- Hacked accounts
- Botting/3rd party programs
- Farming 24/7
Because this gold making guide focuses on methods that do not get you banned and can be done solo, I will have to see if good amounts of gold can be made without breaking any rules, but still taking advantage of their knowledge.
Hacking? Nay. Botting? Nay. Farming? Yay!
Like noted in the first part, I've noticed many gold sellers like to spend their time farming Tempest Keep: Botanica (Normal).
But why Botanica and not Mechanar for example?
I've farmed them both a while now and the only difference in the loot is the herbs obtained from Botanica. (And less valuable Fel Armaments from Mechanar) Outland herbs are extremely valuable when compared to other herbs, so Botanica seems to be extremely profitable for all herbalists. Botanica is also a bit more linear and seems to take a little less time to clear it, but personally I run into the instance cap everytime in both of them, so at least for me it does not matter.
There are 9 herb spawn points and they can be anything from between Felweed and Netherbloom. One herb node can contain up to 8 herbs with the guild perk, so there's a lot of potential here, seeing Netherbloom stacks going for 250g currently on my first realm and 170g on second. However, there's an easier way to farm Netherbloom and I will post about it later on.
A run takes less than 10 minutes and in that time I kill everything that moves and pick up all herbs that I find. Some people ignore trash mobs and focus on bosses, which is not a very good deal in a instance like Botanica.
Meowth wrote an excellent tip on how to make even more gold while in Botanica!
- Put the instance on Heroic mode.
- Run towards the last boss and exit.
- Aggro all trash mobs on the way.
- Ignore all bosses.
- Exit the instance, reset and repeat.
Here's the valuable items you can expect to find while in Botanica!
- Netherweave Cloth
- Arcane Dust (Enchanting)
- Greater Planar Essences (Enchanting)
- Outland herbs (Herbalism)
- Arcane Tomes
- Sunfury Signets
- Extremely valuable BOE recipes
Nearest repair/vendor: Cosmowrench, small goblin outpost just outside the instance.
So how much gold was found?
There's really no point in giving estimates, as RNG plays a big part on what you will find. But a typical 10 minute run nets you about 300-600g guaranteed if you have herbalism and outland herbs are valuable on your realm. Enchanting and Tailoring is also needed but not on the same toon. If you find something more valuable, like a recipe, you can add a zero to the sum! :)
However, in some cases even 1500g per run is possible, without any rare drops. For example, I have sold a load of Arcane Tomes 100g each and Sunfury Signets 5g each, not to mention the high price on end game TBC herbs!
