"I have never ever bought gold, so I have no idea how this company got my Windows Live ID."I'm sure its just automated. They've found some way to scrape Windows Live ID's somewhere, and the cost of spamming them looking for WoW players is probably not that high.What I'm surprised about is that people actually buy gold anymore. I know people who bought gold pre-TBC, as well as people who farmed gold to sell to companies like this.But post-TBC, amassing large amounts of gold is trivial. I'm pretty much a completely solo player -- I have a guild, but it's just my toons and my wife toons, and we're both fairly casual, but its still pretty easy to rack up thousands of gold without really trying these days. I usually put in about 15 hours a week in WoW, and can easily make 2500-3000 gold if all I do is farm in that time period.What's the point in buying it anymore?

"I usually put in about 15 hours a week in WoW, and can easily make 2500-3000 gold if all I do is farm in that time period."I'd love to know your farming secrets as I have no idea how I can make 200g an hour consistently... I'd love to get my epic flying skill, but 5000g is a long way off on the horizon. Any farming tips?

Daily quests. Although I think Brian's estimates are kinda high. I guess if you're really dedicated to making money, you can just farm the hell out of something that drops motes.

Any farming tips?"Unfortunately, you need the epic flying skill to make that much money consistently.What I did to get the 5,000g requires mining and helps a lot if you play a rogue.I pretty much farmed the 5,000 gold all from the ogre cave that is north of Telaar in Nagrand. The Ogres their respawn fairly quickly, have decent drops, can be pickpocketed as a rogue, and that area has about 8-10 mining nodes that spawn. At least on my server, it also is not a very highly trafficked area. My wife has an enchanter, so I disenchanted every green and blue that dropped (except a few very rare items that actually sell in the AH on my server...got a surprising number of Darkmoon Faire cards, for example, which are still pretty expensive on my server).Once I had the epic flying mount, I leveled my engineering so I could make the gear necessary to farm the gas clouds in Outland as well. Between the mining nodes and gas clouds, I can make 175-200g/hour if I don't do anything but actually farm. Typically I like to stop and gank Horde, so I spend a lot of time in PVP and end up around 125-150g/hour.Time of day also matters a lot. If I log on in the morning when I wake up, say 6 a.m. or so, I can make that 200g/hour easy because very few people are also on my server farming at that time.Obviously playing a rogue makes it a lot easier because I can sneak in and get mining nodes that other toons have to fight and kill 4-5 mobs to get to.
