Low Level Gold Making- Reader Question

I want to remind you all to make sure and get your comment in for my giveaway tommorow! Freebie Loot Cards! Can't beat it! Make sure you enter! After all, it doesn't cost you a dime, and you have great odds winning one!

I received a reader email a few days back:

i just started playing warcraft last month. i know, i am a little late getting started. but here is my question. i was told that enchanting was a good starter proffesion, i am also a herbalist and I am wondering where I can go to make some money with them. i have been questing in barrens is there somewhere that has alot of gold? i want to get gold to buy a mount. i like your blog but the things you talk about are way out of my range as i only have 13 gold to start with my brother gave me 10, but i need to pay him back. i dont have the money to buy your coaching otherwise i would buy your coaching just hoping you can help.

Thanks for asking this question, I will do my best to help. First off, I want to direct you to a few WoW gold forums, The Consortium, JMTC, and Massively Obsessed. They are free, you just need to set up an "account" to get a login name, and off you go! Don't hesitate to ask the folks at any of those locations, you will see that in the gold community, most folks are more than happy to help out!

Let's get started. Before I get to far, I want you to install a couple add-ons. If you are wondering how to do that, you can ask your brother or you can go to curse gaming and they have how-to's on the process. I reccommend you to get the following: Auctioneer and Auctionator for right now. You can get into more addons at a later date, but these are the ones you need to get started.

Now you are making me rack my brain a bit here, but I thought up a little plan for you. In the area that you are questing, there's a little town called Ratchet:

As an enchanter, this is a viable town to pick up some vendor gear to D/E or to equip. For a small investment (30-40s in most cases) as well. What I want you to do is go around to all the buildings (and outside them as well) and start buying up the "limited" gear that they sell. Here's a few screenies of what you are going to want to purchase there.

For less than 4g, you can grab all of these. Now what I want you to do is "mouseover" these items. You should see something this ---------->

This will help you see what the approximate value is to disenchant, and if it will be profitable for you to do so. If you look from top to bottom, I will explain what you are seeing. What the % "proc" that the item will make upon d/e'ing. See where it lists the Disenchant value? 3g38s38c? That is the most important part of your process. For an item that is 40s, you can literally gain 3g profit upon selling the "mats" on the auction house. For the 7 items I pictured above, you can estimate an almost 20g profit (due to procs, these will fluctuate).

What I would like you to do while you are running around questing, hit Ratchet, grab up these items, do a few quests (they have a "soft" reset of 30 min to 2 hours on these items), and run back to town to check the vendors again. Since Org is only a quick FP to toss them on the AH, add that to your routine here as well. Before you know it, you will be able to pay your brother back and you will be on your way to a nice chunk of change, and you will get your mount asap.

*By the way, I would like you to click on this paragraph to see the location for a "rare'ish" pet that spawns in the area, if you get that, you will have a quick 50-150g upon selling it...there is a 6 to 12 hour reset (last I knew) on this to appear, so check the nearby area for this as well!

Good luck to you in your new endeavors with making gold, I hope this helps!

For all you pro's out there, if you have any other advice, don't hesitate to leave a comment to help this cat out, think back to when you started and how tough it was. Take a minute or two and leave something you might have done back then, I am sure they would appreciate it! Thanks ahead of time!

Here's my tip.

Drop enchanting. Pick another Gathering Profession so that you have two. Sell everything you gather on the Auction House.

You won't be able to get very far with enchanting without a lot of gold to begin with. When you are level 75+ then look for a crafting profession.

Sign guild charters in SW or Org.

People pay anywhere from 5-25g per signature. If you can put off joining a guild for a few levels you can make some quick coin this way.

Be quick to /w them so you can be sure to get the signature. After the guild is created type /gquit leave the guild.

You're then ready for your next signature.

yeah, I'd agree with Cold on this one - enchanting is a toughie to level on your first alt. Pick mining & you get 2 bonuses - extra xp to help you level plus you get to sell all the herbs & ores along the way.

Also, buy some bigger bags (the biggest you can afford) - less need to delete stuff whilst out & about questing = more stuff to vendor or auction. Set up a banker alt - just mail everything for the AH to that alt then do your auctions in one session.

Good luck :)

Yup, gotta go with Cold on this. Though Alto's advice on getting those addons and figuring them out is invaluable, and DEing at lower levels is pretty great (DE quest rewards/stuff from instances/vendor items), it's not going to take long until you can't level up Enchanting from DEing, and you'll need to actually enchant stuff to increase your skill to where you can DE the item's you're currently picking up. Chances are, you won't be able to solely use what you pick up to advance your profession, meaning a) you don't have mats to sell, and b) you have to buy your mats! Which is exactly the opposite of what you're trying to do!

Instead, pick up Mining. Make sure you keep both professions leveled to where you can gather the stuff in whatever zone you're currently in. This will unfortunately mean you'll need to stick around for a bit even after you've "outgrown" the current zone, but it'll be worth it in the long run. Doing this helped me get regular flying right at 60, cold weather flying at 68, and epic flying at 73 on my second character. That was almost a year ago and with only mining, so if you keep *both* mining and herbing updated, you're going to be set.

Also, flux's advice is pretty fantastic too. Keep your eye out for people buying charter sigs in trade chat. Very easy to make some extra coin doing that.
