Farming WoW loot is not exactly the best way to make gold in this game. However, it is 100% profit. The only thing you will invest is your time.
Although the best method of cultivating gold is to buy and resell items at the Auction House for profit, you can make good money if you know where, what and how to buy. So here are two great points about WoW loot farming.
The Underbog – Hibiscus Sanguine
Sanguine Hibiscus is an herb that does not require Herbalism to be resolved. Can be found inside The Underbog in Zangarmarsh. This herb is required in piles of 5, to complete a quest that gives reputation to the Sporeggar faction. Many players increase their reputation with this faction nowadays, to be able to buy the Tiny Spore Bat, which Sporeggar Quartermaster sells.
Now, farming Hangiscus Sanguine is not difficult at all. All you have to do is go to The Underbog and collect all the Sanguine Hibiscus knots that open between the entrance and the bridge that leads to the second boss. Then just go back to the entrance, exit, reset and repeat. Usually get about 20-25 Hibiscus Sanguine for jogging. Crowds similar to the plants inside and the spore sticks also release this herb and you can grind them if you wish.
A stack of 5 hibiscus sometimes sells for up to 100g. The average price for a stack of 5 is 50g anyway.
Shadowmoon Valley – The Doomwalker
The second largest WoW loot farming site is in the eastern part of the Shadowmoon Valley. Doomwalker is the caretaker of the entrance to the Black Temple. Although it is a tough crowd to beat with a level 80 tank, it should not be a problem to beat with any level 85 class. Rogues may have a problem killing this boss, but he can not. I tell you for sure, I have not tried it with my Rogue.
The most important skill of the boss is its Crush Armor, an armored unlock that accumulates and reduces your armor by 10% per stack. If you accumulate a lot of piles, the boss attacks will become quite powerful. However, as I said, with a level 85 character, with a little smoothing and a few pots, this boss doesn’t have to be tough. However, to make sure you kill it, a Hunter, a Death Knight or Paladin are the most indicated classes to farm it.
Doomwalker releases various epic BoE items which look nice and players will buy them to change their armor look. Some of the items like Ethereum Nexus-Reaver or Tempest Talon sell for over 1000g.
The sucking part about this boss is that it has a 2-3 day regenerative cooling. And if you are not there when you give birth, someone else will kill you. I usually have my hunter registered there and check the place every morning.
