND SET A BUYOUT! This cannot stressed enough; always market on the trade channel
before putting it on the Auction House, and do not undercut the other auctions, as it will
start a bidding war with no winner. Use a mod like Auctioneer to auto set the price to
market standards.

Sell stackable items on the auction house one at a time or in stacks of two or three.
Often you will earn more gold by selling 20 individual items than one stack of 20 items.
Selling in smaller stacks also both reduces your overall deposit substantially AND reduces
your lost money in the event your item does not sell. But please, do not sell a large
number (like 50) of the same item one by one. Doing this undermines the price of the
item: supply has vastly increased, but demand has stayed the same, so the prices will
drop to entice buyers. It is also obnoxious. Holding onto your items for a few days may
mean the difference between 50 silver and 5 gold

There are other add-ons that can help you make gold in WoW. Auctioneer helps record
prices of what items are selling for on the Auction House, and can help you find deals
that you can buy and resell for a profit

Another add-on that is helpful for gatherers is Cartographer Routes. It plots the
shortest distance between spawnpoints of ore or herbs

Deviate Fish sell for over 1 gold if you're a fisher.

If you find a certain type of item is in demand on your server and low on supply,
don't hesitate to aggressively buy out all of that item and relist it for a profit.
You can start small with 1 or 2 specific items, and Be nice, people would rather buy
from a good person than some jerk

Do not try to scam other players, this will prevent people from buying from you later on,
and may even get you an account suspension or ban.

Respect the Trade channel and do not use channel spam to advertise your items.

NEVER use "/y" to try and sell, people find it annoying, and if you annoy someone,
they will not want to buy from you.
