Vendor Resale--The Best Way to Make WoW Gold

By far the quickest and easiest way to make gold is vendor resale, which basically means you take items that you buy from a vendor and re-sell it on the Auction House for a profit. It is easy to gain at least double your money (100% profit), but I sell items all day long for 2700% profit. How is this possible? I take an item(ie: Formula: Enchant Chest - Minor Mana) that costs a mere 3 silver, put it on the auction house for 85 silver (more than 28 times what I paid for it). Why do people pay so much for an item you ask? The three main reason I can think of are 1) They bought their gold and now have plenty, so they just don't care how much something costs 2) They don't want to make the trip from, let's say Darnassus to Ironforge so they pay a little extra to save them time for the trip or 3) They're just too
lazy (or too dumb) to figure out that the vendor right next to the auction house sells it for so much less. Believe it or not, most people fall into the third category and will buy your stuff all day long every day
of the week.

Most items can be purchased in Stormwind or Ironforge, so even a level 1 or 2 character can start making gold. If you are just getting started, have a buddy spot you a couple of gold - you can pay him/her back double by the end of the day. If you are just getting started, I recommend sticking to the cheaper items, as you can purchase more of them and have more items on the AH at any given time. As your bank account builds up, you can buy more of the higher-priced items from the vendors and
watch your gold multiply even faster. One of the first things I recommend you invest in is Traveler's Backpacks. These are 16-slot bags, just like the one you start out with in WOW, and you can hold 4. They currently run between 9 - 13 gold on my server, although you can occasionally find them for 5 - 8 gold. These are a must watch on the AH, I'll pick them up by the dozen when someone drops them on
the AH for 6 gold (6g) a piece, then re-sell them for 11 - 13g each.

Things to look for:

"pets" - especially Cat Carrier (white kitten) if you ha en to see "Little Timmy" walking around Stormwind trying to sell.
Go to any of the information sites listed under the LINKS chapter (Thottbot or Allakhazam) and type “pattern:” or “recipe:” in the search bar. You will get a complete list of all items that are available. Just look for which ones are available for purchase from a vendor, click on it and it will show you exactly where to find that vendor.

Things not to resale:
general su lies (thread, food, reagents, armor, weapons, etc.)
Exception: Heavy Quiver, which can be bought for 20s and sold on AH for around 2g

Great article. I agree that reselling is a great way to make gold in wow. My favorite is the selling of pets which many players like to collect - but can't find. But there's a trick to selling them.

I explain how in my own wow gold making guide which is free to subscribers.

For the Alliance!
