is said that there is money
to be made in both the uprising and eventual fall of any civilization.
This same principle holds true in the ending and beginning of any World
of Warcraft expansion. While players are cashing in now as the light of
Cataclysm slowly fades, the same came be done when Mists of Pandaria
comes rushing in. Wondering how you can make your fortunes in Mists of
Pandaria? Wonder no more! Below you will find the top 5 money making
methods to be used at the start of any expansion and beyond!

Top 5 Ways to Make Gold in
Mists of Pandaria


Even though the very mention of
farming makes many of us shudder, it is one of the best ways to make
gold, especially at the release of a new expansion. Those with enough
gumption and get out there and get farming the new materials in Mists
of Pandaria will find themselves sitting on a potential gold mine.
Cloth, herbs, ore, leather, and even cooking materials, it
doesn’t matter what it is, everybody will be out to buy

who level their gathering professions, such as Mining and Skinning,
will be able to sell the
collected materials for large amounts of gold.

Used in the leveling of
professions as well as the creation of gear and other useful items for
leveling, the demand for crafting materials at the start of an
expansion is almost at a frenzy. Those ambitious players who get out
there first will literally be able to name their price until other
players manage to get in on the game. So be sure to get out there and
save yourself from missing out on this gold making opportunity!

Daily Quests

Much like farming, daily quests
(quests that can be completed once a day) are something that players
tend to either love or hate. However, in Mists of Pandaria, daily
quests have the potential to make us some serous gold, far more gold
than has ever been made in this fashion before. Unlike any other
expansion before it, Mists of Pandaria will lift the cap on daily
quests. This means that players can do daily quests until there fingers
cramp from the effort if they so wish and make a good profit in the
process. With literally hundreds (according to Blizzard) of daily
quests to choose from in Mists, daily quests could become a literal
gold mine that can be tapped every day without fail. Still not sure if
daily quests are for you? Remember, along with gold it is likely that
players will be able to earn valor as well, making daily quests even
more profitable in more ways than one.


If you are looking for
something a bit simpler when it comes to making gold in Mists of
Pandaria this next item on our top 5 list may be for you. One thing has
been consistent throughout every World of Warcraft expansion pack; the
need to level your character. Amazing enough, there is much gold to be
had during the leveling process. While leveling you will complete
quests, loot mobs, and run instances all of which will award your
character more than a little gold, not to mention the items pick up
that you can sell. Also, if your character happens to have a gathering
profession, leveling is the perfect time to pick up some materials to
throw on the Auction House. A new expansion is a great time for new
characters to level too. Not only do they also receive gold and items
to sell as they level, those that take the time to gather low level
crafting materials along the way will find, much like their high level
cousins, that there is an excellent market for them.

the new Pet Battle System, vanity pets will be a hot selling item in
Mists of Pandaria.

During the middle and end of an
expansion crafting really takes a turn for the worse. With that being
said, at the start of an expansion crafting all but explodes with life.
With new materials and new patterns players are ready to buy, buy, buy,
almost any decent piece of gear, potion, or enchant that will at least
temporarily aid their character. Advertise your services in trade chat
or simply place useful items on the Auction House and watch the gold
roll in. To max out your gold making potential here, be sure to max out
your crafting skills as soon as possible. Those players who can make
items first can enjoy the luxury of naming their own prices.

Vanity Pets

As we all know, in Mists of
Pandaria pets won’t be just for vanity any longer. With the
new pet battle system players can get out there and in true Pokemon
style battle their pets against other pets. This means that when the
expansion rolls around it is highly likely that vanity pets of all
types will see a surge in value. To make some easy cash players only
need to collect or craft BoE pets now, to be placed on the Auction
House once the expansion releases. Assuming that the pet battle system
will be a success, your stockpile of collected pets should sell quickly
and earn you some quick cash. After the expansion is released the pet
selling business can be continued, however, with perhaps less success.
