3 Steps to Never Be Broke Again (World of Warcraft Gold Guide)

3 Steps to Never Be Broke Again (World of Warcraft Gold Guide)


Can’t run! Can’t run from me! I’m comin to get ya! Ahahahaha! Hey there, guys! This is Reckles with WTBGold and today we’re
not going to be talking about how to make a million gold or a gazillion gold an hour. Instead we’re just gonna be…I just got finished
with my move, my studio is officially set up! I have a green screen. If I wear a green shirt, I’m gonna be invisible. With that, I just wanna get back to the basics,
and I want to talk to you guys about just how to not be broke ever again. Let’s not worry about makin a bajillion gold,
let’s just not be broke. So I have 3 things, if you just make it part
of how you play WoW, you will be fine. You maybe won’t be rich, but you’ll be fine. Actually, first. First, let me show off my new studio real
quick. I’m wearin pajama pants, don’t tell anyone. So, this is what it looks like, I’ll do a
full walk through if you want. The audio here might be a little echoey, but
that’s just because…that’s just because I gotta get all this foam padding stuff. These are not the normal things, these go
in the corners and they trap the low sounds. If you want me to do a video on that, just
talking about, “hey, you’re an aspiring YouTuber, you want to know how to get started, then
let me know and I’ll do a video on that. But let’s get into it. Now, the first thing that I wish I could say
was only a new player problem, but I see people who have been playing since vanilla do this
all the time. They skip looting. Step number one is loot everything. Get into the habit of looting everything. Like, you may think 12 silver, or 1 tidespray
linen, or 1 uncommon armor piece isn’t worth it, but I promise you it is. Just since BFA, on one character, I’ve looted
500,000 gold. On my demon hunter that I’ve had since the
launch of legion, I’ve looted 5 million gold and I don’t sell anything on him. I have a bank toon for that. If you skip loot, you’re missing out on a
lot of cumulative stuff. Just to test this out, I went out and did
2 zones worth of world quests. And my results were, I got 500 gold in cash
and vendor items, I got 300 gold in cloth, and 2500 gold in disenchantable stuff. I wasn’t going out of my way, I was just clicking
on all the sparkly stuff on the ground. Now, let’s say you don’t have enchanting on
that toon. Let’s just round it to like, ehhh 2000 gold
a day that you’re missing out on. That’s not a whole lot. But that’s 60,000 gold a month. That’s 700,000 gold a year. And that 700,000 gold is the difference between
feeling like “Ehhh, I’m alright.” And “Broke.” But let’s take away your excuses. Why might you not be looting things. Well first, you might just not see it. If you don’t see the sparkles, go into your
game settings, systems, graphics, and then turn that up to at least high. There’s not much of a difference between high
and ultra, but there’s a huge difference between low and high. Next, you might just think that it takes too
much time. The first thing I do on every single character
I roll is I turn on auto loot. That way, I just right click with my mouse,
and it automatically loots things. We’re good to go. Another little trick. This one doesn’t actually change things that
much, but I see you guys asking for it down in the comments all the time. There’s an addon called faster loot. And what this does is it just takes away the
window when you click on something and it like, loots one item, and then it loots another
item, and then it loots another item. That’s gone. So, you click on something and it’s immediately
in your bags. Like I said, it only subtracts like, a second
per looting, but it stops sucking. It doesn’t feel slow to loot anymore, it’s
just click. Done. And you’re moving on about your day. The last and final tip for looting. Like I told you, this is all basic stuff,
right? The last and final tip is to download tradeskillmaster. Now, I know you may think Tradeskillmaster
is a big hunkamonk. It is. It’s a big program. But the best thing that it does for most players
is tooltips. It gives you the price, the value of everything
you loot in the tooltips. And that does, I guarantee you, that you’ve
been running an old raid, or you ran uldaman, and you vendored an item that you didn’t know
was worth 50,000 gold. If you get a super rare BoE, you now know
that you can sell it for 250,000 gold when you might have just put it up on the auction
house for 30k because that would have made you happy. When people would have spent 250k on it. Now, the second habit I want y’all to get
into the habit of, is never passing up a node. Just tell yourself the mantra, whenever you
log in. I will never pass up a node today. Every time you see that little bitty dot in
your minimap, I want you to click on it. Now, if you have mining and herbalism, this
is great, it’s a lot easier, you’ll make a lot more gold this way. But at the same time, you may be passing up
more nodes than you realize. For instance, I went out and did a test. With the two world quest zones, and in that
