Do you miss running missions at-scale for gold-making? If it were possible to generate gold consistently through missions but requiring 10, 20 or 50 characters, would you do it?Yes, I miss the time when I could use my 12 max level alts to do missions, and i would level them up again and more to get the same amount of gold once more.Which strategy is most profitable for you? Do you combine all three equally or focus on one method more than others? Do you prefer a different gold-making strategy like farming?Crafting and selling bags got me some decent gold, but at the start of my first ever character I used mining and smelted ore to get some nice starting leveling money, buying tier gear at low and selling high can get you some nice profit if you know the price range.
Tailoring has been a big moneymaker with the Sinister gear post 8.1. Average profits of 6-7k per expulsom spent to craft. It is about as high a barrier to entry as you can get in BFA professions (due to needing marks of honor to buy the recipe, plus needing expulsom, plus the raw material cloth prices subject to market fluctuations). Only blacksmithing has been more profitable, which has an even higher barrier to entry because you need another profession (i.e. tailor/LW) in order to generate expulsom, and also ore costs are generally higher than cloth which discourages people to try and get into the market.
Even though I only did them occasionally, I certainly miss the extra income from the more profitable missions. It certainly gave me an extra incentive to check out the mission table, back in Legion.
flipping is how i got rich in legion. it was wonderful. back when TSM wasn't so damn laggy. ugh. i blew all my gold on tokens for overwatch lootboxes. something i...kinda regret now. i could have easily bought my longneck if i wasn't #$%^ing obssessed with OW lootboxes and having the desire to own EVERY.SINGLE.SKIN. now i own all the skins but like...why? i barely play the damn game and blizz will never stop making new ones cuz they know the system works. so glad i got too poor to keep feeding that sad addiction. but now i'll never see my longneck. /sighif i wasn't on a WoW vacation i might go back to it but i agree with everyone, it can be kinda scary. especially at the end of an xpac when people REALLY stop buying and then blizz does an item squish and now all your boe's that didn't sell are legit garbage. thx blizz. (i'll never forgive you for releasing BFA too soon and killing mage tower.)
Yes, i do miss gold missions. They were kinda good income of gold back in the day. Regarding the fact that it would be effective with that many characters honestly, with 10 maybe but not more, then it would require to get many resources so that would be kinda time consuming.
The discord bot seems really cool. Excited to see it evolve. Perfect timing on the tailoring video. I just got my rank 3's for the sinister stuff so I want to try it out. I don't know how it will be different on my low pop server. Less people need gear but less people making it. I'm definitely checking my shuffling for expulsom and DEing with my Tailor and LWer.
I would like the discord bot alot more if there were to be a few more tweaks made to it. Faster response and undercutting could be good,
I feel like a bot is too much. Like it's cute and all feels like it would just be a pain in the ass.
I'm glad that they're doing more developer Q&A streams. It's nice to see what they have planned and what's going through their minds when they're making changes to the game. I can't say I agree with all of them, but I can say that I at least appreciate the time it takes to sit down and respond to the questions the community has regarding the game.
Do you miss running missions at-scale for gold-making? If it were possible to generate gold consistently through missions but requiring 10, 20 or 50 characters, would you do it?---Yeah, it was a nice way to make gold really easily. The current system, while making a small amount, doesn't really make enough gold that it's very noticeable, nor reliable.If I needed 10 to 50 characters for it to be worth it, I likely wouldn't bother. The most I'd run is 5.
Do you miss running missions at-scale for gold-making? If it were possible to generate gold consistently through missions but requiring 10, 20 or 50 characters, would you do it?Yes, I would say garrisons were best for this. It wasn't just log on each character and do missions you had to interact with profession posts and do daily cool downs. This felt like you were actually doing something to get gold over very minimal effort. Also, I would say it was more satisfying.
i miss the old gold missions as i made a ton of gold off of it.As far as this expansion ive made a ton of gold off jc enchanting herbing and alch all together, there's tons of gold to be made you just have to try for it!
They need to just have most things account wide. I don't have time to do anything on my alts anymore.
I love playing the auction house. Things have changed a lot since I made my first 50k gold by cornering the market on silver ore for weeks at a time. Thanks for all this useful information, I plan on trying to turn some gold on tailoring next... had mostly given up on making a profit with it but maybe its worth another try.
i survive by flipping stuff on AH im like the pawn shop of my server people sell me stuff cheap when they need gold quickly cuz they all know im always on and i have gold then i just resell stuff for normal price and profit lol
I remember during Legion that a majority of my gold came from missions... I'd just keep sending my followers on said missions, and I would find myself with an ample supply of gold.Today, my gold comes in the form of emissaries and Island Expedition treasure maps.In the old days of Mists of Pandaria, when all the professions use to have meaning, I used to sell both ilvl 450 crafted gear from Tailoring, and all manner of gem types from Jewelcrafting. The larger portion of my gold coming from the latter.I truly wish gemming were a thing again, not only because it added depth to how you balanced your character's stats, but also gave Jewelcrafting more reasons to have as a profession than just making haste gems all day. Lucrative as it is, the Quick Owlseyes are hard to find if you don't dedicate a lot of time to mining and prospecting the ore. Even then, bad RNG can slap you in the face and leave you with an unprofitable pile of gems, of which only use might be a lowly 340 staff that could get replaced very quickly, and was expensive to make in the first place material wise. A return to the old professions would allow for all of them to have some kind of decent meaning... as it is each profession barely has any presence on the AH beyond very specific stuff, I feel. :/
I'm generally not big on crafting, largely 'cause of how discouraging the whole Expulsom factor tends to be 'cause it's just another RNG element. But that's quite a helpful tip regarding the bracers. And also what to scrap and what to disenchant. I didn't know you could get Expulsom from greens, though. Always thought it was blues, namely the azerite armor stuffs. But then again I guess I hadn't really paid too much attention to what comes out of the scrapping. Anyway, thanks.
Do you miss running missions at-scale for gold-making? If it were possible to generate gold consistently through missions but requiring 10, 20 or 50 characters, would you do it?I totally would do these. That was my main money making in WoD/Legion besides running Mythics/M+/Raids. I have multiple alts I run things on. Mainly going for mog/mounts. I miss being able to send followers out on missions for that gold reward. Tailoring for me, I got the rank 3s on some but all the bags ive made either went to alts or to my boyfriend for his toons. There was no selling of the bags. For me it was crafting purples to get the crystals to make my enchants.
I miss the high yield gold missions. Had many alts and fine tuned them to make a lot of gold with them. Wish they'd do some sort of compromise between what they were and what they are now. Legion was just ridiculous to say the least, but what they are now are just bleh!
I don't use many exterior tools beyond TSM and Undermine Journal, but I'd love to have a companion tool tailored to the transmog/collectable market. Keeping track of rarity, desirability, your stock, and most importantly making me feel like I'm not just throwing deposit fees at the wall and magically making money without rhyme or reason. (I mean, the transmog market sometimes is making money without rhyme or reason. Just... less so.)
