BfA Gold Farming Battle for Azeroth – WoW

WoW Official Logo Battle for Zeroth BfAWith Battle for Azeroth set to be released in just days, it's time to look at BfA Gold Farming. Professions do not take as active a role as they did in LEGION, so you're going to want to play it a slightly different way, if you want to maximize your gold farming. This includes changing the professions on the character you plan to run up first. It will help you maximize your gold gain.

If you haven't yet picked up your cdkey for the expansion yet, we recommend you check out our partner to save a bit and get the key faster.

BfA Gold Farming - Professions

Herbalism

One of the mandatory BFA professions. Inscription (Contracts) mainly make this the go-to profession early on in the expansion. Reputations are a huge deal early on in BFA and you don't want to miss out on contracts. You can drop this one at a later time or use it on your alt.

Mining 

Gathering professions are as strong as ever early on in the expansion. Great idea to have this covered early on in the expansion to be self-sufficient. 

Inscription 

Strongest professions early on due to the contract system. Ilvl 300 offhands, 7% stat buff scrolls and vantus runes. 

Skinning 

Gathering professions are as strong as ever early on in the expansion. Great idea to have this covered early on in the expansion to be self-sufficient. 

Alchemy 

Good choice duo to the daily Expulsom transmute (5 / day). ilvl 300 trinkets, flasks and various potions can be crafted. 

Tailoring 

Increased cloth drop rate. Great profession to have pre-raid to get yourself 2x 355 ilvl cloth items (Pants & Gloves). In addition, you can craft 30-32 slot bag, blue 300 ilvl gear and bandages. 

Leatherworking 

Great profession to have pre-raid to get yourself 2x 355 ilvl leather items (Pants & Boots). In addition, you can craft blue 300 ilvl gear, a fist weapon, a bow and drums. 

Blacksmithing

Great profession to have pre-raid to get yourself 2x 355 ilvl plate items (Pants & Belt). In addition, you can craft blue 300 ilvl gear and various melee weapons. 

Engineering 

Bombs, belt enchant, unique 340 ilvl goggles with very unique azerite traits. Hunter scopes, 300 ilvl gun, mace and the new mimiron head v2.0. Overall a weak choice pre-raid. 

Jewelcrafting 

Gems as usual. 300 ilvl rings, staves and a mainstat unique gem. Overall the weakest profession pre-raid. 

Enchanting 

Various enchants for weapons and rings, glove enchants to speed up gathering tasks, and unique BoP bracer enchants modifying your hearthstone. 300 ilvl wand can be crafted. Can be a good choice after M+ opens to dispose of all the drops. 

Cooking 

Food & Feasts. You'll need this for weekly / wq turn-ins to get more rep/ap.

Fishing 

Haven't been able to test this fully on beta. You'll need this for weekly / wq turn-ins to get more rep/ap. 

Archaeology 

Haven't been able to test this fully on beta. From the looks of it nothing important here that affects PvE. 

Pet Battle 

While not a traditional profession, I'd still like to touch on this since there are pet battle wq's that award reputation + contract rep.

BfA Gold Farming - Must Read!

  • Keep all your greens and blues while levelling for scrapping.
  • Professions play a much smaller role in the start than legion. The most they can provide you with early on is 2 item slots of gear, but these can also be obtained as drops or rep rewards.
  • With the new system it's also much easier to pick and drop professions at any time with no longer having to level them up thru the previous expansions. You'll only have to level up to 150 points with simple and fast quests for up to rank 3 recipes. 
  • On alts is best to just pickup Herbalism + 1 other profession of choice.

Recommended profession combo on your main:

  • Herbalism + Inscription (Quickly make contracts for yourself or friends)
  • Herbalism + Mining/Skinning (Farm orientated with aim to sell and buy contracts)
  • Herbalism + Alchemy (Best way to get plenty of Expulsom early on)
  • Herbalism + Tailoring / BS / LW (You'll have to buy / trade for contracts)
  • Closer to raid opening (Uldir), Herbalism and Inscription will lose their value since you won't need the reputation anymore. These professions are best replaced for a more functional one on the third reset:
    • Тailoring / Leatherworking / Blacksmithing (355 gear crafts with options to make raid level 370 / 385 gear)
    • Alchemy (As usual the best raiding profession offering you all the consumables and double duration flasks)
    • Enchanting (Converting M+ drops into enchanting materials)
