Also planning this to an extent - farming Timbermaw rep for the recipes etc. which do actually make gold.William wrote: ↑1 year agoI don't have any tricks or anything since I didn't experience this back in vanilla; however, I was planning to roll hunter first and just farm as well as I could, auction as much as I can, and generally do what hunters do. I like exploring everything, so I think my 'rush' is going to be at a snail's pace, to be honest.
Most likely flipping stuff on the AH
Selling portals in Kargath like a memelord and farming some lucrative gold spots as frost mage.
Its a risk to talk about secret farm spots ;)
i will farm while leveling.
hippos in the hinterlands 48-51 all items vendor
yetis wintersprimg 54-57 rugged leather for armor kits. people will need kits for darkmoon 1200 tickets. i will take orb of darkmoon for myself one item i dont need to roll with 40 in a raid.
unguro maybe one lvl 53-54 because i like farming and the crater.
my goal is mount with 40 and to have 500 gold with level 60.
Hopefully I'll find another Glowing Brightwood Staff. Not counting on it though.
I'll be enchanting and disenchanting. I made enough to be pretty comfortable in Vanilla with this profession, though there's a little grinding to get the profession levelled I'm not able to nolife my way to 60 anyway and so will probably just about have the resources to level it as I level.
As I am rolling warlock, I will be taking skinning and mining with a disenchant slave alt and just getting the mats to get as much as I can for 60!
Along the way I will network and try and make friends that will be willing to do the dungeon clearing half of getting my epic :)

Well, warlocks and paladins don't get their epic mounts for free either, only cheaper.
As a druid I never felt the urge to get a mount, not even a regular one at level 40.
Maybe it's an RP thing or I'm just modest, but once I get https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=783/travel-form I'm set, especially since I plan to at least go for rank 8 this time - the PvP set's 15% speed bonus combined with https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=13890 ... inor-speed will boost Travel Form to 163% travel speed = same as a regular mount + https://classic.wowhead.com/item=11122/ ... on-a-stick.
So, no - I won't farm gold for mounts, but invest in gear instead.
To me (reasonably) spending gold on gear upgrades is an important fun factor of the Vanilla leveling experience.
Leveling is about the journey, not the destination.
The only occasion I will miss having an epic mount will be battlegrounds as soon as other players will get their's, but I'm not too worried - at some point I will have enough spare gold anyways to buy one if I feel like it.
I got a date with a Princess.
Saying that, I will probably use that as a buy in to play the auction house more. On Northdale I straight grinded the whole chunk in Mara.
What's the deal with stacking speed bonuses for mounts? There are so many things like https://classic.wowhead.com/item=7969 and https://classic.wowhead.com/item=11226 on top of these. Do they all stack?Synergy wrote: ↑1 year agoMaybe it's an RP thing or I'm just modest, but once I get https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=783/travel-form I'm set, especially since I plan to at least go for rank 8 this time - the PvP set's 15% speed bonus combined with https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=13890 ... inor-speed will boost Travel Form to 163% travel speed = same as a regular mount + https://classic.wowhead.com/item=11122/ ... on-a-stick.
Yes, some people carry a 'riding set' to switch into when mounted. When you get run down on your epic mount by the opposite faction... that sucks.
I'll do a good combination of methods to get it.
I plan to level each character I play with gathering professions, and keep everything I don't use until after I hit 60 and then AH.
Then I will convert my lvl 60s to a tradeskill, and farm mats for Leather/Mail armor, and sell what I don't need.
Then I will farm some good secret spots I used to farm for rare drops.
Then start AH flipping when that is all done.
I have well over 10M gold on live, and plan to be 10k+ on Classic.
The secret is, AH everything. Greens/blues/mats/etc.
To reduce downtime, create a bank alt and just keep mailing your bank stuff and keep it in front of the AH.
Also, I plan to no life my first 60, which I am sure getting some rare mats early, will sell for a ton. I imagine I could sell the servers first devilsaur pieces for 200g if I do it first.

Yeah, once you know this way, you never go back.
Its still work, but its very time efficient.
The only issue with AH moneymongering is, that you need some money to start it.
I don't know if camp will work in Classic but one thing that should work is removing all gear with durability and then die and then ghost run to the entrance. The GY is not far away.
This is so hard not to do at times...
I've found it's way easier if I'm a caster, because what does an extra 2 int and 2 stam give me? There's hardly any +damage gear while leveling. But if I'm a melee class, then I tend to dabble it in a lot more. Even though usually the only items you should buy while leveling are weapons, and that's only at a moment where you can't be grinding a dungeon or something that drops something just as good.

Picking flowers, and pickpocketing BRD and/or RFD probably.
Questing, killing mobs, DE'ing everything I upgrade or can't use. (unless putting it on the AH is more lucrative) Essentially the same thing I did during Vanilla, I had an Epic mount shortly after hitting 60. Shouldn't be too difficult this time around.
I'm keen on trying to farm DM as a warlock but I might just stick to picking flowers.
