First time i went two gathering professions. Skinning and Mining. Sold everything i gathered and bought a mount at 40 no problem. I will probably transition to BS/engi later, once i collect enough buffer gold

Devilsaurs. Wardens Satff. Essences. Played the AH a bit. Alllllll for an early set of https://classic.wowhead.com/item=14551/ ... handguards which I gladly picked up today. Will be working towards my https://classic.wowhead.com/item=12640/lionheart-helm next, but arcane crystals are in high demand.

With layering, an epic mount isnt much of a priority for collecting nodes or escaping PvP. And without BG's its not pertinent for winning games... So its a low priority for me right now.
Reading through the comments on https://classic.wowhead.com/item=14551/ ... s#comments is hilarious, little did they know:
"*!@#test epic ever"
"this is so bad it makes baby jebus cry :( my first random epic drop ever - but hey, easy 30g"
"What a wretched drop. I was literally bursting with joy when I saw the purple text... And then I saw the details and realized it was utter crap. I'll be lucky to get 20g for it."

Personnaly, I was short for about 40-50 golds when I reached 40, so I figured I'd need to do some more intensive farming sessions.

Being a Skinner/Leatherworker, I also wanted to take that time to farm mobs that would help me level it up, so my best choice was to farm Scalding Whelps because these guys were about the same level as me, are the first kind of "Dragonkin" that you're able to farm for some Worn Dragonscales and also drop some good components that could be potentially resale at the AH, now or later, such as Wicked Claws (used to craft the Lionheart Helm) or Small Flame Sacs (used to craft Fire Protection Potions)

And also, you have a slight chance (.05%) of dropping a Dark Whelpling which is (now or later) very valuable and can resale for multiple golds.

So yeah, if you're like me, find this place on empty hours and farm it for 8 hours straight, or 1/2 days of casual farming, and you should be good to go :mrgreen:

Geez Teebs, I swear I read somewhere else that you were "broke and loving it".

I'm at lvl 22 and barely broke the 6 gold mark, not even buying all the skills. I honestly don't know how I made it back in vanilla, I just remember being "late" and having to farm a bit to get mount at 42 or 3. I'm glad I'm a warlock now, honestly...

I just sell my greens with good stats in the AH. The rest goes to the vendor. And I started to sell mageweave bags. At the moment the price is okay on my server 1g10s buyout per bag (60s=mats). I will check out the enchant mats prices later on, maybe I can make more with that.

I can't believe that a Shadowfang sold for 2g. I'm litterally pounding my desk. I plan on building a rogue twink in the future so reading that really hurts.

It's called GW2 UI, I use an older version because the new one did something to the hp circle that I dislike.

Just hit 20 on my hunter and got my Aspect of Cheetah so I'm running the copper gauntlet everyday now for 2 to 3 hours and selling it. I refuse to have to grind at 40 for my mount, I did that last time and it sucked. Going to make sure I have plenty of gold for that first mount, not to mention all training is getting much more expensive now. I solo with no guild so epic mount means nothing to me so I don't have to worry about that money. Once I hit 60 time for a new toon and they can use whatever gold I've collected more than I need an epic mount on the first toon.

Rolled a Warlock. Chose Skinning. Didn't buy stupid shit. Sell what makes sense on AH, and I vendor most of my greens unless I know for sure it's a big sell. I'm at around 55g currently at level 38. I've spent 6g on respecs and 5g on spellpower gear from AH. Not doing too bad atm.

I use AH to empty my bags. I'm not actively grinding professions, but skinning and mining mats sell very fast. I also sell random drops, but they are a bit slow. I found that people also actively buy tradeable quest items.

Dropped 9g on https://classic.wowhead.com/item=11207/ ... ery-weapon last night, few others listed at 30 - 50g so hopefully I can make something.

Playing with gold when every copper counts is kinda fun!

Had quite the turn of events for me and my goldfarm/grind.

Other than having a nasty headcold slowing me down. Just feeling drained and really lazy for some reason. Anyhow my friends and I took up the free transfer from Whitemane to Arcanite Reaper...

The population is scarce to say the best and the AH barely works because of lack of population. My census mod shows me that mostly everyone is below us on this server. We're really not bummed about it. The queue is gone and we can all play whenever we feel like it. But if you didn't get your mount gold before transferring its a big brick wall in that grind.

Currently killing rock elementals in Badlands for thier amazing vendor trash. Wish me luck...

There have been 2 methods that I utilized to make money for my mount. I've been leveling enchanting as I level because I want that BiS trinket for druid tanking, so my pockets were probably around 20g when I hit 40. Not great.

This first method I used worked really well - on private servers. It would generate about 20g an hour. However, when I tried it here it was around 6-10g an hour depending on how lucky you got. The method was farming SM GY in the graveyard proper. You stealth through the opening elite mobs and just grind the non elite spirits in the graveyard and kill any of the three rare spawn bosses that spawn. However, I found that it wasn't making me enough gold.

My next method was much better for making gold. A lot of people already know about it, and even though it is really good, I'd primarily recommend it if you're a druid and horde.

In Desolace, there is an NPC that you can turn 5 shellfish into (which can be farmed from cages right next to the dock where said NPC is at) for 55s per 5 shellfish.

So, per 10 shellfish you're generating over 1 gold and some traps can have 2 shellfish in them. It actually turned out to be a very good farming method, albeit a little boring. But becareful because word has already spread about this method and it's a popular spot now which is why I suggest doing this as a druid because you will be able to swim faster than everyone else, and being able to breathe underwater is great as well.

I did some mindless Desolace trap farming for few hours between levels 34 and 36, along with playing the AH here and there.
I now sit comfortably at 120 gold at level 38, so my level 40 mount is safe and secure! Can't wait to hit level 40 (since warriors also get Mortal Strike at that level)!
