Farming tips for WoW are plentiful, and you may have run into several different tips in your time playing the game. When I first started out, I tried several methods of farming that I found to be very useful, and then realized that I was doing them the wrong way! This is when I learned about the Auction House. But did you know that the Auction House can be used to make massive amounts of gold? Here are a few tips on how to farm in Warcraft and make a lot of gold in the process!
So how do you get started? The easiest farming spot for an Alliance player is the Barrens. The Ironwoods and the Hills nearby offer some nice farming spots as well. Just watch out for those monsters called “Taunka” that spawn little spiders that can deal a lot of damage. If you want to learn the ins and outs of farming here, you will want to read this.
An Orc player can find the Tuskarr very easy to farm as well. It’s up in the hills above the Storm Peaks. When you kill one of these mobs, it drops some very nice items such as the Gorehowl. The only problem is that the drop rate on the items is very low. That’s why you need to do some farming before heading out to kill them! You’ll probably need some potions of enchanting or alchemy before heading out in a group to farm the Tuskarr.
There is also a quest door in Shadowfang Keep that has an auction house that you can use to make some gold. What you need to know is that with an Alliance character, you can click on the door and instantly gain access to whatever you want to farm. This makes farming harder, but with an Orc you can just use a potion of enchanting or alchemy to help out. When you get to the place where you can buy the food from the merchant, you can use a courier to bring it back!
Some other farming tips include the ability to gather herbs on the Alliance side as well. You can go to Warsong Gulch and turn in quests for herbs and then turn around and sell all of them for a great profit! You can also do this for the Horde side as well. But, the biggest thing you should know about farming is that it’s very time consuming. You’ll have to do it every hour or so!
Another important thing to note when using these farming tips is that you will be constantly moving from area to clear off more herbs. This means that you will have to learn to manage your time wisely. If you do not have any spare time, then this is not the option for you.
