I've made pretty much all my gold from ... dailies. Well, that and a little quest-clearing on the side when I feel like it. You won't go from zero to wealthy in a matter of hours or anything from questing alone, and I'd probably be able to make even more if a) I had a maxed herbalist or miner and b) I actually understood how to play the AH, but a couple hundred gold per day from 10 or so dailies isn't too bad. I rarely have to buy anything, other than arrows and pots for raiding once or twice a week, so it's a steady flow that's allowed me to save up more than enough to keep myself raid-ready and start getting my second 80 geared, gemmed, and enchanted.I could check out how much uncut gems go for, actually - I have emblems with which I have nothing left to purchase ... *makes note*tl;dr -

Well, I think this new column is going to be about more than just making enough money to cover raiding costs. As you point out, you can do that pretty easily through dailies or some farming.No, this column will be, I assume, about making enough gold to buy literally everything that catches your fancy in the game. "15k gold for a mount? No problem, I'll buy two; one red and one green." That kind of gold.

The point the author is trying to make is that your raw materials, like the raw gems you buy with emblems, are worth more if you craft those goods your gold making potential will rise. This is one reason why having fully skilled professions is so important. Who do you think are buying raw gems, herbs, ore, bar, leather, enchanting materials, stone...etc? As a herb farmer said earlier he made thousands from selling herb, but he never had the foresight to think of who buys them, if he had the why would triple his gold earning potential.

Enchanting is dead on our server, people will not pay for a scroll unless it is the same as the mats, and many people lately (far more than before when mats were MORE expensive!) will refuse to give any sort of tip.
