Here's some good ideas for making a lot of gold in wow. And, like everywhere else, and in the World of Warcraft Gold makes the world go round.

Make Good use of the Auction House
This is the oldest formula known to man: buy low, sell high

The Auction House Agent
Roll up an Auction House agent. The agent is just a character you have that you use only for Auction House operations. This character checks the mail, mails off wow gold, and places bids. Of course, make sure this character is on the same server with your main character.

Identify a product you want to work with and figure out what the average buyout price is. Bid on Short and Medium auctions for as little as you can. Buyout other auctions for significantly less than your Buyout. Bid on goods usually sold singly that are stacked for a super discount.

A good product example is Black Pearls. These normally sell singly for one gold (or better) apiece. Watch for a stack of them to go on sale at a nice discount. Break up the stack, sell them singly, and you'll come out several gold ahead.

Market Trends
Learn to keep up with market price trends. You'll know what to sell when. It helps to specialize in a few items, to become familiar with their ups and downs. If you employ this technique successfully, you'll have enough cash on hand for your mount before you reach level 40.

Level Up for Profit
It can start paying off with the goods you'll loot as a level 40 and on up. Once you hit 55 and up the Auction House becomes very lucrative.

Troll the Auction House
Here's an old trick that real-world pawnshop speculators use. Using the Auction House agent we described earlier, constantly troll the Auction House looking for blue/purple items that are underpriced. (If you're a lower level, get a friend or a guildmate to loan you the gold to cover this.) Buy any such items, now resell them for a more appropriate buy out price. Be willing to wait for them to sell, and to run them through the Auction House again. Do this as a living, and you'll be sending your main character all the world of warcraft gold she needs.

Some General Auction House Tips
Always set a buyout price. Many people want something NOW.

If you're reselling stuff you bought cheap, set the minimum bid to just a bit more than you bought the item for, guaranteeing some small profit. Don't set a minimum bid to an exact amount. Make it something point something. People may believe a bid is placed move on the buyout price, or set a high bid.

Profitable Stuff to do at Levels 30 and Up
For some great drops, grind the level 30+ snapjaws. At Hillsbrad, Tarren Mill, there's a river running to the east. There's a couple dozen or so snapjaws spawned there at a time, in the river and along the riverbank. See how many you can grind in thirty minutes.

Here's the deal about snapjaws. They quite often drop loot worth one silver each (meat and scales). They also drop the occasional green item. But better than these are "Speckled Shell Fragments". Speckled Shell Fragments can be sold for 9 silver! Work hard enough, and you can make up to five gold in wow in an hour.

Profitable Stuff to do at Levels 55 and Up
30 to 50 gold in wow an hour? You can do it. In the eastern Plaguelands are three types of Plaguebats, and they are most lucrative for grinding. They drop pelts, eyes, fangs and ears (sometimes in multiples) that are worth up to 2 gold each. They drop green items as well.

Fishing for Fun and Profit
Remember through all these tips that the economy on each server is a bit different. That means you'll never be able to fully predict any prices.

Deviate fish, cooked up and stacked to 20, can sell for 15-25 gold on an auction house buyout. That's 50 silver and better per unit. If your cooking skill isn't high enough, store the deviates in the bank until you get that skill up.

Mining and skinning offer fast wow gold payouts. With mining at high levels you can get arcanites crystals that can sell for 20 to 25 gold.

Skinning is a great way to salvage something from those kills that don't drop anything. Skinning is easy to level up, making it quicker for you to get to those higher level gathers.
