Awesome trick really. In this farm we'll be taking advantage of game mechanics to exploit a way into getting more defias loot drops. The defias leggings and gloves have respective selling prices of 3,000g and 14,000g and only drop from 1 mob in the instance a staggering 1% of the time. But do not fret, we can get the upper hand on this. Much like past drop-combat farms, if you kill just one of the two defias overseer's in the instance, THEN drop combat, the one you killed will instantly respawn. The trick here is to bring a character that can consistently drop combat and score many more kills than the average farmer. To date, a hunter is best – with night elf being slightly better because of shadowmeld. You can also bring potions of invisibility to boost the effect. Anyway, while the average farmer only gets 1 shot to get these super rare xmogs, with this method you can get up to 40 chances in an hour. Seems fair right?
For this farm we're taking it all the way back to eastern kingdoms. We're going to be killing the purespring elementals in the purespring cavern for the item essence of water. Essence of water is a semi-rare drop that goes for a shocking 252g per piece. The caveat is that it doesn't drop all too often, but is still worth the trouble. I wasn't getting TOO many of these, but I was still making bank with them. The essences are used to create the old-world illusions, so they do have some inherent value. Simply patrol the area and kill as many elementals as your heart desires. It's a really cool and fun farm that can be done on autopilot. Usually there is noone patrolling the spot.
A farm that I myself made drastically popular about 2 years ago. This farm is a simple pet and transmog spot that requires you to pull the entire wailing carverns instance. Besides how it sounds, this farm is VERY easy going and can literally be done while you watch something else entirely. (netflix maybe?) While it's not as potent as it used to be, it still has some merit in it, especially if your server is low on the deviate hatchling pet. While it does take some time to drop, I can usually average a deviate hatchling every 30 minutes or so. However, since I released the video on it, the price of the pet has dropped wildly.
While this is more a method than a farm, I still thought it belonged in this video. This method takes advantage of the long forgotten spell, void shatter. Generally because of the logistics behind how easily obtainable void crystals are when compared to large prismatic shards, void crystals cost SUBSTANTIALLY less. The void shatter spell however turns 1 void crystal into 2 large prismatic shards. Globally large prismatic shards are worth 15g a piece, while void crystals trend around 2-4g a piece. Can you do the math on that? You can literally triple your investment cost by creating more prismatic shards for your market. All it requires is for you to get honored with the shattered sun offensive, a little known fact that most enchanters are too lazy to take advantage of. Nobody is doing this, and on most servers the market it ripe to take over. Don't believe me? Check it out yourself!
Escort quests can take awhile to do. I have thoroughly tested all the escort quests in the game for time/xp. Most are worth doing, but as long as you are able to actually do them without failing. Most require you to pay special attention to the escortee as most are fragile and will die easily, so do your best to keep mobs off of the escortee during escort quests. The longest one in the game is the Tanaris chicken escort. The chicken escorts are only worth doing if you were able to do all 3 of them, as if you do, you will be able to turn in an additional easy quick XP turn in quest at BB, which makes them worth it.
It seems Classic really is bringing old friends together, as Blizzard have gathered up the original development team for Vanilla and had them chat about the experience of making the game while playing Classic. We have legends in the WoW community talk about their origins so to speak, what jobs they started out as, including the first 2 quest designers in Pat Nagle and Jeff Kaplan. We also have the return of the previous game director Tom Chilton aka Kalgan, as well as Alex Afrasiabi and Aaron Keller. Kaplan's goal of Onyxia by the end of their play session was not achieved, however, but Metzen does get a mention and a quote!
Okay, this farm really picked up steam here in late legion. Generally what we're looking for is volatile air, and other volatiles when combined with the potion of treasure finding. This farm is as easy as pulling the entire instance all the way to the first boss – and AOE'ing down ebery mob that follows. In the video you can see me getting volatile airs in stacks of 11 for each pull I make. Wit the trending price of each volatile being worth at least 100g, I was making 1100g per pull. It's by far the most effcient volatile spot, but it has hits limits as you can only reset an instance 10 times before you have to wait a while to do it again. If you only going to be on for an hour or so, this is the spot you want to hit. It's great, fast, and awards a high liquid value of items. Awesome Stuff.
A cool little pet farm that can take minutes or ages depending on the god of luck. This spot contains some of the most dense troll spawns in the game, and each has the highest chance to drop the parrot pet thats soo sought after. On every serve rthis per has amedian value of about 70,000g so picking one up can be a pretty cool feat. Like the sprite darter hatchling spot its, a random farming spot that requires alot of RNG to pull off, but if you get it to drop you can make out in spades. The other drops are miniscule when compared to this spot.
I generally hate this farming spot, although I remember alot of farmers coming up big here. For my liking the drop chance on the sprite darter hatchling is very low and I couldnt ever come up with one during this expansion. HOWEVER, if you do get one, you an make out BIG - as this pet is non-existent on pretty much every server's AH. Did I mention it goes for a stunning 150,000g? Yup. Then add to the fact that many players LOVE this pet, especially girls for some reason... And you can make a big profit if you get one to drop. Honestly I hate it, it just rubbed me the wrong way. You can find it in new thalanar, on the very east side of feralas. Good luck.
Make WoW gold in BfA by making the most of the valuable components in Battle for Azeroth. In BfA, gathering has become more valuable than ever with Herbalism and Mining specifically being lucrative sources of WoW gold. This BfA Gold Guide focuses more on Herbalism than Mining but it you prefer to not take Enchanting or a crafting profession, then mining is a strong choice that lets you increase the amount of gold you can farm while out grinding Herbs for gold. This video was created in World of Warcraft, BfA patch 8.0.
You can earn a decent amount of XP by doing Herbalism or mining. Any zone works but I prefer Sholazar Basin as a lot of the mobs are not aggressive and the mobs are spread out so you will find a lot of herbs and ore that you don’t have to fight for. It is possible to make about a level every hour by doing this, or a level every 30-40 minutes with rest XP.
40% of the book is maps with notes (useful always). 30% is detailed descriptions of the classes and their skills and spells and tips for playing them (useful when starting out). 10% is a list of items and monsters in the game (not very useful). 5% is an extension of the manual, telling you how to do things (useful). 5% is how to get started in each starting area (I haven't used this.). 5% is play tips (useful mainly to beginners). 1% is abreviations and what they mean (useful mostly to beginners). 4% is miscelaneous information.
While not as powerful as it was before 7.3, this transmog spot is a good area to amass a large number of BOE greens that generally fly around the 35 – 42 area. It's popularity stemming from the amount of items that drop (and the potential value of those items) rather than the quality of each drop itself. Generally drops from these farms can take a while to sell even when using my TSM posting style. However if your low on transmog stock this can be an awesome area to hit every now and then.
