Every WoW pre patch event is a pretty big deal but the one for TBC Classic is particularly important. A lot of veteran World of Warcraft players first stepped foot into Azeroth (and Outland) during the lifecycle of the original Burning Crusade expansion. Now, many of the same players are returning to once again experience the opening of the Dark Portal. Of course, this time around it’s during the WoW Classic TBC pre patch event, which launched just recently.
TBC Classic Gold is essential in The Burning Crusade Classic - you always need more gold for consumables, gear, repairs, and e.t.c. Gold farm is very slow in The Burning Crusade Classic, that’s why this service is so popular! Not to mention that the only farming class is Mage and not every Mage is able to actually farm. With that in mind, we decided to put together a little WoW Classic TBC gold making guide that should help you amass plenty of the shiny in-game currency.
WoW Burning Crusade Classic gold farming tips
Use the auction house effectively
If you're planning on making gold through the auction house, it pays to know what's in demand on your server. You might be surprised by how much this can vary and you'd do well to start small and keep an eye on your chosen market to see how it performs over time.
It's also worth considering how much effort you want to put in. Primals, for example, should sell well, but the elementals that generally drop them are likely to be heavily farmed. The time spent might not justify the gold earned.
If you're just looking to sell a few items every now and then, you don't really need to go to so much trouble. But you might also be surprised by how much gold can be made from just watching the market and buying low and reselling at a higher price, all without ever needing to learn a profession.
Running dungeons over and over again can also be a fruitful way to secure some gold in TBC Classic. Mainly, you’ll want to be burning through instances with a lot of enemies like the Slave Pens or Shadow Labyrinth, so that you can ensure you’ll get as much passive gold from enemies as possible.
On top of the passive gold that each enemy drops, you’ll be able to pick up some sellable items and gear that can add to your total income per dungeon. Rare boss drops that other players in your groups don’t want to hang on to can be sold for some decent raw gold, while bind-on-equip items can either be sold to vendors or listed on the Auction House for some extra gold.
Utilizing Professions to make gold in Outland
Just like for primal farming, you should consider that we may be surrounded by mafias and bots to camp most of the farm spots 24/7. So you may start by mining to gather for engineering and then consider farming gas clouds and drop mining in favor of Leatherworking. Mote Extraction from gas clouds is a great way to make money since this farm is reserved for engineers with the Zapthrottle Mote Extractor. You can find these clouds in every area of Outland. (Zangarmarsh provides Water Motes, Nagrand for Air, Shadowmoon for Shadow, and finally Netherstorm for Mana)
Crafting and selling gems has proven to be extremely rewarding as everyone needs them. We can predict the demand for yellow gems (related to Hit, but also Haste later on) and red ones (related to Attack Power, Agility, and Spell Power).
Transmutation cooldowns are almost always in demand, particularly because Primal Mights are used in many different (including BiS) crafts.
Fishing and Cooking are two secondary professions often easily overlooked for their money-making qualities. They provide a lot of useful PvE consumables sold at the Auction House.
Throughout Outland, each reputation has many repeatable quests, with some needing players to collect materials from mobs. Some examples are the Unidentified Plant Parts, which are found on the various plant mobs in Zangarmarsh and Coilfang Dungeons. Collecting these parts are an important part of the farming reputation for the Cenarion Expedition, which grants some prebis and the Hippogryph mount.
Furthermore, the Sporeggar reputation requires players to collect items like the Sanguine Hibiscus, which can be found on some mobs or picked up from the Underbog. Both are available at the auction house, so it’s one nice way to make some gold.