same time, I also got about 300 herbs and ore. Let’s assume 20 gold average, something like
that for all herbs and ore combined. That’s an extra 6k. Again, 6k might not seem like much but when
you add it up monthly and yearly that’s 2 million gold a year. And that’s the difference between being broke
and being like, hella comfortable. I want you to stop thinking of each node as
like, 5 seconds out of your way, and instead think of it as that node will yield…a monelite
node will yield an average of 4.5 ore. Each ore will sell for an average of 40-50
gold. Then that’s a lot better. 200 gold for 5 seconds, that’s a better trade
off. And the other thing I want to say here is
don’t pass up fishing nodes. In my 2-zone test, I actually did pass up
every fishing node, but that’s because I didn’t have the find fish option, so if you also,
I want you to look on your minimap, click on the magnifying glass and see if you have
the option to “find fish.” If you don’t here’s what I want you to do. You gotta fish up the weather beaten journal. To get it, take the portal to Karazhan, head
out to north or south stranglethorn vale. There are pools of wreckage that give iron-bound
trunks all along the coast. And the journal will be in there. I got mine in my second one. So, fish are selling for about 20 gold. Each pool has an average of 4 casts in it,
and each cast takes 10 seconds, so that’s 100 gold in 40 seconds. That’s fine. Alright, so the first two habits that we talked
about are all about getting more stuff on just a regular basis while you’re doing the
things you’re already doing. The third thing is the other end of the equation. You gotta sell the stuff. You gotta get into a habit of using the auction
house. A lot of people avoid the auction house. They don’t like it, they don’t want to spend
all day at the auction house so here’s what you do. Get into the habit of just logging out of
your toon at a mailbox, by the auction house. What you’re going to do, especially if you
have the addon tradeskillmaster, is you’re just going to while you’re there, run up to
the auctioneer, scroll your mousewheel to post everything, and then you go log out by
the mailbox. This actually does a couple cool things. It gets you into the habit of consistency. Constantly selling things every day. It stops you from stockpiling things and holding
on to them in case some day they grow. Whatever. Whatever. Just get it out of your bags and make your
gold. Make your gold! The second cool thing it does, whenever you
log into that character again, it reinforces how fun it can be to make gold. Like, you’re there at the mailbox so of course,
before you go out and do all your world quest stuff, or your raids or whatever you do, you’re
gonna check the mailbox. And you’ll see that “holy crap, I made 45k
while I was asleep. That’s a really good feeling. And then you think “hmmm, I bet if I spent
an extra 10 minutes here, I could turn that 45k into 60k. And then you do that and it works and you
get 60k and you’re like “ooooo! If I rolled a second toon, and started using
more professions, I could double that. And then you’re getting like, 300,000 gold
and you’re making millions and you have more wowtokens than you know what to do with. Or maybe you don’t. I’m not saying that you have to love goldmaking. But it’s fun, and it’s addictive. And it’s a good time. There are so many ways to enjoy goldmaking. I’m gonna leave some links down in the description,
some really cool goldmakers out there. There’s billy vahdis, and hikons. Who are good friends of the channel and they’ve
helped me out a lot. What they do is, you know how some pets are
more expensive on some servers and they’re really cheap on others? They just do something called pet arbitrage,
where they buy the pets on the cheap servers and sell them on the more expensive ones,
and that’s just free – they’re just generating wowtokens day in and day out. Gumdrops the guy who runs the tradeskillmaster
discord, he just does crafting professions. And he keeps an eye out for really cheap materials. I do a very similar thing, I just do crafting
profession stuff, for the most part, but I love farming. I’m super risk-averse guys, so to me, there’s
added benefit if I can look at my mailbox and even if it’s not as big as hikons or gumdrops
or some of those other big players, I know that 100% of what I’m looting is pure profit. And that feels great. So go check those guys out. I hope you find something that you enjoy. Again, with this video, I’m not trying to
get you to go out and be a goldmaker and have 5 druids multiboxing. I just want you to do what you normally do
on a day to day basis, but maybe, maybe you’ll catch the bug. And then you’ll dip your toes into the hot
tub of goldmaking a little more. But that’s it for me. Thank you so much for watching. I’m glad to be back, I missed you guys a whole
bunch. If you aren’t subscribed, click all the buttons! Like! Thumbs up! All that good stuff and I’ll talk to y’all
later. Have a great day guys. Good luck, and happy gold making.

