Consistent, reasonably easy gold...DK, specced into Frost for [On A Pale Horse] with [Master Flying] does 492% mounted movement speed. Same thing with Paladins with [Crusader Aura]. Mining and Herbalism on this kind of toon means you see many more spawn points on average than any other configuration. The more nodes you visit, the more you harvest.On my server, I log in to my banker and collect my AH winnings around 5:30pm server time. I then switch to my farmer, queue for a random heroic and start farming. By the time I hit the end of my queue, I've visited between 450 and 600 spawn points and have filled at least two to three bags with ore, gems, volatiles, herbs and vendor trash.I do my run, ship off any BoE gear I won in the dungeon that hasn't already been DE'd, ship everything else off to my banker and switch to my main. End of the night, I hop back on my banker and post everything to the AH. Once a week I log on my tailor/enchanter and crush all the stuff I've been sending it. Make some bags, enchant some scrolls and ship it to my banker.All together, I spend perhaps 1hr per "work day" on making gold. I make around 8500 per week and only farm Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. And it is very consistent.

Good advice for farmers, but druids should also be considered. They don't dismount when herbing

@Basil,I've tested with my druid and I consistently get about 20% more spawn points per given amount of time on the DK. Not having to shift out of flight form "feels" likes it's faster but over the course of an hour, it is not.

This is unfortunately good advice as well as a personal rant: worgen druids are simply OP when it comes to gathering professions. In flight form they don't have to dismount to gather ore or herbs...and can't be dismounted out of flight form, and are next to impossible to interrupt. Additionally, for skinning worgen don't need a skinning knife (free bag slot) and skin faster than non-worgen. They're difficult to the point of unfair when competing for the same node/skin/herb. I really wish Blizzard would at least for ALL druids cause them to dismount when gathering, or do something to level the field of competition for those of us that don't want to level a druid purely for the awesome gathering ability./rant
