How To Farm Gold In Wow For Low Level Characters

If you have a low level character and need lots of gold to help you get the armour and weapons you need to level up, one of the tactics you want to learn is how to farm gold in WoW. This is the practice of collecting a commodity to sell in the auction house for gold. Picking the right resource to collect is essential as they all vary in price depending on the availabilty of it. The harder the resource is to find the more people are prepared to pay for other people to do the hard work and get it. Of course the other side of the coin is to collect something that is in abundance but collecting large amounts of it. Usually if something is easy to come by it generally means it has lots of uses and lots of people will want to buy it.

How to farm gold by mining for copper ore

One of the skills that you can learn as a low level character is mining. This is the art of extracting various ores from mining nodes throughout the World of Warcraft maps. Copper ore is accessible to low levels to and is an ideal way how to farm gold. All you need is a level 5 character and a mining pickaxe. Mining copper will earn you a good amount of gold in a day to help fill your coffers and your bank account. Copper ore veins can be found in all low level map zones so it means you won't have to travel very far to find some. The great thing about this type of mining is that you only need level 1 mining so you can begin mining copper straight away after you have learned the trade from the trainer.

Where and how to farm gold by mining copper

Where to mine for copper will of course depend on which race your character is and your starting point in the World of Warcraft. One of the best ways to find copper resources is to download and install some handy add ons that help you by creating a path that you can use in game to find your way to them. One of my favorite gold farming addons is called Tycoon.

Tycoon will use your auction house data to scan prices for mining and provide you the optimized, highest gold per hour route. Tycoon also provides higher level mining routes for later stages of the game. It even provides a meter displaying your estimated gold per hour depending on the value of the materials you find, and your pace at farming.

How to farm gold by selling copper and other items

In conclusion copper is a very versatile resource solely for the fact that it can be used for some many things. This makes it a very good commodity to have for most players. When it comes to selling it, it would be advisable to check the auction house and see what is currently being sold. Again, a WoW Gold Addon like Tycoon comes in handy for this

Here are some of the options you should consider :-

Sell the ore as it comes.

Prospect the ore and sell the resulting gems

Prospect the ore and make low level jewellery out of the gems

Smelt the ore into copper bars and list sell them in auctions

Mine or buy tin ore and smelt copper and tin ore together to make bronze bars

What you get for them in the auction house will of course totally depend on the time of day and your realm. Use your WoW Gold Addon to search frequently and find the hot items on the Auction House.