  1. Small note about the weather beaten journal for finding fish – it'll also drop out of the bags of shiney things you get from the daily fishing quests. You'd use to get it 90% of the time if you had fishing skill 100 – I don't know how it does now with the way they broke up the skills by xpac. Just in case – if it's a quick daily it's worth just doing it real quick before trekking all the way down to StV.

  2. i think its kind of ironic, how it is fun to make money in a video game
    but there is only half of this enthusiasm if its real life money

  3. So i have been watching you videos for a long time now, but i am still struggling with time verve's gold making. I would like to be able to buy 4 wow tokens a month, one for me, my wife, and one for each of my kids. I could get my kids to dedicate an hour or maybe two on a Friday night to help make the gold we would all need to cover the monthly subs. Time is not on my side, do you have any suggestions that would help make at least enough for the tokens monthly , or maybe even something we could all do during the holidays say a few hours every couple of days to make enough to cover us fir a year? so that's like 48 tokens. we are on EU the the token price as always is higher that US.

  4. Might just have to get that addon. I'd love to not have to pay for my 2 subs anymore. Or maybe just get 1 off my back.
    Edit; Also love the way this video is made. Very amusing and quite straight to the point.
    Edit2; Risk averse? Heck yes. Interested in 100% profit? Heck yes.

  5. Awesome Video Reckles! Always good to have some intro stuff for first timer's out there. And Pick Shit Up cannot be said enough ^^

  6. @WTBGold, what to do, if burning legion is not connect with different servers? I cannot buy cheap on one server, and mail it to another one – sell it.

  7. For those that don’t loot everything. The world drop epics I got back in the day set me up to be able to flip the AH through professions and not need to grind. Still to this day with 20 maxed toons I loot every mob. Just think that random mob you missed could have been the difference between you grinding now and you flipping a bank full of rare mounts so you can afford anything and do what you want.

  8. I really don't like TSM, its not intuitive, there doesn't seem to be a way where it auto populates sell things at ACTUAL undercutting prices. I just rolled on a new server, I went to sell 4 items, (yes, I have TSM desktop app already set to scan the new server AH) and NONE of the prices were competitive.

  9. At the same location as you were fishing at the floating boat wreckage but have not found any. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

  10. do u have a video by any chance on the best crafting patterns to go after? i'm talking like the best patterns that can make you u millions ie felsteel longsword and what not. it'd b awesome if u did, tryin to save up to pay for bfa with in game gold/ tokens, gettin thirsty different ways to raise it. been looking on google. figured if there were some crafted items that are popular sells that go for descent gold i could just buy mats, craft, post and do other %$#^ while they sit on the ah.

  11. I install TSM but didn't show me the prices in AH when I mouse over an item. Is there option that must be tag or something else?

  12. Honest question, how are you getting 5 herbs/ore per node? I only get 1 ore per normal node, maybe 2 ore if I’m lucky and I’ve never gotten more than 1 herb per node.

  13. I don't understand about the scrolling to post everything on the AH, I tried to do that with the add-on, but it didn't work

  14. BTW, I got my find fish book while fishing in Legion zones. Azshara iirc. When running old raid/dungeons, do a full clear. Kill everything and loot everything. I am surprised on the number of BOE items drop from the random trash mobs.

  15. How to not be broke in a game while he gets rich in real life off his YouTube channel about not being broke in a game only money people should worry about is real.

  16. I don't want to log in next to a mailbox because when I open it all I will see is my expired auctions sitting there reminding me that nothing I post ever sells.

  17. No addon needed or settings change just SHIFT & Click the sparkly vajazzle on the floor…. auto loot TADA easy peasy

  18. yes but how do you play the ah without all kinds of addons i dont want to change the game experience but i suck at selling on the ah

  19. I just did 1-60 on a new account. No heirlooms etc. I did pet battles in between Dungeon ques. No AH and just from looting and selling greys/greens/blues from the dungeons to a vendor i had 600 gold by 60.

