If memory serves, all of the starter DK blues will only net you a silver or two.

Yeah, all of the Death Knight blue's only fetch a few silver or copper. That poor fellow would surely be wasting his time.

Actually, I think they're only worth a few copper. I could be wrong though.

DK starting blues sell for 10c.The DK blacksmith even makes a comment about it.

The blues may be worthless, but my DK had about 25g from quest rewards and vendor trash by the time he completed the starter quests. Was handy when starting off on a new server. I created the DK to quickly level up and join friends, but with all that gold, I sent some off to a lowbie alt in a class I actually want to play at 80.

It's still not worth the time. The question was about selling the starter gear, which is clearly a waste of time since it all sells for a few coppers.Even if you do the whole questline to break away from the Scourge (one of my favorite questlines in the game so far), which does make you a few gold, you've still taken way more time than it would take you to do a couple of dailies and get a good bit more money.Just go do some Argent Tournament dailies. Get some gold and some rep as well as tokens toward some pretty nice rewards. You can get gear, pets, mounts and titles. Don't waste your time trying to exploit something that Blizzard clearly thought through.

Everytime I decide to try out a new server, I start a new DK, go through all of the opening quests (which IMO is the ONLY fun part about the DK in its entirety) then become the scary naked DK banker. Then my alts have a nice 20-25g cushion in which to start on, plus a banker all ready and able to start auctioning...

Friday,Yes, but the guy above you is talking about getting starter gold for an alt on a new server. If you're starting on a new server...who are you going to do dailies with? You can, however, make a quick DK on that server and have a free 25 gold for your new level 1 priest, which will actually help him with early leveling quite a bit...

As has been observed, this depends on your definition of "reasonable amount of cash." I've used the disposable DK strategy for financing a new alt on a new server before, and it's certainly better than nothing. The starting quest chain takes probably about two hours from start to finish, and you end up with about 25-35g from quests and drops. (Like people have said, the gear itself vendors for a trivial amount.) Can you make more money in two hours on an 80? Yes. Can you make more money in two hours on a brand new Level 1 alt? Hell no.
