While
many things have changed
in the World of Warcraft over the course of the last seven years, there
are at least a few things that remain the same. One of the unchanging
features of WoW is the player’s need for gold. Gold is what
makes the entire virtual world go around and some of us go to great
lengths to get it. Gold making is the thing that is on every
player’s mind.

One of the great things about
WoW is that there are plenty of ways to make gold from farming to daily
quests there is a way to increase gold making for everyone. While any
of the common gold making methods will yield results, some tend to work
better and faster than others. A great example of this is selling items
on the Auction House or using Trade Chat. Currently one of the best
methods of gold making in game; working the Auction House or Trade Chat
can have you rolling in more gold than Scrooge McDuck in a very short
period of time.

Before you can head out to the
Auction House for a gold making frenzy you must first have a product
that others will want to spend their hard earned cash on. While raw
materials typically sell nicely, often it is the player made items that
bring in the most cold hard cash.. To aid you in your quest for gold
making dominance in WoW we have compiled the top 5 gold making WoW
recipes. Coming from
all professions, owning and creating these recipes
is sure to fill your bank coffers with gold as long as you are willing
to put in a little work to create them.

WoW players love mounts and
thanks to this adoration of the mobile in game vehicle most players are
willing to go to great lengths and spend large amounts of gold to
obtain them. Engineers have access to one of the most prestigious
mounts in game; the Mechano-Hog (Horde) and Mekgineer’s
Chopper (Alliance). Sold from a vendor in the Borean Tundra, this gold
making recipe requires Wrath of the Lich King materials that are now
fairly easy for the dedicated player to obtain. Even with the amount of
effort this WoW recipe takes to make, the profit possibilities here
make it well worth it. Selling from between 10,000 to 20,000 gold each,
the player who creates these can make a ton of gold in a relatively
short period of time.

Spellthread

Tailors have a recipe in their
arsenal that is a gold making magnet; the Spellthread. Spellthreads are
a leg enchant have been around since the beginning of the game and have
evolved as the level cap has been increased. As the best in slot leg
enchant, it goes without saying that everybody will eventually need to
invest in one of these little beauties. It doesn’t matter if
you prefer PvP or PvE you will eventually need to purchase a spell
thread. The best part of this market is that there is an almost
constant demand as each time a player gains a new pair of pants they
will also need a brand new spell thread to attach to it. This WoW
recipe requires one of the Tailor’s precious Dreamcloth so be
sure to keep each one on cool down for optimum profitability.

Belt
Buckle

Much like Spellthread this WoW
recipe, created by Blacksmiths, produces an item that almost every
player will need at least once in their stay inside World of Warcraft.
The belt buckle is an enhancement tool that permanently adds a socket
to any belt, as long as it is the correct item level of course. No
player will want to be without the added benefit of an extra gem slot
and as such these will be in demand for any player who has recently
acquired a new belt. The materials for the belt buckle are fairly easy
to obtain, especially if you have taken up mining and while there may
be some dry spells, the market for this item should never totally
vanish meaning an almost constant cash flow. For the best profit be
sure to create the highest level belt buckle possible, while it will
take more expensive and possibly harder to obtain materials, it will be
well worth it in the end. 

Flasks

From the moment World of
Warcraft released flasks have always been a huge hit on the Auction
House. Catering to the raiding crowd, the flask is created by
Alchemists and is essential for success in a raid instance. As a result
of this the market for flasks is huge as well as the potential for gold
making. Don’t think it will be an overly easy task though, as
each flasks takes 16 herbs each, as well as 8 Volatile Life. This
factor can be easily overcome by players who choose to take up the
Herbalism profession. Prices on flasks vary from server to server and
tend to fluctuate from week to week but the market never truly dies out
and there is always potential for gold making when it comes to flasks.
So break out your chemistry set and get to work to tap into the gold
mine of this WoW recipe.

Bags

Its true that everybody loves
them some baggage. Every single player has bittersweet memories of
their first experience in Azeroth with only the bare minimum of bag
space at your disposal. Due to this rather frustrating (to say the
least) experience the first thing on a new players mind is to head out
and equip themselves with some brand new bags. Usually this happens by
a serious of drops and quest rewards, but even these soon lose their
usefulness and it will be time to upgrade to something
slightly…bigger. This is where the gold making potential of
any able Tailor comes in. Able to produce a variety of bags from cloth
Tailors can easily fulfill any players bag needs. When creating bags,
remember, the bigger the bag the more it sells for so these are usually
the bags you should aim to create. However, keep in mind that the
larger the bag is the more difficult the cloth is typically to obtain.
