Thanks for these tips, I really have a hard time making money in WoW, typically grinding dailies for a while, then when I stop I make 0 gold, except for raid boss kills. I haven't made a cent outside raiding about 3 or 4 months for example, been living off the same 2K gold lol. I seem to only make money by crafting one big expensive item, not a good method.It just seems like to really turn a profit I have to farm everything and that takes all day, I work in real life and log in to raid, then end. So hopefully selling my drums or food on Tuesday/Sat will pay off, of course, I need that food for myself also and always feel bad about selling it lol.

i guess you just need to be more efficient with your farming. Usually a drop, be it meat, fish, ore, herbs, crystalizeds / eternals, or whatever has a sweet spot in the game to farm it. You just need to learn where it is.Set aside more time to farm that item than you need, or set out an amount of that item that you need for yourself, and then farm another stack or two for AH. a stack of 20 Glacial Salmon on my server goes for 80g a stack, 2-3 times more than musselback sculpin and nettlefish. So farm another 40 glacial salmon which will take you 10mins, and you've just made a cool 160g.

I think part of it is just holding on to anything that sells, and selling it. This is where having a bank toon is so handy. Get a couple frostweave from that dungeon? Send it to your bank toon. When your bank toon has a stack, throw it up on the AH. Cloth, health/mana potions, well itemized greens, extra enchanting mats, white tradeskill items...almost all of these will sell-and they don't have to be lvl 80 endgame stuff. I find the lower level stuff often sells for proportionally higher prices.

a good point sam. It's even worth noting what stack sizes of things sell well. For those of us with auctioneer we can see what percentage of the normal price any stack size is. For everyone else it's too much time to do the math, so people will either buy full stacks for most gather mats, or not at all.with glyphs it makes sense to only sell in stack sizes of 1. I find leather working armour kits sell well in stack sizes of 1, 2 or 3 - since they can be applied to more than one type of armour. scrolls seem to sell relatively well in any stack size. know the market.re: bank alts. I only learnt today that faction auction houses have flat deposit and cuts, no matter what your faction standing is. I always assumed you needed exalted, and thusly never bothered using bank alts. My money making, i think, is just starting to turn a profit, having just levelled leather working, and inscription on alts. Once i make a few K more i'll definitely invest in a guild, guild bank, and give up control of the bank tab i bought in my main's bank. ;-)
