How Can I Afford WOTLK Classic Raid Without Farming Any Gold And GDKPs?

Every WOTLK Classic player will feel very painful when facing this GDKP scene and WoW Token that destroys the server economy. Because the server economy has increased the value of consumables, gems and enchants. But if you don’t take part in these practices at all, you’ll have a hard time affording raids.

Fortunately, here I will tell you how to get out of this dilemma. You don’t have to join GDKP or get WoW Token to play the game. And you don’t have to farm WOTLK Classic Gold either. You just have to be smart about how to maximize your Gold earnings while playing the game.

WOTLK Classic: How Do I Afford Raiding Without Farming Gold and GDKPs?

Convert Currency To Gold

As we all know, one of the easiest ways to earn Gold in the game is to exchange Currency for Gold. There is also a lesser known way to convert Stone Keeper’s Shard to Wintergrasp Mark of Honor. Then convert them into Honor Points.

Honor Points will then apparently turn into gems at Orgrimmar or Stormwind PVP vendors. You just have to remember to check the value of the gems and you can take the most valuable gems. Remember that sometimes cheaper gemstones are actually worth more. Because when you don’t need Emblem of Triumph anymore, they cost fewer Honor Points.

You can also use it to acquire Crusader Orbs. We can also convert Sidereal Essence into Crusader Orbs, so you can actually earn WOTLK Classic Gold for free with it. If you’re on a capable team, you can even earn 500 to 1000 Gold per hour. In the process, you simply farm all Heroic Beta Dungeons. Obviously, this depends on the skill of the players in the team.

We should note that the server price of Emblem of Conquest converts to 18 Runed Orbs. Now what you have to do is check this against the price of the raw gems you can get with Emblem of Heroism. An easy way to do this is to divide the total coin value by the number of Emblems required.

Check Runed Orb Prices

I think many people just grab gems blindly. But their prices are clearly dropping relative to Runed Orb. And I feel like the value of Runed Orb has increased slightly recently. This is only on my server, so it’s important to check the price of a Runed Orb. Because it is a wide range of gemstones.

A straightforward way to do this is to have Alternator Add-Ons do a quick scan of it. Whenever you hover over items involving Add-Ons, it will display the price.

Craft Raw Gems

If you have a craft, you can cut it into more valuable gems. This way you can make more Gold with raw gems. But you’ll never be able to get all the recipes through Titanium Powder Quest. Because you don’t have to do it every day. You just give Titanium Powder, which you can trade in your Auction House, and then proceed to turn it in for WoW Tokens. This way you can get the recipe you want.

Obviously, this will cost you WOTLK Classic Gold. But in the long run, it’s well worth the investment because you’ll earn more Gold with it.

My personal suggestion is that you can get raw gems from the auction house, then cut and flip them for a bit of very easy Gold. Because all I do is get one gem of each color or each cut at a time. Because sometimes gems take a while to sell. If you hoard a lot of gems, it will weaken your strength.

You can cancel the auction and reapply later. The same strategy applies to blue gems. But some people don’t want to plug expensive Epic Gems into their gear. Because they are still preparing replacements and changing gear frequently.

So you can still earn money on crappy gems, just by flipping them once. You can apply this easily with Alchemy transformations. Then you can easily make a profit just by sitting in the auction house.

Auction Raw Cloth

Also, it’s definitely worth having a custom replacement for passively crafting Gold. I also customized the character. Whenever I get cloth in WOTLK Classic, I send it to the tailor to make bags. This way you get more Gold from your original cloth. Or you can just auction off the raw cloth, with the caveat that you should never sell it.

In fact, you can get out of the habit of quickly rendering something like cloth and putting it in the auction house. Because in the long run, something is not worth much. You can do double crafting and cooking every day, and it hardly takes any time. Plus, from it you can collect all the raw gems you need for your daily virtual productions to save even more time.

Bank Character

A last piece of advice is to have a bank character that you can send all your resources to for the organization. It will tell you the best Gold farming method currently on the server. Because it scans the auction house data on all servers.

This concludes my Gold farming guide. Hope these methods help you to deal with raid missions without stress. Good luck.
