How to Get Gold in World of Warcraft: A Newbie Basic

So you are New to WOW or World of Warcraft Cataclysm? Here is a gold-making tip for brand-new Alliance newbies.

1. Kill everything you can from the moment you arrive.
Don’t run past things to get to the next place. Nuke or slice away on your way to where it is you are going. Then, sell everything that you put in your backpack. Only spend money on your basic training. Gear matters very little when you are first starting out. Keep up this grinding process until you have about 10 silver. It will happen fast.

2. Sell a basic thing: herbs.
If you are in Stormwind, go all the way around to the flower shop that is near the unused instance-gate. It’s called Fragrant Flowers. Go just up the road from the Stormwind Gryphons and make the first right. Go through that tunnel and then make a right again. All the way down at the end of that road is the Flower Shop. You are also going to need this Shop later for the “Stormwind Seasonings” when you get questing in the Darkshire region.

In the flower shop, spend a few of your silver on one of the cheaper herbs that the vendor sells such as mageroyal or earthroot. Typically these will sell for about 75 (or so) copper. Don’t spend all your silver here! The vendor’s name is Bernard Gump and he is at the basic coordinates 69, 71. Don’t buy flowers from any of them. They’re junk.

Hint: Later on, you will be asking, “Where do I get Stormwind seasoning?” The answer is: the lady right next to Bernard. Make a note in your head about this.

4. Auction House Buy Out
Take these few herbs and go put them up on the auction house. You will need a few silver to put the herbs at a buy out price of 20-40 silvers each. On most servers, this should be a steal price for the other players. Sell the herbs individually and be sure you have a buy-out price.

Do this process a few times and you will be on your way to a few gold. I’ve used this exact basic process to have hundreds of gold on my first level characters multiple times over. Slow and steady and profitable should be your goal. Start with this very basic process.

There is never a need to beg other for gold or say stupid things in trade-chat about needing money.

The very best gold-making guide on the market is this one. Come get your copy.
