    Have any advice?

    Hey, I'm fairly new to gold making in WoW although I have been wanting to get into it for quite some time. After lurking through various sections here, listening to a few different podcasts and trying to absorb all of the other information I can find.

    The question I'd like to ask would be a 'What would you do in my shoes' question. I already have a somewhat decent transmog flipping buisness going but I'd love some suggestions on what else I could do in my current situation. Below are the details of what I have atm.

    Lv 60 - 375 BS/Tailoring - Won't be leveling up, ever. - 20k gold - 200k worth of reasonably priced auctions - Income of about 1-3k per day
    Lv 62 - 300 Skinning/Mining - Will be leveling to max. - 2k gold

    Another question I have is, does anyone know of any good podcasts for me to check out? (I currently listen to Power Word Gold & Call To Auction)

    *Sorry if this is the wrong section to post this in!

    Your first priority should be leveling yourself up. Sticking with your gatherers on your level 62 wouldn't be a bad idea as both can get you some more gold for your nest egg during the process.

    Even if you don't want to, I'd level up that level 60. You've made it through the BC portion of the trades, which is very expensive to do now. If you don't level him up, then those trades are sitting idle and are of very limited use to you. You can make some of the shirts and a few transmog pieces but that's about it. Other than that those trades are going to waste. If you *really* don't want to make that push, then just get him to 80 and make an alch/scribe. At least then those trades will be of some use to you, and it'd be less leveling. As a bonus those are the two cheapest trades to level up.

    Once your 62 is leveled up I'd make him a JC/Enchanter for shuffling. Not as good as it was in Cataclysm but still good, especially if you have a transmute alch handy.

    Following that...more 90s! The more trades you have the more diverse you can be in your gold making activities. If a person really wants to hit the AH with their trades I'd suggest trying to make one of every profession (cept engineering, that's kind of optional if you have an unused prof spot laying around) and a miner for smelting purposes.

    Thanks for the reply. I was going to keep that one character at lv 60, but if it will end up making me a lot more gold I think I will level her up to 90 eventually. Getting a lot of 90s may take me awhile, I'm one of those people who reads every single bit of quest text while leveling but I'll try. =)
    Reach 100k - Earn an average of 5k per day. - Buy a full set of T3 (any set) from the BMAH

    I was as well on the first toon through and it is not a bad thing. However by your 2nd and 3rd level 90's the quest text tends to blur out. :P
    Agreed you need more toons and more professions to up the volume of business you do, however not impossible. As you know, and already do, transmog is viable at any level.... as is general flipping. Even something as small as turning cloth to bolts can prove profitable. I would also look at a few of the guides here regarding start up capital. Limited supply route guides and the like can become very handy when starting with little investment and limited professions.

    Only thing I would suggest is that your read every quest mentality is usually best kept to one toon. Use this to level up and skip through quests accordingly. Then when you hit max level you can go back and fill in for loremaster. I do recommend that whichever toon that is be an enchanter to disenchant the rewards as necessary.

    Good luck!

    The big thing you need to do is figure out what you are trying to accomplish, and what you hope to get out of your gold making. Once you have that figured out you can take the necessary steps to level additional characters/professions to meet your goals. (For instance leveling your miner/skinner you will want to save all of your ore/leather to accommodate leveling a leather worker and jewel-crafter. If a leather worker does not fit into your plans it may be better now to drop skinning and take herbalism to help out for leveling a scribe/alchemist in the future) Just try to stay a step ahead since we all know time is money! Good luck!!
