Recently, I’ve been paying a lot of attention to the method of gold farming in WOTLK Classic, so I wanted to do an update on the economic side of the game. Mainly how to invest in items in the game and earn gold coins from them.
I know a lot of players have been on a gold farm in WOTLK Classic lately and have made a difference. I’ve been doing it too since it came out. It’s just that I’m not very good at it, but for the last few weeks, I’ve been trying to build my investment backing portfolio. Today I’m here to show you some of the stuff I’ve been investing in and how my portfolio has grown from 370000 to 540000.
Actually, I’m not throwing these numbers out of thin air. I’m actually showing you my portfolio with TSM. So by going to TSM here, you can see the actual data, and it showed almost nothing on this dashboard. But if you go to Ledger, you can see that my current total value is now 606000. So we’ve gone from 370000 two months ago to 606000 now.
Now, I want to show you all what I have been investing in to get so much WOTLK Classic Gold. Because we are now halfway through the expansion, you may have missed Phase 1 of the investment. But let me tell you, the investments you make right now are worth almost as much.
Lately, I’ve been trying to increase my capital, basically using all my gold coins for further investments. Among them, I think the most worthwhile investment item is Dampscale Basilisk Eye.
Especially in my TSM Mailbox, I can usually see a lot of players have high demand for rare items like Dampscale Basilisk Eye. Basically, these items are obtained from Leaping Hatchling, but you can only log into this item once or twice a day, and you can earn 450 gold coins in 10 seconds, if you are lucky enough.
Meanwhile, I’ve also been trading some of my Pristine Black Diamonds with other players. Not only that, but many players have been trading Righteous Orbs for 40 gold recently, and Ravasaur Hatchling even managed to trade them for 475 gold. Essence of Air, Golden Pearls, and Flame Caps are some of the best options you can invest in. It’s just that you need to see the timing and trade in time to get the maximum profit.
For example, when Flame Caps are nerfed, I quickly get several Flame Caps, each of which is not even a gold coin. So if you picked these up, congratulations, you’re rich now. Because they’ve basically come up seven more times in just a few months. Since they’re nerfed by Ulduar, they’re basically seven-fold in three months.
Note that I always get items for the lowest price. It’s like Flame Caps. I only use the price of one gold coin to get them. Now, even at the price of seven gold coins, it is very profitable. Not to mention that I can even trade Flame Caps for 30 gold when they are in higher demand. Their prices can go up and down a lot, so they often need to be traded in time while they are still profitable.
But on my server it’s not the same between them and Titansteel Bar. I’ve been trying to place a limit price here, so I make a little profit from it. But they’re not worth that big of an investment because they’re really bad.
The same goes for Ebonweave and Moonshroud, both of which are a little profitable, but not massive. My fundamental way of making money right now is trading my Golden Pearls and Dampscale Basilisk Eye. I basically completed all my investments in WOTLK Classic Phase 3. I think these items are likely to keep going up in price, so I just trade them when I know they will be profitable and make sure I get a profit.
This explains why I can get tons of gold just by constantly trading items. Because the price fluctuates almost every day, I would rather just calculate the daily average cost and trade when it is profitable than trying to wait for a big profit day.
There is also the important issue that if prices spike in a short period, everyone with an investment will try to trade them at the same time.
So you have to trade items in time every day. The more stuff you store, the sooner you need to start trading, which is why I personally start making my investments now, even if Phase 3 isn’t over yet. Now we can use all this gold for further investments. And hopefully, with a little knowledge of which of your projects, you can earn more coins either way.
I hope this helps you earn some coins in WOTLK Classic. If you have hoarded a lot of items, they are all profitable, you might as well try to trade with other players in time during Phase 3. Maybe this can help you get a considerable profit.
