I am herbalist/alchemist (transmuter). I rarely go herb farming unless everybody else is raiding. So basically I make gold with selling off excess herbs, fishing+cooking, disenchanting, a bit of AH-luck now and then, transmuting cheap primals/essences into more expensive things (undeath->water->air, earth->water->air).Mote farming:* earth = AH* life = herbalist* water = fishing/transmute* air = transmute* mana = Netherstorm/Herbs* fire = I hate farming fire ...* shadow = who needs shadow anyway?Other things I sell: * I love selling vendor recipes on the AH ... it is not a lot you can make with that but a lot of small amounts add up over time. * Leather of all levels still sells pretty good (I just found out that thick armor kits more than make up for the costs skills/equip of the alt that crafts them)* anything needed for crafting "twink" items. * Potions/Elixirs, haven't sold any for quite some time, but used to be pretty profitable before the 2.1 announcement ... have no idea whether that already changed since I have my mount now and am hoarding mats for the new improved "discoveries"* cooked fish/food* essences/primals* enchanting mats* herbs* faction items I don't need* twink items I don't need (rarely)* anything that's not gray ... The trick is not finding stuff to sell ... just play. The trick is when to sell for what amount and sometimes what stacksize and keeping an Alt on the AH at all times and doing regular AH business. If you don't sell a lot of things you will not make a lot of money and if you won't stay at it you will never learn the prices and which items really do sell on your realm. My advice is to only start speculating when you have bought or sold some of the item in question and know there is a market. Stay away from epics and even blues ... you need to invest too much of your budget with too great a risk. Spread your "portfolio" prices go up and down all the time. Wait for the right moment to sell those primals ... and stick to the leather market while it's good. Check patch notes and get to the sweet stuff ahead of the patch. Hoard up on "Ancient Lichen" now since it will be need in stacks of 10 in 2.1 for the druid epic flight form quest. (unless they changed that *g*)Know quests and recipes ... always sell the right stack size. People are more likely to buy 4 slightly overpriced fel iron bars for the key quest for Shattered Halls then 10 cheap ones that still cost more in sum than the stack of 4. So just my 2c to the fun game of getting more gold than most others in your guild and impressing them with your knowledge of the worth of every item that drops ... and you don't even need Auctioneer to do it ;)
