Note: Gold Drops inside instances were nerfed in patch 5.0

Solo farming Abyss Crystals in Naxxramas
Usually it's more profitable to focus on trash farming, but in Northrend it's likely you're getting more gold from bosses. Naxxramas bosses drop about 160 gold each, and there's 15 bosses. On top of that all bosses drop 2-3 pieces of epic loot. These epics disenchant into 1-2 Abyss Crystals. Currently Abyss Crystals sell for over 100g on my realm, so there's huge profit. Make sure you have enchanting!
|Some of the bosses may still|
All of the bosses are easy to solo, but there are a few exceptions. Patchwerk & Razuvious. These bosses hit like a truck still, so if you don't have good gear or have the wrong class, you will get your ass handed to you most likely. These bosses are not skippable either even though I've heard rumors you can, but without getting to loot them.
If anyone knows how to do that, leave a comment!
Trash mobs drop gold too!
I cleared most of the trash while here. All monsters often drop over 1 gold, even bats and grubs. This quickly adds to the total amount of gold you've obtained. On top of the gold, spiders also drop Iceweb Spider Silk, which is valuable on some realms.
Naxxramas floats in Dragonblight, next to Grizzly Hills.
Since there's 15 bosses and they are designed for 10 players, it will take at least a hour to clear the place. Even more most likely because the looting takes a LONG time without AOE looting.
How to enter a raid alone
While it would be faster to invite some random player, I prefer this method as you don't need to rely on anybody else. If you play during odd hours, it might be impossible to find someone you could abuse or you might even get kicked out of the instance if the other user leaves the group and you get a dc.
It's quite simple:
- Enter Battle.net account management
- Create a new trial account under the same Battle.net account
- When you login, you get to choose which WoW account you log into
- Log into your new account (wow2), create a toon and paste the following into the chat
- Open a new WoW window and login onto your main account (wow1)
- Invite your slave character into a group and convert into a raid!
- Close the other window and start raiding!
I did this run with my instance farmer Death Knight with poop dps gear and tank spec, so I was not able to get past Patchwerk or Razuvious, making the loot list lack the loot from 7 bosses. I killed most of the trash in those quarters though.
Looted the following:
- 1625 gold from bosses and greys
- 39 x Iceweb Spider Silk - 9g each
- 15 x Greenies = 56 x Infinite Dust, 8 x Cosmic Essence, 1 x Dream Shard - 718g
- 1 x BOE Epic - 150g
- 15 x Epics = 17 x Abyss Crystal - 1852g
- 167 x Frostweave Cloth - 528g
- 2 x Book of Glyph Mastery - 398g
The total sum does not include tier tokens as they can be worth 5g or 100g, depending on if it's a token for your class so you can exchange it and disenchant. Also keep in mind that it took a few days to sell all of the loot and all prices are from my realm only, so take them only as reference.
