As I said in previous articles, if you want to make gold in world of warcraft, mining is one of the best professions to start off with. Here are some more WoW mining tips.
When you decide what you want to mine you need to go to the area that you want to farm from. Take a look at the geography and make sure to look for the high ground such as hills and mountains. There is a reason for this.
Now that your bags are full you run straight to the Auction House and put it all up for sale right? Not necessarily, this is where your selling strategy comes into play. Remember, mining in World of Warcraft is more effective if you have a plan of attack.
There will be times where the ore you have just farmed may be inflated (in demand and therefore you make more gold) and other times where it will be deflated (not in high demand and therefore you profit less). To know this you need to get the Auctioneer add-on, this will track the prices for you and you can watch the pricing trends. The strategy then becomes to sell whatever ore you have on hand at the right time to maximize profit.
You can see why the Auctioneer is so important, if used properly you can net a few more gold pieces if you time the market right. Another option is to find a jewelcrafter to prospect your ore. This gives you a chance at getting valuable gems. Yes, it might be a little risky but you can really make a ton of gold if you get an expensive gem.
You also have potential buying prospects with blacksmiths and engineers. I recommend that you find a few and offer your ore directly to them, you might find a trading partner or a network of partners that will pay you fast. This network will have the advantage of saving you time as well since you won’t have to do any work at the Auction House.
As you can see, there are many methods and approaches to mining in World of Warcraft. Good luck!
