Much like Blizzard’s latest expansion, Battle for Azeroth, Gold farming is likely to be a major part of the game in Classic WoW. Players will need WOWC Gold to pay for repairs, to buy consumables for raids and battlegrounds, and to buy specific items to advance their character. Having a healthy WOWC Gold balance will make your gaming experience much easier, which is why we have put together some top tips for Gold farming in Classic WoW. These tips apply to all classes and races, rather than focusing on methods in which one class has an advantage. While some players choose to buy WOWC Gold, in-game Gold farming is a fun and less risky alternative.
Jadefire Farm Run in Northern Fellwood
In northern Fellwood there are mobs of level 52-53 Satyrs which will be called Jadefire Betrayer, Jadefire Trickster, and Jadefire Hellcaster. These mobs drop lots of Runecloth and also a decent amount of Felcloth, both of which you can sell on the Auction House. Felcloth, in particular, tends to sell well because the cloth is used in some significant tailoring patterns for Warlocks and other cloth wearing classes. They also drop a consumable called Demonic Rune which is an important consumable for mana classes in Classic WoW raids.
Hearthglen Farm in Western Plaguelands
In the north end of Western Plaguelands, there’s a town called Hearthglen which is home to level 53-57 Scarlet Priests, Sentinels, Paladins, and so on. These mobs have a high drop rate for Runecloth, as well as some green bind on equip items you can sell on the Auction House. What makes this farm potentially very lucrative is that the tower located just outside of Hearthglen has around 7 Scarlet Spellbinder enemies housed in and around it. Scarlet Spellbinders drop Formula: Enchant Weapon – Crusader, which is highly sought after and sells well on the Auction House.
Shadowfang Keep in Silverpine Forest
Shadowfang Keep is a level 18 to 28 dungeon located in the horde territory of Silverpine Forest. If you’re wondering why a level 60 would want to farm such a low-level dungeon, it’s because this dungeon drops some great bind on equip gear that is very popular with low-level twinks. Twinks are players who turn off their Experience (XP), choosing to remain at a certain level and obtain all the best gear for that level and level 19 seems to be the preferred level to twink at.
The items you are looking for in this dungeon are Assasin’s Blade, Shadowfang, Night Reaver, Witching Stave, Black Malice, and Guillotine Axe. These items are all blue (rare) bind on equip items that you can sell to other players, or on the Auction House.
Farming for Junk Items to Vendor
Farming for junk items is often overlooked as a way to make some easy gold since there are more lucrative farms available. However, plenty of animal or monster mobs will drop level 1 items in high amounts, which you can vendor for a decent amount of WoW Classic Gold once you have accumulated multiple stacks. If you’re looking for an easy way to farm for WOWC Gold, one that doesn’t require having any professions or class-specific advantages, and don’t want to buy World of Warcraft Classic Gold, then this is the method for you.
For this type of farming, you want to focus in particular on two locations. The first is in Swamp of Sorrows in southern Eastern Kingdoms, where you want to farm level 36-37 Swamp Jaguar mobs. These mobs drop Long Soft Tail and Bristly Whisker in high numbers. The second place you want to farm is in Stranglethorn Vale where you can kill the level 41-42 Thrashtail Basilisk NPCs. Thes mobs drop Large Basilisk Tail, Squishy Basilisk Eye, Basilisk Heart, and Primastic Basilisk Scale. As an added bonus both of these mobs will also drop some white and green items which you can either vendor or sell on the Auction House.
Although not super popular, this type of Gold farming can be efficient and convenient because you will likely be leveling in these areas anyway. This is particularly true for Stranglethorn Vale where players tend to spend a large portion of their leveling.
