WoW Classic gold is just as important as its Retail counterpart. This means you’re going to need piles and piles of it if you want to get anywhere. Upgrades, enhancements, better equipment, skills and abilities, all cost money. In order to afford these things, you’re going to have to do a bit of farming. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some essential gold farming spots that will help you earn big in WoW Classic.

Minimize Class and Profession Training

Class Training

To train or not to train? Training spells and different ranks of spells costs a lot, and this will most likely be your primary money sink. Therefore, you should only train what you actually use or need. For example, as a Shaman you likely will not use Frostbrand Weapon – ever. So don’t waste money on training it. Another example are resurrection spells. Rank 1 will resurrect fine, albeit bringing your party member back to life with less Hit Points and Mana. Just heal them up another way. If you are a completionist like me, just get those spells and ranks later on. But after you’ve already gotten your epic mount. There are many excellent class guides on this site that will suggest to you what to train and what to skip.

Profession Training

You should use the same logic that you just learned for class training toward profession training. If you can get away with training only some recipes while still increasing your profession skill, do it. If you plan on leveling a profession, there are many well made profession guides on CWL as well as on other sites. Only train the recipes you need to save some serious coin!

Weapon Training

You don’t need to know how to use every weapon early on. Before you get significant ranks of reputation with capital cities, weapon training is 10s per weapon (except Polearms and Crossbows). Weapon training may not be a huge issue for casters, but it can be a significant cost sink for melee classes. Only train weapons when you absolutely need to. In other words, as an example, if you are a Warrior and have swords, do not train for axes until you come across an axe that is a significant upgrade to your DPS and not a moment sooner.


Dungeons have always been one of my favorite ways to make gold. You can get a lot of vendor trash from dungeons. If you’re in a good dungeon group you’ll be able to breeze through the content. Running dungeons won’t make you rich, but you can certainly sell the spoils on the Auction House. Be sure to only sell green and blue items though. Vendor gray and white items. If you’ve got an Enchanter you can also Disenchant some of the green and blue items too.

Buy Low & Sell High on the Auction House

This has been the most common strategy to farm gold over the lifespan of World of Warcraft. This can be a long term strategy, however, so if you need gold right away, then you might want to consider some of the other options.

What you want to do is gather up enough gold to purchase both the Shadowfang and Assassin's Blade from the Auction House. These will be flooding the market because of how many people will be playing the game in the early stages of the launch. You can then, hopefully, sell those in a couple of months when the surplus of items has gone down and the demand has gone up. This should net you a pretty tidy profit, but again this is a more long term play.

To go further with this, you can use a couple of addons for the Auction House. Both Auctioneer and Aux will help you figure out what you can purchase that's below market value, and will give you a chance to sell them for a higher price!

Mage Only: Sell Portals, Conjured Food & Drink

When people are grinding out their levels they will be hoping to cut down on the time spent traveling around Azeroth. If you're a Mage, you can charge people some silver to Portal them to their next location! You can do this by sitting in the main hub city (Stormwind for Alliance & Orgrimmar for Horde). You can also conjure stacks of food and drink and sell that to players. Just charge less than what it would cost to purchase it at a vendor!

Jadefire Farm Run

This is a farming method that involve collecting an item you will need if you are a caster in raids, but will also net you some pretty sweet gold. You will need to go to Felwood and to the places circled on the map below.

These areas have a bunch of satyrs that are part of the Jadefire clan. If you're a raider, they drop Demonic Runes which can be used to recover mana at a cost of your health. You are likely going to need to farm these regardless, so it's worth your time to hit these spots. The other thing they drop is Felcloth, which is a hot item for Tailoring. Not only is it used for the Felcloth Bag, it's also used to create certain Warlock items that are quite powerful. This cloth sells very well on the Auction House, so farming it plus gaining runes will kill two birds with one stone.

Grinding Whelps

If you're looking to get a bunch of leather, reagents for raids, and possibly a rare pet, then grinding whelps is for you! You can go back at 60 and grind these, or you can add these to your leveling experience and make some gold along the way. These whelps drop Small Flame Sacs, which can be used to craft Dragonbreath Chili (Cooking), Fire Protection Potion (Alchemy), and Flame Deflector (Engineering). Each type of whelp listed below can also drop a Whelpling Pet that can sell for a lot of gold on the Auction House. Keep in mind that the pet is very rare, it's around a 1 in 1,000 drop rate. So, don't count on getting one of those unless you are super dedicated to the grind.

Crimson Whelps (Levels 25-26)

You'll find Crimson Whelps in the Wetlands. You'll want to be level 26+ to kill them efficiently, but higher is better for speed. They can drop the Tiny Crimson Whelpling pet!

Dreaming Whelps (Levels 35 - 36)

Dreaming Whelps can be found in the Swamp of Sorrows. You'll need to be level 36+ to kill these efficiently. This is a pretty popular spot, so you might not be alone in the area unless you leveled up pretty fast or are on a smaller server. They have a possibility of dropping a Tiny Emerald Whelping pet.

Scalding Whelps (Levels 39-40)

Scalding Whelps are over in the Badlands, and will require you to be around 40+ to take these down efficiently. This is probably going to be less popular than the Swamp of Sorrows location. The Dark Whelpling Pet is a possible drop from these.

Locate and Sell Special Vendor Items

Hunt down items that are on a cooldown. There are a number of recipes, patterns, and items that are available from vendors that offer them in a limited supply. Once purchased, these items will not be available again until after their respective cooldown expires. A good example is the Schematic: Goblin Jumper Cables. These items usually sell for a significant profit. So check the AH for the prices of the items and then track down these vendors and regularly check to see If these items are available. If they are, buy them up and sell them. Since some of these recipes are in major cities, you can use alts to your advantage here by parking them near NPCs that sell the items of interest. Additionally, there are recipes and patterns that are only available as quest rewards. Usually you can attempt to sell these as well, especially on the Neutral AH.
