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.
