About Me

Playing World of Warcraft

I started playing WoW in early 2008. I managed to get my first character to level 70 just a few weeks before Wrath of the Lich King was released. My most memorable moment in WoW is also my worst idea: creating a DK on launch day. The server was so crowded with people that it really did feel like a war against New Avalon. However, the server was so crowded with people that I had to fight over every single quest objective and it took forever to get out of the starting zone.

I played very casually for most of my time during Wrath. I got into a few PuG raids and tried my hand at Naxx and Ulduar but I was a TERRIBLE player at the time. I was the kind of person you wouldn’t wan anywhere near a raid. I did eventually join a casual raiding guild, and I learned a lot from them. We ended up downing The Lich King on 10N just a few weeks before Cataclysm was released.

I played Cataclysm for a few months. I distinctly remember the heroic dungeons being a real challenge for most groups. I was still a pretty bad player at the time and I know now that I made a ton of mistakes in them. My guild ended up falling apart for reasons I never found out.

I took a fairly lengthy break from 2011 to 2014 because my first two kids were born. I missed out on most of Cataclysm AND Mists of Pandaria. I came back to the game in March of 2014 and started working on levelling and finding a new guild. I ended up finding one that was willing to take me even though I had virtually no raid experience. I started raiding with them in Siege of Orgrimmar, and it was around this time that I actually started to become a solid player.

I raided with them for the rest of MoP and through Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry. For the entire time I had been back I had tried to start making gold. I had a pretty good level of success and was very happy with it. I ended up leaving the guild and focusing entirely on making gold. And I have been surprised over and over again with what I have learned and done.

Making Gold in WoW

I’m not the most experienced gold maker around and I will never claim to be. I’m very new to the community. There are others with more experience out there than me. In fact I regularly check their websites for any new information they put out.

I believe in being honest and as transparent as possible. I will freely give advice to anyone who asks for it. However I want to make it known that I will not give a customized step-by-step guide on making gold. If people are given the answer they will stop asking questions. And when the economy inevitably changes they will have no idea what to do.

The most important thing you need to learn about making gold is that you need to learn about making gold.

I’ve said this before and I will keep saying it. You need to learn about making gold. Anybody can make gold in WoW. Really. Anybody can do it so long as you learn how to do it. And that’s the reason behind why I write the posts that I do, to help people learn.
