WoW Blacksmithing Gold Making Guide Part 2 - Patch 3.3.5-4.0!

Average: 5 (100 votes)

This is an overview video and detailed walkthrough on how to easily make gold with Blacksmithing in Patch 3.3.5. As shown in the video, this made me 11,010g in net sales with a profit of 4,221g in a few days! This Blacksmithing Gold Making Guide P2 is good even if you don't have a lot of startup gold. However, don't spend everything you have. Different servers have different economies so it's best to always start by testing the waters before sinking in a lot of gold into anything.

WoW Blacksmithing Gold Making Guide P2: Auctioning Items/Final Results

  • Alright, so I have everything made and it's time to list the items. My server has tons of competition so I like to list the items with a one silver undercut for 12 hours. The idea here is to be the first to show up on the AH search page without driving the price down rediculously. If you're just sitting around in Orgrimmar or Stormwind between raids and PvP'ing, you can also spam trade to get rid of some of the items a bit faster. I use Auctioneer to list items and you can find a guide on the addon here.
  • Alright, so it's been a few days and most everything sold so time to break the numbers down and see how I made out.

  • Blacksmithing really is a good profession that can be a bit slow seeming at times but really pays to have it especially going into Cataclysm since it's likely to have the first epics for all classes. Make sure that if you try anything in this guide, you take it easy at first and build your way up to your server's maximum demand. For anyone tight on gold, you'll want to start with cheap items like rods and Eternal Belt Buckles before moving on to anything expensive.

WoW Blacksmithing Gold Making Guide Part 2: Final Suggestions and Tips

  • Once you get the hang of how much you sell begin purchasing mats during the weekend; they are typically the cheapest on the weekend.

    The main reason for this, is most players aren't actually raiding on the weekends and have a lot more time to gather mats. With the abundance of mats comes the simple economic rule of supply exceeding demand which leads to lower prices. This doesn't mean 100% of the time they will be cheaper on the weekend but instead it makes it more likely. After you get a feel for mat prices you can purchase them throughout the week for the lowest prices.

  • Checking on mats everyday will get you familar with who sells what.

    Pay attention and take a look at who is selling mats all the time and message them to sell directly to you at a discount. This will save you big on the craft costs. I have countless farmers listed on my friend's list who I deal with regularly to get the cheapest price possible.

  • Finally, World of Warcraft isn't just about making gold and really should be the smallest part of your playtime.

    I hope this guide will help you get rich in World of Warcraft but at the same time free up farm time so you can actually enjoy the game for what it is meant to be; fun! So, don't sit at your computer 24-7 just to make gold. Go out, raid, PvP, whatever, just make sure to have fun (^_^)v.
