    Collection of Useful Gold Making Threads

    This thread is a compilation of the best threads I've seen so far on the Consortium (if you think a post should be on here, feel free to reply here or PM me). These threads should answer most of the basic questions we see here on a daily basis and the previous compilation has taught me alot about goldmaking. You'll probably notice that alot of the threads are from WotLK and Cataclysm and that the items mentioned are much different than the items we craft now. Don't panic! The basic ideas in these posts all still apply today and with a little thinking on your side they still have amazing good use today. Credits go to @Reverb (add rep) for being the original poster of this list, I simply removed and added a few topics.

    UPDATE 6th of August 2013: I've tried to make it more clear which threads you should start at by rating each thread with a difficulty, 1 stars cover basics and other information for new players (*), 2 stars are medium level threads (**) and 3 star threads cover the more advanced topics (***). I've tried my best to give every thread a good rating, I'd really appreciate it if you give your feedback if you think a thread should get a different rating.

    Thanks for keeping things up to date Mithrildar. +rep

    Everyone should remember that in gold making there aren't really any "secrets" of "ultimate methods" to make gold. Sure, you can refine the gold making process, stream line it, make it more efficient, outsource some of the work. But at the end of the day if you want to make a lot of consistent gold you need to diversify your gold making and be in as many profitable markets as you can possibly keep track of.

    Something like limited supply items from pre-bc and tbc vendors may seem useless. But you are buying them for 1-4g each and selling them frequently for 200-500g each. I make 5k-10k gold a week from limited supply items alone. 15 minutes every couple of days restocking, and then just reposting them whenever they expire. Very little work involved.

    I've updated the thread to make it easier for new players to browse. I've rated each thread with a 3 star system, where 1 star threads are recommended for new goblins, 2 star threads are for goblins with some experience and 3 star threads are for experienced goblins looking for more advanced techniques. Please tell me if you don't agree with a rating for a specific thread.

    I've also slacked with adding new threads in the last month, so if I've missed one please tell me.

    Keeping them 'up to date' would purely be up to the original poster, so you'd have to PM each and every one of them about that though at this stage I doubt that they will be as a lot of these post's are going on 5 years old since their last edit so there is no point.

    Ahh fair enough. That would be a ton of work. Better off just being an Ethereal Contributor and getting that gold guide!

    Fair question, and something we've discussed a lot on the Wind Trader boards. @Kakkarott makes a valid point, and while @Mithrildar tried to prune and organize the threads so that they'd be reasonably up-to-date, the reality is that once WoD hit, a lot of the core information in those threads changed. But not all of it. Sorting out which aspects of each thread are relevant versus which aspects are for historic interest only would be a pretty hellish task.

    It's possible that this whole link needs to be archived rather than stickied (much as I hate to do that with @Mithrildar's amazing work). I'll talk to @Sterling about it and take another peek at the threads.

    Your best bet, if you want purely up-to-date information, is to stay active on these boards and ask questions as they arise!
