If you haven’t found out for yourself by now where to farm gold in WotLK, maybe this article will enlighten you at least a little bit. In this report, I will give you a few farming ideas, depending on the professions you have. So, here’s what you need to know.
Where to farm gold in WotLK as a miner
The best zone for miners in WotLK is without a doubt Icecrown. The rocky edges of this zone are full of Saronite Deposits and after mining in all the zones of the game, I can say that this zone is the best for Titanium Ore as well. Of course, to be effective as a miner in this zone, at least a flying mount is required.
Where to farm gold in WotLK as a herbalist
Sholazar Basin is definitely the best area for herbalists. Due to the high accessibility of this zone, you don’t even need a flying mount for this area. There are plenty of herbs in this green zone, but the one you should be looking for in particular is the Adder’s Tongue. This herb only grows here, and that’s why it’s a bit more valuable than the other common herbs in WotLK.
Where to farm gold in WotLK as an engineer
Thre are two ways to farm gold with engineering. The first one is via Zapthrottle Mote Extractor. With this tool you can extract Crystallized elements from Arctic and Cinder Clouds in the game. There are plenty of clouds in Sholazar Basin.
Also, since WotLK was released,engineering can be used as skinning, but only on mechanical mobs in the game. Best places to find mechanicals are Borean Tundra and northwestern Storm Peaks. By salvaging the remains of mechanical units in the game, you can get many valuable engineering parts, like Froststeel Tubes, Volatile Blasting Triggers etc.
An important tip for those players that want to rise engineering on their characters, as an engineer you can use a mechanical NPC in Dalaran as an auctioneer. In other words, engineers are the only ones that can access the World of Warcraft Auction House from Dalaran.
Of course, no matter if you’re gathering or grinding on mobs for their loot, you still need to involve the Auction House in the game to make money. So, for the players that are too lazy to level up their professions, Auction House trading is a viable solution. Therefore, a good answer to the question “where to farm gold in WotLK?” regardless of what class, professions, trade skills, gear or talent build, the best place is the Auction House.
