World of Warcraft: Pre-Cataclysm Gold Tips

Farm Now

Many of the “hot spots” have changed or are gone in Cataclysm. Don’t worry, they pretty much left Outland and Northrend alone. The Defias is no more, so the windmill spot is no longer an option. A couple of land masses shifted, so many of the routes are out, too. In fact, there is so much upheaval scaring the land that farming routes are made difficult. That is, of course, unless you have a flying mount, then not so much.

Do yourself a favor and start farming Core Items now.

Core Items

Core items are the most coveted and needed pieces of investments that can be found on the AH. Using our Profession Guides, these are the core items of worth needed for a speed skill 1 – 450 in any profession. These items will be monitored and price fixed by the knowledgeable and the more efficient players on your server. If you buy and sell solely from this list, you will become one of those players.

The list below is organized by need. Items listed as “Very High” are items that are of the highest demand. Items listed at “Very Low” are still needed, but will sell at a lesser rate. Higher items exist in a more stable market than those of a lesser demand. Resale of Med, High, and Very High core items listed at under 75% of the market average will always net you profit. Items of Low and Very Low status are best sold during high population peaks when a higher number of players are perusing the AH.

Note: High end items (such as jewels for crafting and titanium ore), are based on wants and not needs. They are luxury items. While profit can be made from items of “want,” they are not items of “need.” There are more players that “need” core items over players that “want” luxury items, so sales are more profitable when dealing with a majority.

Sell! Sell! Sell!……NO! WAIT! Buy! Buy! Buy!

This November, buy, farm, and save. Hit that CIL (Core Items List) and buy all the blue listed items (auctioneer). Save everything you collect and prepare to unload it in December. With a new expansion will come new players and low level toons by the truck load. Everyone will want to level up and skill up as quickly as possible.

Crafters, stock up. Especially you, Mr.Engineer. Hit the essentials this month (ore, leather, dusts, cloth, materials) and horde them. Don’t create glyphs, cut gems, or make elixirs. Keep the materials near by to craft out items as they are needed. No need making specially items if they are not needed. Stock up on meats.

See the world, sell your soul.

If you have a two person mount (I’m looking at you, with the rocket mount), then now is a good time for a world tour trip. The Dugi’s Achievement Guide gives all the coordinates for World Explorer. Might as well give a tour to those that don’t know the way. You know, before the world blows up and all.

Speaking of which, all the start zone have new quests. If you haven’t become exalted with the prime fractions yet, earn a few rep points by doing the low level quests. Once you fully switch over to Catty, go back and complete brand new low level quests for more rep.

Second Hand Clothing is the new Black.

Did I mention that Defias are no longer? Well, you know that means all that Defias gear is going to be really hard to come by in the future. Do a few routes through Westfall and DM to collect up what you can. Take a look around for Caty Websites for other gear that will soon be no more. Unload them for after the release at astronomical (but “fair”) prices.

Hey? Where Everybody Go?

Yes, yes. The sky is falling. The world is coming to an end. But, not this month.

Call of Duty: Black Ops will keep much of the WoW players (the ones with 2 second attention spans and money to burn) off the BGs and DFs. So while they are gone mass pwning each other, farm those nodes. The release of an expected huge game will clear the zones for you to farm, no matter what time of day, for at least 2 weeks. Take advantage of that.

Finally, It’s a Party!

Grab your friends, party up, switch to Free for All, and cull the lands. Get used to sharing quests, experience points, and cash. When the release date comes out, EVERYBODY will be on the same path to see the world. The Worgen, for example, have one of those phasing events for the first 10ish levels. You will want to buddy up with total strangers to push through this part as quickly as possible, or you will get stuck there for a very long time. (Beta Testers: Anyone wanna kill that old lady’s cat?)

That’s all I got, for now. High market days start Thanksgiving weekend and will be volatile until after new years.
