I need gold, and gold making is boring, hence - diversify.I have 4 lev 80 (and lower level alts) - I do cooking/fishing quests on 2 because I need the foods for raiding - and sell extras.I try joining Wintegrasp in turns with all characters, use shards for honor - use honor for epic gems.My main (priest) and warlock have tailoring (mooncloth/ebonweave) - I use all my cloth cooldowns, craft gear for my alts - sell extras.My druid alt has alchemy and herbalism: I quickly herb in Wintergrasp after we win fights, craft flasks and elixirs for all my toons , sell extras.My hunter has skinning / leatherworking, craft stuff for druid and hunter, sell arctic furs and leg enchants.Warlock has mining, I send blue gems eternals to druid for transmuting - use eternals for cloths, epic gems.Main has enchanting, I don't think I ever made a cent from that - only a service for myself and guildies (grateful that I can get a bunch of scrolls now and enchant my own alts nowadays).It's actually like running an assembly chain, first 2 characters did Hodir's dailies, getting 100 gold in 40 minutes and selling/using drops + gathering rep items for leveling alts.Basically, I never spend more than 20 minutes "grinding" for money: I do fishing/cooking quests or herb while waiting for daily random heroic, and every time I go over 5000 gold I buy something nice for one of my toons. I try not going under 1500 gold, and max money I've had was 14000 in BC (I wasn't raiding in that period, money would accumulate and not get spent).But I've used my alts' primordial saronites for leggings of woven death already, and every time money gets low I craft a bunch of elixirs or sell a stack of cloth and I'm back to a reasonable amount of gold that I can spend to improve some of my characters.
