How To Make Gold in WoW Cataclysm

The Cataclysm expansion has brought us a lot of new ways of making gold. Millions of players are rushing to level 85 and most of these people will need items both when they hit 85 and when they are leveling. Gold making is a bit different now, in the past expansion the competitions wasn’t that high, but people have opened their eyes on the gold making aspect of the game, this can be both good and bad for you, most of the time bad.

Most of the people that used to get their gold from farming are now facing huge competition, the Cataclysm expansion has made gold a more important part of the game and most people are just looking up some random gold farming tip and get told to farm at the same identify where everyone else is farming. This will cause these areas to be crowded with people looking to make some easy gold. When loads of people farm a specific mob, the items which that mob drops will fall in price as a rock. So you’ll basically compete with 10 other people for an item that won’t sell for more than a level 10 green, if this is what you’re doing then you might in addition farm the Dead Mines.

If you want to make some real gold in Cataclysm then you need to use the Auction House. More and more people are now buying most of their items on the auction house, back in the past expansions people used to try to find the items they needed in the trade chat but now they’re just going to the auction house and buying the first item that they see. This method that most of the gold business in World of Warcraft has transferred from the Trade Chat to the Auction House, and that’s why you need to use it.

The Auction House is fairly simple, you should get the add-on auctioneer in order to make the most out of it. With the auctioneer add-on you’ll be able to post items faster and see the average price of items, so that you know if you should buy it or not.

You should look for items attained from the gathering professions by the Auction House, most people that are farming tend to just dump their items at the Auction House for around 20-30% below the next cheapest item, so you’ll be able to make a huge profit if you manage to snatch these items.