  20. How could you ever possibly be broke in this new wow? You can literally sell your basic greens and herbs until lvl 20 and have more gold than you could ever know what to do with

  21. 100% of your looting is not pure profit because your time is worth something (and should be valued). good video none the less.

  22. Yeah, those nerds that don't have auto loot on and hog the loot window. Pita. You see them crouched down reading through the loot lol… i bet they don't even know there is an auto loot function…

  23. The issue is you need to keep rotating stuff to sell as people seem to pile onto the same bandwagon as just like eBay it's a race to the bottom

  24. I honestly dont give a crap about the 250k gold for transmog parts i will still sell them to any vendor because I have better things to do than putting that shit up a million times before someone buys it.

  25. in bfa don't farm ore or herbs
    UNTIL you do the quests to get herbalism 3 and ore 3 so when you get 100 sirens pollen it is actually 300 or 100 anchor weed plants = 300 anchor

  26. 6:04 how to get that map like u, it’s so easy to mining, please tell name and Website to download that , I’m new player 🙂

  27. That’s a good way to make nice gold. Grey items sell for 3-5 gold per piece , 5 mobs together may drop 2-3 gold, and not to mention greens , crafting materials that may drop. And sometimes they drop that expensive grey item that’s 10-30 gold by himself . You can make good gold with this if you persistent

  28. I don’t know why but on Eu servers I had decent amount of gold but never used for token. I pay my sub with real money cause I don’t see a reason to do with gold. But I keep my gold for mounts and to have it . I never know what would I need from AH and that I need the gold .

  29. Be careful going too hard on Selling Greens :/ not sure how so Many youtubers get it done but last Time i ran a Dungeon for tmog and Got something that was supposed to be like 100k Worth i tried Selling it for like 90 k and gave up after 3 months of nothing :/

  30. Am I the only one who has always been too OCD to NOT loot everything? My thought process was always…"that ONE thing I don't loot probably has a world drop on it"

  31. You can get the fish tracking book from doing fishing dailies in the capital cities as a reward in your fishing bag. Just thought I would add that…

  32. I didn't have headset on when I started this vid, and I couldn't stop fixating on: "I wonder how careful he has to be to cleanshave with that mole under his chin".

  33. Without TSM, I end up saving all BoE until I'm full or close to full after a run. I run to the AH and look up the BoE items with green items being searched without the affix as it would be the cheapest version of that item for transmog. I wouldn't spend 1,000 gold on an item with perfect stats if I was using it only for transmog. If I was a Disenchanter I would disenchant anything that I would vender if the materials would be obviously more profitable. I've tried using TSM but it seems to just be too much nonsense and doesn't utilize my strategy removing the affix of green BoE items.

  34. I feel there not giving us much to make money with in the profession department its like there trying to force ppl to buy and sell wow tokens now besides gathering professions all other professions are a waste of time this expansion been back a month playing BFA and I'm over it and bored already world of grind craft

  35. made over 200-300k gold this expansion only buy stopping for mining nodes doing WQ's, crafting follower items as blacksmith gathered while doing shit I woulda done anyways like raids and wq's. Also Ive been selling materials i.e ruby gems on the auction house. Having all ready mastered the fundamentals of abusing Auctionator to where I know find posting loot of any kind which ive gathered over the course of a gaming session , it feels like free gold when I click postal the next day to cash in on the 5-10k I just made in what felt like five minutes of work, Definitely recommend you make this a habit whether or not you already have enough gold or not. Really good video about (in my opinion) how to passively make thousands of gold a day not even thinking about it. Cool to see a gold video that's about actual ways you should already be making gold effortlessly instead of "How to make 200 000g/h SERIOUS GOLD MAKING FARM SPOT" and have it rely on rare old content transmog loot which will take you weeks to sell and prolly doesnt net the 200k on your realm!

  36. gold making is addictive af.. i stopped playing the game entirely and i focus only on dominating the market… even if i am just scratching the surface of the ocean of gold out there 😉

  37. well they made it that everything goes to the mailbox if you don't loot which screws skinners if you hit their target also

  38. More often than not, I feel like I am the only one in a dungeon group who's looting at all. I always loot everything… I literally see it as gold just sitting there.. why would I NOT pick it up?
