One of the many techniques you can use to make gold in wow.
First off, if you want to make a lot of gold in World of Warcraft than the most valuable guide you can read is Valkor's Gold Making Guide.
There are a ton of ways you can make gold in wow. I'm just going to share some tips that I have used with much success. I have 5 different level 70 characters (using a wow leveling guide) and 4 other alts all over level 40. I've learned quite a bit about making gold in world of warcraft and I'm currently sitting at 30,000 gold on the Sen'jin realm and 22,000 gold in the Zul'jin realm.
How did I make all of that moola in WOW you ask? Most people assume that in order to make a bunch of gold that you have to slave four hundreds of hours either grinding a particular mob for a rare drop, or going on countless 10-40 man raids. Thats one way to do it, but it's definatlely not how I got up to over 50,000 gold combined. lol. I don't have that much time!I laugh every time I see a gold farmer. Gold farming companies have NO BRAINS..lol. Why would you pay someone...no why would someone want to get paid for spending 12 hours killing the same mob over and over again? The secret is in manipulating the Auction House. It's really easy and anyone can do it.
These secrets were once..well..a big secret, but now more people are catching on. It is still highly profitable though. There are many different AH strategies you can use, I'm just going to share a few of them briefly. For some of these strategies you will need between 50 - 100 gold to spend.
Method #1 (note: Enchanting is required):
Once you have your enchanting skill level up enough here is what I want you to do. Do a search on the AH for level 62 - 70 armor items, and it doesn't matter what kind they are as long as they are level 62 - 70. (also note: the economy varies on different realms, make sure you are not using this technique on a brand new or VERY VERY low populated realm. When I say low population I only mean the realms that show up as "recommended" on the server list.)
What you want to do is bid on every single armor item (62 - 70) that is priced under 3g. I usually don't bid on anything over 3g, but sometimes I make an exception. Bid on EVERY piece of armor under that price because you will most likely only win about 70% of them or so.
Once you have won your auctions (you should have 10-30 items) you need to disenchant them. You will most likely get Arcane dust from each one and hopefully you'll get them in higher stacks (3+) but if not don't worry.
Once you have your arcane dust here is what you are going to do. Do a quick search at the AH for Arcane Dust and find out how many are listed...there will most likely be quite a few. Now to do this right you need to wait until 6:00 (EST for US realms) to list your Arcane Dust. It's best to list it between 6:00 & 11:00 PM (EST for US realms)
Now your going to separate EVERY single one of your arcane dust. This works the best when you have at least 40 singles. If you don't you can still try it..just keep searching for 62-70 armor priced under 3g until you get enough. When you list them you are going to list them in batches at a time (not stacks..keep reading)
The first batch you are going to list for say 2.45g a piece (or more..NOT less). List the first 10 at this buyout price. (note: you are listening EACH one separately. So for the first 10 you have 10 separate auctions and so on) Then your going to list your next 15 at 2.75g (or similar). Then your next 10-15 should be around 2.99...and so forth.
HERE IS WHY YOU DO THIS. #1 you want to list all of your Arcane Dusts seperatly between 6 - PM & 10 PM is because your auctions will be on the first page the following day (prime time..when the most amount of people are on)
The reason you list your first auctions lower is because people tend to buy whatever is cheaper..and when they scroll down and see all of your auctions they will see the price going up and some will assume that the prices will keep going up and will just buy the cheaper ones you have listed at the top.
I hope you get the idea. You WILL make a good amount of sales this way...but keep in mind the more you have listed the more likely people will buy from you. You don't have to control the market for this technuque to work either.
Say you buy a lvl 65 helm for 2.5 gold. The average amount of Arcane Dust you will get from that is 3 (in my studies.) So now you have 3 arcane dusts and you will sell them for around 2.5 gold.
YOU JUST MAKE 5 GOLD FOR EACH ITEM YOU BOUGHT!!

I've leveled 5 characters to 70 (both horde and alliance) and I COULD NOT have done it without the help of Brian Kopp's Guide & Joana's Guide.
